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.
