The truth about Friday the 13th

Superstitions, spiritual believes, and even horror films often reference Friday the 13th. However, many people don’t know why, or the actual spiritual significance of the day. Since today is Friday the 13th here is a summary of the importance and impacts of Friday the 13th.


Friday the 13th didn’t always have such a terrible reputation. It was originally associated with the Divine Feminine, the Mother Goddess who nurtures all. Even in Roman times, the day was associated with the holy mother Venus, who bestowed feminine qualities like imagination, creativity and kindness on the worshippers. However, when the Church started its crusade against all things feminine and branding all free-thinking women as witches, the date too was branded as one of terrible evil.

The Number 13

While now primarily considered unlucky 13 is a number that many oriental religions hold holy. It stands for the number of cycles the Moon has in a year. Because of this the number has associations with rebirth, resurrection, death and mortality. In astrology, it is the moon that nurtures our emotions and hones our instincts, making us wiser and world-wearier. It also makes us more receptive to energy changes and more sensitive to the spiritual realm.

Friday the 13th has often been held in high regards by women and the pagan community. Many rituals and spells are often conducted on this day in order to make the most of this beautiful energy. This has also helped to contribute to the fear surrounding Friday the 13th. It was an important day for many who worshipped the cycles of nature (often referred to as witches). We all have feminine energy in us, so Friday the 13th is not just for women. It is a day for all of us to honor or own abilities to create and receive energy from the world around us.

The Truth

Friday the 13th is not an unlucky day. Friday the 13th is the day of the Goddess and is a beautiful day for creating and celebrating life. May you find imagination, creativity and kindness in your heart this Venus Day. A day to worship the Divine Feminine that lives in us all and to honor the cycles of creation and death and rebirth.
