Thule is Rising
The Black Sun is shining
Rudra is hunting
and Kali is smiling.

Thule is Rising
The Wind-Swept Tree's shaking
Shiva is dancing
and Orion is waking.

Thule is Rising
The Third Eye is seeing
Vidar is speaking
and Himmler is gleaming.

Thule is Rising
The Three Norns are weaving
Ostara is singing
and the Wanderer's healing.

Isa - Is - the Ice rune

I know stories of some people using this rune - invoking this rune - and this is something you should never do lightly. Isa is a powerful rune. Its simplicity is the key here. A single straight stave, the icicle, the individual, being alone, the 'I'.  Invoking this rune can leave those who invoke it feeling paranoid as friends and family desert them.

To invoke Isa is to invoke isolation. And this seems to be the very root of the rune. We connect the rune with Ice and the rune poems tell of its icy properties. But this is just a poetic translation, for the harsh winters of the North would have left the families and communities isolated.

Isolated is rooted in 'Isa' and we can see an example in the old French word  isolé (Isolate). The word has evolved and used in English in the words isle and island, The name 'Iceland' is probably the best example of how the name invokes both meanings of the root - Icy and Isolated!

I've added a new link here to the Black Order. The original group from NZ was very similar to the White Order of Thule (USA) and  I'm sure many readers will be interested in their work. I have some of their early publications somewhere, and will post some photos later.

Solstice greetings - frohe Sonnenwende!

We know the words Jul,Jol and Yule are connected with the old Germanic words for wheel - thus the yearly cycle. But the Nordic word Jol is also the root of the word Jolly!

Today is just the start of the solstice period. For three days the sun 'stands still' meaning there is no visible distinction in the length of light- solstice means Sol-still. Sol is a Germanic name for the sun as well as a Latin name. To us Saxon folk she is Sunna. It is on the forth day, typically christmas day - that there is any noticeable change in the length of light and the Sun is reborn. It is easy to see how the church converted this to the birth of the Son. And it is why so many pagan gods are born on this day - as they are sun gods. So in one aspect christmas is the true first day of the year, or at least the Solar year.  The church also referred to their messiah as 'Lord' which made excepting christianity even easier as the pagan folk already had a god amongst their own - Frey, whose name meant Lord. In the Gothic translations of the bible Jesus was called Frauja, again the same name was used for Frey. The christmas roast boar (or pork) is a continuation of his worship. 

Today the churches are empty, but the traditions of Easter and Christmas remain. It is true they are not much more than materialistic rituals of shopping and self indulgence today, but underneath all this corruption we can still find the true origins of these holidays in our heathen past. This is why they still survive. The Call of the Blood is still there, folk will hear that call, and folk will answer that call. The Sun is reborn, and she will light our way!

God: An Aryan Understanding

GOD sleeps in the rock,
breathes in the plant,
dreams in the animal
and awakens in man.

Gott: eine Arische Einsicht

GOTT schläft im Stein,
atmet in der Pflanze,
träumt im Tier
und erwacht im Menschen.
