What Does the Winter Solstice Mean?
You may have heard the term “Winter Solstice” tossed around a lot lately. Well, there is a reason for this! This Friday, December 21st, is the 2018 Winter Solstice. But, what is so special about this day anyway? In this blog, we will be discussing the Winter Solstice, what is means, and how astrology predictions from the Astrology Boutique can be affected.
What is the Winter Solstice
The winter solstice is a time when the Earth’s axis and the direction of the sun’s rays effects the length of the days between the South and North Hemispheres. For instance, during the Winter Solstice, the days are much longer in the Southern Hemisphere and shorter in the Northern Hemisphere.
This changing in the length of the days is directly related to how long each of the hemispheres is receiving daylight from the sun. During the Winter Solstice, the Earth’s Tropic of Capricorn is hit at a 90 degree angle by the sun. But, due to the natural axis of the Earth, one hemisphere is offered much more sunlight than the other.
Longest Night, Shortest Day
The Northern Hemisphere will have a shorter day and a longer night. Due to this change, it will get darker faster, with less daylight. The good news is that though the Northern Hemisphere has one day of a long night, it is just that — one day. After the solstice is over, the days will grow to be longer than they were before the solstice. The only difference between any of the other days of the year is that on Winter Solstice offers more moonlight for the Northern Hemisphere.
Winter Solstice and Spirituality
Winter Solstice can mean many things to different people. For one, many hold that the solar event of the Winter Solstice marks the first official day of winter. However, others believe that the Winter Solstice is actually a magnificently spiritual occurrence in which to celebrate the power of the cosmos. For instance, at Stonehenge, United Kingdom, thousands of people join to chant, sing, and dance during the solar event to worship the pagan holiday, Yule. For those who believe in the power of the cosmos and the majesty of solar events, the Winter Solstice is a magical holiday.
Winter Solstice is about New Beginnings
For those who believe in the spirituality of the Winter Solstice, it is a wonderous time of hope. To many, the solstice marks the beginning of a new solar year. “Hope” is a common word associated with the Winter Solstice.
What makes the Winter Solstice especially incredible is that it allows astrology readings to be even more clearly read than normal. Because the night is longer and the alignment of the Earth and Sun are so precise, psychics are able to interpret the cosmos even more clearly and give more exact predictions. With the help of the cosmos, psychic readings are far more precise.
