Lana Del Rey has a new album coming out sometime soon, so it’s fair to assume anything mysterious she does is just a way to remind you of that, but it’s also possible that one of her recent tweets was confirmation that she plans to put a spell on Donald Trump.

Here’s the story: last night, LDR sent out a cryptic tweet that contained four dates and the phrase “the ingredients can b found online.” I initially assumed it was release dates for new singles, but some Lana fans on Reddit have pointed out that the dates line up exactly with those of an occult ritual designed to prevent Donald Trump from doing harm, details of which have been circulating online.

In a Facebook group dedicated to the ritual, organizers note that this ritual is “a binding, not a hex or a curse.”

“In other words, this is not the equivalent of magically punching a Nazi,” the organizers write. “Rather, it is ripping the bullhorn from his hands, smashing his phone so he can’t tweet, tying him up, and throwing him in a dark basement where he can’t hurt anyone.”

If you need a little more convincing, the photo that accompanies Lana Del Rey’s tweet also looks a little bit like the poster for the 2016 movie The Love Witch. Coincidence? Probably, yes.

In any case, the first date is today, February 24th, so at least some of the mystery should be solved by midnight. Or maybe it won’t be.
