It’s Okay to be a Jerk Today

fridays with veronicaVeronica is my evil twin. And oh my god is she evil! The contents of her Kindle are filthy, filthy, filthy, and her mind isn’t much better. The advice she gives via her Tarot cards is one stop short of crazy, but her intentions are pure. So every Friday I let her go batshit…


The Animal Wisdom Tarot by Dawn Brunke

Today is a good day to act like a sociopath.  At least that’s what I think this card is trying to say.

The Eagle, Guardian of Feathers (aka King of Swords) is here to tell you not to get all emotional and touchy feely about everything. Be cool. Be calm. Detach.

I watched a documentary on eagles last week and those birds are horrible creatures. They don’t give a shit about anyone’s feelings! They push their infant siblings out of the nest and sometimes even eat them alive as soon as they hatch (provided the mama eagle isn’t around).

These giant winged jerks look out for number one. Get in the way of an Eagle and he will pluck your eyes out and won’t even feel a twinge of guilt.

So what can you learn from these airborne psychopaths?

I think Eagle gives us permission to be cool and detached every now and then. Just because you sometimes want to peck the brains and eyes out of your coworkers doesn’t mean you aren’t “spiritual”.

After all, the Eagle is a spiritual symbol. How such a mean bird managed to claim such a high place on the spiritual animal hierarchy is a mystery. Wrens and Robins – perfectly nice birds – are totally looked over.

So let that be a lesson.

In the comments below, tell me which animal you think gets waaaay to much undeserved attention…

    Oh my god, I totally forgot about the eagle being an American patriotic symbol! Even more reason to dislike! Lol! But I think you have an excellent point.

    Wolves! Sheesh, they are like a bad gang. These are NOT cute domesticated doggies–they are bad-ass. 🙁
