Spring Navaratri begins TonightNine Days devoted to Divine Mother...and I am performing daily ceremonies March 16-24, 10:08 a.m.
Navaratri is a very special time of honoring the Divine Mother. Exact translation of the word "Navaratri" is "9 nights". Navaratri happens in Spring and in Fall of every year. It begins on a New Moon. Each of the days honors a certain aspect of Divine Mother and gives a focus to the energy of that day. These are known as the Nava Durga (9 Names of Durga).
Day One:
Sailaputra - Daughter of the Himalayas

Day Two:
Brahmacharini - She Who remains celibate

Day Three:
Chandraghanta - She Who is Beautiful as the Moon

Day Four:
Kusmanda - She Who brings happiness

Day Five:
Skandamata - Mother of Skanda, the leader of armies against evil

Day Six:
Katyayani - Aspect of Mother Kali

Day Seven:
Kalaratri - Kali Night of no Moon

Day Eight:
Mahagauri - The Great White Goddess

Day Nine:
Siddhidatri - She Who is of great spiritual Powers and knowledge

The days are also subdivided into 3 sets of three days:

KALI: The first three days are devoted to Kali, the Goddess of Destruction and Restoration, wife of Shiva; it is a time of purification, a time to let go of all that is not "on purpose" for your life. This is like "cleaning out your closets" to make way for new things.

LAKSHMI: The second three days are devoted to Lakshmi, the Goddess of Prosperity, wife of Vishnu; it is a time of preservation and taking care of things or acquiring what is necessary to make your life full of prosperity and fulfillment. This is like receiving the proper things you need to make your life happy.

SARASWATI: The last three days are devoted to Saraswati, the Goddess of Wisdom, Knowledge and the Arts, wife of Brahma; it is a time of receiving Divine Guidance on how to properly use all resources sent your way. This is like making most efficient and purposeful use of everything you are given.

All three aspects, in balance, are important for a fulfilling and happy life.
