* "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.

New Start, New Introduction!
« on: May 17, 2020, 06:51:58 pm »
Hey everyone! You can call me Seb, Coyote, Feathers, whatever else you'd like. She/her or they/them pronouns, doesn't matter which. As you can see by my post count, I'm not new to the forum, but I've been absent for a couple years now and have enough new to say to make another introduction.

I started my pagan journey in elementary school with some friends when we were all convinced that we were Charmed-brand fireball-throwing witches. Of course I grew out of that, never jived with my Protestant upbringing, tried Wicca (it didn't click), and meandered around for a long time without much direction.

As of late, I've found myself trending towards forms of ancestor worship. That involves building a tree of named ancestors, as far back as I can go (lucky me, my parents have already done most of the genealogical heavy lifting), looking into my DNA ancestry and finding where the population my ancestors were part of came from and migrated to, and researching their cultures and beliefs as much as possible.

Being primarily of British and a bit of French descent, I'm pretty much exclusively researching Germanic and Celtic peoples, though I like to go a bit further and try to dig into earlier Indo-European cultures as well. Just learning about my ancestors' lives and who they were is satisfying in a spiritual way, but I'd also like to start incorporating aspects of their religions into my own ritual. I haven't clicked with any deities yet, but currently I feel a bit more connected with the Celtic ones than the Germanic.

So that's my spiel, hopefully I stick around for a bit this time!

I'm unsure whether 'welcome back' is the correct thing to say so I'll say, good to see you here :)
