Depending on your sun sign, Wednesday's lunar eclipse may inspire some dramatic changes.

The longest total lunar eclipse since July 2000 will take place on Wednesday, June 15, and it will occur during June's full moon, starting at 1:24 p.m. EST and lasting until 7 p.m. EST. June Astrology: Don't Expect Relationship Clarity Until Mid-Month

According to Space.com, total lunar eclipses occur when the Earth passes directly between the sun and the moon, casting a deep shadow through which the moon then travels. NASA officials say from Earth, the moon will appear to darken and turn a deep red before returning to normal.

Unfortunately, those of us in North America won't be able to witness the eclipse but those in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Australia will. But just because we won't be able to see it does not mean we—or our relationships—won't be affected. Astrology May 11—June 20: Indulge Your Sensual Side

Eclipses are often associated with increases in volatility and interrupting the status quo, and this particular eclipse is occurring in the same upbeat fire sign of Sagittarius, according to BlogHer. What this means is that "the possibilities of completing or changing things are amped, such as suddenly ending or finishing something that you may have been dithering about for awhile."

According to our friends over at Yahoo! Shine, the lunar eclipse "will highlight people, events and situations to help catapult you into the future." And if you happen to be a Sagittarius or a Gemini, the eclipse will energize the first and seventh house of your signs, highlighting themes of rebirth and relationships where "being true to yourself will be of the utmost importance." If you're not a Sagittarius or Gemini, your sun sign might highlight communication and traveling, friendships or professional goals instead. Relationship Problems? Why Communication Is Not The Issue

Adding to that, MyDaily says this eclipse could also signal you to let go of your past, and "truths that we held dear may begin to crumble or fade as we recognize that a single response or point of view does not answer every question."
