Lunar Eclipse of 27 July 2018 – The longest Eclipse of the 21st Century
There’s a Lunar Eclipse of 27th July 2018, and this Eclipse is the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100). It’s a Big One. Huge. Some UK newspapers have reported an ‘end of time’ nature for this Moon. It won’t be that, but its effect in our lives, politics and the earth will be great and long-lasting. It’s the longest eclipse for a hundred years, lasting for 1 hour and 43 minutes, and this means its effects will be felt for a long time to come. It will be visible across much of Europe and Asia, and in Australia, southern parts of North America, and South America.In UK/Ireland and elsewhere, this Moon will be a ‘blood moon’ where the moon has a red tinge.

A big eclipse like this 27th July Lunar Eclipse has an earthquake effect. If it interacts strongly with our birth chart, we will experience the eclipse strongly. The effects will be very long-lasting. There will be positive results if we are on course for our true life path. Or, the eclipse consequences will be negative if our life is off-course for its spiritual meaning.
Eclipses deeply polarize and internalise our life issues, and we must face our personal and collective shadows around these issues. If you cling to your false securities and stuck patterns, or resist the call of your evolution now, then these eclipses will leave you at best a robot pursuing a mechanical rump of a non-real life, or your life circumstances will quite possibly disintegrate because you are not living in accord with your truth.
So, July 2018 is a month to stand firm in the midst of what might feel like quite a storm, not
