Chinese 24 Seasonal Periods (Solar Terms) 二十四節氣

Many have confused the Lunar Chinese calendar and 24 solar terms. Ancient Chinese had long used the solar movements for agricultural activities. The traditional Chinese calendar is known as Agricultural Calendar or “Nong Li’. It is based on the movement of the moon as well as the Sun. ‘Tropical Year’ and ‘synodic month’ is the basic elements of the Agricultural Calendar. A tropical year is the time forms a vernal equinox to the next, which is 365.2422 days. The time between two successive occurrences of new moon or full moon is called a synodic month, and equals 29.5306 days. Months in Agricultural Calendar start with a new moon, which occurs when the Moon and Sun move to the same longitude on the ecliptic. There are only 354.3672 days in 12 synodic months, more than 10 days shorter that a tropical year of 365.2422 days. The difference accumulates to give a lead month. There are 7 leaps months in 19 years in the Agricultural Calendar. 

This Chinese 24 seasonal period is the sun movement relative to earth location that caused the climatic changes in a year and is divided by 24 sessions. Each session is roughly half a month long.  The first two weeks is terms as Jia Qi節氣” and the middle month is called the Zong Qi "中氣’. These terms are associated with weather and time changes.  

These 24 periods in accordance to sequential order are: Spring Solstice 立春、Spring Showers雨水、Insects Waken驚蟄、Vernal Equinox春分、Bright & Clear清明、Corn rain 穀雨、Summer Solstice 立夏、Corn Forms小滿、Corn On Ear 芒種、Summer Solstice夏至、Moderate Heat 小署、Great Heat大署、Autumn Solstice 立秋、End of Heat 處署、White Dew白露、Autumnal Equinox秋分、Cold Dew寒露、Frost 霜降、Winter Solstice立冬、Light Snow小雪、Heavy Snow大雪、Winter Solstice 冬至、Moderate Cold 小寒、Severe Cold大寒。 This is the indicator for the climatic changes for agricultural cultivation as well as harvesting periods.  Crops and produce growth phenomenon are reflected here.

Inferior Planets (are closer to the Sun than the Earth): Mercury and Venus

Superior Planets (further away from the Sun than Earth): Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Eclipses

Solar eclipse occurs when the moon is in line between the Earth and the Sun. The moon casts a shadow on the Earth’s surface and obscures some parts of the sun. The proportion of the Sun being blocked depends on the position of the observer on the Earth. When only the moon’s penumbral shadow strikes the Earth, a partial eclipse of the Sun is observed.  However, if the Moon’s dark umbra shadow sweeps across Earth’s surface, a total eclipse of the Sun is seen. Sometimes the moon is farther away from the Earth and its umbra shadow is not long enough to reach the Earth. The Moon appears smaller than the Sun and cannot completely cover it. Instead the ‘antumbral’ or negative shadow reaches the Earth. If you are within this shadow, you will see an eclipse where a ring or ‘annulus’ of bright sunlight surrounds the Moon at the maximum phase. Those within the penumbra would observe a partial eclipse. 

Lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon enters the earth’s shadow. The Earth casts a long shadow behind the side facing the Sun. This shadow has two parts: the total shadow called the umbra and the partial shadow termed the penumbra. If the Moon becomes completely immersed into the umbra, a total eclipse occurs; and if only a portion of it falls into the umbra, a partial eclipse occurs. During totality, the Moon is not completely invisible. This is due to the fact that some sunlight is refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere into the umbra and illuminates the Moon, making it coppery-red. Its brightness varies for different total eclipses depending on the geometry of the Moon’s path though the umbra and also on the Earth’s atmospheric conditions. Sometimes the Moon only enters the penumbra without touching the umbra. This is a penumbra lunar eclipse. During a penumbral lunar eclipse, only the apparent brightness of the Moon will become dimmer but the Moon will not be obscured by the Earth’s shadow.
