is it friday the 13th today?
Yes it is. And there is a true full moon tonight. The last one until 2048 i believe.
whats a true full moon? as opposed to a not so truthful one? lol
The full moons vary in diameter and the one tonight will be 99.914533527205% full or in other words a true full moon.
EDIT: I am sorry I was misinformed, the significance of tonights full moon is that it lands on Friday the 13th. The next full moon on Friday the 13th will be on Friday Aug 13th 2049.
so is it not a true full moon then?
Cool, a full Moon on the 13th (Lunar number, not an evil number) and Midsummer Eve on a Sabbath day on the 21st…
Like I posted on the thread about Sabbath, in the year '14 (7 + 7) there is a double Sabbath…on a Saturday Jewish/Christian Sabbath and Aine’s faerie queen Sabbath as well… preceded by a full Moon 7 days before the beginning of the Solstice Sabbath (which starts Friday)
It might be significant for me. I was born on such a day. I do not consider the 13th unlucky, I consider it related to the 13th apostle, reincarnation, second chances, destiny vs. fate, free will, dissolution and revelation. Lately I’ve put a lot of faith out there. Talking about how when you pray, pray as if it already happened with strong faith. Pray as if you were heard. Instead of requesting things, for instance:
I am blessed to be experiencing the miracle of existence. I am strong despite all these trials and tribulations. Keep the angels at your side, and God within. God is the infinite and undefeatable, he made us in his image so that we could be masters of our own karma and truth. The revelations section of the bible is a later piece which was a dialogue and commentary on the politics of church and state corruption. Most are analogies and superstitions. I like the book of mary…

According to famous Sakhi (Evidence) or story of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, when he was an accountant at a town of Sultanpur Lodhi, he was distributing grocery to people and when he gave groceries to the 13th person he stopped there because in Gurmukhi and Hindi the word 13 is called Terah, which means yours.

The number 13 had been considered sinister and wicked in ancient Iranian civilization and Zoroastrianism. Since beginning of the Nourooz tradition, the 13th day of each new Iranian year is called Sizdah Be-dar, and this tradition is still alive among Iranian people both within modern Iran and abroad. Since Sizdah Be-dar is the 13th day of the year, it is considered a day when evil’s power might cause difficulties for people. Therefore people leave urban areas for one day and camp in the countryside. Even in the current post-1979 Revolution era, and despite the wishes of Islamic government, this tradition continues to be practiced by the majority of the population throughout Iran.
