How and When to Use the ๐ŸŒ“ First Quarter Moon Emoji

  • Many times, the first quarter of the moon is called the โ€˜half-moonโ€™, as said in the previous section. So, if youโ€™re using the same concept in daily life, suppose โ€œWe donโ€™t know the other half of the storyโ€ or something like that, you can use ๐ŸŒ“.
  • Essentially, ๐ŸŒ“ 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 donโ€™t know a person or anything else completely.
  • ๐ŸŒ“ can signify half knowledge as well. If youโ€™re sharing a post or a repost that aligns with this kind of knowledge, you can use this emoji in the caption. For instance, โ€œMaking headlines without proper research is like screaming that youโ€™re getting married without a ring ๐ŸŒ“โ€.
  • And lastly, use ๐ŸŒ“ in the caption while posting or reposting pictures/videos of the half-moon or in other words, the first quarter moon.
