Are you looking for love? If you are, you should be sure to study the lunar cycle before starting the hunt. Depending on when you go on the prowl, you may end up attracting the wrong kind of person. This could especially be true if it is closer to the full moon when things get a little wacky; during that time, you may find yourself in all sorts of strange situations from bickering with colleagues over things like coffee creamer to being on a date that doesn't seem to end.
It isn't just the full moon where you need to take caution. If you're just getting out of a relationship, you don't want to start looking for someone during the waning crescent moon because that is a time of cleansing, be it your ex's old clothes to the mental baggage that taxed your past. And while starting anew can happen during the new moon, it is better to wait until the waxing moon to approach a new someone for a date. Why? Because waxing moons are also known for being the moon of setting intentions.
So based off of our advice, you now know when the best time to strike out for a new romantic adventure is, but do you know what type of guy you'll end up with at the end of the cycle? The only way to find out is to take this quiz!
