What better night than Mahashivratri to celebrate oneness with oneself!
Mahashivratri is considered to be of much significance. On this night, the northern hemisphere of the planet is positioned in such a way that there is a natural upsurge of energy in a human being and nature is pushing one towards spiritual peak. It is celebrated according to the planetary system due to the wobble performed by the Earth around the Sun. The gravitational pull of the Moon is maximum on the new Moon and full moon day, resulting in the rise of full body fluid in an upward direction towards the brain. And it is a proven fact that when the brain receives good amount of oxygenated blood, it performs exceedingly well. The planetary positions also affect the human circulatory system.
