Apparently, a lot of surgeons won't do operations on a full moon because patients bleed a lot more. I also know a lot of cops have sick days when
working nightshift on a full moon because they know it's going to be a "busy" night.
Every time the Moon is in the sky, the WHOLE moon is in the sky, no matter what the phase (no matter how huch of the lit part we can see). A 1/4 Moon
has the same gravitational pull as a full moon.
A new Moon may be invisible to the eye, but it is still all there in the sky, just as it would be if we could see the entire lit part (i.e., when it
is a full moon).
I could understand there being a psychological effect, but I doubt any real physiological effect.
