What Is Solstice?

There are two dates a year that Solstice is celebrated, approximately December 22nd for the winter Solstice and approximately June 22nd for Summer Solstice. Stemming from the Old French and Latin origins of the word, solstitium, its meaning is when the sun (sol) stands still (sistere, statum). Summer Solstice occurs when the sun “apparently” stands still at the first point in the ecliptic of the sign of Cancer. The Winter Solstice occurs when the sun appears to stand still at the first point in the ecliptic of the sign of Capricorn.  Suellen Ocean is the author of Gold River. Available here:
