I've been working hard on a few upcoming releases."Signs of the Times" is but one of several in the works at the moment. No expense has been spared on this either. In addition to commissioning a very talented graphic artist to bring this vision to life, this routine also features factory-made Zodiac cards whose magnificent beauty are unlike anything that has ever been produced before. A few examples of these cards can be found on the front cover of this book if you'd like a sneak peek. Smile

More info soon.

Do you shuffle, cut, shuffle, cut, deal, deal shuffle, deal at every step? ; ). Sorry... inside joke.

Yes, Tom I do! And to simplify things further, I've cut down the required faros to 3 by adding in a binary sorting procedure and 2 down under deals and a branching anagram. The even better news is that all of those procedurally justified moves get taken care of in the first 9 minutes of the routine, allowing me to finish in a total of about 17 minutes. At that point I can usually determine the participant's sign with about 88.3% accuracy! Smile

And it totally looks like mind reading too.

The other good news, is that in keeping with my past spirit of sharing, I will be giving away 5 sets of these to some lucky Café members. The total production cost for these is extremely high, so some folks are going to get very lucky indeed.

Will this include Ophiuchus, or just the traditional "newspaper horoscope" signs?

@Doug: No Ophiuchus, only the traditional 12 signs are covered.

@Iain: A Prince card?

Doug made a good point not to be overlooked. If you're doing the presentation for shut eyes, they'll know more about star signs than you. Actually adding the new star sign Ophiuchus would give a wonderful discussion potential about the science of Astronomy and the pseudoscience of astrology. Also it will make you appear very current in you're astrological study. Just a thought.
FWIW,

Hi Leondo.

I understand completely, and I agree. That said though, this is actually a routine. The included cards can be used for other purposes, but the methodology will not allow for Ophiuchus to be used at all.

'Shut eyes' who are actually interested in Astrology will NOT be looking for the 13th sign, NOBODY who is seriously interested in astrology paid any attention to Ophiuchus. This is why:

Ophiuchus is a constellation, not a sign. While the 12 traditional signs are loosely associated with their corresponding constellations, that's not how it works.

The 12 signs are created by making 12 equal divisions of the zodiac. That is literally the definition of an astrological sign, not the constellations themselves.

The whole Ophiuchus thing was just a stunt.

As of tonight, all the details of these cards have been finalized, the work is finished, and they are template-ready for the manufacturer tomorrow!

Since the first day I dreamed up this effect in 1999, it has been one of those things that has never left my mind and I never really imagined that one day this would become a reality.

Here are the finalized back designs. Please note that the borders are a tad uneven as these were just proofs that were hand cut, not machine cut like the factory will be doing.
