There is research branch of biology called "selenobiology" which investigates influence of moon on human physical and mental abilities also known as lunar effect.
Here is a list of several works for example:
- Neumann D. Tidal and lunar rhythms//Biological rhythms Handbook of behavioral neurobiology//Ed. J. Aschoff.-New York, 1981 indexed in US National Library of Medicine
- Tasso I., Miller E. The effects of the full moon on human behavior//J. Psv- chol- 1976.
- Sievers A., Hensel W. Graviperception in plants.- London: Pitman, 1985.
- Lieber A. L. The Lunar effect. Biological tides and human emotions.- New York: Anchor Press, 1978.
While a scientific method used here is completely different than esoteric astrology, still in result there may be found a lot of common things.
Also, Wikipedia article states "lunar effect is frequently called a pseudoscientific theory" and that "some academics claim this persistent belief, with respect to humans, has no basis in fact".
What is a position of Church regarding "lunar effect" theory?
