A total lunar eclipse will be taking place on Friday, July 27 accompanied by a blood moon. This happens about twice a year — and occurs when the moon is completely overtaken by the Earth's shadow. It's no surprise that people are convinced that the natural phenomenon has an effect on people's mood and personality.
According to ABC Science, 40 percent of the general population believes that "the phase of the moon affects human behavior." It's also something most astrologers agree with too, going as far as to differentiate how each zodiac sign is affected by the lunar eclipse. For Aries, expect those buried resentments and frustrations to come pouring out. If you're a Cancer, a sexual attraction can turn into a full-blown relationship thanks to the eclipse landing in Aquarius (duh!).
However, for the most part, the effects of the lunar eclipse are universal.
But first things first.
Will you be able to see the lunar eclipse?
Unfortunately, if you live in North America, chances are you will not be catching a glimpse of the blood moon. Unless you live in Newfoundland, Canada. Everyone else on the planet will get 103 minutes of lunar eclipse glory — the longest of the 21st century — on Friday. However, just because you can't see the lunar eclipse doesn't mean you won't feel its effects.
