The Moon is half full … or is it half empty? That’s the thing about the Moon … it’s always full but it only shows itself in portions. This is how it works for us in life, as well.
We all know that the Moon has probably the greatest influence on us mere Earthlings, and when it’s half-time, we too are … ‘almost there.’ This is the time for us to start new projects, make new friends, and dream new dreams. The Last Quarter Moon in Cancer instills in us a desire for happiness, wholesome activities, and trustworthy people to join us in our lives.
During this transit, on October 17, 2022, we will find that we are open to meeting new people and that we might just end up starting a new friendship on a day like today.
Sometimes this is what happens towards the end of a year; we are thrust into situations where many people gather, and sometimes, depending on the situation, we may encounter interesting people … some of them interesting enough to pursue further relations with.
This is a ‘friendship’ day and the Last Quarter Moon in Cancer is a friendship transit. It’s hopeful and promising, and who doesn’t want to make new friends?
Whether we are social and outgoing, or whether we are introverted and asocial, we still need friends, and new ones are always such welcome additions to our lives. We’re not concerned with romance today, nor are we thinking about the state of our love life; nope. Today is for making new friends, and for feeling excited about what that friendship may bring us.

New life, new friends. You are starting something new, Gemini. It’s more than likely a work situation … and it pleases you.

You enjoy having someone new in your life, who isn’t automatically pressuring you or telling you what to do. You want this friendship, and should it turn romantic, you will get yourself out of it, fast.
