Vrischika Sankranti 2023: The holy day of Vrischika Sankranti, sometimes spelt Vrischika Sankramanam, honours the passage of the Sun from the Tula Rashi to the Vrischika Rashi. In the Gregorian calendar, this change corresponds to the Sun moving from the Libra to the Scorpio zodiac signs. The eighth position belongs to the Vruschika Rashi in the Indian astrology Rashi system.

This planetary motion of the Sun God renews its energy at a certain period of the year known as Vrischika Sankranti. Beginning with Vrischika Sankranti, the Tamil and Malayalam calendars’ respective “Karthigai Masam” and “Vrischika Masam” seasons officially begin. The Hindu community holds this day in high regard, and the Vrischika Sankranti rites are observed with great dedication and fervour.

Tula Sankranti 2023: Dates, Rituals, Significance, and Wishes


Vrischika Sankranti is a Hindu festival that is observed by devotees with tremendous fervour. They consider the day suitable for a holy bath, charitable deeds, and other pious pursuits. To obtain Lord Vishnu’s blessings, doing an elaborate puja is one of the most important tasks.

I assume you’re curious as to why the holiday is honoured. The start of the Karthigal Masam, a day revered because the sun moved from the sign of Tula (Libra) to Vrischika (Scorpion), begins on Vrischika Sankranti, according to the Tamil calendar.

There are 12 Sankrantis in a year, and each one ushers in a fresh Hindu month, according to the Hindu Solar Calendar. For Hindus, especially those who live in eastern India, Vrischika Sankranti is one of the most fortunate days. In Hindi, the term “san” denotes “a lot,” whereas the word “kranti” suggests “radical change.” Sankranti is therefore believed to usher in a number of positive improvements in our lives.

Scorpions should take care of their parents on Vrishchik Sankranti by touching their feet and providing for them. Keeping a Peepal leaf at work on Mondays and one leaf on the day of the native’s constellation birth provides success and opens up new financial opportunities.

Vrishchika Sankranti Punya Kaal

Many zodiac signs believe the Sun’s transit on the day of Vrischika Sankranti to be lucky. Astrologers claim that as a result of this transformation, those born under the sign of Scorpio would profit in their careers and businesses. On this day, work can be stopped, and respect will rise along with it. In terms of astrology, this transit is extremely favourable. The confidence of those born under the sign of Scorpio rises on this day. A person is treated with more respect in society on the day of Scorpio Sankranti. On this day, one should not make any form of brag. Loss could ensue from doing so. The speech should be nice on the day of Scorpio Sankranti.

The Legend

The mythological concept of Sankranti is that of a deity. A demon by the name of Shankarsura was allegedly killed by Sankranti. Each Sankranti’s age, form, attire, direction, pace, and fruit are specifically addressed in the Panchang. The Punya Kaal should be used for Sankranti activities, including washing, offering Naivedya to Lord Surya, giving Daan or Dakshina, conducting Shraddha rites, and fasting or Parana. Punya Kaal festivities are delayed till the following sunrise if Sankranti falls after sundown. All of the auspicious things should be done during the day.

The night of the Lord is represented by Dakshinayana, while the day of the Lord is represented by Uttarayana, according to the scriptures. The sun is moving towards the south at this time. For this occasion, when the Sun also influences all zodiac signs, people bathe in sacred locations along the Ganga, Godavari, Krishna, and Yamuna rivers and recite mantras.

The Sun is in the Southern Hemisphere during Scorpio Sankranti. As a result, India’s winters have long nights and brief days.

During Vrischika Sankranti, devotees worship the Sun God in a variety of ways. During this time, altruistic endeavours are more fruitful than usual.

In various parts of the nation, the Vrischika Sankranti event is observed under various names. A special meaning is attached to gifts of urad, rice, gold, woollen clothing, blankets, etc.
