It's a day that hasn't come for more than a year. But Friday the 13th still leaves some people feeling a little uneasy.
"We have Friday the 13th about four times during the year, so that's always my busiest days," said psychic medium Julie Baliva.
"Friggatriskaidekaphobia," a scary sounding name that carries an even scarier meaning for many people. Psychic Medium Julie Baliva was booked solid this Friday.
Do you think the number 13 is something to be feared?
"Oh, absolutely not it's such a powerful strong number," Baliva said.
So why does the number 13 have such a bad stigma?
"Number 13 means death," Balvia said.
A fear that brings some people to steer clear of certain flights, avoid living at certain addresses and avoid doing certain things on an otherwise normal Friday.
"It's a rigid thinking pattern that despite checking in with reality, persists," said clinical social worker Kara Juszczak.
Some businesses worldwide report a drop in sales on Friday the 13th because people refuse to buy a house, sell stock or make major business decisions on an "unlucky" day.
"That leads to compulsive behavior that they feel they need to carry out and they can't resist otherwise it causes them anxiety," Juszczak said.
Some say the superstition started with Jesus's thirteenth guest at the Last Supper, Judas, who ended up betraying him.
But what some consider unlucky, others find unique.
"9.13.13 just kinda had a ring to it," said Jesse Amesmith.
Trevor and Jesse; unconventional to the core, combined both their last names to become Mr. and Mrs. Ames... Smith. They even put aside other superstitions like taking pictures before the ceremony.
"Nothing is gonna stop this, everything is going perfectly, we have nothing to fear," said Trevor Amesmith.
"I would say face the reality, confronting it, the challenge is if people want to take the risk and try something different," said Juszczak.
Many psychics say the number 13 can mean a fresh start.
"You might be looking forward to a new job, some big change or transformation in your world," said Baliva.
Julie Baliva says most fears are perpetuated by the energy we give it. So go ahead, open an umbrella in your living room and stare that black cat straight in the eye.
"I like Friday the 13th, I think it's lucky," said Jesse Amesmith.
And if you don't live to tell how you overcame your fear, at least you've left your friends with a great story.
