Mahābharata, a work of Śrī Vedavyāsa, is an Ithihasa, or account of former events, on the epic battle which laid the foundation for the current era or Kali Yuga. Dating Mahābharata has been attempted by several scholars in modern times. Attempts have been made using archaeology, historical accounts, and most prominently Jyotish, i.e. astrology and astronomy. The dating of the Mahābharata is an important exercise for astrologers as the event succeeded the births of several celestial incarnations such as the five Pandavas, Śrī Balarāma and most prominently Śrī Kṛṣṇa himself.

Name & rectification
Hello every one,
I have a query. I am very much interested in Jyotish and my name is jyoti. Based on this similarity is it possible to rectify my chart?! I don't know if my DOB is Feb 20 or FEB 21 at 2 am , 1970 ,Tilda (durg,chattisghar india).
ॐ गुरवे नमः
Dear Jyoti, Namaste.
The tenth house is the Indra Bhava and therefore is the strongest house in the entire chart followed by the Prajapati bhava (Lagna). So when a Graha is placed here it can completely eclipse all the other houses. It is the Simhasana (royal/lions throne) of the chart.

Dear Somnath, Namaskar.
What you say is not the case.
The Bhāva Chakra is used in this tradition, but its usage is clearly differentiated from the use of the normal Rāśi or Bhava chakra. Note the difference in wording between Bhava (short a) and Bhāva (long ā). The former refers to the Rāśis and the latter to the houses.

Dear Jitu, Namaskar.
In truth every Sankranti has significance, as does every New and Full Moon, where the significance is derived from the Sun sign wherein the event occurs.
Specifically Makara Sankranti (Sun entering Capricorn) marks the beginning of the Deva-Ayana. In the tropical zodiac it implies increasingly more sunlight on the north pole, whilst in the Sidereal zodiac it is a spiritual light instead where the Deva are blessing. Jyotishas regard this as special significance during this time as God distributes the ability of divine sight (natural tenth house of vision/sight is Makara) to the Jyotishas during this time.
