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 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 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.

Quote from: Chakabe;12999
If I ever get around to cleaning my room I might use my dresser as an alter... its has a mirror and quite a bit of space. As well I don't use it so the drawers can be reworked to hold all ritual items.

I've thought about using my dresser as well.  There's no mirror, but I think I'd find that distracting anyway :) .. the space is nice and large, and that's what I need.

Here's my current shrine/altars : one seasonal and a simple lunar one.  Link because I fail at BB Code!

I would love some inspiration & ideas. So if anyone would love to share pics or descriptions of their altars it would be lovely. I always find it just amazing the beauty & creativity that go into some altars & shrines.

l

Right now my alter is a shelf in my closet. (Thankfully its a large walk-in) I have four children under the age of 6, so I can't have it set up anywhere permanently. It's fairly simple for the time being....an alter cloth, a few candles, my favorite stones, a couple bowls, my chalice.  In about 5 more years I should be able to have my regular alter set up again, but that means my babies wont be babies anymore, so I'm not sure I like the trade off.

Er... did you mean to ask if she prayed to 'dieties'?  (I know, I know, I find it incredibly difficult to misspell something when I intend to too.

& this was my latest:



As you can see totally empty & simple lol. I can't wait to have more space lol


First off, I have that same Bast statue. =) My mother got it for me back in like 2006. I adore it!

Secondly, my altar. It's pretty small, on this little ottoman-like storage box. I keep all my materials and decorations on this bookshelf thingy beside it. And then my darling husband put up shelves for me just above my altar, so I have my Bast statue, Aphrodite statue, and whatever miscellaneous item on the top shelf. It's simple, but suitable. =) My tiny self manages to do my workings there just fine. I would post pics, but it's in use at the moment, and I'm kinda too lazy anyways. =)

I have no altar at the moment but was planning in setting one up when we've re-arranged a few rooms. I think I'm going to have to something similar with a 7 year old and a baby to contend with. I just don't have any cupboard space spare so will have to get my thinking cap on. I really miss not having a focus point to my path.

 I love this one!!! Is that a crocodile head or an alligator head?  I can never remember which has the more rounded snout!

I just realized that it looks like the frog is nuzzling the alligator/crocodile head (yeah, I don't know the difference either).
