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.

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

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
