Some of my observations from around the social media networks. Comments I made, events I shared. Stories with some laughter and some concern. Some news stories that created annoyance with politics or moments of joy with a few good news stories too.

It’s another occurrence of the 13th falling on a Friday. And to Pagan’s that’s a good day!
Fear of Friday the 13th is known as triskaidekaphobes.
While the mainstream Western World runs in fear from Friday the 13th, many pagans should shed those made up connotations and revel in the day as one to be celebrated with joy and excitement. It’s a time to let go of the old that maybe holding you back and welcome in the new. It’s a day to honor the Divine (whatever that is to you) and connect with spirit for progress, and positive transformation. It’s a good day to create new ritual tools, such as carving a new wand, fashioning a new broom or even simply cleaning off your altar and re-organizing your supply closet.
Whither you’re Pagan or not, we would like to send out our wish for you to have a Wondrous and Happy Friday the 13th!
