Reclaim 13



Are you superstitious? Do you suffer from Triskaidekaphobia? Fear of Friday the 13th. We just reclaimed the number 11, so let us now reclaim 13, take away any negative charge it might have been given by popular culture.


The fear of the number 13 is unfounded internationally as well. It is an honored number in many countries throughout the world. There are 13 occurrences of the quantity 13 in the design of the Great Pyramid of Gizeh in Egypt, the largest stone edifice ever built. In the Indian Pantheon there are 13 Buddhas. The mystical discs that surmount Indian and Chinese pagodas are 13 in number. Enshrined in the Temple of Atsuta in Japan is a sacred sword with 13 objects of mystery forming its hilt. And 13 was the sacred number of the ancient Mexicans – they had 13 snake gods.

The 13th letter of the English alphabet is M, which finds its roots in the 13th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, “mem” (meaning mother), which was the ancient Phoenician word for water. The ancient Egyptian word for water was “moo.” M is the most sacred of all the letters, for it symbolizes water, where all life began. It is the root of the word “mother.” 

The Death Card of the tarot is 13

(Not my writing, see hyperlink)

Death is symbolic of the ending of a major phase or aspect of your life that may bring about the beginning of something far more valuable and important. You must close one door in order to open another. You need to put the past behind you and part ways, ready to embrace new opportunities and possibilities. It may be difficult to let go of the past at times but you will soon see how important it is so that you can bring renewal and transformation into your life. If you resist these necessary endings, you may experience pain, both emotionally and physically but if you exercise your creative imagination and visualize a new possibility, you allow more constructive patterns to emerge.

Similarly, Death indicates a time of significant transformation, change and transition. You need to profoundly transform yourself and clear away any of the old in order to bring in the new. Any change at this time should be welcomed as a positive, cleansing, transformative force in your life. The death and clearing away of limiting factors can open the door to a wider, more satisfying experience of life.

Numerology of 13

(Not my writing, see hyperlink)

Number 13 in numerology is a complex figure. It is seen as unfortunate, but it’s wrong, and this recognition is up in the bias. Number 1 and number 3 are very strong and mean a successful career. On that date, births are practical, good planners, vigorously and systematically implement their plans. They are smart, creative, totally certain beliefs. Independent, proud, quickly settled debts. They are ambitious, very determined, always complete the efforts. The combination of these two numbers are quite astonishing. Now look at the sum of – 4. This number in numerology is a complete contrast to numbers 1 and 3. It is a congenital pessimism, a permanent blue.

These two contradictory trends are extremely unhappy a long position. On the one hand – a huge ambition, desire to succeed, to put forward, but on the other – and the pessimism of his infidelity, the abandonment of the possibilities, no matter how safe they are. Prevent lost opportunities to succeed, but it creates a deep disappointment. 13th date of births is a sharp mind and ability to grasp the whole. These people learn quickly, make it very systematically and methodically. They are quite effective and work done with minimal effort. It would seem that people with such characteristics is always a success, but it is not. Such people are doomed to fail if you do not get yourself in the hands. They are rarely satisfied with what they have and they always want more. It consists of numbers 1 and 3 ambition in numerology.

Just some food for thought.

    Nice post for the number 13 Sindy!

    A small thought popped into my head when I read what you wrote about it connected to the letter M…for mother. Maybe it could have been the time when there was the repression of the female and the rise of the patriarchal society? That’s something to ponder on! Hehehe.
