* "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.

*It occurs to me that I live somewhat in Celtic time, where the day technically starts the night before... *facepalm*


*laughs* I hear you there.
But I also tend to move stuff around, so that it fits the schedule. Solstice-celebration on the weekend will be a lot more comfortable. ;)
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'

Confuzzled and proud. :p

I think so.  At least according to the power(s) that be.  ;)

Yes indeed: from sunset Saturday evening until sunrise Sunday morning. And good grief, it's coming up fast this year!
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

What amazingly warm welcomes I have received so far. I hope to make it to the Solstice. I'll bring Isis :-)

And thank you. She is one of my favorite characters in literature...shame about the berries

Count me in, then, as well.  Sounds like a lot of fun (and an opportunity to be a night owl, no less - something my job usually doesn't allow for)

I did mention that, to placate the sky gods and guarantee the sun's return, we sacrifice a virgin--in cyber terms, a newbie--on the solstice altar, right? No?? I forgot to bring that up? Silly me. ;)

Long time reader, but this is my first time SPAMMING. Maybe I wanted to wait until after the sacrifice was chosen, lol. Really though I wanted to share a solstice meditation I tried out this year and felt it has made an impact. I will probably post this again closer to next year, but please let me know if you have heard of it. It got it from THE PLACE I'M SPAMMING FOR.

[Mediation removed for violation of our copyright guidelines: i'm sutre that the place he's spamming for probably gave permission, but the spammer did not so state as our rules require.]
