Witches worldwide are planning to cast a spell on Donald Trump on February 24th.
A document detailing how to cast a spell that would bind Trump to all who abet him has been circulating the web in both private and public witchcraft groups, and even those who don’t regularly practice the craft are seizing the opportunity to use magic to stop the President. There have been marches, petitions, and demonstrations against the Donald Trump, but this is definitely the most magical way to #resist.
The ritual is to be done at the stroke of midnight on waning crescent moon ritual days, which are February 24th (midnight, Friday evening), March 26th, April 24th, May 23rd, June 21st (especially important as it is the summer solstice) etc. until Trump leaves office.
Will it work? Honestly, there is only one way to find out. But hey, you watch didn’t Hocus Pocus a million times for nothing, so here is how to cast a spell on Donald Trump.

1. i need to get tense?
Past present or future tense?…and you think you’re going to stop this simply by ‘pulling a lever’, in a booth, behind a curtain, every 2 years? Know yourself. And if you need help, call the FBI.

2. Either, both, time is fluid.
To clarify, the original document states that this is a binding spell, which seeks to restrain someone from doing harm instead of harming the targeted individual themselves. Binding does not generate the potential negative blowback to the caster’s karma.
So, no worries.

3. I actually had a good discussion
With a practicing wiccan about this. She said even though she hates trump, this binding spell still going against the will of the person who is being bound, and it goes against the wiccan rede of doing no harm. Not to mention that what is done will return to you x3.
Her exact words were “I’m not fucking up my karma for the likes of trump” lolYou can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant. Putin revolution socialism revolution wikileaks anarchist impeach hack overthrow!

5. It as always with spells depends upon the will and intent
Binding as a protective measure is meant to hold back a sword so to speak as opposed to wielding one. Binding spells can harm, but preventing harm via binding or banishing those that would cause harm, merely stays the hand of one that might cause harm, protecting the innocent is not causing harm.
If the ritual was/is designed, and the intent and will used after raising and releasing the energy is not to harm but to defend using means that cause no harm (like illness, injury, or other negative will output) but instead used to stay and bind the will of one that does will harm then there is no way that the rede is broken or disrespected.
Banishing and binding spells are found in all wiccan Grimoires I have been privy to (holding degrees in both Gardnerian and Alexandrian traditions, I have read those within the covens I received those 2nd degree initiations), they are used as protective measures rather than offensive measures and so the x3 I’d expect to be positive considering the potential slaughter of innocents via military might or harm caused by poverty that may be prevented if the will is not to cause harm but rather to protect others from harm.
Banishing negative energy, or binding harmful, especially deadly will is by no means doing harm, it seeks to prevent harm, perhaps your friend is overthinking things a bit.
After an abusive ex stalker of a friend beat her and ignored routinely all efforts via legal restraining orders and continued the stalking and returning to the door, we performed both a banishing and binding ritual that caused no harm to the abuser yet protected the abused, the offender in question ended up moving away at the request of a cousin to another state to help work within his business venture, our directed will was not to harm the abuser (tempting though that might have been), but rather to protect the abused and therefore was used properly under the guidance and law of the rede.
As another poster said, opinions differ, but if the will and intent (the driving force that directs any energy raised by a ritual) is not the will to harm but to protect, her “karma” is quite safe I assure you, even if she fails to comprehend the importance of will and intent regarding the rede.
For those unfamiliar I will post the short version, generally accepted by most Wiccans I am aware of.
Bide the Wiccan Law ye must,
In perfect love, in perfect trust.Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill:
An ye harm none, do as ye will.
And ever mind the Rule of Three:
What ye send out, comes back to thee.
Follow this with mind and heart,
And merry ye meet, and merry ye part.
For those more interested, my favorite long version
The Rede of the Wiccae
(The Counsel Of The Wise Ones)
Bide the Wiccan Law ye must,In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust;
Live ye must and let to live,
Fairly take and fairly give.
True in love, ever be,
Lest thy love be false to thee.
With a fool no season spend,
Nor be counted as his friend.
Soft of eye and light of touch,
Speak ye little, listen much.
Ever mind the rule of three,
What ye send out comes back to thee.
This lesson well, thou must learn
Ye only get what ye do earn.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill –
An it harm none, do as ye will.
Deosil go by waxing Moon,
Sing and dance the invoking Rune;
Widdershins go by waning Moon,
Chant ye then a freeing tune;
When the Lady’s Moon is new,
Kiss thy hand to Her times two;
When the Bow rides in the eve
Turn to what you would achieve;
When the Moon rides at her peak,
Then thy heart’s desire seek;
When the Sickle shows Her face
Release the old with proper grace.
Greet the Days and greet the Nights
With joy and thanks for all delights.
Sing the seasons all around
Til wondrous awe and love abound
Heed the North wind’s mighty gale,
Lock the door & trim the sail;
When the wind comes from the South,
Love will kiss thee on the mouth;
When the wind blows from the West,
Hearts will find their peace and rest;
When the wind blows from the East,
Expect the new and set the feast.
Nine woods in the Cauldron go,
Burn them quick and burn them slow;
Grape and fir and apple tree,
And Hawthorn are sacred to Thee,
Willow, hazel, rowan, birch,
And oak will guide your every search;
Elder be the Lady’s tree –
Burn it not or cursed ye’ll be.
Birchwood in the fire goes
To tell us true what Goddess knows.
Oak trees tower great with might,
Burn the Oak for God’s insight.
Rowan is a tree of power
Causing life and magick to flower.
Willows at the waters stand
To help us to the Summerland.
Hawthorn burn to purify
And draw the faerie to your eye.
Hazel tree, the wisdom sage,
Lends strength that comes with honoured age.
White the flowers of Apple tree,
The holy gift of fecundity.
Grape grows upon the fruitful vine,
Sacred gifts of joy and wine.
Fir’s ever greenness declares life
Succeeds beyond any strife.
Heed ye flower, bush, and tree,
And by the Lady Blessed be.
Where the rippling waters flow
Cast a stone and truth ye’ll know;
Four times the Major Sabbats mark
In the light and in the dark:
As the old year starts to wane
The new begins with dark Samhain.
When flowers blossom through the snow
Fair Brighid casts her seed to sow.
When winter yields to warmth’s return
Let the Beltane fires burn.
As summer turns to Lammas night
First fruits and Grain Gods reach their height.
Four times the Minor Sabbats fall
Use the Sun to mark them all:
At Yuletide, with feast and mirth
We celebrate the God Child’s birth.
Spring Equinox, Eostara’s fest,
All newborn creatures will be blessed.
When the Sun has reached its height
Celebrate the greatest Light.
Offer thanks at second reaping;
Mabon poised for winter’s sleeping.
Cast the circle thrice about,
To keep unwelcome spirits out.
To bind the spell well every time,
Let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Follow this with mind & art,
Bright the cheeks and warm the heart,
And merry meet & merry part
And merry meet again!
“We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.” Thurgood Marshall

6. Have the right wing religious wackjobs heard about this yet?
Because you know whose name they always drag into it when the Witches start talking!Fuck Trump, and fuck anybody who defends him. He has proven himself to be a threat to all life on Earth.
