It’s upon us once again: the festive season. With the start of the Navratri – the Nine Nights of the Divine Feminine. It matters not whether you celebrate it or not, there is a so much ‘singing and dancing’ around this one that you simply cannot ignore it.
What has fascinated me about this festival over the last couple of years is the plethora of information that is available around it. One little trivial detail that has now become larger than life is the colour coordination that accompanies the festival.
After a lot of searching I have now realized that the colour associated with each day is dependent on the ruling Planet of the Goddess worshipped on that day and the day the Festival starts. This year for instance, it starts on Thursday and the colour yellow! And what better a colour for us at Abacus ….. (you guessed it) Yellow!
So here are the prescribed colours for this year and here’s the start of a new series that associates the colours of Navratris with brands.
