These correspond to four zodiac signs:

The 3 divisions of consonants can be expanded to 7 divisions linked with 7 stages of consciousness:
Kavarga-cavarga Tavarga - tavarga pavarga --ya -savarga
Elements-Sensations Instruments Action- Individual -Maya Instruments Sensing 5 Verities
 
These are linked with the 6 Months:

Hence the end of the year and prelude to spring are also a story of the birth of consciousness via the 36 consonants. See Web-Site. http://sarbani.com/mantra/mantra_rashi_chakra.htm
