How and When to Use the 🌓 First Quarter Moon Emoji

  • Many times, the first quarter of the moon is called the ‘half-moon’, as said in the previous section. So, if you’re using the same concept in daily life, suppose “We don’t know the other half of the story” or something like that, you can use 🌓.
  • Essentially, 🌓 suggests that the other half of the moon and anything else, metaphorically, is hidden. You can also use this emoji while telling your bestie that you don’t know a person or anything else completely.
  • 🌓 can signify half knowledge as well. If you’re sharing a post or a repost that aligns with this kind of knowledge, you can use this emoji in the caption. For instance, “Making headlines without proper research is like screaming that you’re getting married without a ring 🌓”.
  • And lastly, use 🌓 in the caption while posting or reposting pictures/videos of the half-moon or in other words, the first quarter moon.
