This year, the UK Winter Solstice falls on December 21st, one day earlier than last year’s solstice. Every year, the Winter Solstice falls between December 20th and December 23rd, so there can be some deviation between the dates year-on-year. However, the Winter Solstice will always fall between these dates, no earlier or later.
In scientific terms, the Winter Solstice is to point in time at which the Earth’s tilt away from the Sun is at its maximum, yet the elevation of the Sun is at its lowest - this means that the day is as short as it can possibly be, as the window of opportunity to see sunlight is minimised by the location of the planet and the tilt of the axis. The Winter Solstice will occur at the same moment across the world, meaning that for many, the event happens at a different time in the day. For example, it may be at 13:30 in the UK, but at 14:30 in France. In some cases, this can lead to people in different countries experiencing the Winter Solstice on different days. One of the most interesting facts about the Winter Solstice is that it is 1 of only 4 days in the year that is the start of a new season; The Winter Solstice marks the end of autumn and the start of winter; the spring equinox marks the end of winter and the first day of spring; the Summer Solstice marks the first day of summer after the spring; and then the autumn equinox signifies the end of summer and the start of the autumn.
Whilst this is the literal definition of the Winter Solstice in terms of science, there are many more inferred meanings behind the event, particularly in spiritual cultures.
To some, the Winter Solstice is an indicator that the days are about to get longer, darker, and colder, for the next few months, which can often be quite a bleak thing to encounter. However, for others, the solstice actually brings signs of hope and celebration. In many spiritual cultures, it’s not unusual to see the Winter Solstice celebrated, such is the significance of the day to people who believe in a higher level of spirituality.
With the date falling so late in the year, just before Christmas in fact, it is only natural to make the connection between the solstice and the New Year - many people state that they see the Winter Solstice as a time of beginnings, with ancient cultures believing that the date signified the birth of the Sun.
One of the most commonly cited phenomena experienced during the Winter Solstice is that of low energy - with daylight, sun, and heat all at their lowest levels of the year, it’s no surprise to feel that energy in all states feels rather low. However, this does not have to be a negative thing; for many, this provides the perfect time to rest and focus on themselves by disconnecting from the rest of the world and searching to become more one within yourself. You can do this by removing any life-draining technology from your surroundings for a little while - this means no phone, laptop, or television, simply focusing on your own mind and body along with the surroundings that you find yourself within. Without these modern distractions, you’ll find it much easier to zone in on your own consciousness, allowing you to focus more of your own energy into reflecting on your past, and thinking ahead to your goals for the future.
