The Page of Cups is a card of preparing for creativity, and what better animal than the chicken, whose nest is the site of hundreds of little creations a year? In this assemblage, a chicken skull puts the finishing touches on a cozy nest, ready to become the site of new possibilities of many sorts! But there’s a bit of a surprise–rather than using a box or the ground, she’s chosen a coyote rib bone as the base for her work. Will she think of new ways to outwit her enemy, or is she perhaps drawing on the coyote’s cleverness? Be careful if this card shows up reversed, though: it can symbolize a creative block, a lack of maturity or forethought, or inability to cope with changes and stresses in one’s life. All of these can put the kibosh on even the best-intended creative efforts.
This is the 75th assemblage for the Tarot of Bones, which including the Happy Squirrel means I have just four assemblages left! Better yet, all four of the remaining assemblages are in varyinf stages of completion in my workspace, and I should have no trouble meeting my deadline of completing all of them by the end of 2015.
