Saturn

Saturn often gets a bad rap as the “Lord of Karma” or “The Great Malefic. Saturn is only a problem if you’ve been trying to cut corners and shirk your responsibility. It’s a great disciplinarian, which is why some people dread its aspects, but let me ask you this: What loving father doesn’t discipline their child?

Saturn retrogrades and Saturn returns can be a bit tricky, especially when one overlaps the other. Saturn’s orbit is twenty-nine years, so your Saturn returns comes around at twenty-nine, fifty-eight, and, if you’re lucky eighty-seven. If one of those is your age in 2020, then this retrograde applies to you particularly to you! It starts entering it shadow at 25 degrees Capricorn but doesn’t station retrograde until May, at nearly 2 degrees Aquarius. The “old man” stations direct at the end of September but won’t actually leave the retrograde zone until 2021.

The most important days of this retrograde are when it hits anoretic degree of 29 degrees Capricorn the second week in March of this year and the first half of July. Those are likely to be the most rocky days, the day when things just feel out of sorts or don’t seem to be happening. This is particularly important because of Saturn and Pluto are going to be conjunct in Capricorn on and off for most of the year, frequently bumped by Jupiter, and joined by Mars in February and March. Saturn’s pretty happy at home here in Capricorn, but Jupiter doesn’t like the restrictive energy at all. At least Mars likes the sign of the “old goat”!

I’ve waffled on about Saturn a bit because this is an important transit, particularly if it dings one of your natal power points or planets. You may feel limited, particularly when it comes to shouldering to much responsibilities or feeling that others depend on you too much. Take extras time these days and don’t lose your cool with Mars’s energy or Jupiter’s frustrations. Look at the areas of your life that you want to work on and bring into balance, for Saturn’s retrograde will give you a chance to do just that. It’s all about responsibility. Hard work, yes, but it comes with such a high reward!

Uranus

If you want to know why your life has suddenly started to feel like it is full of unexpected changes, look to see what Uranus is doing! When you’re affected by Uranus’s retrograde in Taurus tends to be a bit uncomfortable, for they don’t have much in common. Uranus is impulsive and rebellious, but Taurus is methodical and seeks security. Uranus is going to be in Taurus until 2026, so there’s time to learn to work with, rather than against, the retrogrades as they occur.*

Saturday Is Ruled By Saturn

This day of the week got it’s name from the god of karma and time, Saturn. This day is obviously associated with the planet Saturn and is our last day of the week. Traditionally Saturdays are great days for protection, banishing a negative situation, and generally a good time to clean up any magical messes that you have been ignoring. Some suggestions for Saturday enchantments would include:

◦Wearing the colors of the day, black and deep purple. Here’s your perfect excuse to be dramatic and witchy. Empower these dramatic pieces of your wardrobe for protection and strength.

◦Burning black candles to absorb negativity and burning purple ones to increase your magical wisdom and boost your spirituality

◦Adding a touch of garden witchery to your Saturday spells by working with the pansy (in black or purple of course), the morning glory flowering vine, or the cypress tree.

◦Carrying an obsidian, hematite, or jet tumbled stone in your pocket to reinforce your personal protection and to ward off bad vibes and sour feelings. You can also add these crystals to a candle spell on a Saturday night to really increase the punch of your spellcasting.

◦Cleaning your house and cleansing it while you are at it. Tap into those obstacle-removing vibes and the positive, concluding energies.

◦Closing up the final day of the bewitching week with a bang by calling on Hecate for protection and guidance.

The Witches Correspondences for Saturday, January 13

The Witches Correspondences for Saturday, January 13

Day: Saturday (Saturn’s Day)

Planet: Saturn

Colors: Maroon, Dark Shades, Black

Crystals: Obsidian, Jet, Coral, Hematite, Salt, Lead, Serpentine, Pewter

Aroma: Cypress, Myrrh, Patchouli, Saturn Oil, Black Poppy seeds

Herb: Mullein

Dedicated to the shadowy Anglo-Saxon god Saetere, the equivalent to the Roman Saturn, and the Greek Cronos. It is also associated with the Norns, the Norse equivalent of the Three Fates, and the Trickster-god, Loki. Magical aspects: longevity, exorcism, endings, apprehension, austerity, caution, and limitations.

Not surprisingly, Saturday is ruled by Saturn. The logic and almost sly nature of Saturn is most prominent on Saturday, which is why it is the perfect day for habit breaking and scientific experimentation.

If you have someone that just will not let go of a relationship that you thought was long since dead, give a restriction spell a go next Saturday.

Human manipulation is also a very powerful aspect of Saturn’s power over Saturday.

This is the proper day of the week to perform spells and rituals involving spirit, communication, meditation, psychic attack or defence, locating lost items or missing persons, self-discipline, life, building, doctrine, protection, freedom, elderly, destroying diseases and pests, crystallization, hidden or obscure matters, limitations, and boundaries.

Deities Associated with Saturday – Saturn, Roman God

Deities Associated with Saturday – Saturn, Roman God

Saturn is perhaps best known today for his annual winter festival of debauchery, called the Saturnalia, which falls in December. However, for the ancient Romans, he was an important agricultural deity, holding various associations both with the planting season and with time itself. Similar to the Greek god Cronus, Saturn is credited with giving the gift of agriculture to the Romans.

A temple was erected to Saturn at the base of the Capitoline hill in Rome, where it housed the state treasury.

Not much is known about Saturn in his Roman persona, because there is so much overlap between him and the Greek Cronus. While it is possible the some variant of Saturn was worshiped as early as the pre-Roman Etruscans, it’s difficult for scholars to tell what attributes were originally Roman, and which were Greek.

In general, one thing that academics do agree on is that Saturn’s festival, the Saturnalia, was held each year during the month of December. By contrast, festivals honoring Cronus took place in the summer.

Businesses and court proceedings closed up for the entire Saturnalia celebration, and food and drink were everywhere to be had.

Elaborate feasts and banquets were held, and it wasn’t unusual to exchange small gifts at these parties. A typical Saturnalia gift might be something like a writing tablet or tool, cups and spoons, clothing items, or food. Citizens decked their halls with boughs of greenery, and even hung small tin ornaments on bushes and trees. Bands of naked revelers often roamed the streets, singing and carousing – a sort of naughty precursor to today’s Christmas caroling tradition.

A great statue of Saturn stood in the temple, and interestingly enough, it was filled with oil – likely olive oil, given his status as an agricultural god. In addition, the statue’s feet were wrapped in wool, and the strips were only unbound during the Saturnalia. In addition to merrymaking, street celebrations, and social role reversals, there were sacrifices made to Saturn for a bountiful harvest during the coming year.

Saturday

¸.•*´¨`*•Goddess of the Night Sea ○ Shimmer¸.•*´¨`*•Saturday

The planetary correspondence for Saturday is Saturn. Matters dealing with the public, farming, family ties, legal matters (such as wills and estates), taking care of debts, dealing with lawyers, financing, joint money matters, real estate, older people, banishing or binding negativity, and getting rid of bad habits all fall under the charge of Saturn. It’s easy to see why “Saturday’s child works hard for his living.”

Saturday’s angels are Cassiel, Machatan, Uriel, and Orifiel. Cassiel is the angel of solitudes and tears. He is one of the rulers of the planet Saturn and occasionally appears as the angel of patience. Cassiel links himself to dragon energy. Regarding Machatan, the only information we get is that he works well with Cassiel and is also a power of Saturn. Orifiel is an angel of the wilderness, a ruler of the second hour of the day, and also associated with Saturn.

On Saturday, the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Saturn, and that makes these times of the day doubly blessed. These four hours are the strongest four hours for conducting ritual. Check the local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac to determine your local sunrise.
