Zodiac by Chris Ballinger is not just a trick, but a complete system for creating a lasting impression on your audience.

The Effect:
The performer shows a pile of cards depicting the signs of the Zodiac. A spectator is asked to cut the cards and the remainder is used to make a circular calendar. The spectator counds how many cards they cut and then moves around the calendar to that number. When the card they are pointing to is turned over, it is shown to be their sign! Then they look at the card they cut to and it is an exact match as well. These are the only two cards in the entire pile that match their Zodiac symbol.

Effect Two:
This can be done as a stand alone effect or as a follow-up to the routine just mentioned. The pile of Zodiac cards are split in two and both pile are shuffled by the spectator. One pile is taken by the spectator and the other by the magician. The magician places cards face-down on the table and the spectator puts their cards on top of them one at a time. At the end of the routine all of the cards match perfectly. This can be doen as a prediction, a mind-reading, or a cold-reading effect.

Effect Three: Two spectators connect as one secretly places their card down on the table. The other spectator says "stop" anywhere they like as the second pile of Zodiac cards are delt on the table. When the two cards are turned over, it is an exact match.

Recommended For:
Perfect for mentalists, close-up magicians and restaurant workers. A great ice-breaker that really gets the crowd to open up to you.

No sleight of hand, memorization or re-set time. You can immediately repeate the trick with different results!

Trick Specifications:
Includes twenty-four ungimmicked Zodiac cards, featuring original artwork ny Chris Ballinger and aged texture beautifully printed on heavy card stock; cloth carrying bag and instructional DVD. DVD includes step-by-step how to perform all of the effects, plus bonus handlings and a method for secretly marking the cards.

For a refreshing take on close up magic that's not a card effect Zodiac fills that ticket. My wife loves it- is unable to even start to figure it out. Simple, no sleights, and best of all a story to tell that everyone is interested in: the signs of the Zodiac.
