We can look to the stars for one explanation. Astronomically, the sun is at its lowest point in the sky. The days are shorter; the nights are longer. Symbolically, this represents a time of inner reflection and contact with the spiritual side of one's nature. One can take the initial steps toward finding life purpose. Let this prayer be your guide.
