* "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.

decent non-wiccan spellcraft books?
« on: July 06, 2012, 07:08:19 pm »
I'm looking for a non-wiccan spell book that doesn't list anything alphabetically by need but goes over the types of magic such as knot/cord magic, candle magic, mojo bags, witches bottles, sigils, how to make holy/blessed water and such. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I could find this?

there's a few,some are books entirely on just sigils or just candle magic etc.
but the "encyclopaedia of..." books list a fair amount of things by topic or ingredient.

I have 5000 spells by Judith Illes. It has all kinds of spells in it. It's nice to reference.

That's the thing though I don't want 5000 individual spells by need where you are told to do specific things as I like to write my own. I more or less want a book of guidelines really where a person says like this is how to make a witches bottle but you can alter the ingredients based on your need or preference sort of thing. I believe there is an Element encyclopaedia of witchcraft but the previews aren't showing enough of the book for me to know if I want it or not.

You might take a look at Natural Magic by Sally Dubats -she's more or less Wiccan, but the book itself doesn't have a ton of religious stuff in it if I remember correctly. What it does have are chapters on a bunch of different methods (knot, candle, herb, stone, a few others) magics, and then a short summary of different tools (different stones, magical herbs, etc.)

I ditched my copy in the previous move, but I seem to remember that she doesn't include mojo bags (different magical root), but at least discusses witchbottles and sigils (and covers holy water somewhere in there.)

I keep a small collection of spell books because like you I like to write my own. I look up a spell in one book, such as the encyclopedia 1000, get inspired then cross reference to see how others do it and hodgepodge it my own way to make it my own style.

I don't use other people spells I do the same as you. It's a reference.

Have ypu looked at Robin Skelton's "Spellcraft"? It is years since I read it and I don't think it covers all the areas you reference but it a good "how to" book to start writing your own spells.

I think I may have found one, I'm not sure I will have to do some research and see if I can find a preview of the book. But going by one of the customer reviews it sounds like what I need.

I have the smaller "1000 Spells" version, and it is very a good reference. There are a lot of spells in it, but there is a lot of information on many different kinds of magic. It was very informative, I learned a lot from it.
