* "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.

Hey does anyone have a good ritual to perform on the Equinox?

What is "good" and what path are you trying to get a ritual for?

This question is so vague as to be essentially useless. What constitutes good? What ritual goals are you aiming for? In what context is the equinox relevant?

Wow..first thanks for just trying to crush any sort of curiosity I might have. I am just researching everything about the Equinox that is coming up and I wanted to know any good rituals (good as being beneficial to protection and helping you harvest the good energy you put out aka helping people, making others feel good, sending positive energy out)...I just wanted to see what others did to celebrate the Equinox. Thanks though for being so "helpful"...

Well, see, if you had bothered to include *any* of this information in your initial post, it would have been a lot more helpful. And that definition of good that you just used is certainly not what I would have thought of, so explaining it is also helpful.

If you do a search on here, the topic's come up a couple of times recently. (I need to deal with processing a whole bunch of elderberries before running out the door to a rehearsal). If no one else has come along with more info, I'll be back in the thread when I've got more time (maybe tonight, more likely tomorrow.)

On the topic of helping people help you when you ask a question, though, you might find an essay on my website handy - http://gleewood.org/seeking/reaching-out/smart-questions/ . Giving people information about what you're looking for is a way to respect their time and energy in answering: as I like to say, I may be a witch, but my mindreading is highly unreliable. There's a lot of different paths and perspectives on this forum, so being clear about what you're looking for helps the people who actually know about that thing realise you're asking about stuff they know about.

It also doesn't help that your religion there is extremely non-specific to the question - "Son of Pan" doesn't tell me if you're looking at a Wiccan-style framework, some kind of seasonal thing, a Hellenic view ....

I mean .. what good is a ritual that's totally nonsensical in your religious background?

We are having our ritual tonight with smudging, closing the circle, call to quarters, two chants, cakes and ale and opening the circle.  These are eclectic Wiccan rites that can be found in most books on Paganism

I'm doing an ADF solitary rite on Sunday night or Monday. I'd like to do it tonight but I'm crammed with homework and just got home from work after battling traffic for an hour.

I'll be honoring the Kindreds as well as Manannan Mac Lir, Goibniu and Cailleach Baere. I re-wrote the ritual from a group rite in the 2007 Liturgist's Yearbook.

I burnt incense and offered libations to Demeter and Persephone, as well as a witchy kind of ritual for Isis and Osiris to honour Osiris as King of the Underworld.

I went to a party. A non-Pagan one.
Ate food, wished someone a happy birthday, had a bit of fun.

Kind of looking forward more to Samhain though. I have even less of an idea how to celebrate harvest festivals than I do Samhain. :o

Performed a rite at our coven Sabbat, which included adoring an Emmer Wheat, which was one of the first crops domesticated in the fertile crescent, and grown alongside the Nile, and by our ancestors at Newgrange(cruithneacht).

The next day also marked OTO Ireland's 3rd Birthday, and we performed a rite called Fraction du Pain out of Br. Rodney Orpheus's new book, The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley. It's a translation of a 19th century Gnostic Eucharistic rite adapted for Thelemic use.
