Tyldwick - Ace of Coins


"the sacred hoop of my people was one of the many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all..." ~ Black Elk

The coin on this card resembles a hoop, which brought to mind the quote by Black Elk. Circles are found throughout many cultures, from the medicine wheels of native people to the sand mandalas of Tibetan Buddhists. For Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, they represented wholeness. As humans, we seek the blessings of health and wealth - the kind of wholeness that will allow us to live life more fully. Most wheels and mandalas begin with a dot in the center that radiates outward into a larger circle. Like the saying "a penny saved is a penny earned," this card suggests that we have the opportunity to expand to "wholeness" if we will do our part. So will we settle for one slice or make an effort to win the whole pie?
