Sowilo and Sieg

Two important runes - Sowilo and Sieg. Both represent the letter S in the Anglo-Saxon and Germanic rune rows. The meaning of the runes overlap, but there are some small differences.

ALL runic lore is personal - and all rune-workers will develop their own interpretation of the runes over time. Books are an important guide to the runes, but rune-working and runic meditation will allow you to evolve your understanding of the Futhark to greater levels. Those who maintain such a ridged view of the runes, based on historical interpretations (which were more often than not recorded in christian times) will never progress from that interpretation. 

Back to the Sieg and Sowilo runes!

Both represent the Might of the Sun. Both represent the Victory of Light - thus a perfect Rune to symbolise the Actions of our National Socialist Weltanschauung. The Sieg rune is of course a very well known rune, which is part of the open handed greeting (thus non aggressive and a gesture of honesty) Sieg Heil - a subject which I'll cover in a moment.

The Sowilo rune also represents the Sun - and (for myself) another important element - Will. I often render this rune as Soul-Willow, which makes an easy rune galder (rune chant). It is the Will of the Soul - the Will of the Sun which leads us to Victory (Sieg) - The Triumpth of the Will'!

The Willow element itself can certainly be connected to the Willow tree, for the willow family is the Salix genus, with Sal being another root of Sol meaning Sun. The drug aspirin comes from this tree, thus the tree also has healing properties.  The letter 'S' is also represented  in the celtic Ogham as the Willow Tree - Saille. Sallie=Sal. Saille-Willow -Sowilo. 

Now the Sieg Heil salute!  It's infamous and described by our enemies as a gesture of hate, but in fact it is quite the opposite. Unlike the raised clenched fist of the communist - a symbol of their rage and willingness to violence - the Sieg Heil salute is an open handed gesture which shows it is non aggressive. The salute is sometimes called the Roman salute - based on the belief that the Romans used this sign as a greeting. The Americans prior to the World Wars did also use this salute in their schools. The USA is modelled on ancient Rome - their senate even has the Fasces symbols. (Indeed, America has become the New Rome and a world police.) It was Heinrich Himmler's belief that the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus had Nordic  / Germanic origins. Images of the twins even appear on the Anglo-Saxon Franks casket. Hezbollah also use the same open handed salute and claim this is an ancient salute from pre-Islamic times. The Scythians who once lived in this region are themselves distance cousins of the Germanic people, thus the salute continued into Germanic use.

Sieg represents the Sun and Victory - Heil represent Hail and Health, thus Victory Hail as well as a healing chant that invokes the power of the sun. The word 'salute' even seems from the same root - Sal, which we've mentioned already. To salute was to greet the Sun. It could be that we 'saluted' in order to protect our eyes when we faced the sun - or it could be derived from a runic posture.

The words Sun and Heil also overlap - for if we look at many of the Germano-celtic terms for Sun we find examples like Welsh 'haul' and the Breton word 'heol' which both mean Sun.

This rune is often associated the the concept of 'chance'. My own view is that this rune is another life rune - and relates to the 'chance of life' - and the chances we get in life.

The rune shape suggests that of new life growing with their mothers womb - a foetal shape, with the chances in life that are being given to the new baby, as Wyrd spins a new destiny and weaves into their family's tapestry.  

This is another sacred rune which we can use to bless and protect our young-folk.

For life before death!

Further to my post on the Black Sun being based on an Zierscheiben - I thought I'd share these many examples. 

Zierscheibe is German for "ornamental disk", and where found in women's graves and are thought to have been worn as pendants attached to the tunica, or as part of a belt pouch.

Early examples date to the Late Bronze Age (ca. 800 BC). They develop into characteristic designs notably attested from Alamannic graves from the migration period.

  The Östergötland Hammer

This famous version of the Östergötland Hammer holds a lot of power! Even in a modern reproduction piece, there is a connection to the past - thus a continuation of living history. Most folk who read my posts will know there are so many styles of hammer you can buy. A quick search online shows just how many - and certainly how many cheap imported hammers there are that have no Germanic qualities about them what so ever.

I'd like to think that the production of the Östergötland Hammer these days - especially by European / North American silversmiths continues the traditions - these hammers being a kind of 'third generational' in production. The original begin made during the Viking era. The 'second generation' was during National Socialist Germany, as Otto Gahrs company made faithful copies for SS members who had left the church to follow the spiritual path of our Germanic forefathers. Quality copies of the hammer are made today by silversmiths in England, Sweden and Amercia  represent this 'third generation'.

Theres certainly nothing wrong with choosing a modern design for a hammer - and making your own would be even better! But such an important symbol of our faith should also represent the history that the hammer symbolises - thus cheap imports from Asia that lack any Germanic quality should be avoided!

Allied Forces symbolism

I'd like to add a little to the excellent article on the Inglinga blog regarding the occult forces that were harnessed against the Germanic peoples during the Second World War.

Symbolism was another element that the Allies used as a means of control, certainly over the Germanic men and women that fought for the Allies against Germany.

The symbol used by the 'Allied Expeditionary Forces' was a flaming sword under a rainbow. To Wodensist this could be seen as the Flaming Sword of Surtur, a primaeval fire giant who according to the Icelandic saga's battles Frey (who in this case symbolises the Free people of Volkish Germany) at Ragnarok. The Rainbow is the Bifrost Bridge which he seeks to destroy. 

Sutr ferr sunnan
með sviga lævi:
skinn af sverði
sól valtiva.

Surtr moves from the south
with the scathe of branches:
there shines from his sword
the sun of Gods of the Slain.

Of course the German armies fought under runic emblems, and that most sacred of signs - the Swastika!

Recently I noticed this very interesting picture of a wood carving.

What I instantly noticed was the Suncross - the symbol of the Nasjonal Samling - was positioned over where the Aryan psychic eye or third eye would be! This Suncross was also called an Odin's Cross or Odin's Eye by Nasjonal Samling members! No doubt the will of Odin was at work when this was carved!

This Sunwheel is based upon the Hail rune. A six spoked wheel, which certainly contains some form of sacred geometry, and is perhaps connected to the measure of time.

This kind of Sunwheel is sacred to an almost lost Saxon God - Krodo. Most of the images we have of him seem to based upon a single concept - one of him standing upon a fish, whilst holding this 6 armed sunwheel in the sky. The fish, according to some sources is a Perch. In Krodo's other hand he carries a pail of water. 

Many scolars identify Krodo with another Saxon god, Saeter (Sater / Satur). Indeed Seater is connected with the measure of time. If we look at the stained glass window from Cardiff castle (below), we see the very same symbolism.

Saeter is identified with the Roman god Saturn - himself identified with the Greek god Cronus - from where the Saxons could have got the name Krodo.

 The Irminsul of Harbarnsen-Irmenseul

A modern representation of the World Pillar with a Sunwheel on top symbolising the Irminsul, in the districts of Harbarnsen-Irmenseul. It is easy to see how these symbols could have evolved into the 'celtic cross' - an addition to Irish and Scottish culture thanks to invading Norse and Viking armies.

The spelling Irmenseul is very interesting - as the symbol of the Sunwheel is where the christians got the image for the halo which identified religious figures in their early art. The word Halo stems from the root *khailaz which gives us the rune Hagalaz and is the root of the word holy.

An early christian mosaic of Jesus - his divinity symbolised by the 'sunwheel' halo.

This concept wasn't a christian one - for images of the Buddha also included a halo, as shown in this sculptor

The Halo was a means of indicating the spiritual divinity of the individual - it represented their soul - or divine light. This may be the reason why we find the spelling of the German district 'Irmenseul' - Irmins Soul. The Sunwheel is the halo which crowns the Saxon god Irmin. The Sunwheel is obviously a Solar symbol. A BBC documentary studied the symbolism of early christian art and concluded that the much of the imagery used to depict Jesus had been borrowed from the pagan sun-cults, and the halo was a sign of the Sun-god.

The Wolf Hook in German heraldry

Many places in Germany include runic emblems - especially the Wolf Hook - in their heraldic history. These are just a few examples from many hundreds.




This shield contains the Wolf Hook - the Saxon white horse, and the German Eagle

Another Saxon design - this shield includes the Hengest and Hors crossed horse head gable ends.

From Nienhagen

This shield includes the Bundschuh symbol of the peasant revolts.

Heydrich Tristan Eugen Reinhard 

This emblem is the personal runebinding for SS-Obergruppenführer Heydrich Reinhard.

The binding is based upon the Hagal rune as the central rune.

All the runes - H (Hagal) T (Tyr) E (Eh) R (Rit) - (his initials) can be found in the binding.
