See table below for Friday the 13th Dates in 2023 we have two months with Friday the 13th – January, October

Some say, like the ancient Celtic and Norse peoples, 13 is a LUCKY number, and on Friday the 13th they took time to celebrate the Goddess because Friday is named after Freya the Norse name for Venus and 13 is her sacred number. So Friday the 13th was the perfect day to make love or do other ceremonies in honor of the Goddess.

For those who might not know – there are 5 Venus cycles that last about 19 months each – returning to a starting point every 8 years and in that 8 years Venus goes around the Sun 13 times. This links to the Fibonacci sequence: of 5, 8, 13 or  5 (Venus cycles) plus 8 (years) equals 13 circuits of Venus around the Sun. More on the current sacred Venus Journey 

Friday the 13th
As mentioned above Friday is Freya’s day (or the day linked with the planet Venus). This is about  Divine Feminine in her full power, great beauty, and from the perspective of the Norse/Vikings – her ability to be victorious in battle, embracing death and rebirth. Freya (Venus) was accomplished in sorcery, as well as overseeing the mysteries of sexuality and fertility. Thus, Freya as Venus is a powerful expression of the divine feminine that comes to us from pre-patriarchal times, and many of her stories have survived into current times..

Guardian of thresholds Freya was called upon to assist in the passage through birth, orgasm, and death. She holds destiny in her hand and her sexuality is her power source.

On Freya’s most sacred day here are some questions to consider?
Do you actively seek pleasure?
Are you courageous and confident?
Are you in charge of you own destiny?
Do you accept yourself, approve of your self and respect yourself?
Do you LOVE who you are?
Do stand gracefully in your power and thus empower others?
Do you embrace your innate ability to manifest magic and beauty?

The Sacred Number 13 - 16 minutes

by Cayelin K Castell

The Divine Feminine
and the Number 13

For many 13 represents the return of the Divine Feminine including the mysteries connected with Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary, Shekinah and Sophia. 13 is linked to the natural rhythms and cycles of life that include sacred balance. 13 is also thought to be the essence of the empowered and embodied Christed Feminine.

The Power of 13
Some say 13 is a number that transcends matter and is coded with the frequencies of Ascension, Oneness and Unity that transforms all things. Since 13 is a prime number it is only divisible by itself representing purity – thus the number 13 is incorruptible and exists within its own integrity.

Turtle Numbers13 is linked with the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. Many ancient secret societies and mystery schools understood that the number 13 represented death and rebirth through ascension into eternal life and it represented the secret knowledge of all life including sacred sexuality.

It is synchronistic that the 13th card in the Tarot is the Death card. The 13th rune in the Norse alphabet “Eiwaz” is also linked with the balance between light and dark, death and rebirth, the Heavens and the Underworld.

Turtles are considered to represent the ancient wisdom of the Earth, with 13 segments on their shells. Many believe this has to do with what is called the true Lunar Calendar. However, 13 is just one of the sacred numbers for the Moon along with 12, 19, and 29.5. More about the sacred numbers of the Moon HERE.

The Egyptians described 13 steps on the ladder that leads to eternity and the thirteenth step was where the soul reached the source of its self and attained spiritual completion. Interestingly, the word reincarnation has 13 letters.

In the Arthurian Legends Merlin guards the 13 Treasures of Britain. The Sacred Chord of the Druids had 13 segments and that there are 13 Doctrines of the Bards.

The United States and the Number 13

The flag of the United States of America has 13 horizontal stripes 6 white and 7 red and the original flag had 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies.

The U.S. Government Great Seal has 13 stars, 13 arrows, 13 berries, 13 stripes and 13 leaves, as well as two 13 letter phrases. For example: the Latin phrase on the Great Seal e pluribus unum has 13 letters and means “out of the many, one” or “one from many” or “many uniting into one”.

On the back of the Great Seal of the United States it says Annuit Cœptis. This phrase is take from the Latin words annuo meaning “to nod” or “to approve”, and coeptum meaning “commencement, or undertaking”. This phrase is literally translated as, “S/he approves of the undertakings” or “S/he has approved of the undertakings”. S/he refers to the Divine.

Magical 13
Some say 13 is a unifying vibration that activates the solar light body. Said another way it is the 12 around 1. The One is us and each One is integrating the twelve archetypes of the signs that when embodied and expressed through each of us is the 12 around 1 or 12 in the One.

Together the 12 in 1 becomes 13 and then we truly know the experience of Unity within the Diversity. We are the One who the twelve circle. So each One of us is essential to the whole as we make up the 1 in the number 13. After all Christ had 12 disciples so he himself was the 13th.

Over the years, the elite who hold the power of commerce, government, religious and educational institutions, etc. have successfully instilled fear around the number 13. It has been viewed as a most unlucky number when actually it is just the opposite.

Instilling fear of the number 13 was a way to disconnect the masses from this powerful divine source energy. It is time once again, to remember that the vibration of 13 helps us to realign with source energy and our own healing.


More on The Gregorian Calendar

The creation of the Gregorian calendar created a calendric system so precise in tracking the solar year it takes about 3,323 years for the calendar to drift off from the solar cycle one whole day. Wow…especially if you consider that the calendars we know of prior to this time drifted significantly over a much shorter time. In fact, Julius Caesar, had a calendar created and named after him, that reset the calendar by 10 days, because that is how far the calendric dates had drifted from the seasons.

Caesar’s calendar also began to drift. The Gregorian Calendar was created to solve this issue of the dates drifting away from the seasons they were created to represent. The Gregorian Calendar features a series of numbers, or dates, tracked by days, weeks and months. This calendar has become the global standard for determining what time it is.

The challenge is this calendar has also fixated humanity’s awareness to linear time and disconnected our awareness from cyclical time, time outside of time, multi-dimensional time and non-time. These are all forms of magical time that are not as available to us as they once were before our awareness was fixated on linear time.

Even so, the Gregorian Calendar does have a certain number magic connected to it that can create numeric portals that draw attention and our awareness to them. Over the last few years we have had dates like 11/11/11 or 12/12/12.  In 2014 we had the date 12/13/14. I myself love that I was born on 3/4/56.

So this brings us back to the Gregorian Calendar date of Friday the 13th, a date that was originally considered a fortunate time for honoring the Goddess on her special day. This practice was later vigorously discouraged by religious and political leaders who proclaimed both Friday and the number 13 together to be extremely unlucky. Discounting the traditions that still consider the number 13 as the number that bonds the 12 into one, or turns multiplicity into oneness or wholeness.

If you Truly Understand the Number 13

There is also an occult understanding of the number 13 that says if someone truly understands this number they will be empowered through the mysteries of completion. However, if the power of this number is misused it will have a destructive influence, hence the fear that has grown up around the number 13.

However, the number 13 is also thought to represent eternal love, totality, realization, and attainment.

13 has the honor of being the sixth prime number and one of the numbers in the Fibonacci sequence. The number 13 is also connected to the cycles of the Moon and the Earth. For example, the Moon averages about 13 degrees of movement per day. There are 13 weeks between a Solstice and Equinox or an Equinox and a Solstice. There are four seasons each year with 13 weeks in each season. 4 x 13 equals 52 weeks in a year.

The Playing Cards
This brings us to the playing cards (that are actually a calendar) having four suits – representing the four seasons and 13 cards in each suit for a total of 52 cards in the deck. Each card has an archetypal significance and can be read as book of destiny or a “Mystic Test Book”.

All of this suggests that 13 is far more important a number than we have been conditioned to believe.

Comments from the Original Post

  1. HEY!!!!!! HOW DID YOU GUYS KNOW ALL OF THAT!!!???? Spot on for me personally…I’m Janae Fechner and I was born on May 13th,1994 on a Friday,
    On the 113th day of that year
    At 1:13pm and 26 seconds
    I am currently 26.
    I am magical I think and would like to know how to use it.
    Thanks the amount of magic is getting a little too weird and scares me sometimes.😳😁

    • Weird i just came back to this and i had no idea i had read it AND NOW I COME ACROSS THIS COMMENT I FORGOT ABOUT AS WELL

      • I totally get it Janae as I have read articles I read before or even written and been have amazed either barely remembering them or not remembering them at all! Love all the 13 confirmation of your birthday. Plus this month has a Friday the 13th and that only happens once up to three times a year! WOW…and YES you are magical. We are all magical and we can choose to cultivate and live a magical life as explained here

        • Hu Cayelin, the interview you posted is blocked – not a public video.
          Can you share it?
          Thank you and wish you a great 2022!!

          • Thank you Bruno for bringing that to my attention. I updated the link to a video I did on Cultivating Magic. The interview was posted on someone else’s YouTube channel so I couldn’t find it either. Here is the link and may 2022 be filled with MAGIC and wonder for you and all you hold dear.🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼❤️

    • How long did it take you to put all that together 🧐..muchas..jKs…you are what you think you are no one can ever take that….

  2. Love these insights about the number 13 as it has been showing up like crazy. It repeats in minutes on the TV the phone, digital clocks and more. At first I felt afraid and now I feel a beautiful energy of love having been led to you and the insights you share about 13 .. Thank you very much for the valuable information it was useful ❤️

    • I had and still experiencing the same thing😮 I felt little bit wierd but I see many 13th numbers in television programmes, YouTube channels descriptions, book pages, in my watch the seconds and minutes. Sometimes I wakes up in the middle of the night, and when I check the watch it says ….the minute 13…I mean many times😮

  3. I love all the positive vibes and spiritual sacred vibes in the 13.
    Thank you so much for your powerful knowledge.
    Us humans can be so silly, especially when misguided.
    This is a super help to the truth.
    Would launching the beginnings of a small side venture to make extra money be good to start on a date that sums to 13?
    The pieces of the date, that add to 13, are all my favorable numbers, and numbers that I would like to see added to the venture, all there.
    Thank you for your wonderful addition the the truth of the numbers….

    • So glad this was helpful and that you have such a powerful connection to the number 13! There are other things to look at besides the number 13 for launching a side venture but of course you could include that in your decision!!! 🙂

  4. Very interesting read for sure, I have done a lot of my own research into 13 because it presents itself to me everyday. I think it’s always been there but I’ve only really become aware of its presence in the last 3-4 years. I have accepted it as a guiding force in my life and its a subtle but beautiful reminder that there is so much more at play than us humans could ever understand. I have “Tredecim” across my knuckles which is Latin for 13. May everyone that is reading find peace, love and happiness in their lives! God Bless!


  5. I love these insights on the number 13 and how it is helping to shift my view of it as an unlucky number. This is so timely as clearly not only have we been mislead about the number 13 but so many other things that are happening now as well. I appreciate the reminder to question what is really true and not just accept whatever we have been told. In that sense the number 13 is continuing to work its magic. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Thank you for this wonderful article! It is super interesting.

    When I was born I got a wristband like all babies in hospitals in Sweden do, and it was with the number 1313, this freaked me dad out. Like that’s a lot of unluck! I had a sense it could also be a positive sign and drew from the mathematical derivation that two negatives becomes a positive.

    Reading this article make me change the interpretation of it again! Do you have any idea what I could change it into?

    • You are so welcome Fanny! I am imaging you have already changed your interpretation to align with the power of the number 13 that has been so long demonized and feared to something positive.Interestingly, I do feel our belief about something – be it number or something else – does impact our experience so good for you for having already been exploring that. ❤️🙏🏼🙂

  7. I have 5 daughters. No boys. Just my girls and a grand daughter. 3 of my girls were born May, June, and July 13. My other two one was born on 11/27/02 which is 13 without adding the 20 to the beginning of the year and my youngest on Halloween which is 13 reversed. My grand daughter 08/30/20 which is 13 without adding the 20.

      • Hey Cayelin,

        I had such a crazy few events.

        I was involved in an accident recently, this man hit me who was uninsured. Two weeks later I was doing the claim and they asked me for the mans information. I found out he was born on the same date as I was. March the 13th. I was born on a Friday the 13th and it always had a bad connotation. I thought wtf are the chances of that happening?

        In Vegas you bet on a number and here I am getting hit by the a person with the same dob as me! Well later that evening, I went to go look at an apartment as I walked out the door shined a number the “13” in gold. I freaked out, my body turned cold in a way. I felt the # 13 was a person following me. I thought this is too weird.

        The next day I had a conversation with someone about the accident and I said the meaning of 13 has to mean something because I keep seeing everywhere and I looked it up and it says death of old life rebirth of my soul!

        Two weeks later, I found out they went with another applicant & I was like ok and that apartment kept speaking to me. I took a covid test and when I opened up the package it had the date 03/13/2* (whatever year) well I tested positive and today I took a test that will come back negative. I feel lots better.

        I got a call shortly after and it was my roommate saying remember the apartment we really wanted they called back and said the last applicant didn’t follow through. They are asking us if we want it? I couldn’t stop thinking about that apartment! I said yes we will take it!

        Right after that call was my mother saying they offered to pay us out on vehicle that was totaled in that last accident. It’s like life is telling me I’m officially reborn again! I wanted to share this with you and tell you this was an amazing article. I would love to share my story on your platform if you have any feedback or input. I believe this is crazy in a different way!

        • Thank you so much Kay for sharing this story and how you are changing your relationship with the number 13 is so amazing!🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  8. Thank you very much for this amazing information, I really enjoyed reading it.
    The number 13 has always been my lucky number so I found this information most interesting. I’ve always been a numbers person, I often find myself adding and aligning various parts of my life with the number 13.
    Thank you again, sincerely SMR13.

  9. I have always noticed the number of 13, it’s been very significant in my life. My birth date. My grandpappy passing on my birthdate. And one of my favourite artist Tupac. I see this number everywhere, every day. The other day I was listening to a YouTube video about the NFTs and the music business…. It ended. As I reached down to grab my fone the time was exactly 13:13. I then look to my right simultaneously to find myself passing a door with 13a 13b. I then sit in a bar later that night and my opposite table has a wooden spoon labelled 13. Then upon leaving a black cat walks across the road from me right. Noticing these numbers to this degree doesn’t leave me feeling crazy, though thoughts have arisen that it should do. Thank you for this post, felt it was time I look into the significance. Happy to find so much in regards to unification. Kindest regards.

    • Hi Charlotte,
      Thank you for sharing about your experience with 13. You definitely have been having 13 magic getting your attention! It seems the Universe is definitely sending you messages through the number magic of 13!🙏🏼🙂❤️
