* "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 garden shrine/altar still has to wait till spring, but I've updated my main shrine.

Another update to my shrine! I've swapped out the Figuarts action figure for the official statue replica, added some record art and a place for burning incense, and strung up lights for reading and writing beneath (since the shrine is on a shelf just above the head of my bed).

I think this might be the wrong link? It goes to Meetup.com.

Thanks for pointing it out. Copy and paste is a pain sometimes.

Here is the right link.

Missing some deity images I'd like to have, but there are a couple of them on another shrine out of frame and I'm working on adding more.

It looks like a good start!

As far as my stuff goes, I'm pleased with the process of my portable shrine. It's a hat that I've been adding patches and pins to. Here's the current progress: 1 2 3

Thanks! It was a happy accident: I found the hat a little over a year ago when I stumbled into Hempfest by accident and bought it at one of the stalls, and I've been wearing it everywhere ever since as I continue to add to it.

It occurs to me that although I've posted shrines here, I haven't posted my desktop altar, which I use for my nightly ritual. Here is a link.

Left: one of my computer's speakers for playing music, with the action figure posed on top of it; the sealed glass jar containing my on-going money spell; several miscellaneous charms and pieces of jewelry to which I impart magical significance and therefore keep on the altar to charge. Center: an incense holder. Right: the glass I use for water in my nightly kala routine. Back: my fountain, which I use to give water offerings to my gods.

My shrine is growing nicely.
The plant will cover all threads eventually.

That is such a cool idea! With your permission I may use something similar to that idea when I eventually get my shrine/altar back up and running

Of course, feel free :)
I'm glad you like it.

Makes me wish I could grow things!  I am afraid I am just going have to get into rocks and crystals I can't off.  I was thinking of dressing up the house and my corner of the living room with some crystals over time. Was checking around for ideas, and had to give this one a thumbs up.  Alters should have plants.  But someone has cursed my thumb, I kill plants somehow.

I got my Yule gift to myself today, it's a bust of Hercules to companion Minerva on my dresser shrine. I might have posted this same shrine some time ago, but it's gone through a lot of reworkings since then (mostly in the vein of decluttering/minimization)
