Everyone knows that the Devil can be a perfidious fellow (what The Eagles once called a “cru-el dude”). Here I cast him as the proverbial “rat” in the classic “I smell a rat” trouble-is-brewing scenario. A key feature of this spread is that the Rat may not appear exactly where the Querent suspects he is going to; there is some latitude for devious redirection of the forces at work in the matter. (For example, you may think your problem lies with your boss but it really stems from something in your home environment that you’re in denial about.) Where he lands marks the crux of the Querent’s premonition, whether or not accurately assumed in advance. (The “exposure” positions can be renamed as necessary to fit the situation.) The guidance on the spread display needs no further amplification. However, it may be useful to read the series “Situation – Rat – Exposure – Advice Cards” (including the Rat’s modifiers) as a branching decision tree showing the best way to tackle the anticipated dilemma. I also see possibilities for using other challenging cards as the agent provocateur in the “Rat” position, but I would want to come up with a more trenchant euphemism; “Blow-up” might be a good one for The Tower where the situation seems to be on a collision course with major upset, “The Verdict” for Justice when one’s “just desserts” are due, or”Wake-up Call” for Judgement when an ultimatum may be approaching.
