Normally the Sun affects all the zodiac signs, but the entry of the Sun in the Cancer and Capricorn zodiac is very fruitful.

This entry or transition is done at six-six-month intervals. India is located in the Northern Hemisphere.

Before Makar Sankranti, the Sun occurs in the Southern Hemisphere i.e., is relatively far from India.

For this reason, here nights are long and the days are shorter and there is a winter season.

But the Sun begins to come towards the northern hemisphere from the Capricorn. Hence, from day to day, the days of small and day start growing and the summer season starts.
