Mountain is golden and miraculously herbed. The city is full of civilization. Home is a seat of sacrificing, fraternal and parental love and sheltering place for guests, hungry,  distressed, etc. Forests represent renunciation. Groves represent sportivity. Ocean represents immortality.
Thus She is prominently present wherever there is an overpowering ness of Royalty, Civility, Hospitality, Sportivity and immortality, affording a happy and wonderful combination of even contrasts.

The Mantra " Jaya Maarkand Maai Jay Maarkand Maai Svaadhina Vallabhe Jaya Maarkand Maai Jaya Maarkand Maai " [ जय मार्कण्डमाई जय मार्कण्डमाई स्वाधीनवल्लभे जय मार्कण्ड माई जय मार्कण्डमाई ।। ] has wonderfully achieved the desired result. Maai devotees must, however, be very careful, not to abuse powers nor to hope any success in illegitimate desires. The Mantra would be successful if the repeaters are faithful and obedient to their husbands. Maai will relieve you speedily of your honest grievance, provided you are humble and righteous.
Another meaning is She by whose devotion a wife regains her husband from overwhelming clouds of misery and distress or from the clutches of some higher powers.
