SOLSTICE* (Solsc): either of the two extremes of the Earth’s 23.4 axial-tilt relative to the sunlight falling on its surface. Only at the Summer Solstice is the Earth’s north pole tilted the full 23.4 towards the Sun... and only at the Yule Solstice is it tilted the full 23.4 away.

EQUINOX (Eqx): the Spring or Autumn quarter begins for the Northern Hemisphere as the North and South Poles momentarily are poised on the Earth’s terminator; the boundary-line between night and day. As a consequence, only at these times of year are the hours of night and day equal.

CROSSQUARTER (XQ): here is defined as the moment in time precisely half-way between an adjacent solstice and equinox. Not being an actual formal astronomical term, "crossquarter" can be defined in a number of ways (see a more extended discussion of this issue here).
