The Sun's Ingress Astrological Information 2015 - 2017

Updated January 1, 2015 by J McCaul

Below is a table displaying three years of Solar Ingress dates, times (UTC), seasonal changes, and zodiac sign. It's a common question, "When does ____ season start?" Each year, the date and time is slightly different, so we can't just say, "Oh, that's on the 21st of every three months" because, obviously, that's not accurate! For more information describing the color codes and abbreviations, refer to the main planet ingress page.
