The Mystery of 13 – By: Michele Hogan

There are many different systems of numerology. Some place great emphasis on compatible numbers, correlations, single and compound, such as :1 +3


For this article let’s take the number 13 in its compound form to negate some of the unlucky attributes that have been attached to this powerful, number of regeneration. The Late Great Linda Goodman writes in her book “Star Signs” 13 is NOT an unlucky number as people believe. The ancients claimed that “he who understands how to use the number 13 will be given power and dominion.”The symbol of 13 is a skeleton, or death, with a scythe, reaping down men in a field of new grown grass, where young faces and heads appear to be thrusting through the ground and emerging on all sides.” 13 is a number of upheaval, so that new ground may be broken. It’s associated with power, which, if used for a selfish purpose, will bring destruction upon itself. There is a warning of the unknown and unexpected. Adapting to change gracefully will bring out the strength in the 13 vibration, and decrease any potential for negative.

13 is associated with genius—also with explorers breaking the orthodox and new discovery.

Christ was the 13th apostle, King Arthur the 13th of his 12 knights at the round table. It is easy to see how over time, myth built up around the number and it came to be feared. All great Spiritual Leaders typically have 12 followers, Buddha had 12 disciples, the 12 sons of Jacob make 12 tribes of Israel, 12 divisions of Solomon’s temple, the Aztec Quetzalcoatl had 12 disciples, the great Osiris of Egypt had 12 dedicated followers and on & on. As with these leaders and their followers the 13th is usually the Master. In Modern times it is not uncommon t0 have 12 people on a Corporate Board of Directors. The 13th would be  that intangible goal, shareholder, parent company etc. In law, 12 peers sit on a jury while the 13th a Judge presides. Now stop being scared because of silly movies. Embrace 13. Plutonic does.
