Q&A: How long is a path cursed after a black cat crosses it?

Question by leothelionator:How long is a fucking road after you cross a black cat? It’s Friday the thirteenth and last night a black cat crossed my path, but I did not see it. Do I have to see it cross that count? If not, then it means that anyone who crosses that point will be cursed until the sidewalk is no longer in use? How long the curse will remain in force? What if you own a black cat, not your apartment all be damned? Best answer:

  1. I’m not superstitious so I don’t know.

    I have a black cat and she trips me all the time and I’m okay so… IDK.

  2. I was born on the 13th of the month, and my birthday periodically falls on a Friday. So I figure Friday the 13th is lucky for me. And so it has proved today: this is the day we go get the U-Haul truck and move me into my cool new apartment.

    Similarly, the black cat does not need to be bad luck, even if you see him/her cross your path. When a black cat looks like it is about to cross my path, I tell it, “Beware. It may be bad luck for you and not for me.” Often they stop and stare at me, and cross its path instead of it crossing mine.

  3. What is a path? If it’s an imaginary line extending in front of you, how long does it extend? If it extends for miles, or thousands of miles, then a black cat has crossed EVERYONES path and does so all the time. See my point? Black cats have black pigment in their hair follicles. I know it’s fun to imagine that there are mystical forces and ‘luck’ and ‘fate’ and stuff like that, but let’s be just a bit practical, shall we? These are myths and legends. They have no application to real life. Nothing ’causes’ bad luck, as luck is just our word for random chance.

  4. As per our Hindu Practice, crossing of your path by any cat including the black one, will bring you bad luck. In my younger age I was just ignoring it as simple superstition. But I had bad effects on three occasions when cat crossed my path.

    1. First time I was caught by police for a traffic violation while driving and fined.

    2. Second time, I got good firing for no fault of mine from my boss.

    3. Third time – I had a massive Heart Attack and hospitalized. I was declared a Heart patient.

    So naturally we have to believe it is not superstition.

    I consulted the astrologers and the precaution we have to take is. IF YOU SEE A CAT CROSS YOUR PATH WHILE WALKING , PLEASE WAIT FOR SOME ONE ELSE TO CROSS. THEY WILL NOT HAVE ANY EFFECT AS THEY WOULD NOT HAVE SEEN THE CAT. IF IT HAPPENS WHILE YOU DRIVE, PLEASE WAIT FOR ANOTHER VEHICLE CROSS FIRST AND THEN YOU CAN GO. I TAKE THIS PRECAUTION NOW-A-DAYS AND I AM ALRIGHT. BEST OF LUCK.-

  5. Superstitiously speaking, you must actually see the cat cross in order to be considered unlucky. It is predominantly the act of “seeing” it that portends ill fate. The “curse” will remain in effect until it is fulfilled.

    I do not see black, white, green or purple cats unlucky.

    “In the USA and parts of Europe which were affected by the witch hunts the association with witches caused them to be considered as bad luck”

    Depending on one’s area of the world and the century one lived in, black cats portend either good or bad luck. Here are some examples.

    Originally in Britain and Europe, a black cat crossing one’s path was considered good luck

    In Asia and the U.K., a black cat is considered lucky.

    In Yorkshire, England, it may be lucky to own a black cat, but it is unlucky have one cross your path.

    To dream of a black cat is lucky.

    On the other paw, seeing a black cat in your dream indicates that you are experiencing some fear in using your psychic abilities and believing in your intuition.

    If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it.

    In regards to Psychology of Superstition, Dr Vyse calls it magical thinking. “Wanting more control or certainty is the driving force behind most superstitions. We tend to look for some kind of a rule, or an explanation for why things happen. “Sometimes the creation of a false certainty is better than no certainty at all, and that is what much of the research suggests,” says Vyse.”

    “..there is a positive placebo effect — if you think something will help you, it may do just that. “There is a tremendous amount of power in belief,” he says. If the outcome is a matter of pure luck, beliefs don’t really have any impact, however, when your performance is a key factor in an outcome, superstitious thinking might give you an extra boost….Studies regularly point to placebo effects (both positive and negative), which are entirely caused by the power of expectations or preconceptions. Yet superstitions can also play a negative role in our lives ”

    If you think it, if you put energy towards something, it will be self-fulfilling.

    Instead of saying “Oh, that’s bad luck!” Trying saying something like, “Oh wow, something good is coming my way and I can’t wait!!!”

    I owned a black cat. She was the most loving, intelligent cat I’ve ever met. Although I’ve yet to own a green or purple cat, I am sure they would be just as remarkable and I would still be blessed – not cursed.
