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!

Six of Pentacles ~ Share and Collaborate

Animal Wisdom Tarot by Dawn Brunke

Today is all about sharing and conferring with others. The Six of Fossils (aka Six of Pentacles) reminds you that you don’t have to do it all alone!

What groups are you a part of? This can be online communities, your co-workers, social groups, sports teams, whatever – just remember that you have many groups that you can consult with if you need help, advice, ideas or just support.

Someone may unexpectedly help you today in a really big way, or you may feel called to lend a helping hand to a friend or stranger. Sharing, helping others and collaboration will feel very natural and easy for you right now!


Six of Pentacles ~ Tarot Reading for Thursday

The New Palladini Tarot by David Palladini

Today’s daily tarot reading turns up the Six of Pentacles, which brings a message of balance, equality and the importance of generosity.

I have the feeling that most people reading this are very good at showing generosity to others and wouldn’t hesitate to help a friend in need. But how do you feel about accepting help from others? What about accepting compliments?

Today is all about graciously accepting help and kindness from others. You know how good it feels to do something nice for someone, so do someone the favor of letting them do something nice for you!

On a different note, I feel that the Six of Pentacles speaks of the need to balance finances. Don’t be reckless with your spending this today and make sure that your inflow and outflow of money is nicely balanced.
