The Moon is a celestial object. it is the second-brightest regularly visible celestial object in Earth's sky, after the Sun.
The moon in Greek mythology was ruled by three goddesses: Artemis represented the First Moon, Hecate represented the Dark Side of the Moon, and Selene represented the Full Moon as a whole.
The Moon is the only natural satellite of the Earth, and is the fifth largest satellite in the Solar System. It is the largest natural satellite of a planet in the Solar System relative to the size of the planet around which it revolves. The Earth–Moon system formed as a result of a giant impact: Theia, a Mars-sized body hit the newly formed proto-Earth, blasting material into orbit around it, which eventually accumulated to form the Moon.
The Full Moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun. Full moons are traditionally associated with temporal insomnia, insanity (an association which spawned the words "lunacy" and "lunatic") and various "magical phenomena" such as lycanthropy.
Each of the three represented a different aspect of the moon. Artemis represented the First Moon, Hecate the Dark Side of the Moon, and Selene the Full True Moon.
Selene is among the first in Ancient Greek Myth to inhabit the moon, and is an older and primary source, and, as such she much embodied the biggest brightest aspect of the moon.
When the Moon is full, it can serve many functions. It can be used as a source of power which can be channeled by a witch to fuel complicated and powerful spells.
For werewolves, the Full Moon triggers the painful transformation from man to wolf.
The moon was also thought by those in ancient times to bend, push and pull the tide, it was a symbol of life, peace and water, where as the sun is the opposite and represents fire, chaos and heat.
Moonstones were thought to possess power that came from the moon, and as such, was worn as a symbol of peace and life and protection against death.
In the series, witches are able to channel the power of both the stones and the moon itself to increase their own powers to a scale that is not their own for as long as the full moon is up.
