The moon shows up all over this play. Lets look at a few:

Moonlight and sex or lack of sex- Theseus really wants to sleep with his new bride. He accuses of the moon being too slow. The moon is also associated with the virgin goddess (Diana).

Time- Again Theseus complainsthe moon is too slow, hence time moves too slowly. "Another moon: but, O, methinks, how slow

This old moon wanes! she lingers my desires"

The moon is also responsible for wild behaviour and is prominent in the play within the play, Pyramus and Thisbe.
