Honoring or worshipping Lord Shiva on Mondays is extremely powerful and if you practice it with sincerity and devotion, it can bring about a state of inner peace and calm, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety. It brings both material and spiritual prosperity.

Why Do We Worship Lord Shiva on Mondays?

In the context of astrology and its relationship with days of the week, each day is ruled by a particular planet or deity. Monday, ruled by the Moon, is associated with emotions, intuition, and the subconscious mind.

Worshiping Lord Shiva, especially on Mondays, is believed to be particularly effective for soothing the mind and strengthening the Moon’s positive influence on your horoscope. In Vedic astrology, a strong Moon in the horoscope is said to bring peace of mind, emotional stability, and harmony.

Furthermore, Lord Shiva’s association with time and his title “Maha Kaal” (The Great Time) signifies his dominion over time and the cosmic cycle. He is considered the Guru of Lord Shani (Planet Saturn), which in astrology is known for imparting lessons of discipline, hard work, and endurance. Worshiping Shiva can be seen as a way to mitigate the malefic effects of Saturn.
