Saturday is the seventh day of the week. It follows Friday and precedes Sunday. In the Biblical Scriptures Saturday was given the title of day of rest. The Romans named this day after the outermost planet Saturn.
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 SATURDAY TYPE
Individuals born on Saturday 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.
