5. Seasons

5. Seasons

These are the four quarters of the solar year, namely: Spring, beginning when the Sun enters the constellation of Aries, the Ram, at the time of the Vernal Equinox, March 21st; Summer (the Summer Solstice, June 21st) starting when it enters Cancer, the Crab; Autumn, when it enters Libra, the Balance, at the Autumnal Equinox, September 23rd; Winter (Winter Solstice, December 21st) when it enters Capricornus, the Goat. The difference between these seasons is caused by the varied angles the Earth's surface presents towards the Sun at different times of the year.
