Meanings

1.
to set, to put, to place
(The least common of the "trifecta" of placing (setzen, stellen, legen). For "setzen" there is an element of "being carried", but it's really abstract. By itself, it's for instance used for putting money on a bet. It is NOT used in the sense of "settings".)
2.
to sit down, to take a seat
("sich+Acc setzen" - ONLY for the act of sitting down. The sitting itself is called "sitzen".)
