Ok, Johnny - first of all, you are not only requesting a gender change but also an age adjustment. Very complex. And by the way readers, I get lots of email asking for spells to change gender and lots of emails requesting anti-aging spells. This is however, the first request for both.
A gender change requires physical and hormonal alteration and for this, one must seek out medical help. A gender change is also an extremely emotional undergoing and therefore one must seek out counseling, therapy, or psychoanalysis. A gender transformation is a great spiritual undertaking as well and this is the aspect that I can address.
In Greek mythology, the prophet Tiresias lived as both a man and as a woman and then he changed back into a man. According to the mythology, Tiresias came upon two snakes coupling in the road and he struck them. As a punishment, Hera turned him into a woman and he lived that way for 7 years until he once again came upon two snakes coupling in the road. This time, he struck them again (or according to a different version of the myth - did not strike them) and was turned back into a man. Tiresias was a priest of Apollo, so this is the god one should turn to for help with gender alteration. In addition to prophesy and many other things, Apollo rules the theater and costuming. The idea of cross dressing, gender bending, drag kings and queens fits very well into the fold of Apollo's powers. He is also the god of medicine and father of the healing god Asclepius so the petitioning of Apollo should also help with medical aspects of this endeavor. The symbol of Asclepius is the Caduceus - sacred seal of healers.
The Caduceus contains the magickal mating serpents and they hold the key to transformation. Work with this seal in meditation and magickal ritual (including seals and candle spells). Don't expect to wake up and find yourself transformed into the opposite sex but you can expect that working with these symbols and other aspects of Apollo's magick will facilitate your transformation into a smooth and successful one.

I just found a spell that I was interested in doing but it called for using a bluebell, preferably the fresh whole flower, but could also use the dried flower. Since it is February and bluebells aren't blooming yet, I looked online to see if I could buy any. This appears to be a very rare commodity! I couldn't find it anywhere. This made me wonder something. If I absolutely can't find a real herb that I need, what if I painted a picture of it or used a photo? I'm sure it should be possible in this case (and probably in most cases) for me to find a replacement herb and for that, I'll check out your Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients (which is SO AWESOME) but I was just curious if paintings/photos are ever used as substitutions.
Thanks most excellent Witch Doctor!
Hello Night Wanderer
Before long, I think you can wander about and see the bluebells popping up so there is also the possibility to WAIT for the correct season to gather the fresh flower for your spell. With regard to bluebell, there are many different varieties. Are we talking good old Texas bluebell? Scottish or English Bluebell, which apparently should not be confused. The bluebells are in the genre of Hyacinthoides, so if I were looking for a good substitute, I would suggest pure Hyacinthe oil which should be easier to obtain. In terms of substitutes, we need to examine the reason one is using the ingredients. For example, if you wanted the bluebell flowers for it's medicinal properties (to mix in a tea for example and take internally), I would not suggest Hyacinthe oil or a picture or painting but rather a corresponding herb that has similar medicinal properties to the herb you cannot find. However, if you were using for an emotional, psychological, magickal effect - it would be fine. For example, bluebells bring happiness. Hyacinthe oil is also uplifting and summons creativity. Often the visceral experience is important, so I would suggest a substitute than you could smell or touch or taste or feel. The eyes are certainly an important tool of the senses and the visual is very powerful so in this case, a photo or painting might spark the magickal feeling you are trying to summon. I would suggest for optimum effect that you obtain a blue candle, annoint it with hyacinthe oil and place a painting or photo of bluebells next to the candle or even carve an image of bluebells onto the wax. I imagine this will be a very powerful solution.

I was wondering, I know that 7 day candles are supposed to be burned in seven days, which means they're supposed to burn all day and night, right? But I'm scared of burning my apartment down! I think you wrote or said once that you could put a 7 day candle in the bathtub when you leave the apartment just to soothe your mind about lighting the place on fire. Was I dreaming or is the tub ok? Do you put the whole altar in there too or just the candle? Then do you just put it back on the altar after the tub?!
little wood pixie
Dear little wood pixie
This is a great question, not only for the obvious reason of not creating a fire in your apartment but also because you don't want to create any mental stress or anguish when working a candle spell. You must have peace of mind and allow your energy to be directed toward the successful completion of the spell. Any worry will detract from that. Most importantly, always practice SAFE HEX!
When working a candle spell at home that you want to burn continuously- the first rule of thumb is to use precaution and not create a fire hazard. That means to place the candle in a fireplace, sink, or bathtub when you are sleeping, not at home, or not attending to the candle. Do not move the whole altar into that space (especially if you are using a tub). When you return home or wake up, you can move the candle back to the altar. Do this each time with intention of bringing your magick home or closer to conclusion and fulfillment of your objective.
7 day candles traditionally burn for 7 days but they can burn in a shorter or longer period. Also they do not have to burn continuously although that is recommended especially if the magick you are working on needs constant and vigilant attention and you want the spell to complete as quickly as possible. For example, if you are working a healing candle spell, most likely you will want that energy 'burning' 24/7 to bring a complete healing as soon as possible. However, if you are burning a business spell candle in an office, you want to focus that burning time and direct it toward the business hours. Therefore you will want to light the candle first thing as the workday begins. You will then want to snuff* the candle out at the end of the business day and relight the next morning.
For more information on candle spells please visit this link. You can also order dressed candle spells on my website.
blessed be and thanks again for your excellent question
*It is considered bad luck to blow a candle out. Use a candle snuffer or lick your fingers and pinch out the wick with your thumb and forefinger. Also remember not to move the candle glass until the wax has hardened. Lastly, your magick candle must BURN TO COMPLETION. Even if you believe your magickal purpose has been obtained, you must let the candle burn to completion.

I have three books of magickal ingredients, spells, and rituals. I have owned your book of Magickal Ingredients since it hit the bookshelves. And I have these two questions regarding it.
1) In your book Chicory (bark and leaves) are viewed and used in a positive way. And in all the others it has very negative properties explained about this ingredient. I have stayed away from it for this reason for years. I was wondering if it can be used for both (good and bad) or if it needs to be used with caution in order for this ingredient to be positive?
2) Rooibos. I was wondering if this tea is useful for any specific purpose? (In spells, rituals, baths, etc.) Since it wasn't listed in your book and I have yet to find any other magickal information about it's properties. I felt compelled to ask you about it.
I wanted to thank you in advance for your answers and for your time. And I wanted to express my gratitude for your book as it has been invaluable to me!
Very truly yours,
In my opinion, Chicory is an invigorating and most helpful plant. It's use has been recorded since ancient times for variety of positive purposes and enjoyment. It is possible that some may consider it negative because of it's bitterness? Also it was (maybe still is) used to kill intestinal parasites and is also deadly to the silk worm. Perhaps this is connected with it being negative? Certainly, if one were in the silk trade business - you would not want chicory anywhere near your crop.
Rooibos has healing properties and I would also suggest the use of it in magick spells for successful returns on financial investments.
I hope you find this helpful.

I keep forgetting to ask this question and I thought I'd send it to your email specified on your blog... there's a ritual I've been doing for the past year to get rid of negative energy and bring in positive energy. I've been careful to do it not too close or far from either the full or new moon, and made sure to not do it during the moon void of course. I've also tried to pay attention to the significance of the day I chose, and also the time. Whew, lots of stuff to think about! But then there is one more thing. I'm wondering if it must be done under the moon itself...so do I have to also pay attention to the rising and setting times of the moon? Or is it just as good to do it when it isn't visible? Anything else I'm missing? I mean, I've definitely felt the great effects of this ritual, it's one of my favorites if only as a reminder to be positive because after all, I did that ritual. But I was just curious for a while if I should also take into account the rising and setting. I was trying to anyway because it's more enjoyable to see the moon when doing something that involves her, but with all of the other considerations plus work time, etc, it can become quite difficult to schedule!
Thanks Witch Doctor!
this is a wonderful question and I love the thought and attention you pay to your rituals. With lunar rites, the rule is to use a waning moon (full to new moon period) when working to banish negative energy and to use a waxing moon (new to full moon period) when trying to invoke positive energy.
Lunar rituals are definitely more powerful when performed under the light of the moon (or at moonrise not moonset). Often it is not possible to perform the rite under the light of the moon. (and there could be multiple reasons for this such as: your schedule, a cloudy night, new or dark moon rites, location limitations...) The rule of thumb is that once you perform the ritual (even if not under the light of the moon), you must track the moon and connect with it's energies until the end of the cycle in which you performed the ritual. For example, if you did a ritual to get rid of negative energy during a waning moon, you should look for the light of the moon at least 3 nights after the rite. Watch it's light diminish and as it does, so will your problem diminish. If you perform a ritual to bring positive energy on a new moon or growing moon, track the moon and watch it grow. Try to connect with the full moon of that ritual cycle so you can visualize your positive situation coming to fruition.
In the case of your ritual, there is a dual purpose and so it is more complex. In my opinion, you should do the ritual on the first day or evening (or at moonrise) of the new moon because the moon is still dark and therefore a perfect time to get rid of negative energy. Then on the second day of the new moon (or 3rd day), look for the first sliver of light in the sky and visualize your positive energy growing. In fact, you could even track the moon all the way to full and connect with the abundance of positive energy and light that you want to invoke into your life.
I find that the Hebrew lunar calendar is the most comprehensive, accurate, and spiritual to work with. The Rosh Chodesh (New moon) is a sacred time and will always be marked for two days on the calendar. (You can even download it on your iCal) The first day being the dark period or beginning of light not yet visible to the eye and the second day revealing the first visible sliver of light. The witches usually say to begin positive rituals 24 hrs after the new moon and that is because they are only counting the first day as the new moon day. In my experience, the first new moon day represents the conception. The second day is the birth of the light. Anyone wanting to give birth to a healthy baby, concept, project, relationship, business venture, etc would certainly want to make sure there was nothing negative present in the conception and in this way safeguarding the actual birth.
A word about the days of the weeks...Monday is sacred to the moon (Lunes) but if you follow the new moon calendar, your ritual will fall on different days of the week. I think this is a good idea because each day of the week coincides with a different part of the life. By performing your ritual on different weekdays from month to month, you can remove negative energy and bring positive energy to different areas of your life. Let the new moon inform you which day of the week is best on any given month.
The new moon days for this month are August 10 and August 11 2010. The first new moon day falls on a Tuesday. Tuesday is Mars and deals with our aggression and our sexual energy. It also relates to our health. Work on removing any negative energies in those areas of your life. The second new moon day falls on a Wednesday. Wednesday is Mercurial and governs our creativity, our art, our neighborhood, our siblings and social lives. Focus on bringing positive energy into those areas of your life for August.
Much continued success with your moon rites and thank you for this wonderful question.
love & light

Sports of The Times
On Road to Super Bowl, Sprinkle Some Eye of Newt.
Observe the angst of Jets fans. They are hopeful. They are fearful. More fearful than hopeful.
Mark Williamson staged an exorcism.
It is not clear exactly what he was exorcising, but some Jets fans have convinced themselves that the team is caught up in some curse, which sounds a little grandiose to me.
I think there are only so many curses to go around. I am perfectly willing to believe the Red Sox labored under a curse after letting Babe Ruth go to the Yankees for the 1920 season. It is quite likely that the Nets have been fated to lose in a ghastly swamp since ditching Julius Erving. The Cubs? That billy goat hex always sounded a little spurious to me.
But the Jets — excuse me if I offend anybody — just seem to be a generally mediocre team to which bad things happen from time to time. Then one January, there was Joe Namath.
Whatever it was, or is, that ails the Jets, Williamson was willing to do something about it. Williamson is a freelance video producer who happened to be born into a Jets family. As he said on Friday, if he had been born into a Giants family, he would have witnessed three — count ’em, three — Super Bowl championships in his 37 years.
Instead, at an early age, he witnessed the nimble Jets playing in Miami in 1982, when a sudden bog materialized in the Orange Bowl, and Richard Todd threw an interception to A.J. Duhe. To this day, if somebody in the Williamson family wants to feel particularly miserable, he or she just mutters A. J. Duhe.
This year, Williamson became an activist when the Jets hit a slump in midseason. He engaged the services of a witch named Lexa Roséan, who lives in Manhattan and says her coven of witches “did something” for the Mets in October 1986. Something to do with the withered ankles of Bill Buckner? She didn’t say.
Her father played some football back in Florida, Roséan claimed; therefore, she knows a bit about that sport. “Football is a much cleaner sport than baseball,” she said Friday. “Baseball has all kinds of weird superstitions.” Right. Just ask Moises Alou, still psychically standing down the left-field line in Wrigley Field, waiting to catch a long foul fly.
When Williamson had a consultation with Roséan, he said something about a vague Jets curse.
“Of course, that is open to interpretation,” Roséan said. “But the Jets were definitely blocked. As witches say, we had to uncross their path.”
She proposed that Williamson stage the ritual under a full harvest moon in early October — at a crossroads — so he chose the banks of the East River near his home in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A brisk wind, however, blew out the candles. Can’t exorcise 40 years of no Super Bowl without candles.
This time, Williamson selected the crossroads of the world — Times Square in Manhattan. There are some of us who think Times Square needs its own exorcism of the chain stores and suburban-mall blandness, and a return of our traditional sleaze, but that is another story.
The ritual took place at about 6 p.m. Dec. 3, a day after the full cold moon, and hours before the Jets’ game against Buffalo in Toronto.
“We wanted to send the love,” Williamson said.
Roséan said the ritual was “pretty straightforward” to please the god Legba, or Elegua, as he is variably known. A petition. A chant. Candles. Three coins. And three mint candies, preferably red, but since this was for the Jets, Roséan proposed using green-and-white mints, the team colors.
Roséan was unable to attend the ritual because she had the flu. Who knew witches get the flu? Anyway, Williamson did what he was told, twirled around a bit, received hugs from passing brothers and sisters, dropped the coins, dropped the mints.
That night, the Jets beat the Bills, and they have since lost once and won four, two of them gifts from the gods — or rather from opposing coaches who did not field their best teams.
Wondering what the Jets’ trouble was over the last four decades, Williamson and Roséan hit on the absence of a strong male figure, ever since Namath’s knees gave out. Lately, they have decided that Rex Ryan, the beefy, wisecracking head coach, is the charismatic man the Jets have been lacking.
“There is one side effect,” Roséan said of the winning streak.
I never miss the opportunity to play straight man to a witch.
“I’ve fallen in love with the Jets,” she announced, having watched two recent victories. She plans to watch somewhere on Sunday but cautioned Jets fans not to leave it up to the candles and the coins and the mints.
“As a witch, I often counsel people, ‘You are the magic,’ ” she said, adding, “That last little ingredient.”
Williamson is preparing for Sunday, practicing the Jets’ chant: “J-E-T-S! Jets! Jets! Jets!”
It must be fun to be a fan. Or miserable. Or both.
