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).

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

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.

If life at work is not all it could be look at the positive side of things as we move into the end of the  month the planet of luck Jupiter will open new doors which you will enjoy opening

Your emotions are probably in a mess in regards to some area of life. It is more than likely a past situation that has brought things up and this will be resolved for your highest good come mid July

Take time out maybe with a trusted friend and figure out what direction you need to follow in your personal life for the best long term outcome .Some times you have to surrender to what seems unreachable.

The Sun in your sign indicates the beginning of your own personal new year.
So with this in mind start the celebrations early .Just make sure the work you have committed to finish is complete. .Put on your party outfit be happy and enjoy your birthday.

You may be involved in a family drama that has you tearing around in anger or hurt. Stop!  Look at what the problems are causing you to feel health wise and then decide to carry on or let go. You should know there is only one choice!

Because everything in life is a lesson and you may need a kind of teacher who can guide you through this period .Look at some one who has stood firm themselves in difficult situations and ask for advice.

The planet of Karma is moving in a positive direction and sorting you out ready for later in the year when you will feel much more relaxed, stuff will get completed so just enjoy the downtime sometimes that’s all you can do 
Jupiter the luck planet is in your money house now for a year .He will bring all sorts of unfinished things to your attention even a  recent disappointment can turn  around in a positive way .Its time to enjoy life in the moment not stressing about what probably never  will happen.

Just watch that temper if things don’t always go the way you planned life is like that
and you need to remember You may not be doing what you planned however you are in the right place so make hay while the sun shines.

This could be the month that it all your hopes can begin to transpire it is entirely up to you how you make it work sp patience should be your key word currently and going forward into the Autumn months life will be calmer..

You will always get back what you put out and just be careful you don’t say to much to another  that can upset your long term plans. Keep your life stress free this year and see the seeds of a better life grow.

You are reputed to be the most sensitive soul of all the signs so this week  so it time to prove it if not to another then to your self .Jupiter sitting in your money area could be from other sources  for the year ahead will bring financial rewards.
