* "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.

I loooooooove wands. I loooooooooove making them. But I've never found a use for any of them. I'm not a wiccan, so they have no place in ritual... D:

That maybe gives me a B :p

Plenty of non-Wiccans use wands in ritual. Many neo-Druids do. Some CRs. All manner of others. X does not necessarily mean Y, there.

Whoops. I didn't know that- I had wands pegged as a totally wiccan thing. Sorry :)

But, a lot of the things I make, I don't actually use :o specifically my wands. I loooooooove wands. I loooooooooove making them. But I've never found a use for any of them. I'm not a wiccan, so they have no place in ritual... D:

 
When I told my husband I was going back to paganism he made me a wand. I thought he was really sweet to do that, but I've only used it once. I have been slowly gathering items for ritual. Most of my stuff were gifts or things that I had left over from when I was a kid. I just got an abalone shell this week from my jewelry supply store. I am in a megachurch area so there is no metaphysical alternative. Also, I haven't advanced beyond tea lights and oil burner.

Well on one hand, I don't use any animal products that I consider inhumane (different to everyone, obviously), and I've been using just my own sage and that other people grow, because I've heard large scale farming is threatening several common occult-use species (I don't have a source, but even if this isn't true, it doesn't hurt).

On the other hand, I use cheap candles that are probably made in sweat shops with some sort of process that has awful emissions.
