Moon Eclipse and Magic
The night of an eclipse is a perfect time to cast any spells, or to charge crystals or other magical items.
To charge items, let the Moonlight shine on your item. When you wake up in the morning they will be charged and ready for use. This is one of the simplest and most common ways to charge items. Doing it during a full Moon is most effective as it produces the most Moonlight.
