* "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.

I didn't see the apology, but thank you for that. I do appreciate it.

Like I said, it's mainly naked (because I do it on weekend mornings), but I'm thinking something that requires more time/concentration calls for something more formal - like, I want my clothes to reflect the thought I'm putting into it.

 
I would totally do it naked if I didn't live in a populated neighborhood. I've always wondered...

I'm allergic to grass though. Is it bad to be naked but with shoes on? :p

I clicked on the link and was not disappointed.

 
I'm glad! It's one of the posts of which I'm most proud.

Well, at this point in my practice, I just dress in my every day clothing, though I would like to eventually incorporate more ritual wear for specific situations if I want to evoke a certain kind of feeling for the spell. Right now though, it's more important for me to do the magic instead of waiting until I have everything perfect because it gets me doing things. But I imagine as time goes on, things will be added, especially since I like shiny things. It's just very hard to find the right pieces due to lack of money and lack of knowing where to find said things.

I may also be very picky. Though I have found some lovely shimmery green nail polish that I can see myself wearing for magical ritual purposes some time in the future.

 
Shiny things accumulate over time. I think you've got the right idea just doing the work and letting the other stuff come into your life as you find it. ...and there is nothing wrong with being a bit picky.

OPI just did a Coca-Cola collection (which is one of those WTF moments) and one of the colours 'Green on the Runway' is possibly the grooviest green I've ever seen. It's got these purple undertones. I think of it as Hulk polish.

Well, the financial spells will certainly help in the shiny obtaining, at least. ;)

I'm mostly picky because it has to feel right for me, or it will throw me off. And I have my own personal symbolism that I'm trying to figure out. For example, it is unfortunate that a lot of snake stuff out there just isn't right. Some of it is, but there's also a lot of stuff that doesn't work with my personal aesthetic.

And that nail polish sounds awesome.

It totally will.

Snakes are one of those things that, when done right, look amazing and feel very... sensual and dangerous. But then it can veer off into death-metal-headshop territory very easily. XD

I have it on my toes!

That's so true. It also happens notoriously with dragons.

I made myself a mask for Midsummer that was covered in leaves. I wanted to do a Green Man type thing and ended up never wearing it :( Something about spending the energy to prepare the ritual ends up making me not want to do it when the time comes. I like to memorize things and then just do it when I feel right. In terms of color, I like to wear white. I love the crisp and cleanness of white.

The mask sounds awesome! Do you have any pictures?

I generally do daily rituals in my bathrobe....post evening shower. I am working on a hooded poncho thing that I plan on using for ritual. Warm enough for outdoors but arms free and won't fall into candles.
