Studies of "occult" are directly prohibited by the Torah. This does not mean that we do not believe in the possibility of such things, rather that such powers come from the opposite side of kosher and holiness. As such, if sin separates one from G-d, this is directly diving into the pool of separation and the corruption of holiness.
