* "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.

God/dess associated with wolves?
« on: February 21, 2012, 03:19:26 am »
Wolves are by far my favorite animals. (I'm also rather fond of cats, rabbits, jackals, butterflies and foxes). Since I'm still trying to find my path, I figured I'd start with some of the things that I love, since I know gods and goddesses tend to have some favorites too. So, does anyone know any gods or goddesses who love wolves or are otherwise associated with them? I'll also take names of gods and goddesses associated with my other favorite animals too :)

Artemis has occasionally been portrayed with a wolf as a hunting companion

Apollon is said to have a connection with wolves, just like His mother Leto/Latona.

In historical content Artemis has never been identifed with a Wolf.  She was given hunting dogs as a gift and is seen occasionally with them in dipictions.  As a side note Diana also is dipicted with hunting dogs and their is some cross over between them in some legends and stories between Roman and Greek histories.  

Hecate / Hekate is often dipicted in association with black dogs who were also sacrificed to her in some locations.  While they may have been wolf like it is pretty clearly stated in the histories they are dogs not wolves.

Historically Artemis is dipicted with Bulls in her Taurian role, Stags in her role as Agrotera (Olympian Artemis), Lion and Stag in her role as Mistress of Animals (early Orthia and at Ephesus) in a few rare occasions with a Ram.  I am unaware of any animal associations with her Arcadian identification, in some some of her ocean capacities she has been associated with dolphins but mostly at Syracuse and some of her port assocations in Anatolia.

Based on a historical fiction book I've read (a few times actually) called Wolf Totem. the mongols worshiped Tengar/Tenger (sorry for the incorrect spelling). The ancient grassland wolves were his servants.

I highly recommend the book by the way. It's really good.

Amaterasu is the Japanese Goddess of the Sun and is the deity of the Shinto faith with the highest power.  You can read a little bit about her here: http://www.thaliatook.com/AMGG/amaterasu.html and you can google her name for more info.  :)

Yes.  It's also worth noting Tyr was the only one in Asgard with the courage to feed and raise Fenris.

The Irish goddess Morrigan is sometimes associated with wolves, given that they don't mind scavenging on carrion.
