Times of the year when the Sun reaches its maximum boreal declination (for the summer solstice) and austral declination (for the winter solstice). The days of the two solstices can vary from one year to the next, on June 21st or 22nd for the summer solstice, and on December 21st or 22nd for the winter solstice. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year and the winter solstice is the shortest one in the northern hemisphere, the opposite being true in the southern hemisphere due to the inversion of the seasons.

After offering personalized consultations in my practice for 10 long years, today I write horoscopes and online articles.
