On the first Friday the 13th of 2012, I noticed some pretty amazing cases of bad luck. Not that I was looking for them. I became acquainted with them on Saturday the 14th, when I realized that a few bizarre things began happening and the date began to synchronize with paralleled events.

On Friday the 13th, 2012, Europe experienced the blackest of Fridays as 9 countries lost their triple A ratings in the S&P. The agency downgraded the ratings of Cyprus, Italy, Portugal and Spain by two notches. It also lowered Austria, France, Malta, Slovakia and Slovenia by one notch.
This of course will send echoes through the stock market and the United States and other markets will feel the tremor, however we do not know how bad we will feel it. Many people probably don’t care and will see it as something they are not concerned with at the moment.
To say that Friday the 13th, had something to do with the bad luck makes you sound superstitious however October 13th, 1989 saw a black Friday with The US Stock market and looking over headlines from the date one would think that we are in a time loop.
The unluckiest number of them all can actually be traced back to the Knights Templar. Templar History buffs will tell you that on Friday the 13th of October 1307 The Templars were arrested and were the victims of mass torture and execution.
As we watched the European markets fail on January 13th 2012, and our world leaders continue to loot the moneys for their own gain, we can look back at how the Knights Templar and how they founded the concept of banking and created a bond market as a means to control European nobles through war debts.
By the 13th century the Templars had used their looted gold they plundered from the “Crusades” to buy 9,000 castles throughout Europe and ran an empire stretching from Copenhagen to Damascus.
They founded our modern banking techniques and legitimized usury via interest payments. Templars’ bank branches popped up everywhere, backed by their ill-gotten gold. They charged up to 60% interest on loans, launched the concept of trust accounts and introduced a credit card system for Holy Land pilgrims.
They acted as tax collectors and they were tax exempt by Roman authorities, and built the great cathedrals of Europe, having also found instructions regarding secret building techniques alongside the gold they pilfered beneath Solomon’s Temple. The Templars also controlled a huge fleet of ships and their own naval fleet based at the French Atlantic Port of La Rochelle. They were in great favor with the royals of England. They purchased the island of Cyprus from Richard the Lion Hearted, but were later overrun by the Turks.
On Friday October 13, 1307 King Philip IV of France joined forces with Pope Clement V and began rounding up Templars on charges ranging from necromancy to the use of black magic. Friday the 13th would from that day forward carry negative connotations.
The Templars were alleged to be demon worshippers. They worshiped the satanic egregore Baphomet. When they were rounded up and tortured them it is believed that the day was cursed and from there the superstition of the unlucky day.
Even those who ridicule current superstitions about the dates and the number 13 are unconsciously influenced by them. It is the same for the number 9, or 666 or even the year’s date of 2012.
They are charged dates and are continually thought of when the calendar just happens to indicate that these numbers are in play. Like it or not in 2012 there will be 3 Friday the 13ths and each one will be 13 weeks apart. This happens every 28 years or in astrological terms during a Saturn return.
Saturn returns are in essence a metaphor for going full circle and leaning a hard lesson. It is as if there is a reminder of sorts that Saturn can easily, destroy, kill, or harm a person to teach a lesson.
In astrology there are seven planets which have a great deal of influence to our life. These are Saturn, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, the Moon and the Sun. The names of the seven days of the week come from these planets, however amongst all these planets and stars, the real major influences are; Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. Saturn is known as the destroyer and rebuilder. Saturn can manifest in many forms, Lord Shiva (The Hindu Death God), Shabbathai (The Hebrew equivalent of Satan or Shatain) and Satan or Baal both lords of the air and the waters.
According to most astronomers there was a warning that in January of 2012 there was going to be an attack on a military ship, or perhaps a military attack on a commercial liner or fishing boat. The reason for these dire predictions was simply that since the New Year of 2012 Saturn’s Influence has inched closer by the day to align strongly with the group of planets that combine that control the movement of large objects, the sea and maritime issues, accidents and trauma.
Coincidentally On Friday January 13th, 2012 there was a maritime accident. The ship, the Costa Concordia, a 13 story commercial vessel was carrying 3,200 passengers and 1,000 crew members when it ran aground off the coast of Italy near the island of Giglio. The timeline for the crash of the boat was around 21:00 hrs..On Friday January 13th (Military time) and the final announcements from authorities on Sunday January 15th at 13:00 hrs. News authorities were comparing the sinking of the boat to the Titanic disaster. The ill fated Titanic was named after the largest moon of Saturn, Titan and bankrolled by none other than JP Morgan for the White Star Cruise lines.
The Titanic sank on 15th April 1912 killing 1517 people. Soon we will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the great ocean Liner. Until then, if you calculate the time between the sinking of the Titanic and the Costa Concordia you will see that coincidentally it has been 99 years and 9 months between the disasters.
Those who have already calculated the time line and have already pointed out the numbers inverted are 666. There is also the Titanic Experience a historic display in Orlando and the Titanic movie being rereleased this year in 3D. There was also another coincidence that many people have cited as a bad harbinger about the Concordia and how it compared with Titanic.
Before a ship’s maiden voyage, it’s common for a dignitary to “christen” the vessel by breaking a bottle of champagne on the hull for good luck.
The Titanic was never christened. The Concordia was christened during a ceremony when the ship came online, but the champagne bottle never broke. After the tragedy, on Friday the 13th, people wondered whether the lack of a proper christening was a bad omen.
Giglio was the island where the Costa Concordia sank; by some eerie coincidence the name Giglio also has connections to the Titanic. One of the Passengers on board the Titanic was Victor Giglio, he was Benjamin Guggenheim’s Valet. Benjamin Guggenheim was one of the most prominent American victims of the Titanic disaster. The word Giglio is Italian for the Lilly, a flower that is associated with death and funerals. Once again the association with Saturn is prominent here as Saturn is known as the planet of death.
Another prominent passenger who died on the Titanic was John Jacob Astor IV where he wrote a science fiction novel called “A Journey in Other Worlds: A Romance of the Future” where he described the world of 2088, a time when the world would be able to use anti-gravity ships to go to Saturn and Jupiter.
Saturnalian influence on this Costa Concordia disaster coupled with a number 13 in a year like 2012, the year that many people anticipate will be a challenging and a year of changes generates a clear Mobius strip. In fact it is also a remarkable coincidence that in the first few moments of the Roland Emmerich film 2012 there is a torrential downpour in India. You see a man in a cab reading and in the rain a young boy launches a toy ocean liner in the water. It tilts and looks as if it is listing – it bears a remarkable resemblance to the Costa Concordia.

It is a chilling coincidence that we begin a film about 2012 with a boat sinking and we begin the year 2012 with a boat sinking. While there may be some people who see all of these parallels as pure coincidence with no meaning, there needs to be a general understanding that the cosmos speaks to us in the language of symbols and numbers.
It takes a while to begin to understand the language however there are striking synchronicities that can only be discovered if you really look at what the universe is trying to tell you. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of people who have said that the sinking of the Costa Concordia on Friday the 13th is appropriate because of the simultaneous sinking of the European market.
As Italy’s most expensive ocean liner was sinking on the Friday the 13th, so was the Italian credit rating in the market place. Was this a metaphor for what is to come? It most certainly gives you a synching feeling about the New Year.
