I have had quite a lot of traffic to this blog via an article by Asaheim Wulfguard regarding Loki - over at Renegade Tribute. Whilst reading through the comments there are a few statements which are worth noting - one comment by 'Hammer' is very interesting as he gives a few examples of how the word Jotun translates -  Jude in German, Jøde in Norwegian and Jude in Swedish. The pattern is clear!

Another comment by Steed has also got me thinking - as Steed points out it is Thor's / Thunor's role as protector against the Giants (Jotun). The Swastika is the symbol of Thor. It is the Lightning cross and represents the hammer Miollnir in flight. The battle between Thor and the Giants could be symbolised by the Swastika against the Star of David!

Our English readers will find this heraldic shield of some interest. It is from the German town of Bünde in North Rhine-Westphalia Germany, and it is of Hengist and Horsa. English legend has it that these were brothers, even divine twins. But in the local stories the tale is that the shield represents the union (hence the towns name Bünde which means bund or bound) of Hengist and Horsa who were local chieftains - one Saxon and one Engern (the town of Enger is 10km away - and is the where Widukind's tomb and museum can be found). This story reflects England's Anglo-Saxon origins as England was founded by Hengist and Horsa - though it is clear that Germanic tribes have always lived on these islands. I've often doubted that Hengist and Horsa were their real names - as each means 'horse' and were probably war-titles. The predominate symbol of Westphalia is of course the White Horse. Its colours are red white and green, which we find in different combinations - red/white in England, green/white in Saxony and all three in Westphalia. It is the White Horse of Westphalia, also called the 'Saxon Steed' that gave Kent in the UK its coat of arms.

You may have seen in the news this week, that four German police officers were shot, one fatality, by a member of the Reichsbürger movement. Here is a link for anyone who missed this. Instantly the media called this man a neo-Nazi and extremist. What ties he had to National Socialism I don't know. I guess the use of the word 'Reich' within the name Reichsbürger probably makes people instantly think of the Third Reich. The  Reichsbürger movement is probably more akin to the Sovereign Citizen movements of America and the Freeman-Common Law movements in England. We know the current political systems in the US, in Germany and England are corrupt and we want change. These movements will naturally attract nationalistic volk.

One of the key elements of the Reichsbürger movements is that members wish to see a return to the original pre-war borders of Germany. As a National Socialist my thoughts on this are clear - Our Race is our Nation. Germany the Nation exists wherever German people have lived. We do not recognise geo-policial borders, but racial ones. I will also post an article soon of the word 'German' and its runic roots.

Going back to the word 'Reich'- we so often hear and read the word being translated as 'Empire' - which isn't the truest translation. Kingdom or land would be a better word. I often wonder if this is a deliberate attempt to make the Third Reich appear Imperialist - something it certainly wasn't! The word Reich is rooted in the proto Germanic language as is a word still used today to mean land. There are many examples across Germanic speaking parts of Europe. The capital of Iceland is Reykjavik - which is Reyk (Reich) Jarvik (town) or literally  the land's town (capital). Interestingly the name Jarvik is the same as Jorvik, which is now York in Northern England. In Sweden the term Reich is written as Rike -  for example France in Swedish is Frankrike or Land of the Franks.

A while back I posted an article about runes that were formed by two reflective runes. In this post I'd like to show how some runes have a rotation about them. This means that the rune looks the same whether drawn up or down, or rotated 180 degrees. These runes demonstrate how a symbol can hold a meaning and its direct opposite meaning at the same time.

If we look at the Wolf-Hook we find a perfect example of this. To me this is one of our most powerful runes. This rune strikes fear into an enemy. It identifies the wearer of this rune as an outlaw, or someone who resists. Those who use this rune identify themselves with the struggle of the wolf, hunted by the christian who feared this heathen totem. We can identify ourselves with this same struggle. 

Yet - this rune isn't just the rune of the hunted, but also the hunter. This is the Wolf Hook - the tool christians used to hunt this sacred animal. This devise was used to kill thousands of wolves - so many that they no longer exist in most of Europe. This rune both represents the christian hunter and the hook they used, as well as the heathens and wolves they hunted -  the outlaws and wolf-heads. Both opposites survive within this one rune.

The bases for this style of Wolf-Hook is the Eoh rune. Eoh is often used to mean the Yew. However the root of the word Yew in Old English is Eow - and it is this root which also gives us the word 'Ewe' meaning sheep. And it is this link which brings us back to the Wolf-Hook as it was often the sheep farmers who were responsible for hunting the Wolf. This practise died out in England when the wolf died out, but continues in Scandinavia even to this day. Though there are still many connections between the hunter and the hunted that do survive here in England. In the north especially, we find many pubs called the Wool-Pit. This name is taken from the Wolf-Pit, a hole dug in the ground and filled with spikes, used by sheep farmers to kill predators.    

So this is the Eow/Eoh rune. It is both the rune of the Sheep and the rune of the Wolf. The rune of the Hunter and the rune of the Hunted. Both opposites are found within the one rune. How this rune is used and how this rune is defined all depends on the intent of the user.
The rune Ansuz is the Rune of the Ancestors or Ahnen - a Blood memory rune and the rune of the Gods. We also know this rune as Oss - a name meaning 'God' and a prefix which has survived in many English names such as Oswald, Oswin etc.

The root of the Ansuz rune is in the Proto-Aryan word *ansu, which means spirit. Thus our ancestors (ansuz) are always with us. Their genes are in our blood, their souls form our National Folk-Soul. As I've mentioned in previous posts - it is this belief that led to the National Socialists of 30's Germany calling 'present' to the names of fallen komeraden. For their spirit marched with them, for now and forever.

The origins of the word 'God' are also very interesting. The ancient Germanic tribes used Ansuz to describe the gods - but only those whom they worshipped themselves. Alien gods were never afforded such titles. This is of course because the various folk-tribes of Europe descended from the various Gods of Europe, and our gods and goddesses can be counted amongst our ancestors.  The words 'God' 'Got' 'Gott' etc were also gender neutral in their origin. It was only after the conversion (corruption) of the European volk to christianity that the word became masculine. This can be seen in the original meaning of the word, which comes from the Proto-Aryan *ghut and means 'that which is invoked'.  Thus it is possible to invoke the gods through our blood. The belief in our gods and our belief in our race (blood) are inseparable.

Our belief in the gods and our blood is furthered by our rituals - called blots. The blot is a ritual designed to invoke a god or action, and part of this blot (the word coming from the Germanic word blut or blood) is a libation (pouring of mead or ale on the Earth). The root word *ghut (god) directly cognates with the root word *gheu which means 'to pour' or 'libation'.

A new book from our friends at Club 55 is ready to order from Amazon

Hitler's UFO against the New World Order by Miguel Serrano

This new English translation of Miguel Serrano is quite relevant for the world today. It is true that he spends the majority of time discussing the National Socialist origins of the UFO, but as strange as it may sound, this work is surprisingly very straight-forward and practical. His insights into such things as the struggle between Nationalism (traditions of character and uniqueness) and Globalism (faceless slaves of the New World Order), CIA drug trafficking and their instigation of the heroin epidemic, the “invented enemy” called terrorism and much more – are all prophetic of the present times which we are living in. One could think that he wrote this book last night, rather than over 25 years ago. Perhaps, that is exactly what he was looking to accomplish. How can those concrete foresight's not lend credibility to that which he speaks of the UFO? "It is down-right uncanny how Serrano can be so practical and make one prediction after another that have come to pass in a book about “UFOs”. Then again, we are speaking of Miguel Serrano, from whom we have come to expect such things."

Reflective runes

There are a number of runes which have a line of symmetry running down the middle. The rune is thus comprised of two runes facing each other which together creates a reflective rune. Along with these 'reflective' runes, in the various rune-rows we can see some runes are 'branch' runes (and not surprisingly these often represent trees) and we also have runes with a rotational aspect.   

Now, we have a synchronicity here. I was originally going to post an article to accompany the previous article on the Ehwaz rune - then the latest copy of the Woden's Folk magazine arrived with almost the same article within it. So I'll use aspects of both Wulf's article and my own post to demonstrate the reflective aspect of the Ehwaz rune.

Here we have the Ehwaz rune - which represents the White Horse. The rune also symbolises companionship and trust - thus it is used to represent marriage, and we can see in the rune the image of a couple holding hands.  At the same time with can see how the rune is formed by two Laguz runes. Laguz is connected to water, and its the root of our word lagoon. But Lag is also the root of the words lay and law - as used in our own Ar Kan Rune Lag. The word 'lay' has three meanings - one is to lie, as in to lay down - and can also mean 'to sleep with'. The second refers to a lay-man (a term borrowed by the christian church but originally any man not in a legal profession). It is also the root of the Germanic term 'lie' - which is a song.     

Guido von List viewed marriage as sacred. And whilst I value the importance of marriage - I also share the view that Himmler held - that children should born into a loving family, that a woman doesn't need to be a wife on order to be a good mother. Still, the National Socialist passed many laws requiring government officials be married as part of working for the NSDAP.  This union of man and wife, whether married or not, is certainly a sacred Germanic law. In fact if we look at many of the totem animals of the Germanic and Northern lands - we find that even they mate for life. Wolves, Owls, Eagles, Swans for example.  

So in this rune of marriage (Ehwaz) we can see aspects of the rune of law and 'laying' (sleeping with). Thus a deeper understanding of the rune develops.  

In this example we see the Daeg rune which means Day. Many volk see the rune as symbolising a sand timer, which makes sense.  We can also see how the rune is two reflecting Thorn runes. The Thorn rune is the thorn (needle) that sent Sleeping Beauty to sleep. The German for 'Sleeping Beauty' is  Dornröschen which is itself a word play on Rose Thorn. Thus one Thorn sends you to sleep and the other thorn  is a to awaken you. My youngest daughter has a small ritual hammer called 'Thorn of Awakening - with runes carved into the handle which invoke this idea.  A complete day in Germanic lore would have started at sun-down, so our days would have started when we went to sleep, but Daeg or Dagaz is also the root of Dawn (Anglo-Saxon dagung, Danish dagning).

The Odal rune- one of our most recognisable runes. We use this rune to symbolise our faith in Blood and Soil. However the rune is also the rune of Woden as the Hooded Man - and the version on the right in the colours of Black, White and Red represent the Mysteries of the Hooded Man prophecy. The Hooded Man holds the balance of light and dark, thus in this image we can see two Sieg runes facing. The rune is the lightning flash and its reverse is the Black Light - as seen on the Schwarze Sonne. Od which is the root of Odal, is hidden within the Hood - the Red Hood of Woden. Thus the rune is outlined in red. Within the rune is a Red Ing rune- representing the god Ing. This is a very complex rune, and the Hooded man mysteries are better described on the Woden's Folk websites. But once again we can see how a rune can revile a deeper mystery when viewed in this way.

Well, yesterday wasn't just the equinox - it was also my wedding anniversary! I still use the red cord used at my handfasting to decorate my ritual hammer. Guido von List used the Ehwaz rune to symbolise the marriage. It's easy to see how the rune can represent this union. A couple standing next to each other, holding hands.  Today the tradition family is under constant attack, for the tradition family - the father, mother and children - represent all that is wrong in the minds of those who seek our end - yet study after study show that the happiest people are those in stable relationships. 

Marriage is the root of the Aryan race! - Guido von List
