Emotional shock and reform.
The total lunar eclipse on Saturday July 28, 2018 at 04°44′ Aquarius will be conjunct Mars. The warrior planet makes this an emotionally altering eclipse. There is a square aspect (90◦ angle) to Uranus which will make the heated emotions more impulsive, but they are diluted to a degree by a soft semi-sextile (30◦) aspect to Saturn. This lunar eclipse will be the longest one in this century, so it is one to not be missed!
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, which is known to be the reformer – it rules revolution, inspiration, and change. With so much compounded energy forcing you to let go of something futile and rapidly embrace all the various new opportunities you have, it's time to trust in the cosmos.
It is interesting that the Full Moon/Eclipse will be at 04°44′, as in numerology "444" relates to practical activity, and inspiring others to plan for the future in a methodical manner. The number 4 relates to the planet Uranus, which like to bring surprises, so having 444 emphasizes the need to not let things get out of control, but to learn to be strategic.
The eclipse is classified as a Total Lunar Eclipse, and will be seen from Melbourne, Australia on 28th July starting at 3:14am, and will reach its maximum coverage (all red) at 6:21am, then will finish at 7:29am.
Change is never easy (unless you have lots of planets in mutable signs!), there will be many pockets energy to understand what is happening during this emotional mayhem of the blood moon. These pockets of understanding will allow you to see where the path you're now moving on leads up to. There is something incredible waiting for you on the precipice of your destiny. The Blood Moon can be equated to a manifestation of a crash – although it is a crash you were always meant to survive and to renew yourself from.
The Moon-Mars conjunction is the strongest influence on the lunar eclipse and will make you feel courageous, sensual and brave. Your quick instincts and fighting spirit can be used to defend your home and family – watch out for the difficulty to control your strong emotions. If you start to feel irritable or impatient, it is a signal that you need to back off and try to relax. You are likely to lose your temper or act irrationally if you stay in an agitated state. If you can’t calm down then try to apply your energy to something or someone you really care about. This could range from cleaning your house to giving a loved one a stimulating massage; these are things that are ruled by Mars and the Moon.
Mars is currently retrograde (meaning the feisty energies are directed within), so there are an excessive amount of sexual tension and frustration which is difficult to express. Mars retrograde means you should think twice before acting. Repeated themes will reinforce which of your strong desires need more background work before being acted upon. These events could be excruciating but are needed so you back off and don’t make a major mistake. You may have struggled with destructive Mars behaviours like anger, rage, violence or sexual manipulation. If so, events will force you to admit you have some anger management issues. This too, could be a very painful experience.
Moon Square Uranus can cause rapid mood swings and impulsive reactions. There can be a feeling to be jumpy and have little patience for anything requiring commitment or focus. Likely to lash out and rebel against anyone who tries to tie you down, Uranus makes it harder to relax because of an unsettling feeling, or anticipation of something new just around the corner. This is not a good lunar eclipse for making sudden changes, especially in close relationships. The natural instinct here will be to run from any emotionally demanding situations.
