On Friday, July 27, we're in for a pretty day... astrologically speaking. A full moon is rising, and although it will look pretty normal here in North America, it's probably not going to give off the same energy as every other full moon. In Asia, Africa, Australia, and parts of Europe and South America, people will see a total lunar eclipse, also known as a blood moon. This blood moon is happening the day after Mercury retrograde begins for the second time this year, and the energy from both of these events is going to mean an emotionally charged weekend for everyone (yes, even those of us who can't see it). Because of that, there are some big decisions you shouldn't make during the blood moon.

Full moons tend to bring out the emotional side in everyone, and they are usually a good time to refresh, recharge, and get a new start. A blood moon, which can only happen during an eclipse, tends to bring about the same energy an eclipse does. An eclipse will usually allow you to examine your life and shed light on certain areas of your life.

It's also important to note that this blood moon is rising in Aquarius, a sign known for wanting to make the world a better place and do some good out there. The only problem is that Aquarius isn't exactly great at handling a lot of emotion ‚ and there will be a lot of emotion! In other words, you're going to be feeling a lot of things, and you're not going to be quite sure about the best way to navigate them.
