HAVE YOU TRIED ACUPUNCTURE?
I did the other week and I highly recommend Zelaikha, It's acupuncture with a mix of Reiki.
She was amazing and she also takes health insurance. He had a huge problem with his back last week and she sorted it right out, he woke up the next day with the pain gone. She wants to give Brits in LA members a discount (Aren't we a lucky lot)
Experience the combined benefits of Acupuncture & Reiki to
alleviate tension, stress and pain. Energize and revitalize your
being. As your acupuncturist, Zelaikha treats the root cause of
disease, not just the symptoms. Her goal is to empower you to a life
path that supports longevity, vitality, immunity, and JOY.

Zelaikha is offering Bla members with a special rate of $99 for two healing acupuncture sessions (60% discount). This includes an initial treatment and one follow-up, normally priced at $150 and $100, respectively.

STARS


ARIES.
In any relationship situation you will find that what ever was a problem will begin to ease up as Mars your boss moves forward. He will be in your money area of life and that will be on hold for a week or so.
TAURUS
Your priority should be taking care of you in any area that requires attention. and start with what you know you can handle right now .Be aware that Mercury the planet of all communications will be on your case early next week if you resist.
GEM
The sun in your communication area can bring out a controlling side of you however it also favors getting a handle on any part of life or person that is causing you emotional upset as Mercury your boss continues his backward stroll.
CAN
It’s best to keep a low profile for the rest of the month. The sun moving into Leo next week can and will bring up some old possibly unresolved issues .This is best taken care of with out hesitation .
LEO.
Your health issues or those of someone close is stopping you from participating in life right now it is be Mercury going backwards .Rest and things will pick up in a positive way by the end of the month. Have a Happy Birthday.
VIR
Its time you figured out that your nature is to worry too much sometimes and so with this in mind every time you start to obsess about something you cannot control slap yourself on the wrist. Mercury is doing a job screwing up your communications.
LIB
If you have any thing you need to be working on get it done by month  end as Mercury will hold you back until end of next month and face  he4ad on whatever it is you need to get it sorted before then 

SCOR

This has been a month of coasting through life with out any definite direction for a lot water signs. Mercury moving backwards in Leo is causing you to be or feel low key .This is beyond your control so take the time to clean house .You will know what this means to you!!


 SAG,

Just watch that temper if things don’t always go the way you planned life is an adventure.

and you need to remember that this too shall pass... You may be wondering what’s next for you .Be more aware of the moment not what is yet come.

CAP
August could be the month that life starts to work your way for a change .Only if you stop and smell the flowers of life as you tend to move through life with your head down and your eyes on the end result.
AQU
You will always get back what you put out and so with this in mind keep your thought on your life and where you are heading .This is time to plan a trip. This will give you a different focus that’s good for you for now.
PISC
You are at a crossroads lately No! really this time .You have to make some kind of decision about your feelings in some area so the sooner the better .You don’t need to tell others yet let it settle down first all will be revealed in good time
