* "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.

Belenos

Has anyone worked with him? I've dedicated the past month to researching and giving offerings to Belenos/Belenus since he made himself known to me, but most of the information I can find is limited to "sun god, equated with Apollo by the Romans, healing associations, possibly tied to Beltane celebrations because of the name."

I'd welcome any UPG regarding the Shining God; he strikes me as fairly calm and patient, but not exactly forthcoming with specific identity details.

In our tradition we called him Belobog, Beliy Did. Hebrew: Baal. He's one of the forms of God Creator of visible world. "Beli" in russian means exactly "white". "Bog" - God. So he can be translated like White God. His opposite is Chernobog. Cherni - black. Black God.
I think Beltane can be translated like "Beli Tin" from slavic language. Beli(White/Light) Tin(Fence). By other words Fence of Light (from black night of Black God).

It's generally not a good idea to assume correlations between words of different languages just because they sound similar.
