Deuteronomy 4:19 (NIV): And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.

Re: All hallows even.

The whole occult world is ripe for satire as so much of what goes on can seem quite silly. The trickiest thing about being a part of that world, as I see it, is maintaining a balance between the serious aspect of it and the funny aspect. If you aren't somehow grounded in consensual reality and can't balance that reality with the magical you will quickly slip off into the deep end. Occultist who take themselves very seriously are quite likely mad. I remember a little story a lawyer witch told about sitting in a park watching a sparrow and trying to influence it with his mind. The bird responded by taking a shit. If you can't get comfortable with that reality and the limitations of what can be accomplished in occult ways, you should probably just become a Mormon or a Baptist.

Issac Bonewitz has a fine definition of magic that encompasses the quirky way it actually works: "A collection of rule-of -thumb techniques designed to get one's psychic talents to do more or less what one wants more often than not, one hopes"
