Every one is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody ~ Mark Twain
In heraldry, the moon is emblematic of serenity and serene power over mundane actions. The crescent represents one who hopes of greater glory or one who has been honored by the sovereign.
The waxing crescent moon is symbolic of new beginnings and a call to action. It’s a great time to work toward the goals that are right in front of you.
Extremely popular during the Georgian and Victorian eras, the crescent represented change, cycles, and the ebb and flow of life.
