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.

Astro Forecast: New Moon in Cancer

Brave Enough to Do the Work of Getting Free



Friday’s New Moon occurs in Cancer at 9:32PM CDT. Cancer calls for compassionate interpersonal connections, room for drama, holding space for our feels, tenderness, honoring our ancestors, and connecting with our intuitions. Cancer is one of the major healers of the zodiac and is one of the major leaders of the zodiac. Things tend to pop off when it comes to Cancer, and this New Moon does not disappoint in that regard.

 


Horosocopes for Week of June 19th



This week we bloom in the abundant daylight of summer solstice. We attune to Mother Nature and her bounty and unite, even if for a moment, with vibrations that call us to shine and be free. It is in Cancer’s amniotic waters that we find the divine power to (re)birth ourselves into the primal perfection that runs deep within us, that perfection we cannot shake even if we try. It is in the sun’s vibrant light we fully let go of winter and step into our most radiant selves.
