coins


Coins are the suit representing earth. These cards tend to symbolize the physical body, value, labor, grounding, and structure.

 

ACE OF COINS

A single coin speaks for itself.

Opportunity, potential, a gift, a seed, an offering, a price to pay.

TWO OF COINS

Two coins touch, but do not intermingle. They are separate, yet they influence each other’s presence.

Balance, pacing, mindful participation, independent growth.

THREE OF COINS

Two coins create a base to uplift a third. Without any one single coin, it would no longer be a structure.


Collaboration, projects, mutual growth, sharing, diverse perspectives.

FOUR OF COINS
Two of the coins are intertwined, drawing attention, but we cannot see the two below. Are we right to assume they are secure and connected? Are we right to worry?

Protection, greed, materialism, structure, a safe and unchanging space, appreciation.

FIVE OF COINS

Though above, coins are connected, one is left out. Though conformity is assumed, the coins above are connected in slightly different ways. Are we better on the outside of such unions? Do we benefit from the shelter of the crowd?

Isolation, worth as determined by others, collective safety, conformity, being humbled.

SIX OF COINS

The coins move in cycles, in circles, all overlapping another, and all being overlapped. All is equal, all is shared.

Reciprocity, community health vs. charity, vulnerability, sharing, the cycles of growth.

SEVEN OF COINS

The row of coins leading upwards bow out in illusion. Time stretches and bends. Is the prize worth the wait? What does success look like when journeys take time, or never have an end?

Patience, slow progress, sustainability, anticipation.

EIGHT OF COINS

Two rows form a staircase, guiding us higher or deeper into our journey. We make the path as we walk it.

Repetition, independent development, passionate work, re-inspiration, internal work, and dialogue.

NINE OF COINS

Nine coins stacked in groups of three. Outcomes, realities, truths, all different. What is raise up? What is integrated? What is hidden?

Self-criticism, self-sufficiency, privilege, opportunities.

TEN OF COINS

Interconnected, overlapping, all in a circle. A portal, a vessel, a bloom.

Inter-connectivity, community wealth, expression of value, family, safety.


MOUNTAIN OF COINS

Where the mountain meets the earth. A grounded soul. A challenge of patience and listening. An offering for the spirit of all that is slow, strong, and quiet.

FLAME OF COINS

Where the flame meets the earth. The spark of life meets the body it lives in. Chasing the heat, finding the details. A gift to that which brings you light, pleasure, and resilience.

WAVE OF COINS

Where the wave meets the earth. The vessel of the heart washes over the flesh of the form. The integration of reality and dreams. A sweet pearl in the depths of the love, the loss, and the unknown.

WIND OF COINS

Where the wind meets the earth. The spirit of flight and the spirit of the anchor. Plans to reality, reality to plans. Wind worn soil, sand coloring the air, the moving of the earth through the will of the sky.
