Makar Sankranti - Astrology and Traditions

Makar Sankranta is a festival celebrated in India. From this day, the winter chill begins to decrease and the days starts becoming longer.

Makar Santranta has Astrological Significance. Now lets see what exactly Makar Sankranta means.
Makar means Capricorn. Sankranta means entry of the sun. So, Makar Sankranta means the entry of the Sun in Makar Rashi. Actually, there is sankranta in every month, when the sun enter a new Rashi. But Makar Sankranta has a special significance. On this day, the sun stops it downward journey and starts upwards journey towards the tropic of cancer. This is a harvest period.

There is one more story story associated with Makar Sankranta. Makar Rashi is owned by Saturn (or Shani). Shani is the son or Sun. Sun and Saturn do not get along well. But on this day, father Sun makes it a point to visit his son. So, this marks family gettogethers in many parts of India.

Makar Sankranta and 14 Jan Link - 
Most of the Indian festivals are based on Moon Calendar. But Makar Sankranta is related to movement of Sun - hence based on Solar calendar. We follow the solar calendar in day to day life. Hence, the other moon-based Indian festivals tend to be on different dates of Gregorian calendar, Makar Sankranta is always on 14 January. In leap year, Makar Sankranta can shift by one day to 15 January.

In Maharashtra, Makar Sankranta is seen as a time for bonding with family and friends. Til-Gul is distributed accompanied by saying 'Til gul ghya. god god bola' - meaning accept sweets (til gul) from me and let friendship prevail between us. Women wear black clothes. Small children and new brides wear ornaments made of halva.
