节气(wikipedia) 指二十四时节和气候,是中国古代订立的一种用来指导农事的补充历法。由于东亚传统农历是一种“阴阳合历”,即根据太阳也根据月亮的运行制定的,因此不能完全反映太阳运行周期,但中国又是一个农业社会,农业需要严格了解太阳运行情况,农事完全根据太阳进行,所以在历法中又加入了单独反映太阳运行周期的“二十四节气”,用作确定闰月的标准。

 

solar term is any of 24 points in traditional East Asian lunisolar calendars that matches a particular astronomical event or signifies some natural phenomenon. The points are spaced 15° apart along the ecliptic and are used by lunisolar calendars to stay synchronized with the seasons, which is crucial for agrarian societies. The solar terms are also used to calculate intercalary months in East Asian calendars; which month is repeated depends on the position of the sun at the time.
