Hard work is the new c-word

Veronica is my evil Tarot reading twin. She lives life on her own terms and quite frankly it scares the crap out of me. Drinking before 4pm, seducing men under 25 and reading Tarot like a smutty Harlequin romance. Here’s Veronica…

If you want to regret something, work hard all the time.

There are many unoriginal hacks out there who like to expound the virtues of hard work.

And do you know what I say to that? BO-RING!

Anyone can work hard. Except lazy people.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to tell you to “work smart”…..that’s dumb too!

What I will tell you to do is this: work hard for a brief period of time and then reap the rewards!

Most people can’t do this though. They get addicted to hard work like it’s crack. They feel like they’re being good, useful people when they work hard. Then they can look down their nose at everyone else.

I once worked in a “corporate culture” and one time during an employee engagement meeting, this ass wipe named Colin* was all like “la di da, look how hard I’m working. Ooooh, I’m working so much harder than everyone else. I always give 110%”

I said shut the fuck up Colin. 110% is impossible – it’s a mathematical lie. Don’t be an overachiever, you twat!”

I no longer work there, but my point is this….

There’s nothing wrong with working hard at something you truly love and care about. But for God’s sake, take a tea break and put your feet up and enjoy the fruits of your labor (like The Empress, above).

There is nothing worse than working hard for the sake of hard work.

So tell me….what will you NOT be working hard at this weekend????

Social Etiquette: Veronica style

Veronica is my evil twin/alter ego and queen of Tarot. She has everything I don’t….copious cleavage, hordes of boy toys trailing after her and a hankering for day drinking. The only thing I have in common with her is we both write about Tarot for this blog!

Have you ever found yourself at a dinner party, seated next to someone who just won’t shut the fuck up?

You sit there all polite and quiet, listening to them drone on and on about their gluten sensitivity and talented grandchildren….

All the while resenting every minute and frantically looking for an escape. But they are not your jailer. Your misplaced sense of politeness is.

Then, after an evening of storing up all your anger, you get home to your loving spouse and viciously tear into him for leaving a dirty fork on the counter!

Here’s the thing – your politeness is like money, it isn’t limitless. So don’t go squandering all your nicey niceness on boring people who suck. Save it for those who matter.

Was someone mean to you? Veronica to the rescue!

Veronica is my badass rebel twin sister who doesn’t take it lying down. She writes smut, astral travels, knows how to fly and eats cute boys for breakfast. And oh yeah, she reads Tarot too…

Not sure what’s going on this week (Mercury retrograde?) but the assholes are coming out of the woodwork, sending me mean emails and leaving nasty comments on my blog.

Here’s a sampling of the fan mail I’ve received this week…

“You are a horrible human being. I don’t believe in you or anything you’re selling. Blessed be.”

“You spelled ‘their’ wrong again, you dumb c*nt. It’s ‘their” not ‘they’re’.

And my personal favorite…

“You could have been a hero but instead you are a zero.”

At least that one rhymed!

Maybe you can relate. Maybe you have a “customer service” job where you take crap from people ALL DAY LONG.

Or maybe you’re just sick of mean people being mean.

Do you wanna know what Veronica did? She met up with some friends for coffee, read these mean emails out loud and they all laughed. Oh how they laughed!

So…. I want to know….what was the last ridiculously mean thing someone said to you? Tell me in the comments below and we will have a good laugh about it together 🙂

Reading for April 10 – 16

Well, well, well, if it isn’t my nefarious little kitty up to her usual tricks! This video gets hijacked by my feline friend but luckily she quiets down and wanders off so I can get on with the reading. I am using a new deck – the Wolff’s Cartomancy deck by Bianca Wolff – lots of boobs and naked dudes (my kind of deck!). Enjoy!

Have a wonderful week!

Veronica needs your help!

Sooooo….Veronica totally dropped the ball today. She forgot to do a reading. She was too busy smoking weed and watching ASMR videos on YouTube last night. I know, I know, I’m just as disgusted with her as you are!

So just for some crazy fun, I decided to post a Tarot card and let YOU interpret it like you think Veronica would. So take a deep breath, flex your fingers, saddle up to the keyboard and do your best Veronica impression…

Here is the 6 of Rods (or Wands) from the Anna K Tarot….
