December 21st is the winter solstice: the shortest day and longest night of the year here in Earth’s northern hemisphere. From the scientific point of view, this is when the axis of rotation of the Earth toward the Sun is maximal.
The word “solstice” comes from the Latin words sol sistere, which means “sun standing still.” It’s a yearly astronomical turning point that humans have celebrated for millennia (just think Stonehenge or the ancient Maya).
Since ancient times, cultures all over the world had certain rituals and customs meant specifically to welcome the return of the sun, as the days after the winter solstice will get longer through the rest of the year.
Today is the perfect day for a fresh start! The winter solstice day is suitable for any new beginnings - you can achieve success in your career, radically change your personal life, improve your financial well-being and, most importantly, improve your health and wellness.
