The Vedas describe the Sun as the primordial cause of the whole universe. The word Aditya is coined from the term Aditi, mother of Adityas. The Bhagavata Purana lists 12 Adityas as twelve Sun gods. So, there are 12 for each of the lunar months of the Tamil calendar. And in each year, it’s a different sun that shines. The names of the 12 Adityas are Aryaman, Mitra, Varuna, Indra, Vivasvan, Tvashtha, Vishnu, Anshuman, Bhaga, Pusha, Parjanja, Dhata. And the months they rule respectively are from mid April-mid May to mid March-mid April taking the lunar months into consideration.
Makar Sankranti is the day when the Sun transits zodiac Capricorn thereby marking the onset of spring season. This has great significance and holds a religious fervour. Makara Sankranti also marks the end of winter solstice and it’s a time when the sun transits from Tropic of Cancer to Tropic of Capricorn i.e. from Dakshinayana to Uttarayana, thereby signifying the onset of harvest season.
