Witches (not necessarily wicked ones) teamed up all over the United States on February 24 to cast a spell on President Donald Trump. They teamed up to cast a “binding spell” in the hopes that the energy they sent out into the universe would send Trump (and all those that abet him) packing right out of the White House.
Friday’s ritual was just the first in a series of binding spells that are set to take place throughout the year. The ritual is to be performed on midnight during each crescent moon. The next spells will be cast on March 26, April 24, May 23 and June 21st. The last one is set to be the most important spell since it will be the summer solstice.
A binding spell is not to be confused with a hex or a curse, which are meant to cause harm to the person in question. The purpose of the binding spell is to prevent someone from causing harm to others. If you want to join in on the next spell, don’t fear any karmic repercussions.
A lot of ingredients go into a binding spell. First off, you need an unflattering photo of Trump. The one with his massive chin will do, as he apparently hates it more than anything. You need a small orange candle, a white candle, a small bowl of salt, an ashtray full of ash, etc. You can get the full list of components here. The tower tarot card is essential. Perhaps to get Trump to tumble from his tower?
Before you cast the spell, you need to do somethings to protect yourself. One site recommends you say a blessing prayer to ward off bad karma. The 23rd Psalm “The Lord is my shepherd, I will not want,” will work just fine.
You also need to prepare some of your components. You need to lean the tower card against something so it is standing up. You also need to carve “Donald J. Trump” on the orange candle with a needle.
People participating in the spell took to social media with the #BindTrump to share their setups for the binding spell. This person looks like they’re all ready for the binding spell. But, her tower card should be standing up. You’ve got to have it right if you want him out of office! Get it together, people!
This person seems to have a more advanced set up. It looks like they even have a voodoo doll. The sage may be for afterwards to clean out any potential bad karma. Don’t ask me what the avocado is for. I was not aware that they had any magical powers, but then again, I’m no witch.
The following is the incantation. You can add your own twist to the words, though. Apparently, some took issue with the “So mote it be,” for being too Wiccan related. Instead, you can say “Let it be,” or “Amen.”
Hear me, oh spirits Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air Heavenly hosts Demons of the infernal realms And spirits of the ancestors
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 Animal Rock Stream or Sea
You can’t expect an announcement of a mass spell on Donald Trump without getting some of his supporters riled up. The site Christian Nationalism called all followers of Christ to perform a counter prayer on February 24 to protect Donald Trump from the binding curse.
Trump supporters also took to social media to slam the witches curse.
11. Binding Spell Countered By Prayer At Trump Tower
On midnight this past Friday, a group of “witches” gathered outside Trump Tower to perform the binding ritual. They did have one angry Christian mystic, by the name of Donna, perform a counter prayer. She shouted her prayer while holding a mirror to the witches so that their spell can be reflected back on them.
This isn’t the first time in U.S. history that witches gathered to “protest” the government. In 1967, anti-Vietnam War activists gathered in Washington D.C. to “exorcise and levitate the Pentagon.” The protestors believed their “exorcism” had a secondary effect in ending the war.
It seems unlikely that Trump was impacted in the slightest by this massive binding spell. It seems much more likely that he was having a good chuckle over the whole thing. But according to the binding spell’s Facebook page, these people think that Trump declining to attend the White House correspondents’ dinner had something to do with the spell.
