The origin of the number 13 being unlucky: 13 people at the Last Supper (one of them, Judas betrayed Jesus, and led to the Crucifixion): 13 witches in a coven: the 13th card in a Tarot deck is Death: The origin of Friday being unlucky: Jesus traditionally is thought to have been crucified on a Friday; Hangman's Day used to be on a Friday, the day criminals were executed: Vikings never sailed on a Friday, as it was the day of their god Freya, and they did not want to offend her.
For some Friday 13th is lucky: In Japan, Friday the thirteenth is considered to be an exceptionally lucky day. And the number 13 has not always been considered unlucky: there are 13 Buddhas in the Indian Pantheon, 13 mystical discs surmount Chinese and Indian Pagodas. 13 is a sacred number of the Mayans, with 13 snake gods, and 13 days in their week: the ancient Hebrews had 13 lunar months in the year.
Numerologically there is nothing unlucky about the number 13, which is also 1 plus 3 which equals 4. The 4th position in the cycles of time does however represent the "test" or "challenge" period. You are faced with a challenge to a personal weakness which you must overcome.
