* "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.

Did Morrigan Have A Consort?
« on: May 24, 2013, 03:29:03 pm »
I'm confused about this. Did Morrigan have a consort? I would really like to understand this because one source says one thing and another source says another. Help would be appreciated.

As I understand it, Morrigan is independant and chooses those that may be worthy to be with her (the Dagda, CuChalain).  She is a goddess of Sovereignty over the land as well as self sovereignty.  IMO she doesn't 'need' a consort but chooses someone when wanted.

I don't claim to be an expert, but this fits well with my understanding

Aye, I believe there's a connection to Neit but that was more so to do with Nemain and Badb :)

Thanks for your comments. I do get really confused by the Morrigan.

I almost forgot about Neit!  The impression I have about the Morrigan though is that it's always been a relationship of equals and on her terms.  She's not one to be a whimpering little wallflower in the corner.  She's definitely one that's strong and independant and doesn't need a man to be 'complete/whole'.  Which is why I'm most attracted to her as a devotee.
