Oh my.
Got this in the mail the other day. The effect is that a spectator looks up their astrological sign in a booklet and you reveal the sign.

Well okay. The principle involved may have other applications, BUT the booklet has the spellings of the Astrological signs in SPANISH! And in addition, each sign gets two different pages, but the sign for Sagittarius is spelled in two different ways: Sagitario and Sagitarius.

So even if you were performing for a Spanish speaking spec, the booklet is still mismade. In addition the instructions are near incoherent. Nowhere on the packaging or in any of the advertising I've seen for this effect does it mention these issues.

Kozuch is Argentinean, so I guess it was developed for his market first, but the English translation is totally inadequate. There's no manufacturer's name on it, but there is a website in tiny tiny letters on the back. I'll visit there, and let you know what happens. Anyone else have experience with this item?

Sounds like an adaptation of the little astrology book that was included with Phil Goldstein's book "Thabbatical", the effect was called "Zodiagnostic" p.52.

Hello, I am Eduardo Kozuch, I wrote in another topic about the spelling mistakes in the booklet, and I offered to send the replacement pages.

There were only 50 units with spelling mistakes,(and I already sent the replacement pages to 21 people,) then a magician who bought it, advised me about the spelling mistakes and I re-printed it and sold more than 500 units.

My e-mail is ekozuch@kadima.com.ar and if anyone of you have this effect, please write to me telling me the address where I may send the pages and I will send them.
Regards,
edu

Hello Eduardo,

Thank you for replying. I'm glad to hear that this only affected a few units. I understand that often the creator of an effect does not have total control over the manufacturing process, so I appreciate your trying to set this right. I will send you an email.

Thanks,
Jack Shalom

Paul, No it is not. The little Goldstein book was an extention on branching anagrams which was the main theme in Thabbatical. This is entirely different, you do not attempt to spell out the thought of sign. You obtain the sign by other means.

Hello everybody, to perform this effect, you have to read the instructions very carefully, because they are not easy to understand at once even if someone reads it in Spanish.

So it's probably are harder to understand if the translation is not perfect. (Although the instructions were translated by a professional).

But after you understand the instructions, and you practice just a very few times, this effect is very very easy to perform, so if some of you find it hard to understand, please write me asking me whatever you want.

Also I will take photos and send with every single step, so everyone who bought it , can use it.
