What is a spring tide and why does it happen?

A spring tide reflects on the spinning forth of the moon. It occurs twice each lunar month all year and has no regard for the session. A deep tide occurs 7 days after a spring tide and it reflects the period of moderate tides when the sun and the moon are at right angles to each other.
