Sankranti – The Power of Transition and Reflection

In the mystical realm of Vedic astrology, every Sankranti holds profound significance. As the Sun makes its passage into Leo, a few hours before and after this moment are considered unsettled for the Sun. Hence, our ancient seers advised against undertaking auspicious beginnings during this time. Instead, they encouraged introspection, allowing us to reflect on the previous month’s journey. Embrace the opportunity to ponder the challenges faced, the lessons learned, and the moments of growth and wisdom gained. This period is ideal for preparing and planning for the upcoming month, setting intentions for a prosperous and fulfilling future.

Sun in Leo – Rituals and Remedies 

  1. Indra Aditya Mantra: As the Sun enters Leo, the awakened form of the Sun God is known as “Indra Aditya.” Honor this divine aspect by reciting the mantra “Aum Ghrini Indra Aditya.” Seek blessings for strength, vitality, and transformation through the radiant energy of this celestial being.
  2. Worship of Lord Sri Krishna: The auspicious month of Leo holds a special connection with Lord Sri Krishna, whose natal chart boasts the Sun in Leo. Embrace this time to worship Lord Krishna and seek protection and guidance from His divine grace. As Janma Ashtami, Lord Krishna’s birth celebration, falls within this month, the devotion becomes even more profound.
  3. Vaidyanatha Jyotirlinga and Lord Shiva: The powerful Jyotirlinga associated with Leo is Vaidyanatha. Pay homage to Lord Shiva, the Pratyadi Devata (presiding deity), by chanting the healing mantra “Aum Namah Shivaya Namo Vaidyanathaya.” Seek blessings for health, recovery, and spiritual well-being.
  4. Honoring Lord Ganesha as Lambodara: Leo, being the natural 5th house of mantras, offers an auspicious time for Mantra Japa. Invoke Lord Ganesha in His form as “Lambodara” and chant the mantra “Aum Lambodaraya Namah” to harness His auspicious energies.

The Power of the Lamp: Sun and Leo’s Connection

In Vedic astrology, the Sun rules Leo, the natural 5th house of mantras. Hence, before commencing any mantra chanting, it is customary to light a lamp, symbolizing the divine light that illuminates our path and dispels darkness from our lives.
