Welcome to the ides of March! Of course the “ides of March” became famous as the day on which Julius Caesar was met his end because he failed to heed the warning “Beware the ides of March”. By the solar calendar, the ides (meaning “middle”) of the month is significant because that is when the Sun changes signs. On this day, 15 March 2010, the Sun enters Pisces. The Sanskrit term is sankranti, which also means “revolution” in the sense of drastic change. So on this day 15 Mar 2010 the Sun leaves the fixed air sign of Aquarius and enters the mutable water of Pisces or Meena, and hence is called Meena Sankranti.
