Lana Del Rey wants you to fight Trump with witchcraft
Since November 8, millions of people have decided to #Resist Trump in some way shape or form. The biggest problem thus far is nobody can really decide what the best way to do that really is. So far, various options have included constant tweeting, pointing out every hypocritical statement Trump makes in the hope that one will eventually send him back to the dimension from which he came, and shopping. None of this has had a noticeable effect just yet. We’re not out of options, though. Have you considered witchcraft? Lana Del Rey certainly has.
The singer tweeted out a cryptic message Thursday night that included the dates February 24, March 26, April 24 and May 23. The tweet also informed readers that “Ingredients can b found online.”
At the stroke of midnight
Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23
Ingredients can b found online

Usually when an artist tweets out some dates it means a new album is dropping or they’re going on tour. People were quick to realize, however, that these dates correspond to “waning crescent moon ritual dates.” Combine that with the knowledge that witches were planning on casting a binding spell against Trump on February 24, and it sure as hell seems like Del Rey is endorsing an occult attack on the president. Just to make things perfectly clear, a spokesperson for Del Rey confirmed to Pitchfork that yes, she was indeed tweeting about witchcraft.
The spell calls for Trump to “fail utterly,” and “do no harm / To any human soul / Nor any tree / Animal / Rock / Stream / or Sea.” The spell also calls to bind “all those who enable his wickedness.”
If this is something that interests you, well, you already missed the first one. Don’t worry, though, because they’re going to keep doing this on the specified dates until Trump is “driven from office.” That has not happened yet, in case you were wondering. The summer solstice ritual is supposed to be the most effective.
Here’s what you’ll need if you wanna participate the next time around:
- Unflattering photo of Trump (so basically any photo of him)
- Tower tarot card
- Tiny stub of an orange candle or baby carrot
- Pin or small nail
- White candle
- Small bowl of water
- Small bowl of salt
- Matches or lighter
- Ashtray or dish of sand
Optional items include fools gold, sulfur, and black thread. I am not a witch, and I don’t want to tell you how to go about your business, but just be aware that sulfur smells like rotten eggs.
The best of luck to all who participate. Not sure it’s gonna work, but it can’t possibly hurt.
