As the Bible says, evil spirits are active in astrology, some types of fortune-telling or soothsaying, mediums, the occult, etc.

Listen to the ads on TV and you will soon hear an invitation to call 
some real psychics for advice. Open most newspapers and you can 
easily find the astrology section. You may know someone who has 
played with a ouija board and received a chilling prediction. Evil 
spirits like to make the pointer on a ouija board move as they spell out 
answers to questions. Playing with Ouija boards, Tarrot cards, etc, seems
to open one up to demon possession. Maybe you even know someone who is a 
medium or practices witchcraft. Satan and his demons are real and they 
are very active today.

According to the Bible, angels and evil spirits are real. Satan, also 
called Lucifer, or the Devil, is the leader of the evil spirits. All 
evil spirits were originally good angels created by God. However, 
about a third of the angels chose to become evil. They decided to 
follow Lucifer, a very powerful angel, in a rebellion against God. 
Isaiah 14:12-15. Ezekiel 28:12-17. Luke 10:18. Revelation 12:3-9. 
Jude 6, 9. 2nd Peter 2:4.

Satan of course was powerless against God. 1st John 4:4. 
Matthew 28:18. He was thrown out of heaven. Satan is now the false 
God of this world. 2nd Corinthians 4:4. Most people on earth choose
to follow Satan to destruction instead of following God to eternal 
life. Matthew 7:13-14.

Ben Alexander, who is now a Christian, used to be a spiritualist 
medium. At one time, he thought he was receiving messages from the 
dead. He now knows the messages were from evil spirits the Bible 
calls familiar spirits. Familiar spirits are evil spirits who 
are familiar with the deceased. They easily imitate the dead. Ben's 
book "Out from Darkness" is available from College Press Box 1132 
Joplin MO 64802. His book was $9.99 plus postage and handling.

"Dorothy Story" # 1427 is the real story about a lady who became
involved in the occult. Evil spirits created disturbances in 
her house, and made appearances to some individuals. The spirits
tried to get her to kill herself. Dorthy practiced astral projection, 
telekinesis, automatic writing, etc. In time an evil spirit began to 
torment her. She received help when she cried to God for help. 
Finally she called upon Jesus to save her. 
Be careful of the movies you and your children see and the games they 
play. Some kids might become interested in witchcraft after watching or reading 
the Harry Potter movies or books or playing with Yu-Gi-Oh or Magic Cards. 
Rather then just banning them as evil, I favor discussing them with your kids 
and explaining why you are afraid of them. You don't want them to get 
involved with evil spirits via witchcraft, sorcerery, fortune-telling, etc.

Here are some scriptures on the occult:

Ephesians 6:12= As Christians our fight is not against humans but 
against powerful spiritual beings of evil.
2nd Corinthians 11:14-15= Satan and his angels can appear as angels 
of righteousness and light.

heaven. Why? Because they do not obey God.

mediums and familiar spirits.
Leviticus 19:31= Stay away from mediums and familiar spirits.

being a medium are all terrible sins to God.
Leviticus 20:27= In the (OT) Old Testament, mediums or those with 
familiar spirits were to be stoned. (Their called familiar spirits 
because these evil spirits are familiar with the dead. Thus they can 
imitate the dead.)
1st Samuel 28:3-25= King Saul asked the medium at En Dor to bring up 
the prophet Samuel who was dead.

interpretation secret from the King's astrologers, magicians or dream 
interpreters, and soothsayers. However, he revealed it to his 
prophet Daniel.
Acts 16:16-18= A girl was possessed by an evil spirit that enabled 
her to be a fortune-teller. Paul commanded the evil spirit to come 
out of her in the name or authority of Jesus. The evil fortune 
telling spirit left her.

and stars. 
Deuteronomy 17:2-5= In the OT those who worshipped the sun, moon, or 
stars were to be stoned.
