Is Free Time the New Taboo?

Meet my evil, Tarot reading twin Veronica! Feeling lost? In need of some good advice? Well, you’ve come to the wrong place. Veronica loves nothing more than telling other people how to live (and ruin) their lives in spectacular fashion. So take her advice. If you dare…

Everyday Witch Tarot

Let’s face it – our society has a perpetual boner for busy-ness and “productivity”.

If you’ve ever heard the ridiculous saying “idle hands are the Devil’s plaything”, you know what I’m talkin’ about. The mainstream loves to demonize down-time.

Why? Because it gives us time and space to realize we’ve been had.

Are you busy? How busy? And most importantly….WHY?

Where is your frantic and repetitive activity taking you? Hopefully not in circles down the drain of existence.

The Eight of Pentacles asks you to take a long, hard, penetrative look at your busy-ness and find the why behind it.

If there’s passion and purpose to all your bustling, that’s wonderful! You’re on your way to sexy success! But if your just “keeping busy” because you fear the social consequences of becoming a full time navel gazer, have a seat and let Veronica talk some sense into you….

It used to be that premarital sex and banging thy neighbour’s wife (or husband) was the filthy taboo du jour, but now it’s enjoying an unstructured moment of goalless serenity that has the pearl clutchers tittering away.

Want to stand out in a crowd and truly shock people? Here’s my formula: the next time some tepid douche asks “keeping busy?” say “NO, not really” and enjoy the moment of awkwardness where they try to hide the fact that they’re harshly judging you. Good times!

  1. Hello again Kate. Did I mention I live alone, I lost my husband of 59years, 12 years ago, ago and being at a loss, I went to a psychic fair, and decided I would like to read Tarot. However it was very hard finding a teacher. So I got a few books, Tarot cards, and have taught my self. I met a very nice person at the fair, and she befriended me. I discovered she was a Shamman , and I have been with her for about five years, and can now Channel, and can read flowers and Tarot. I realised as a child I could ‘see’ things, and was told I was a ‘sensertive’ Did not know what she meant but every spare minute I am back with the Tarot reading, learning, studying , so do not have very much time for anything else. What will your ‘Evil Twin’ think? Blessed Be Freda

  2. Thanks Veronica. Can I ask, does this card message cover Friday only, the weekend or the week ahead?

  3. Love it! Can’t wait for someone to ask me that question and I can just say, No, not really keeping busy! ha ha ha! Life can be good!

  4. Veronica – That’s truth in a capsule as they say: ” Enjoying an unstructured moment of goalless serenity that has the pearl clutchers tittering away.” Goalless serenity should be our new buzz word and not always “being on track” doing and doing!

    Love the play with words!

    1. I love that you love this, Marie Nicole ♥
      And I totally agree – I hate the term “being on track” – everyone I know who’s life is “on track” is totally miserable (from my point of view anyway).

  5. Thanks, Veronica! I watched 4 movies on my day off yesterday! Enjoyed every minute of it!
