Leap Days come around every four years and were created as a way to balance out the inconsistencies in our calendar.
Because the 29th of February only happens once every four years, many people believe that the day holds significant spiritual power.
The Numerology of a Leap Day
29 is a number 11 day (2+9), which is a Master Number in numerology and is said to represent spiritual awakening and enlightenment.
Even though we have a 29 in every month, the 29th of February (2) is a rare combination of numbers and therefore, a rare energy to experience.
In numerology, 2 is the number of pursuing your soul purpose or mission. It carries a feminine energy that inspires us to birth our creations and bring our ideas out of our mind and into the physical world.
When 29 and 2 come together, their energy forms to create a powerful time for love, healing, and teaching. This number code also represents the arrival of a spiritual light messenger, so if we stay open and aware, we may receive an important sign or message on this day that brings us some much needed guidance.
Pay attention to your dreams or signs from nature. See if an animal messenger shows up, or if you encounter some synchronistic events that seem to be pointing you in a particular direction.
The Spiritual Significance of a Leap Day
Because the 29th of February is such a rare vibration, it can also cause a type of ripple effect within us. This ripple creates an opportunity for us to “leap” forward in our own spiritual growth and evolution.
A leap day allows us extra time to get things done and this creates a vibrational impact on the dimension of time in the Universe.
Use the energy of this day to bring awareness to something that you wish to leap forward with in your life.
Assess where you would like to create more time and energy for something and send your intentions out into the Universe.
As we create this leap and expand the dimension of time, see if you can also hold space for the fact that all that we really have is the present moment.
In higher dimensions and as we raise our own vibration, we come to realize that there is no time. Everything just happens in the now. There is no past, or future, everything is just a moment of Oneness. All time rolls into one single moment of eternity.
This can be hard to understand but the more we allow ourselves to be present, rather than lost in the past or future, the closer we can come to understanding this and feeling into its truth.
“The present moment is the only moment available to us, and it is the door to all moments.”– Thich Nhat Hanh
Leap Day 2020
In 2020, February 29 holds the vibration of number 8 (2+9+2+2+0+2+0), which is a karmic number that represents the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. It also signifies abundance, balance, and being in sync with the flow of the Universe.
What’s interesting is that the day following, March 1, 2020, is also a number 8 day giving us two 8 days back to back. This is rare, and indicates that the Universe wants us to pay attention to this 8 vibration.
This 8 energy also ties in to the current cosmic weather as well, as we are currently preparing to enter the new astrological year on the March Equinox and Saturn, the planet of karma, is also preparing to begin a new cycle too.
Black Moon Lilith and Chiron are also aligned on this day, which you can read more about here.
Leap Day Exercise
Reflect on the cycle you have traveled since the last leap day four years ago.
Perhaps think about any lessons or life events that have repeated themselves or any patterns that have presented over the last 4 years.
See if you can bring you can identify any lessons or gifts that have unfolded and how they may have encouraged your growth.
If you notice a pattern or repeated events, don’t worry about how to “fix” it. Just acknowledge it, become aware of it, and practice some love and compassion towards yourself and any events that unfolded.
