How to Align with Planetary Energies; Saturn and Uranus

Continuing with our journey through the solar system, the next two planets I wish to discuss are Saturn and Uranus. The second and third largest of the gas planets in our solar system, the energy of Saturn and Uranus are complete opposites of each other. Tapping into their energy either separately or together, can bring about changes within us that can move the world.



Saturn, the second gas giant of our solar system can be seen as pragmatic. Ice chunks and dust particles in orbit around the planet form the beautiful rings we can see through our telescopes here on earth. The rings can serve as a constant reminder of the gravitational pull and stability this planet controls. We, in turn, can utilize Saturn’s energy to bring about our own stability in our life. Use this energy to bring discipline, control and structure into our lives. Slow and steady wins the race with Saturn’s energy guiding you, but we also must understand that control can also mean things don’t happen right away, but when they’re supposed to.

Crystals associated with Saturn

Apache tear*, hematite, brown jasper, obsidian, salt, black tourmaline.

Saturn is associated with the First or Root Chakra.

*Apache Tear stone is a translucent glob of obsidian stone and more recognized for good luck, but because of its nature, can hold the same association as obsidian.*



With its attention-seeking name (the proper way to pronounce this name in ur-a-nus), the seventh planet in our solar system has been relegated to nothing more than puns, but the energy of this planet is nothing to joke about. Uranus is one of three planets that holds sway not only over us personally, but generational.  It’s thought to influence society as a whole instead of by person. Uranus energy is chaotic, rebellious, even revolutionary. Use the energy of Uranus to delve into un-conventional ideas or inspirations or to find alternative resolutions to a problem.

**A note of caution; because of the intensity of Uranus, it is strongly recommended that those who are inexperienced with using planetary energies, should NOT work with this energy until they are more experienced in handling all planetary energies.**
