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 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 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.

The Eclipse and Magic
« on: July 01, 2019, 01:14:30 pm »
Does anyone do magical workings when the sun and moon eclipse?  I have read that this is not the time to do any working, and even being out-of-doors when this phenomenon occurs is not recommended.  I'm not sure if I subscribe to this belief, and I know some witches who *do* use the eclipse's energy.  What is your opinion?  Are you planning anything for the eclipse?

I'm more inclined to take a pause.

I was just reading Kaitlin Coppock's take on the eclipses (she makes astrological talismanic items, her husband Austin is an astrologer) and liked her advice - clean things out, get rid of stuff you don't need (magically and just in general), don't do new things.
