Perhaps someday there will appear a poet courageous enough to give expression to the voices of the "mothers." ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Pages 386-387
The High Priestess carries a closed book. What would we see if she were to open it for us? Would the words be in a foreign language or the pages blank?
On our side of the veil, we don’t have the eyes to perceive what is written within. It is a deep, intuitive wisdom that can’t be put directly into words.
Unless it is a book of mythic stories, fairytales or poems, where deep knowledge can be hinted at in subtle patterns and connections.
The Tarot Deck itself is a book unbound with many stories to tell us.
