Happy Friday the 13th! A harbinger of good, an association with the divine feminine

In the current culture, Friday the 13th is largely considered an unlucky day. Funny thing is: I’ve always noticed I’ve had GREAT days on Friday the 13th. So much so, I look forward to them.

Deep in the recesses of my brain, I had this notion that it’s somehow associated with paganism and the divine feminine. So I decided to look it up today. Sure enough I pulled up an article from CNN:

But, as with most pagan things, it was condemned and deemed “unholy” when Christianity took hold, because it stood at odds with the new patriarchal order. If the rulers now consider god to be a single man, not many gods and goddesses, then the way to control that is to say anything the opposite is bad and wrong. So anything around the number 13 and feminine power was suddenly bad.

I like Friday the 13th. I Embrace its pagan divine feminine origins. I already feel it in my bones. It’s a day to celebrate. Celebrate the yin. Bask in your bleeding womanhood. Extend out loving kindness to your fellow women, men and all people. And hold yourself as holy.
