Stop screaming-- the opposite is true.
Contrary to superstitions, the number 13 is actually an essential number for life. The Moon (the intimate feminine planet in astrology) has 13 orbits in a year, the average woman menstruates 13 times a year (at the most), and 13 is the number of the Great Goddesses (of past and current cultures).
Friday itself is known as Venus’s day—a moment of relaxation and embracing sexual desires. In numerology, the number 13 is a master number that helps us manifest our desires.
In other words: It’s fine. You’re gonna be fine!

Venus and Pluto link up on the 12th, and while some may say this conjunction can make for extra-intense emotions (when these two planets collide, sparks—the good kind—fly. Expect a deep commitment to form on Friday the 13th…or luck on a first date or a fun romantic interlude with our one and only).
Don’t fear Friday the 13th! It’s actually lucky!
As always, I love to add an easy to prepare meal for my readers to enjoy.
Line your sheet pan(s) with parchment paper, pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
Gather your fresh veggies: wash and toss in olive oil.
Pan 1: Fingerling potatoes, cut length-wise, peeled and chopped parsnip, broccoli, mini-carrots, cook for 20-30 minutes.
Pan 2: Fresh green beans, 4 eggs in shells. I begin this pan about 10 minutes later since cooking time is more difficult to gauge. When the eggs are a soft hard-boiled state, place in a bowl of ice water to stop cooking process.
(If you have veggies in the fridge looking a little past their prime, chop them up and adjust the cooking time.)
If I’m dining alone, I arrange the butter lettuce on a single dinner plate; dining with others, a decorative platter makes a colorful and appetizing display.
Top with: roasted veggies, heirloom tomatoes, olives, smoked or canned (wild-caught) salmon or tuna. I prepare a mustard/mayo/champagne vinegar dressing and drizzle on top. (you’ll notice I took the photo before adding the olives.)
