☀️Karka Sankranti - कर्क संक्रांति

Sankranti Date: Karka Sankranti: Tuesday, 16 July 2024

As per Hindu Panchang, Sankranti (संक्रांति) means movement of the Sun from one Rashi to the next. In some parts of India, each Sankranti is marked as the beginning of a month. On the other hand, in some other parts, a Sankranti is marked as the end of each month and the day following as the beginning of a new month.

Sankranti is favorable for charity, but on this day auspicious ceremonies are avoided. Makar Sankranti marks the beginning of a prosperous phase or the holy phase of transition. All sacred rituals and auspicious ceremonies can be performed after Sankranti.
