You’ll be happy to know, the Westernized superstition of “unlucky Friday the 13th” is just that, a superstition. Prior to the patriarchal revolution this date was considered to be greatly fortunate, and in some cultures sacred.
In the pagan beliefs of Old Europe, the number 13 was associated with the Great Goddesses and is essentially the most feminine of the numbers – there are 13 lunar cycles annually, and it’s the number of fertility and lunar potency. This is why it’s considered the lucky number of the Great Goddess. In pre-Columbian Mexico, the number 13 signified regeneration and in ancient Egypt it was believed that there were 13 stages of life, the thirteenth being death - the transition to eternal life.
In Jewish religion, the number 13 is a sanctified number being the age at which a Jewish boy is initiated into the Jewish community. It’s also sacred in the Islamic religion. And in the pagan goddess tradition of Old Europe, Wicca, there are 13 members to the coven.
The day of Friday is a significant lucky day as well – in the pagan beliefs, early Mother Creation Goddesses were the muse that resulted in the day being named “Friday”, with many derivatives of this name ranging from “Freya” to “Frig”. Jewish religion celebrates the Sabbath on a Friday, as does Islam.
We encourage all our lottery enthusiasts to reinvent this Friday the 13th and enter the Mega Millions draw – you never know what might happen! Lady Luck may just bestow her graces upon you and award you the second-largest jackpot on offer in Mega Millions history!
