Jacob Boehme Concerning the Planet Saturn

 
Jacob Boehme Concerning the Planet Saturn

Chapter Twenty-Six
Concerning the Planet Saturn

Saturn, the cold, acerbic, and stringent regent, does not take its beginning and origin from the sun.
For in its power it holds the chamber of death and it is a dryer of all forces out of which physicality arises.
Just as the sun is the heart of life and the origin of all spirits in the body of this world, Saturn is an initiator of all physicality and palpability. The entire body of the world abides in the power of these two planets. No creature or formation and no activation can come into being in the natural body of this world outside the power of these two.

Its source, however, is the severe, tart, and stringent fearfulness of the entire body of this world.
For when in the time of the inflammation of anger there was extinguished the light in the outer birth of this world, that is, the birth of the natural realm or palpability or ascending generation of all source spirits, the tart quality stood in its most acerbic and stringent state of giving birth. It contracted the actions of all the source spirits so tartly and tightly together that this gave rise to the earth and stones. This was the true house of death, a constriction of the life in which King Lucifer became imprisoned.

But when on the first day, the light began to break through the word or heart of God in the root of the nature of the body of this world, like a recognition of the day or a start of the activation of life, the stringent and tart birth regained an aspect or glimmering of life in birth. From then on, it abided as if in fearful death until the third day when the love of God pushed through the heaven of the separation to kindle the light of the sun.
But since the heart or power of the sun could not yet unlock and temper the fearful birth or quality of ferocity and wrath in the heights above Jupiter this entire circuit abided in terrible fearfulness, like a woman in labor, 7unable to arouse the heat from the violent cold and tart dryness. 

But since activation also emerged by the power of the concealed heaven, nature could not rest; it was in terror in the pain of labor; and from the spirit of acerbity it gave birth to the tart, cold, and stringent son or star Saturn.
For the spirit of heat was unable to ignite to yield the light and from it, through the water, the love and gentleness. Instead this was a birth of the stringent, cold, and grave ferocity which is a dryer and despoiler and an enemy of gentleness which engenders the hard bones in creatures
