Please help me find a way to explain to my 7th grade students why the daily horoscope is a bad idea for them. The issue came up today in a discussion in class and I was only just starting to address is when the bell rang. One student insisted that reading horoscopes “as entertainment only” was not a problem. The same student claimed that using Ouiji boards or Tarot cards could also be “just for fun,” and when I disagreed just shook their heads as me. I believe this is dangerous ground, the proverbial “slippery slope.” I know that Scripture tells us to avoid witchcraft/sorcery etc., and its trappings, and also to fill our minds with those things which a pure and true and good.
Thanks for your input
