|The Suit of Coins
|This is another suit who has had their name
mutated over the years. Long recognized by
cartomancers as the suit of Pentacles, a softer

or the five extremities of the human body and the five alchemical elements of
Through the journey of the suit of Coins we can see the many positive and
negative aspects of the material world and how we interrelate with it. The
Coins speak to your desire for personal physical comfort. The Coins talk about
success and achievement. The Coins talk of commerce and investment. The
coins talk about building a secure financial foundation from which you can
launch your dreams – whatever they manifest to be in your mind and inner heart.
