Why Mary is called "the moon"

For this reason she is called "the moon"

that as the moon is between the sun and the earth,
and reflects upon the latter what she receives from the former,
so Mary receives the celestial influences of grace from the divine Son, 

to transfuse them into us who are upon the earth. 

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
