* "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's a pleasure to meet you!
« on: February 14, 2017, 04:39:51 pm »
Greetings and merry meet from Canada!

Now before I say anything else, I would very much like to mention how humbled and grateful I am to have found such a vibrant and robust community of pagans! I have felt more than a little isolated of late with no friends or family to speak of that would even remotely tolerate, let alone understand, my feet on the pagan path.

To quote the small bio I added to my profile:

"Although born into a militantly Christian family I was always drawn toward nature, fairytales, magick, Mother Earth and the idea of a Goddess. With great difficulty, and enough time, I was eventually able to shed myself of the dogma that had kept me so frightened and so ashamed in my youth. Liberated and free at last, I now happily associate myself with the New Age and Pagan movements, and though I am still very green and unlearned in this regard, I am very much looking forward to this new journey."

While nosing around these forums earlier today I read one woman refer to herself as "in the broom closet" and that's probably a fairly apt description for where I find myself these days as well. Fortunately my significant other is a very open minded individual (and very scholarly with all things esoteric) but aside from him I haven't had anyone else to talk to about these things in... well... ever! :ashamed:

Aside from making friends, and perhaps if I am so lucky, meeting mentors, I hope to further my knowledge of the Celtic pantheon and traditions, partially because of my heritage, and partially because of an inexplicable pull toward it. Also, in general am looking for new ways to express my love, appreciation and utmost respect for nature while bolstering my passion, energy, creativity and libido.  

Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by and learn a little about me. I can't wait to get to you know all.

Oh... and if I was supposed to mention the non-paganish bits about me, I'm a Canadian female, very adventurous, and a little bit stubborn (though I prefer the term strong-willed.) I love the colors purple and green. I enjoy writing fantasy books, sketching out pretty geometry and playing the harp. I always keep as many pets as I can reasonably afford (which isn't much) and I like to start each day with yoga and meditation. Is that too much information? I suppose I'm also a bit of a babbler.  :o
