Yet, even though Mother is fierce in this form, Her dark complexion also reveals the depth of Her compassion. All the colours, eventually, merge into black colour.
During this particular Navaratri seventh night of Goddess Kalaratri is going to be really special. Not only it is happening this year with Saptami Moon in Mula nakshatra, but Moon will be also in tight conjuction with Saturn, the tithi lord of this lunar day. It will be potentially the most transformative day of all Navaratri nights. Goddess Kalaratri will assume Her fierce form and will try to push as with full force towards transformation, unrooting outdated beliefs, facing our fears, looking truth in the eyes and going beyond our limitations. A very powerful time for sadhana and letting go of the past.
