You have been seeing this on all the news outlets and may have read that this combination of astrological events will not happen again until August of 2049. We have a combination of a full harvest moon, Friday the 13th and in addition the autumnal equinox will begin next week. I think it is important to bring you some additional information so understand this occurrence better and so you can use this event time to your advantage.
People say that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day and even Hollywood has made Friday the 13th out to be scary. However, it’s actually a very powerful day. Friday the 13th was once considered the day of the Goddess. It was considered a day to honor the Divine Feminine and the cycles of creation death and rebirth that live in us all. Friday the 13th was also considered a very powerful day to manifest, honor creativity and to celebrate beauty and wisdom.
Now, let’s talk about the number 13. It holds an extremely potent energy and in numerology it is considered to be the number for death, rebirth, creation, and fertility. This is because we have 13 moon cycles every year and the average female also experiences 13 cycles per year. Interestingly, before patriarchal times, when a woman was in her cycle, she was considered to embody divine and magical powers. She was regarded by all of her wisdom and ability to offer intuitive and psychic messages. When she was ovulating, she was considered to be at the height of her power and she was celebrated for her ability to receive, hold and create life. It was only when society became more patriarchal that women were made to feel shamed when they were in their cycle and they began to ignore their potential to create and hold space for new life.
The opposition to this idea during patriarchal times gave way to stories were created to take power away and to manifest fear. We all have feminine energy so Friday the 13th is not just for women. It’s a powerful day for all of us to honor our own abilities to create and receive energy from the world around us.
A little fun fact, every Friday in general is considered Venus day which is all feminine energy. My sign Taurus is ruled by Venus and I love the energy it has brought into my life. Venus is all about pleasure and she is positioned to bring some to you. We can all use pleasure, can’t we? Most of us that work Monday through Friday, and spend the week looking forward to Friday. We naturally find ourselves unwinding and relaxing in Venus energy on Fridays after a long week of work.
Friday the 13th is the day of the Goddess and is a beautiful day for creating and celebrating life.
This Friday is also the Harvest Moon which represents the feminine and helps us to understand and deal with our emotions and sensitivities. The Moon also governs how we choose to express ourselves, for many of us understanding our Moon sign can often bring more awareness to our life.
Now to top all of this off, September 22 and 23 is the solar Equinox. As the Sun enters Aries toward the end of March, we have the Autumn Equinox. The Equinox is where day and night are of equal length – the energies coming together as one Heaven and Earth, Spirit and Matter. The Autumn Equinox brings our energy inward, in preparation for rest ahead. Which is always interesting since most of us have an upcoming busy holiday season. But rest is such an important factor as we go within for this seasonal time.
This September is a powerful month to tap into your emotional feelings, allowing what doesn’t serve you to fall away, and take the opportunity to create a magical time to begin a new chapter in your life. Honor the women in your life and if you are a man, honor your creative and sensitive side.
This month and especially these days are an opportunity to embrace new beginnings and the beauty in all of us, our Earth and all its inhabitants.
