For centuries, Friday the 13th has been surrounded with superstitions of misfortune and downright unluckiness. Very few are aware that before patriarchal times, this day was believed to be the day of the Goddess and a day to worship the Divine Feminine within us all. For many, it is a day to honor the cycles of creation – death and rebirth. This is a powerful day to manifest by honoring your creativity and celebrating beauty, wisdom, and nourishment of the soul. The number 13 holds sacredly potent feminine energy. Curiously enough, there are 13 moon cycles every year and the average woman experiences 13 menstrual cycles per year. We truly are magic. But whether you believe in the former, the latter, or both somehow altogether, there are ways to honor the Goddess and protect yourself at the same time. Here are 6 crystals for Friday the 13th.
