2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

When you pick up a book that uses Egyptian myth, and put it back on the shelf when it portrays Anpu as a monster.  :mad:

You know you're a pagan when you get angry that books about ancient mythologies aren't in the religion section.

I started a blog. Feel free to peruse. It's still in it's early stages and I have to write more, so do bare with me if it's all a little basic so far.

When you make a list of books you want, and all except one is about Paganism of some kind.

You know you're pagan when your holy trinity is composed of a triple Goddess or Isis, Osiris, and Horus.

When you're very selective about mythology books.

When you go through the old mythology books you read as a kid and keep going, "No, that's not right," and "No, that's not the guy's name," and "Dammit, did they even read a single Edda?"

Or maybe I'm just a nerd.
That awkward moment when someone calls you a godless heathen. :hdsk:

When you become livid with rage at blatant misinterpretations of your deities in popular culture...I am guilty of this one. There are artistic liberties and then there's ignorance. One should not mistake one for the other.

This.

When you look at a calendar and you see "winter begins" and on a bad day you get a little bit ticked off.

Oh this, this indeed. My mother, the Loki fangirl, tells me to just think of it as fanfiction. I say that making Loki Thor's brother is like making Snape Harry's brother. No.

{shudders} That's just.....wrong. Some fanfic should never go there! (There are people who ship Snape with either Harry or Hermione.) {shudders again}

You also know you're a pagan when you're comparing prices on unicursal hexagram pendant prices on amazon.com.
