We are sending you so much love, today on the magickal Friday the 13th. This day and night of the Goddess is honoured by Priestesses and Witches for its power and magick. We invite you to shed (if you haven't already) the patriarchal spell that was cast on Friday the 13th and spread as a day of bad luck and evil.
This is truly such an auspicious day! Did you know?
Any month’s 13th day will fall on a Friday if the month starts on a Sunday. Friday is the day of Venus (Viernes, Vendredi), the 'Goddess of Love' planet herself! 13 is a potent number of sacred mysteries in both of the dark and light attributes of the Goddess.
Significances of the Number 13:
There are 13 Moon cycles in a year
13 degrees of movement in the moon's passage
The ancient Lunar calendar had 13 months
A traditional coven has 13 members
13 Archetypes of the Goddess
13th Apostle was Mary Magdalene
In the Hebrew faith, age 13 is considered to be an adult
There are 13 cards of each suit in a deck of cards
and 13 Tones in the Mayan calendar
In Priestesses of the Moon, we offer so many calls to creating space and ritual for each of the four main moon phases and this extends of course to different days of honourment and celebration, like today.
The Waning Moon which we are in until the moon is new on the 15th is a time when we are more internally focused and there's an interest toward the mystical, dreamy, powerful, witchy and sensual aspects of our selves. Perfect for this auspicious day!
SIMPLE VENUS LOVE SPELL FOR WANING MOON
Friday the 13th is a particularly good time to cast a spell for love, healing, and prosperity.
You will need:
1 long red/pink ribbon or cord
1 red or pink candle
Be in a quiet place undisturbed (On the Earth if possible):
1. On Friday at the Venus hour (11am or 11pm), call upon the Goddess of Love as Venus, Freja, Aphrodite or any other Goddess you feel resonant with. Light and burn your candle that has been anointed with rose oil. Envision in your mind's eye that which you wish to experience in relation to love or prosperity as you wrap your ribbon or cord around your right index finger.
2. Place your pointer finger (still with ribbon) on your forehead at your 3rd eye (a quarter inch between and above your eyebrows). Concentrate your focus to `see` your desired outcome for 3 minutes.
3. Intuitively ask of yourself and with the support of your chosen Goddess that whatever needs to fall away for this desired outcome to arise, be revealed with ease & grace. Give thanks to the Goddess.
Enjoy the process of the energies of this day! We'd love to hear in the comments how this felt for you and your reflections on Friday the 13th.
