Now for something completely different: a propless star sign reveal! Smile

"The Bird" is by Carlos Emesqua's take on the star sign reveal and I feel it's a nice change of pace from all the usual stuff. It's really streamlined and direct, and the star sign will come out of nowhere.

It reminds me of my own September, so for the 3 or 4 people who read that: if you enjoyed it, you'll surely enjoy The Bird.

Now, now... I know you have questions... let's do a quick Q & A, shall we?

Q: Why do I need ANOTHER star sign reveal?
A: Well... you don't... if you're perfectly happy with what you have, don't buy this or other versions of this plot. I think it's a good thing that so many versions of this plot are being released: it means we're all trying to push things further and never settle. That's what we do with everything in life, why wouldn't we do it with magic and mentalism effects? Imagine if people had stopped improving the telephone as soon as the first one was made? Or cars? Or computers? Or ice cream?!?!?

Q: Is this better than this other effect?
A: No. And yes. It depends. As with most effects, there's a trade off. You just need to find an effect where the trade off works for YOU. And what works for you might not work for someone else (or anyone else, for that matter).

Q: What makes this different from all the others?
A: Now, that's a better question, thanks! As you know, most star sign divinations (and that's especially true for propless) require you to speak about zodiac signs... you either need to focus on individual letters or some categories (that might or might not be made up). With "The Bird" you get none of that: you'll deliver a very conversational numerology reading and, in the process, you'll get their star sign without any mention of the zodiac whatsoever. Then you reveal it anyway you want to.

Q: Do I NEED to do this in the context of a reading?
A: Yes. And that's a good thing. If you do enough readings you'll realise how meaningful they can be to someone. And I'll go as far as saying that, if you REALLY do enough readings, you'll eventually think the other way around: should I put a zodiac reveal into my reading? Smile

Q: Can I make a joke about this being called "The Bird"?
A: Yes, if you're 6 years old, go ahead Smile

Q: Ok, I'm convinced. Where can I get this?
A: https://thebirdmentalism.blogspot.pt/

Thanks,
Adrien.

Hahaha, great review Adrien, thanks for your words!

that's the beauty of creative explorations, just playing with new approaches for different situations, and Carlos one is a good one for those impromptu, propless, conversational times when you don't have your little cards or other props that can give physical aid.

Just words, some numerology and covert ways to get information Smile

The master at this plot says:

"The Bird is a simple and elegant solution to revealing a sign under the guise of numerology. Get it!"
Fraser Parker




Someone asked me privately if they need to know about Numerology to perform "The Bird". Although I recommend a basic knowledge, there is no real need. In the eBook we add some guidelines to do a very basic and direct Numerology reading that can lead to the Zodiac Sign revelation.
