I have an extra set of Lo Scarabeo's Astrological Oracle and stumbled across a set of antique-looking "fudge dice" from Q Workshop that look promising for selecting a Symbol beautifully!
http://www.amazon.com/Astrological-O...148/aeclectic/
http://www.amazon.com/Q-Workshop-Car...8-4/aeclectic/

The cards have the 12 zodiac signs and 10 planets. I choose 1 sign card, 1 planet card & roll a fudge die to see which of the possible 3 degrees (loosely based on numerology & the decan idea)

Sol 1, 11, 21
Luna 2, 12, 22
Jupiter 3, 13, 23
Uranus 4, 14, 24
Mercurius 5, 15, 25
Venus 6, 16, 26
Neptunus 7, 17, 27
Saturnus 8, 18, 28
Mars 9, 19, 29
Pluto 10, 20, 30

A fudge die has six sides and is marked blank, with a +, and with a -
At the moment, blank is working in the midpoint which makes a + be higher and the - be lower.

Examples:
Cancer, Saturnus, (-) would work out to Cancer 8
Aquarius, Venus, (blank) would work out to Aquarius 16
Sagittarius, Mars, (+) would work out to Sagittarius 29

Lo Scarabeo's 2012 release catalogue has an updated version of the Astrological Oracle! The smaller card size will definitely be easier to handle.
approx. 3.46" by 4.92"
