Makar Sankranti 2022

Makar Sankranti is a very auspicious day in Hindu mythology. Also known by the names Makara Sankranti, Makarasankranti and Makar Sankrant, the festival is of high imortance because of the shifting of the Sun (Surya) into ‘Makara rashi’ – the zodiac sign which relates to Capricorn. When sun goes from one sun sign and enters another, it is known by the name of ‘Sankranti.’ The word "Sankranti" in Sanskrit means ‘to cross into’. Thus, Makar Sankranti is the day when sun enters into the Makar rashi or the Capricorn sign.
