When do people born on February 29 celebrate their birthdays in a non-Leap year? I am frequently asked by people who were born on February 29 which day they should celebrate their birthday.
February 28? Or March 1?
The answer is specific.
You were still in the womb on February 28, so that is certainly not your birthday. And if your year of birth had not been a Leap Year, you would have been born on March 1st. Also, February 29 and March 1 both add up to 4, and this fact keeps you aligned with whatever your Life Path Number happens to be. You do not have two different Life Path Numbers.
A LEAP YEAR occurs every four years. An additional day (February 29th) ensures that the calendar remains in alignment with Earth’s rotation around the sun. However, that extra day can produce a vibrational “wobble” or see-saw-effect which is felt throughout the year, and in the case of LEAPLINGS, throughout the life.
BEING BORN ON FEBRUARY 29TH enables you to connect all the various aspects of your journey in an evolutionary way, even though you do have to contend with the Leap Year Wobble as you go through life. But rather than producing feelings of constant instability, this birth date can produce unusual levels of resourcefulness, adaptability, and determination.
So, whether it’s February 29th in a Leap Year or March 1st in those other three years, Happy Birthday, dear Leapling…

2020 brings us into uncharted territory which is triggering our deepest fear – fear of the unknown. However, although these are times of massive change, it is important to notice those areas that have not changed at all because we cannot yet see viable alternatives. These critical aspects are easier to recognize in a Leap Year.
As the system of the 1000s continues to collapse, it is essential to our survival that we learn what 1 has to teach. As the first number, 1 LEADS. Notice how the major issues of the day revolve around those in LEADERSHIP positions. And notice just how unqualified, incompetent, and out of touch with reality so many of those people are.
The collapse of the old system is revealing how some ‘leaders’ are pushing humanity backwards in the hope that this will revive the old system. But that is impossible. Everything changes in the passage of time. Empires rise – and empires fall. And in the 2000s, the very existence of ‘empires’ is being seriously questioned.
1 is the number of SELF and our natural uniqueness. As a species, we are 1, and yet each 1 of us is a separate and distinct INDIVIDUAL — a ‘1-off’. You are the 1-and-only-YOU – among billions of unique others. But we give the power of our individuality away because the power-hungry convince us that only they can lead.
A LEAP YEARoccurs every four years. An additional day (February 29th) ensures that the calendar remains in alignment with Earth’s rotation around the sun. However, that extra day produces a vibrational “wobble” or see-saw-effect which is felt throughout the year. The Leap Year Wobble shows us how we have been going around in ever-repeating circles by CONNECTING past events to present events. Time passes, but nothing changes.
We organize our lives around our calendars. Birthdays, marriages, anniversaries, life events, religious and cultural observances, coordination, appointments, and planning. This is how we record our journey through time. The calendar has tremendous power – especially the Gregorian Calendar which is the most widely used around the world.
2 is the number of CONNECTION, and we have to connect 1 and 1 together (11) in order to reach the next step – 2. The change of millennium (from electrical 1 to magnetic 2) has disrupted our sense of certainty to a massive degree, and Leap Years seem to intensify things even more. Therefore, 2020 is likely to take our fear of the unknown to another level entirely. Human beings have a debilitating fear of CHANGE which we must overcome – because we also know that things cannot stay the way they are.
2019 brought us to the end of the decade of the 10s, and 10 brings CHANGE whether we feel ready for it or not. You see, there are only 9 numbers in the numeric spectrum, after which all other numbers can be reduced to a single digit. 10 brings us back to 1, but on a new level.
19/10/1 is the holding pattern that contains everything we did not learn – and everything we need to know – in order to evolve into a new and more peaceful form of existence. 19 exposes hypocrisy and atrocity, so that healing can occur. 1 takes. 9 gives. The karmic energy of 19/10/1 is teaching us about the power of ‘give and take’ – compromise – individuals pulling together for the common good. And we are also seeing the deadlock that forms when fixed belief against fixed belief stops progress in its tracks.
Only by moving through unstable Karmic 19 and all those unresolved matters of the 1900s can we move safely into the 2000s. That bygone era still has much to teach us in matters of industry, banking, politics, war and peace, the racial divide, the gender gap, control of the ‘masses’, and how primitive those days actually were. We have experienced a LOT since then, including two world wars – and now is the time to learn and grow from those experiences.
The double-2 energy of 2020 translates as the Master Number 22/4.
22 is the most balanced form of 4. So, both numbers are equally important this year. Practical 4 is always present, while the more idealistic 22 moves through our lives in less frequent but more intense waves of both empathy and opportunity. Both 2 and 4 emphasize the importance of PATIENCE, DETAIL, EFFICIENCY, ORGANIZATION, and RIGHT TIMING.
22 pertains to the ‘masses’, or to use a more accurate word – PEOPLE. 2 is the number of CONNECTION. It connects individual people together. 22 is the number that connects people together on a global scale. And right now, the entire world is connected through a global dis-ease known as Covid-19 – or Coronavirus.
2 = SENSITIVITY and governs the respiratory system – the lungs – breathing – and the heaviest of emotions, grief. The heart and lungs are SO closely connected when it comes to the impact that emotions carry, especially when they are held in and denied access out of the body. It is impossible to look at what is happening to people, the animals, and Earth herself without feeling the grief of so much suffering and terror. We are evolving emotionally, and emotion is our response to experience. The heaviness we are feeling right now is coming from our awareness of reality, without which we remain in denial.
How heartbreaking it is to know that we are still tearing each other to pieces – dropping bombs on people in their homes – shooting children in their schools. Aren’t our lives short enough? Why must we kill each other? Why must we kill total strangers for some political reason to which they are not directly connected? Why do we tolerate such cruelty and disregard for life? And not just human life. What we do to animals is beyond anything I can describe.
The quest for certainty blocks the search for meaning. Uncertainty is the very condition which impels people to unfold their powers. ~Eric Fromm
This era of UNCERTAINTY reminds us that the future is not something to be predicted or be overwhelmed by. It is something to be created and participated in.
The decade of the 10s (which was also the decade of the teens) brought us to the next step – which is where we are now.After 19/1 comes 20/2. And it now becomes apparent, in the see-saw – roller coaster – Jack-in-a-box movement of 2020 and its Leap Year Wobble – just how unexplored the feminine side of life actually is.
2020 brings us firmly into the feminine 2000s and yet we are trying to live as if we are still in the masculine 1000s. The more we struggle to get back to the way things were, the further we drift from real, meaningful, systemic, and life-sustaining CHANGE.
Movement is life. Life is movement. But the push and pull of trying to move forward and hold on to the past at the same time is creating a deadly standstill. And look – the global system – the industrial system – the class system – is indeed starting to grind to a halt. Movement is restricted.
“The future is uncharted, and we can’t map it until we get there.” ~Margaret Heffernan
2 is the number of cooperation and coming together to achieve a common goal. 22 brings INVENTION to a whole new level. Not mere extensions of existing technology or ideas – but something completely NEW and untried. We live in a time of dire necessity – and necessity is indeed the mother of invention.
22 enables us to bring large-scale ideas to fruition. This is the number of the master builder, the mover and shaker, and the architect of well laid plans. 22/4 can greatly improve conditions for the general population. But in unloving and uncaring hands, it can bring untold chaos and suffering. 22 is also the MASTER DESTROYER.
When 22 is infused with LOVE, CARING, and COOPERATION, human life will have a chance to heal, evolve, move out of the deadly rut we’re in, and discover our true potential, despite the efforts being made to stop us.
2 represents DETAIL and THOROUGHNESS. We are dealing with complex intertwined situations for which accurate information is not immediately available. We mustdevelop patience with detail, and instead of jumping to premature conclusions, learn to WAIT for workable solutions to form. 2 is the number of PATIENCE and slows everything down. But unevolved 1 makes us impatient for results and speeds everything up as we blindly race past the most vital details.
We have to stop racing through life. Competing. Comparing. Judging. Dividing. Separating. Until we stop racing, racism will remain firmly in place.
2 also reminds us that we are all fellow travelers on the road of life. 2 is always the result of TWO 1s, and when you turn those two 1s on their side, you have the equals sign. 2 is the number of EQUALITY. We have been programmed to believe that the accumulation of money is the mark of a person’s WORTH. In the 2000s, we are going to realize that this is a gross miscalculation – not only by those who have enormous amounts of money, but also by those who don’t.
The last time we experienced a Leap Year that was also a 22/4 year was 1984. And we cannot ignore the obvious connection to George Orwell’s prophetic novel, “NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR”, about a cruel, insane, dystopian, ‘up is down’ ‘war is peace’ world which bears a sinister resemblance to the world we live in today. Amazingly, this work may have been about a futuristic 1984, but he wrote it 36 years earlier in 1948, which was also a 22/4 Leap Year.
Here are some other connections between what happened in 1984 and what’s happening now:
The first MAC personal computers went on sale in 1984.
The first TED conference occurred in 1984.
The discovery of the AIDS Virus was announced in the USA in 1984.
It was in the 22/4 Leap Year of 1984 that MICHAEL MILKEN was at the height of the unprecedented insider-trading scam for which he was eventually sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined $600 million. And leaping forward 36 years, Donald Trump issued a pardon to Michael Milken in February, 2020.
12 years ago, in the Leap Year of 2008, and the final year of the George W. Bush presidency, the Leap Year ushered in a financial crisis that almost brought the entire global economy down. The banks were “too big to fail” and were abusing the global economy – gambling with it – risking it all. At the end of 2008, as this was reaching severe-crisis-level, the USA voted for its first black president, which was a shock to the ‘establishment’ in itself, and which brought the question of race right into the open. Racial and economic matters are intrinsically connected.
In the end, the banks had to be bailed out by the people, and the people were angry and afraid. Suddenly we were talking about austerity, eviction, foreclosure, unemployment, recession, depression, and the ‘banksters’ who were openly draining the wealth of the people – and continue to do so now.
Four years later, 2012 (a 5 year in the world – the number of freedom and sudden development) not only brought the re-election of Barack Obama, but also the height of the Arab Spring and the Occupy Movement – and a global condemnation of the political/industrial/military complex. The Will of the People was rising up in astonishing numbers to claim their freedom, city after city, country after country.
But then came the inevitable backlash and crackdown by those in power – along with a new awareness of how cold and militarized the police throughout the world had become. 2012 also brought Super Storm Sandy which hit the US East Coast in October, and Super Typhoon Pablo which hit the Philippines in December. We had not experienced such devastating and widespread storms before. And then there was the horrifying shooting of 20 little children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School – which did NOTHING to change the gun laws in the USA.
In the Leap Year 2016 The World Health Organization announced an epidemic of the Zika Virus. And a vaccine was found to be effective against the Ebola Virus which broke out in West Africa three years earlier. 2016 was a 9 Year in the world – the number of endings, completion, and deep emotions. February 29, 2016 was a 22/4 day in the world, (2+11+9=22/4), and so the events of that particular Leap Year are being felt 4 years later in 2020. 2016 also brought the election of Donald Trump.
Going back 72 years, 1948 (another 22/4 Leap Year), brought us the creation of ISRAEL and the continuation of the brutal never-ending Arab/Israeli war.
WHO (the World Health Organization was established, and the NHS (National Health Service) was established in the U.K.
We are living through the end of an entire era in the human journey, the collapse of established norms – the establishment itself, and a dangerous wave of anti-intellectualism from which a new form of fascism is rising. The age of the bully is reaching a crescendo. These are dangerous times indeed in which the choices we make are vital to our future wellbeing – as individuals – as a species – and as individual parts of a living planet.
We are learning things now that we could not have known before. The more we evolve emotionally, the more we evolve intellectually. The vibrations of our feminine magnetic feelings are forcing open our masculine electrical minds – and that is why there is not only a surge of anti-intellectualism, but also a war on women – all over the world.
The Leap Year shakes things loose. INCOMPETENCE is something we may see a lot of this year – from people who are in over their heads and have no experience of what they are dealing with.
What we are experiencing now, both personally and collectively, is what we have to move THROUGH in order to evolve. No one is immune.
How telling it is that we now live at a time when we individuals must keep our physical distance from each other. As we remain ‘trapped in time’, between the 1000s and the 2000s, we cannot understand OTHERS, until we understand our SELVES. What we did not learn from that thousand-year journey, we are scrambling to learn now – at this pivotal point of 2020.
