The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms (節氣). Chǔshǔ (pīnyīn) or Shosho (rōmaji) (traditional Chinese: 處暑; simplified Chinese: 处暑; Japanese: 処暑; Korean: 처서; Vietnamese: Xử thử; literally: "limit of heat") is the 14th solar term. It begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 150° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 165°. It more often refers in particular to the day when the Sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 150°. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around 23 August and ends around 7 September.

Pentads[edit]

  • 鷹乃祭鳥, 'Eagles worship the Birds'
  • 天地始肅, 'Heaven and Earth begin to Withdraw', alluding to the end of summer
  • 禾乃登, 'Grains become Ripe'
