* "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.

Altar Candle Question
« on: January 24, 2012, 03:58:52 pm »
Hello!
I know that I can re-use a spell candle as long as it is for the same spell, but I'm curious on your thoughts as to using altar candles over again.  

For example, I purchase a new light pink pillar candle for Imbolc. A month has gone by and I didn't burn all of that pink altar candle but I want to re-decorate my altar and use a different colored candle. I'm sure I can put it away to use again at a late time, but can I only re-use that candle next Imbolc, or can I use it at any time, as long as I only use it for an altar candle? And I'm speaking of just the general working altar candle, not like a Goddess or God candle or a spell candle.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts! :D:
Blessed be,
SkylarB

Unless an item has been ritually purposed for a particular holiday, deity, or use, I'll wrap it up with some tissue paper and store it until I need it again.  If you don't belong to a tradition that speaks on that subject, I'd say go with whatever is most practical or respectful for your particular situation.

I second this. In the absence of a special dedication or a reason not to reuse from the teachings of your religion, I think the decision is yours.
