The key word for the inner meaning of the Four of Coins is ORIGINALITY stemming from the Aquarius decanate of Aquarius, Equulus, which is sub-ruled by Uranus. Because the horse was mankind’s fastest mode of transportation from eons past, the ancients used the horse as a universal symbol of the speedy conveyance of ideas. The constellation of Equulus is pictured in the heavens as the head of a horse, excluding the body, to represent the intelligence factor of a horse and not his physical attributes. Even in today’s vernacular the term horse sense, old fashioned as it may be, is an expression meaning common sense, sound prudent judgment, or the practical opinions of ordinary people. However, because this decanate is ruled by Uranus, the planet of the individualist, the Four of Coins reminds us to balance conventional wisdom and academics with individual experience. Hermetic Astrology teaches that the natal chart is a useful tool for understanding our natural abilities and weaknesses in character and that with this understanding we can influence our experiences in life. Making use of this wonderful tool to benefit our individual experiences while taking full advantage of all knowledge that comes our way is a winning combination toward a more fulfilling life.
Because there is no story connected with the decanate of Equulus, we may move directly to the spiritual meaning of the Four of Coins, which is: Next to love, man’s most useful companion is knowledge, and in particular the knowledge of the manner in which the planets influence human life and destiny.
