The eclipse takes place at 2.33pm London time, according to my Astrology Diary, so we won't be able to see it with the naked eye in the UK, but we could well feel its influence.
Lunar eclipses are times when emotions run high, when hidden thoughts and feelings can be revealed and unexpected events can take place.
According to astrologers, the alignment of the planet Uranus with the Earth at the time of Saturday's lunar eclipse means that big and unforeseen changes could happen - and not necessarily good changes.
We are certainly living in troubled times at the moment, with European politicians meeting to try to prevent financial collapse and many of us facing difficulties on a personal level. This eclipse of the Long Night's Moon could well herald a nightmare before Christmas.
What is important to remember is that all bad dreams come to an end; dawn breaks and we awake to a new day. Christmas, the Winter Solstice and the return of the sun are just a couple of weeks away. These are things to brighten up the dark days and give us hope for better things in the new year to come.
Notes: Uranus goes direct at 7.04am London time on December 10, the lunar eclipse is at 2.33pm and the full moon is at 2.36pm - although it will appear full on the night of December 9 and 10.
