In the early hours of Saturday (28 July) morning - if you're awake - take a moment to look up at the sky for the longest lunar eclipse of this century.

Yep, we will be treated to a magical deep red blood moon for around 1 hour and 43 minutes.

But while it's obviously a once in a lifetime event and a stunning photo opportunity, the blood moon is also set to mess with our emotions.

Astrologers believe blood moons can affect sleep patterns and cause hormonal shifts, both of which can cause headaches.

The lunar conditions can cause changes in serotonin levels, which is a chemical in our bodies that regulates mood, among other things.

According to Bustle, those with the star sign Aquarius (20 January - 18 February) will be affected the most as the moon and Mars in retrograde are both taking over your sign.

All that aside, if you're wanting to watch the eclipse, these are times it will be happening over our shores ...
