Mark Chandaue's Ophiuchus is a new tool for revealing a participant's star sign and date of birth, or one could call it an old tool used in a new and deceptive way.

Ophiuchus comes with three effects:

Basic effect:
After testing the participant's intuition, the performer gives a reading and correctly reveals the participant's star sign.

Intermediate effect:
After testing the participant's intuition, the performer gives a reading and correctly reveals the participant's star sign and date of birth.

Advanced effect:
The performer correctly reveals the star signs of two participants.

Ophiuchus has the following features:

  • High quality props included
  • No complicated mathematics
  • Fully justified and simple procedure
  • Birthday can include the year
  • Star sign can be revealed without the props
  • No threads, magnets, electronics or stooges.
Here are some quotes about Mark Chandaue's Ophiuchus:

"This is not only a great effect to carry with you all the time, but is personal, engaging and powerful. Mark added a very clever twist making the principle invisible! Well done!"
- Luca Volpe, The Italian Mentalist

"With Ophiuchus, Mark has once again taken a powerful principle in mentalism and sent it into overdrive. Not only does this effect have an engaging presentation and guaranteed impact on your participant, it's also perfectly justified at every stage, from every angle, and the subtleties make it completely bulletproof. I can't wait to add this into my close up act!"
- Dee Christopher

"Fantastic. It's so deceptive and covert. It's brilliant."
- Barry Fazackerly

"Mark has taken a classic effect and hidden it in plain sight in the most logical and entertaining way.
"Ophiuchus is a simple yet powerful effect and, in typical Chandaue fashion, no stone is left unturned when it comes to method and presentation.
"If you perform magic in the 'real world,' then don't miss this opportunity to perform an effect that will truly connect with your audience."
- Roddy McGhie

"Ophiuchus is going to go down in history as one of the best semi-automatic mentalism effects of all time. This will be a runner for product of the year easily."
- Jacob Smith

"All I can say is that this is something that every mentalist who enjoys pure star sign or birthday revelations should have in their repertoire. It truly is a class piece of mentalism."
- Tom Wong

The mastermind behind Harpacrown brings you a deviously good new system based closely off an old principle. It is true that the principle itself could be seen as transparent, it’s Mark’s presentation and scripting as a whole which makes this oh-so fooling. If devining the star sign wasn’t enough Mark’s combination of bold and clever scripting allows you to get your spectators WHOLE birthday. Yes you read that right; the day, the month and the year with 100% accuracy every time.
If for some reason you didn’t want to reveal a spectator’s birthday, not to worry because Mark has included further instruction on reading and devining one spectators star sign or devining two spectators star signs simultaneously. Personally I love the idea of using the intuition cards for Pre-show as Mark does.

What is taught:
Basic Effect - After testing the participants intuition the performer gives a reading and correctly devines the participants star sign.
Intermediate Effect - After testing the participants intuition the performer gives a reading and correctly devines the participants star sign and date of birth.
Advanced Effect - The performer correctly devines the star signs of two participants.

For what you pay this is a steal. As well as getting the highest possible quality props you get detailed instruction, professional routining and perfect scripting all straight from Mark who has obviously worked this material extensively. All I can say is that this is something that every mentalist who enjoys pure star sign or birthday revelations should have in their repertoire, it truly is a class piece of mentalism.
Pros
-High quality props included
-Simple and easy to do
-Versatile and can be used in a number of different ways
-100% accuracy
Cons
-A little memory work (You have to know the star signs, in order of by heart) however, you have the option of using a crib.
-Some mathematics involved (However these are very basic)

Product Quality: 10
The intuition cards included are designed by Phil Smith and printed by Steve Haresign (Haresign Press) on the thickest business card stock available and then laminated, so they should last you a lifetime with proper care. On top of that they come with a nice, thin plastic carry case which will keep the cards as good as new.
Teaching Quality: 8
I found the instruction sometimes confusing, however I am sure this is not down to Mark’s teaching abilities but rather the mathematical nature of the effect. Mark goes into each aspect in great detail sharing valuable subtleties and nuances.
Overall Rating: 95%
Highly recommended.
