It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!

* "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 first Mabon circle
« on: August 25, 2011, 10:34:46 pm »
I received my first circle invite today and it is for a Mabon celebration. I have done a lot of research as I am still discovering my own path. It seems that there many different ways to celebrate the end of harvest and the welcoming of the new season. Anyone have any advice on what to expect? I am a bit nervous. :eek:

Your best bet is probably to talk to the group you got the invite from and ask them what to expect/what to bring/what to wear/anything else they think someone new should know.

You don't need to be nervous. If you've been invited, and they know you're new, you'll be welcomed.  What to expect depends a great deal on the group hosting the circle.  Are they formal traditionalists? Are they mellow hippie types? What kind of group it is will determine things.  

That said, Mabon often coincides with Pagan Pride Day so it's often, in my experience, been a pretty laid back, easygoing affair. Mabon is just one of the harvest festivals so there are various images/foods appropriate to this time of year and you might want to consider bringing something like this.  I'd recommend researching Mabon rituals and associated symbology (and foods if there's gonna be a meal). Good luck and have fun!
