Unicode moon symbols

For several years moon symbols 1F311 to 1F317 have shown correctly as simple graphics. after a Win10 update a month or two ago they changed to 'Emoji' characters, which show as pockmarked disks. These don't show well at all in calendars. After a couple of days they miraculously changed back to simple shapes. Yesterday after another Win10 update they went back to emoji's. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to force them to display as simple graphics? There are workarounds using other shapes but the graphics are of different sizes and do not align well. I use the hex code plus Altx to enter the graphics.
