The name “Moneta” incidentally, is where the contemporary term
“money” is derived.
The goddess Moneta had roles other than just overseeing coinage.
She also provided “warnings” about “instability”. That is to say,
instability in the form of “economics”, and related governmental
and social events. Her message was that the way to economic and
social stability was following the Will of Heaven.
Throughout the ancient world the square is used to signify the world or microcosm. This squaring the circle we find in many places. One example is the I Ching coin where we see the circle forming the divine reality or infinite with the square as that which is within, the macro cosmos and microcosmos. This is of course as basis of Hermeticism and most familiarly the emerald tablet of Hermes Trismegistus.
