☽ First Quarter Moon

Meaning

First Quarter Moon emoji is the picture of the moon divided directly into two parts — the dark one on the right and the light one on the left. It is a reversed version of First Quarter Moon With Face emoji — and they both are often used in the meanings not related to the moon phases — but to things like balance, dual nature of something, contrasts, the relativity of evil and good and some other exclusively symbolic meanings.

Examples of using

“It’s all about contrast ☽”
“I work day and night ☽”
