* "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.

Looking the Part?
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:05:39 am »
Okay, I have a gamer daughter, I have a Goth Daughter, I have a well-off but still lifts couches husband.  Their clothes tell me all of this at a glance.  My clothes have been saying, baglady.  To learn the cards, I do a lot of self-readings and it keeps coming up that my outside and inside do not match up well.

Basically, the cards want me to have a makeover and dress outside to reflect who I am.  I have bought some things and I suppose I could go make some makeup.

I was watching a Youtube video about making money doing readings and girl talked about branding.  I think perhaps my guides started getting ideas.  But I have in the past received random acts of charity during the Xmas season because I dressed so poorly before leaving the house. 

And so it is that I am on the topic of dressing in a way that is truly stuff I love and reflects my personality.  It all seems so shallow.  And yet I would feel better.  I gained a lot of weight but I can still look like me, the shirt is just bigger.

I am going for a dressy hippy kinda thing.  You could buy it at Belks.  Actually, I got the shirts at Belks and Bell's Outlet. They are going to Xmas gifts.  I also went on Etsy and got card bags and Lenormand cloth.  If I want to do a reading for someone, I want them to know I care about the cards and this is special to me.

I guess I went a little overboard trying not to be vain.  Or perhaps I was just upset about the weight gain.  It's odd what you find out when you ask the cards.

I don't think that's shallow, I think that's perfectly acceptable!

Sounds interesting.

Sometimes my guides get on a roll with an idea and don't exactly know anymore than I do where that path could actually lead.  We live in the Deep South and they are encouraging me to get out more and be the kind of girl who whips out the tarot cards or a pendulum.  They want my kids to be the same.  Everyone thinks we are weird anyways, perhaps if we just go with it, like-minded people can find us more easily.
