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.
Archangel Cassiel is the resonant Angel for Saturdays.
Known by many as the “angel of tears” he oversees the parts of life that we may perceive as limiting – karma, trials, tests and lessons, old age and reincarnation. He is also the guardian of land, property, houses and farming. It’s easy to see why he’s an archangel many would avoid, but if you lack stability in your life, and are willing to commit to long term goals by sacrificing immediate pleasures to get there, then he is your go-to angel.
He is serious and will help you deal with issues of a serious nature – death, missing persons, psychic attack and the eradication of illness, pests and disease. He is also here to assist us as we navigate boundaries and limitations, responsibility and authority, and our human mortality. He is the archangel to invoke when dealing with injustices and enslavement and in moments of deep fear.
Archangel Cassiel is often depicted as an old man or holding an hourglass.
Invoke his presence and he will come to your aid to help carry your burdens and share your woe. But he will also remind you of the necessity of hardship and the great learning that comes from the darkest hour.
Archangel Cassiel resonates with the colors of deep purple and black and with the planet Saturn.
