SATURDAY: Day of Reckoning

Ruler: Saturn (Capricorn)
Saturn’s Day

Saturday takes its name from the Roman God Saturn. Saturn, however has a clear counterpart in Teutonic Mythology, Ymir. Saturn is an old Titan, who is represented as Chronos in the Greek myths or Father time in more popular mythology. Chronos/Saturn/Ymir was slain by the younger Gods and his body used to make various important things. In the case of Ymir, his flesh made the world, his skull the sky and his bones the mountains, his blood the sea. The Aeflar and Dokaelfar, elves and dwarves, were the maggots that lived in his armpits and the clouds are the remnants of his brains. The stars at night are the cracks put in his skull by the three brothers, Odin, Villi and Ve, who slew him.

It is easy to spot the ruler of this day by its name. In the word Thursday, we see the roots of the name of the Norse god Thor, protector of both gods and humans against the forces of evil. The Norse believed that during a thunderstorm, Thor rode through the heavens on his chariot, thus the verse “Thursday’s child has far to go.”

In Spanish this day of the week is called Jueves and is derived from Jove or Jupiter. Thursday is a Jupiter day. This is a great day for money issues, as Jupiter is the ruling planet of all sorts of financial concerns. Self-improvement, research, and study are also good for this day, as well as travel and social gatherings.

Thursday’s angel is Sachiel. Sachiel sort of surfs the days of the week, and in various texts can be found in the Monday, Thursday, or Friday categories. He presides over the planet Jupiter. Invoke him from the south.

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