How often are total lunar eclipse cycles?

In general, there are two lunar eclipses and two solar eclipses each year. On average, about half are total and half are partial, so you can expect, over a span of years, to see one total lunar eclipse every other year. There are sometimes cycles of eclipses. In 2014-2015, there will be four sequential total lunar eclipses, with no partial eclipses in between; this cycle is called a "tetrad" and it isn't all that unusual. There will be eight such tetrads in the 21st century; this will be the second tetrad of the century.

Do lunar eclipses happen more that total eclipses?

I assume that by "total eclipse" you mean a solar eclipse. Solar and lunar eclipses occur with about the same frequency. However, when there is a lunar eclipse, the entire world can see it, as opposed to a solar eclipse, when only part of the world can see it. For this reason, lunar eclipses seem more frequent, they both occur with about the same frequency.

There are generally two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses each year. Of the lunar eclipses, about 40% are "total"; the remainder are partial or penumbral. A lunar eclipse is visible from one-half of the Earth's surface. So on average, and weather permitting, you will see a total lunar eclipse about every third year.

Do lunar eclipses occur every 3 years?

Typically, lunar eclipses occur once or twice a year. Because more than half of all lunar eclipses are partial, and because lunar eclipses are visible only from the side of the Earth where the Moon is up, you would generally be able to see a total lunar eclipse every other year or every 3rd year from your location. The rest of the eclipses would be either partial, or not visible from your location. You can check the NASA Eclipse Web Page to see the catalog of all eclipses from 2000 BCE to 3000 AD at the link below.

How many eclipses occure each year?

In an average year, there are two solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses. Generally, half of the solar eclipses are partial or annular, while half of the lunar eclipses are penumbral, so we can - generally - expect one total solar eclipse per year and one total lunar eclipse per year. Some years have more and some have fewer. In 2011, for example, there will be NO solar eclipses at all! The maximum number of solar eclipses in any calendar year is five, which happens once per millennium or so.
