The "Rest of the Story" Follow-up Spread

In my continuing quest for "Truth, Justice and the elimination of confusing and superfluous clarifying cards," I created a follow-up spread that can be used when the outcome card for a previous reading is puzzling or inconclusive. It offers three paths for furthering the situation via additional information of the "What will happen if . . .?" variety. One path is active and hostile, one is passive and benign (just "go with the flow") and the third is passive-aggressive and reluctant to engage, counting on the uncertainty to pass of its own accord. The cards in each series will show which stance will produce the strongest case for adoption in the longer term. If the cards in two or more paths are of relatively equal strength and quality, use your intuition to decide on the best course

This spread is basically a middle ground between pulling one or two clarifier cards on the fly and A.E. Waite's recommendation that a second entire reading should be done with the inconclusive outcome card as the new significator. It should be created by setting the new significator aside and reshuffling the deck. The advantage of this approach is that you don't have to read the whole scenario from scratch, just the three-card sets that amplify the new situation.

ETA: I revised the spread to include instructions for use.
