Lana Del Rey Is Channeling the Moon to Dispel Negative Energy
Lana Del Rey's next album is for her fans — and she knows exactly what they want: magical energy harnessed from the moon.
Just a few days after releasing the intergalactic-meets-retro sci-fi visual for her ode to her fanbase ("Love"), the Queen of Coney Island returned just before midnight on Friday (Feb. 24) with a cryptic message.
"At the stroke of midnight Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23 ❤️ Ingredients can b found online 🍰," she wrote on Twitter two hours before midnight.
And guess what? There's something that ties all those dates together: the moon phase.
For those less familiar with astrology, those also happen to be the dates of the waning crescent moon each month. (Don't believe me? Go ahead and check each date — they're all waning crescent moon dates.)
Some background information on the symbolism of the waning crescent moon: "if you need to clear your life and home of negativity, stress, strife, chaos, etc., now is the time to do it. The Waning Crescent, as it approaches the Dark Moon phase, it suitable for stronger banishing than at any other time of the waning moon phases. Get rid of whatever has been plaguing you-- anything you find to be seriously annoying, frustrating or concerning (save things that are serious threats for that Dark Moon)."
In related news, witches around the world are pledging to cast binding spells on President Donald Trump to prevent him from doing harm to America on these same dates.
"Witches around the world will attempt to put a spell on Trump to bind him 'so he may fail utterly,' according to an anti-Trump chant that will be recited at midnight on Feb. 24. It's a waning crescent moon at midnight. The chant will be repeated under similar crescent moons on March 26, April 24, May 23 and June 21 until needed," reports App.
We'll have to wait and see if the moon phase also lines up with a musical release. Regardless, get your candles together — Lana's casting spells to protect us.
