I just designex this spread, it seems to cover most topics and questions. Each position number I have given has three possible relationships with the cards. the first is general and works well for a timeline question, the seccond is for questioning how something has occured and what is happening in the here and now. the third is for more spiritual and metaphysical questions.
position 6 is sideways.
1. Self, What is happening right now, how things appear
2. (crossing 1 sideways) enhancing/diminishing influences, filters, blockages
3. distant past, foundation, what is gone
4. recent past, structure, what is fleeting
5. what is coming to be, plannning and development, what can be expected
6. what looms overhead, what oversees the situation, what canot be addressed right now.
