* "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.

Summer solstice
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:21:17 am »
Hello all! I'm new here and was wondering if there is anything significant to my birthday being on June 21st? I was raised Christian but have always been searching for something and now at soon to be 45 I'm realizing it's the Goddess I'm searching for. I don't know much about astrology but am curious about my birthday?

Other than being on June 21st?  Nope. The Summer Solstice isn't even consistently on the 21st due to the wobble in Earth's axis of rotation, how the Gregorian calendar works, and how fast we're trucking around the sun.

Do you know if you were actually born on the Summer Solstice? There are websites that list days the solstice landed on according to year. That's how I found out that I was born on the Winter Solstice. I really don't know if there's a special kind of significance, but if you think about it, every day of the year is one of certain significance--just in different ways. That's what astrology is all about. Not that I know too much about astrology. While solstices are very symbolic for me (and for others in general), I just find being born on the solstice is a fun little quirk that brings me as much joy as being born on a double-number day. It's all about the small wonders. :D
