Moon phase charts generally show a generic image of the Moon, unrelated to your location. Here is a (free) astronomy program which shows the actual
orientation of the Moon (and everything else in the sky) for any location and time. When you zoom in on the Moon you will see that what you describe
seeing is as it should be. It is quite normal for this time of year.
A handy feature is the ability to display the line of the ecliptic. Doing so helps to understand what you are seeing, if you understand that the
ecliptic represents path of the Sun across the sky. This means that when the ecliptic is close to perpendicular to the horizon, the Moon's terminator
will be close to horizontal.
Tomorrow morning, at Moonrise, you will see what is sometimes called a Cheshire Moon.
So i will continue to look for the website where I & other people posted the last moon looking strange back in July this year.
better to hang out with those who also don't understand how the Moon is illuminated instead with those who might teach you something.
