If you play the solo variant: can you skip the solar phase step for example in the second to last round (if you anticipate to finish everything by yourself to gain an additional point) or is increasing one of the parameters mandatory?

It is mandatory, there is a variant to omit this phase from the game entirely, but if you're not using that variant the first player must raise one of the global parameters.

The expansions introduces the solar phase as

ALWAYS MANDATORY when playing solo.
When playing multiplayer the solar phase is a must. But the game provides a official variant that simply says "dont use the solar phase"

I dont have my copy of venus next but i was wondering about this rule and the variant. I will definitely start using the variant actually, if i feel the games are lasting too much i will try the solar phase on.
