Full moon magick is a powerful time of rites, you will feel the pull of the moon in your body. Living items like your herbs will have drawn their essence into the plant above ground in response to this same pull. The ocean is influenced by the moon, so are our bodies and the bodies of all living things, and the Earth herself.
That is particularly why moon phases are used to do different kinds of magick. Waxing and Waning triggers earthly change in all things, so we also use this timing to our advantage. Roots are stronger when the moon is set as their essence resides most deeply in the earth at this time. Flowering and leafy plants draw the moisture of their essence into the upper plant as the moon influence increases with its rise. Again, the same as the tides of the ocean are stronger and weaker due to influence of the moon. The seasons when the moon is closer to the earth are not what affects earth temperatures, learn more about that and you will know when the best time is to plant or harvest.
Nature is an amazing enigma, but as we learn more about how it affects us individually, and use that knowledge, we gain a power over the things we want.
