Donald Trump’s presidency has upset many people thus far and now he has witches out to get him too, casting a spell against him.
Document’s making the rounds among the witching community is asking people who practice witchcraft to perform a monthly binding ritual until the president is removed from office with the Facebook group devoted to the ritual has attracted over 10,500 likes, and coined the hashtag #magicresistance.
In order for the spell to work, the mass spell must be performed at midnight EST on every waning crescent moon with the first one happening last Friday and will be followed by similar spell cast events on March 26, April 24 and May 23 and beyond until the Donald is removed.
Performing the spell takes a good deal of dedication, including amassing the following:
- Unflattering photo of Trump
- Tower tarot card
- Tiny stub of an orange candle or orange carrot
- A pin or small nail (to inscribe candle)
- White candle (any size), representing the element of Fire
- Small bowl of water, representing elemental Water
- Small bowl of salt, representing elemental Earth
- Feather (any), representing the element of Air
- Matches or lighter
- Ashtray or dish of sand
The complete spell can be read here, but some of the lines include:
“Hear me, oh spirits
Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air
Demons of the infernal realms
And spirits of the ancestors
(Light inscribed orange candle stub)
I call upon you
Donald J. Trump
So that he may fail utterly
That he may do no harm
To any human soul
Nor any tree
The writer of the spell said he published details of the spell because he felt “it would be very welcome to a lot of people”.
Under the tenets of witchcraft, a “binding spell” does not wish harm on its target, but aims to stop them from doing harm themselves.
“This is not the equivalent of magically punching a Nazi,” Mr Hughes wrote. “Rather, it is ripping the bullhorn from his hands, smashing his phone so he can’t tweet, tying him up, and throwing him in a dark basement where he can’t hurt anyone.”
MaryPat Azevedo, who took part in the ritual in Arizona, said she saw the ritual as “a unity prayer”.
The development has sparked fury among Christian conservatives, who have accused the witches of “declaring spiritual war”.
So what do you think? Will the witches defeat the Donald?
