* "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.

Creating a Festival of Caesar
« on: July 06, 2011, 02:20:10 pm »
So, my practice\worship of the Divine Julius has been extremely weak lately; mainly consisting of the several-times-daily utterance of "Caesar's Luck" and a nightly prayer. In order to strengthen my practice, I've decided to take a page from The House of Vines and create a festival to honor him. As luck would have it, the day voted by the Senate to honor him is July 12th and his birthday is he 13th.

So my question is: what should I do? The only idea I have so far is hosting a Theonexia on the second day as kind of a birthday party. But other than that, I'm drawing a blank.

What say 'ye, my good Cauldronites?
Remember him, O Lord, in Thy Kingdom, Thy faithful servant Tau Harmonius, bishop of the Gnosis, and a knower of the things that are, who like his predecessors of old gave his life and blood for the Truth that makes men free. Grant him we pray thee, a place of refreshment, a blessed tranquility, and the splendor of Thy Gnosis. We thank Thee, O eternal One, for the example of this faithful shepherd, who gave up his earthly life in Thy service, and we pray that inspired by his heroic virtue we may also bear witness to the Gnosis of Love, Liberty and Light, and may with him at length enter into Thine ineffable splendor and unending joy. Amen.

It's been 7.5 hours since your original post.  Sometimes you have to give it time.  ;)  Not everyone reads the forum every day, and someone who only checks it once a day might've already done so, and even frequent checkers might want to take some time to consider their replies before posting.  No reply after 7.5 hours doesn't mean "no one", it just means "no one yet".

My only suggestion would be that since you took a page from Sannion's blog, to keep looking and see what he does for some of the Ptolemies.

Things that are coming out of my head at the moment: creating a playlist, reading books about Caesar or works written by him, a theonexia, blogging about him publicly, setting up a special altar for the occasion. Stuff like that.

I'll crack open McCullough's Caesar in addition to blogging about my practice, etc. Thanks ever so much for the suggestions.:D

Maybe try finding a figurine/statue of Caesar and putting it in a special cupboard like the Romans did for their household spirits?

Speaking of books, "Caesar" by Meier is a great one! Caesar
