* "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.

Greetings from a College Pagan! :)
« on: August 02, 2011, 12:26:57 pm »
Hello everyone!

My name is Dylan (not my birth name, but the name I have chosen to go by in my renewed spiritual effort. I'll talk about it more later) and I'm a twenty-year-old witch dude living in northcentral Pennsylvania. I'm entering my sophomore year of college pursuing an undergraduate degree in history with a minor in women's studies.

I have a speckled spiritual history for only being on this earth for twenty years, so I'll just give the spark notes. I began exploring Neopaganism around eleven or twelve when I mysteriously found a copy of Celtic Magic by D.J. Conway in my garage. I read it front to back and was utterly fascinated with every single word. It would be many years before I would realize that a lot of the history Conway presented was utter bollocks, but alas, that it is a different thread! :)

My journey would lead me many places. I explored Christianity in my middle teen years but eventually walked away from it. As my sexuality developed, I continually found that I didn't have a place in my church family. So, I turned to the God and Goddess. I wasn't done yet, though! I wandered through Neo-Druidry (ADF) and found that to be an amazing path that I was absolutely not ready for at the time. Due to various pushes and pulls, I ended up in the Kemetic Orthodox faith these past two years. It was a time of wonderful spiritual growth and development, but I ultimately left just this past week due to personal clashes in vision.

The common thread through all of these years of spiritual exploration is Wicca. I never stopped studying it regardless of which faith I was currently practicing, and I am super attracted to exploring the God and Goddess more than ever. I love Welsh mythology (my handle is in reverence to Dylan, the second son of Arianrhod), Norse mythology, Kemetic/Egyptian mythology, and Greek mythology.

I'm a voracious knitter, crocheter, and I'm starting to learn to sew and quilt. I enjoy reading and drinking tea (preferably at the same time, with a bit of patchouli in the background). Meryl Streep is my favorite actress of all time. I've been in a relationship for nearly three years and am absolutely in love with that boy. :)

I'm excited to jump into these forums! :0
