This fast has taken the form of fashion
Even though there is a traditional worship, this fast has taken the form of fashion. On this day, women stay hungry and thirsty make up sixteen and offer prayers to the moon after worshiping Ganesha and Karva.
On the day of fasting, wake up in Brahma Muhurta and bathe and wear clean clothes. On this occasion, worshiping Karva is worshiped and worshiping Shiva-Parvati with her, because Goddess Parvati had achieved a lot of good luck by achieving hard penance and hence Shiv-Parvati is worshiped. The worship of the moon on the day of Karva Chauth has both religious and astrological significance.
Why are they eligible?
The fast of Karva Chauth is observed on Krishna Chaturthi of Kartik month. The month of Kartik falls in the Hemant season and at this time the sky remains clear due to which most of the light of the moon falls on the earth. Chandra represents the mind. The mind of women is more fickle, so to make the mind stable and powerful, it is a tradition to pay for the moon on the day of Karva Chauth.
