Saturday & its healing elements
Introduction and important notes to
‘Changing Your Destiny Today and Daily’
Each day of the week makes its unique contribution to the energy vibrations of the universe. The color, the sounds and characteristics of the day’s energies noticeably affect all living things and subtly exert their influence on inert matter as well. From ancient times the 7 days of the week have been named after the influence of celestial bodies and planets that have been thought to influence the overall energies of that particular day and night.
By understanding the unique energy signature that fills the universe each new day, we can work in harmony with those energies. As we do that, we can achieve greater and more consistent levels of achievements.
Think of the day’s energies as a current or tide in the ocean of life. If we move with the tide and ride the various currents and cross currents expertly we can travel greater distances with less effort. If we float along, or oppose and fight the tides and currents of the ocean, we can be pummeled badly, dragged underwater or even be smashed against rocks, or then—we may run aground on sand-banks of life that leave us stranded. If we just float along, then we are being pushed around being driven by those energies in ignorance how we can help ourselves at the very basic fundamental level of everyday life.
Keeping these mental pictures, and accessing knowledge about the influence of the days of the week, we can very usefully make our every day fruitful to progress the aims of our lives.
The start of each day is considered as sunrise and it ends at the next sunrise. The modern convenience of calculating days by a clock from midnight to midnight is not representative of the day’s energy signature.
Using a local area time-zone standard for any place, the following time references may be kept in mind.
At around 4 in the morning or somewhat more precisely, about 45 minutes before local sunrise time, the energies of the new day begin come into great strength. 11 or 12 hours later, between 3 pm and 4:30 p.m. in the afternoon, the energies of the following day begin to appear very gradually, and the energies of the current day slowly begin to decline.
The exception to this last observation is Saturday.
The stabilizing energies of Saturn begin to moderate and decline significantly only after sunset on Saturday. The Sunday energies start gathering strength between 7 and 8 pm on Saturday evening and become very powerfully manifest by 4 am, which, by this consideration, but which, by international standard time calculation would be Sunday after midnight.
Other weekday energies are not as powerful at 4 am as compared to Sunday 4 am. Thus, as the Sunday energies continue to increase even more in strength for the rest of the day, the overall Sunday energy signature is the most powerful one of all the days of the week. We can properly consider Sunday as being the king of the weekdays.
Day 7. Saturday and the healing elements
Saturday marks the end of the week which the work-weary look forward to. Saturday also marks the end of the energy powerful Shabbat that commemorates the traditional ‘seventh day’ on which God rested from the work of Creation. There are some religious traditions that consider Sunday as the 7th day of the weekly order. However, we see that in the natural order of the days of the week energy flows, Saturday is quite properly the 7th day of the week, as Sunday is rightly the first natural day of the week. This was explained earlier in the section about Sunday at the beginning of this book.
Saturday or Saturn’s day is known as a karma-heavy day throughout the world in different ways. Of course for those who have had a celebratory night out on Friday, Saturday is a day of rest, repair and recovery!
The geographic layout and energy of India makes it a karma heavy country in the sense that karmic reaction results here have a multiplier factor added on, in comparison to other countries. Things are greater karmic struggles here because those who are born here or live here are either at a high level of karmic development, or, they need a high level of karmic interaction to heal their destiny. In India, the karmic testing ground is geared for both type of interactions.
This makes our Indian Saturday tradition somewhat fear-based. Where there are difficult events taking place on this day it is not uncommon to hear someone talk—complain really! about having a difficult time due to the pressurizing influence of Saturn.
This makes Saturn one of the most unfairly regarded planetary influences. The beautiful ultramarine lightning energies of Saturn’s day that descend to re-awaken memory and knowledge of one’s spiritual identity are a great blessing.
The additional tinges of brown, white and black in Saturn’s day represent, respectively, the energies of Rahu, Ketu and Saturn.
Brown Rahu energy is the embodiment of the nameless-fear generating energy or shadowy planet known in Western astrological tradition as Dragon’s head. Ketu—the Dragon’s tail, is the shadowy fear inducing and yet karmicly liberating energy, and the black Saturn energies are in the mode of destroying negative residues of karma. Astronomically the Dragon’s head and Tail are the cross-over nodal points of the northern and southern or the ascending and descending nodes where the orbit of the moon crosses the orbit or ecliptic of the sun.
This combination of saturnine energies of Saturday are feared because they tend to detach one from attachment to material things and possessions, either voluntarily or forcefully.
Saturday energy activation methods for benefits
Saturn’s energies can be used beneficially by taking a small quantity—a couple of teaspoons each of black and white sesame seeds, placing them on a piece of brown cloth. The seeds can be rolled up in the cloth and the cloth knotted in a small bundle. The bundle is to be held over the head, over one’s crown chakra— and rotated in horizontal circular movement, 7 times clockwise and 7 times anticlockwise.
Then the bundle can be taken and left under a tree. One may also light sandalwood incense while facing the Southern direction—the direction of the earth element, which is a storehouse of our karmic records. Lightly sprinkling rose-water on oneself and in the home or work environment, or misting the air with it, attracts positive growth energies on Saturday.
An additional measure for long terms positive results can be obtained by planting a tree in the first part of the day, before noon, or after 4:30 pm in a southerly or south-westerly direction. This also generates new positive growth energies at the individual’s root chakra which is the destiny chakra. This measure harmonizes the 5 elements of space, air, fire, water and earth, in the body, the aura and one’s life.
Finally, one may also use the ‘Saturday Box’ method of generating stable savings and wealth on Saturday evenings after 7:30 pm. To learn more about the Saturday Box and how to make one, go to the website ‘www getting-positive-karma-now dot com’, enter the term ‘Saturday box’ in the site search engine and press enter or ‘search’.
All in all, Saturday is a great time for personal advancement in every way, and the stabilizing energies of Saturday can be harnessed to make powerful changes in one’s life.
