The Numbers Behind Leap Day

The concept of the leap year/day started way back in 45BC, when Julius Caesar introduced it as a way for the Gregorian calendar, to match up to our environment.

The Earth takes 365 days, 5 hours and 48 minutes to circle around the sun, so by introducing an additional day once every 4 years, the earth and calendar are somewhat realigned.

Given this occurrence is not every year, it is believed that a leap day holds substantial spiritual powers. So, let us explore the possibilities of what this leap day, may hold!


Numerology Insight

The 29th – 2+9=11

11 is known as a master number – the number of awakening, bringing a higher vibration and intensity to its meaning, paired with a deep spiritual connection.

The 1 of the 11 is associated with masculine energy, the ego to focus on one’s own life and the ability to excel as a natural leader.

However, the number 11 predominantly draws its energies from the number 1 and 2 (see below). Which in it’s self can cause a struggle to find balance.

11 is known for being the number of the deep thinker, producing insightful thoughts and exploring the creative side of ones nature. This can cause introverted tendencies and enjoyment in solitude. Petty dramas, boredom and repetitive tasks are not part of an 11’s agenda.


Of February – 2

When 11 is broken down to a single figure (1+1) it becomes 2, therefore part of the 11 energy relates to the traits of the number 2. This doubles in intensity with the 2 representing February.

2 revolves around the energy of balance and finding fulfilment from personal relationships. It radiates feminine energy, with diplomatic skills and attuned to emotions of others, demonstrating an influential and persuasive manner.

The pursuit of a 2, is to find and carry out the souls purpose or mission for this life. Being strong in the ability to communicate and listen, especially around areas of deep interest, these emotionally driven traits can flow into an over sensitive side and deliver the consequences that come with this.


???? So today, based on the numbers, could be a day to take the lead to go inside yourself, dedicating some time to deeply think about your mission for this life. To start forming ideas of how to creatively communicate your contribution and what is required to do this.
