This July 27 the skies will host the longest full lunar eclipse of the 21st century! A total lunar eclipse happens with the moon passes into Earth’s shadow. The moon, earth, and sun will all be in alignment – when the moon passes into earth’s shadow at the time of the eclipse, it will turn a deep red, creating a blood moon. As the moon will be at its furthest point from earth this year, it will cast a long deep shadow, which
will cause this eclipse to last close to two hours! If you live in Australia, India, South Africa, the Middle East and the Southern part of Europe, you should be able to view this celestial event.
This will be a powerful energy event – and for those of us who are affected by the moon, it is likely to cause more emotional feelings to rise. Crystals can help you handle with the moons energy with aplomb and connect you to different energies. Here are some of our favorites.
