Marseille Papess
from the Marseille Tarot
illustrated by Jean Dodal
from the Rider-Waite Tarot
illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith

‘Papess’ she is called - Pontifica -
Bridging the pillars of the Worlds
She sits guarding the Portal

Holding the Book of the Worlds’ Tales

Which is the anima mundi written
For she who can read it and those
Who hear her tell it; no secrets
For those who see through the Veil.

What is it awaits there
To be discovered? If the curtain falls
From your eyes she will know
And so will guide you along the way.
