Makar Sankranti

Many of you might know that Makar Sankranti is dedicated to the Sun. From an astrological point of view this day is celebrated as the day when the Sun transits in Capricorn. In the year 2023, this day will fall on the 15th January. The festival also marks the end of winters and the beginning of the new harvest season. From the day of Makar Sankranti, the Sun begins its northward journey or the Uttarayan journey and hence this festival is also known as Uttarayan, on this day the farmers across the country wish for a good harvest and worship the Sun. According to the scriptures, Dakshinayan depicts the sign of negativity and Uttarayan depicts the positive sign. So, on this day people take a holy dip in a holy river and worship the Sun. It is also believed that the Sun transit in Capricorn or Cancer is considered to be very fruitful.


Shivratri is the day dedicated to Lord Shiva, this day is celebrated on the 14th day of the dark fortnight, also known as Krushnapaksha Chaturdashis. Lord Shiva is the owner of Chaturdashi Tithi. This day has a high significance in astrology. According to astrology, the moon is the benefactor of mind and the effect of the moon is weaker on the auspicious day of Maha Shivratri. Therefore, worshiping Lord Shiva strengthens the moon in the birth chart. Doing this strengthens the mental strength, will power, courage and patience to the worshiper. Amavas is denoted as the day before Maha Shivratri, Amavas symbolizes the Kaliyuga when there is removal of evil from earth. On this day there is a ritual to bathe Lord Shiva in milk, water and honey and then adorned with flowers and Bel Patti, along with other rituals for the day.
