How The Legendary Full Blood Moon (And Longest Total Lunar Eclipse Of The Century) Affects Each Zodiac Sign On July 27
The Full Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse activates your zodiac sign’s energy, lasting for 6 months. On July 27th – July 28th, 2018, if you step outside to watch, you will witness the longest total lunar eclipse in history.
The Full Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse isn’t just a scientific phenomenon as the longest block of the Sun’s light from the Moon turning its face crimson red. In astrological terms, it’s considered to be transformative, magical, and almost legendary.
It takes place in the South Node of the zodiac and will be visible to nearly every eye in the world. The ‘totality’ of this lunar eclipse will last over 1 hour and 42 minutes, but the entire span of the eclipse itself, from start to finish will last up to 3 hours and 55 minutes.
There won’t be another one like it in over 120 years. What’s causing the Moon to appear red is the shadow of the Earth across the face of the Moon, which scientifically speaking is called the dark umbral shadow, but the Earth will also come between the Moon and Mars.
During this eclipse, Mars is retrograde in the sign of Aquarius and closer to the Earth than usual. In fact, during this lunar eclipse, you’ll be able to see the redness of the planet Mars with your eye, so there will be two red planetary spheres in the night sky for you to enjoy.
Not only will the Blood Moon Lunar eclipse last sign of Aquarius, the Aquarid meteor shower peaks shortly after making flashes of red light as meteors hit the Earth’s hemisphere.
Eclipse season is often followed closely by Biblical prophecy and other religions prophesying that it’s the end of time and there’s a lot of doom and gloom associated with the event. But don’t be afraid. But is there a truth hidden behind the idea that eclipse season will bring about major changes in your life? How are eclipse seasons tied into astrology? It depends on the location that an eclipse takes place, and which planet (yes, the Moon and Sun are called ‘planets’ in astrology) within the zodiac.
This lunar eclipse is followed by the partial solar eclipse that took place earlier this month in the North Node of Leo, and now Mercury is retrograde in Leo; letting go requires an act of courage.
The partial solar eclipse was about getting something, but not something that you can keep. The gift was of the spirit with the intention of waking you up internally so that you can realize something about yourself that you need to let go.
This lunar eclipse takes place in the South Node and is associated with Ketu, which means you have to let go. This is about crisis moments when you realize in order to change, you have to release something that is holding you back. What does it mean for each zodiac sign?
To find out, here is your July 27th-28th, 2018 Full Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aquarius horoscope for all astrology lovers with energy expected to last for up to 6 months after this eclipse season, for all zodiac signs in astrology.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 11th House: friendships
Aries, this lunar eclipse means you have to let go of something related to friendships or business partners. Sometimes you’ve had a tendency to think that you have to give, give, give in order to receive something back in return. Often, this has led you to have empty hands or some type of imbalance — that isn’t right for you. You were meant to learn how to be wealthy and to grow stronger. You are the leader of the zodiac, you know!
So, with that said, this eclipse season will bring relationships in the area of friendships, and specifically business relationships, including coworkers that have provided you with false promises that have left you in tears.
Not to worry. Mars is in retrograde, and so is Mercury, so paperwork reviews will come up, contracts will have flaws that need to be verified. All of this is meant to protect you. As Mars is retrograde, realize this is going to be emotional but relieving as well. The stronger you are on the inside, the more authority you can proclaim on the outside.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 10th House: career/public reputation
Taurus, this lunar eclipse takes place in your career house and with Uranus shaking things up in your first house, are you surprised? This can mean a new change of status, either social or financial. Of course, you will have to work for it. You might find yourself right in the center of a lot of work which will cost you some time, sweat and tears, but this is a wonderful opportunity for you to prove how slow and steady wins the race.
Right now, your ruling planet Venus is working hard in your favor. During this lunar eclipse she’s opposing Mars in retrograde, and this is her way of adding protection to your life in the form of ensuring that beauty will come from what feels like ashes and that all things will come back in wonderful ways. Hard work does pay, dear Bull. But you will have to pay those dues.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 9th House: travel/spiritual awakening
Gemini, you have a wayward spirit about you. There’s the you that you are becoming and the you that is long gone and in the distant past. The problem is finding people who can understand the changes you make all the time and the reason why you’re so dynamic. You will find your people, but it will take an adventure or two for you to do so.
Right now, Mercury, your ruling planet is retrograde in Leo. Happy times for you. You will get some inner work done, and you definitely love to think over the “why” of things. This time, the best subject to investigate is yourself. Why do you do the things that you do? Who do you want to be? You can get the answers in the form of a spiritual awakening over the next 6 months. Lucky you!
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 8th House: letting go
Cancer, earlier this year a lot of focus was placed on both your career and your love life. This has been a challenging time. You may have found a love and thought it was forever, and suddenly saw it leave. You may have been building your home or career and it was growing and now things have stalled. The Moon just left Capricorn, where it isn’t easy to feel your feelings. During this Full Moon eclipse, catch your breath. Not all hope is lost. Instead, learn to let go of what you don’t understand, and embrace your inner courage. You’re strong. You’re worthy, and you are capable. Like the hero who has to face the final enemy, you win the battle in the end. Yours is a wonderful story!
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 7th House: love and partnerships
Leo, it’s your season, dear Lion. What a beautiful time it is. You’ve got Mercury retrograde in your house, the Sun is in its natural element and things are in a positive light. For a while, it’s been difficult. You’ve been working hard to get things into order. But you do like to calculate those moves, and you need to.
This eclipse is taking place in both your love life and your key partnerships. Someone or something will have to go. At first, it may prove a shock to your system, because you love with deep passion, but remember that the king needs a royal court and if the fool has to leave, say goodbye with a glorious wave.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 6th House: health and difficult transitions
Virgo, well, the good news is that there is nothing foreign to you. There’s nothing you aren’t able to handle and there is little left to surprise in this life. You have explored many options since last eclipse season in Leo, and now it’s time for you to see where this all leads. These difficult transitions will come to a head but resolve quickly as you are learning to set boundaries rooted in an honest disclosure of who you are and who you want to be. Personally, I think you will laugh a lot more during this season simply for the reason that your ruling planet, Mercury is retrograde. Your inner wisdom and spiritual insight can clarify now.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 5th House: happiness
Libra, this lunar eclipse takes place in the area of your happiness. Ouch! Not your happiness — why would it do that? It’s actually here to grow your spiritual roots. This might mean you learn to love others during their own hardships as you are designed to do. Mercury is going retrograde in your 11th house, so this could be the catalyst that changes things for you. You might find new ways to do things that take you out of your comfort zone and make you want to do something that you have to put on hold for the sake of loving sacrifice. You may want to plan ahead by doing things that establish a routine or communicate your desires with someone that you love and trust. You may not enjoy this particular transit, but this is a time to strengthen you.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 4th House: family
Scorpio, you love things to have a certain order to them. You’re loyal. You’re fiercely protective, and this all comes down to your passionate spirit. You may decide to make some changes to set things into a new format. You might decide to change your career and it creates changes in your home life. Jupiter is direct in your first house, so good opportunities are starting for you. You may have things that are going on at home, that you realize don’t work anymore and it awakens you to the reality of your future if you don’t improve things now. Right now, with Mercury activating your 10th House, the intensity of things may first show up here. Your zodiac sign is no stranger to reinventing itself, and with Pluto in Capricorn, these changes that take place right now are meant to last, but in a good way.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 3rd House: communication/transportation
Sagittarius, this lunar eclipse takes place in your third house and Mercury is retrograde affecting your 9th House, spiritual lessons, and travel. You may have recently held on to some type of new way of thinking that worked for a while but that you realize now is wrong (for you). This can come to you through conversations with work partners, or it may happen within the home.
Jupiter, your ruling planet is in Scorpio, so this, again, is related to something spiritual. What is holding you back these days? If you’re not sure, now is a great time to develop some type of meditative practice where you allow yourself to empty out your mind to explore your soul. With Saturn in your 2nd House, these changes could add up to stopping some type of financial loss that you feel you keep running into and to allow you find a way to turn the lessons learned into a monetary gain.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 2nd House: possessions
Capricorn, this lunar eclipse is affecting where you have a sensitive spot, money. You definitely don’t like to lose money, so this may mean you will learn to let go of things that absorb your time, energy and resources that provide you with little to no return of investment. Since Saturn is your house and it’s natural habitat, this also means you may find the next 6 months not only affect your internal circumstances, but also you’ll begin to look better, to feel better, and to truly feel more confident and like yourself. When you’re able to control your time and simply say no to what you don’t need, there’s power in that. Why not own it.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 1st House: self
Aquarius, you gain the greatest benefits of all zodiac signs with the lunar eclipse taking place in your first house. Perhaps, the friendships and business relationships you’ve been gaining since the start of this year will carry you through to a new level of belonging and potentially to a new career. You may find your inner strength in ways you had not ever dreamed, but of course, it will first come in the form of loss. What do you think you need? In other words, what are you holding on to that you feel defines you most? Could it be time to adjust to a new way of thinking? Maybe you’ve outgrown that item or practice and you are in a new stage of life where you can modify your current approach to doing things? It can happen. Don’t resist these changes that are good for you. Go with the flow.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Full Moon Blood Lunar eclipse affects your 12th House: spirituality/awakening/unknown enemies
Pisces, this lunar eclipse takes place in the area of your spirituality. You seem to be learning new lessons every day! Did you know that this is part of why you are here? Yes, Pisces is here to learn the lessons of divine, superior love. You are learning, aren’t you? There are times here to pour out your emotions. Have you been bottling something up inside? Time to release. No, you don’t always have to be in control. No, you don’t always have to have it all together. The more you learn to love yourself and your purest emotions right where you are, the greater your light shines for the world to see. With Neptune in retrograde, this is a real tangible moment for you. You can see with clear eyes. The picture of life is bright!
