Associated with Saturn, the planet of responsibility, self-discipline, hard work, and perseverance, Saturday is a good day to look at old patterns, life lessons, and long term goals. Magically speaking, this is an ideal day to let go of negative thoughts and influences, banishing illness and addiction, while addressing things such as self-improvement, self-control, endurance, and patience.
Today you can begin the healing process by allowing yourself to look at any fear, resentment, pain, or dark feelings you might have. Feel free to acknowledge the very worst aspects of yourself and your life. Know that you have the power to make the necessary changes and move forward. Take time to reflect, recognizing the positive aspects of your life, embrace how much you've grown as an individual and all the things you've accomplished so far. Take a moment to tap into the magical resources around you to help heal and enhance your life.
