Friday the 13th

Post # 1
There are lots of urban legends about Friday the 13th being unlucky, and I've found it can be an unlucky day on occasion, or just another ordinary day. What's the Pagan belief on the subject? I started searching online, but didn't get a definite answer as to whether it was considered lucky or unlucky, or just neutral for them.

law of attraction..

if you believe that it will be an unlucky day, then most probably it will be and vice versa.. Friday the 13Th is just like any other "urban legends" like bloody Mary, and the likes..

if you want to believe, then be it but that doesn't mean that your belief makes it the truth..

namaste.. ;)

Friday the 13 is just another day for me. The superstition is said by some to date back to the time of the Templars. It is believed that the majority of them were arrested on Friday the 13, 1307 by King Philip IV of France.

For me, it is a good day. 13 is the number of full moons in a year. Friday is Freyja's Day the Norse Goddess of Love.

I've read that people think its unlucky because thats the number of members a coven of witches would limit themselves to during the persecution of the Craft.

Speaking in terms of history, from what I've studied, the whole Friday the 13th being unlucky has origins to an incident concerning the Knights Templar. But I do agree that the matter of it being lucky or unlucky is solely up to the individual and how he/she perceives the day as being. Personally, I find it a lucky day.

I've always liked Friday the 13th just because it doesn't come around often and the superstitions around it make it a interesting though sadly normal day for me usually.

I'm waiting for the lucky Friday the 13th to come around! Today was just bad for me, for a variety of reasons. And does a void-of-course moon affect your luck in any way? I thought since it was a void-of-course moon, it might be another explanation for misfortune.

Ooh superstitions. I used to research them when I was a teen. Useless information that makes great conversation starters! Haha

Friday the 13th has many beliefs surrounding it. The first is that it is the witches' Sabbat, like Christians view Sunday. 13 was the number of witches believed to be in a coven. It was a powerful number.

This day was reinforced to be considered unlucky, as was stated, by the persecution of the Knight's Templar who became too rich and powerful for the King's liking. They were framed and arrested. They were tortured and what was supposedly "confessed" was only heard by the torturers and should not be believed. Those poor souls...
