Some numbers are considered more fortunate than others and what can you do to help lower the wretched effects of these numbers and their significance in your life.
Let us explore them and their symbolism in this guide.
What Numbers Are Considered Bad Luck?
However, numbers consisting of number 4 is often considered bad luck in many cultures particularly South Korea and China.
The number four (四, pinyin) is considered an unlucky number in Chinese due to its similarity to the word “death” (死).
Meanwhile in South Korea, the fear of number four (also known as tetraphobia) is also observed as it sounds like hanja for “death” (사).
As a result, you will find that most public buildings and rooms are not necessarily labeled with the number 4.
In the western culture, the number six, particularly 666, is often associated with the devil.
The belief originates from a story in the Bible where apostle John referred to the number 666 as “the number of the beast” in the Book of Revelation.
The reference to the “beast” is often considered as being the Antichrist and considered a sign of the devil.
In the Chinese culture, however, number 6 is generally considered to be lucky because 六 sounds like 流 (liú), which means “flow”.
In the western culture, the number 13 is generally considered as an unlucky number.
The belief is thought to have come from the Bible where Judas, who betrayed Jesus, is thought to have been the 13th guest to sit down to the Last Supper.
In Norse mythology, the dinner party of the gods was spoiled by the 13th guest named Loki, who caused the world to be plunged into darkness.
What Does It Mean In Your Life?
Does seeing the numbers 4, 6, and 13 more often mean omen? Not necessarily. Avoid having unnecessary worries as these numbers are simply often associated with bad luck, but do not necessarily mean you are cursed.
Seeing 4, 6 (or derivatives of 6, such as 666) may have different significance in your life, depending on whichever stage you are in.
Repetitive appearances of these numbers in your life do not necessarily mean you are bound for misfortune.
Instead, focus on the positive occurrences and anchors in your life.
