What is the significance of Makara sankranti?

All the rituals that are celebrated are based on energy and that follows a five pattern.

1. Body level—There is physical movement of sun from Winter Solstice to Summer Solstice which is shifting from less energy to more energy.

2. Emotional level—There is emotional change from enjoyment to gratitude. That emotional overflowing of gratitude towards the Sun who is the source of energy to all is celebrated by overflowing the rice froth while making Pongal representing our overflowing emotion of gratitude.

3. Intelligence level—There is change at intelligence in seeing the Truth of life. There are two halves of the planetary positions in the Solar system and which reflects our own selves of looking at the other half of life's reality the dakashinayana to uttranaya.

4. Awareness aspect—Change of Awareness of fortune spending to fortune gaining. This is also based on the same Astrology aspect which reflects Astronomy.So this movement of Sun from Dakshinayana to Uttarayana is a remind to all of us to do Selfless actions to generate Luck energy.

5. Connecting to Consciousness—The change of finite Ego, jeeva atma to infinite Atma, i.e. change from the house of Dhanu to Makara. So, whatever we learn from Guru, it has to be practically implemented which is shown as Shani. So, this aspect is being aware of in this movement of Sun from Dakshinayana to Uttarayana.

To have a life full of fortune, we first have to make ourself fortunate by doing selfless actions being selfless, which leads us to attain the final state of Moksha which is the essence of Indian Vedic system.
