30 Day Tarot Challenge - Day 12: Designing My Own Spread

30 Day Tarot Challenge - Day 12: Have you ever created your own spread? If so, how effective is it? (Feel free to show the spread.)

A few months ago, one of the topics at the Tarot Blog Hop in which I participated was about the significance of Mabon.  In recognition of Mabon, I designed a tarot spread with the intention to help a client who was in the throes of transformation at that time. Below details my Transformation spread that was specially designed for the question “What can I do to move on?”
Card 1 Magician: Self in Situation - . Assess where you are now & what is influencing your actions in the current situation (You may choose an appropriate significator representing you in the situation)
Card 2 - Reversed 6 of Pentacles: Identify Cause - What is the root cause of the negativity surrounding the situation/
Card 3 - 2 of Pentacles: Response – How have you responded to the cause of negativity in your current situation?
Card 4 - Reversed Page of Wands: Hopes and Fears - What are your hopes and fears pertaining to the current situation?
Card 5 - Hermit: Response – How have you responded to your hopes and fears pertaining to the current situation?
Card 6 - Reversed 5 of Wands: Change - What can you change about the current situation?
Card 7 - Queen of Cups: Commitment – What can you do to commit to making these changes?
The cards were positioned as shown below:                           

                                 Card 6

Card 2                                                       Card 4
                                 Card 1

Card 3                                                       Card 5

                                Card 7

I think my client is aware of the issue but the spread had validated what her next steps should be.  It was like a catalyst kicking her into acknowledging what she had to do for her sense of self-worth and sanity.  And she did.
This Transformation Tarot spread was also shared within Biddy Tarot’s blog and I had received quite a few comments that the spread was very useful. 
Mabon’s come and gone.  However, I am still using this Tarot spread from time to time.
