A political witch-hunt?


Witch – not quite the real thing, but still a nice picture

It would appear that the Age of Trump has brought upon us a Witchhunt. No, I do not mean that Trump is hunting Mexicans. Nor do I mean he’s hunting down all Muslims. And it is nothing like the Salem Witch trials. Actually, according to the Huffington Post, this time, it is the witches that are doing the hunting!

According to the report, they began on February 24th. What it is they’re doing? Every time we have a “Waning Crescent Moon”, they’re casting a binding spell against Donald Trump. No clue what a Waning Crescent Moon is? No shame there, because neither did I. Basically, it is the bit where half moon turns into new moon. I had to look it up to find out that this happens on February 24th, March 26th, April 24th, May 23rd, June 21st (Summer Solstice!), July 21st, August 19th…and then some). The spell would be cast at Midnight.

Binding spell

The binding spell is actually a good spell. Unlike the spells you’d first think about, such as turning him into a frog, or a stone statue, a binding spell ensures the target is unable to cause harm to anyone. Actually quite a useful spell, considering Donald Trump is at his desk, with that big Red Button nearby. Well, this sure is a turn of American politics I didn’t see coming. Sure, I knew there are still people around who identify themselves as witches. And sure, I knew they don’t really go through life flying on broomsticks and kidnapping children with the aid of their black cat. But I didn’t realize they are this modern, and this engaged with politics. And while I may not believe (or know) much about spells, I do believe that any action which comes from the right intentions is something to be applauded.


The witches intend to be as relentless as they can be, casting the mass spell every month. Without exception. They consider this to be a necessary action out of self-defense.  In order to maximize the power of their spell, they have taken it to facebook, where the page is already liked by 12.575 persons. It is unclear of all of these people are actually going to perform the spell.

The plan is to continue casting the spell, every month, until Donald J. Trump leaves the White House.

It makes me think, couldn’t they do this against some other guys too? Putin? Erdogan? Assad? I’d say the list of targets for such a binding spell is quite long. So, eh…witches…? Please…? Could you guys (and girls) please stop hiding and put your forces into action so we can finally have a little more peace on this planet? That’d really be awesome!

Wanna join?

white candleI am not a witch myself, so I might not be the right guy to talk to if you want to join. But this somewhat obscure website has an extensive guide on how to cast the spell. You will need quite a few things, among which an orange and a white candle, salt, water, a feather, a tarot card, an (unflattering) photo of donald trumb and more. You will need a few more items and then get to the preparation. Once that is all done, you “simply” follow the ritual:


(v. 2.2)

(Light white candle)

Hear me, oh spirits
Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air
Heavenly hosts
Demons of the infernal realms
And spirits of the ancestors

(Light inscribed orange candle stub)

I call upon you
To bind
Donald J. Trump
So that his malignant works may fail utterly
That he may do no harm
To any human soul
Nor any tree
or Sea

Bind him so that he shall not break our polity
Usurp our liberty
Or fill our minds with hate, confusion, fear, or despair
And bind, too,
All those who enable his wickedness
And those whose mouths speak his poisonous lies

I beseech thee, spirits, bind all of them
As with chains of iron
Bind their malicious tongues
Strike down their towers of vanity

(Invert Tower tarot card)

I beseech thee in my name
(Say your full name)
In the name of all who walk
Crawl, swim, or fly
Of all the trees, the forests,
Streams, deserts,
Rivers and seas
In the name of Justice
And Liberty
And Love
And Equality
And Peace

Bind them in chains
Bind their tongues
Bind their works
Bind their wickedness

(Light the small photo of Trump from the flame of the orange candle stub and hold carefully above the ashtray)

(Speak the following loudly and with increasing passion as the photo burns to ashes)

So mote it be!
So mote it be!
So mote it be!

(Blow out orange candle, visualizing Trump blowing apart into dust or ash*)

(Pinch or snuff out the white candle, ending the ritual)

Grounding and Disposal

Afterward, ground yourself by having a good, hearty laugh, jumping up and down, clapping your hands, stomping your feet, and having a bite to eat. Grounding is very important—don’t neglect it. And remember—he hates people laughing at him.

Finally, bury the orange candle stub or discard it at a crossroads or in running water.
