Leap Year 2020 horoscope: Some people believe in the spiritual significance of February 29
A Leap Year occurs once every four years and was created back in 45BC by Julius Caesar to avoid inconsistencies in the calendar. Because February 29 is so rare, some consider the day holds significant spiritual power for your horoscope.
From a numerological perspective, the number 29 breaks down to 11 (2+9).
New age spiritual communities consider this as relating to awakening and spiritual enlightenment.
The number 29 of course features in every other month, but February (two) is an unusual combination of numbers and thought to be a rare energy to experience.
Two in numerology is the number of pursuing your soul purpose or mission.

People believe the number carries a feminine energy with it capable of aiding you to materialise ideas into the real world.
When 11 (29th) and two (February) combine, their respective energies can create a powerful time for love, healing and teaching.
These two numbers are thought to represent the arrival of the spiritual light messenger and those who are open and aware may receive some guidance for progression.
Numerologists also believe February 29 can trigger a type of ripple effect within you because the auspicious date has such a rare vibration.
Some believe this ripple creates an opportunity to literally leap forward at this time and play catch up in our own lives.
A Leap Day provides extra time to achieve goals and this creates a vibrational impact on the dimension of time in the Universe.
From an astrological perspective, 2020’s Leap Day falls in the star sign of Pisces.
The energy and essence of Pisces concerns connecting with your deeper consciousness, emotions and spirituality.

Having another day to enjoy in the vibration of Pisces can appear like the Universe’s way of reminding us about the importance of consciousness and your own spiritual advancement.
Prior to the invention of the clock, our ancestors used the Sun and the stars for temporal guidance and also viewed synchronistic events as the way the Universe communicated movements in time.
These synchronistic events included perceiving divine messages in nature and the behaviour of beasts.
This leap in time provided by February means it is vital to observe any synchronicities that occur and whether they can provide clues about your own path of awakening and purpose.
This is especially important for those attempting to make sense of what energy February 29 has in store, as the world acts as a mirror to your existential experience.
Walking though February 29 is almost like walking through a rare portal that is only accessible to us every four years.
To most it may just feel like an extra day, but if you challenge yourself to open your awareness and think about the deeper rhythm and flow of time in this Universe, you may just be able to tap into a new energy within your own soul.
Those born on a Leap Day still have their birthday every year as this is indicated by your solar return, when the Sun returns to the same degree that it was on the day you were born.
The Sun travels through this spot every year, regardless of whether it is a Leap Year or not.
Leap Day babies can calculate their Solar Return simply by looking at their astrology chart and working out what degree the Sun was at during your time of birth.
