What do those symbols for phases of the moon mean?

new New moon (dark – usually not visible at all)
1st quarter First quarter
full Full moon (entirely bright)
3rd quarter Last quarter

The actual appearance of the moon in the first and last quarter of the year in the southern hemisphere is opposite of these symbols. However, we currently use these symbols to depict the moon phases for the northern as well as the southern hemisphere.
