Zodiac Signs and the Sacred Worship of Maa Laxmi on Diwali
Diwali is around the corner, and each one of us has a list of our own plans. We all grew up listening to,'Diwali is the festival of lights, colours, and sweets.' Well, we honestly feel that, though this line holds the complete truth, it is one of the most cliched things we’ve ever heard.
Yes, Diwali is all about light, colour, and that brouhaha-but its real essence is to learn how to worship the powerful deities and meditate on their celestial forms.
The deities do have a connection with the stars up there. Don’t you think? Well then, we prove it here!
Lakshmi Puja is an integral part of Diwali celebrations. But here, rather than going the usual way of worshipping the prime form of Maa Lakshmi, we bring you her various forms that are specific to your zodiac signs. The stars in your zodiac connect with the different celestial forms of Maa Lakshmi. And each of her twelve forms mentioned here gives different results!
So check what’s your Rashi and be prepared to worship your beloved Maa Lakshmi in that special form of hers.
Well, before we begin, we have a small note for you to drop. While you spot the specific form of Maa Lakshmi and worship her on the day of Lakshmi puja, don’t forget to worship Shri Ganesh first. After all, nothing auspicious can commence before the worship of Mata Parvati’s beloved son. Once you’re done worshipping Shri Ganesh, you may then proceed to pray, love, and meditate over the form (of Mata Laxmi) that relates to your zodiac sign.
Dear Arian, this Laxmi Puja-paint yourself red! Yes. Mars is your natural ruler, and thus, red is your colour, so you may paint your house walls red. This will attract the right kind of energy to keep you grounded.'
