Harmless hobby or Satan praise?

As a Catholic member of this institution, I am very surprised that The Observer prints a daily horoscope. The Catechism of the Catholic Church clearly states that all forms of divination are to be rejected: Recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to ‘unveil’ the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time … They contradict the honor, respect and loving fear that we owe to God alone?
In my opinion, reading your daily horoscope can been seen as a sort of “gateway drug” into the dangerous world of fortune telling. It only takes a seemingly ‘harmless thing like this for the devil to get a toehold on you. You may think that the horoscope is just fun or amusing, but really it’s a dangerous demon tool that is offensive to God. And so I beg you readers of Observer, beware! Do not tempt yourself by reading your horoscope or before long the devil will ensnare you with his demonic witchcraft!
