The Tamil month of 'Aadi' is on now (starting 17th July). Tomorrow (24th July) will be the 2nd Aadi Friday. This month is considered very auspicious for Devi worship. Just came across this article in another site and thought of sharing it, as it was a copy/pasted internet article.

Astrological Significance of Aadi Fridays


The Tamil month of Aadi marks the movement of the Sun to the Southern direction. This month starts the festival month for the Goddess till the Sun enters Capricorn. The Goddess will be powerful during this time. Aadi Velli is all the Fridays in the Tamil month of Aadi.

During this year’s Aadi month, from July 17 until August 16, the Sun will be in the emotionally sensitive sign of Cancer. The life-affirming presence of the Sun in Cancer makes it the right time to awaken Goddess energy in different forms, especially the manifesting powers of Goddess Parvati. She is deeply connected to the sign of Cancer as the Moon rules Cancer, and Goddess Parvati rules the Moon. This is why rituals celebrating Goddess energy during this time will be very powerful. Any prayer made to the Goddess for career upliftment, good relationship with boss, health and well being will be answered. Friday are linked to feminine energy as Venus (a feminine energy planet) rules Fridays. Each of the Fridays in this year’s month of Aadi have some unique auspicious influences:

On July 17th, the Sun and the Moon will both be in the nurturing sign of Cancer. The presence of both these luminaries together in Cancer which is ruled by the Moon amplifies the Goddess energy of unconditional love.
On July 24th, the Moon will be in Swati, a freedom-loving star of independence, ruled by Rahu, planet of innovation and new ideas. Rahu is governed by the great protector Goddess Durga. So, this day will be full of Goddess energy which is good for having big ambitions.
On July 31st, the Moon will be in Shravana, a star of listening, ruled by the Moon, the planet which can give emotional and mental stability. The Moon’s overlord is Goddess Parvati herself. Pray to Parvati for being blessed with prosperity through following your heart.
On August 7st, the Moon will be in Krittika, a star of truth, ruled by the Sun. This day will activate fiery energy of the Goddess to terminate negativity and burn through illusion.
On August 14st, the Moon will be in Ashlesha, a star of mystical power, in the Zodiac sign of Cancer, and the Moon will be in close proximity with the Sun. The enlightening energy of Goddess Parvati, the overlord of the Moon, increases with this union. Accessing the Goddess energy on this day will help you in accruing support from others and aligning yourself with wisdom to achieve success.

Astrologically in 2015, all the 5 Aadi Fridays are very good to empower your life with Goddess energy.
