What surprise is in store for your sign? (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Leap Years occur pretty much every four years and 2024 is one, with 29 days in February instead of 28.

Traditionally, folk have taken Leap Day as a time when women, instead of men, can ‘do’ the proposing.

This is an old Irish custom based on a legend of Saint Bridget and Saint Patrick. It once had legal basis in Scotland and England. Nowadays, of course, anyone can ‘do’ the proposing.

But let’s use that theme of unusual, unexpected, or out-there proposals and draw a tarot card to see what surprise your star sign might be receiving this February 29!

March 21 to April 20

Tarot card for Aries for Leap Day: The Hanged Man

Meaning: Someone gives you a totally unexpected and, dare I say, wacky idea of how to overcome a longstanding obstacle or blockage in your life. At first, you think ‘no way’… but then, well, it kind of makes sense.

Look for and ask and talk about your problems today. Someone has a viewpoint that you have yet to consider. Someone has an experience to share that will unlock the right answer. This is a game-changer. You’re about to blast through something frustrating and make headway again.

Tarot card for Taurus for Leap Day: The Tower

Meaning: You might receive some very shocking, maybe even negative, news today. It doesn’t have to be personal to you, it’s just unexpected and has a destructive vibe. Wow. Let it sink in. Let it do some work within to wobble, push over, and collapse some outdated or unhelpful self belief or opinion that you’ve been dragging around and need to refresh!

This ‘bad news’ serves a purpose, it jolts you out of complacency or stagnation, and make you update your outlook!

Gemini

May 22 to June 21

Tarot card for Gemini for Leap Day: Ace of Cups

Meaning: Well, well, someone has a big admirer! Ace of Cups is the tarot’s strongest card for new romance (or deep friendship). Look for a Water sign who gets a little dewy-eyed when you’re around and always wants to chat or linger. Look for people who are creative and charismatic and empathetic, and who you enjoy being around.

Someone is going to emerge who could be a true BFF or even soul mate for years to come. True love starts here

Cancer

June 22 to July 23

Open yourself up to advice and assistance today (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Cancer for Leap Day: Nine of Cups

Meaning: Expect to receive a helping hand where you usually expect a clip round the ear from (so to speak)! The Nine of Wands reveals you will receive an important reassurance, offer of practical assistance, or valuable advice from a source you usually don’t gravitate towards, for fair reasons.

Be open-minded about who can help you today. Don’t block anyone, don’t ignore anyone, don’t swerve saying hi to anyone. It’s the last place you expect help to come from.

Leo

July 24 to August 23

A shake-up is required (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Leo for Leap Day: Five of Wands

Meaning: Someone might alert you to a problem they’ve got (possibly with you) today. It might emerge as a direct conversation or more of a ‘symptom’ of discontent, like a frosty reception or unhelpful attitude. Zoom in. Pay attention. Ask what’s up and remain calm as they share their grievance.

This can, and should, be nipped in the bud with an open chat and a sharing of ideas. You can sort this out quickly, don’t let it fester. The Five of Wands shows that some kind of adjustment is needed, but it’s easily done.

Virgo

August 24 to September 23

Once again, say yes (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Virgo for Leap Day: Knight of Wands

Meaning: Expect to receive a really, truly exciting and spontaneous invitation to do something adventurous and inspiring. Say yes (obviously). The person who asks you will be a lovely, fun-loving, confident character, possibly a Fire sign (Leo, Aries, Sagittarius). The nature of the invite might be creative, travel, lifestyle, or educational – or maybe all of those!

You didn’t see this coming, and your natural instinct is to consider carefully before agreeing, but you should go with the flow and just say yes.

Libra

September 24 to October 23

Get ready to back yourself (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Libra for Leap Day: Two of Wands

Meaning: You will called upon to make your priority clear today, one way or another, so you should prep by working out what that truly is. There will be a real benefit to establishing your number one goal or focus right now – it’s likely there’s an opportunity to progress with it, but you need to make sure you’ve got the resources, time, and energy to do so.

Someone needs assurances that you’re really, truly all in. Be ready to convince them and you can make amazing headway.

Scorpio

October 24 to November 22

Good vibes for you, Scorpio (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Scorpio for Leap Day: Six of Coins

Meaning: A random act of kindness, possibly from a stranger, has you feeling all warm and fuzzy today. Good karma is the way forward, right? Accelerate towards living this way by offering someone a random act of generosity yourself – a loved one, a colleague, a neighbour, or even a stranger.

Smile and the world smiles back. You will experience something today that totally reaffirms that truth for you in your heart and soul. Enjoy this moment.

Sagittarius

November 23 to December 21

A real game-changer (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Sagittarius for Leap Day: The Moon

Meaning: A really stirring piece of news, information or gossip comes out of the blue today and changes how you think about something, or someone. You didn’t see this coming but, in hindsight, you can put the pieces together now and perhaps realise this was obvious if you’d have noticed the signs.

You can use this intel to make a better choice in future, or learn from someone else’s mistakes. Extract the life lesson. Don’t judge too harshly. And move along.

Capricorn

December 22 to January 21

Someone’s got their eye on you (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Capricorn for Leap Day: Knight of Cups

Meaning: Hey, you’ve got a secret romantic admirer! The Knight of Cups is the kind of suitor who can sweep you off your feet and make the everyday world feel charged with magic.

Get ready to feel like you’re living in a movie romance. Be aware of charismatic, attractive, passionate, and creative people in your realm. Notice the people who seem to always help or compliment you. Be open-hearted and learn of your new admirer!

Aquarius

January 22 to February 19

The truth can be hard to take (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Aquarius for Leap Day: Knight of Swords

Meaning: Someone challenges you today and it comes as a surprise because you didn’t know they felt the way they’re saying they do. They might even come off as a little aggressive or riled up. Let the flames die down, don’t add fuel to this. Listen well, seek to understand their point of view. Take a break to absorb and consider your response.

This is actually a good thing, Aquarius, because their honesty alerts you to something you need to tackle now, vs letting it fester longer. Thank them for their home truth.

A well-earned surprise (Picture: Getty/Metro.co.uk)

Tarot card for Pisces for Leap Day: Six of Wands

Meaning: A fabulous piece of good news lands in your lap today! How lovely. This is likely to relate to something you’ve done well, achieved, or consider a talent or strength. This news not only reinforces that confidence but also offers a new opportunity to build on it and make even more progress.

Say yes immediately. Show gratitude. Display your excitement at being asked to do more. This is the pathway to greater success than you can imagine!
