Striving for Balance? Don’t Bother! ~ Tarot Card for Friday

fridays with veronicaVeronica is the Daily Tarot Girl’s evil twin. She spends her time penning smut, sipping martinis, and planning her next seduction. Let us read what she has to say about the Six of Pentacles…

Today we have the Six of Pentacles (again!) and it appears that “balance” is what it’s all about. But don’t be fooled. Striving for balance is overrated.

Contrary to popular belief, imbalance is the natural state of affairs. Think of a pair of testicles. One must always hang lower than the other, lest they be squished together during the act of walking (moving forward).

And this is how you need to start thinking of your life – like a pair of testicles. Stop striving for perfect balance.

You hear a lot about “balance” these days – about eating a balanced diet, about living a balanced life, balance, balance, balance! And its all bullshit.

Striving for perfect balance is useless and, in my humble opinion, totally unnatural. But here’s the funny thing – if you just do what you feel, eventually things even out and balance themselves.

For example, yesterday I spent an entire day lying on my couch, reading Scandalous Liaisons by Sylvia Day, eating peanut butter-cornflake squares and drinking syrupy, German white wine.

But today I am just humming along with my work like a skanky ferrari, getting shit done, eating my greens and doing yoga.

So stop striving and just go with the fucking flow already!

  1. I’ve been saying this for years (about balance, not about nuts.) and everyone thinks I’m crazy. Thank you Veronica for that affirmation. 🙂

  2. I don’t think there’s anywhere more FUN on the ‘net on Fridays than this joint with Veronica and all her friends!

    V. I had NO IDEA about the low-hanging nut. It’s both enlightening AND a perfect metaphor for natural balance, rather than the strangling-Spandex version we’re told to aim for.

    Today, I will be a low-hanging nut. Tomorrow, perhaps I’ll try to climb up higher on the vine.

    Hugs to you, my wise and wild friend.

  3. LOL! I so love your interpretation of the 6 of Pentacles! “Think of your life as a pair of testicles!” Too funny but so damn true! I cannot stop laughing! Thank you so much for this light-hearted (and very funny) take on the mundane! Perfect for my life right now!

  4. Lady V, Its Cold You See, And Why Yer Tits Point To Me
    The Six Of Circles Or Pent-Ah-Clees Is Why My Nuts Are At My Knees
    They Balance All Including Sea(men) And Give Us Juice Instead Of Pee
    The Former Is For Reproduction, And Make Good Use Of Your Sweet Suction
    So The Bag Of Life Has Two Nuggets, One For You And One For Me
    And There It Waits For Some Epic Fuckin’

    I Can’t Get Over How Timely Your Readings Are.
    I Was Just Writing For My Latest Production ( My Left Nut )
    So This Just Rolled Off My Tongue, Sperm Of The Moment, You Might Say

    So I Send This With Love And Piece ( A Piece Of Yer Ass Would Be Nice! )


    P.S. I Had More Lines Of Prose, But It Started To Get Vulva ( Vulgar )

    1. Wow – that’s quite the limpdick. I mean limerick! Actually it isn’t technically a limerick, I just wanted to say “limpdick”. hee hee.

  5. A after recovering from the shock of learning that Veronica has a “humble opinion,” I ran to the bar to gather the needed supplies to survive: Canadian Rye and a shot glass. To contemplate through the amber mirror appropriately the new state of affairs,.

    In the old days, when pants were tighter, a good tailor would ask, ” to what side does the gentleman dress?” because one does hang only lower than the other, dear Mistress Veronica, they also have a side preference.

    May your yoga be followed by a wonderful tray of pastries, and Ricard,

  6. Veronica,
    I love your f*** it attitude!
    Your frank advice and use of adjectives just make my day.
    Have a fabulous one!

  7. I quite like this evil twin of yours, someday’s evil intent is just what the world gives us to move forward. I always read 6 of coins differently to your idea, so thanks for the new outlook. BTW…its actually called Peanut Paste, not butter, butter is made from milk, hows that for evil balance.

    1. Peanut PASTE?! I have never heard that term before. I think I like the sound of peanut butter better – paste sounds like glue! Glad you enjoy my evil twin 🙂

  8. Yay! go with the flow is my theme fore this month. You are so right it feels relaxed. I don’t have to be on top of it all the time to get things done. There is always another day 😀
