Born Under the First Quarter Moon Phase? Here’s Your Lunar Personality

Who here spends way too much time on TikTok watching life and home hacks? Is it just us? We love learning little things that seem to make life easier. You know what they say, “the more you know” and we think that also applies to knowing and understanding yourself and your personality as well!  

Take it one step further than your personality and let’s talk about your lunar personality. Every one of us is born under a Moon, even if you’re born during the day, the Moon is still there in one of its beautiful phases. And guess what? For many, many years humanity has associated certain traits with these phases.

If you don’t already know what phase you were born under then you can use our handy dandy Moon phase calculator to find out! We’ve been working on our lunar personality mini-series for quite some time now, so if your phase isn’t the First Quarter then take a look at what we’ve already covered: Waning Gibbous, Waxing Crescent, Full Moon, Waxing Gibbous, Lunar Eclipse, and New Moon. We’ll get to the rest very soon! 

All about you!

But if you were born under a Moon that was half-illuminated and half dark then this is all about you. The name may throw you off a little because it would seem more logical to call it a half-moon, wouldn’t it? Let’s clarify that because it can get super confusing, basically think of the Moon orbiting around Earth like a baseball diamond. The name refers to the position of the Moon, rather than what we see illuminated. So “first base” would be the First Quarter, the Full Moon would be “second base”, the “third base” would be the Third Quarter when the left side is illuminated not the right and finally the New Moon is the home plate! 

Now that we are all on the same page, let’s get into it. Just like a good workout song, you raise everyone’s spirits. Never has there been a doubt that you have control over your life. You have a very healthy approach and understanding when things don’t go the way you planned, as you are eager to find a way to make it work. The original go-getter, you simply go and you get it. People turn to you for strength and motivation. 


Being such a strong personality, you do run into a little bit of difficulty when it comes to being patient, especially when you have zero control to make something go faster. In those moments you need to sit back and make sure you tone down the drama. Overall, your first quarter babies are full of potential, considered one of the most well-rounded lunar personalities. 


You are eager to learn and to challenge yourself, sometimes you might even scare yourself with your ambition, but you’re definitively the type that is afraid and then does it anyway. When it comes to romantic relationships, you’re a catch, but make sure that you never take those you love for granted. Always check-in and make sure you’re dedicated to continuing to be the best you in your partnership. When it comes to friends, remember to set healthy boundaries, everyone wants to hear your advice and have you around them, they mean well but sometimes it can cross the line without you even knowing it. In the end, your positive vibes are infectious, and you’re a special kind of person, we are so grateful to have all of you!
