* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

books on winter magic
« on: July 17, 2013, 08:55:54 pm »
I was wondering if anyone knew of any good books that have to do with incorporating snow and ice into your practice?

The hole book doesnt have to be on it, it just has to talk about it some

Why don't you just create your own way of incorporating snow/ice into your practice? I don't know of any sources that mention snow/ice except in purification, creation, and clarity rites.

I have to agree with trying to come up with some of your own, I've incorporated snow as well. I collected fresh snow in a cauldron last winter and melted it to use as holy water for my Winter Solstice ritual. My book of shadows contains a few ice spells as well, like an anti harassment spell that involves writing down the names of the harassers and freezing them, thus stopping harassment.

Here are some ideas you can work with:

Either for Imbolc or whatever else you could make ice/snow candles, there are instructions all online.

You may also consider snow/ice as a "sculpting medium" to use to make offerings or items for use during rituals.

If you were interested in working with runes, you could use the Isa rune in your rituals or in any sort of spells.

I've never seen a book or much dedicated to ice/snow spells, perhaps working with a deity who is associated with snow would bring you something new?

You could adapt the concept of the freezer spell, which is common in hoodoo and rootwork. I keep some snow water around for when I want to 'freeze' and stop things in their tracks.
