We are getting to the end of our daily woman’s practices where each day you learn about certain rituals and practices. Every day has different energies and different planets affecting it in one way or another. If we follow suggested activities for each day we may notice how our life improves day after day.

Saturday is the day of Karma because planet Saturn represents Karma in our life. It is best to avoid entertainment on this day, as well as limit meetings and communication, any sort of activities. It is not going to lead to anything good usually. This day is ideal for all kinds of solitude, fasting, limitations, meditations, contemplation about the meaning of life, making conclusions, finishing projects, getting rid of old things. Generally, it is a very ascetic day.
We need to work on calming down our mind, preferably fasting or having a detoxing diet, and all kinds of cleansing and detoxing procedures. So, if you like saunas, today is the day to schedule them. You can also do a juice cleanse or water fast today. Saturn gives us generously its energy at the time when we are passively having rest (meaning no active kind of rest – hiking, biking, etc.). The more someone has the energy of Saturn, the stronger their spirit is and the easier it is for that person to overcome obstacles and difficulties in life.
So, the best you can on Saturdays is to plan on having rest, staying silent, and recover as much as possible. Saturn is also a day of the Earth, so grounding and being slow today is wonderful as well. Spending time with nature by yourself barefoot would be another perfect thing to do. It is believed that if you have rest on Saturday, it will lengthen your life. Other things you can do (and also in nature) are yoga, meditation, praying, and healing.
It is best to avoid starting any new projects or getting too tired. Today is just not the day. And ironically, getting married today is not good either although many people do exactly that. Perhaps that explains the number of divorces in the world?..
Saturday would be a perfect day for any sort of self-discipline, renunciation, spirituality, and humility. It is a highly spiritual day in general. Working on growing your piety is also great. Serving and honoring your ancestors by performing rituals is also good to do on Saturdays. And of course, honoring and remembering your elders and just anyone who is older than you, showing them respect would be perfect today too.
Saturday Feminine Practices
The thing about Saturday is that if you are a very spiritual woman, you will feel light and easy on that day. For the rest of the people usually, this is a hard day where things fall apart. So, remembering that can help you understand where you are at in life.
Saturday is all about Karma. And we got used to it as one of the weekend days, so we want to squeeze in as many activities as possible. We rush and rush, but nothing good will come out of this. If you go on a trip with your family, the weather can get bad or nothing will work out. Or, if you shop for some clothes today, there is a big chance you won’t want to wear them much.
So, Saturday can show us our life mission. Each one of us has it, every one of us has a special place in the grand scheme of the cosmic plan. And by practicing mindfulness on this day we can get connected to this and see our life mission, as we get in touch with the vision of our Spirit and Soul.
And because of that, on Saturday it would be great work on growing your mindfulness. You can do that by creating a habit out of it. To help yourself create a habit of mindfulness, it is good to dedicate one part of the day when you can practice it fully and wholly, comparing to other days of the week. Find ten to twenty minutes to do that. Of course, you can do it on any others days, it would help you anyway. Just pick a time when you can fully dedicate yourself to it. And strictly make yourself do it routinely at that time. So, no matter what, you will do it.
Find a good place to do it. It has to be a place where no one will disturb you. You can sit on the floor or chair, as long as you are comfortable. Sit straight without leaning forward. Imagine as if the top of your head was connected to a string and someone was pulling it from above. That would make your spine more straight too. Now, take three deep breathes. Try to relax. If you have any thoughts in your mind, just let them come and go. Relax more and more. Do not fight or try to avoid your thoughts. Just let them be.
Now, just spend a few minutes on just this – being. Spend time on arriving at the place where you are at – sitting, with your back straight. Arrive (t)here. Relax and breathe, following your breath. Inhale through your nose, exhale through your mouth. Listen to your sound and feel how the air is coming in and out of your body. Listen to your heartbeat, feel your body, listen to the sounds around you. Be there and nowhere else. And let everything be the way it is. Observe. Be the witness.
It will take you about ten minutes. After you are finished, slowly open your eyes. Now, go do it right now, after you just learned it, and you’ll start seeing the results after a few days.
Additionally, today is great for all kinds of cleansing practices. And like I mentioned before, avoid starting anything new except studying something. If you want to work with planet Saturn and receive its blessings, it is great to bury some coins in the ground with the intention of cleansing and liberation.
Feeding crows and black dogs are also good Saturday practices. And if you are chanting mantras, the mantra “Om Namah Shivaya” is the one for today, as well as the Saturn mantra “Om Sham Shanye Namah”.
Avoid wearing any jewelry today if possible.
