2016 is a Leap Year. This is where the ¼ day in the equation of 365 and ¼ days in a year is counted as an extra day. So, this year there are 366 days. While not strictly an astrological theme, it does play a role and it does as well for Numerological calculations, if you were born on this day, that is. If you were born on February 29th, you would have the awkward distinction of being called a leap-year baby and some use the term ‘leapling’.
Interestingly, the Sun will conjunct Neptune this week and you might have guessed it, on February 29th! Well, at least, that is true for everyone living in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and all other locations in the vicinity. If you think this is a bit of a leap, since you live here in North America and the conjunction occurs on February 28th, the day most leaplings probably celebrate their special day, then you are in-tune with this theme.
Interpreted from a positive perspective, these people are, well… rare and while not enough alone to ensure fame, being born a leapling is a solid step towards being great or, at least, unique. If you are a leapling, this year, at least, you deserve to have your cake and eat it too.
Aries (Mar 21–Apr 20)
Sweet dreams are flowing through your mind. Your participation point is to elaborate upon them, give them distinction and clear definition. Seeing these dreams as your reality now and feeling the rush and the joy of them. This is not mere fantasy; it is a key to manifestation. However, you choose to do it, focus to manifest your desires. ‘Your future is infinitely bright’.
Taurus (Apr 20–May 21)
A feature of destiny is that we are meant to creatively engage in it in a co-creative process. At various points along the way our co-creative input is meant to increase. This is so for you now. Your public status and reputation require your attention. Focus to illustrate beauty and balance and pay extra attention to the details. Other key players are destined to assist you, so reach out and be receptive too.
Gemini (May 21–Jun 21)
Striking the balance between the personal and your social life is now in focus. The emphasis leans to your personal life where home and family take center stage. Yet there is work to do. In some respects, you need your family as much as they need you, even if it does not appear that way. Ironically, sometimes it is best to commit to surrendering.
Cancer (Jun 21–Jul 22)
Over the past few years some important changes have likely occurred, perhaps especially in your professional life. These have and continue to keep you busy, perhaps more than you like. Yet all the while there is a summons to do some soul searching. It seems to be speaking of the importance of healing by way of the focus of your mind and imagination.
Leo (Jul 22–Aug 23)
Some cycles are deeper than others and some more profound, like this one. One way or another, you have been and continue to dig deep. Renovation is a keyword, but it could refer to clearing old emotional attitudes as much as deadwood. Meanwhile, important interactions with others are awakening you to new realizations. Pay close attention, these could prove profitable.
Virgo (Aug 23–Sep 22)
Beyond your close attention to detail and engineering approach, you also feel the call of the mystic. It may seem completely alien to you, but it is there. You may respond by engaging in meditative moments or long, deep reflections guided by a cozy couch and a hot drink. Yet there is romance in it too. Whether this romantic urge leads you to love’s embrace or adventure depends on your destiny.
Libra (Sep 22–Oct 22)
You have been on a creative roll and it continues. Yet now the plot is drifting toward the need to keep the faith. An important, if indirect, way to achieve this is to tend to your health. What can you do to rejuvenate and uplift your spirits? Your ambitions likely remain high and you will soon get your second wind, but there may be a temporary valley period you must contend with for the next few weeks.
Scorpio (Oct 22–Nov 21)
A creative spark is igniting your imagination. Thoughts about new possibilities are dancing in your mind. These are both the source and cause of inventive thinking. Beyond all outcomes, it is your overall lifestyle flow that is your main focus. Perhaps you feel the need to make a move or start a new business or explore alternatives regarding your usual rhythms.
Sagittarius (Nov 21–Dec 21)
Beyond all facts and hard realities, a philosopher and a mystic and perhaps also a dreamer and an idealist hover in your heart. Even if usually dormant, at least, one of these has been awakened. All the while, a vision of the future lingers as well. Somewhere within it all, circumstances are pushing you to take a few risks and these require forward thinking.
Capricorn (Dec 21–Jan 19)
Circumstances are pushing you to cultivate a deeper and wider perspective on things. It could perhaps be described as a broader vision. This could include deepening bonds with certain people while allowing others to naturally dissolve. Commitment to attaining new knowledge is featured. A healthier lifestyle and perhaps on that in alignment with social, cultural and even spiritual trends is implied.
Aquarius (Jan 19–Feb 19)
You have entered a cycle destined to guide you to clarify your priorities. Generally, you may feel quite unattached to any ‘thing’. What you do want is to be free and live according to your principles. These include fairness, justice for all and people who are genuine. You do not want to feel that you have to like others or be liked, but you do want to be respected. An unlimited supply in your savings account would ice the cake.
Pisces (Feb 19–Mar 20)
You are feeling the itch to explore new territory. This process has probably already begun. But, you may feel stymied by certain perception patterns. While open to meaningful conversation, you are not in the mood to simply socialize. There is something of a soul-searching process underway, yet your objectives are practical. What you want is a plan you can believe in.
