THIS WEEK - OUTFEST
 July 18th @ FORD
Brits in LA member David W. Ross, wrote and stars in this fully funded kickstarter feature called
"I DO"
and premier's at this years Outfest!
Beautiful urbanites steam up the screen in this romantic drama about a complicated love triangle from filmmaker Glenn Gaylord (EATING OUT 3, LEAVE IT ON THE FLOOR). To stay in the U.S., gay Brit Jack (David W. Ross) convinces his lesbian best friend Ali (Jamie Lynn-Sigler, “The Sopranos”) to marry him. Things get messy when he falls for a sexy Spanish architect while his commitment to his brother's widow (Alicia Witt) complicates his decision either to stay or to follow his lover.


Congrats to Brits Member Adam Wood for his Directorial Accomplishment:
Help him get HITS here!

I did the other week and I highly recommend Zelaikha, It's acupuncture with a mix of Reiki.

disease, not just the symptoms. Her goal is to empower you to a life
path that supports longevity, vitality, immunity, and JOY.

ARIES.
The financial situation for you could be getting a boost as early as mid week arrives
Look for an opportunity to add to your bank account this is the month...It’s a good week for a clean out of what ever part of life needs it.

TAURUS
The sun in your cousin sign of Cancer will bring some stability in any area you need it even if it is only a mind set to turn around. After this month work will be busier
and you will feel more secure.

 GEM
 Your boss Mercury will turn backwards early this coming week so get what ever needs to be completed  that has transpired in your life this past few months. You will be travelling more then normal.

 CAN
Movement is good for you and this week it’s all around you and in the family also.
Be strong and understand you can do what ever you wish the clue is to make sure you don’t hold on to feeling or things that are not positive. Happy Birthday

LEO.
Emotional issues could hold you back from enjoying these next few weeks
So tackle what is to do and make it your priority and spend time relaxing not stressing on what is not possible.

VIR
As this week moves forward fast be sure you are ready and willing to get going on your particular plan for a break away from routine. .If it is a change in work or home this will work well by months end.

LIB
With Mercury going backwards soon in the part of your life that demands you make decisions it’s not easy as you are normally not always in balance. However if you leave things as they are currently you will have to scramble in the end.
 
SCOR
You are ready for action and as this current planet lineup will assists you to complete what is needed you will be dressed and ready to party this week ahead .An interesting person could turn up soon. Be ready to forgive and forget.

SAG,
You could be feeling a bit moody or out of sorts due to Mercury acting up in you area of deep feelings .Know this, what you reap is what you sow and this would be a good time to start thinking positive in all areas and remove any thing or person who is not.

CAP
Your financial situation is still not what you want, however in order to achieve a positive flow of  cash you must be prepared to look at how you think you are .If you are feeling in lack then it will continue and its always a good idea to reevaluate situations sometimes.
AQU
.Its your decision on how you start the coming month .If you want to change any thing as is normal be sure to clear out of your life what is dead wood and leave the space ready to be filled by what you do desire. Its all Ok by months end .

PISC
You may be a bit accident prone this week and next. Take it easy when out and about .
On the up side however if you need extra cash be sure and have a flutter before next week as this a lucky period financially  for you.
