When you swipe through the “For You” page of TikTok the first thing you see is definitely not the page for witchcraft you will catch a glimpse of an ethereal looking person surrounded by candles, crystals, or plants, chances are you’ve had a brush with WitchTok.
With over two billion TikToks bearing the WitchTok hashtag, it is an increasingly popular corner of the internet which consists of. But as with all niche interests, some people take it too far. Previously these witch activities were limited to humans. However, things have now gone too far as these baby witches recently hexed the moon.
TikTok has gone too far with Witchcraft
On any other day, WitchTok centers mainly on witchcraft, manifestation, worship of various deities, and astrology, celebrating all things magical via joke-based content and wholesome tips. But recently the TikTok users did something too far from normal. Somehow the witch babies hexed the moon and people are losing their mind.
Now, scientifically speaking, is the moon fine? Yes. Never in doubt. Even the bulk of WitchTok itself freely admits that the moon is fine. WitchTok user @thatonebluntwitch said in a TikTok, that they’re madder at the audacity of these idiots that would want to hex the moon or anything related to nature because that’s a sacred thing in witchcraft.
WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
well, for witches, the moon is integral to our work. most notably, it fuels spells and provides power. obviously you shouldnt ???? disrespect the moon??

Cultural and social belief has power, so if people are convinced that the apparent hexing may have an effect on their lives, it very well might not because their deities are angered or the moon is mad, but because of self-fulfilling prophecy and confirmation bias.
