Summary Intercalary Days The Nobenox ♈ The Nolstice ♋ The Sobenox ♎ The Solstice ♑

The 'Solstice' ♑

A Contraction of 'Southern Solar Stasis'

(The Capricorn♑ Solstice)

The UCC Uses 5 'Intercalary' (off calendar) days to balance the year. These are made up of:

1 'New Years Day' to mark the start of another spiral for earth around The Sun

PLUS

4 'New Season's Days' to mark each of the 4 major earth/solar events;

the 2 solstices and the 2 equinoxes which occur due to the tilt of the earth's axis

These 5 intercalary days when added to the 360 standard calendar days make the 365 Day Year

The UCC Year

UCC Year 

The terms used in the UCC for the Solstices and Equinoxes have been chosen so that they are applicable wherever you are on the planet, irrespective of being in the Northern or Southern hemisphere

The 'Solstice' is shown in the above graphic at the '6 o'clock' position

The Solstice is celebrated by the 5th Intercalary Day '4th Season's Day' which is Day 275 of the UCC Year

This is shown by the '275' in the blue circle

 

"Solstice" = Southern Solar Stasis

(The Capricorn♑ Solstice)

This occurs when the Sun is at it's lowest southerly point below the Celestial Equator

Directly above the 'Tropic of Capricorn' ♑

Sun - Solstice
The Sun on the Ecliptic at it's lowest southerly point (-23.5° DE) below the Celestial Equator intersects the 18hrs RA line
This event is celebrated by 4th Season's Day but often actually occurs 1 day later
So, this event also acts as a marker for the start of our 4th Quarter Season:
Winter in the Northern Hemisphere & Summer in the Southern Hemisphere
The 2 hours of RA from 16hrs to 18 hrs correspond to the Zodiac Sun Sign Sagittarius ♐ currently occupied by the Constellation Scorpio
The 2 hrs RA from 18 hrs to 20 hrs correspond to the Sign Capricorn ♑ currently occupied by the constellation Sagittarius

The constellations are shifted due to the precession of the equinoxes over the course of the 'Great Year'

Sun enters Capricorn

The Sun ☉ at 0° Capricorn ♑

The Zodiac is shown here with Cancer ♋ at the bottom and Capricorn ♑ at the top - 180° opposite to the UCC Year graphic further up the page, but exactly the same cycle
