The divine Goddess Parvati created the statue of a small boy and given life force into him, and it said that after that, due to the aspect of Saturn on Lord Ganesha, the story is completely changed.
The twist in the story comes with Gajasura who had performed penance for Lord Shiva, because of which Shiva had given boon to Gajasura, to be his most beloved one and live close to with him.
After this, Shiva wanted to meet his wife, Goddess Parvati, and so entered into her room. He was then obstructed to enter by Lord Ganesha, after which a war began in between Shiva and his troop with Ganesha. As a result of the war, Ganesha lost his head as Shiva cut off his head Ganesha with his trident.
Parvati became furious as she saw this and to escape the anger of Parvati, Lord Shiva placed Gajasura’s head with the body of Ganesha.
From that day, the son of Goddess Parvati became Ganesha who signifies intelligence, wisdom and is also worshipped by all the Gods. He is also the first primary deity who is to be worshipped in all occasions before the start of any auspicious work.
A curse was given to Moon when it made fun of the bulky body of Lord Ganesha, and that was the fourth night of the waxing moon.
This signifies that the intellect gets affected by the fourth night of the Moon, so we need some higher consciousness to get rid of the darkness in life due to the lack of wisdom.
Ganesha signifies the planet Mercury, with the right intellect, and the Moon signifies the mind which gets distracted from the right path. So the placement of the Moon and Mercury will be healed through the blessings of Ganesha, in the fourth night of the waxing moon.
