Consumption vs Creativity

Veronica is my Tarot reading twin. She’s just like me except she’s bad, slutty and has way more fun! When she’s in between spa appointments and sex cruises, she’s kind enough to devote her spare time to writing these Friday readings. Enjoy!….

Universal Waite Tarot Deck (U.S. Games Inc)

There are two main things we humans do: consume and create.

Both are valid. Both are important. But if you do only one then you’re up shit creek without a paddle.

I, Veronica, love to consume! I voraciously munch cinnamon buns with my London fog every Sunday afternoon. I love watching artsy fartsy euro porn, listening to grisly true crime podcasts and reading celebrity gossip mags!

But consumption becomes destruction if it isn’t  balanced out with creativity. Your soul withers and your mind becomes numb.

So this weekend, make sure you enjoy the things you consume, but then let them inspire you to create!

Bake some cookies, draw pictures of your cat, build a tree fort or slather your naked body in paint and roll around on a canvas in your backyard.

You get the idea. The sky’s the limit!

So tell me….what 3 things do you love to consume and what 3 things will you create this week?

F*ck astrology! Tell me what you last ate…

Veronica is my evil Tarot reading twin.  Whip wielding anarchist by day, mischevious Tarot queen by night, Veronica is the author of her very own ebook! Let’s see what terrible advice she has for you….

Linestrider Tarot by Siolo Thompson

You are what you eat.

At least that’s what an obnoxious duty teacher once told me when I was ten.

But guess what?

Whatever you last ate….is the secret key to your true personality!

Did you eat….

A cupcake?  – this means you like to destroy beautiful things with your mouth.

Casserole? – you enjoy chaos and mayhem

A wrap? – your a lazy f*ck

A salad? – you think you’re better than everyone. Or, you like salads.

An apple – you give in to temptation way too easily!

Popcorn – you like to keep busy, busy, busy.

A salmon burger – you’re sophisticated but you like to slum it every now and then

I could go on and on…but I’ll stop there.

If you’re food wasn’t listed here, tell me in the comments below and I’ll tell you what it says about you…

The Dark Side…of those “Good” Tarot Cards

Everyone has a dark side. Everything has a dark side.

And Tarot cards are no exception!

Each and every Tarot card has both a light and dark aspect and today I want to focus on the BAD side of those sunny, bright, cheery Tarot cards.

This is a helpful exercise to do when you get a positive card in a negative position in a Tarot spread. Like when you ask “what do I need to let go of?” and you get The Sun or the Ace of Cups.

So let’s get crackin’!

All Tarot cards shown in the above video are from the Dame Darcy Mermaid Tarot

The Sun

Dame Darcy Mermaid Tarot

This is the quintessential “positive” Tarot card and it’s hard to find anything negative about it.

But let me try…

Do you remember back in the mid-2000’s when The Secret came out and everyone was going on and on about positive thinking? To the point where it got really annoying?

Have you ever felt pressured to be more positive?

Or to be extra-super-duper positive even when things were unacceptably horrible?

Like working for a company that treats its staff inhumanely but then demands that you show “team spirit” and enthusiasm and smile all the time. That shit is soul destroying.

This whole discussion makes me think of a great book I read a couple years ago – Bright Sided : How Positive Thinking is Undermining America by Barbara Ehrenreich.

Two of Cups

hanson roberts two of cups

Hanson Roberts Tarot

Two people, clinking glasses and putting their heads together in a glow of mutual appreciation.

What could go wrong? Plenty!

Meeting a like minded individual who shares your values and vision can be intoxicating. But once the thrill fades and you realize that you must also compromisewhat used to be a strong connection might start to feel like a prison sentence.

Sure you might agree on eating vegan, going to yoga retreats and watching George Carlin stand up routines, but then you discover they can’t load a fucking dishwasher properly and love to eat Twizzlers and go to baseball games…god what were you thinking?

Now it’s your turn!

I’ve picked a really uplifting and happy card for you to tear into…the Three of Cups!

I wish there was a secret formula for figuring out the “dark side” of a cheery card, but there isn’t. So you just have to contemplate it and get creative…

Anna K Tarot

Tell me, in the comments below…what do you think this card’s dark traits are? What is the downside of all this celebration and camaraderie?

I can’t wait to hear your pessimism!!!!

Are you Offended?

Veronica is my evil alter ego and co-author of my new workbook Your Alter Ego… Revealed!, a fun, sexy workbook that will change your life! Tarot Reader by day, martini swiller by night, this domineering vixen is here for one reason….to tell you how to live your life.

tarot of pagan cats

Tarot of the Pagan Cats

Have you ever offended anyone?

Sure you have. It’s not hard to do.

The average person is so wound up, just waiting….just waiting….for you to say one wrong word so they can explode in an orgasm of righteous fury!

My good twin Kate is all like “oh no! I didn’t mean to offend anyone” but I’m like “fuck it. I just did you a favor”

The truth of the matter is, most people like being offended. Why? because it makes them feel right. It let’s them feel one up.

And in case your wondering what does all this crap have to do with the three of swords and that pissed off looking white cat? I will tell you…

The Three of Swords is about feeling pain or disgust….and reveling in it.

Like mooning over pictures of your ex after he dumps you. Or writing letters of complaint to companies and institutions (and kind of getting off on it). Or those fluffy cats that make a career out of being cranky.

Getting offended helps people define themselves. It strengthens their sense of self.

So if you accidentally offended someone today, don’t feel bad. You just did them a favor and now they have something to bitch to their friends about!

3 Grade A Ways to Chill Out

Veronica is my evil alter ego and co-author of my new workbook Your Alter Ego… Revealed!, a fun, sexy workbook that will change your life! Tarot Reader by day, martini swiller by night, this domineering vixen is here for one reason….to tell you how to live your life.

Housewives Tarot

Your TV is like an electronic dictator in your own home that distracts and brainwashes you…worse than organized religion and the education system combined!

If you got rid of your TV you would be more creative, free and blissful. Trust me.

But you’re used to TV. You’ve always had one blaring in the background of your life. It’s become a creature comfort, a beacon of familiarity.

Without TV, how can you properly “veg out”? What will you snuggle up to after a long day of smiling and pretending to care?

As a proponent of the leisure and pleasure filled lifestyle, I understand your concern. It’s a valid one. So here are my top 3 TV alternatives for chilling out:

  1. Stick those glow in the dark stars all over your ceiling and lie in a sleeping bag on your floor and stare at them. Booze helps.

2. Set up a hammock in your living room and put on some Reggae. Weed helps.

3. Curl up on the couch with a heating pad and something smutty on your Kindle. Hot chocolate helps.

Okay, now I’m off to watch some shit on Netflix.

Oh shut up. It’s Netflix, not TV. It doesn’t even count!
