The moon's gravitational pull has a huge influence on the Earth. For one thing it is responsible for the ocean tides. It takes approx 28 days for the moon to make a complete rotation and it is believed that our menstrual cycles are directly tied in to the lunar cycle. It is also possible that mental stability is affected by the lunar cycle.

Everything has gravity. Even people, animals and dust... However larger items like planets and moons have much more because they are so much larger. When their is a full moon the moon is closest to us so there is a stronger gravitational pull towards it. Because of this the way our brains and sometimes bodies function is altered for about 3 days.
In metaphysical terms this is the moons time of greatest strength. In the weeks building up to the full moon magical beings build in magic/power which caps at the full moon and in the weeks following it their power/magic wains to it's weakest point during the "New Moon" or "Dark Moon." For witches the weeks between the dark moon and the full moon are great for drawing things near or doing blessings where they want goodness to grow. The weeks between the full and dark moon are good for the opposite - banishing and reflection.
