Info on the Lunar Eclipse tomorrow night and will blog in a little while..... promise...

August 28: Lunar eclipse in Pisces
Full Moons tend to amp up the emotional life in general and when the full Moon is also a lunar eclipse, the emotions are dialed up even more! Now add in the fact that this lunar eclipse is in Pisces, the most sensitive sign of the zodiac -- and, well, you get the idea. So first, don't overreact to anything; dramatic events are a part of eclipse times, and this one won't be any different. With the Virgo Sun opposite the Pisces Moon, expect to hear about lots of situations having to do with health issues, whether it's people, animals or the planet. Eclipses are highlighters and bring your awareness to what needs your attention. It is time to get a plan together to make the changes that will make you feel healthier, happier and more emotionally content. Get some time alone and slow down! Connect with your spiritual self; watch a sunset, meditate or listen to a beautiful piece of music. What inspires you? It's time to prioritize your dreams.

This full Moon will most affect those born August 26-30, November 25-29, February 22-26, and May 23-27.

A Total Lunar Eclipse is when the Moon passes completely into the Earth's umbral shadow, described as "Totality". Total Lunar Eclipses account for the other 35% of all lunar eclipse. These are the most spectacular type of Lunar Eclipse, as during totality the moon can take on a range of striking colours. Scattered sunlight passes deep through the Earth's atmosphere which filters out most of the blue light. The remaining light renders the Moon in shades of red, orange, yellow and brown - depending on the amount of dust and volcanic ash in the Earth's atmosphere.
All Total Lunar Eclipses start with a Penumbral, followed by a Partial and then the Total Lunar Eclipse. Finally, a Partial followed by a Penumbral completes the event. All types of Lunar Eclipse are completely safe to observe with the unfiltered and unaided eye.
When and Where Can I see it?
