An intention candle dedicated to Saturn, father of time, master builder, lord of Winter, reaper of all that is sown. Created to be burned during intention setting, Saturn devotions, ritual work, or as an altar candle. It can also be used as a candle to honor Saturn (Kronos) for devotional or remediation work, during heavy Saturn transits, and to honor Capricorn or Aquarius. The meaning behind the Saturn candle is to bring focus and attention to working with our own integrity, perseverance, truth, mindfulness, and for supporting structure in our lives. In astrology, Saturn is the father of time. Saturn wakes us up to reality and asks us to discern what it is we need to do to leave our mark on the world. It shows us that our time here on Earth is finite which in turn teaches us not to squander what days we are given. It teaches us that all things born will eventually die and be given back to the Earth which it came from. And that with death comes new life and the cycle begins again. Virtues of Saturn are responsibility, maturity, diligence, honesty, stability, structure, and fortitude. We are rewarded with strength, wealth, legacy, and stability if we show up for ourselves in our inner and outer worlds and put in the hard work that is demanded of us. Saturn rules the zodiacal signs of Capricorn and Aquarius. Together, these two signs represent how we must honor tradition, learn the rules of that which we are working with, and master the work if we are to successfully break the mold and begin to innovate something for ourselves and humanity.
It’s important to note that Saturn does have a nature that is cold, dry, discerning, harsh, and restricting. Sometimes this can be very difficult and depressing. Per Astatula Candle Co, they feel this candle is a safe way to honor Saturn experiences in our lives by putting them in a constructive, healing, and humbling way. The herbs and minerals used in this candle are known for their rooted, stable, and protective qualities. These are herbs that help reinforce boundaries, are extremely protective, represent sacred knowledge and wisdom, and dispel grief and sadness.
