Occultists in Brooklyn, New York, are so incensed with the confirmation of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court that they are gathering to put a hex on him.

The three witches from William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” famously offered the incantation “double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble,” but Oct. 20 is setting up for something along the lines of “fire burn and Kavanaugh bubble.”

Catland, which bills itself as Brooklyn’s “premier metaphysical shop and event space,” will host the ritual and donate 25 percent of all proceeds to Planned Parenthood. Another 25 percent will go to the Ali Forney Center, a non-profit organization for homeless LGBT youths.

The events costs $10 per person, although the group says no one will be turned away at the door for lack of funds.

“Please join us for a public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them,” its Facebook events page reads. “We are embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik [sic] of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and it’s [sic] history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like him.”

“He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and and all of the axes you’ve got to grind,” the invite continues. “There will also be a second ritual afterward — ‘The Rites of the Scorned One’ which seeks to validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer.”

More than 10,000 people showed interest in attending the event, and over 900 people have RSVP’d.
