magic items arranged on table for witchcraft
Witches are organizing online, trying to hex the Taliban.

Witchcraft has long been harnessed as a force for change. With its deep and storied history (and one not short of controversy) witchcraft and Wiccan beliefs continue to have a strong presence even today.

Time to add a new chapter to the story: spellcraft specifically targeting the Taliban. An online community has been organizing to use magick as a force to combat Taliban fighters who now control the majority of Afghanistan, following the U.S. withdrawal from the country. 

Hexing the Taliban

Organized primarily on the social media website Reddit and the online chat client Discord, witches from across the globe are turning their sights on the oppressive Islamic group. 

The idea for an anti-Taliban mass-hexing came when a user posted on Reddit about organizing such an event shortly after the fall of Kabul.

Users called for “protection and blessings for women, girls, journalists, interpreters and the innocent now trapped with the Taliban at the door.” Although the idea caught on quickly, another post warned about the possible dangers of hexing the Taliban, arguing that they “are very spiritually aware and they routinely take steps to dispel, ward off, and weaken magick. They have incantations and rituals of their own which can at the very least neutralize us - at worst can cause damage to our spiritual selves.”

The anti-Taliban witches ultimately moved to a private platform, Discord, to cut down on trolls, where they now share different spells and sigils that they believe will hurt the Taliban and help protect young women in Afghanistan. 

They want to make clear that they’re not anti-Allah, or any other God for that matter. One user said that there’s “no fighting any figures from any of the Abrahamic religions,” and that “Contrary to popular belief we don’t want to put Allah in a Faraday Cage.” They merely want to keep people safe from religious extremists, and are doing what they can to help a worthy cause.

Rise of the Witches

It's not the first time the Wiccan community has harnessed magick to fight a perceived threat. You might remember a group of witches that fought MAGA with magic, hexing Donald Trump by casting spells and burning mini-effigies of the former president in an effort to limit his power and ultimately remove him from office. While the jury’s still out on whether or not they were successful (they say yes, and point to President Trump’s impeachments, loss in the 2020 election, and positive COVID-19 diagnosis as proof),

Witchcraft has been on an ascent in the last few years, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. These beliefs can be particularly appealing to women and LGBTQ people, who often feel ostracized or unwelcome in traditionally-patriarchal faiths.

It should be no surprise, then, that these individuals are focusing their energy on helping other persecuted and marginalized individuals. They even came out in full force last summer in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, uniting (virtually) to hex the police and the individuals responsible for George Floyd’s death. As a historically persecuted minority themselves, witches are largely empathetic towards social justice causes.

One popular TikTok user who identifies as a witch explained that “witches or practitioners are using [their] power to help aid in healing and protecting people of color, or anyone affected. Some witches are also taking advantage of this great energy to hex the oppressors.”

Many witches view their hexes as no different than Christian prayer. After all, it’s a community of like-minded people, organizing their thoughts to affect positive change in the world. Is it really that different from a church full of Christians, bowing their heads as a pastor leads them in prayer?

    As a witch, I have done spellwork for protection. I also have done spellwork for "justice" in the form of binding and mirror spells.

    Hexing when there are more powerful forces at work. Yes, this does work. Sometimes slowly, sometimes fast. Depends on the situation.

    The Taliban need a good hexing. They are chaos energy, but not for creative changes. Evil needs to be stopped. Every witch can do this. Joining the energy to move them out, and holding the energy, to keep them out. So, mote it be

      I'm not seeing much success, in fact none at all, in your witchery spells for healing children of cancer. Have any of you gone to a children's hospital and used your "supposed" healing magick to cure any children of late?

      I'm sorry, but you self deluded guys are as fake and unconvincing as those who claim there is a god as they talk to walls, floors, and ceilings, under the very misguided belief that a deity is listening and will respond, and is even interested.

      So you guys with the "Blessed be" "So Mote it be" "Hail Mary" "Amen" "May the Lord be with you" "In Jesus name" "Allah be praised" "Namaste" etc., need to wake up and smell the flowers. Flowers are real! 🌺. Try taking some to a child you don't know in a Children's Hospital. I think you just might find it will do much more good than your "Universal Energy" rubbish.

    I'm a witch I believe in protecting everybody and anybody and especially Mother Earth's in our planet if casting a protection spell over the women in another country is bad Tammy Christianity is just as bad they're the ones that want to help everybody. When witches start helping then it goes against everybody's religion it's really sad to think that everybody still has the mindset that witchcraft is evil

    the real issue is with the people. As long as the people are dependent upon another country to care for them they will never have freedom to live their lives in a manner of their own choosing. Instead of hexing the taliban i would empower the people. This can be done with spells and ritual also. The right to choose belongs to them. If it wasn't the taliban it would be some other group until they learn a new way.

      Karen, yes! Feeding the oppressed with spiritual strength and power, if their souls will accept it, could work. Thus empowered, they could siphon off power from the oppressors, particularly as they share more ancestry with them. Much could be achieved by them in appealing directly to their helpful and sympathetic ancestors for assistance and protection. Honestly though, the first and hardest step is for the oppressed to feel their own power, and solidarity. That is key.

    1. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

      Ty, you may be confusing Witches with practitioners of other forms of magic. It isn't all the same thing. Witches and Wiccans originated in the western hemisphere. There may be some Wiccans in that part of the world now, but not many, and they aren't likely to be members of the Taliban. It goes against the grain. It is much easier for a Witch to hide as a Christian, than as a Muslim extremist who seeks to cause injury. The only time a Witch seeks to harm anything, is in order to protect from harm.

      1. Rev Mark D's Avatar Rev Mark D

        Now this sounds more like the witches I know.

      2. Amber Fry's Avatar Amber Fry

        Actually they are closer than you think. They just have different names and traditions and styles of practices that still fall into the realm of witchcraft. But yes, I do agree with the last statement. They tend not to harm things unless when trying to protect something or someone else from harm.

    We have free will. We can fight fire with more fire. We can also chose to not fight and align with the Creator, hoping these people's hearts will melt. In whatever ways we choose, I pray that the veil of Isis is torn and that they fall into holy alignment and divinity.

    One thing I learned, is that the use of some energy comes at a cost. It can show up later in the most unlikely of places and time. And dealing with past karmic residue is not easy or fun.

    We can't see the Universe in its totality. We can always rely on aligning with our divinity to guide us.

    Wow, that's a tough one. I can understand the desire to use those energies for that. But that part of the world is very close to the ancient ways.

    1. Matthew Mastrogiovanni's Avatar Matthew Mastrogiovanni

      The Taliban follows the same Creator that Christians and Jews do. They all pray to the same sky god, to kill his other children too. The God of Abraham lets his badly behaved children do whatever they want.

Did you have another one in mind? If you do, are there any peer review papers on it?

    Maybe the witches did have some effects on 'hexing' Trump, and ridding the nation of him.... Hexing the Taliban might not prove as successful, given the US military spent hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars and have conceded to them.

      The military didn't concede anything, Biden did.

      1. Shawn Conan Scott's Avatar Shawn Conan Scott

        President Biden acted as he did because The Former Guy had already made a deal with the Taliban. And then the Afghani leadership left the country. I should like to see you (or ANYONE) do better with what TFG left the presidency with. And Pres. Biden hasn't been in office a year yet, so I am reserving any real judgement until after then. I should ask everyone to extend him the same courtesy,

        I believe we should counter the energies roiling in the cosmos to the best of our abilities. Be it with prayers to God, or to the Goddess, with countering magicks or with faith, our spiritual energies need to be on healing the planet and countering any people who try and do it harm.

I should welcome whatever prayers to any being from anyone to that end. But this discussion IS about the Taliban.

  1. William Dusenberry's Avatar William Dusenberry

    The Christian Bible (King James) saith “thou shalt not suffer a witch to live” but King James was a dictatorial, totalistic, anti-Democratic despot.

    The Thomas Jefferson Bible (written by the “Declaration of Independence” author, and third president of the USA, Thomas Jefferson (which should be the Christian Bible, of choice, of all patriotic, democracy-supporting USA’ns) makes no mention of witches — which is why the GOP white nationalist anti-democracy MAGA zealots refuse to even read the Thomas Jefferson Bible.

    So, either the European and USA witch-murdering white Christians, murdered all of the witches some 400 years ago, or, as Thomas Jefferson, by default, demonstrated, that witches never existed — but one thing is for sure.

    MAGA zealots follow the anti-democracy King James Bible - suggesting that the USA is turning increasingly towards fascism.

    The type of fascism in which the Golden Rule is symptomatic of being under a witches spell.

    3. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

      Don't get the wrong idea about the Republican party. It isn't a Christian sect, and many Republicans aren't christians. And many of us don't even like Donald Trump, and aren't scared to admit it. We're even proud to say that we sometimes vote for Democrats. We might have to do it again, next time too, if we don't get a better Republican in there by 2024.

    4. Shawn Conan Scott's Avatar Shawn Conan Scott

      King James and his translators were wrong. Many scholars believe that phrase is better translated as "thou shalt not suffer a sorcerer (I.E. one who practices back magic, is aligned with evil forces) to live." I should hope that you do not plan on acting to eradicate them all, committing mass murder.

      Instead, perhaps you should look to Exodus 20, Matthew 22:34-40, and Romans 13:10, and not worry so much about whom you should suffer to live. And the Golden Rule is not exclusive to Christians and Jews. The same idea is in Islam, and in the various pagan religions.

      I do not know if that is strictly true. He did not turn into a toad of course, but that might be viewed as an improvement. He did loose the election, and he may yet get an orange wardrobe, plus free room and board.

      1. Amber Fry's Avatar Amber Fry

        Transfiguration is a myth. Witches tend to work with nature to weave results through more natural channels. He did loose the election but how do you know it wasn't because of witchcraft working to wake people up to the truth of the damages he has done? A higher percentage of people voted than ever before. That made the difference. How do you know it isn't witchcraft that is overcoming those responsible for the burying of his deeds? They are making much more of an effort in investigations and finally making headway. How do you know that isn't from the influences of witchcraft? Both are quite a big change from what was going on before. That's what witchcraft tends to do, lend power to the somewhat possible to make it far more probable.

      2. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

        Us Witches have never turned anyone into toads, or anything else, Herbert. That's one of many popular misconceptions about us, and the way we use magick. Only wizards, like Merlin and Gandolf do things like that.

    2. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

      How do you know it didn't work on Trump, Angel? He's no longer our president,and it doesn't look like he ever will hold office again. The proof is in the pudding, and that's proof enough for me. However it seemed to have happened is beside the point. It happened. When us Witches pray,in the right way, through prayer, spells, chants, rituals, etc., Magick happens.

    1. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

      Maybe there isn't a Witch in England who has a strong enough desire to heal you, Nicholas. The way you talk about us, I wouldn't be surprised. What goes around comes around. We don't go around healing everyone of everything. If you don't seek us, we won't seek you. Also, in order to heal, a strong desire, and strong emotions must be present in the healer. And since you don't even believe in us, why would any of us have a desire to heal you? Personally, I think you make a splendid bi-polar, and don't think you should ever change a thing. Just keep taking your lithium. You can wash it down with tea and crumpets, at tea time. Jolly good show, ol' chap!

    2. Amber Fry's Avatar Amber Fry

      That's why you don't believe in witchcraft? Witchcraft isn't about doing the impossible. It doesn't make unnatural changes. It's about adding to any efforts to give the possible a boost and make things more possible or even more probable. What it cant effect in that way, it can help in managing some things better. Some health issues are part of the natural flow and breakdown of the body and can be slowed, but not stopped and reversed. Other things have to do with the pollution in the world and of the body which would require a deeper look at internal damages to help slow down or stop. Bi Polar is a biochemical issue that requires knowing why exactly it's tipped off. It can be managed to the point of lessoning the swing shift of moods and how to manage those moods better when they do hit but it isn't something that can just be cured.

    1. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

      There's absolutely nothing wrong with protection magick. Us Wiccans are not the fools who turn the other cheek. Ofcourse, mundane outsiders will never fully understand us, though some may try, but only take our principles at face value, and cannot perceive the underlying meanings of what we do, and why we do it. It takes a Witch to know a Witch, and understand Wicca, Wiccans, and Witchcraft.

      1. Daniel Gray's Avatar Daniel Gray

        Never said there was carla, I am just saying that they tried it to keep Trump from being elected and we can see how well that worked for them. And only a fool does the same thing again and again and again and expects a different result each time.

    2. Matthew Mastrogiovanni's Avatar Matthew Mastrogiovanni

      Daniel, actually the 3-Fold Law (or the Law of Return) states whatever you put out; good, bad or otherwise returns to you.

      Remember the Abrahamic faiths teach, do unto others as you have them do unto you. Yet we have endless Muslim terrorists/murderers. We have Christian White Supremacists, Christian Insurrectionists at the Capitol, and Christians were the Spanish Inquisition, Christian Crusaders, Christian Witch Hunters. So, please spare me your hypocrisy.

      PS: Also, not all witches believe in the Law of Return. PS: The hexes on politicians worked. Trump did lose the election and his mind.

      1. Daniel Gray's Avatar Daniel Gray

        yes I do know about the 3 fold law. And I also know that every witch or claimed witch I have spoken with (unless they are using black magic or what they claim is black magic) has said the exact same thing. Whatever you send out is going to come back to you or at you three fold.

        And like I said, before Trump was elected you had witches trying to put a hex on him and stop him. Didnt seem to help much now did it? So why should anyone believe they can now do what they claim?

  1. Carl Bernard Elfstrom's Avatar Carl Bernard Elfstrom

    Few christians know the right way to pray, so they don't often get the results they seek, but us Witches, Wiccans, sorcerers, etc. have received substantial training in various forms of manifestation, and get far better results.

      Actually, I was waiting to see the success of drawing in the "energy of the universe", and everything be put to rights. I realize I shouldn't have waited, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway.

      I'm just not convinced about the "So mote it be" and "Blessed Be" groups. I've been there and done it Carl and all I ever saw, when I really opened my eyes, were what I would call "wacko's in robes" (unless it was skyclad, nude wacko's nonetheless) waving their arms in the air, and smudging everyone cleansing their "energy". It's really no different than a Priest walking down the church isle with his smoking incense (borrowed from pagans), thinking by doing that "something" is working. SPOILER ALERT: It isn't, and doesn't, children are still dying of cancer, and many die of hunger and thirst while a man holds a gold cross in the Vatican, and Pagans smudge.

      Opening and closing a circle with an athame, or drawing a pentagram in the air is no different than catholics "crossing" themselves as they walk in church towards an effigy of someone being brutally murdered. They won't say he was murdered because they think by saying "crucified" it's somehow much better, and is to be somehow revered. It's actually a very sick way of thinking. Such is the power of indoctrination wether it be religion or Wicca.

        I disagree, sir. The politicians in Texas backing those oppressive laws are INO Christians, not believers of God. They do these things for their own power, for their own glory. They do not strive to do the work of ANY god or goddess, nor to actually help anyone, but to retain the votes of their followers. Many seek the approval of The Former Guy, an atheist who many say was sent by God. (False Prophet, perhaps?)

        That being said, I stand by what I have said to others - anything to help the planet and its denizens heal and be better, I am for.

    Gary, I agree with you totally. Short and sweet.

    Didn't the witches in England do something similar to this during WWIi! I believe it was Crowley who organized covens to works toward thwarting Hitler and the Nazis. It's better than sitting on your hands and doing nothing. JMHO.

    Rev. L.R. Gleason writes: As a ULC minister of 36 yrs, and a practicing Wiccan, I have to respond to Lionheart's commentary on 'energy'. Not all 'energy' can be measured by instruments. There is the considerable power of emotional energy, which I have personally witnessed countless times. Here's an example; just go to any Seahawks home game and you can feel the positive power of 68,000 fans being focused down to the field. The players certainly feel it, and have remarked on it, both Seattle's and their opponents. Have you ever seen someone crying, and you started to cry yourself, even though you didn't know what they were crying about? That person's emotional energy was washing over you like a big wave, and you can't help but be carried along with it. This, pure and simple, is what Wicca is all about. The gathering and harnessing of your's and other's emotional 'energies', either as 'Solitaries' or 'Covens', to achieve a desired result. The methods or rituals you practice to go about "working up your head of steam", are as varied as each individual or group. Here's an example from our history books; During the height of The Blitz on London in WW2, all the Covens in England got together, pooled their collective energies, and produced a blanketing fog that the Luftwaffe couldn't fly through. So intense was their effort that many witches actually died, having given their all to the effort! So, Lionheart, don't denigrate the power of 'emotion'. I have witnessed it in action!

    SO MOTE IT BE!

    Personally, I cast no judgment on those who identify as witches, especially since my own sister identifies as a lesbian druid witch herself, and its simply not my place to sit in judgement of others.." Judge not, lest ye be judged", however, isn't it written in the Bible " Suffer not a witch to live"? Additionally, isn't it also written that "a homosexual is an abomination before the lord"? In these times where Bad is Good, and Good is Bad, aren't these times also mentioned as " The end of days"?

    Primarily, nature religions(mostly witchcraft and wicca) have a golden rule. "An it harm none, do what though wilt!" They are also against the forcing of will. If they do hurt or force the will of others, it is with full knowledge and acceptance that what they put out into the universe will come back on them threefold. Karma. Most true practitioners of the craft would think twice before harming or forcing will.

    Eight words the wiccan rede fulfill. An it harm none, do what thou wilt. Witches would think twice before harming or forcing someone's will. We believe in karma so anything we send out into the universe will come back on us threefold. Also, it is the golden rule of the craft, being against the forcing of will running a close second.
