* "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.

Offerings to Khthonic deities
« on: March 07, 2015, 03:52:00 am »
I'm not a reconstructionist, but I tend to begin with a historical basis whenever possible.

I know that offerings to Khthonic deities were customarily deposited onto/into the ground as they were made, which poses a bit of a problem for me: I make daily offerings to Persephone (or try to), but I live in an area where I can't just go outside and pour out a glass of wine every night.

For the past few years I've been getting around that by collecting previous offerings in a separate glass and then emptying it onto the ground when I'm able to, which seems to be working, but I was curious about whether this is something that other people have dealt with before.

What kind of area prevents you from giving libations? :confused:
Personally, I haven't had this problem because where I live, there's plenty of open ground, even if I live on the 6th floor, I can always go out (especially if it's at night). How about getting a pot of soil and pouring libations into it, and changing the soil every now and then?

I agree with The Raven: A flower pot filled with soil can be used indoors, and the soil dug into the ground somewhere a few times a year (more often in summer, otherwise insects could become a problem). Libations to Horkos is an even greater problem for urban flat-dwellers.
