Hi Lorredan and nice to see you again here !!!
1-Well the simple reason for that is LA PAPESSE really begin the whole card sequence and begin that placed seeing toward LE BATELEVR.
So not ahead toward III card.
2-With regard to her meaning I see her as a depiction of ours innermost knowledge that comes form ours Souls.
Contrary to Visconti deck and Vieville alsoshe show his book widely opened.
She has no problem about this because we can t be able to read it without her help as an agent of ours Souls..
Her system is based on a deepest intuition.
3-She is facing LE BATELEVR not as a earthly couple by itself but yes as an ours guiding one.
LE BATELEVR as the book of her isn t "explained"he only do his "work"so we must "read" it.
4-I think my firend Lorredan that her book has the lesson of LE BATELEVR work "write" to learn through his feminine (Soul agent) guide.
The Universe is like a Mamushka.
