As the world turns, the moon goes through phases. Each phase refers to how much of the moon's face is in shadow. As the moon moves through these phases it is decribed as either "Waxing" or "Waning." Waxing refers to the moon as is passes from New Moon to Full Moon, while Waning refers to the opposite.
You can check the current moon phase, as well as its percentage, by using the /clock command.

On an interesting side note, the moon's face will change color to the color of the current day as the days change (i.e. on Firesday the moon will turn red and on Windsday the moon will turn green).

Full Moon

The moon phase where the entire face of the moon is illuminated.

When the moon is in this phase, it is rumored that certain effects are improved/degraded:

  • Item drops from monsters increase.
  • Fishing results improve (-4 second on bite rate).
  • Crafting skill ups are improved.
  • The number of High Quality items synthesized is decreased.
  • Gardening yields are higher.
  • Chocobo Digging is more accurate.
