Monday is ruled by the Moon! The deity for this day is Lord Shiva.
According to Hindu Mythology Lord Shiva is the one who saved the moon from the curse of Daksha!
Nakshatras are the daughters of Daksha and they were married to the Moon! The moon journeys along each nakshatra i.e. 27 and was more attached to the Rohini Nakshatras and spent more time with her! The other nakshatras felt alone isolated and complained to their father about the bias tendencies and cursed the moon.
The Moon requested Lord Shiva, but still, Mahadeva could not completely take away the curse, and he declared that the moon will wax and wane instead of disappearing completely. So, this is the significance of the crescent moon that adorns Lord Shiva!
In mythology, Moon is often considered as “Mind” and has the strong impact on our thoughts, emotions, and feelings! The Moon is the closest to us and other planets are further away from us. So if we have a well placed and strong Moon, we have a balanced mind that can bear any negative planetary influences! Therefore, strengthening Moon is extremely crucial for a peaceful life.
The best way of strengthening our Moon is to worship Lord Shiva, especially on Mondays! Listen to the powerful mantra of Rudram chant to gain the abundance of blessings from Lord Shiva! Lord Shiva is also considered as the Guru of Lord Shani ( Saturn )! He also presides over time and also called as – Maha Kaal. So worshipping Lord Shiva can help us to get rid of planetary influences from Saturn.
