हरे राम कृष्ण
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.

Varnada Lagna (your karma yoga)
हरे राम कृष्ण
Dear K. Lakshman, Namaskar.
Heres answering your query on the topic of Varṇada Lagna.
Varṇa means color, caste or the single syllable of a word or mantra. As a sound syllable it refers to the origin of our creation, namely sound itself of which the first sound was aum. Sound manifests in the Akaśa or ether element, followed by the creation of the Vāyu or air element, which again is followed by the Agni or fire element. At this stage light and therefore also color emanated. This then resulted in the creation of Jala or water which gave sustenance and finally Prthvi or earth which brought about the solid surfaces and therefore also food.

Brahmana Yoga (Chandra yoga’s)
Here is a writeup on the concept of Brahmana Yoga, and its allied yogas. These are compiled from a selection of emails posted at the SJC: Gurukul list.
Email from Julli Morrison:
You keep mentioning the Brahmana yoga (?) which has to do with moon in 8 and saturn in 1st. I’ve looked through B.V. Raman’s 300 Important Combinations and can’t find it. Is there a list on any of the websites which gives these yogas that you use? I’ve had no luck finding them.
Ramblings on Ayanamsa
A topic which brings much doubt and tests the faith of newcomers in Jyotish is the topic of Ayanamsa. Where our western counterparts who use the tropical zodiac aren’t affected by this problem, those who use the sidereal zodiac, or a zodiac based on star positions are cast into a deep dilemma as to which ayanamsa to use. Where western sidereal astrologers are almost forced to take the plunge into learning the intricacies of the ayanamsa and thereby choose the ayanamsa they like the best, vedic astrologers are presented with a peculiar situation where faith tends to be the compelling factor in choosing ayanamsa.
This writeup doesn’t claim to ascertain a correct ayanamsa, but tries to shed light on the many different facets of the ayanamsa, and some possibilities within the same.
