Libre Calc / Excel - conditional formatting: WEEKDAY()

As you can see in the attachment I created calendar in row 2.
With conditional formatting, I have highlighted all weekends with orange color :
I would like to add now another condition:
whenever there is =OR(WEEKDAY(D2)=1;WEEKDAY(D2)=7) - it stands for: Saturada and Sunday - highlight whole column (or at least 10 rows of that specific column).
You can better see an example on columns: I,J in attached screenshot.
Does anyone know how to do that?

What I have came up for now, is the following condition but this is just static and does not refer to WEEKDAY()

To get the value of the a named cell, you can use INDIRECT - it accepts either A1 syntax, or R#C# syntax

The first is easiest, you can obtain it with ADDRESS(row,col).

So putting those together you can obtain the weekday of the date in the second row like so:
And to match both 1 and 7, your mod 7 should be less than or equals, i.e: MOD(value;7) <= 1

So the final condition would look like:
