  1. Hello there!

    That is an eye-opening article you have there and it is greatly commendable. I haven’t really observed how unlucky fridays can be but this article just activated my mind towards it and i had to start flashing back. I just realized that truly every month that starts with a Sunday will always have a 13th Friday. Will start thinking of such Fridays with a numerology sense so I won’t be prone to being a victim of the bad luck.


    1. Yes Caro! That’s the spirit, see it in a more positive light. Friday the 13th is not all doom and gloom if we rely on numerology! Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by.

  2.  You are a god I dream of a day when I can make music for a living Its probably unrealistic and Ill probably never make it but I want to give it a shot If I end up busking, Ill still probably be happy with it if I get two square meals a day and a place to sleep I just want music to be a part of my life Ive been told I can have a job and still make music But, Ive seen my father Hed make an amazing musician but he literally has no time for music anymore He is off to work by 8:30 in the morning and often gets off work around 9 or 10 at night That isnt something I want

    1. If this is something that you ‘want’ then it’s an ideal time to look at how you could make this happen, under this energy that really is not about ‘bad luck’ or ‘unlucky’ at all. Also, this weekend we have a new Moon, which is an ideal time to work on manifestations. For myself also there are so many other things I’d love to do and love to work on. It’s all about seeing what you can do where, when, and how, = being productive. I wish you luck with your dreams and desires!

  3. Hi to all. Very interesting topic because many people are superstitious and believe in Unlucky number 13. I have a lot of friends who believe in it, however, as far as I am concerned and I speak from my life experience, so far I have not had a problem with bad things happening to me that day, on the contrary a few good things happened to me which I associated with being supposedly number 13 unlucky. So, as far as I’m concerned, for now I have only positive experiences with number 13 🙂
