* "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.

My coven sister and I believed that my Egyptian Mau cat Bandit was a reincarnation of Bast because she lived so long and was always there to protect me.

 
... so you believed that Bast is dead, so she could reincarnate in your cat?

I took it to mean "incarnation" or "manifestation", though I can't speak for the OP. Doesn't the cats-as-manifestations-of-Bast thing have a historical precedent from the New Kingdom on? *has a bad memory*

No I don't believe Bast is dead at all, but I do believe that Bast spoke through my cat as a sort of spiritual guide.

I think so I am not to sure, all I know is my very old Egyptian mau was very wise, protective and I could just gaze into her eyes and talk to her. Of course she couldn't talk back but I could feel her energy and interpreted it.

In that case, then, I think you're talking about a manifestation.

So I have a few questions? I already have an altar set up at home with Bast on it and some crystals to represent the 5 elements. I will be looking into getting an Anubis representation as well. I was wondering what colour cloths or symbols would be good to have on my altar to appease them? As well as different items?
Thanks, Arianna

Considering you're not approaching from any particular framework, I think that gives you a lot of leeway on how you set things up.

Usually, my shrines have my icons, a libation bowl, and an offering bowl. Place incense on there as needed, candles on there as needed.

Popular colors in AE would have been black, white, gold, green, blue, yellow, red- afaik. Bast has both peaceful and violent connotations to her. Depending on which parts of her you work with could depend on what colors are best suited for your shrine. Anup is very liminal in his work, as well as dealing with aspects of death- which could also affect what colors you use.

Ankhs are common for all of the gods. Offering your icons ankhs or ma'ats would be entirely appropriate.

How much 'stuff' you feel you need on your shrine will be entirely personal. A lot of shrines are too cluttered for my tastes. My shrine is very barren for most people. Soo it really is a case of YMMV. Try some stuff out and see what works best.
