Friday the 13: Luckiest Day of the Week!
It’s time to set the record straight: Friday the 13 is not an unlucky day! Actually it’s a very lucky day, especially for love. So how did it get its bad rap?

Imagine a group so afraid of the influence of the ancient Mother Goddess that they re-wrote the story and changed an incredibly auspicious and loving day into one intended to spread feelings of fear and insecurity. What kind of mind thought that was a better idea?

Let's explore how Friday the 13 used to be celebrated before it was condemned as evil, and open up to having fun this Friday the 13!

In ancient Western cultures, Friday was celebrated as Goddess day, especially the Goddess of Love, fertility and sexuality. This sacred day combined with her sacred number 13, the number of Moon cycles in a lunar year, made this special Friday a day of luck, healing, love and sacred ecstasy. This is why the group may have feared the Goddess’s power.

Whether Friday was sacred to Greek Aphrodite, Egyptian Hathor, Roman Venus or Germanic Freya, it was a day to celebrate life and love, feasting on delicious food and the delights of sex. Freya gives her name to Friday (Freya’s day) just as the Romans gave the name dies Veneris after Venus to this day.

This Friday the 13, Venus dances with Neptune before she moves out of the intellectual sign of Aquarius into the heartfelt sign of Pisces. Let yourself imagine love and pleasure -- and then go and create it!
