@BarbaraCasey: I'm glad you enjoyed reading about labyrinth symbols. Thanks for the blessing!
Since most people have short attention spans I'll get right to the core of the ritual to show how Katy Perry and her producers are using witchcraft in her video Firework and then I'll go into much more detail to show supportive evidence. Witches are known to practice magic by gathering in circles and rotating the circle either clockwise or counterclockwise depending on the intent. Since the human body has energy or electricity this makes a sort of a generator of power which can amplify the witches' intent whether good or bad. When you see the dancers form in the Lion's Courtyard they form an eight-spoked sun wheel which is based around the solstices and known to witches as the Wheel of the Year. Katy is spinning counterclockwise inside the circle like a whirling dervish. They then form a sun swastika with its tips pointed to the left which is negative. In one circle there are some dancers going clockwise while another ring of the circle is going counterclockwise. This is counterproductive and is always used for negativity. Then finally I believe they form a labyrinth since on the right side there is a small opening or entrance just like you see in mazes or labyrinths. Plus underneath their feet is a six mile underground labyrinth. Labyrinths are symbols which can symbolize one's spiritual path in life and are mazes that have been used to entrap and also even for sacrifice.
Steps on pilgrimages used penitent crosses, which functions as meditation stations. It is likely that early Christian labyrinths symbolised mental and physical ‘maps’ or contemplation.

While the labyrinth symbolizes the route, no one can take it for someone else. We must each find our own way. I particularly like the approach of the Taize Community, which works with thousands of young people. The Taize brothers tell them, "We don't have any answers to give you, but we will be with you and assist you to find your own answers." The labyrinth is the same, in that it imposes nothing, but allows each person to find that which is meaningful to them.From rock carvings throughout Europe to friezes in India, from ancient Greek coins to Hopi woven baskets, labyrinth symbols have been a part of our global culture for thousands of years.From rock carvings throughout Europe to friezes in India, from ancient Greek coins to Hopi woven baskets, labyrinth symbols have been a part of our global culture for thousands of years.The 'Man in the Maze' is a Hopi version of the labyrinth symbolizing life, the choices we make and the twists and turns of our life journey towards unity - the center. A variation on this without the man represents the Mother and Child, a symbol of rebirth.
