Cool My new spread


Ok, I named it the problem-solving spread, but it's a bit clumsy, so if anyone has a better idea, don't be shy!

----------[12]----------
------[10]----[11]------
--[8]---------------[9]--
--------------------------
------[7]------[6]-------
--[4]------[1]------[5]--
--[2]---------------[3]--

1: Nature of the problem
2: Attitude (can reflect in outer circumstances) in the past
3: Past actions

2 and 3 lead up to the current problem.

4: Current attitude that is preserving the status quo
5: Current actions that preserve the status quo

6: Secondary gains from staying in the situation
7: Further problems/difficulties that this situation causes

8: Necessary changes in attitude (aka "Inner Changes")
9: Necessary action ("Outer Changes")

10: Outside help/resources
11: Timing card (see the thread I started in this forum about timing) *)

12: Outcome

*) Sorry, but I don't know how to link to other threads


I tried the spread with good results. Let me think if it's useful to you.

Oh My Goddess, Geenius! How funny is that??? (wiping coffee yet again from my computer screen)

You know... it is kind of shaped like that.... Are we showing our age or what?

And, I should get a screen cover for my computer monitor....

Tigerlily,
This spread looks like the rune Othila so maybe you could call it the Othila Spread. The Othila rune is about home and inheritance so I’m not sure that would fit with your intentions. (I have to admit that I really like the name Space Invaders Spread! He, he, he.)

I noticed that cards 6 and 7 seem to be reversed to me. All the other pairs have the even number on the left and the odd number on the right. The number 2 is on the left and 3 is on the right. The number 4 is on the left and 5 is on the right. Then 6 and 7 are the opposite but 8 & 10 are again on the left and 9 & 11 on the right. Is there any significance to numbers 6 & 7 being reversed?

I really like this spread. Thanks for sharing!

ROFL!!! Geenius, what have you done! Now it will ALWAYS be known as the Space Invaders Spread! Nobody's going to take it seriously anymore... LOL

Raeanne: My thought was that the left column (cards 2, 4, 7, 8 and 10) is more "passive", the right one more "active" and I tend to see gains as something you anjoy passively, whereas problems tend to stir you into action. But if it irritates you, by all means change it! The spread's still in its developmental phase and open to improvements.

And Othila can mean "sanctuary" - since the spread offers you a solution to a pressing problem, maybe it's like seeking refuge in a sanctuary???

This looks like a veeeeeeeeery cool spread, Tigerlily -- I can't wait to try it out!

(And there are times when your sig makes more sense than others, ya know? LOL!)

Question, though: do cards 2 and 4, and 3 and 5, cover-and-cross, or is that merely my imagination?

(Edited because sometimes I'm about dang blind)

So...
then it's 'toggle', 'toggle', left joystick to get the final outcome?
or is it 'option', 'space bar', 'toggle', 'toggle'?

i'm sorry tigerlily... I couldn't help myself...
feel free to hurl rotten vegetables

BAD HERMIT! NO BISCUIT!
