Since the occurrence of the longest Lunar Eclipse has been the talk of the town for a couple of days, we’d like to let you know that the second Blood Moon for this year was sighted last night.
How does the moon turn red? We’ll tell you how.
When a Lunar Eclipse takes place, the Sun, Earth and the Moon are aligned, so the Moon enters the shadow created by the earth. During a total eclipse, the Moon can turn a bright reddish orange color, which is commonly referred to as the Blood Moon.
This time around, during the longest Lunar Eclipse of the century and the second Blood Moon of the year, it was closest Mars has been to Earth in 15 years.
It is believed that the Blood Moon causes mood swings, changes in sleep pattern and hormonal shifts, eventually causing headaches too. Such events may have a certain effect on each zodiac sign.
Here’s how each sign may be affected:
For you, the blood moon and total lunar eclipse will bring a kind of duality that you’re not used to. You could experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, and you’ll struggle to find any middle ground. You’re a natural born leader and after today, you might step into a powerful role.
Taurus folk will experience some downfalls going against their nature. Things could get frustrating if you spent the summer acting on impulse. Be cautious while handling your personal and professional life. Impatience won’t help and try to steer clear of any misunderstandings.

Capricorns will be among the signs that will feel forces beyond themselves pushing them to make a difference during the Blood Moon. Since they are creatures of habit, this will be quite challenging for them. We’d recommend you to try to be comfortable towards the idea of change and being out of control at times.
If you are an Aquarian, you may find yourself on the edge, feeling dramatic or experiencing stress during this period. Astrologers recommend that you take some time out to meditate and allow yourself to sort through the confused feelings you’re experiencing.
