Alice Hoffman’s Practical Magic Spread

On This Day

Hoffman admits her childhood was not always a happy one. Speaking of the magic she discovered amidst the escapism of books, the young Hoffman was often found in the library.

Author Alice Hoffman was born on this day in 1952. Her extraordinary Practical Magic describes two bewitching sisters struggling to use their gift of hereditary magic in life and in love.

Summation of Spread

The Page, or Knave, of Pentacles is most likely to be found lost in the beauty of prose, expanding her mind through the words of others, and buried in a book. The most studious and serious of all pages, this page’s love of learning is unparalleled by any other card in the deck.

This spread, inspired by Alice Hoffman’s magical realism, reflects on the magical currents coursing through your life. Pay close attention to energetic reserves that are yours for the taking when you reach out to become who you truly are.
