What about astro photography,do i need calibration profile for example for full moon shots ?

As the Moon is a neutral dark grey, there's no need for a colour profile. You can just use a white balance dropper, or convert the image to monochrome.

In the case of stars, I doubt if very accurate colour is needed.

One more thing...i noticed with my Xrite daylight profile...the reds all always almost magenta red,am i doing something wrong?The rest of the colors are very very accurat,but only the red colors in particular in most of the photos tends to go into magenta.

Some color profiles are far too sensitive to WB on the purple axis. 
Purple is not a spectral color, but a mix of red and blue, that is difficult for sensors to handle.
