Tik Tok Witches Hexed The Moon
But What Does That Mean?
During a recent full moon, a group of “baby” witches decided to “hex” the moon.
These witches are new to the craft and started the moon-hexing movement on the popular social media platform, Tik Tok. However, across many other social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram, more experienced witches came together to protest these baby witches’ actions.
For baby witches to grow into their craft, it is important not to slander their choices, but rather educate them on making more informed choices.
First of all, what is hexing, and how would one “hex” the moon?
In short, hex means to practice witchcraft, although it is much more complicated than the mere being of a witch. According to contemporary culture, a hex is a spell and usually one with a negative connotation attached to it. When you hex something, you are bewitching it, and many believe hexing to be the art of practicing “evil” spells. For instance, in Practical Magic (1998), Sandra Bullock’s daughter inadvertently hexed a young boy by pointing her finger at him; later, he developed the chickenpox. This action does not make her inherently evil, but her spell was cast out of anger, categorizing it as a hex.
Understanding the basis of hexing is imperative to understanding why hexing the moon is not the best idea.
The moon controls our emotions and rules over the tides and water, finding its home nestled under the sign of Cancer. The moon is powerful and directly affects our day-to-day lives and controls our deepest emotional responses. With that knowledge, what would happen if a bunch of witches decided to get together and hex (cast an “evil” spell) on the moon? The short answer: nothing good.
Hexes are powerful spells.
When practicing witchcraft, we need to be aware of the energy we curate. Likewise, we must acknowledge the powerful energies we tap into, as well. If we are not mindful of the energies we are interacting with, things can go awry.
Remember that the moon is on our side to help guide us and enhance our power.
The moon is positive energy, and hexing can sometimes be negative energy. If witches attempt to hex the moon, these two polarized energies will clash and cause unprecedented stress.
The good news is that the moon is all-powerful, meaning the hexes did not have much of an impact on it. It is not a new thing to attempt to hex the moon, but it is essential to understand why it should be avoided.
Being mindful of the energy we create is key to practicing witchcraft.
That said, we are moving into a new generation of witches that look to social media to grow in their practice. Thus, we all must be mindful of what we see and read online. Education is key as we collectively move forward together, joining forces in the craft.
If you see a baby witch doing something like this, don’t be mad. Instead, teach them how powerful hexes and the moon are and why they should channel that energy into something else. Baby witches, if you’re reading this, don’t fret. We are all on the same side.
