Unlike a Solar eclipse which happens during the daytime, a Lunar eclipse occurs 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:
Total Lunar Eclipse
This is the most dramatic. The whole Moon is covered by the Earth’s shadow and seems to glow an eerie crimson.
Partial Lunar Eclipse
This eclipse happens when the Earth and the Moon are not quite lined up for total coverage. Lunar eclipses can give you an understanding of your shadow side (your less desirable characteristics) and deep insights into yourself and your life.
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
This type of eclipse cannot be easily seen, are of little focus, and have little impact on either the way the Moon looks or your astrology chart.
