Unlucky for many, dreaming of the number thirteen suggests that some bad luck has befallen you lately or is about to in your waking hours.
Perhaps you are someone who feels particularly unlucky in love, in work, or in life in general.
The dream might be telling you not to look at the things that have gone wrong in your life, but to focus on those that have gone right. There are positives, you just have to look for them.
Thirteen might also indicate a new phase in your life. You have successfully completed one stage and are about to move onto another.
Perhaps you are finishing in education and have got a new job, maybe you are newly engaged to your partner or it could be that you have achieved a personal best in your physical pursuits.
Whatever it is, the dream is a sign that changes are afoot. Whether they are bad or good, some of it will be out of your control, but the point is to focus on the things you can and give them your all.
Your subconscious could be encouraging you to let go of your superstitions. This attitude may be causing you to look for things that aren’t really there and attribute anything that goes wrong with luck.
If you do believe the number thirteen to be unlucky, it’s possible it represents a more significant fear from your waking life.
Consider what or who else was in the dream with you to additional meaning.
If you can identify what you are afraid of, what can you do to combat this reaction? Perhaps you need to do it anyway, even if it scares you. It’s possible the fear resides in the momentum it carries rather than the act.
You may be wise to fear this person or thing, especially if it poses a threat to you. If you have been partaking in risky activities lately, the dream may be a reminder to you that the thing you fear the most is a consequence if you continue down this path.
As aforementioned, the number thirteen has both positive and negative connotations in dreams.
It can represent both birth and death, the beginning and the end, as well as change.
Perhaps you have something standing in your way that you are struggling to get past. Your dream might be telling you that you need to work hard in order to get to where you want to be in life.
People generally forget numbers when they wake up, so if you remember this number from your dreamscape it shows its importance in your waking life.
Consider what significance the number thirteen has to you- is it a birthday, an anniversary, a death or an address? If you can associate it with one of these things- it might give you greater insight into why you dreamed about this particular number.
In movies the number thirteen is often symbolic of something evil and demonic. Perhaps you are being evil towards someone in your waking hours or maybe someone is acting this way towards you. Evil might be an exaggerated description- the dream could be trying to figure out who your enemies are or if you are a potential enemy to others in your personal or professional life.
If you attribute the number thirteen with age thirteen- this is a very confusing stage of life. It’s possible a situation in your waking life is making you feel confused. Perhaps you think you are going through a chaotic time and you are being indecisive as a consequence.
