The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Friday September 24, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for September 24, 2021:
Breaking up with old habits. The steady influence of the Taurean Moon is rocked today as Uranus in Taurus wants to stop stalling and get out of some mind ruts that have devolved into detriments. For a start, stop devaluing your gifts and yourself. Stop engaging in fear and stop putting off your dreams. The Sun in Libra wants to balance the scales and that includes the one that represents your life. The Cosmos is being kind here and knows that you may need to make changes over time. The big message, though, is to start releasing that which no longer serves. By the New Moon, on October 6th, you may have new goals and horizons to move towards. Mercury in Libra will add himself to the list of retrograde planets on Sunday (USA). We're in the final season of personal revision once this happens.
This "five" year is unique in that the retrograde energies have slowed the processes to the point that it's difficult to see change as an option. Go deep within. Take heart and really get to your essence. As the retrogrades lift the need to work in your truth and purpose will come to the forefront. That's on a deeper level. On a more mundane level you may be restless to serve others or make a difference. Ask yourself what you need today. Protection? Use Onyx, Obsidian, or Bronzite. Clarity? Use Clear Quartz. Or, if you're ready to break up with negative patterns use Azurite Malachite. Use Cinnamon to give your own energies a little fire and push. The vibes are intense, again. Breathe and stay positive! The Moon enters Gemini on Saturday night (USA). Then, the intensity levels should come down a bit. Meanwhile, stay in your truth, enjoy your loved ones and tribe, and find peace.

Crock Pot Cashew Chicken!!!!

The Gypsy Homestead Food-Vibe of the Day:
Crock Pot Cashew Chicken
This is better than most Chinese takeout cashew chicken. Throw it all in the slow cooker and have a delicious, no fuss dinner!
Ingredients:
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thigh tenders or chicken breast tenders
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar (can substitute apple cider vinegar with 1 tsp sugar)
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup cashews
Directions:
Combine flour and pepper in large Ziploc bag. Add chicken. Shake to coat with flour mixture. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken about 2 minutes on each side.
Place chicken in slow cooker. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, sugar, garlic, ginger, and pepper flakes in small bowl; pour over chicken. Cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours. Add cashews and stir. Serve over rice.
***If you like more sauce and want to have some to pour over the chicken and the rice, double the sauce ingredients.
Makes 4-6 servings.
***Cooks NOTE: While checking my cooking process with an hour left, I added about 1/2 cup of water to the sauce which is very thick, gently stirred it in. Worked perfectly, sauce is not quite as spicy and about the consistency of ketchup.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Thursday September 23, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for September 23, 2021:
Slow down. See the beauty. Find the magic. The Moon is now traveling through leisure craving Taurus. With all the energetic changes you may need to give yourself and loved ones some time to adjust and relax. Sun in Libra promotes a sense of togetherness and peace, but it often gets there by being controversial. It's really just curiosity, but many don't like to be put on the spot. Do not push your agenda, today. Try diplomacy, instead, at work, in public, and at home. Rest now so you can socialize over the weekend.
Moon in Taurus affects the throat and the throat chakra. Scratchiness or even laryngitis can be an issue. Make sure that what you say is your truth. Keep your circle small tonight. That way you'll have a better opportunity to feel the vibes. They are more gentle than they were a month ago. The desire to team up with loved ones or your soul tribe will get stronger as the month goes on. For now, take some deep breaths and give gratitude for everything that pleases your soul. Use Ametrine to attune to your natural psychic abilities during the Sun's time in Libra. Tiger's Eye can help you align to your true purpose, especially if you are a Libra. Welcome in the season with spices. Put some Cinnamon in your coffee when you need a boost of confidence.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Wednesday September 22, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for September 22, 2021:
Striking a balance. At 12:21 pm (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK) the Sun enters Libra. It's also the Autumnal Equinox today. Summer fades away and a sense of peace takes over. Libra is ruled by Venus and that heightens our need to see and touch the beauty around us. A need for stability comes to the forefront. Working with others goes well during this time, especially if you actively listen to them. We are still in Full Moon-ish energies because the Moon in Aries is in opposition to the sign of Libra. Use the Moon's bold energies to finish up tasks. As the week goes on welcome the help of others. Combining knowledge or skills can get problems quickly solved.
Even though the Aries Moon can be very self absorbed the planetary energies are starting to stir up romance or the need to be social. Get togethers and social activities are attractive right now. Venus is in Scorpio for a few more weeks. Let her deep energies bring out the passion in you. All things Fall are symbols of this rich time. Spices, pumpkins, and woodsy scents will draw in the Libran sense of nature. Wear or use Black Tourmaline or Citrine to welcome in the new season. Confidence and protection will allow your spiritual side to grow during this time. Tonight, let your heart speak to you. Let it tell you the dreams you've tucked away. Who knows? Perhaps your at the beginning of a great, new adventure! The sign of Libra relates to the Justice card of Tarot. Truth, actions and consequences, and matters of law are highlighted. Also, affairs of the heart can see the light. Decisions to remain or move on can be actualized. Spiritual enlightenment comes your way.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Tuesday September 21, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for September 21, 2021:
The vibes are calling. The power of a mystical Full Moon in Pisces takes on a fiery tone now that the Moon is traveling through Aries. Paths and doorways are open to further your dreams and goals. Take advantage of information or ideas that come your way. Today's planetary positions are quickly speeding things up as Chiron and Saturn promote healing and moving on. If you listen to your intuition you'll know what needs to be released. With six planets currently retrograde change will happen personally and on a very large scale. Be aware.
Take stock of what really calls to your soul today. If you've had to compromise your heart's desires don't give up in them. The Sun enters balance seeking Libra tomorrow, bringing with it the Autumn Equinox. This further breaks down the old structures and prepares us for a more magical and spiritual time. Silence the chatter in your head today. Observe and listen. Find joy in the things others do - even if it's fleeting. It's a night to turn off the distractions and just be. Say goodbye to the passing season. It's been another intense year, but you've passed with flying colors! Many are reporting feeling slightly disconnected or wobbly. The energies are powerful with all of the change they're bringing. Self care is a must right now. Wear Hematite or other grounding stones. Cedar will also add grounding energies. Extra sleep or rest will also help.

Mabon!!!!

 
Mabon Lore ~
Autumn Equinox, around September 21, is the
time of the descent of the Goddess into the
Underworld. With her departure, we see the
decline of nature and the coming of winter.
This is a classic, ancient mythos, seen the
Sumerian myth of Inanna and in the ancient
Greek and Roman legends of Demeter and
Persephone.
In September, we also bid farewell to the
Harvest Lord who was slain at Lammas. He is
the Green Man, seen as the cycle of nature in
the plant kingdom. He is harvested and his
seeds are planted into the Earth so that life
may continue and be more abundant.
Mabon ("Great Son") is a Welsh god. He was a
great hunter with a swift horse and a wonderful
hound. He may have been a mythologized actual leader. He was stolen from his mother, Modron (Great Mother),when he was three nights old, but was eventually rescued by King Arthur (other legends say he was rescued by the Blackbird, the Stag, the Owl, the Eagle, and the Salmon). All along, however, Mabon has
been dwelling, a happy captive, in Modron's
magickal Otherworld -- Madron's womb. Only in
this way can he be reborn. Mabon's light has
been drawn into the Earth, gathering strength
and wisdom enough to become a new seed. In
this sense, Mabon is the masculine counterpart
of Persephone -- the male fertilizing principle
seasonally withdrawn.
Modron corresponds with Demeter.
From the moment of the September Equinox, the Sun's strength diminishes, until the moment of Winter Solstice in December, when the Sun grows stronger and the days once again become longer than the nights.
Symbols celebrating the season include various types of gourd and melons. Stalk can be tied together symbolizing the Harvest Lord and then set in a circle of gourds. A besom can be constructed to symbolize the polarity of male and female. The Harvest Lord is often symbolized by a straw man, whose sacrificial body is burned and its ashes scattered upon the earth. The Harvest Queen, or Kern Baby, is made from the last sheaf of the harvest and bundled by the reapers who proclaim, "We have the Kern!"
The sheaf is dressed in a white frock decorated with colorful ribbons depicting spring, and then hung upon a pole (a phallic fertility symbol).
In Scotland, the last sheaf of harvest is called
the Maiden, and must be cut by the youngest
female in attendance.

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Monday September 20, 2021

The Gypsy Homestead Astro-Vibe for Monday September 20,2021:
Today brings in one of the most mystical times of the year. The Full Moon in Pisces opens doors and illuminates hidden memories or beliefs. Although the Sun in Virgo opposes the dreamy and psychic vibes, it also knows that without these it is impossible to build a plan for the future. Get into the flow of energies today and be like Alice. See the world as a wonderland of joy and opportunities. Jupiter works with the Full Moon to draw in abundance, so believe in yourself, plan your steps, and give gratitude for your journey and the lessons you've learned.
It can a busy day despite the dreamy quality of the vibes. Balance your time between continuing your creativity and spending time communing with your guides and the unseen. Tarot card readings, divination, working with crystals, or psychic impressions can be very enlightening and healing. Venus in Scorpio is reminding us of the magic of this Moon and the upcoming Autumn Equinox that comes on Wednesday. Magic is in the air. Make a commitment to enjoy and utilize the energies this week.
The Full Moon occurs at 4:55 pm (PDT/USA + 8 hrs UK). Celebrate and be at peace with yourself and loved ones. Put a Bay Leaf under your pillow or burn some Mugwort to open up the Piscean energies. Clear Quartz or Moonstone will be perfect tools for the day.

1 lb ground beef or Sausage, browned and drained
2lbs block of Velveeta
2 Chopped Tomatoes and Jalapenos*
7oz Diced, roasted chiles (canned or fresh)
Diced Onions and Peppers (optional)
*you could use 2 cans of Rotel instead, if you like... it's REALLY good. This is just a little more homemade so has a little different flavor 😁
1) Heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute the onion and pepper until it’s lightly brown and soft. Spoon the vegetables into the bottom of the mini crock-pot or dish you will be preparing the dip in.
2) In the same skillet, cook the sausage until browned. Spoon out into the dish with the vegetables (avoid as much of the fat as possible).
3) Cut Velveeta into large cubes and add to the sausage and vegetables. Top with the chopped tomatoes, jalapenos, etc... Cook over LOW heat until the cheese has melted and ingredients are well combined (stir occasionally). Enjoy with tortilla or corn chips!
Enjoy!!!
