Merry Yule – Happy Winter Solstice!

2014/12/21

The winter solstice marks the first day of astronomical winter. The New Moon is in Capricorn and heralds a time of cleansing transformation. The wheel of the seasons continue to turn and change from darkness to light awaits us.

Northern Hemisphere – (North America, Central America, Europe, Asia, northern Africa)

December solstice 2014: December 21, at 23:03 UTC.
December solstice 2015: December 22, at 04:48 UTC.

December solstice 2016 arrives on December 21 at 10:44 UTC.

Solstices are opposite on either side of the equator, so the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere is the summer solstice in the southern hemisphere and vice versa.
