How and When to Use the ๐ŸŒ” Waxing Gibbous Moon Emoji

  • If youโ€™re texting your bestie about how you feel terrible and maybe even cringed out for saying/doing more than you shouldโ€™ve, you can use ๐ŸŒ”. Like, โ€œDude. I feel like throwing up for giving that random colleague of mine so many deets about my private life, ugh ๐ŸŒ”โ€.
  • In a very similar context, you can use ๐ŸŒ” while sharing something that was overdone or said; it can be a fashion post, a political post, a meme, a hilarious incident youโ€™re recalling, etc.
  • On a philosophical level of understanding, ๐ŸŒ” may also signify perfection in the making (the entire moon representing perfection) โ€“ โ€œIโ€™m working on my masterpiece ๐ŸŒ” ~ Jessie J โ€œ.
  • The moon, in this phase, is neither half nor full. So, in the same pattern of usage, you may use ๐ŸŒ” as a way of emoji-fying motivation or the zeal to completeness. For example, โ€œI have enough to begin and enough to endure. All I need now is to get to the top ๐ŸŒ”โ€.
