Karthigai Somavaram 2020
Mondays are always auspicious for Shiva, and Karthigai Somavaram refers to the five most special Mondays of the year that fall in the month of Karthigai, which is filled with positive energies that help clear karma, rejuvenate your mind and body and enjoy overall prosperity and wellbeing. Shiva’s energy is abundantly available during the Tamil month of Karthigai (mid–November to mid–December). Planet Moon (known as Soma in Sanskrit), who rules Monday, has a special connection with Shiva, who is also known as Someshwara (the one who wears the crescent Moon on his matted hair). According to scriptures, it is during this sacred month Shiva revealed himself in the form of infinite fire.
