* "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.

Quintessence Sun?
« on: February 06, 2017, 08:04:28 pm »
After several days of depression I managed to reconnect with the sun really strongly, to the point that I'm easily happy and confident even as the world goes to shit. I can't put my mind to more aggressive spells, but I can feel healed, almost.

I remember the alchemical processes of destroying and rebuilding the self, but I've never felt this great.

I wonder if I'm started to feel attuned to the sun's patterns and growing more vibrant in spring.

I empathize. Long before they coined the phrase "seasonal affective disorder" (with the apt acronym SAD), as a college kid I was all too aware of how the lack of daylight kicked my butt emotionally. By February, when midterm exams collided with my micro depression, I'd have a mini nervous breakdown every year.

Glad to hear you're feeling better.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Sorry to hear that. Sometimes its good to hold on to memories of sunlight during periods of depression

If you are looking to become more attuned to the Sun, you might wish to try meditating on the hexagram (often called the Star of David or Seal of Solomon).

Also, Liber Resh provides 4 adorations that are done on the 4 phases of the Sun: midnight, sunrise, noon, and sunset.
