Dispelling the Myth of 13

The numerology of 13 is fascinating, for 13 is a number of power. It embodies practicality and its focus is on building foundations that are safe, secure, and solid. 13 is strong in tradition, good at organizing, and works extremely hard. 13 knows what it wants and sets goals to get it. It can work well with others or go solo.

October 13

October 13 is a day of practical realism. Expect to see the manifestation of much of your hard work, for many things you’ve endeavored to realize can come into fruition today. While this is true of all days numbered 13, this day has the additional blessing of being in the sign of Libra, which is ruled by Venus, balancing all that occurs with abundant goodness, charm, and grace.

Superstition Behind 13

It’s miserable feeling the deeply embedded dread of what so many say about 13 being bad luck, especially when Friday the 13th comes around. Horror books and films often use the fear it engenders rather effectively. It even has a phobia named after it: triskaidekaphobia, meaning fear of everything related to the number 13.

This fear has its roots in religious beliefs. The 13th guest at the Last Supper was Judas, the apostle who betrayed Jesus. Also, on Friday 13th, 1307, on the order of France’s King Philip the IV, the Knights Templar were arrested, then tortured, and finally killed.

The power of suggestion goes far, wide, and deep, but you have the power here and now to turn bad into good with a simple decision. You can turn negative superstition on its head and transform it into a positive affirmation. Did you know Italians consider the number 13 to be very lucky and fortunate? The Italian expression “fare tredici” translates to “make thirteen” and it means “to hit the jackpot.”

Here’s how to set yourself free from the dark, negative, fearful beliefs about the number 13: Make up your mind that 13 is now your lucky number. Take it further and shine light onto the darkness of any superstition and watch it vanish. Make sure to bless every black cat you see, and merrily dance on every sidewalk crack. Do this joyful transformation with every superstition and it will simply disappear.

It’s your life and you get to decide how you want to live it. Declare a negative superstition is lucky for you, affirm it consistently, and it shall be so.

Other 13 Meanings


In Tarot, the Death card is the 13th card in the Major Arcana. It represents change and transformation in your life. While it can symbolize endings, it rarely means actual death. In fact, it promises rebirth, with changes that ultimately result in something better.

I Ching

In the I Ching, 13 is represented by its #13 hexagram: “Fellowship,” or “Harmony with People.” It means the ability to organize and work together in a productive way with others, especially by releasing mistrust and suspicion and being honest and kind with one another, which brings success.

In the six lines of the 13th hexagram, the top trigram symbolizes Heaven, which is placed over the trigram for Fire. Richard Wilhelm translates this to mean “luminaries in the heavens,” or phrased another way, a fire in the sky.


If you were born on the 13th day of the month, you are a strong-minded person who gets the job done. You are a pragmatist. You like to see things in black and white, minus shades of gray. You are all about building things you can touch. You love to feel secure and are probably a realist. Suspicion, distrust, selfishness, and mean-spiritedness would take you down a dark path, one that could be very destructive. Logic is King to you, but it’s important to remember to have faith, trust in your intuition, and let the beneficent love of your protective angels guide your heart and actions.

Angel Numbers

Angels use numbers to help communicate with you. When 13 seems to pop out at you, it is your angels telling you that positive karmic change is about to occur. The Ascended Masters are at work in your life helping you along your Divine path.

Lucky 13

As you can see, 13 is a very lucky number, one of great good fortune and solid, real, practical blessings. Anywhere you find it in life, rejoice in it and invite all its goodness into your heart, mind, and soul. 13 will help you make your dreams real.
