Every person born on that extra day in leap year is a Pisces. How’s that for the ultimate Pisces phenomenon? Your birthday disappears for years at a time, kind of like Brigadoon. Also, were it not for February 29 Pisces’ sacrifice, over time everyone’s solar return would not be even remotely near their birthday. How’s that for Neptunian?
Something I never thought about before, but it’s so elegant. You rock, Satori! 🙂
I never thought about it before either. But, what I’m thinking now is that I’d like to do a big ol face-plant in that cake! OMG, that icing looks wonderous! <3
That cake. I want some.
Many Pisceans don’t look their age. I wonder if it is because the February 29 ones only have a birthday every four years 🙂
That is a really cool way to look at it, Satori. 🙂
(and I second Josi’s comment about that cake… mmm, cake! The icing on it looks really difficult to do.)
On that same topic of Leap years, I hear some talk of how accurate or inaccurate a Pluto return date/time is based on changing degrees with Pluto in a return. I’m thinking of precession, the 1 degree every 72 years and the return of Pluto. If there is an extra day in February every 4 years, does that change the calendar days somewhat, or rather rectify calculations when taking into consideration the precessions, and figuring out the real date e.g. of Pluto return for the USA?
