Breathe a sigh of relief: The last eclipse of the year is almost here.
The second eclipse of October occurs on Saturday, Oct. 28. Unlike the one on Oct. 14, which was a solar eclipse, this is a lunar eclipse. During lunar eclipses, the full moon — in this case, October's full Hunter Moon — takes on a red hue.
Read on for details about the upcoming lunar eclipse and how it may affect you.

What are the astrological effects of the lunar eclipse?
Astrologers say lunar eclipses shed light on the aspects of our lives that we need to focus on or change. This eclipse is asking us to plant seeds for the future. We are being celestially tasked to create a life for ourselves that is rich and fulfilling. Now is the time to run towards what makes us happiest and where we feel the most loved.
The lunar eclipse in Taurus aspects Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. With all of these planets heavily impacting our emotions, it’ll be hard to see straight — especially since Jupiter opposes Mercury and Mars the same day. This aspect heightens drama and creates gossip. Information will be discovered and secrets will be revealed as the moon empowers us to move towards our fate.
The good news is that the Taurus moon is dependable and reliable, acting as a stabilizing force.
What does the lunar eclipse have in store for your sign?

The lunar eclipse is hitting your chart close to home, making you extremely protective of your personal life and those you care about. Be the mother hen to your close friends and family members, but don’t smother them and let them roam free. Respect their autonomy with a watchful eye.
Gossip in your peer group could get in the way of you being able to connect with acquaintances. Don’t let what people say stand in the way of the opinions you have. Be your own person and make your own decisions when it comes to friendships.
