Horoscopes for Week of July 17th



Allow Cancer’s waters to heal you before we enter Leo season. If you are ready to check out, tired of all the naps, done with the unchecked flow of emotions, I implore you, stay present in it for one more week, the healing potential is worth the discomfort. For all the feels, Cancer is a powerful healer and conjurer. Cancer’s waters can hold immense emotional space for you, and if there is something you are ready to release, something you do not need with you any longer, pause and ask Cancer to take it away in their waters as they leave the spotlight to make room for Leo.

 


NOLA Lore: The Makings of American Voodoo



Each week, J.A. Lloyd will take readers through the secret and unexamined legends, myths, and folklore of New Orleans past. This week, learn about the origins of Voodoo in America.


Louisiana Named One of the Least Energy Expensive States in America


We’re deep in the throes of summer in the city, and one of the best ways to keep cool is sit back and cranked up the AC and cool off with a beverage or two. It goes without saying, however, that beating the heat comes at a cost. According to a new study, Louisiana is one of the best states to live on a budget. 

 


Horoscopes for Week of July 10th



Asteroid Eris, goddess of war, sits on our shoulders and spits fire at our transgressors this week. Eris is associated with wrath and jealousy, but that read is far too basic for this being, whose righteous pettiness started the Trojan War. People may see Eris as the parts of us that cause drama and disarray for ’no reason,’ but Eris is also the part of us that informs others, beyond a shadow of a doubt, “this is what you are NOT going to do.” 

 


Watch: Seth Rogen Eat Hot Wings and Talk NOLA Food


What Clark Gable once was for the romantic epic, Seth Rogen is for the stoner bro-comedy. The actor-producer behind man-child classics like Pineapple Express, This is the End, and the Neighbors franchise dropped by the web series Hot Ones to talk New Orleans food, near-death experiences, and half-million dollar sneakers. 

 


The Man Behind the Plaque

The Life of Lafcadio Hearn



When I was growing up in Japan, I heard the name “Lafcadio Hearn” a lot. My grandfather was a college professor specializing in languages and literature, so it didn’t strike me as odd that I heard so many references to Hearn and his Kwaidan, a collection of Japanese ghost stories (my family was big on stories, and the Japanese have always been big on ghosts), to Hearn and his examination of Asian folk tales in general, to Hearn and his writings about Japanese culture as interpreted for a Western audience.

 


Horoscopes for Week of July 3rd



If there is one thing you do this week leading up to Saturday’s full moon in regal Capricorn, make time to feel yourself. dance in the mirror, post a bomb selfie, masturbate, give yourself a massage…for real, feel yourself.

 

This full moon ain’t no joke and i will get into all of that, but the real magic this moon is offering us is to turn ourselves on to our own power to be the major authorities in our lives. 

 


NOLA Lore: French Quarter Haunts



Each week, J.A. Lloyd will take readers through the secret and unexamined legends, myths, and folklore of New Orleans past. This week, learn the stories behind three haunted Quarter destinations. 

 


Horoscopes for Week of June 26th



Neptune continues to shower us with its magic this week and we have a beautiful opportunity to begin manifesting the work that has come up over the last few days since the new moon in Cancer. Whether you set an intention or not, allow what you feel passionate about and what is on your mind to guide you, your instinct is more on point than any astrologer could be.

Each week, J.A. Lloyd will take readers through the secret and unexamined legends, myths, and folklore of New Orleans past. This week, learn about the Rougarou, the werewolves of France and Louisiana.
