The thought of young people practicing witchcraft-like activities 50 years ago would be unimaginable, but in 2018 young people tend to ask you, "What's your sign?" within 5 minutes of a conversation.
Although astrology isn't looked at the same way as witchcraft by most people, it is closer than you might think. Many Catholic churches look at astrology as a "satanic" practice and believe it is witchcraft.
Astrology is actually the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies, interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world.
This practice has become huge in the last few years. More than half of young adults in the U.S. believe astrology is a science. The psychic services industry, which includes astrology, aura readings, medium readings, Tarot card readings and palmistry, and other services grew by 2% between 2011 and 2016. It is now worth $2 billion annually, according to industry analysis firm, IBIS World.
