The Gypsy Homestead "Sowing Seeds" Friday June 11, 2021
Todays Bible Verse:
Psalms 34:4
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears...
Are you calling for help in a desperate situation? What is certain is that God still hears and responds to our urgent cry. Just as God responded to David, He will also heed our distress signals, remove our fears, and sometimes save us from all adversities...
The Bible invites you and me to cast your burden on the Lord, and He will support you. When we hand over our difficulties to God, we can trust Him and believe that He will provide us with the help we need. We are safe and secure in His mighty hands...
May God Bless You Today!!!

Today's Bible Verse:
"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken."
- Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NLT)

The Gypsy Homestead "Sowing Seeds" for Wednesday
June 9, 2021
Bible Verse of the Day:
Ezekiel 20:49
Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak parables...
This passage reminds us that Ezekiel was offended and disappointed. Many Israelis complained that he could only solve mysteries, so they refused to listen to his message...
No matter how important our ministry or work is, we are always disappointed. God obviously did not agree to Ezekiel's request, but instead gave him another message to preach. What are we disappointed in? Do we want to give up? . We must continue to do what God wants us to do. God promises to reward the faithful. As we serve others, the expected revival will come...
May God Bless You Today!!!
Have a Great Day!

The Gyspy Homestead "Sowing Seeds" for Tuesday June 8, 2021

Divine Rescue

I have come down to rescue them.

Exodus 3: 7-10

After being informed of a 911 call from a concerned citizen, a police officer drove alongside the train tracks, shining his floodlight into the dark until he spotted the vehicle straddling the iron rails. The trooper’s dashboard camera captured the harrowing scene as a train barreled toward the car. “That train was coming fast,” the officer said, “Fifty to eighty miles per hour.” Acting without hesitation, he pulled an unconscious man from the car mere seconds before the train slammed into it.

Scripture reveals God as the One who rescues—often precisely when all seems lost. Trapped in Egypt and withering under suffocating oppression, the Israelites imagined no possibility for escape. In Exodus, however, we find God offering them words resounding with hope: “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt,” He said. “I have heard them crying out . . . and I am concerned about their suffering” (3:7). And God not only saw—God acted. “I have come down to rescue them” (v. 8). God led Israel out of bondage. This was a divine rescue.

God’s rescue of Israel reveals God’s heart—and His power—to help all of us who are in need. He assists those of us who are destined for ruin unless God arrives to save us. Though our situation may be dire or impossible, we can lift our eyes and heart and watch for the One who loves to rescue.

By Winn Collier


God, I’m in real trouble, and if You don’t help me, I don’t see a good ending. Will You help me? Will You rescue me?

Where does all seem lost and where do you need God’s rescue? How can you turn your hope to Him in this dire place?


The book of Exodus describes the culmination of the Israelites’ time in Egypt. They’d been in the land for 430 years (Exodus 12:40) and had become so numerous that the Egyptians decided to treat them harshly to prevent their numbers from increasing (1:6-10). God had made a promise to Abraham to bring his descendants to the land of Canaan (Genesis 15:13-16; 17:8)—“a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exodus 3:17)—and God always keeps His promises. When He appeared to Moses in the burning bush in chapter 3, it was part of His plan unfolding. However, Pharaoh wouldn’t allow the Israelites to go. Chapter 12 describes their final release, but they continued to face many challenges that left them wandering in the wilderness until they finally reached the promised land (see Joshua 3-4).

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Friday June 4, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 4, 2021:
Put that energy to good use. The Aries Moon likes to push for results, but isn't always cognizant of the feelings of others. So, while fun and being in charge beckons be mindful that others need to have input and a part in making decisions. The vibes are cooperative today. The thing you most need to be is yourself - complete with your heart in the right place and a willingness to be helpful. That way, your unique gifts and insights will add to the whole and the merriment that may ensue. Even Saturn approves on this one, so use the vibes as a means to spread the positively around like glitter.
Aries Moon is famous for causing head bumps and headaches. Watch where you're going and let stuff you have no influence over go. Overthinking is the downside of all this good energy. Check in with yourself often. If you need to slow down or ground your energies use Bronzite or Hematite and Frankincense. If you'd rather enhance the vibes then use Citrine and Citrus scents. Romance can be lively and fun. Flirting is an art form during this time. Be honest, though, in your interactions with others. Don't make promises you cannot keep. All in all, let the day's energies carry you from event to event and enjoy yourself. The vibrations are very high at this time. Sleep may be elusive. Be sure to have some down time each day. Deep breathing, meditation, and physical movement will also help to burn off excess energy. That will help with falling and staying asleep.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Thusday June 3, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 3, 2021:
Be kindhearted! The Moon moves into Aries at 10:59 am (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK). At that point the energies will increase and the need to get out of a rut comes to the forefront. The danger with a Sun Gemini and Aries Moon is that you can develop a me first attitude. Harmony and cooperation, rather than ego, will give more pleasing results when dealing with others. Use the forceful vibes to clear out toxic emotions within. Believe in the future and that you have the power to shape it for your highest good. It's a good day to make connections, but leave important decisions for later in the month.
Although Moon in Aries loves a good adventure, other planetary forces are beckoning you to stay close to home. Since Venus is now in Cancer, new home projects are highlighted. Anything you focus on can go well as long as you stay the course and complete the tasks. Enjoy those around you. Have fun, but be true to your values and boundaries.
Use Citrine and Citrus scents to increase joy and positive vibes. Clear Quartz will amplify your intentions. Make sure they are in alignment with your heart. Watch for quirky vibes or situations during this eclipse window. There can be a lot of serendipity, but also a lot of confusion. Clarify the intentions of others before joining in. The Solar Eclipse will happen on June 10th at 19 degrees of Gemini. Try not to overthink, but be aware of new information or ideas.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for June 2, 2021:
Thou shalt not get scattered. Written lists are your friend today while the Moon treks through Pisces. Stay results oriented until you can let down and let go. Then, create a great fantasy, a work of art, or get lost in a novel, movie, meal, or music. We're being hosted by two of the most unfettered energies in the Zodiac right now - Gemini Sun and Pisces Moon. The Moon can get bogged down in the negative, though, so keep your thoughts positive! The simplest things tend to be the beginning of a great adventure of the mind. Or, you can use the vibes to gather information that's useful. Mercury retrograde can cause you to have to redo or replace, so remember that it's best to delay big decisions until after the 22nd, if that's possible.
If you have everything under control, then enjoy the rather whimsical vibes of the Piscean Moon. Don't be surprised if old memories waft back through your thoughts. Be sure to thank those who have been a part of your story in the past. Tonight, the energies support quiet reflection and prayer. Amethyst and Lavender are very helpful today, as Neptune comes to call. Dreams can be prophetic or have messages from the past. Write down what you remember from them for future reference. Tarot or oracle readings can also be insightful. Trust your intuition. Venus enters Cancer at 6:19 am (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK). Small gestures go a long way. Include loved ones when making plans. Don't take perceived slights as you're not wanted. Patience will be a virtue for the next three weeks. As always if you'd like a personal Tarot Reading you can contact me via my website at

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Tuesday June 1, 2021

The Moon enters Pisces at 2:07 am (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK) and tones things down. Both the Gemini Sun and this Moon can lead you down some paths that aren't beneficial to you. So, make the choice to stay present in your now or you'll be off to la-la land chasing whiffs of smoke and mirrors. Put some goals and boundaries on yourself by making that to-do list and sticking to it. Doing that will also help others to stay on task and be productive. Mercury retrograde is causing miscommunications and scheduling difficulties. Give yourself plenty of time to get places or make appointments that you can actually keep. Jupiter gives a boost today that will help you see a bigger picture about reaching your goals. Pay attention to your hunches!
Moon in Pisces and overthinking go hand in hand. It's just because this Moon often feels a little directionless. If you can go for the creativeness you can be more satisfied with your choices now. Music and lyrics can be especially healing now as we feel everything more. Amethyst and Lavender are a good combination to use today. If you want to raise your vibes more use Herkimer Diamonds and Palo Santo. There's a sense of undercurrents or things going on behind the scenes. Be aware of things happening in the outer world.
Mercury in Gemini stays retrograde until June 22nd. Review any contracts or decisions before moving ahead. Venus moves into Cancer tomorrow. Guard against being overly needy while Venus transits this sign.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for May 30, 2021:
Be good to yourself and others! The Moon is now traveling through Aquarius and is much more compatible with Sun in Gemini - for big pictures, big ideas, and easy fun. We're in the Eclipse Season where things can seem strange and out of reach or focus. Keep the faith. The next eclipse is a Solar one on June 10th.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Saturday May 29, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for May 29, 2021:
Mercury in Gemini goes retrograde at 3:34 pm (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK). Be aware that overthinking can trip you up over the next three weeks. Gemini, being an air sign, doesn't always have an off button. You'll need to monitor your own internal conversations and create a balance.
The Moon stays in Capricorn today and that can either slow you way down or help you keep a steady pace to initiate and finish projects. Enjoy the more laid back vibes this weekend. As always if you'd like a personal Tarot Reading you can contact me via my website at

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for May 28, 2021:
Odd travel companions. The Capricorn Moon and Gemini Sun make for strange energies that combine the lightness of being and the heaviness of existence together at the same time. It may be difficult to gage how people are going to react to conversations as Mercury in Gemini is now stationary and about to retrograde on Saturday. Disconcerting news can arrive, but ask your intuition what the real truth is and then listen to that guidance. Draw upon knowledge gained from previous lives, if that helps. Oh, yeah. We're talking 4th and 5th dimensional timelines and beyond. Once Mercury goes retrograde revisiting past decisions can come to the surface. Take the information in stride and keep moving forward in your plans.
Moon in Capricorn can hide shy and often romantic energies just under the surface of your emotions. The words may be hard to say to loved ones, but an approving smile or gesture can go a long way. This evening you may feel like celebrating for the sake of doing something different from your usual routine. So be it! Uplifting scents, such as, Rosemary can keep your spirits high. Use Lavender to lower stress. Tiger's Eye will vibe with both the Lunar and Solar energies today. The weekend will be active, so rest up when you can. Capricorn Moon understands the concept of infinite being, but it too often gets bogged down in the details and forgets to see a big picture. Stay out of the negative side by being true to your word and being present for others.
