Sun Transit in Capricorn 2022
Sun is a fiery sign and Capricorn is an earthy sign, so the transit of Sun through the Capricorn sign signifies the blend of hard work with patience. This will be the basic ingredient of everyone’s success in the year 2022. Sun is the source of accomplishments of desires, but Saturn is the task master that supports disciplinary action in any native that is needed to attain success. Sun in this transit will not force his commanding but will strengthen your endurance to increase the capacity of working hard will make you succeed and prosper in life.
On Makar Sankranti, the Sun changes its apparent direction of motion, as it begins its northward journey. Therefore, Makar Sankranti is also known as “Uttarayan”. This change is visible for 6 months. After 6 months, Sun begins its southward journey and moves to the Cancer sign, which is known as Dakshinayan. Hence, the year is divided into two parts that are Uttarayan (the first half) and Dakshinayan (the second half).
Ideally, Makar Sankranti is a harvest festival which has its roots in different cultures and regions all across India.
What makes Makar Sankranti different from any other Hindu festival is that, while most of the Hindu festivals are based on the movement of the moon or as per the Lunar calendar, Makar Sankranti follows the solar movement and thus the Sun based calendar forms the basis of this harvest festival.
Happy Makar Sankranti 2022
On the occasion of Makar Sankranti day, the father (Sun) visits his son (Saturn). Since both Sun and Saturn are inimical, this event signifies the importance of a father-son relationship. It also signifies the love and bond between a father and his son. Even if there some disagreement between the father and son, the father will always be there for his son to support him. This day signifies the endless love of a father towards his children. No matter how far the wrong road you’ve gone, your father will never leave your side and support. He will bring you back to the right path.
This is the reason why Makar Sankranti holds a major significance in the life of yogis, saints, and holy men who choose the path of spirituality.
The tradition of making ‘til laddoos’, sesame sweets (signifying the Saturn) on this day and eating it with ‘Gur’ (jaggery) (signifying the Sun) is a mark of shedding away our ego. The amalgamation of objective and hard work helps the native follow a divine path in life. On this occasion, sesame sweets are also donated to ward off sinful thoughts and to bring our karmic cycle in sync with cosmic energy.
Cultural and Astrological Significance of Makar Sankranti:
In Vedic astrology terms, ‘Uttarayan ‘is considered as ‘the day of Gods’ whereas, Dakshinayan is considered as ‘the night of Gods’. According to Hinduism, the period of Uttarayan is considered auspicious as it is known to be the period of the Devas. Various kinds of auspicious works are carried out during this period.
This fact can be practically implemented through the thought that after this Sankranti day, the daytime gets longer, and the nighttime reduces. This allows more time for work and hence, good work, in a traditional sense of way and therefore it is considered auspicious. There is more time now to work the land for the farmers and thus, the celebration of proper harvest is observed.
Historically, this was the day chosen by Bhisma Pitamah in Mahabharta, the Hindu classic, to leave his mortal body to get salvation. Also, in the Hindu Vedic texts, this day signifies the battle between God Vishnu and ‘Asura’ where Lord Vishnu won the battle. In simple words, this say signifies the victory of good over evil.
