I think it's time to call an exterminator.

Or an exorcist. })

i once heard from my friend, that her friend had bought a tarot card deck, and whenever she wants to do a reading, the cards will move by itself to shuffle....
you know, just move round and round on the table, by themselves!....
actually is that possible to happen?

I've had this happen with the Vampire Deck, but that would be the excessively shiny cardstock.

Otherwise I have no idea.

Static Electricity

The build up can be in either the cards or on the surface you lay them on. I have had it happen both on a slick surface, and with slick cards on a cloth.

I like that static electricity idea, Ghostbusters. So far my cards have behaved themselves and if they didn't I'd probably talk to someone about doing some sort of cleansing in my whole house, not with Spic 'n Span or Lysol either. Smudging and sweeping out strange energies with sage or cedar or something appropriate. 

Suriel  01 May 2004 
just asking....
could it be postive energies? such as your spirit guide? or higher spirit is helping you?
i'm thinking of the possibilties....

meanwhile, on planet earth.....

I subscribe to either the theory of static electricity or possibly an AC vent. However, barring those two, I would not discount the possiblity of, as has been suggested, a spirit guide or a resident energy in your home. If you are of a persuasion which leads you to casting circles for ritual, you may have inadvertently attracted an energy form or spirit which has decided to hang out for a while. If this is the case you can either try to work with it or to "release it" from your home with ritual cleansing/smudging etc. Though it is very rare to encounter such things, they are possible, and I have seen such things in action in the past which is why I won't discount it in your case ;) but, again, I would look FIRST to mundane possibilities, then to spiritual.

Some of my most slippery cards have this very very smooth polish and it doesn't take much for them to slip out of a bag, toss themselves off a smooth table or cascade like a waterfall of delicate tiles out of my hands. Anything slightly tilted away or toward me shows it's bent with the slippery cards.

A smooth but not shiny piece of cotton or a slightly textured placemat might help.

I rather keep my cards settled....

Just an idea and suggestion, hope it helps.

I've had the sensation of slippery cards going everywhere, the Frouds Faery Oracle jumps to mind, that slid all over when I first opened the box and began handling them.

Mostly, this was due to the gloss of the cards, and the fact that the cards weren't "worked in" yet with shuffles to bend the cards and give them better shape.

When they're brand new, they're all factory cut, so to speak. Uniform, and they can slide easily against each other.

Other than that, static electricity sounds like another likely culprit.
