The 13th step, which transitions to the afterlife, was seen as a fortunate and transformative step. In essence, the number 13 represented ascension and rebirth.
2. Norse Mythology: While the tale of Loki crashing a banquet as the 13th guest, causing chaos, might sound negative, there are other aspects of Norse traditions where the number 13 was considered powerful and auspicious.
3. Numerology: In numerology, 13 breaks down to 1+3, which equals 4. The number 4 symbolizes stability and a strong foundation. It's about building strong structures and grounding oneself.
