During the National Socialist years some occultists refrained from using terms like Jesus and Christ. In fact references to Jesus, shepherds and angels had already been banned from children's books. Instead they used the name Frauja, the name of Jesus as it was written in the Gothic bible. Frauja is a title, meaning lord - but it was also the Gothic name of the Vanir lord and god Frey. No doubt the use of the name was a deliberate tactic by early christians as a means of converting the pagans to christianity - by sharing the same name for their 'lord' as the god Frey. As one of the symbols of Frey was the wild boar, this is most likely the origins of the yuletide roasted boar or pig. A feast which would have been held in his honour. This custom has almost died out in England, replaced by the American imported tradition of eating Turkey. It hasn't helped that there is a deliberate attempt to destroy pig farming in the UK by the state. Fuelled by recent media stories about how pig products give you cancer! (I thought it was all the chemicals big food industries added to their products - including chemicals added to animal feed!) Walter Darre was no doubt right when he pointed out the pig was a symbol of civilised folk. The nomadic tribes of the middle east - be they semitic or otherwise would not have been able to herd pigs, thus they became a shunned animal in their eyes.
Yuletide and Thor
The imagery surrounding Santa most notably comes from Woden-Odin, especially in the Low countries where 'christmas' is celebrated on the 6th December - which was originally known as 'Little Yule' or 'Wodan's Day' (Wodan with an A is the Low countries spelling). However in the Nordic countries, Santa inherited many attributes from Thor. Even his Reindeer inherited the names Donnar and Blitzen or Thunder and Lightning! In the Northern lands it is the Julbock - the Yule Goat, who carries Santa around as he hands out presents to the children.
The Yule Goat which has its origins as Thor's goat.
The sacred colours of Yule are the sacred colours of Germania! The black Ivy berry - the white Mistletoe - the red Holly. The plants have the most association within European solstice traditions. These colours are also the colours of the Three Norns - who rule over the three days when the sun stands still (from where we get the term solstice Latin or Sunstead English, literally the sun stands still) which run from the 21st, the start of the solstice - to the 24th. The 25th is the first day of the new Solar year, hence the sun is reborn. The Norns are the sacred Mothers - which is why our ancestors celebrated Mother's Night at this time. Nuremberg in Germania is of course the seat of the Norns!

When we National Socialists speak of a belief in God, by God we do not understand, as do naive Christians and their clerical beneficiaries, a manlike being who is sitting around in some corner of the sphere… the force which moves all these bodies in the universe, in accordance with natural law, is what we call the Almighty or God… The more thoroughly we know and attend to the laws of nature and life, the more we adhere to them, the more do we correspond to the will of the Almighty. The deeper our insight into the will of the Almighty, the greater will be our success.
– Reichsleiter Martin Bormann
The Three Sisters
The story of the three wise men who follow a star until they arrive at the birth of jesus is really the story of the solstice and the rebirth of the sun.
This year the Solstice starts on the 22nd and is the day with the longest night. For the next three days the length of daylight stays the same. It is not until the 4th day - usually around the 25th or xmas day is there a measurable change in the length of daylight.
We should not dismiss the christian idea of xmas being the birth of the 'son' - as early christians based their imagery of jesus upon the sun-god Apollo and other Sun-heroes who were born on this day. Xmas day is really the first day of the new Solar Year, and heralds the birth of the Sun God - be he Mithra, Apollo, Helgi, Horus, Krishna or Krist (amongst others).
However the three wise men were no doubt the three Norns - as it is the Norns who rule over the three days prior to xmas - three days when the sun stands still (from were we get the term Solstice and Sunstead meaning the Sun is Still). The Three Norns are represented by the three Stars of Orion's Belt - Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka. The Boer still call these stars the Drie Susters (Three Sisters).
The Norns standing over the cradle with a child. In one of their hands a Norn carries a distaff. The distaff later became a symbol of Frigg - and the name of Orion's Belt is still called Frigg's (also Freya's) Distaff by some. Such an important heathen symbol - christianity later sainted the symbol of the distaff. Saint Distaff day is the first day after the 12 days of christmas or 7th January - which is christmas day according to the orthodox church.

The SS Family.
This is a wonderful reprint by the 55 Club of Fritz Weitzel's 'SS Family Celebrations' book. Weitzel was one of the many SS men who left the church in order to embrace the new religion of National Socialism. His original book was a guide for SS men eager to learn about the pagan origins of many of the christian holidays and how they could practice these customs removed of their judeo-christian distortions. Weitzel describes the origins of Yule, Easter and many of the runes amongst other things.
Many years ago Ulric of England reproduced an excellent version of this book - which are now very much sort after and can be costly. For people interested in Weitzels work, there is a pdf file which can be found online, which is based on Ulric's copy, however it sadly contains many mistakes. The author wrongly translates Jul - meaning Yule or the Solstice (German Sonnenwende) into July - which is like translating winter into summer! So for anyone interested in this classic Aryan work, the reprinting of this book by the 55 Club is excellent news. Not only have the 55 Club accurately translated Weitzels work, they have expanded the book with numerous Germanic songs, poems and pictures all fitting for the appropriate custom and holiday. This is certainly a worthy book to have in your collection - and with the sonnenwende only weeks away the production of this book right now could not be more timely! Well done to the 55 Club for bringing this book back into circulation!
original 1930's edition.
Oh, Black Sun!
Absorb me in thy light
Faster than light from
The Golden Sun
And take me up into
The inexistence of
The Green Thunderbolt
Where the Maestros dwell
Of my Maestro
And the highest Guides of
Enflesh me into thy existence
More real than all existing
And help me to realize
The Resurrection of the A-Mada.
The return of the Führer, Adolf Hitler
The re-creation of Esoteric Hitlerism
And possession of the Archetype
Until the consummation of his Myth
And his Legend
In Resurrection with the body of
Let me return to the Black Sun.”

The custom has developed of remembering the dead of the war and of the movement by throwing wreaths into the solstice fire. For several years, the SS has organized a strong, manly dance with torches that ends with the lighting of the fire. The impact of the solstice fire comes more through actions and symbols than through words. The last part of the march to the site of the fire is silent. The speech at the site of the fire must be brief and compelling. It must be an appeal to action, not simply a statement that our ancestors celebrated this way a long time ago. The experience of the towering flames, the winter stars, and the snow-covered German landscape means more to us than words.

“As long as our people remain true to the customs of our fathers, as long as the flames burn from the mountain tops at mid-summer solstice and from the German countryside at mid-winter, so long will glow the spark of enthusiasm that will burst into flame when the people most needs it, the flame in which the traitors, troublemakers, and liars who threaten our people will meet their well-deserved end.”
- Friedrich Ludwig Jahn

Happy Wodan's Day!
Today is Wodan's Day, not to be confused with Wednesday, but the feast of Wodan which is held on the 6th December. This day is sometimes known as Little Yule. I've used a continental Germanic spelling here, as Odin-Woden is known in the Low Countries by the name Wodan, where this particular holiday is still observed.
This day is now known as St Nicolas day, but we know Nicolas as a christianised form of the Northern God. Much of Wodan's symbolism has still survived and can be seen in Nicholas. The sacred colours of Germania - Red White and Black - Santa's traditional 'home' at the North Pole (Thule), and in Europe (unlike here in England were 'Santa' is normally pulled in his sleigh by reindeer) he is still often depicted riding a white horse, which is such important Aryan symbolism, and represents the fact he is a Sun-Solar god. It's no wonder that many fundamentalist christians reject the pagan tradition of christmas and call Santa Claus 'Satan Claus'! And to be fair, the name 'Old Nick, which is one used in England for the devil, is both a reference to Nicolas, but also was a name used by Woden of the English!!

The good folk over at MD have released a 'kultural' blog, which I was unaware off until they asked me to give a short Q&A on my favourite books! The blog contains some excellent articles on a whole range of subjects that Volkisch Runology readers will certainly enjoy. Click picture to follow link!

The rune in the flag is the Jera rune - also known as the Ger,Year etc. The rune represents the turning of the Year - and other aspects of the yearly cycle, the summer and winter seasons, sowing and harvest, life and death and so on. In this rune we see the idea of Natural Order - and for me this is the esoteric meaning for this rune - the Rune of Natural Order. Hidden within this rune we see yet another rune, for the space between the two components of the Jera rune themselves form a hidden Victory rune - for there is no law higher than the laws of Nature and She will always have the greater say!

I've posted articles (and a short video) about the runic elements of the Ehrenring before, however there is a lot more symbolism within the ring which goes unnoticed.
The Sieg-Sig runes for example are displayed within triangles. The Sieg rune within the triangle represented the triumph of the will, with the three sides of the triangle representing the three fold aspects of birth-life-death and past-present-future, symbolising the life long commitment the SS man had to National Socialism.
The Hagall (Hagal) rune represents Heil. Together with the Sieg rune we get the runic formula Sieg Heil! Not only does this mean Hail Victory, but also Good Health! The Hagal rune within the hexagon forms a symbol which many Armanen runologists refered to as the 'Mother' rune - as symbol from which all the Armanen runes could be found.
All of the pendants and rings I own are made from silver, in fact if you look around the internet nearly all heathen and National Socialist rings and Thor's Hammers are made from silver. This seems to be a continuation from the National Socialist tradition to craft our jewellery from silver as it was National Socialist policy to use silver and not gold. Himmler had a personal distaste for dealing in gold as he believed gold was a currency of Judaism!

The truth is always stronger than the lie.
Our enemy regularly misquoted Goebbels. He was often misquoted saying- “Truth is the greatest enemy of the state”.
This is the most commonly used false Goebbels quotation. The full version:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
This quotation is in fact a total fabrication - and many websites even attribute the quote to Joseph M. Goebbels - despite the fact Goebbels middle initial wasn't 'M'.
The quotation at the top of the post however is a true quotation.
The truth is always stronger than the lie.

Our thoughts are with Fance!
Terrible atrocities swept France last night. No doubt there will be a huge backlash against the muslim invaders (it's almost certain these terrorists will be immigrants), but we must stay calm and look at the bigger picture here - one which effects the whole of Europa - ask yourself, who opened Europa's borders? Who allows mass and unchecked immigration into Europe? Who benefits the most from these attacks? National Socialist Germany once lit a torch and exposed the dark lodges and the evil they do. Until we address the root causes to the problems the European race and continent face, these kind of attacks will continue.

We must not raise the hand of peace,
The hand shown free of sword,
The fist that’s clenched acceptable,
For this we must applaud?
The hand that’s open, raised and true,
The hand of peace on earth to you,
Is mocked and banned as dirt on shoe;
But we defy our masters.
We must not raise the hand of Rome,
Of Saxon, King and Slave,
The Sun Wheel or the Swastika,
For such their lives they gave.
The hand held high toward the sun,
Protected by the sword and gun
But now the wheel of fortune’s spun,
Now we defy our masters.
This style of Wolf Hook has been made popular due to the conflict in Eastern Ukraine, where our Slavic cousins have adopted the symbol as their 'Symbol of Resistance' against pro Russian forces.
The emblem itself is said to represent the letters N and I - or National Idea, and is being used by various Nationalist groups, including paramilitaries such as Azov, who also use the Black Sun.
This style of Wolf Hook is often associated with the Black Flag companies of the peasants revolts - as well as National Socialism. The Wolf Hook was made a popular symbol in Germany thanks to the book Warwolf, which carried a Wolf Hook on the cover, like these examples below.
As you will have noticed I've had a short break and done some travelling, but I'm back just in time for our sacred day tomorrow to update the blogs! To get the ball rolling again I've this fascinating article on the Wolf-Hook by National Socialist and runologist Kurt Renck-Reichert where he describes is how thoughts on the origins of the runic symbol. He describes the rune as a protective rune, used against evil magic, but also as a warning against the presents of wolves. A full translation will follow sometime soon.
What readers will find interesting is Reichert's idea of the Hook being a runebinding - as seen below.

Our religion is a religion of race - and our gods are gods of the blood. The very word 'blood' is sacred to us National Socialists! Our religious rituals are called 'Blots', which means blood. A reminder that in times past our rituals and offerings were exactly that! Sacrifices to the Gods and oaths sworn in blood. All of the Germanic words for blood stem from the Proto-Indo-European word *bhlo-to. Interestingly the Greek word for blood is Haima - which I spoke about in the article here.
But the word 'blood' (blut -German, blod-Old English, blôd-Saxon) is just one expression for 'blood'. In the Aryan Sanskrit we find another, in that the word 'asrk' also means blood. This comes from the PIE *esen which gives us words such as the Greek word *ear (blood) and Latin aser (blood) - words which seem to be connected to our words Asa, Ese, Aesir etc.
The words for blood which have the 'esen' root are not used in the Germanic languages to mean 'blood'. However it could be that when our ancestors spoke of the Aesir and the Ese (Anglo Saxon Aesir) they spoke of the spiritual aspect of the Blood - the Gods and Goddesses who dwell within our race and live with in our blood.

The book 'Voice of our Ancestors' by Wulf Sörensen was dedicated to the pagan Snow White. The character Snow White is really another aspect of the eternal goddess of Germania. Her black hair, snow white skin and bright red lips are symbolic of the eternal colours of Germany. This archetypal symbolism has survived, even within the Disney cartoons of today.

Widar and HarmWulf
This image is taken from one of the many different covers of the Wehrbauern classic Der Wehrwolf (The WarWolf). The book was made famous during National Socialist Germany. This picture certainly holds certain important symbolism, as we can clearly see the Summer Triangle star formation, which I believe signifies awakening of the folk-conscience and the rising of the folk-hero. The WarWolf is about one such hero- HarmWulf, who leads a Saxon revolt during the oppressive Thirty Years War. It was through this character that Hermann Lons made the Wolf-Hook such an important resistance symbol. The symbols of the Stary Triangle and the Wolf-Hook are also connected to the forest god Widar (He who Returns) - and as we can see from the following section of Wulf's Prophecy (bottom), is linked to the Triangle. Interestingly the Flemish folk used both the Triangle (Delta) and the Wolf-Hook together as emblems for their Volkisch movements. And we should not forget what we called 'Anglo-Saxon' England includes much Flemish, Dutch and Frisian blood - which really makes England a Germanic Confederacy.
At the Centre of the Tree,
The Black Sun shines, tho' few can see:
Through the Triangle shall come
Widar - The Avenging Son!

The Wolf Hook and the Eoh rune
This style of Wolf Hook is based on the rune Eoh (Eihwaz) which is the Yew rune. The Yew, in my personal opinion represents the Yggdrasil tree - which in one aspect is the Yew-Dale home to the hunter god Wuldor.
If you look at the Armanen Yr-Yew rune, which is most commonly seen as the 'death rune' - we see that the rune is in the image of the Yew tree. A central stave is the trunk, with the Yew trees low branches. The Anglo-Saxon Eoh rune looks very different, however the rune still represents the Yew tree, this time the rune shows the life cycle of the tree.
Yew trees grow when a branch from an old Yew reached the ground. This branch will develop roots and a new trunk will take root and grow. New branches grow from this tree, and the cycle continues.
The Death rune is based on the runic image of the Yew with the trees low hanging branches. Because of the Yews association with death and our forefathers belief in the afterlife, our ancestors held their Bael blots (death-rites) under Yew trees. The christians later continued using these same sites, thus so many graveyards contain Yews.
I've often associated this style of Wolf Hook with the constellation of Orion - see my article here. Orion the Hunter is Wuldor the Hunter, who dwells in the Yew-Dale. He often takes on the role of Woden during the winter months - as the Constellation of Orion rises in the west during the winter.
