Masik Sankranti 2017 | Monthly Sankranti

Masik Sankranti (Masa Sankranti) is the Transition of Sun from one sign to another sign. In a Gregorian calendar, Masik Sankranti begins with Makar Sankranti (Transition of Sun from Dhanu Rashi to Makara Rashi) and ends with Dhanu Sankranti (Transition of Sun from Vrischika Rashi to Kumbha Rashi).

On Masik Sankranti days, during Sankramana Punyakaalam and Mahapunya Kaalam, Pitru Tharpan rituals are also performed in some places. Punya Snana is also performed on these days.

On these Masik Sankranti days, Makara Sankranti, Mesha Sankranti, Simha Sankranti and Tula Sankranti are the popular ones.
