Is there an option or a workaround to prevent Journey Builder from sending emails on a specific days of the week?
For example, I want the Journey to not send emails every week on Saturday.

Send Email Activities in Journey Builder are Triggered Sends, so in theory the following should work:
Each time the email is queued, the Exclusion Script will be evaluated. If it evaluates to true, then the record will be skipped from sending.
Note: if the Exclusion Script field is not available, you will need to open a support case to get this free feature enabled on your account.
If you are using Automation studio or event automation to fire your journey builder, there is no option to specify black out periods.
However, Automation studio and Event automation has a specific feature - Repeat on Weekdays which would suffice your requirement to inject contacts into a journey builder only on working days (Mon- Fri)
If you are using Triggered event to trigger journey builder, suggest you handle it at the trigger side to control the journey builder entry.
