* "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.

Secondly, Columbine just opened a group blog as a counterpart for her facebook group in His honor. This discussion ended up directly quoted via a comment I did during one of the discussion I partecipated:

Thanks. Some of these essays are really helpful to me now.

No need to get snippy, I was just curious.

I am happy to spread the word. There's so little about Him on the web and it's a shame.

The group accepts submissions from His devotees, if you are interested.


And I agree with Natigall, this is a very nice site.  I am touched by its author's devotion.   Thanks for sharing!

Assuming that you are referring to my first post, the info was first passed during an oracle session I was doing for Hekate on the account of other querents. I didn't realize it was meant for me right away but when I eventually did, I flailed A LOT, then had Apollon tune in and passing along his message. That sent me panicking enough that I eventually asked Columbine, who does oracle work for Apollon but also works with Hekate to help me to understand better what was happening, and her divination/comunications pretty much made it official.

Things kinda progressed from there, but for now at least, Apollon is definitely the dominating presence in the duo

Recently I was asked for a dedication ritual for Him. Natchigall was totally right tough- I didn't need to have worried about myssing signals because Apollon was pretty much into my face 24/7 until I ritually promised one year and one day of service (the time limit was my idea, mostly because taking a more permanent commitment scared me something fierce).

 That's really intense, and really cool. :)

He's always .... I dunno. Scared me. Because he's so Big, you know?  I am respectful of Apollon, but I doubt I would have the strength to ever work with him.

I've had to interact with him a few times and he was...tolerant.  *shrugs*  Then again, I'm not his.

Big, indeed. He has a presence that takes quite a lot of getting used to - it has such a purity and such a consuming light, I feel all more 'little' and frail before Him. I can't recall ever having a similiar response to a deity, but He feels so very vast sometimes, I am truly tempted to think He is all-powerful and infinite.

 Don't get me wrong, I think many/most deities out there are very powerful; not belittling any, of course, but yeah; he's Bigger in a much different way than, say, Hermes, who I follow.  I don't think that Hermes couldn't be Big when he so chose to show himself that way, but there's a difference.  

I sometimes crave a relationship like the one you seem to be getting started on with Apollon, but I don't know that I could possibly handle it.  I think that's why Sirona has been quiet with me lately... she, too, is Big.  I need to work up to it.

Keep us posted on how things go. I am especially interested to know. :)

I meant that I've been in a couple situations where interaction with Apollo was required, for various reasons.  It's kind of a long story.

This, indeed.
Then again, it is said in the Orphic hymn: "Yours, too, are the beginning and end to come".
