Donald Trump’s presidency has cast a pall over the nation, so now witches are casting a spell against him.
A document making its rounds among the witch community is asking people who practice the craft to perform a monthly binding ritual until the president is removed from office.
In order to work, the mass spell must be performed at midnight EST on every waning crescent moon.
The first one is happening on Friday and will be followed by similar spell cast events on March 26, April 24 and May 23 and beyond.
Unless, of course, Trump is cast out of office before then.
Michael M. Hughes, who writes about the paranormal, posted the spell at ExtraNewsFeed last week.
He stressed 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.
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
