(from the book)

Seven coins on an obelisk refer to the seven metals in alchemy. They form a ladder of evolution as each is purified and transforms into the one overhead. At the top, they become gold -the perfection - shown as the fruit of the tree of life - the philosopher's stone. Seven is the number of completion. It is the hero's number, especially in terms of his tasks. It also represents magic.

Tarot wisdom: The ladder shows the process of evolution, and emphasizes that there is a natural growth order. An end result awaits you because you planted the right seeds and undertook the right process. You are reaping what you sow. The message also might refer to looking back over your steps, or reviewing your progress. Don't get impatient and try to jump
ahead to the end--you'll miss crucial steps along the way.
