Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice, typically occurring on December 21st or 22nd in the Northern Hemisphere, marks not only the shortest day and longest night of the year but also the commencement of Capricorn season and the onset of astronomical winter. This celestial event signifies a pivotal transition both in the cosmos and on Earth. It embodies the qualities of discipline, responsibility, and perseverance that are inherent in Capricorn's nature.
Historically and culturally, the Winter Solstice has held great significance. It's been celebrated as a time of rebirth and renewal as it marks the gradual return of the Sun after a period of darkness. In modern times, the Winter Solstice is still a time of festivities and reflection. It's a moment to pause and appreciate the quiet and stillness of winter, to look inward, and to prepare for the gradual return of longer days. Leading up to and following the Solstice, a span of four days (two days before and two days after), the Earth basks in a significant influx of energy. This period is ripe for transformation and transition. The days surrounding the Solstice brim with a special energy; offering profound opportunities. Opportunities to alter what needs changing, to release what impedes progress, to set intentions for the near future, and to lay the foundations for what's to come. Here are some are lovely ideas for celebrating the Winter Solstice spiritually and mindfully:
Honor the Sun ☀️: Start or end your day by witnessing the sunrise or sunset. This act is a profound way to honor the Sun on the shortest day of the year and reflect on the balance of light and dark. Cleansing 🧹: Organize your living and work spaces, and declutter your mind. Before sunset, let go of unnecessary items to clear out old energies, paving the way for new beginnings. While cleaning, envision this as a process of purifying your entire life. Use salt or essential oils like tea tree, pine, or fir to cleanse floors and surfaces to infuse your environment with freshness and renewal.

Observe the unique beauty of the winter landscape, and use this time to connect with the earth and your inner self. Get Creative 🌲: Engage in crafting homemade natural decorations and gifts. This creative activity is not only a joyful way to celebrate but also a means to connect more deeply with the essence of the season and the natural materials you use.

What is the difference between lunar and daylight hours?
Lunar tips and day characteristics in the app are based on lunar days, which can sometimes differ from calendar days. This is because lunar days are determined by the position of the Moon, and they can change independently of calendar days (daylight hours). So, you can read a horoscope for one lunar day and when you check it later, it may change to the next lunar day. Since sometimes the change of lunar day can happen in the middle of the daylight hours. This is the normal behavior of the app, and it is designed to give you unique and personalized information for each lunar day.
