Join the Magic Resistance. Bind Trump.

Join the Magic Resistance. Bind Trump. October 28, 2017

I participated in the ritual to bind Trump from doing evil, and it felt amazing.

For those anti-pagans checking out this post, don’t forget about the millions of Christians who prayed for Obama’s ‘days to be few,’ under Psalm 109:8.   It’s not dissimilar.  We’re simply praying in our own way. 

This year has been a hard one.  Not only have we seen the swearing in of a racist, misogynist, anti-science, rainbow-phobic president, but we saw the election of several other extremely conservative members of congress and the illogical appointment of heads of agencies as well.  Politics lately seem to have played out like a worst-case scenario, or the beginning of the apocalypse.

It’s no wonder a group of witches has gotten together to bind Trump from doing evil. With the KKK openly marching in the streets, backlashes against the feminist demand for respect and rights to their own bodies, with the detainment or deportation of immigrants, healthcare on its deathbed, threats to trans and other LGBQs, and a president with one finger on the nuclear button and the other thumbing out a bullying tweet to North Korea… what’s a witch going to do?  Sit on their hands?  

All over the world, at the same time, over 30,000 witches, brujas, and pagans cast a variation of a binding spell.  It’s always at the stroke of midnight, eastern standard time, on the night when the moon is at its tiniest sliver.  It’s at the banishing phase of the moon, the get rid of it moon, the demolish and deconstruct so we can start anew moon.

This is nothing new.  It’s been happening since February 2017.

At one time, I had reservations about performing this ritual.  I’d never taken part in a binding spell.  I’m a bit of a ‘light witch,’ preferring to heal and move on rather than interfere with someone else’s energy.  But Trump has crossed so many lines.  He has torn families apart and is basically attempting to reverse civil rights achievements.  I felt I had to do this.  I needed to channel my fury and rage toward destroying Trump’s massive abuse of power.  It was time to take part in the magical resistance.

Other witches and pagans also expressed hesitancy about the binding spell, including John Beckett.  He brings up some very good points, including the simplicity of the spell and a warning for beginners, even though he mentions he supports the movement.

Other pagans and Wiccans were confused about the concept of working with ‘angels and demons’ (link below), maybe because most of us don’t believe in demons, or think they’re dark magic with a potential for chaos and harm.

Of course, there’s a simple way to go around the demons – simply don’t name them in your ritual.  You can (and should) make each ritual your own, just like a chef includes his or her own combination of ingredients to make the perfect dish.  Just because one chef uses coriander doesn’t mean you have to as well.  I left the demons out of the spell.

This spell is not for everyone.  However, if your family may be in danger of being deported, if you’re afraid he’ll interfere with your body and your reproductive rights, or if you’re afraid he’ll continue to see ‘violence on both sides’ rather than see nazis as terrorists, this spell may be for you.  Hell, if you feel any sympathy for any of those groups, or if you despise Trump for other reasons, you might want to join in.

Before beginning, I read the original open source script, which is highly suitable for solitary witches.  My version of the script is below in italics.

I performed some preparatory work, including writing Trump’s name on an ugly yellowish candle, finding the Tower card from my most powerful deck, and retrieving a spool of black thread. I wanted to do the thread-binding variation of the spell, as I didn’t want to work with a photo of Trump. As a highly sensitive witch, I can’t even look at him without feeling a little insane.

At the appointed date and time, I lit a big white candle and cast my circle with the directions, calling upon my favorite righteous warrior goddesses that I’ve worked with.





I also hailed the spirits who would aid and protect me in my work.  

Hear me, oh spirits Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air Heavenly hosts… and spirits of the ancestors

I lit the ugly yellow candle, signifying Trump.

I call upon you, goddesses, protectors, and spirits, 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.

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!

I could feel a well of anger rising within me.  It had been brewing for over a year.  I inverted the tower card and felt the power shifting, turning.

I beseech thee in my name and in the name of all who walk, crawl, swim, or fly; in the name 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!

I blew out the yellow candle, and imagined Trump’s power blowing out.  Then I picked up the spool of black thread and wound it around the yellow candle.  I knotted it as I repeated over and over,


My energy spiked, but my anger felt bound to the candle. I spoke with increasingly commanding recitations.

So mote it be.

So MOTE it BE.


I raised my hands to the ceiling and pushed the energy out and away.  It flowed away from me like a shock wave.  When it left, I felt so exhilarated.  I had to focus on my breathing to ground.

When I felt more down-to-earth, I closed each quarter of my circle, thanking my goddesses and protectors with all my heart.

Afterward, I giggled and danced a little.  Vibrant excitement still rushed through my veins.  I never imagined I’d feel so light and happy performing what I considered to be gray magic.

But therein lies the rub.  Who cares about a little gray magic if it helps to prevent something more terrible from happening?  People always say if they had a time machine, they’d kill Hitler.  What if I told you that your magic could prevent another fascist dictator?

Of course, voting during every election will help more. But if you believe in energy and you want to make a positive change in politics, you might want to join me and thousands of other people for the next binding ritual.

I can not promise that my associates won’t use this to attempt to harm Trump.  I can only speak for myself.  I will not perform any ritual to harm him.  All of my rituals are about preventing him from doing harm to others.

    The problem is with the numbers:
    US Pop: 323,000,000
    Christians 70.6%: 228,038,000
    1/2 P.T. -Voters: 114,019,000
    Pagan 0.4%: 1,292,000

    You have 114 million Christians praying for Trump on a daily basis, and whether or not any deity is even listening to any of us, all these faithful people are putting their intentions out to the universe on an almost daily bases… if not many times a day , or at least on a weekly basis at church. Christian pray for the health of our country and leadership as a daily ritual. …and whether or not you agree with their beliefs, their intention is still being put forth.

    So placing a binding on President Trump once every month seems very small and petty in comparison to the daily devotion that at least 30% of our county is doing for President Donald John Trump. And if you follow politics and the news like i do, it seem like biblical scripture is being fulfilled from the “prayers of the faithful”.

    No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
    And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
    You shall condemn.
    This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
    And their righteousness is from Me,”
    Says the Lord.

    I know i am going to be labeled a “the advisory” for posting this, but my concern isn’t whether or not “The Donald” can be bound, i don’t think he can, but for the spiritual health for us as a whole. We should only do good works in waking people up to being more then just animals, raising our consciousness as a whole to truly be able to move in to the coming age of Aquarius. if Aquarius gets here and we have not evolved, it will be hell on earth. Industrial hell… literally

    Peace be with you and thank you for the articles you contribute. I might not always agree, but i do enjoy the read.

      I do not fear the christians; their magics are hollow and full of corruption like a fallen log whose inner flesh is gone. I oppose him in other ways than magick too, I uphold the good as I can. But it is not in me to tolerate the existence of Donald Trump in my world, and though it kill me to do it, I will call disease and death to take away his sanity, his strength, and his breath. Such a beast as he cannot be ignored or given free reign. I only wish I could have done more and sooner.

    I trust my own power. I committed shortly after Trump became President to implant a tumour on his brain, a tumour born from and fed by the evil and sickness in his brain, turning moral corruption into physical corruption. I have patiently grown the tumour over these numerous months from a tiny black dot on the bottom of his frontal lobe to a dark substantial mass that is beginning now to exercise its dreadful effects. His own vile corruption will kill him but if there is any harm in return, I accept it without hesitation and consider it a price well paid. Trump is an abomination. Come thou dark and deathly mass, thou vortex of evil become illness and corruption. Come now and spread thy doom across the flesh of Donald Trump. Bring madness and insanity, yes, but bring death at last to this beast; bring him down in piteous shame and ruin, but stop his breath and still his heart ere you have done with him. I summon thee yet from the vile dark shadows of his soul to manifest within him and consume him. So be it by the powers of four and in the name of the ancients that I whisper to thee but will not here write down.
