from the top of the right hand packet and place under the LEFT hand packet. Again push off a few cards from the top of the "left hand packet and place under the right hand packet. Then push off a few cards from the top of the right hand packet and place under the left hand packet. Repeat this several times and finally drop either half on top of the other half.
Have the spectator cut them a few times. You then fan them faces up to show they are well mixed. Say, "There are a few bunched together here but we'll soon remedy that. " As you run through the pack locate the only spot where a Square and a Star are together. Cut the pack at this point and the pack is as it was at the start.
Spectator is then instructed to deal off four cards face down onto the table. He is then requested to deal one for himself from off the remaining cards in his hand. He may take it from either the top or the bottom of the pack, as he prefers. This card he places aside from the others, in a separate pile. He is then asked to deal four more on top of the first four that he dealt and again deal one for himself, from either the top or the bottom of the packet. This is done three more times, making five in all, at which time the spectator has a pile of five Symbols, face down, on the table. The others are pushed aside.
The Prediction is then read and as it is being read the spectator takes his packet and places each card face up on the table.
The Prediction should read something like the following: "You will deal yourself a Star, a Wavy Lines, a Cross, another Star and a Circle. "
If the routine explained above is followed the effect works for itself and the spectator will deal himself two Stars, a Wavy Lines, a Cross and a Circle.
