Saturn brings a powerful, somewhat intimidating power to Saturdays. This is another great day for banishing and protection magic, as well as for setting strong boundaries. The energy of Saturn is very orderly and is great when structure is needed.
Light a black candle to symbolize the heat of the hearth. Meditating with a black candle brings spiritual protection as it absorbs hostility, unfriendliness, curses and more. Black candles aren’t evil, they help us stay protected from harm.
Carrying these gemstones today can bring success and fulfillment of your goals. Wear them as a talisman or simply keep them close to you to harness their energy.
Drink a cup of Black Tea to connect with Saturday’s infallible inspiration. Black tea has a higher rate of theine than other teas, so it is a powerful stimulant. Its rich aroma promotes an awakening of the senses and its fluorine contents can help prevent cavities! ¹.
The angel Cassael governs this day. Cassael’s name means ‘speed of God’ in Hebrew. This angel is symbolic of solitude, control, balance, reflection and sensibility. Interestingly the ruling planet over this day is Saturn, which has similar symbolic qualities as Cassael. The symbolic meaning of Saturn and Cassael deals with concepts such as: Time, Stability, Hard Work, Authority and Being methodical. As a result of both angel and planet connection, Saturday often has a controlling feel to it, or comes along with a sense of obligation. It is commonly a day of catching up on work we’ve put off, because that is the ‘sensible’ thing to do. This day often casts a sensation of establishing balance and order back into our lives.
