Veronica’s advice: Skip the babyshower and go to Vegas

fridays with veronica
Veronica Noir, my evil counterpart, is too busy lounging on a yacht in the Hawaiian Islands – surrounded by glistening boy-toys –  to write today’s reading. So I’ve taken an old reading from a year ago and I’m totally recycling it. God, what would Veronica think? She hates people who recycle.

the world 2

You are a multifaceted creature – never forget it! That is what The World is sayin’ to me today.

There are many different aspects to your personality and who you are, so don’t let yourself get pigeonholed into any silly “roles” or “personas” – the world is wide open!

Lets take a gander at this card, shall we? The naked lady in the center is dancing inside an ovally, egg shaped space – and if that’s not blatant vagina symbolism, well then I don’t know what is! And she grasps a phallic object in each hand (lucky bitch).

There is something wonderfully hermaphroditic about The World and its message is that you must be both receptive and active in order to truly be Queen (or King) of your surroundings.

Make a to-do list AND meditate. Let go of trying to control everything AND make a plan of action. Say YES to things that make you feel open and free (like a trip to Vegas!) and NO to things that make you want to crawl back in bed (like a friend’s boring baby-shower).

You get the idea! Open yourself to the world by opening up to all aspects of yourself without judgement.

Because I am nosy, I want to know…how will you be expressing your “masculine” and “feminine” sides this weekend? Tell me in the comments below!

Quiz: How Psychic Are You?

Guess what? YOU are psychic! How do I know? Well, because everyone is…..to one degree or another.

Like hearing or eyesight, we all have a “sixth sense” which is our intuition, or our “gut instincts”.

Some of us are more in touch with it than others and some of us may be more naturally intuitive. But we are all intuitive/psychic.

I know this is kind of like saying “everyone’s special in their own way”, but stay with me…

We are all capable of moving our bodies (unless your completely paralyzed) and yet only a few of us will become Olympic athletes. Some of us exercise regularly for health reasons, some of us sit on the couch all day watching Vampire Diaries and some of us may train relentlessly for a particular sport.

Psychic ability is the same kind of thing. We all have it but what we choose to do with it is up to us.

However, some of us just have more of a natural inclination or interest in psychic stuff. Chances are, if you’re reading this, you have what I call a “psychic personality.” Read on to see if this is you…


Part 1: How psychic are you?

1) You’re at a crowded festival and find yourself fantasizing about:

a) Leaving early so you can curl up on your couch with a good book

b) Hoping up on stage for an impromptu performance. You LOVE being the center of attention!

c) You’re not fantasizing about anything. You’re just enjoying blending into the crowd, people watching and soaking it all in.


2) The phone rings and you know it’s your old high school boyfriend because:

a) You just have this “feeling” it’s him

b) You just ran into him yesterday and he said he’d call you today. Plus, you have caller ID.

c) You’ve been having tons of weird dreams about him lately


 3) When you meet someone for the first time, you usually:

a) Get a pretty good sense of who they are as a person – your first impressions are rarely wrong

b) Notice the brands of clothing they’re wearing and the yellow stains on their teeth

c) Get a sudden image of them 20 years into the future –  CEO of a financial institution, balding with a gut and getting a lap dance from an underage stripper while their wife stays at home with their two children.


4) You’re on vacation and the resort your staying at is offering 3 different workshops. The one that appeals most to you is:

a) Communicating with your Higher Self

b) Surfing

c) Painting from the Soul


Okay, great! Your done the first section on the quiz. Look at your answers – if you chose mostly a’s and c’s, you have what I call a “psychic personality” – you tend to be more introverted than extraverted, are fairly in touch with your intuition and feel drawn to learn more about it.

If you chose mostly b’s, you probably couldn’t care less about “intuition” or “psychic senses” and have no idea why you are even doing this lame quiz! Your psychic ability is more latent. You may chose to work with it later in life or not at all – and that’s okay.


Part 2: Can you trust your intuition?

1) You’ve made plans to go for a picnic with a friend. You get a strong feeling the day before that you should postpone the picnic and stay home instead. So of course you:

a) Dismiss this as silly paranoia and stick to your original plans – there is no logical reason why you shouldn’t go on the picnic!

b) Listen to your gut feeling and reschedule the picnic for next week


2) You have to choose between two fabulous job offers – waitressing at the Playboy mansion or being a human rights lawyer. How do you decide?

a) Draw up a list of pros and cons for each job and then phone your best friend and ask for her advice

b) Do some journalling, take lots of long walks, meditate and ask your higher self for guidance



3) You meet a really hot guy (or girl) through an online dating site. You get bad vibes right away, despite their good looks and charming personality. Do you:

a) Get mad at yourself and think “for heaven’s sake, this person has been nothing but nice to me, I’m such a terrible person for feeling this way”. Plus your really bored and lonely, and nobody’s perfect, right?

b) Enjoy some polite conversation but keep your distance, don’t give out any personal information and decline a second date. Sure they’re hot, but you don’t want to end up in pieces in their freezer!

Okay, tally up your answers.

If you got mostly a’s, this shows that you have strong intuition yet you don’t trust it. This is a common frustration for many “psychic personalities” and it renders your intuition almost useless.

The good news is, there’s plenty of things you can do to overcome this. Here are some helpful resources to check out:

Interview with Dr.Cara Gubbins on Intuition

If you got mostly b’s, congratulations! Not only are you in-touch with your intuition, but you also trust it and are willing to act on it. That’s no small feat! You have the potential to be an Olypmic level psychic!


The Psychic Personality

Over the years, I have noticed that those who are very connected to their intuition tend to have common personality traits. See below for my list. Of course, not every intuitive is going to have all of these traits, but these are just the one’s that I keep noticing.

Avoids crowds but loves people-watching

Prefers a quieter atmosphere most of the time

Loves reading and collecting books

Seems to need more sleep than the average person

Is drawn to paranormal and new age topics like ghosts, astral travel, psychic development, energy healing, past lives, hypnosis, shamanism, etc….

Prefers deep, intimate conversation to polite small talk

Enjoys alone time

Avoids violent movies and The News


What do you think?

In the comments below, please share your thoughts on this topic – can you relate to this list of characteristics? Are you an intuitive introvert? Or a psychic extravert? I would love to hear your take on this!

Four of Pentacles: Time to bust out of your comfort zone!

fridays with veronicaVeronica Noir, The Daily Tarot Girl’s evil counterpart, is here to kick some sense into you with her uncompassionate style of Tarot reading. She usually writes these half-drunk, so take her advice with a grain of salt…or a tablespoon!

the miser
Osho Zen Tarot

Today’s card is 4 of Pentacles and the message is clear: magic doesn’t happen in the comfort zone.

Yes, I know, the comfort zone is awesome. I love it too.

There is nothing I love more than snuggling on my couch, sipping spiked hot chocolate and watching The Vampire Diaries or some other silly show.

But does it make me feel ALIVE? No. Fuck no.

We all need to rest and recharge, I get it. That’s what the comfort zone is for. But don’t stay there forever – you weren’t meant to, for God’s sake!

It’s time for you to bust out from behind your wall and share your sparkly goodies with the world.

You hide yourself out of fear, you modest thing, you! But once you step out of your comfort zone, something amazing happens….your comfort zone gets bigger and bigger and bigger…..

Until suddenly you’re doing nude yoga at your local park and feeling totally cool with it.

In the comments below, tell me how you plan to step out of your comfort zone this weekend…

What is your self-talk sayin’? Veronica to the rescue…

fridays with veronicaVeronica is my evil twin/alter ego and she takes over my blog on Friday’s to impart her bitchy wisdom. When she isn’t Tarot reading, she’s seducing some buff young thing at the gym, penning sultry smut on her laptop and knocking back the martinis while laughing maniacally at some mediocre romantic comedy…

turning in
Osho Zen Tarot

Today it’s time to turn inward…..and tune out any obnoxious voices that distract you and make you feel like total shit.

As boring as it sounds, spend a few minutes meditating. And notice what voices show up.

This is what some people call “self talk”.

When I did this I heard all kinds of silly chitter chatter like “you really shouldn’t sleep in past 11am”, “eating chocolate hazelnut hedgehogs for dinner is immature”, “leave those young men alone” and “you should be saving for your retirement.”

Where were these voices coming from?! Who were these jerks?

If I was in a room with people who said things like that I would start chucking beer bottles.

So as you observe your inner voices, don’t judge…but ask yourself this: “if a person I knew said this to my face, would I want to shank them?”

If the answer is yes, then why on earth is it okay for you to say that shit to yourself?

It’s not! So laugh at your judgy self-talk like it’s the funniest joke in the whole world.

In the comments below, tell me what crappy self talk your going to laugh at today….

How to Connect with Your Tarot Deck….Part 2

A couple of years ago I wrote a blog post about how to connect with your Tarot deck in three easy steps.

This article has proven to be the most popular article on my site, consistently getting the most views and comments – so I thought I would expand on the topic for those of you who are ready to take things a step further!

My favorite thing to do when I get a new deck (or if I am just feeling disconnected from an old deck) is to interview it. This sounds a little kooky at first, I know, but hear me out…

I like to think of my Tarot deck as a close friend – one who knows all my secrets and who gives fantastic advice when I need it most.

tarot and tea (2)

And like a close friend, I would never just dump all my problems on her and then walk away without asking how she’s doing or what’s new in her life. So why would I treat my Tarot deck that way?

Truth of the matter is, sometimes I start thinking of my Tarot deck as just a stack of paper and I forget to treat it like a good friend – and that’s when my readings go to shit.

So take the time to get to know your Tarot deck. Ask it some deep questions.

  • What is your main mission or message in this world?
  • What is most important to you?
  • What do you want to share with me?
  • What would you like me to know about you?
  • Do you have a favorite card in this deck?
  • What is your biggest fear?
  • Which card sums up your personality?
  • What can I do for you that would ensure we have a good relationship?

When I asked my Crystal Visions Tarot deck “what is most important to you?” I got The Hermit, which I interpreted as meaning that meditation and deep contemplation were meaningful things for this deck.

When I asked the same deck “what can I do to ensure a good relationship?” I got the Six of Pentacles – a card about give and take and helping each other. I often see this card as being about being able to receive help from another, so this card could mean that gratiously receiving the help that this deck will give me is what will ensure a good relationship.

But what if you get a weird card?

For example, you ask “what is your main mission in this world?” and you get The Devil. Good god! What does it mean?

Look at your cards in the most positive light possible. The Devil is all about addictions and having the opportunity to bring awareness into the cycle of addiction so that you can rise above it. So this could mean that your deck’s mission is to help you break out of destructive cycles in your life.

Have fun with these questions and feel free to share your results in the comments below!

Goals are for dorks. Veronica says burn your vision board!

fridays with veronicaVeronica is my evil twin and Tarot reader extraordinaire. She is here to extract the wisdom of the Tarot and inject it into your daily life….all while talking nasty and being a total bitch.

the burden
Osho Zen Tarot

You know what? You don’t have to set any more fucking goals from now on.

You don’t have to become your “best self” or improve or aim higher.

Leave that shit to Tony Robbins.

You’re good just the way you are.

Do you feel a weight lifting off your shoulders now? Do you feel a little less exhausted?

That’s because goals and dreams can drag you down. Oh sure, at first they seem to lift you up – just like cocaine.

You feel all zippy when you paste together your vision board. You’re overcome by that heady assumption that the universe is your bitch and you can just order shit up like at a drive thru.

But then time passes and realization hits you – your vision board is nothing but a shit festival of broken dreams – a beautiful pictographic representation of all the things you’ve failed to achieve this year.

So give yourself a break! Enjoy the NOW. Scrap all your goal books and dreamboards and all other future-oriented crapolla. Your perfect as you are right now.

Your welcome.
