On January 14 every year, Hindus celebrate a festival called Makar Sankranti.
The path of the moon is divided into 27 ‘nakshatras’ while the path of the sun is divided into 12 ‘rashis’.
Makar Sankranti also known as Maghe Sankranti is celebrated/observed on the first day of the Month of Magh in the Bikram Calendar, January 14 in the Georgian Calendar as the day on which the sun begins to rise in the Makara Rashi, Sankranti meaning entering. This is the day when Sun begins its North ward journey known as Uttarayan.
Uttarayana is derived from two different Sanskrit words "uttara" (North) and "ayana" (movement) thus indicating a semantic of the northward movement of the Earth on the celestial sphere.
