On 27th July 2018, the world will witness the longest lunar eclipse of the century, lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes. It will be visible from 11:54 pm to 4:58 am in the Indian Subcontinent. The last lunar eclipse which was witnessed on 31st January was the ‘Super Blue Blood Moon’, while this time it will be a ‘Red Blue Moon’.
During this eclipse, the moon will turn reddish brown as the sun’s rays passing through the Earth’s atmosphere will get bent and fall on the surface of the moon. Coincidentally, the planet Mars will also appear very large and bright at this time, as it will be the closest to the Earth in 15 years.
Research suggests that this cycle of the moon is highly powerful and can have a huge impact not just on the human body, but also on the 12 signs of the Zodiac. The Red Blood Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse of July 2018 will affect all the Zodiacs in a very powerful way.
