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.

Loki the Semite?

The image above is a scan from one of Ralph Blum's Runic books. You may remember it was Blum who 'invented' the blank rune (sic). The image was taken from a section regarding the ancestral rune Ansuz. What is interesting here is that he describes the ancestral god as Loki. For us Europeans, our ancestral god would be Woden (Anglo-Saxon) Wotan (German) Odin (Norse) etc. But Blum, who is jewish, states that it is Loki who is the ancestral god.

In reality, Loki himself is NOT one of the gods - he is one of the Jotun. The term Jotun is very important - meaning a 'giant', the name is etymologically rooted in the word 'Juden'.

In the Saga's, Loki takes his mothers surname -  Loki Laufjarson – which is a jewish tradition. Loki's mother Laufey was also known by the name Nal, which is written in Hebrew as 'משך' and translates as 'Duration'.

Many people  believe that there is a connection between Saturn and the jews, (see the book 'Saturn's Jews' for example). Saturn itself is the root of Satan - a Semitic god who is alien to our pantheons. However if you research the planet Saturn, you'll discover that some of the moons are named after the offspring of Loki. Some of the moons of Saturn include - Fenrir, Loge (the Germanic name for Loki), Surtur and Skoll. There are many other Nordic inspired names - as well as names taken from Roman myths - and most of the names are taken from Giants and Titans and not from the gods or goddesses.

Loki has gained somewhat of a 'following' recently as a result of the many comic based films which include Loki and Thor as superhero characters. But even in these films Loki still manifests with the intent of spreading his destruction. In many of the comics and graphic novels, he is  depicted as a bisexual. Another aspect which seems to have become common symbolism for Loki are the two golden horns on his helmet. I've an idea as to the origins of this, perhaps they symbolise the golden horns of the Golden Calf which the jew Aaron created by confiscating all the gold from the Israelites whilst Moses received the  Ten commandments. This 'ritual' of gold confiscation was the bases of the 1932 Gold Confiscation Act (USA). Many Saga's tell of Loki and his lust for gold, such as stealing Idunn's golden apples, or Sif's golden hair.


As many of my readers will no doubt be Burzum fans - I thought I'd add a little extra to the post regarding the excellent album cover for Dauði Baldrs. The pointed hat (like that worn by the shady character bearing the death rune) was an item of clothing that jews were forced to wear in medieval Germany so that they could be distinguished from christian folk.

Rune of the Hooded Man

Today is the Eventide - which is the English term for the Equinox, which means 'Equal Night', so I though today would be the ideal day to explain about the image above which is used by various Wodenists here in England.

Firstly the rune is of course the Odal rune - Od being the root of Odin/Woden as well as 'Hood'. The picture is in the three sacred colours of Germania - the Black White and Red. The outline is red which represents the Red Hood which symbolises the initiated. There are many examples of 'Red Hoods' in fairy tales. These are often indications of the initiated and initiation rites.   

Secondly, the Odal rune is split into two halves, one side white, the other black. On one level we can see two Sowilo (Sig/Sigel) runes. One white Sowilo rune and one reversed black sowilo rune (as in the Black Sun). These two runes (binding to form one Odal rune) represent the balance of Light and Dark. It can also represent Baldeag (Baldur) and Hod as gods of light and dark. Hod again refers to the hood or darkness - remember Hod is also blind.

As an archetype of the Hooded Man, many Wodenists use the figure of Robin Hood to symbolise the son of Woden who holds the two forces in balance. The name Robin comes Robert which means Roth-Beorht (meaning Fame-Bright) which is the light, and Hood which is a kenning for the dark. 

As heathens we always seek to find a balance is life. As many apsects of life seem dominated by the conflict of opposites, such as night and day, darkness and light, life and death, left and right etc. - we always seek to balance these forces of influence so that we always remain on a true path. This worldview makes our faith very different to christians who only seek the light, and satanists, who only seek the dark. Both are unbalanced - both are alien to our worldview.

The power of light and the power of darkness will be strong within him - 
and the guilty shall tremble.

(Woden's Folk quote)

In an article -here-  Wotans Krieger uses a painting by Emil Doepler called Wodan Heilt Balders Pferd, or Wodan heals Baldurs horse. I've often wondered about the symbolism in this painting, and especially symbolism around the two goddesses sitting next to each other.

The painting is based on the (second) Merseburg charm, which reads -

Phol ende uuodan uuorun zi holza.
du uuart demo balderes uolon sin uuoz birenkit.
thu biguol en sinthgunt, sunna era suister;
thu biguol en friia, uolla era suister;
thu biguol en uuodan, so he uuola conda:
sose benrenki, sose bluotrenki, sose lidirenki:
ben zi bena, bluot si bluoda,
lid zi geliden, sose gelimida sin!

Phol and Wodan were riding to the woods,
and the foot of Balder's foal was sprained
So Sinthgunt, Sunna's sister, conjured it.
and Frija, Volla's sister, conjured it.
and Wodan conjured it, as well he could:
Like bone-sprain, so blood-sprain,
so joint-sprain:
Bone to bone, blood to blood,
joints to joints, so may they be mended.

The two gods depicted in the painting are Wodan and Phol (another name used by Baldur). The goddesses named are Frija (Volla's sister) and Sinthgunt (Sunna's sister). The painting depicts three goddesses. I believe that Frija is the goddess partially hidden by Wodan's arm, whilst the two goddesses sitting behind the horse are Sunna, the Sun goddess (the golden goddess) and her sister Sinthgunt. There is little information regarding who the goddess Sinthgunt is - she is not named in any other literature. Some people have suggested that as sister to the sun, and with her dark appearance she represents the moon. However we know that the Moon is masculine whilst the Sun is feminine, and that the moon god is called Mani. So that doesn't seem right to me. Whilst researching possible roots as to the origins of her name - two aspects became clear - her name is connected to the shade or shadow and to the Indo-Aryan concept of spinning.  As her sister Sunna is the holy Sun - the golden sun that shines her healing rays and gives us life - I believe the symbolism surrounding Sinthgunt, especially as she seems to hold opposite aspects of Sunna suggests that she is possibly a goddess of the Black Sun?

The Rune of the Eagle

When visualising the runes I often see flashes of 'inspiration' that lead me to research a certain word or idea. This often leads to more ideas and a better understanding of the runes - and our interpretation of the runes grows. Never believe that the runes and their meanings will never change - for they constantly evolve.

Today, whilst visualising the Ear rune I saw the rune transform in my mind. The rune stave morphed into an Eagle, its out stretched wings with a long tail. Its well noted that the 'Ar' rune is connected to the Eagle, however I believe that the Ear rune is and extension of the Ar rune and that their meanings and symbolism overlap.

In the article here - I connect the Ar and Ear rune to the concept of Nobility and the Aryan, via the runes connection to farming and wheat - remember the Ar rune is also the rune of the plough. The root of 'Eagle' is from the Germanic 'Arnuz', which is rooted in the Ar rune - the Old English is Earn, rooted in the rune Ear - the old Gothic term is Ara - which links the Eagle with the Aryan and Nobility (Ara-Ehre) -  The Eagle is a the symbol of the Aryan race.

If you read the post on the Woden's Folk blog - here - you can see how one symbol can represent two opposing forces.  The Eagle is another symbol which fits this idea. The Eagle a sign of the Aryan Volk, especially the Germanic peoples - and can been seen as a symbol idealising both the ancient Germanic tribes under Herman the Cherusci and the Roman armies that tried to conquer Germania.  Rarely seen on the Herman statue in Germany is Germany's national hero crushing the Roman Eagle into the ground. 

Ar-Kan Rune-Lag

For those interested in the esoteric aspects of the runes - In Wulf's Prophecy there is a section that refers to the 'Triangle'. I believe that this is the summer Triangle that is made of the three stars -Altair, Deneb, and Vega. These three stars are each found in the constellations Aquila, Cygnus, and Lyra respectively. The Long Man in Sussex is a representation of this. Aquila is the Latin term for Eagle. Deneb represents the tail of the Swan (Cygnus) and the Head of an Eagle. The constellation of Cygnus is also a representation of the Ear rune, so it seems that the Rune could represent the Swan (Valkyrie) in its feminine form an the Eagle (Woden) in is masculine form.

Tyr-Tiw the rune of  'Higher knowledge and militant bearing'.

 Karl Theodor Weigel - National Socialist runologist

The Tyr rune is named after the god Tyr, whom we Saxons call Tiw. As the National Socialist runologist K.T.Weigel (1892-1953) states in his book 'Runes and Symbols' - this is the rune of Higher knowledge and militant bearing. These are attributes given to Tiw as the god of war and justice. The rune itself is connected to the symbol for 'male' which derives from the astrological sign for Mars, the Roman name for Tiw.

On an esoteric level the rune can be seen as a upwards path (the central stave) leading up the sacred mountain - symbolism I've seen in dreams before. Thus it is a rune of sacrifice and struggle, again symbolised in the saga of Tyr who sacrifices one hand to the Fenris wolf. If you look at the rune it is itself a symbol of a man upright with his two arms either side. The name Tiw etymologically means Two, however after his sacrifice we can see by removing one arm that it becomes the Lagu rune - itself symbolising the Warrior.

Tiw gives his name to Tuesday - and is himself the ancestral god of the Teutonic tribes. His name connects to the Proto-Germanic theudanoz, from PIE teuta-, the common word for "people, tribe" which cognates with the Lithuanian tauto, Old Irish tuath, Gothic þiuda, and Old English þeod * meaning race or nation.

* this is the root of the name Theoden from Tolkien's Lord of the Rings - and Theodor, Karl Weigel's middle name.

The runes are a part of the Germanic mindset  - and  as an extension we find numerous 'runic' symbols across the entire Aryan world. Now the most common 'complaint' thrown at the volkisch heathen is that the 'Nazis' misused the runes! Bear in mind it was a jew who invented the blank rune and wiccans who invented 'celtic' runes. The simple truth is that the Nation Socialists did more to revive the ancient Germanic traditions and bring runic lore back to the forefront of Germanic culture than anyone else in the modern era.

To prove this here is a simple 'test' anyone can perform. Try searching google images for the various runes. If you search for 'Odal rune', 'Life rune,' 'Tyr rune' etc. nearly every picture it brings up has a volkisch element to the image. This is not because that google has chosen these images at random - its because these images represent the most sort after image connected to a search of that name. The association between the runes and National Socialism is clear - and what this proves is that the use of the runes is dominated by the Volkisch Germanic Heathen, that the runes are still prominent within the Volkisch Germanic mindset - and it is the 'anti racist' pagans and wiccans who misuse them.
