There’s an interesting article on CNN (see link below). It’s about how Friday the 13th became such a feared thing in Western culture. It also discuss how the tide may be turning thanks to all the talk surrounding the misogyny in the superstition and because Taylor Swift considers 13 to be her lucky number.
I’m not a Swiftie, but I do like many of her songs, and I’m all about celebrating powerful and influential women. I find it fascinating how one woman can help change a centuries old fear back into something lucky and revered. I knew she was a powerful force in the music industry but had no idea how influential she really is. To be fair I only have this single article as my source.
I’ve recently come up against my own internalized misandry so I’m trying to find balance in my words, but I’m happy that the magical and the mystical aspects of the divine feminine are being more openly celebrated and embraced.
One of the places I’ve found where I’m learning about that magic is on this blog: https://comehomewitch.com/the-friday-the-13th-phenomenon/#gsc.tab=0
Check out her take on the same phenomena as the CNN article.
I hope your Friday the 13th is magical and divine. Be well my friends.
