I set the voice of Siri on my i-phone to speak with an Australian accent. I'm multicultural.

What possesses them: why millennials are embracing witchcraft and astrology
Meanwhile, more than half of young adults in the U.S. believe astrology is a science. compared to less than 8% of the Chinese public. The psychic services industry — which includes astrology, aura reading, mediumship, tarot-card reading and palmistry, among other metaphysical services — grew 2% between 2011 and 2016. It is now worth $2 billion annually, according to industry analysis firm IBIS World.

Metaphysical services?
The horror. The horror.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

“Whether it be spell-casting, tarot, astrology, meditation and trance, or herbalism, these traditions offer tangible ways for people to enact change in their lives,” she said. “For a generation that grew up in a world of big industry, environmental destruction, large and oppressive governments, and toxic social structures, all of which seem too big to change, this can be incredibly attractive.”
The point of a good philosophy and/or religion is to change and improve one's self, and to get along with reality as well as possible.

But if a generation is coddled and raised to believe that they are already perfect individuals and the universe owes them happiness, then any discomfort is reality's fault. And so they turn to pagan magicks, going to marches and protests, http://www.newsweek.com/americans-screa ... at the sky, and otherwise imposing their emotions to bring about "the Change."

LOL! "they are already perfect"? How about not fallen - no original sin.
More faith communities, Del. Whether it's a fad or something more permanent will show in time. Most of this was prevalent in the 70's too. But maybe the young will make something more of it. There is a curious spectrum of stuff. Given their interest in spirituality it should surprise us that orthodox religion has failed to connect with these folks.

When I was young and in university I used to socialize with ladies, in the summer, that were involved or interested in astrology and other things (often Celtic in fact) far from my worldview. Initially the discovery that some of them knew the night sky as well or better than I did but had a totally different idea of it all was fascinating. These were not engineers or physics students. Sometimes they were in fine art programs at different schools than mine.

I think the article is mostly sensationalism. I rather doubt that young people are more enthralled with neo-pagan mythologies than previous generations. I remember the '70's well. Lots of jibber-jabber about youths experimenting with oddball spiritualies. I was a young person then.... didn't know anybody who dabbled. But I read about it.

However, you do have a point: The mainstream religions often fail to provide an encounter with the supernatural. They fail to meet the the reality test of a young person who naturally intuits the reality of the supernatural. So he or she becomes an honest pagan -- seeking God through their imagination.
