It appears that witches don’t like the fact that Donald Trump is President of the United States. A document is making its rounds among the witch community is asking people who practice the craft to perform a monthly binding ritual until President Trump is removed from office. They believe that in order for the mass spell to work, it must be performed at midnight EST on every waning crescent moon.
The first one is happening on Friday, with similar spell cast events scheduled for March 26, April 24 and May 23 and beyond, until Trump is cast out of office.
Last week, Michael M. Hughes, who writes about the paranormal, posted the spell at ExtraNewsFeed, stressing that a binding spell is different than a curse or hex.
“It’s a restraint, not harm,” Hughes told The Huffington Post. “I see it as self-defense.”
Hughes said he heard that two separate witch groups were planning the spells and asked if he could take it to a wider audience. The spell instructions have gone viral, and there is a group on Facebook dedicated to answering all the questions people may have.
Along with a good deal of dedication, spell casters are including the following items during their rituals:
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
Practitioners are supposed to prepare for by writing “Donald J. Trump” on the orange candle stub with a pin or nail. They then arrange the other items in a circle and lean the Tower card against something so that it’s standing up. Hughes suggests reading the 23rd Psalm aloud before beginning the spell by lighting a white candle.
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
After the spell is read, practitioners are will burn the photo with the orange candle, chanting “So mote it be.” But if that sounds a little too “witchy,” Hughes says a simple “You’re fired!” will also work. To complete the spell, the candle stub or carrot will be buried or discarded in running water.
When the ceremony is over, Hughes says it’s crucial to ground yourself by laughing loud and hearty since, “Trump hates people laughing at him.”
He admits the spell has a satirical element, but insists that “doesn’t invalidate it.”
