Witch season provides a deep look into the millennial mindset

October is upon us, and with it the beginning of the pre-Halloween media season — for magic, the occult, witchcraft and, not least, the final season premiere of “American Horror Story,” TV’s homage to the slasher films of the 1980s. 

But the truth is we have been in an extended season for witches since at least the election of Donald Trump. The “witch aesthetic,” which features transgressive makeup and Goth-inflected fashion, is a counterculture look that says #resistance.

But the witch trend also says something more profound about the current generation’s ideas about glamour and our dependence on technology to fashion selves we can identify with and love.
