Because Earth doesn’t orbit upright, but is instead tilted on its axis by 23-and-a-half degrees, Earth’s Northern and Southern Hemispheres trade places in receiving the sun’s light and warmth most directly. The tilt of the Earth – not our distance from the sun – is what causes winter and summer. At the December solstice, the Northern Hemisphere is leaning most away from the sun for the year.
Because the Northen Hemisphere gets the least amount of light, it is in its deepest Yin energies phase. If you live in the Southern hemisphere, you can enjoy the maximum Yang energies of the Winter Solstice.

Simply set your intention (depending on the Hemisphere you are at) and send it to the Field of Love of the 5 Elements! You can also put your intention in the middle of the Five Elements and invoke them to work on aligning it with the biological rhythm of nature and the Earth!
