Friday the 13th: Beware of Grouchiness

Even the stars are grouchy this year on Friday the 13th, so you may very well feel like joining the millions of others who stay in bed to avoid the drama.

The full Moon on June 12, followed by a long void-of-course Moon overnight, may leave you feeling exceptionally groggy or emotionally out of sorts when your alarm rings Friday morning. And, brewing in the wings is a volatile clash between angry Mars and power-driven Pluto, which could signal quick tempers and jangled nerves.

What's a Friggatriskaidekaphobe to do? (That's someone who fears Friday the 13th).

There's evidence that people do stay home this day. A few studies have shown fewer traffic accidents and violations occur on Friday the 13th because fewer people are driving. If you can, perhaps it would be wise to telecommute.

But, if you must go out, you could consider invoking the graces of Venus, the goddess of Fridays. She's feeling particularly good this Friday in her own sign Taurus. She likes beautiful, luxurious things, pleasures of all kinds, and harmonious social gatherings (no bickering, please). Treat yourself to a mocha on the way to work, and you're sure to put the goddess in a better mood.

The belief that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day is most likely a modern invention, combining the superstitions that Fridays and the number 13 are both unlucky. In contrast, in the Spanish-speaking world, Tuesday the 13th has been considered unlucky, or in Italy, it's Friday the 17th.

Friday the 13th happens on average once a year. However: heads up! Next year, 2015, has three of them -- in February, March and November.
