Zodiac Deluxe (Zodiak Exclusiv) by Tony Lackner

(c. 1988,1994) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

What a rare beauty this item is from the great German Craftsman Tony Lackner. If you are a fan of his Hand of Cleopatra or his Wandering Mummies you will love this item. This is the Deluxe version c. 1994 Zodiak Exklusiv and it is a better quality version of the earlier release called Zodiak Erganzung c. 1988.

It uses the same types of materials and is beautifully made. The disc will mysteriously reveal their freely chosen symbol every time.

Effect: A round platform is displayed which has the signs of the zodiac carved around it. In the center is a hub with two wheels that turn freely. The larger wheel has a pointer which can be turned to any of the zodiac signs. The smaller wheel has a window which displays a number from one to twelve. When this dial is turned the number in the window changes.

A spectator is handed a set of cards which have the zodiac symbols printed on them. They are told to remove any one (no force) and place the card face down on the table aside from the others. The performer turns around and explains to the audience that there is a mysterious connection between math and astrology. He attempts to illustrate using the dials on the apparatus. He shows how the outer dial turns freely. He then asks the spectator to turn the smaller dial and notice how the numbers in the window change. The spectator then turns the dial to any number they want. Again, no force.

The performer then asks the spectator to move the larger dial one space at a time, counting off the number of spaces using their freely selected number. When done, the dial now points to a sign of the zodiac. The spectator is told for the first time to turn over their freely selected card. Amazingly, the card matches the zodiac sign to which the dial now points to!

    I don’t think there is a nice magic device that Andy doesn’t own or at least can describe.

    I started doing magic in 1977, but lost all interest around 1990. Do not ask me why – I do not know myself. On November 11, 2019, on the day of St. Martin, I started again from scratch, because I had given away all the magic utensils and a wall full of books in 2006. In the meantime I have all the beautiful pieces again, including from Tony Lackner the Hand of Cleopatra, the Wandering Mummy and Zodiac Deluxe; only the Mummy Garden I no longer have, but since it never worked completely clean, I do not miss it further.

    Until 1990 I had published about 40-50 tricks in Werry’s “Magische Welt”, which was taken over after his death by the magician Wittus, well known in Germany. Since the end of 2019, I have invented over 250 tricks, including many small ones, but also a few really good ones, without being immodest.

    I am very glad that Andy runs the wonderful website “Martin’s Magic”, it is always very helpful to me.
    Among his magic devices there are “toys”, as some magicians mischievously call them, but also quite fantastic tricks. And Zodiak Exclusiv is one of them.
