Referring to the legend of Princess Celestia banishing her sister to the moon after her sister turns into Nightmare Moon. Can literally be referring to the actual "mare" in the name, who is Princess Luna.
"Mare in the Moon" is also the partial title to the first episode of the first season, "Friendship is Magic - Part 1 (Mare in the Moon)."
This tag implicates moon.
