First, The Astronomy of the Eclipse:

Found a link to a live stream for the lunar eclipse tomorrow: July 27-28, 2018: Total Lunar Eclipse

It won't be visible in the USA. The full eclipse will be visible in eastern Africa and eastern Europe, with the final stages visible in western Africa and western Europe. It will be one of the longest total eclipses, spanning almost two hours from start to finish. Unlike the last lunar eclipse that we saw back in January during daylight hours, this one will occur at night. Should be pretty darn cool for those who are lucky enough to see it!

There is a timetable provided at the above link for Mountain Daylight Time (MDT), and a time zone conversion table as well.

Or --


For readers in Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America, all you have to do is go outside at 17:14 Universal time (1:14 pm ET) and look for the moon. That’s when the partial phase of the eclipse starts. The full eclipse begins at 19:30 UTC and then lasts a full hour and 43 minutes! (Check out precisely when the eclipse will occur where you live on TimeandDate.com.)


The longest lunar eclipse of the century will be on July 27
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And now: The Astrology of the Eclipse:

When thinking of an eclipse and its effects on our lives, think "change."

Generally speaking, the astrological meaning of an eclipse is the same as that of the new or full moon... on steroids! Especially where the eclipse is visible from earth. A new moon represents inner work and preparation, and the corresponding full moon represents the outer actions and fulfillment.

Many people tend to fear eclipses, simply because they often bring about a crisis of sorts that leads to a significant event or change. However, this event or change can be very positive.

Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances. However, we are usually the ones to precipitate or to attract changes because our “inner guides” know that we need it. Human beings are progressive by nature, and although we might stay in situations that are making us miserable for longer than we should, deep down inside we know that change is necessary for growth.


Lunations: Eclipses 2018

The eclipse will peak at 4° Aquarius, and will take on special significance for those born with a 3° to 5° natal sun, moon or ascendant in any sign. The specific aspect (number of degrees between their respective signs) will determine the type of significance. A conjunction (same sign/degree) will emphasize the qualities of the sign and house. A sextile aspect (60° separation) will signal an opportunity, but you'll have to work for it. A trine aspect (120°) will signify flowing energies that bring good fortune with little or no effort on your part. A square aspect (90°) will bring challenges, and the need to find compromise. And the opposition (180°) requires balancing.

For a quick read as to how it might affect you according to your Sun Sign:

What The July 2018 Blood Moon Means For You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

If you want to dig a little deeper, you can run your own natal horoscope at Astro.com, but you will need your birth info: Date, place and exact time of birth. If you don't have the time of birth, you can run what's called a Solar Chart, and it will place all your natal planets in their appropriate signs, but cannot provide your Ascendant (rising sign), or house cusps.

Enjoy and brightest blessings!

Hmmmm... quite a statement to make... but incorrect. At the very least, we know that the moon's phases affect our physical bodies in ways similar to how oceans and other bodies of water are affected. And other learned individuals over the centuries would disagree.

Such as Sir Isaac Newton; As he reportedly stated to Sir Halley (of Halley's Comet fame), "Sir, I have studied the matter -- you have not!"

And more recently:

Science Confirms: The Full Moon Does Affect You and Your Health!

A research was conducted which recorded the changes in hormones in the bodies of humans, as well as animals, during the course of many lunar cycles. It was found that there is a direct correlation between the phase of the Moon and the levels of corticosterone and melatonin in our bodies. These hormones have an effect on the reproductive system. Another change was observed in the levels of neurohormones in the brain. Also, unthoughtful decisions on the road are not the only cause for hospital visits during the Full Moon. Problems related to cardiovascular system and cases of acute coronary problems, combined with urine retention, variceal hemorrhage and diarrhea were found to be common causes as well. On a slightly sinister note, the phase of the Moon also might have some effect on people’s criminal, as well as suicidal tendencies.

And there's this peer reviewed published medical study:
Full moon and crime.

The incidence of crimes reported to three police stations in different towns (one rural, one urban, one industrial) was studied to see if it varied with the day of the lunar cycle. The period of the study covered 1978-82. The incidence of crimes committed on full moon days was much higher than on all other days, new moon days, and seventh days after the full moon and new moon. A small peak in the incidence of crimes was observed on new moon days, but this was not significant when compared with crimes committed on other days. The incidence of crimes on equinox and solstice days did not differ significantly from those on other days, suggesting that the sun probably does not influence the incidence of crime. The increased incidence of crimes on full moon days may be due to "human tidal waves" caused by the gravitational pull of the moon.


While I would agree that the effects of the moon and other celestial bodies are not well understood, it's just not accurate to say they have no effect.

Fair enough. My mistake for actually staying focused on the lunation/luminary and not specifically responding to the off-topic response. But good catch on your part!


but such a disengenuous " answer " is wholey in line with the claims of astrology


And ignoring the facts presented for a silly nitpicking argument is wholly in line with skeptics.

Those studies concerning the phases of the Moon and human behavior are known to have various flaws. For example, there is no accounting for an increase in emergency room visits which occurs on weekends during a period when there were a high number of full Moons on weekends. On closer analysis, no link has been found.

Further, there seems to be no discernible link between crime and the moon. Although one study in the early 1970s reported lunar periodicities in homicides, suicides, traffic accidents and assaults, closer inspection of the data revealed flawed statistical methods – the pattern did not hold up to statistical re-evaluation. Since then, an analysis of nearly 5000 crisis center telephone calls has showed no evidence for the lunar effect and less than 1% of variation in call frequency was explained by the lunar cycle. Despite this, crisis center workers reported a greater belief in lunar effects than people working in other jobs, suggesting the lunar effect may be a result of attribution and confirmation bias. Meta-analyses have also failed to find any effect of lunar cycle on homicides or other criminal offences.

Water as we know gets pushed and pulled by the Moon. The water in our bodies too gets affected by the Full Moon.
Utter nonsense, as a slight understanding of how tides work makes obvious.



Also, astrology is bunk.

Okay. Your position is duly noted.

And for anyone and everyone who wants to discuss/debate the merits (or lack thereof) of astrology, I would be happy to respond in any thread devoted to the such.

This OP is not that thread. And it's not what I want or intend to discuss.

So of course any and all skeptics who feel it necessary and appropriate, please feel free to state your case, and your words can stand on their own merit.

Funny you should mention Israel... I've heard this, but I'm not very familiar with the process or logic. But I've been thinking of a friend who was very into the astrology of the Kaballah, which differs somewhat from the astrology I know. He moved to Israel years ago and we lost touch, but I've been thinking of him and wondering what he's seeing for Israel.

It's....just the moon crossing a shadow. Nothing more, nothing less. No offense to you Boad, but this is about as meaningful as trying to say a passing cloud casting a shadow on the ground has earth-shattering meaning.

Meh alright well...I just so happen to know a fair number of people going through significant life changes...pretty much this week...I've got a friend getting a home with her family for the first time in her life in two days, another friend just changed careers a few days ago, i've got a friend in Indonesia who just started a job they've been waiting for for 6 months, that was supposed to start in April, a day ago, another friend in the philipines who quit their job and moved to another province after several years a few days ago, another couple of friends who are moving this weekend from a place they've lived in in the city for ten years now to a small town in the middle of butt# nowhere to bring a change in their lives, someone else I know was told yesterday the property they've lived on for over a decade has been sold to developers.

Yes it is. To ascertain the validity of this topic ALL PARTS OF IT must be valid as well.

Astrology is 50 percent of your topic. Which means half this OP is superstitious nonsense.

Wow! That is a lot of changes all at once, especially so many changes of residence/locations. On the most basic level, the moon rules the home, so it's not unexpected; but it also sounds like they have strong fourth house and/or Cancer connections to the full moon. The career changes probably come from aspects to their natal Midheaven and/or Saturn. Aspects to Jupiter or Venus would indicate they are beneficial changes; aspects to Saturn not so much! Well, if Saturn is involved, the changes may not feel beneficial, but in the final analysis they will be.

In any event, I wish them all the best!

With the updated recent news of the Cascadia EQ concern, the news also going around by tabloids and others is:


MEGA EARTHQUAKE WARNING: Magnitude 7.0 quake predicted as planets align during Blood Moon AN earthquake which could be as strong as a devastating seven on the Richter scale could strike somewhere across the globe this weekend, according to an earthquake predictor.

Source

USGS info on quakes during eclipses:


Earthquakes are equally as likely to occur in the morning or the evening. Many studies in the past have shown no significant correlations between the rate of earthquake occurrence and the semi-diurnal tides when using large earthquake catalogs.

Several recent studies, however, have found a correlation between earth tides (caused by the position of the moon relative to the earth) and some types of earthquakes. One study, for example, concludes that during times of higher earth and ocean tides, such as during times of full or new moon, earthquakes are more likely on shallow thrust faults near the edges of continents and in (underwater) subduction zones. Lunar or solar eclipses represent, of course, special cases of full and new moon, but do not cause any special or different tidal effects from full and new moon.

Mars has been incredibly bright and red the last few nights in the southeastern sky, below left of the moon from Michigan north.

It will still be bright with the lunar eclipse the next couple nights...and easily seen with the naked eye.

Both pretty amazing to see on these clear nights....

The uranus and Pluto aspect of this have me thinking this will have an energetic impact on the market

Sorry to see so many reductionist science zealots shoot down your thread so early who obviously have absolutely no interest in actively discussing the topic

The reductionist are like radical priest or clerics screaming in the town square about the end of the world

God forbid we discuss one of the worlds oldeat forms of SCIENCE

Thank you for the links and information. Very interesting. And a little worrisome!

Apparently the Cascadia fault is a subduction zone, as mentioned in your link: Cascadia subduction zone

The Cascadia subduction zone (also referred to as the Cascadia fault) is a convergent plate boundary that stretches from northern Vancouver Island to Northern California. It is a very long, sloping subduction zone where the Explorer, Juan de Fuca, and Gorda plates move from the west beneath the North American Plate, toward the east.

These dense plates to the west are moving easterly beneath the North American continental plate offshore of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and Northern California. At the same time, the North American Plate is moving in a southwest direction, overriding the oceanic plate. The Cascadia subduction zone is where the two plates meet.


And if I'm reading this right, it would seem that an earthquake from this area may have caused a tsunami in Japan in 1700:

A 1996 study published by seismologist Kenji Satake supplemented the research by Atwater et al. with tsunami evidence across the Pacific.[2] Japanese annals, which have recorded natural disasters since approximately 600 CE,[6] had reports of a sixteen-foot tsunami that struck the coast of Honshu Island during the Genroku.[5][2] Since no earthquake had been observed to produce it, scholars dubbed it an "orphan tsunami."[6] Translating the Japanese calendar, Satake found the incident had taken place around midnight of 27–28 January 1700, ten hours after the earthquake occurred.


It also talks about the volcanoes associated with the fault and has a cool map of the fault line and volcanoes.

I've generally found chicken entrails more reliable, and you don't need any birth information. But we do know how each of us needs to look into these things, how eclipses are known to impact each individual differently.

Yes, Mars has been amazing! Venus was pretty amazing too a couple weeks ago -- due west after sundown.

We got new and better streetlights in our neighborhood a couple months ago, and the light shines totally downward. The difference in seeing the night sky has been incredible!
