    Celestially auspicious occasions: Winter Solstice
    The Winter Solstice is as dark as it gets. The sun is now at its nadir, the furthest southern limit of its range, its terminus. (Or so it looks to us on Earth, who are actually the ones moving in relation to the sun.) And there it seems to want to stay for a while.

     

    At the solstice, the sun rises and sets at the identical time for several days before and after. The length of the daylight hours remains the same. The sun is standing absolutely still. It has stopped retreating, and yet hasn't begun to come back.

     

    Solstice, in Latin, means just that — "the sun stands still." It remains motionless, riveted. Pausing, it hovers in pregnant hesitation before it gets back on track again; resting before it begins its annual return trip across the equator into the Northern Hemisphere for its homecoming. Back to us waiting here, hoping. Join Donna and Susun as they discuss the Winter Solstice.
