I have divination magic which is often less useful than you would think (I 
have talked about how being able to tell when people are lying doesn't mean 
I can do anything about it), although it is useful for impressing 
colleagues. I read tarot once a year at our Christmas party, and always 
manage to shock some cynical person (usually a chap) who thinks it is all 
bunk. This year, I read for a colleague's wife who I had not previously 
met, and managed to put my finger on a central contention in their marriage 
that they clearly don't ever talk about in public.
