Hi,

Please see this link

Sashti: Sashti is the sixth phase of moon. This is an auspicious day for lord Muruga. According to the legend, Lord Muruga slayed the demon Soorapadman on sashti and every sashti is devoted to Lord karthikeya. This vratham is observed by all devotees of Lord karthikeya. This vratham is observed to get progeny.

To observe this vratham you should be on no-salt vegetarian diet on this day.

Devotees of Lord Subramanya observe weekly and monthly days in His honour. Every Friday, or the Kartigai Nakshatram day every month, or the sixth day of the bright fortnight,-all these are sacred days for His devotees. The sixth day of the month of Tulam (October-November) is the most auspicious of them all. This is the Skanda Sashti day. In many places the festival commences six days prior to the Sashti itself and concludes on the day of the Sashti. During these days, devotees recite various inspiring hymns and read stories connected with Lord Subramanya. They worship the Lord and take Kavadi (see below). They go on pilgrimage to the various Subramanya shrines. The famous Nakkerar has composed the Tirumurukatrupadai in His praise. He who studies this famous work daily with devotion and faith, gets certain success in life as well as peace and prosperity. The Tiruppugal is another well-known book in Tamil, which contains the inspiring devotional songs of Arunagirinathar in praise of Lord Subramanya. The Kavadichindu songs are also in praise of the Lord. The Skanda Sashti Kavacham is another famous hymn in praise of Lord Subramanya and is sung particularly on festive occasions.

Hi, He also explained about the Shasti Viratham. It is only required to be observed during the growing phase of the moon - i.e. before Powrnami. Generally Viratham or fasting means (oath of) abstaining. This includes (apart from foods), smoking, anger, use of unpleasant words etc.. Anything that may cause one to lose patience or instigate desires should be avoided. As for me, I fast whenever I feel like, which may not be possible for most people who have regular jobs, etc. So, it is best to pick a suitable day (not necessarily a Shasti or Amavaasyai).

Shasti Viratham refers to the fast, 'thithi' refers to the Lunar phase.
