* "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.

Voices of the trees: a Celtic divination oracle
« on: November 05, 2013, 06:11:04 pm »
Has any one any experience with this deck?
what are your experiences with it? Would you recommend it or not?
If not, any recs for similar type decks (I really wanted The Celtic Tree Oracle but its £62 on Amazon)

Thanks

If you want the Celtic Tree Oracle, my advice is to set up a search alert in eBay. They often come up more cheaply than you think - i got an unopened copy for £10. The deck is based on Ogham, but some of the interpretations of the Ogham letters are quite strange or based on Robert Graves' ideas. If you want a good Ogham deck that's more closely based on good scholarship, try the British Druid Order's deck: http://www.druidry.co.uk/products-page/oracle-cards/a-druid-ogham-oracle/ I've been working with this deck - while I don't agree with all of their interpretations (which is often going to be the case with an interpreted deck), it's very good.

Are you looking for an ogham deck? Or for info on using ogham in divination?

You might be interested in checking out Erynn Rowan Laurie's ogham work.  I love her book, Weaving Word Wisdom, and have been using her system for several years with excellent results.  

She also sells a set of ogham cards on her website, as well as a pdf download of her booklet,*Not Your Mama's Tree Ogam, which is a very abbreviated version of the ogham interpretations she describes in greater detail in the book.  Her website is http://www.seanet.com/~inisglas/

Oh, I didn't know you could set up ebay alerts, I'll give that a go. Thanks, and thanks for the other recommendation.

I bought the deck anyway because it really resonated with me and I like the artwork and I bought Druids Herbal of sacred Tree Medicine and Tree Wisdom: The definitive guidebook to the myth, folklore and healing power of Trees I'm aware there maybe stuff in both of them that is maybe off or inaccurate but I'm a bit of a folklore nerd so have a reasonably good baseline to start from and am used to sifting and double crossing sources

Eventually I want an Ogam set for divination but I thought I'd start with cards. I will checkout Erynns book. (Erynn is one of the first writers I discovered when researching my path, I bought an old copy of The Druid Renaissance and her essay in there both blew me away and made me cry, It was the first time I'd ever heard anyone talk about poetry the way I feel about poetry)
