numerology number 13

“It’s a haunted house”, I recall my friends shouting out loud every time I went across the street and looked at that secluded house number 13.

The number 13 has always been considered a bad omen. They also say this number symbolizes death!

Growing up, I never really cared to investigate the truth about the number 13 and why it’s considered unlucky. However, since I started exploring the depths of numerology, my priorities have changed.

I can’t deny the fact that for me, understanding and researching the reality of number 13 has become the most interesting aspect of studying numerology.

In this blog, I will get into the misconceptions about this number, its meaning, the signs from the universe, personality, and much more. 

Common Misconceptions About The Number 13

Around 10% of the U.S. population fears the number 13.

Bad luck, death, and the number 13 have a deep relationship that hails from Norse mythology, Christianity, and even ancient Greek lore.

Let’s get to the core of where it all came from. 

In Norse Mythology 

As per folklore, the 12 gods while having dinner were interrupted by an uninvited 13th god, Loki.

He convinced Hoor (Odin’s blind son) to shoot Balder (Odin’s other son). Balder was killed and thus the number 13th started symbolizing death.

In Christianity

Then comes the infamous last supper of Jesus Christ on Maundy Thursday (one night before his crucifixion). 

The total number of disciples present that night was 13, and Judas, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th guest at the supper and 13th from Jesus’s seat.

In Numerology

The ‘perfect number 12’ has it all. The number 12 denotes completeness in every sense and therefore leaves no space for acceptance of the number 13.

Be it the number of months in a year, the Gods on Olympus, the total number of signs on the zodiac, or just the concept of time, the number 12 always takes center stage. 

And this makes the number 13 unwanted, unnecessary, and most importantly contrasting in nature. 

common misconceptions about the number 13

These are some of the major reasons why the number 13 is considered an inauspicious number. Other than these, fear of the number 13 comes from its anomaly in our everyday lives.

You don’t see a 13 on a clock, or a 13-inch ruler, or even a 13th month. In fact, the failure of the Apollo 13th mission, made NASA rename the mission and get rid of the number 13 from its sequencing.

And not just NASA, but many countries have been removing the number 13 from their houses, streets, floors, and more.

The misconception about the number 13th is that it’s a sign of bad news, a warning of something negative that is happening in your life, or sometimes just death.

But why do I keep calling it a misconception?

You will know once you understand the right meaning of this number. So what do you think? Is the number 13 in numerology the most misrepresented and misunderstood number around?

Let’s find out!

When reduced to a single digit, the number 13 reduces to the number 4 in numerology (1+3=4).

So other than being a combination of the numbers 1 and 3, 13 also includes a strong influence of the number 4. 

In short, number 13 is spiritually well-rounded.
