They're called summoning circles, and on Twitter especially, users are posting images of candles wrapped around something they desire.
What some people may view as a silly meme has a deeply demonic connection, though.
According to Know Your Meme, "In Wicca and other related magic rituals a circle is used as a protective barrier for the magician and the summoned. Traditionally, circles were believed by ritual magicians to form a protective barrier between themselves and what they summoned. One Twitter user parodied this practice with emojis."
The trend has picked up since February, with major corporations jumping on board.
