Definition of Lunar Eclipse
Unlike a solar eclipse which happens during the daytime, a lunar eclipse happens at night. This is when the Earth’s shadow blocks the Sun’s light from shining on the full Moon.
There are three types of lunar eclipses. A total lunar eclipse is the most dramatic, and this is when the whole Moon is covered by the Earth’s shadow, and seems to glow an eerie crimson.
A partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth and the Moon are not quite lined up for total coverage. Lunar eclipses can bring you an understanding of your shadow side (your less desirable characteristics) and bring you deep insights about yourself and your life.
There’s also a penumbral lunar eclipse, but these are of little focus and have little impact on either the way the Moon looks, or your astrology chart.
