August is Upon Us!

These cards look a little scary at first glance, and they can be!

August is an 8 month, and we are in a 5 year. 8 + 5 = 13. For centuries people have hailed 13 as a number of bad luck. I am not sure who decided that Death would be the thirteenth card of the Tarot. Did the fear of the number 13 come first, or did the Death card come first? Who knows?
