This year's Sabian Symbol for leap day is 10 degrees Pisces, with a vision of men crossing a narrow road in search of illumination. The ancients called this day Phaethon because they believed that Zeus had taken the form of a horse to save him from being burned up by his father Apollo during his trial by fire.
The word "phaeton" comes from the Greek phaeo, which means "to be pale or white." So the meaning of the Phaeton Moon is that of a pale or ghostly moon. According to myth, Phaeton stole the horses of the sun God Apollo and drove them through cosmic space until he reached the earth where he tried to prove himself worthy by shooting an arrow into the sky. But despite his best efforts, the horse threw him from its back and he was destroyed on impact with the earth.
These include Ghost Day, Dim Day, Dead Day, and Blank Day. The term "leap year" comes from a medieval tradition calling for judges to wear robes when presiding over legal cases. If any part of their clothing became torn or dirty, it was thought that someone would die soon.
The zodiac sign of persons born on February 29th is Pisces. They are emotional and sentimental, and find great pleasure in music and art.
Pisceans are known for their kindness and generosity. They are also known as softhearted people who would never hurt another living being. This is because they believe that we are all connected. When someone else is suffering, so is their own inner pain which means that helping others is really helping themselves too. These qualities make a Piscean person good friends and lovers. They are also known as shy individuals who prefer solitude to crowds. However, when they open up to you they can be very trusting and loyal.
Pisceans are attracted to the arts and music. They enjoy reading and writing letters but do not like to talk on the phone or attend social events regularly. Pisceans are sensitive about their feelings and try not to show how they are feeling inside. If you know how they are feeling, it makes it easier for them to share their with you.
Pisceans will always try their best to achieve what they want in life. Although they may appear to be weak, this is just a front used by them to hide their true strength.
The dates of each Zodiac sign shift significantly due to leap years. Aquarius, for example, begins on January 20 and finishes on February 19, although this is only the connotation. In actuality, it varies somewhat from one leap year to the next throughout a four-year period. The same can be said for all signs.
In general, the date a sign rises will fall on a day between March 21 and April 20, except for when it falls on April 21 or some other lunar month ending with an odd number of days. So if you were born on December 31st, you'll find that your sign comes up every two years on the average, but sometimes once in a year, or even twice in a single decade.
Leap years cause all sorts of problems for us astrologers. First of all, they complicate our chart calculations. For example, if you have your birth chart completed using the modern method, then there are certain parts of the map where you're supposed to be born in order to get your very own unique constellation. These areas include Africa, Australia, India, Israel, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malta, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, New Zealand, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Paraguay, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and Vietnam.
On March 29, 2014, we received some unfavorable news. Unfortunately, this year is not a leap year for those nice folks born on February 29. The leap year guarantees that our Gregorian calendar is fully synchronized with the Earth's rotations, as it takes the Earth roughly 365.242199 days to orbit the sun. But since we know that it takes us about 31⁄2 years to go through all the units in a linear sequence (years, months, weeks, days), then if we exclude the effect of leap years, we can see that we are slightly off by 1 or 2 days every time we add a month to the clock.
However, this does not affect your daily life at all! Leap years are used to determine what date should be entered into religious calendars like the Christian Calendar and the Buddhist Calendar.
For example, to find out when Easter will be this year, we need to know how far back the clock has gone in relation to normal years. Since it has been almost 30 years since the last normal year, then we can assume that the clock has moved forward 2 days because there were no leap years between 1980 and 2013. That means that Easter will be on Sunday, rather than on Monday as was the case in 1980.
Now, whether this changes anything else is another question...
