Lana Del Rey Tried to Cast a Spell on Trump
If you are one of Lana’s notoriously die-hard, intense fans, then you’re more than familiar with the nihilistic singer’s passion for the dark arts. If you’ve but merely listened to her songs, then you’ve most likely noticed her signature gloomy, dark tone in her melodies, lyrics and vocals.
So, it’s no surprise to any of us that Lana decided to participate in large scale a hex on Donald Trump. On February 24, it was reported that witches around the globe were planning to cast a spell the president, with a Facebook page entitled “Mass Spell to Bind Donald Trump Feb. 24,” inviting people to participate in the ritual, which is meant to be repeated throughout 2017 on every waning crescent moon. The ritual is known in the witch community as a ‘binding spell,’ which as Elle reported is a ritual “pretty standard magic working, binding Trump from doing harm to others and to himself, rather than asking any forces to do harm to him.”
On the same day, the singer hinted at her own participation in the hex to her followers, in her own mysterious, eerie, Lana way.

These ingredients she speaks of, which include an unflattering picture of Trump, the Tower tarot card, and an orange candle, among others, along with all the information regarding the ritual and its procedure, can be found in a comprehensive document posted in the “Bind Trump (Official)” Facebook page. The next hex is scheduled for August 19 at 11:59pm, in case you were wondering. Check out one witch’s ritual photo:
When asked whether she had actually participated in the hex in an in-depth interview with NME, Lana classically responded, “Yeah, I did it. Why not? Look, I do a lot of shit.” Well, we can’t deny that.
“I’m in line with Yoko and John and the belief that there’s a power to the vibration of a thought. Your thoughts are very powerful things and they become words, and words become actions, and actions lead to physical changes. I really do believe that words are one of the last forms of magic and I’m a bit of a mystic at heart,” she added.
Leave it to Lana to join forces with the witches, and to communicate the power of magic.
