ARIES
A friend is really not having a good experience in life and needs your support and the sun in your cousin sign Leo will bring you the energy to help. This coming week it’s about family or who you consider such.

TAURUS
You are geared up and ready to get moving and grooving and start the week in good form and energy. Your boss Venus is moving backwards soon so stay mellow.  This time is not for career decisions wait until the end of August.

GEMINI
What can you achieve this week is up to how willing you are to make the right call to the right person on time .Hold off on major decisions until the mid of August as your boss Mercury will assist you then.

CANCER
If you continue to hold on to grudges you will be on the wrong end of the stick
this week in a situation that will require you to keep your temper .The Sun in your money house however is a gift bringer.

LEO
The powerful sun in your own sign is in a good mood this month so you should begin the month finishing of any thing not finished from the whole of the year so far.
Happy Birthday to you.

VIRGO
Any task or job unfinished will be easier to deal with after the 15th of this month. Hopefully you will spare time to relax and play until then. Work picks up nearer September so hang on until then.

LIBRA
Travel is much on your mind and this can make you a bit antsy if you cannot get away right now. The fact is that other things are on your plate so bite the bullet and wait until September. Until then your boss Venus will hold you back a little.

SCORPIO
It’s still heavy going these days, however there is always a reason for anything under the Sun, so it is up to you yourself to discover what is the most important lesson you are learning now .When you decide and you will this month, get going to make the changes.

SAG,
Your boss Jupiter is sitting in your cousin sign Leo  so be good as he will be watching you and hoping you wont act on any impulse that’s not good for you .However all is not totally lost as the sun in your cousin sign Leo this week smiles at you and brings some fun days. .

CAPRICORN
Saturn your boss will be continuing his backward stroll for a while ahead .This will assist you to get the job done. This month is a great opportunity to decide to move in any new direction. In the mean time be seen out and about looking your best.

AQUARIUS
 You are probably feeling like a break away so if you can get out of town go. If you feel nervous it’s due to the very full moon in your own sign this week. and it will complete some things and bring others to your attention It is a rare Blue moon take advantage.

PISCES
Financial situations are   much on your mind and if you learn Rome was not built in a day things will work much easier for you. If some one around you is acting out their drama remember it’s not yours. Do not react to it.

MEET A MEMBER - SHAY HOLLAND

Meet Shay Holland from San Francisco who moved to LA eight years ago to pursue on-camera hosting and acting.

Shay Holland

Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?
A friend's cousin was moving here for a summer job. She asked me to come so I decided to explore TV/film opportunities but never saw myself living here. We took the first place off the Internet that would rent to us sight unseen. That was eight years ago.

What do you miss most from home?
Being on the "A-list!" San Francisco's TV/film community is small so you become friends with agents, CDs, actors. In LA, you almost have to choose friends by where they live; it's a commitment to drive from the coast to Pasadena and vice-versa. I also miss baseball at AT&T Park and fly back for games!

What was your first impression of LA and has it changed since ? If so why ?
Plastic surgeons will never go hungry! San Franciscans wear more turtlenecks than bikinis so there's far fewer enhanced body parts!

What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus San Francisco?
It's way more competitive. In SF, there were only a few black females in my age range and type. Here there's hundreds just like you.

Do you have a hidden gem in LA that you want to share with us?
Inspiration Point in the Santa Monica Mountains. Panoramic views from the city to the ocean.

You can hike or even rent a horse to ride up. It's vital to have a life away from Hollywood - it's easy to get "lost" here.

What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here ? 
Save a TON of money, not just for your move but while you're here. The writers' strike hit after I came. Then the recession. Having a stable day job made the difference between staying and couch-surfing back home.

If your your life was a TV show what would be the theme tune and why?
I'm a military brat, not a city girl, so it would speak to the side of me that's more at home in combat boots than high heels.

Lastly, how can we find out more about you ? 

I help run a group for on-camera and event hosts (Hosts in LA). 
Shay Holland
We have resources, castings and events, though we don't raise as many pints as Brits in LA! Twitter @shayholland

MEET A MEMBER - LIZ STERLING

Meet a Member -Liz Sterling




Meet Liz Stirling from Glasgow who moved to LA 9 years ago to pursue the world of TV Producing and Fixing.

Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?
After years traveling to LA producing and directing for the BBC I realized there was a gap in the market here supporting UK productions; it was always my dream to start Volt MediaFix in LA so when the opportunity came to leave the Beeb in 2006, I pitched a documentary “Paolo Nutini Takes On America” and low and behold, they commissioned it, the rest is history…

What do you miss most from home?
I mostly miss my Mum, the production values of British TV and the BBC iPlayer.

What was your first impression of LA and has it changed since ? If so why ?
My first experience of LA as a journalist in 1999 left me thinking it wasn’t a real city, not like London or Edinburgh or Liverpool. Later I realized I had to be more open minded, and that all cities aren’t built the same way. LA is home now and I love it.

What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus Glasgow ?
The biggest difference living in LA versus living in Glasgow is, in LA being different is embraced, not alienated.

Do you have any hidden gems in LA that you want to share with us?
Forget Runyon Canyon, the Los Liones trail to Parker Mesa in the Santa Monica mountains is breathtaking, just remember to take your phone, so you can capture the view when you get to the top.

A lot of people have misconceptions about LA - did you ?
Like most Brits, I thought LA would be full of rude, self-absorbed people but it’s all about who you surround yourself with and it takes time to make true friends. LA life is an adventure that enriches those who embrace it.

What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here ? 
Save as much money as possible, you’re starting all over again, it takes time to get back to level of your career you were at in the UK but if you’re good at what you do, once you get a foot in the door, you’ll fly. 

If your life was a TV show what would be the theme tune and why?
If my life was a TV show the theme tune would be The Stone Roses “Love Spreads” because everyone knows I’m a bit of a rock chick and very forgiving…

Lastly , how can we find out more about you ?

MEET A MEMBER - BETTINA BRIGHTON

Meet Bettina Brighton from London who moved to LA 3 years ago.



Was there a particular reason you chose LA ?

I have always been fascinated with LA, it is magical.
What do you miss most from home?
I feel LA is my home now. I miss hearing the word "Reem" in a sentence.. I also miss being able to use British Sign Language as American Sign Language is different…
And of course family 

What was your first impression of LA and has it changed since ? If so why ?
I have always loved LA and I still do!

What do you find the biggest difference is living here versus London
I find that the unexpected happens a lot more here.. and lots more Vegan food restaurants which is great!
Visit Yelp for a great list of Vegan restaurants in LA

Do you have any hidden gems in LA that you want to share with us?
Yes the amazing place that I do yoga and meditation  
www.ninetreasuresyoga.com on Sunset Boulevard
Nine Treasures Yoga founder Tej Kaur Khalsa
Also Babacar's African Braids the salon were I got my braids done! He is excellent! p.s  they cater for all different hairstyles and will make you look sexy!
www.babacarsafricanbraids.com
Also any event were the handsum Sandro Monetti is pondering .. as he is a bit of a gem!
Miserable Lesbians Live Show

A lot of people have misconceptions about LA - did you ?
I thought it would great and it is ;)

What would you suggest to others who are thinking about making the move here ?
Think positive and figure out how to make it happen! 

If your your life was a TV show what would be the theme tune and why?
TV show "Absolutely Fabulous" of course and theme tune would be "Boozey in the Jacuzzi" which is the song I produced which will soon be released on iTunes.. but you can have a sneaky listen to it here..
And why my theme tune- just because I like to have a cheeky giggle! lol

Lastly , how can we find out more about you ?  
Just invite me out for a cuppa tea.
