ALMANAC – Saturday

On Saturday we evaluate our personal situation and attend to matters that are holding us back in some way. We may be off from work, but we probably face a list of things that require our attention. Anything that is broken could be fixed or taken to where it can be repaired. We can also stock up on the household items of which we are short. Our major problem on Saturday is maintaining our stamina throughout the day. Saturn challenges our limits to the point of exhaustion. This is a great day for outdoor activities requiring strength and endurance. Some people use the Saturday energy for facing the imperfections in their personal character and making the proper amends.

The Two-Minute Task on Saturday reveals that physical world, while useful definitely has a shelf-life. Gather together all your belongings that need repair or list the tasks that need finishing up. Make a bag of clothing to take to the cleaners. Collect another bag of things to give to charity. Move any seasonal items to the attic, basement or garage. Sort out your tools according to their use. Make an appointment to have your car serviced. Change the kitty litter. Rake the leaves in your yard. Take out the trash. Pick up some roadside trash. Send cards to elderly relatives.

Saturday Rulership

Saturday is ruled by Saturn, the ringed planet. Astrologically Saturn rules restriction, preservation, law and aging. Through Saturn we are taught to assume personal responsibility and uphold social obligations.  On Saturdays our personal limitations are confronted and our reliance upon Spirit is tested to the limit.

Those Born on Saturday are Saturn Types

Saturn Types approach life head-on because they view survival as the ultimate challenge. Their personal interactions with physical existence are stabilizing and their practical efforts can shape our ongoing reality. Their early lives usually hold some significant limitation or personal challenge. Seeing things as primarily black or white, these folks have a tendency to become despondent or sullen if they are not treated fairly. Even brute force can be rationalized, even when it is known not to be right. Saturn types do best as they detach themselves from the results of their actions and perform their duties as good works.
