My friend Robert Alvarez, the Modern Mystic, has brought to my attention that today, Friday, July 13th, is the last Friday the 13th of the year. He says in his blog post Friday the Thirteenth :
Today’s Friday the Thirteenth is the third and final one of 2012; the first one was in January, and the second was in April. And I just checked my calendar planner; after today, the next Friday the Thirteenth is not until September, 2013. That is exactly one year and two months from now.
What does this mean?
Well, it can mean absolutely nothing—or—if you like to have a reason to make a day special, why not turn it into a lucky day and do a ritual?
It can be as easy and playful as making a wish on a dandelion . . .
Check out Robert’s blog post for his ceremonious suggestion for the power of the thirteen today!
If you have your own rites or customs, feel free to share!
