Color Rituals & Elemental Magic of the Lunar New Year

Happy Lunar New Year, Parliament Monsters! Though the Gregorian calendar is most commonly used worldwide, the millennia-old Lunar Calendar is still observed for agricultural and astrological purposes in parts of the East. The Lunar New Year (also known as Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival) has been celebrated since the calendar's creation, which can be roughly traced back to the Han Dynasty around 200 B.C.! These celebrations last for days; this year, it starts on February 5th, and ends on February 19th. Basically, it's a whole two week-long witchy moon party, since anyone and everyone is encouraged to participate! When we think of Chinese New Year festivals in the cities, many vividly en

Deeper Into Dreams: Blinding Night

Good afternoon, Parliament Monsters, We're almost to February! Isn't it astounding how quickly the days have passed?

Archetype & Alchemy: A Tarot Reading for Aldor

Happy Wednesday! Today we present you yet another bewitching blog post, this week in the form of Tarot cards. Over centuries, the mystical deck has morphed from early playing card beginnings in France and Italy, into one of today's most powerful tools used in Divination. The Tarot consists of two main parts: the 22 cards of the Major Arcana, and 56 of the Minor Arcana. While the Minor Arcana focuses on everyday choices and decisions that one is presented, the Major Arcana--perhaps the most important and recognizable of the Tarot deck--gives information on a person's archetype, or overall character. These beautifully painted cards have long been rumored to hold future-telling abilities. It is

Deeper Into Dreams: August Prather Is Not Dead Yet

Hi, Parliament Monsters! Today we'll delve back into the realm of dreams—but this time, alongside our authors. Since the dreamworld has always been a source of fantasy, superstition, and emancipation from daily humdrum, it is no wonder a handful of our writers include it in their work. Not all types of dreams occur while we sleep; daydreams help us discover the transformative realization of what we should let go of, in order to move forward. What and whom we wish to become. While two characters share a profound epiphany, author Danielle K. Roux describes what it means to dream beyond one's limits in her excerpt of August Prather Is Not Dead Yet (2018). In a graveyard outside Savannah, August

Manifesting, Moon Power, & Books

Good evening, Parliament Monsters! We start the new year with a Super Wolf Blood Moon—a total lunar eclipse visible to North and South America. The main event is estimated to occur Monday, January 21st at 12:16 a.m. EST. In the days preceding and following the eclipse, the moon will appear much more full. Not nearly as ominous as it sounds, the first full moon of the year was known to draw out hungry wolves. The creatures would emerge from the woods to howl on the outskirts of villages, according to farmer's folklore. The moon has always symbolized an ethereal kind of magic. Moonlight itself seems to have a peculiar effect on us all—ask any physician or floor nurse and they’ll tell you the m
