I know you asked June, but I hope you don't mind me giving you a few spreads that I've invented, as well as a few from the book Power Tarot:
The Tree Spread
Card 1: The Root The root of the problem/that which is hidden or unknown. Card 2: The Trunk Symptoms - How the root is affecting you. Card 3: The Branches How your relaitonships and/or health are being affected. Card 4: Leaves Healing focus and meditation
Amazing Grace Spread
Card 1: What was lost Card 2: What was found Card 3: How you (or the querent) are blind Card 4: How you (or the querent) see
Synergy Relationship Spread
Card 1: Represents the other person and where they're at in life presently Card 2: Represents you (or the querent) and where you are at right now Card 3: The core of the issue/problem Card 4: What you need to know about the situation Card 5: Healing and resolution
From Power Tarot:
1 Current physical state 2 Current mental state 3 Current emotional state 4 Current spiritual state
1 Your greatest strength 2 How you can enhance this strength 3 How you can apply it to a relationship, project, or event 4 What this strength brings to you
1 Your current life direction 2 The lesson your're learning 3 What you're moving toward 4 You're long term objective 5 What will help you attain your objective
I have used the window spread for folks before but they dont seem to like it much. I thought about the Direction Spread too. I found a moon spread that looks good that I may use. And I LOVE your tree spread!
It actually was really slow. The shop owner accidently sceduled for the same day as the first day of the Renaissance Faire and a Pagan family picnic so you can imagine where everyone was But I did a few readings and ended up using my standard spread, which is one I created based on the Feng Shui Bagua map.

Yes, Fiona, that Ba Gua spread sounds very intriguing.
I lean towards Asian philosophy/spirituality and would find that article very interesting. As you probably know, the Ba Gua is also very much related to the I Ching (another oracle system). I'd love to learn about a spread that relates to the Ba Gua. If you post it to your site, could you let us know on these discussion boards in case we (I) miss it?
