Shall we engage in a bout of Millennial bashing? It’s fine, I fall into the category so I’m allowed to throw shade.
When they’re not eating avos and causing the housing market to collapse (jokes, that was the Boomers – thanks guys), some Millennials are also making time to dabble in witchery.
Take for example Georgia Burns and Harmony Nice, pictured above, who are Wiccans – also known as Pagan Witchcraft.
Yeah, it’s all the rage, according to the Telegraph:
Witchcraft, you see, is becoming more and more fashionable, with thousands of young women (and some men, too) picking up the ancient craft and learning spells in bedrooms across the country. One theory is that the Harry Potter generation has found “real” spell books, but many of this cool new set see parts of it – like gazing into a crystal ball – as a form of mindfulness. And it’s certainly more interesting than yoga.
But being a modern witch isn’t easy. Georgia has had to ask her mum not to vacuum near her altar, in case she accidentally sucks up some magic. While Harmony has a hard time stopping Lucifer from eating her sage. “She loves it,” she says, rolling her eyes.
Lucifer is the cat, in case you are wondering.
We already spoke about those Instagram-famous witches last year, and if you thought these two were in it for the money then oh, you’re probably right.
Harmony’s making cash off her YouTube channel, which boasts more than 260 000 subscribers, and she is also set to bring out a book later this year.
Georgia, on the other hand, is looking to the future:
Georgia [below left] – incredibly petite and slightly gothic-looking with huge eyelash extensions – learnt to read tarot cards from her mother. She grew up as an Irish Catholic, but says she found it controlling, especially towards women.
She is currently reading a book filled with spells to enhance your sex life and become a millionaire. Others – a quick cash potion, strength and safety soup and relationship rescue pie – are more like recipes than spells, and could almost fit into the current foodie trend.
Wiccan cookbook to come soon, I reckon, with a foreword by Gordon Ramsay.
As witchcraft and witchery becomes more popular, so to do the websites that punt its wares:
A whole host of websites as well as fashion, beauty and home products are cropping up to cater for a taste in everything witchy, she adds. Tanya Townley, 27, a white witch from Lancashire, is running one of these new businesses. She launched a subscription box last May, which delivers altarware, incense and crystals for £27 a month.
Since she started, customers have increased by 500 per cent and more than half of them are in the UK (others are based in New Zealand, Brazil and Finland).
