The Tamil month of Aadi (mid-July to mid-August) is an auspicious time to connect with the divine energy of the Goddess. On the 18th day of this month, the divine energy manifests in the form of nature’s precious gift - water. The day is known as Aadi Perukku, a popular festival in the Tamil Nadu state. Perukku is a Tamil word meaning “rising.” Aadi Perukku marks the beginning of monsoon season in the state. It is the time when the dried-up water bodies regain life and parched soil in the fields gets saturated, giving an invitation to the farmers to prepare for the next planting. The energy of the Mother Goddess infuses zest and vigor in the surroundings. Astrologically, it is the day when the Sun transits into the feminine water sign of Cancer, the most nurturing and sensitive sign of the zodiac.
