Alchemical Study Group - Seven of Coins

In this card we see an Obelisk. On it are seven coins, the seventh coin within a tree on top. There is vegetation and hills in the background. The seven coins represent the process of evolution to reach the ultimate goal.

My understanding from reading the original book is that the seven coins represent the seven planets and metals also as follows:

Sun - Gold
Moon - Silver
Mercury - Quicksilver
Venus - Copper
Mars - Iron
Jupiter - Tin
Saturn - Lead

I really like the image on this card. For me it speaks of needing to follow the process through until you reach your goal. There is no quick-fix to achieve your desires. YOu must sow the seeds and then be patient as you fulfil the tasks required to reach the goal. Also, in the book, Place warns of rushing too fast and missing important steps along the way.

I think for me this card is a reminder to be clear about what you want to achieve and to plan how you will get there. Then you need to actually do the work required in order to reach the top.
