WITCHES JOIN FORCES FOR TRUMP SPELL
By: Laura Bolt
Are you ready to join the #magicresistance? Then anoint your candles and cast your circles, witches are banding together to cast a spell against President Trump tomorrow, February 24th. As we’ve seen for months now, the occult community (and witches in particular) are becoming an active voice of political dissent, and this new “Bind Trump” spell fits right in with the kinds of magickal protests that we saw throughout the campaign. Tomorrow’s spell, which takes place at midnight, is making the rounds online, with a Facebook group dedicated to connecting cross country witches. The aim of the spell is to bind Trump to those who abet him, neutralizing his power. There’s an open source guide online (which recommends supplies like white and orange candles, a feather, a picture of Trump, and a Tower tarot card) detailing the spell, but it can be adapted to fit various personal practices and traditions. According to the organizers, the spell is “based on the template that underlies every functional magic system, from ancient Egyptian to contemporary chaos practices…. this is not the equivalent of magically punching a Nazi; 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.” Rituals begin tomorrow, and will be repeated during every crescent moon. So mote it be.
