Twitter users are looking to a little black magic to fulfill their deepest desires.

“Summoning circle, hope this works” is the meme — er, spell —to bring your wishes to fruition. Simply put your deepest desire in the middle of a circle of emoji candles, tweet the image, and wait for the witchcraft to work its magic.

Clear skin, happiness, and just an iced coffee are on Twitter users’ minds.

The meme took off on Thursday, March 7, but the first memes appeared on Twitter in late February, in relation to K-pop star Yedam and groups Magnum and Treasure 13.

Some wishes are a taller order—homes for animals, success for friends, and an end to global climate change.

Unfortunately, some would-be witches can’t seem to get their spells just right.

But maybe there are no rules to creating the perfect meme summoning circle.

Or maybe, you just have to believe.

At the very least, it’s good to have an idea of what it is you want to summon. 

And while you’re trying to decide what exactly that is, we’ll just be over here with the rest of internet trying to figure out what this cat is trying to do.

Although some Twitter users think it’s pretty clear what’s going on with this cat. There’s a reason witches are often depicted with a feline companion, right?
