SHIVARATRI is auspicious for everyone. Is thirteenth night and fourteenth day after full moon on Magha or Phalguna month, when the moon is waning. This festival is related to the end of the moon. This is the reason why is called Shivaratri, the night of Shiva, or Mahashivaratri, the great Shiva night.
