When the southern hemisphere is tiltad towards the sun it has  summer soltice because sun's rays are vertical on the southern hemisphere.

At that time the northern hemisphere is away from the sun so it has winter  solstise at that time.

So when the sun's rays hit the northern hemisphere then the northern hemisphere would have summer while the southern hemisphere would have winter.
