The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Monday June 28, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 28, 2021:
Water, water everywhere. Four planets in water signs - the Sun in Cancer Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune in Pisces - invite you to shut out the rest of the world today. You may outwardly seem friendly and focused, but inwardly you need to be off on an empty beach, listening to the waves, making art objects, and creating stories of beauty and love. Give yourself time to go to that world. The Piscean Moon and Jupiter connect today and that means you could dream up the very next thing you need to increase abundance or to make your world a better place. In reality, you may need to be in a quiet space or listening to soft music while you work.
Moon in Pisces suggests you wear or use pearls, mother of pearl, or sea shells during meditation. These are tools of the higher vibes of Pisces. Stay away from those that wish to dwell in the lower vibes as their tools of choice are often drugs, alcohol, and victimhood. There's no more time for that in the emerging new world. We're embarking upon a highly creative cosmic journey this week. The issue will be discerning fact or reality from fiction. Turn off the tech tonight, light a candle or two, and ask your guides and angels to speak. Who knows what you may hear! Add slices of cucumber, lemon, and some mint into your drinking water. It will help your body hydrate and detox. The scent of water lily or Ylang-Ylang will draw in the properties of water - peace, love, psychic impressions, and compassion.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Saturday June 26, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 26, 2021:
The Moon now travels through Aquarius and eases the tensions of the last few days. "Rebel against the rules!", is the motto Aquarius likes best. It's a good day to go hunt for antiques or get one of a kind art objects. Pay attention to what's going on around you, however. The Aquarian Moon and Sun in Cancer don't vibrationally match well today.
Moon in Aquarius can cause disruptions in groups today. Family matters can come to a culmination point that can leave everyone feeling uncomfortable. Wear heart centered crystals today - Rose Quartz, Labradorite, Clear Quartz, or Tiger's Eye will help soften the rebellious vibes. The ankles are very vulnerable now. Watch where you step. Be who you are. The world needs you!
Venus enters Leo tonight. This placement is not content with being a sheep or in a relationship that isn't going to work out. *Your intuition know that!* Charm, courage, and concern are this Venus' super powers. She's there until July 21st-22nd. Enjoy her sunny joyous vibes!

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Friday June 25, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 25, 2021:
Making it clear. Moon in Capricorn is often labeled as a taskmaster or a big, huge downer. In reality, it's focus is to blast away all the excuses, fear, and codependency we use to hold ourselves back. In other words, we must own our own beliefs and actions under this lunar influence. Coupled with Uranus, this Moon encourages you to create different results, if you're not happy. There's help, though, as in the Cosmos' ultimate wisdom, Neptune retrogrades today opening the doors to lost dreams and even intuitive messages you didn't listen to the first time. Tonight (USA), the Moon and Neptune meet up to discuss those lost opportunities. Pay close attention to your inner voice this weekend.
Make getting home projects done a high priority. You should be able to breeze through tasks today, but you may be better off working alone. There are some difficult energies lurking below the surface. Others may tap into anger or frustration. Stay the detached observer and don't add to the drama. The vibes of the Capricorn Full Moon are lingering and can cause aches and pains in the body. Take care to eat well and stretch. Azurite will help bring in clarity, while Jet can assist with the body. A massage or alternative therapies can help, also. Take time to assess your situation. Are you creating the 'you' you want to be?
The Cosmos throws in one more surprise this week. Venus moves into Leo this weekend. The heart really gets into the energies and that can create cloudy judgement where others are concerned.

Pinwheel Pizzas!!!!

Pinwheel Pizzas!!!! 

Pizza pinwheels are a super easy, family-friendly lunch or dinner. They're made with soft pizza dough and your favorite toppings rolled up then sliced into rounds. Once they're baked, they become cheesy and delicious bites that your whole family will love.

INGREDIENTS

 
  
  • 1 pizza dough (see notes)
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 3 ½ ounces thinly sliced ham
  • ½ cup pineapple tidbits
  • 10 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • tablespoons minced chives (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

 
 
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  • Form the pizza dough into a rectangluar shape. The backside of an 18"x13" baking sheet works great for this.
  • Spread the pizza sauce over the dough, leaving ½ inch without the sauce at one of the short ends. Add the ham, pineapple, and mozzarella over the sauce.
  • Roll the pizza, starting at the short end with the sauce right to the edge. Use the edge without the sauce to seal the roll, pinching the dough together a little, if necessary.
  • Cut the pizza roll into 8 equal pieces. Place the pieces on a non-stick or parchment paper-lined pan. Bake for 20 minutes, until the pizza dough is cooked. Sprinkle the top with some minced chives, if using.

NOTES

 
This recipe was tested with store-bought pizza dough - the type in a tube that pops open. If you'd like the best dough, use our homemade pizza dough recipe.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Thursday June 24, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 24, 2021:
Dependence vs Independence. Today's Full Moon in Capricorn occurs at 11:40 am (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK). The effects of this Moon will last for a long time as it marks another step into the new world being created. Capricorn is an energy that embodies solid and wise vibrations. They're the adult vibes, if you will. The balance between being independent and in your core or being dependent upon someone, a belief system, or even a power structure will be highlighted. Old structures and hidden agendas are now coming to light for all to see. Stand in awareness and observe what's truly going on. Then, be a catalyst for change by raising your thoughts and actions to the frequencies of love and peace.
On a more mundane level, it's a day to feel good about yourself because you can. Jupiter in Pisces retrograde is helping you to pick up the pieces of forgotten dreams or desires that got lost in the daily shuffle of life. Tonight is perfect for a moondance and for using Azurite - as it helps us shift our points of view and then changes the dynamic energy attached to them. Mugwort, burned as a smudge, brings in change, clarity, and opens up psychic abilities. You are here to help the world shift from fear to love. The Capricorn Full Moon asks for nothing less. Add a few fresh strawberries when you drink the Moon water you set out. Strawberries help reduce inflammation and deliver antioxidants. It's also the Strawberry Full Moon this month. Enjoy!

FULL MOON June 24, 2021

Full Moon June 24
Dates affected - June 22-25
For All Zodiac Signs
The FULL MOON occurs on Thursday, June 24, 2021.
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Cancer forms an opposition to the Moon in Capricorn. The Full Moon is a time of culmination, and the promise of fulfillment started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time, but also a time of romance and emphasis on relationships.
The Full Moon occurs on Thursday, June 24, in the sign of Capricorn, but the build-up of energy the Moon and Sun are putting out until the Moon is perfectly Full starts to affect us on June 22.
This Full Moon is also in a nice aspect to lucky Jupiter, bringing good fortune, luck, and happy experiences. But Full Moon's also reveal the truth and bring out what's been hidden or kept secret, especially this one! Deceptions are often revealed during this time.
This Full Moon also may have a draining effect on some, and you may feel the need to relax or rest, or you just may feel unmotivated. If you happen to be one of those experiencing any challenges, follow your instincts and intuition, and let them direct you on how to handle things.
Also, new friendships can develop during this Full Moon with people of authority or those whom are in power over you in one way or another. These people can help you get on the right path to something successful.
It is a good Full Moon energy to educate yourself and to expand your horizons, especially when it comes to learning and travel.
Mercury's Retrograde cycle is finally over on June 22, so it's a good time to start slowly working on your wishes or plans. But take your time until July 7, as Mercury will still be in its after shadow period of Retrograde. And things can seem even more confusing. Then, slowly but surely, over the next week or so, you'll notice things get moving again.
Starting now, a challenging Astrological aspect between Venus and Pluto occurs. This one can cause some drama in our relationships.
Unfortunately, this influence also can affect our libido, and our desire for affection and sex can be stronger than usual! So we need to be careful this week about making poor choices with partners and lovers.
Any new prospects you meet during this Full Moon may fulfill a desire or a need, but instant gratification may not be so good for your soul! Make sure you check in with your spirit and follow your gut about the people you choose to play with or love! Even if it seems fun, it may be a bad idea.
Also, whatever challenges, drama, or tensions that occurred around June 4, 5, 14, or 15 will finally calm down and can be resolved around July 9. But these issues can crop back up, or a similar problem can occur around Christmas Eve 2021. If you haven't experienced any major problems, then you shouldn't have much to worry about. But suppose you are trying to accomplish something or meet a specific goal. In that case, things could suddenly come together, especially involve real estate, selling or buying property, or making changes professionally, perhaps into something different or new.
Setting Intentions is always helpful during a Full Moon. Write down what you want to let go or release, and take some time to relax and meditate, think about what you'd like to happen in your life next.
When the Full Moon occurs, is when you should be working on Setting Intentions, and taking part in Rituals or energy work to harness the most potent energy of this Full Moon, (the Moon does stay Full for a few days, so you have some time to harness that energy as well.)

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Wednesday June 23, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 23, 2021:
Having fun! One thing the Sagittarian Moon likes to stir up is having fun. If your thoughts aren't aligned with seeing the joy you need to adjust your outlook. And, while Sagittarius promotes travel and far away places, the best place to direct your energies are closer to home. The Cancerian Sun and Jupiter meet up today to help you make creative ideas into realities, especially if they are attached to a home business or redecorating the home you're in. Take advantage of the vibes. Working from home is a good option to ask for if you need to do that. The vibes will increase today as the Full Moon gets nearer. You may find it difficult to rest now.
Moon in Sagittarius - ruled by Jupiter - promotes courage, gaining knowledge, and a sense of self trust. That message will be loud and clear as we move closer to Thursday's Full Moon. Manifestation is a personal responsibility. Learning more about yourself gives you a broader idea of how it works for you. Make a list of all the things you've brought in or completed in your life. See? You know how to draw in desires and goals. It's a good night to turn off the distractions and just be out in the Universe. The Chariot card of Tarot is linked to Cancerian (Sun) energies. It speaks to the desires of the soul and moving towards goals that are closest to your soul. During this moon time try Rhyolite for your crystal workings. It vibes with Sagittarius and assists with past life recall and healing. It helps you grow out of past hurts and into a higher vibe. Sandalwood is always good to keep the environmental vibes happy and positive.

Full Moon in Capricorn June 24, 2021

The Capricorn Full moon on the 24th of June is filled with intensity and transformation. In addition to this being the first Full Moon of the Summer season, this is also an ideal time to really evaluate everything in our lives, both in our inner and outer worlds. This month’s Full Moon is asking us to dive deep in many ways but if we are willing to do the work and really examine what is going on below the surface, there is potential for great manifestation and an energetic shift in the months to come.
The Moon in Capricorn asks us to make a conscious effort to reconnect with our repressed emotions and release them. She gives us permission to feel and express them unapologetically, so we can let go of the burden of carrying them. Once we uncover our unconscious insecurities, they no longer have power upon us and no longer control us. Only then we will be able to connect with our True Self and express it fully.
The presence of retrograde planets at the time of this Full Moon is another strong indicator of the need for introspection and inner work and to consciously come into contact with our True Self. If we reflect on how our past conditioning has influenced our patterns of behavior, we may realize that we unconsciously limit ourselves more than we realize. If you are holding onto past regrets, you may find that this Full Moon brings them to the surface for release. Know you are fully supported to let them go once and for all.
Capricorn invites us to cultivate a strong sense of inner discipline and during this Full Moon we are supported in becoming confident in the direction we choose and in the choices we make. Developing high standards of personal integrity, encourages us to take responsibility for our behaviors, as well as for the energy we put out in the world. As we learn to cultivate a positive and empowering attitude, we become more aware of the importance of taking care of our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
This ambitious Full Moon showers us with an incredible amount of light and power. She invites us to fully release what is weighing us down and to understand what is preventing us from living life to the fullest by encouraging us to celebrate it with confidence and an open heart. The Full Moon in Capricorn is the best chance we get this year to release negative feelings we may have with ourselves and our capabilities. When we develop a healthy relationship with this energy, we easily do what it takes every day to get closer to our goals and dreams. It’s time to reclaim your personal power!

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Tuesday June 22, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 22, 2021:
Pushing ahead. This day has lots of promise, so put on your favorite crystals and scents and get going. First, the Moon enters Sagittarius at 5:55 am (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK). Then Mercury finally goes direct at 3:00 pm. A mental review is in order. How have your beliefs and thoughts changed in the last thirty days? See yourself as a new and improved version. You may encounter a few glitches when doing projects or other work related tasks. Go slow and be forgiving of yourself and others. The Sagittarian Moon doesn't have time to hold pity parties or grudges. Find some joy and then spread it around.
With the Sun now in Cancer some may begin to feel down or needy. You don't have to buy into their drama. Nor do you need to stir up any of your own. Health related issues can be successfully addressed by using alternative health practices. The Moon supports higher vibrational channels of knowledge including those from the unseen. You may find yourself meeting a person who gives you a key to new subject or body of knowledge that will open up your thinking. Romance can be flirty and fun now as the pressure releases from Mercury retrograde. Home projects can be met with new eyes. It's a good day for a good day! Make it your best!!! More change is on the horizon with Thursday's Full Moon in Capricorn. It will be time to celebrate all the changes you've made this year despite the cosmic headwinds. On Friday, Neptune in Pisces goes retrograde. Ideas and dreams that were lost or set aside can be revisited.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Monday June 21, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 21. 2021:
The Sun's energies move away from the frenetic curiosity of Gemini into Cancer. Here, the Sun prefers to play shyly in the background through intuition and instinct. So, over the next thirty days you may find your home base is much more attractive than going to far off places. Your insights are going to be needed by friends and loved ones. With the Moon remaining in Scorpio the need to connect with your inner world is strong today. True desires must be recognized. Work tasks and projects tend to move slowly now as Mercury in Gemini gets ready to go direct tomorrow. Take the day as it comes. Reschedule appointments or meetings if that will work better for the good of the order.
Often, people feel let down or depressed during the Sun's shift into Cancer. Give yourself a few days to move into a more slowed down pace. Be willing to day dream today as Venus in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces send in waves of nostalgia. You may find yourself drawn to rich textures, colors, scents, music, or luxury. The Scorpio Moon has a way of making sure we connect to sensual things or people. Indulge in something good that speaks to your soul. Summer in the Northern Hemisphere is here. It's time to grow through nature and listening to your intution. Energetically, it's a very busy week. The Moon is now moving through the signs about every two days. Be sure to ground your energies now with either Hematite or another stone of your choice. Sandalwood can help bridge the energetic changes.

Mercury Direct!!!!!

Mercury Direct!
After being in retrograde motion since the end of May, Mercury stations direct on the 22nd of June. When Mercury is in retrograde, communication and technology have a greater chance of going awry. Now that Mercury is going direct, stability will start to resume. The energy still feels intense as Mercury is still in a square to Neptune but trust that this all is working in your favour. Life will start to become a little clearer in the following days as Mercury’s post transit shadow period will continue to diminish until its end on the 7th of July. Mercury will be in Gemini until the 11th of July, inspiring friendly communication and stimulating our imagination and thoughts. Embrace the positive energy that starts to flow.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Friday June 18, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 18, 2021:
User friendly. The break we've been waiting for arrives today with the Moon entering Libra at 1:54 am (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK). Together with the Gemini Sun the vibes are great for getting in touch with friends or attending social events. Mars in Leo joins in with a lot of positive energies that will promote good will and teamwork. The Libra Sun works best when conversing with others or doing things as a couple. So, however you choose to spend the day just know that the cosmic pressure has lightened and is more interested in spreading joy.
Projects can begin to see the light of completion now. Mercury will go direct on the 22nd. Hold off on important decisions until then. Since the Sun and Moon are now in air signs you may feel ungrounded and even anxious. Nervous tension can be troublesome. Exercise, getting out in nature, or deep breathing can be helpful to release the anxiety. The lower back can be vulnerable so do physical activities carefully. Random acts of kindness can elevate your mood and help you find joy. Romance can heat up this weekend, but focusing on more superficial activities will work best. There's just too much fun to be had this weekend to be serious!
Blue Topaz promotes a sense of ease and peace which will help cool down today's frenetic air energies. It also aligns with honesty. It symbolizes deep attachment to another, too. Use it today to balance out the hyper vibes. Rose is a friendly scent that sends out good energy to the heart of others.

The Gypsy Homestead "Sowing Seeds" for Friday June 18, 2021

He will make your rough places smooth.
"The valleys will be filled, and the mountains and hills made level. The curves will be straightened, and the rough places made smooth" Luke 3:5, NLT.
You will experience God making your rough places smooth. Every area of your life is being smoothed out by the Spirit of God. You will see a constant provision and flow of His wisdom as you've never seen. Some of His wisdom, you will ask for, and at other times, it will just come to you from those around you without asking. This wisdom will help you make wiser choices that will help to smooth out your life. You've endured hardness, but your life isn't supposed to be hard and rough all of the time. Follow His wisdom and counsel. The Lord wants to make your rough places smooth.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking directly to my heart. You are my God, and no one can do what you do. Some areas of my life have been rough and hard. I receive your wisdom and invite you to come in and smooth out every rough place. Thank you for smoothing it out, Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen.
(Read Isaiah 40:4; Proverbs 13:15)

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Thursday June 17, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 17, 2021:
Sun in Gemini is finishing up his lessons he's been giving us. It's okay to let go of those things that no longer serve you. Jobs, stuff, beliefs, old relationships, social programming, self worth issues - all those things that trip us up need to be released. Moon in Virgo will be happy to create the checklist. This year has the numerical value of five. That signifies we are in the midst of great change. Extra time spent in quiet prayer or contemplation will help you come to terms with what is evolving in your life.
Today's vibes are discordant again as it may seem like Mercury retrograde is messing with messages and schedules. He is. So, find your sense of humor, use Bronzite and Citrus, and relax. It's a day to work on tasks and then go do what you want. Relationships can be at the forefront, especially if there are issues that really need to be addressed. Be kind, but stand your ground. Attend to health questions or issues - with a fair amount of guidance from your intuition. Tonight, turn off the distractions and go outside. Change is in the air. Can you feel it? The Moon enters Libra tomorrow morning. The last days of the Gemini Sun will be harmonious. Enjoy the company of others this weekend. Wear Blue Topaz and Rose. Be at peace.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Wednesday June 16, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 16, 2021:
Let's just say that the Sun and Moon aren't the best of friends today. Sun Gemini could care less about schedules or commitments while the Moon in Virgo has a clipboard and stop watch just waiting for you to get started so you'll "feel" better about yourself. It's best to stay away from self criticism and stay in a higher mind. The vibes are discordant and rather scattered. So, focus on getting done whatever is good for the order. That will create a productive harmony between you and others. Then, do what pleases you most. Once the Sun enters Cancer there will be time to obsess over details.
Thoughts can trip you up today so keep a rein on the inner critic and all that stuff Virgo Moon keeps bringing up. Really. You will be okay and no, you don't have to do it ALL to be worthy. Work with Amber to draw out negativity within the body, emotions, and your space. Citrus scents are a good choice. So is Sandalwood. Give yourself a break tonight and order in. You do deserve to be good to yourself and others. On the otherhand, you can criticize the pizza instead of your own cooking. The Hermit card in Tarot represents Virgo. Give yourself lots of time to work alone or rest over the next two days. When you feel rested, calm, and in your core you will be able to help others.
