In anticipation of the year coming, we offer you detailed insight in how many days will be in 2021, a leap year will be the year of the White Metal Bull and how many days will be coming in February according to the calendar.
Since the previous year 2020 was a leap year, it is obvious that the coming 2021 is not one. It will include 365 days, of which 28 are in the month of February.
The year 2021 will start on Friday and the date will be mystically beautiful-01.01.21, and it will also end on Friday 31.12.21.
The history of the emergence of a leap year
The Julian calendar, which was used for chronology even before Julius Caesar came to power, included only 355 days per year, which led to significant date shifts relative to the seasons of the year. Even the introduction of an additional 13th month, which was added every two years, did not help.
In an effort to get rid of the shortcomings of the old Roman calendar, Julius Caesar reformed the system of chronology, in which there were 365 days a year, and every 4th year an additional 1 day was added to February. So in 45 BC, a leap year appeared, and the calendar itself was called the Julian calendar.
The new Gregorian calendar, which we live by today, was introduced by Gregory XIII (Pope) in 1582, but in America it began to be used only in 1918.
The length of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars differs by only 11 minutes, but because of this, every 128 years the gap between the calendars increases by 1 day.
So, at the time of the start of the transition to the new style, it was 11 days, and in 2021, as we know, it is already 14.
The rules for determining a leap year have also changed in the new chronology system. You can easily find out not only what the year 2021 will be like, but also determine whether a leap year is present or not for any of the previous periods, simply using a simple rule – a leap year will be if:
- the number is a multiple of 400 (2000, 2400, 2800…);
- the number is completely divisible by 4, but it is not divisible by 100 (2020, 2024, 2028, 2032, 2036…).
Important! According to the 2100 rule, the years 2200 and 2300 will not be leap years.
Interesting fact. If you want to calculate the number of days until, for example, may 13, 2021, you will need to consider whether it is a leap year. So, for a year with only 265 days, 143 days will pass until may 13, and in the usual year – 133. But at the same time, from may 13 to its completion in both cases, there are exactly 232 days left.
Leap year astrology
Most people are in a hurry to find out how many days there are in the coming 2021, planning some important events, because there are many beliefs, signs and mystical superstitions about this. So, in a leap year, it is not recommended to enter and start any large-scale projects.
However, in astrology, such periods are often considered as fateful, capable of radically changing a person’s life and often for the better. According to astrologers, any crisis moment in life is a turning point, but where exactly to go, to success or to problems, depends on the person himself.
Based on the above facts, you can easily determine how many days in 2021 (there are 365 of them), which means that the year will not be a leap year, and you can safely implement any ideas:
- plan a wedding or baby’s birth;
- purchase of real estate and a car (including on credit);
- moving up the career ladder or radically changing the type of activity;
- noisy and fun to celebrate any celebrations;
- caroling on Christmas day.
What will 2021 look like?
After a crucial and challenging 2020, the year of the White Metal Bull will bring stability and self-confidence. The symbol of the year is bold, assertive and fearless. He will help those who, despite all obstacles, go to the goal, and will also be supportive of matters of the heart.
You can find out which periods will be successful in 2021 by not only counting the number of days in February on a regular calendar, but also starting from the lunar calendar, which shows the phases of the moon.
Another option is to follow the recommendations of the horoscope. Of course, universal recommendations for a year are too vague. When it comes to choosing a wedding day, planning a family addition, or a very important transaction, it is best to visit an experienced astrologer who will make an individual forecast, taking into account the movement of the planets, possible eclipses, and planetary conjunctions.
