The Black Sun of the Ancient World

It has always been puzzling as to why there are two distinct and different tales told of Baldaeg and 'Blind' Hod, one by Snorri who has Balder as the hero, the other by Saxo who has Hod as the hero. Maybe here we have the Eternal Battle between the White Sun (Balder) and the Black Sun (Hod)? this would explain why there are two versions of this myth. Indeed, in the Saxo version we find that the Wyrd Sisters intervene in order that Hod gets the sword Miming that will give him victory over Baldaeg. 

Miming means 'Memory of Ing' or even 'Memory of the Blood'; this is thus associated with Blind Hod. Woden has one eye open and one that is 'black'; he also appears as a 'Black Void' inside a Black Hood or Red Hood. The name 'Ingus' means 'son of' and in Welsh Lore a figure called Mabon has the same meaning to his name - 'son of'. Of interest is a legend connected to Mabus who is the Divine Child. 

We find a mysterious hunt for Mabon, the Divine Child, in Culhwch and Olwen where a series of totem animals are asked as to the whereabouts of Mabon. These beasts clearly represent the theme of great age, each one being an older race than the one before it. Only the oldest of these, the Salmon of Llyn Llyw, knows where the Divine Child is imprisoned. This suggests to me a dim remembrance of the Black Sun that shone above Thule-Hyperborea in the most ancient times of the world. This is why only the oldest of the beasts - the salmon - knew of the whereabouts of Mabon. 

The theme around Mabon is that of a Divine Child who is taken from his rightful place, found by the question as to his whereabouts being asked to a number of totem animals and birds, and restored to his rightful place. This theme is not unlike that of another Welsh figure Bladud, whose alternative name is Baldadus according to Geoffrey of Monmouth - Balder! Bladud is the son of Rhud Hudibras, clearly the Norse Hodr. The word 'Rhud' is most likely 'Rhod' meaning 'wheel' (from the Teutonic Rad-Rune), the 'Wheel of the Sun'. The name 'Bladud' means -

Bal/Bla - bright, light.

Dud/Dydd - dark.

This name is the same as that of 'Robin Hood' - "Fame-Bright Hood' - who is Woden or Hooden as found in Kent. There is something of extreme importance here, and that is the theme of Baldaeg and Hod returning after Ragnarok, hand in hand. I have suggested before that any return to a Golden Age would not be as 'innocent children' as before, but as 'adults' with the faculty of knowing what we do, with a consciousness of knowing through the strengthening of the 'I', and not its dissolution into the 'All'. This suggests a balance of the conscious and subconscious minds - balance of Light and Darkness. Thus Bladud and Robin Hood, a fusion of Baldaeg-Hod or Rhod Hudibras-Baldadus. 

This imprisonment of the 'Divine Son' is perhaps the imprisonment of the 'Divine Sun' - a play-on-words. We find the ancient Kronos imprisoned on an island, awaiting the time when he will awaken again. Kronos is the Roman Saturn who is also the figure of Old father Time. Saturn, it appears, is 'imprisoned' by the Rings of Ice which one day may melt away, freeing this figure from the clutches of the Dark Powers.  If Saturn is Surtur then this planet (or its moons) will play a part in the Fires of Ragnarok, when Surtur wields the Sword of Victory and throws fire on the Nine Worlds. 

An alternative name for the Cweorth-Rune is TRIS which, backwards, spells SIRT - this is a Rune of Fire, the Fire-Twirl that whisks the cosmos into creation. This force is one of Creation-Destruction like Rudra-Shiva and Woden as the One-Eyed Hunter-God who leads the Wild Hunt. Interestingly, the rune-name Sweorth also suggests a Flaming Sword. Surtur wields the Flaming Sword - the Sword of Victory - at Ragnarok. In the Ar-Kan Runes the Ear-Rune is 'The Hanged God', but it is also the 'Bound Giant' since the hands are 'bound'. The Cweorth-Rune is that of the 'Bound Giant' who has been freed and thus wields the Flaming Sword

Now, the words Sword and Sun are connected in their root-words, and here we do have a hint of the Black Sun in these two runes, the latter being a Rune of Transformation. Through the figure of the Long Man of Wilmington these ideas are connected to Waendel and thus to the Precession of the Equinoxes. It was perhaps no coincidence that on August 10th 1999 I went to the Long Barrow on Windover Hill above the Long Man and buried there 8 Ale Bottles in the shape of the Fylfot-Swastika. Each one had the label of a 'Millennium Ale' bearing 'Old Father Time' holding a blond-haired, blue-eyed baby in his arms. Each bottle also contained the words of an invocation. The next day at 11.00am on 11th August 1999 this talisman was empowered with the Solar Eclipse - resurrecting the god known as Ingus. 

None of this was done consciously but was obviously for a purpose unknown to me at the time. The Long Man is also symbolic of Cygnus the Swan, the marker for the Black Hole at the centre of our Milky Way Galaxy. There seems to be more importance to the god Ingus that we find within Norse Mythology with the figure of Ingvi-Frey. What we do know is that Frodi was associated with the Golden Age, thus linking this to Ingus. 

In regard to Rhud Hudibras, the Welsh version of 'Blind Hod', the first part 'Rhud' could mean 'wheel', from the Welsh rhod. There is a Saxon God named Krodo or Hrodo who seems to have been the same as Sataera who gave his name to Saturday - Sataera's Day. This is the equivalent to the Latin Saturn, and also to the Greek Kronos. Interestingly, there is a Slavic equivalent in Rod which means 'generation' or 'birth', but also 'to be born', 'homeland' or 'motherland'. 

Sataera is shown on various depictions from Germany and also here in England, and even in Cardiff, Wales. He is shown with a six-spoked wheel (usually 6-spoked but there is a variant), a pail containing flowers and stands on a fish (perch), the latter perhaps being his 'standing on' the Age of Pisces. He is a Germanic God whose name, Krodo, comes from an ancient Germanic Chrotto, a word which gives us our modern 'grotto' (and thus links to 'Santa Claus'). He was worshipped in Thuringia as the 'Spirit of the Caverns' ('grotto') - in the famous Harz Mountains, famous for 'witchcraft'. Some Saxon depictions have the Sun as an eight-rayed star/wheel, and Saeter with an eight-spoked wheel rather than the six-spoked wheel. These depictions suggest the Golden Sun (White Sun) and the Black Sun. It seems that the name Krodo was the original, later called Saeter or Sataera. The name Hrodo may be the original since the 'H' would have a gutteral sound, later change to a 'K' for convenience. 

The idea of a god worshipped in a 'cavern' suggests the Underworld; various gods, such as Osiris, seem to have been gods of culture, culture-bringers, vegetation-gods, etc. and then to have become God of the Underworld. Sataera is said to have been a god of agriculture, as was Saturn too; these seem to contradict the usual interpretations of this god, and yet may have a deeper, hidden meaning. The name Waendel means 'wend' 'turn', and 'wind' and is clearly the 'World-Turner', here again suggesting a wheel or a Wheel of Time. It also suggests the Chakravartin or 'Wheel-Turner'. In the Grail Mythos seen to be associated with the Long Man a large 'black man' comes from a cave beneath the hill-figure, and is defeated by Peredur. 

The prefix hrud/hrod is very similar to the Germanic hrod/hroth which we find in Hroth-beorht which is coincidentally the basis of 'Fame-Bright' or 'Victory-Bright' which is added to Hood to get 'Robin Hood' - Light and Darkness. It should be noted that the prefix hr may well be sounded at the back of the throat, and in doing so the 'r' is 'rolled' naturally. Thus hrod/hrud/rod/rud/rhod/rhud are all the same variants of one word meaning 'wheel'. The name Rhud is also written Rhuth. There is an Irish ruith meaning 'wheel' and an alternative roth which means the same. 

All of these variants are, of course, derived from the Rad-Rune meaning 'wheel' or 'wheel of a chariot', 'chariot', 'turning' etc. The suggestion is 'turning' or 'rolling', a wheel that has no beginning nor end. The Rad-Rune is also the 'Crucified God' or 'Hanged God' as the glyph shows here, a man hung upon a pillar. This shows a reversed Sigel-Rune on the World Pillar (Is). The reversed Sig-Runes are found on the Wewelsburg Black Sun. 

The Odal-Rune features in Miguel Serrano's ideas on the Armanen Runes; this is not actually in the Armanen Runes since it cannot be fitted into the Hag-All Crystal. In our Ar-Kan Runes this is found as Number 23 or Number 24, the Edel-Rune and Daeg-Rune being interchangeable. There is an interesting idea here, for this rune shows a White-Son - Black Sun in their true colours, white as the Sigel-Rune and Black as the reversed Sigel-Rune. These are the balance of Light and Darkness in harmonious working. Now, in Karl Maria Wiligut's Armanen System, which was derived from Guido von List but contained many different ideas, he uses the symbolism of the hourglass which, when turned over, moves the power from one sun (UR) to the other sun (SUN), from Santur to Sunor. The 'hourglass' is the Daeg-Rune turned around; we have thus the Edel-Rune next to the Daeg-Rune, and both are interchangeable. This does suggest two interchangeable features, in this case the White Sun-Black Sun.

As the Divine Child Mabon is the son of Sovereignty, and his service is to the land, and he has no personal life through this wyrd. He is Mabon, Son of Modron, and he is born again and again upon the Earth in a redemptive role. As the 'Son' he has parallels in Ingus and Krist(os), these two both being the 'Son of Man'. 

The Brunswick Chronicle sees Crodus (Krodo) as an 'old man in the form of a reaper', which is how we see the 'Grim Reaper' whose title contains the idea of 'Grim', a name of Woden connected to a mask. The Grim Reaper is shown bearing a scythe with which he reaps the harvest - this forms part of the 'Wild Hunt' theme. 

It would seem that this Ancient Sun, which has become the 'Black Sun', shone upon the Thuleans or Hyperboreans in the most ancient times, in the lost and fabled Golden Age. This was ruled by Kronos (Greek) or Saturn (Latin) and was known as the Satya Yuga by the Hindus, a word containing 'Sat' as 'Saturn' does. It would appear that, in different cultures, this god was known as Sat- or Kro-/Hro-/Ro- and had connections to the 'Wheel of Time'. Interestingly, Saturday turns into Sunday in the days of the week, from 'Sat' to 'Sun'. There are more mysteries here but we shall leave these until later.

The Hooded Man - 58 Current

'In the Days of the Lion, spawned of the Evil Brood,

The Hooded Man shall come to the forest.

There he will meet with Herne the Hunter 

- Lord of the Trees -

To be his Son and do his bidding.

The Power of Light and the Power of Darkness

Shall be strong within him.

And the guilty shall tremble!'

The Hooded Man Prophecy - October 31st 1993, Horam, Sussex.

There are still things coming to light with this prophecy; there is, in fact, something that has come to light which is extremely important to our struggle for freedom. This prophecy may not be 'ancient' in the strict sense of the word, but it was given to me in an altered form that makes it valid due to the numerology that proves it to be valid. It is made up of 58 Words, and the changed section - The Power of Light and the Power of Darkness is strong within him' - has 58 Letters. The Number 58, when using English Gematria, gives us the word 'Robin' - thus 'Robin Hood' who is 'The Hooded Man'. 

The clue to the meaning of this prophecy lies in the phrase that has been altered; the balance of the powers of light and darkness occur either at dawn or dusk. In this case, with the knowledge of the Sword of Hengest, this refers here to the Dawn Time of the New Age. This is the key to this since this is the time we are in now. The Hooded Man is not the Last Avatar; he will appear later when the 'Day' dawns on this Age of Aquarius. Woden's Folk was set up to prepare the way for his coming, which we are doing through our work at an exoteric and esoteric level. 

We have to consider the role of the English in all this, since in the Robin of Sherwood series the sword carried by The Hooded Man is Albion, which holds within its blade the 'Powers of Light and Darkness in balance'. Albion, as we know, is the old name of England; in ancient times there were Teutonic Folk here akin to the English, and thus the Germanic name for this land in these ancient times. England and the English is the 'vehicle' for this current, the force that embodies the power of the Forefathers, and that recalls the ancient power of the Elves, to whom the English are close kin. 

That this current is embodied around the figure of Robin Hood is no coincidence: he is the most famous English Folk-Hero of them all, and over and over again his legend has been made into TV Series or Films - some good, and some embodying the usual modern distortions that insult our Forefathers. But even then the legend itself shines through because the name itself is the same, and the memory of this Folk-Hero lives on within the Folk-Soul of the English Folk. it echoes through the Blood Memory awakening through the Call of the Blood.

There is no real evidence that anyone by the name of 'Robin Hood' existed, and as with many legends the name could be tagged on to various different English Folk-Heroes. But, it is the name that counts, and that itself is a Teutonic name meaning - 'Light-Darkness'. The name itself embodies the same meaning as both the prophecy and the sword Albion. 

Herne the Hunter is often linked to Cernnunos through the name; the latter is a 'Celtic' rendering whereas Herne is  Teutonic name whicb could mean the same - 'The Horned One' - or may be rooted in Herian which is a name of Woden. Certainly, Herne is related to the Stag, but he is also linked to the 'Hanged Man', and to the Oak-Tree. His name is found not only linked to Windsor, but to 'Herne's Cave' in Kent, and even perhaps 'Herne Bay' in Kent. 'King Herla' is always stated to be a 'Briton' and yet the name is Teutonic and stems from Herian again - Woden Herian. Where we have the 'Cerne Abbas Giant' this may well have been through Celtic Priests who occupied this area - the Saxons called the hill-figure by the name Heil. Again, this could be a corruption of Herian, Herla, Herne. Christian priests in the same area of Dorset told of a Saxon Cult that worshipped a Stag and a Snake. 

Like Robin Hood the Herne Giant is a 'hunter' and the figure shows Orion the Hunter whose legend is very near to that of Robin Hood. That is not to say this is 'Greek' but an English Legend that holds the same basic Archetypal Myth. It is Herne the Hunter who is 'Lord of the Trees' (The Forest-God) and 'Lord of the Animals'. The club that this hill-figure holds is associated with the most ancient Mannerbunde Cults. 

The 'Phallus of Orion' was known to the Egyptians and the Greeks, but also to the Saxons who called this Frigg's Distaff which is a rather clever play-on-words. 

In the third row down on the 'Horns of Gallehus' we see two figures having wolf's heads or dog's heads; the one on the left holds a club (Woden) and the one on the left an axe (Thunor). The fact that Robin Hood dwells in the forest links him to the Teutonic Mannerbunde who also lived in the wild forests as the 'Dogs of the Outside'. This is where the term Heathen comes from, meaning outside the bounds of civilisation, outside the 'enclosures' where the tribe lives - 'of the heath'. That the Legend of Robin Hood stems from a Teutonic source is clear by the name 'Robin Hood' but also by the name 'Will Scarlet' who was originally 'Scathlock'. Yes, this could be claimed a 'Celtic' name since it is such, but it does not refer to any Celtic figure - it is Loki who was the blood-brother to Woden and with the gods in their adventures - even if he was the 'Enemy Within'. The name 'Scathlock' means 'Shadow-Loki' which does get to the essence of this figure. 

That the 'Robin of Sherwood' series tried to demonise Odinism is clear from the way that the enemies of Robin Hood were the 'Sons of Fenris' who were the 'Wolves of Odin' - which is totally wrong. They were the offspring of Loki, not Odin. Also that the 'Seven Swords of Wayland' could summon the 'Devil' or 'Lucifer' - which itself is wrong since 'Lucifer' is the Morning Star - Venus. There is much distortion here but even with this, as I said before, the truth shines through because it reaches the Blood Memory where the Truth shines clearly. One of the tricks used today seems to be to pitch the 'Celts' against the 'Teutons' through a 'divide and conquer' agenda - Wicca-Celtic Paganism against Odinism-Wodenism. This tactic can only work at a physical level, the Call of the Blood cannot distorted. 

The one thing was was right is the link between The Hooded Man and the Tarot Card called The Fool. The Hooded Man is indeed the 'Pure Fool' at one level, but in this case not the 'Parsifal' that achieves the final victory and plunges the Spear into the Graal - this is the Last Avatar. Even this Tarot Card has the White Rose of Albion on its symbolism. There are the Graal figures of Gawain and that of Parsifal - they have separate roles.

But, there may well be a case to see the Last Avatar as The Hooded Man too, since there are three figures here, as there are three figures in the Archetypal Myth of HelgiH -

1. Ailric of Loxley.

2. Robin of Sherwood.

3. Robert (same name) of Sherwood.

This, of course, has been written into this modern Archetypal Myth; in no way do I imply that the writer of the Robin of Sherwood series ever intended this to become reality, this is obviously working at a very deep level of the subconscious. But this does coincide with the HelgiH Mysteries in every detail since there are three distinct currents in both of these myths. These are the workings of Wyrd, where certain things are thrown into the Web of Wyrd and act out reality in this world. These do not work at a conscious level, they work at an unconscious level - and they will be acted out in history. There are certain things that link the two together -

1. Much, the miller's son, and in the Seven Swords of Wayland the action in the mill. In the Lay of Helgi Hundingsbane Helgi hides in a mill in order to escape his enemies. Robin does not actually play 'The Fool' whose role is that of Much in the TV Series - we still have the same symbolism. 

2. Both Robin Hood and HelgiH have to acquire a Sword that they use in their battles. 

3. Robin Hood is the 'Pure Fool' and Helgi Hundingsbane plays the part of 'The Fool' when he dresses as a woman in the mill. 

4. The link between Robin Hood and Wayland; the Sword Albion is forged at Wayland's Smithy. 

5. Finally, Robin Hood refuses the role as the 'Once and Future King'; this is an important point because it underlines the Archetypal Myth that is involved here. The 'Once and Future King' is the Last Avatar whose role is different than that of the current phase. That this is based around 'King Arthur' and the Celtic 'Camelot' matters little, the 'Once and Future King' is also Barbarossa, Aragorn, and other archetypal figures. 'King Arthur' as 'King of the English', maybe, and he too wields a famous Sword. 

Can you see the deception in this depiction of King Arthur's 'Round Table'? The Red Rose dominant over the White Rose? That this was placed at Winchester, the capital of the Belgae and the English, is itself significant. The White Rose is now breaking free of its chains again - and the White Dragon rises once more in the Soul of the English Folk. 

The archetypal theme runs through such figures as The Hooded Man since we find in the last manifestation (Jason Connery) he is reluctant to take up this role. We find exactly the same thing with Aragorn of Lord of the Rings, and now with Redbad in the Rise of the Vikings. These Folk-Heroes do not just step forward and take up their destiny, for destiny forces them to do so. They do not wish to be heroes, they are forced by Wyrd (Fate) to take up this role.

The Long Man of Wilmington is in the East which is where the Sun rises at the Dawn-Time. This figure is the 'April Fool' and thus connected to The Hooded Man - nearby is 'Hunter's Burgh' connected to Herne the Hunter. Above the figure is 'Windover Hill' and the Long Barrow; the name 'Windover' could be a corruption of 'Waendal' since both names can mean 'wind' as in 'to turn', 'to twist' or 'to coil' (not as in wind - weather). It is no coincidence that the other side of the Cuckmere Valley is the Hindover White Horse and another Long Barrow - this became corrupted to 'High and Over Hill'. 

The Sacred Tree of the Helmed Waendal is the Yew-Tree that is found in the nearby churchyard. This is, some say, around 1,600 years old which takes it back to Saxon times in the South Saxon Mark. 

Wilmington Yew-Tree

The early Christian Church knew how powerful our Heathen Ancient Sites were, and thus built their churches on such sites; the local church was built around this ancient Yew-Tree. The name 'Wilmington' has been seen to mean 'Ton of the Wilmings', a Saxon Clan. However, such names are invariably rendered in this like, and nothing is sure about this name. This could be the people of a 'Wilma' but that is not for certain. The hundred next to this was Waendelmestreow - 'Tree of the Helmeted Waendal'. This obviously refers to this Yew-Tree, unless there was another old tree in the area. Of course, there is a possibility that the name 'Wilmington' is associated with the name Waendal; there is a town in the East Midlands called 'Wellingborough' whose name derives from 'Waendal' but the likeness is not seen in the modern name. We have 'Welling' and 'Wilming' which are not too unalike to be seen as corruptions of the same name - Waendal. There is also an area called 'Willingdon' near to Wilmington, which is even nearer to 'Welling', and thus here we may have yet another connection to Waendal. If this is so then the whole area was once connected to the figure of the World-Turner and God of Cyclic Time. The name 'Wilmings' could be the 'Sons of Waendal'. Maybe.

Waendal is 'Orwandil', or 'Earendel', a name that can mean 'Arrow-Waendal'; Orwandil comes into the Myth of Hamlet which is another link to The Hooded Man. There could also be a link to AEgil the Archer who is the Ur-Archetype of Robin Hood. AEgil is the brother of Wayland the Smith; and Rudyard Kipling links an area around Burwash in East Sussex (where he lived) to Wayland. There is a place called 'Pook's Hill' named after 'Puck' who appears in Puck of Pook's Hill by Rudyard Kipling. Puck tells of how the Nature-Spirits have all left, bar himself. 

Kipling tells how an Puck saw an image of Weland (his spelling) on Beacon Hill, originally Brunanburgh. Kipling tells of a place called 'Weland's Ford' which became 'Willingford Bridge' (which still exists today). Here, once more, we have the name 'Willing', as in 'Willingdon' and 'Wellingborough'. The book by Kipling is rather strange in that he paints Weland in a very bad light; when he becomes 'Wayland the Smith', it is said, he cannot be released from his bondage until someone favours him in a good light. AEgil has similarities to Orwandil, and he is the brother of Wayland the Smith. There does seem to be some ancient connection here. This connection could be that of the Elven-Folk and the Waene-Folk who appear to be linked together. Wayland is often described as an Elven-Smith, and Orwandil is linked to Ivalde of the Elven-Kin, the father of Idunn, also of the same Elven-Kin. Many of the Teutonic Wars between kin and kin were fought in line with Archetypal Myth like the wars between the Elves - like against like, usually stirred by Loki. Rydberg sees Wayland as the smith who forged the Sword of Victory used against the Gods; maybe it is time that these conflicts are reconciled once and for all, and that our attention turns to the real enemy of our Folk - Loki the Joten as the 'Enemy Within' and the Dark Joten whom he will lead against the Gods ate Ragnarok. 

Wayland's Smithy

Folkish Wodenism sees the Seven Swords of Wayland as the Seven Tribes of Ingus, forged together as the English Folk-Nation by the Seventh Sword of Wayland - Albion. Since 'Albion' can mean 'Land of the Elves' or the 'White Island'/'Shining Island' then there is a definite link to the Elven-Folk. The ancient bond between Man and the Elves was broken, but this ancient bond can be created once more through the Hand of the Elves and the Blood of Man. A place called Burlough Castle in East Sussex which is not a castle, nor are there any castle remains, but it is said to be the 'Home of the Fairies of Sussex'. By the term 'Fairies' is meant 'Elves' and not the Victorian distortions. Burlough Castle is an ancient mound. 

The Hooded Man Prophecy was given to me in a dream of October 31st 1993 in Horam, East Sussex. October 31st is 'Halloween' - 'All-Hallows Eve' - which is when the Veil of the Worlds is at its thinnest. This is now 26 years ago and Woden's Folk was founded five years after this - continuing the Odinist tradition of using Wayland's Smithy as one of the most powerful Ancient Sacred Sites. The site is guarded by a Saxon Warrior bearing a Spear and a Shield; this ancient warrior revealed the Mystery of ALU some years ago - he still guards the site against the forces that seek to distort its power, and seek to control the site for the forces of Darkness and Matter. This Magical Force - ALU - is the key to the protection of the Smithy. 

Herne the Hunter is the Spirit of the Forest, the most ancient force that pervades the trees and everything living within the forest. In the ancient forests the Teutonic Bunds gathered, groups such as Robin Hood and his Warriors; there they were under the protection of Herne the Hunter - Woden. Woden is 'Wood-An' - Master of the Woods. He is also Wod-An - 'Master of the Wod. This is the 'Teuton Fury' that breaks out of the Teutonic Warrior - like Cu Chulainn in the Ulster Cycle.

Hengest and the Flaming-Sword

'Then was winter gone,
The bosom of the Earth beautiful...
So he did not hinder world-ruler
When him Hunlafing Hildeleoman,
The best of Swords, on bosom did; 
The edges were well known to the Joten.'


As I have shown many times, recorded in the first book that I wrote, the Hun-Sword passes from the Hun to the Engel-Kin; when Hengest ('Ghost of Ing') receives it he does not refuse the 'world-ruler' given to him. But...the term worold-raedan could also mean 'World-Raed' or 'World-Counsel'. This changes the whole thing, although it does not invalidate the first theory at all. Both can - and will - come about in time. This all comes about at the start of a new world-age, when the winter was gone and the spring began, and the Earth started to receive the Light of the (Black) Sun. 

Thus the 'Ghost of Ing' takes up the Flaming Sword in order to work the Will of Woden in the world. Hengest sailed to England in order to aid the Teutonic Folk here (many of whom were the Ingwaeones) and to break them free of the chains of thraldom to the distorted and alien Christian Religion which had taken hold here through the Romans, later to be spread northwards by the Christian Franks who had lost the leadership and guidance of the True Kings of the Franks - the Wolsungas - whose power had been usurped by the Carolingians. It was through the Carolingians that the Saxons were slaughtered and the Frisians later enslaved, though this was not a walkover since there were Heathen Kings who led their Folk in battle against this growing evil - Widukind of the Saxons and Raedbad of the Frisians. To combat the growing Powers of Darkness the Vikings poured out of Scandinavia, and led by other Folk-Heroes such as Ragnar Lodbrok, held back the Darkness for a time as today what is left of the Light-Born Heathen-Folk, shine as a Light in the Darkness. 

In the time of greatest darkness, the 'Gaest of Ingus' appears once more to hold back the Powers of Darkness and Chaos. He wields the Battle-Flame of the White Dragon, which was found by Helgi, Son of Hereward, in Sigar's Holm (*) , the sword with the 'blood-hued wyrm' on its blade, wound with gold, a snake coiling around the sword-guard. One of forty-six such swords - 'the best of swords'. This is the Sword of AEtla the Hun, passed from the Hun to the Engel-Kin. Hengest, riding the White Horse, wields the Word-Sword which spreads The Word of Woden far and wide amongst the Kinfolk. 

(*) 'Victory-Island' or 'Sigar's Island' or even 'Sig-Ar's Island'.

As has been prophesied of old, the Power of the Black Sun is rising again, resurrected from the 'dead' in the Age of Ing - the Age of Aquarius. This is the Dawn-Time of the New Age, that time when the Light and Darkness are in balance, neither one being supreme. Yet this is in the darkest part of the Cycle of the Ages, and thus the Forces of Darkness are at their strongest - but there is a Lightning-Flash in the Darkness, a pinpoint of Light in a world of Darkness. There is a Spiritual Force that appears in the time of greatest darkness, a force that rises like a Comet, and can only be slain by the Spear of Woden himself, when he passes this to Daeg to wield when the Light of Day has come. And then shall come the Last Avatar - the Third Sargon - the Kalki Avatar - Wid-Ar the Avenger - Helgi Haddinga. But this will be in a future time, but still at the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.............

The Last Avatar

Note - In order to understand these last few posts it is necessary for you to study the latest posts on the 'Ar-Kan Rune-Lag' Blog.

Hope - Freedom - Justice

Bring Hope to those who have none,

Freedom for those in chains,

Justice to those who are wronged.

(Word-Hoard of The Hooded Man)

Our English Forefathers put freedom above everything they held sacred; freedom was the one thing they would fight and die for. They valued their freedom to say what they wished to say, to live as free men and women according to the customs and the laws of their Forefathers. They valued their freedom to choose their own beliefs and religious beliefs. They fought against those who sought to impose their will upon them, to dictate what they could say, what they could do, and what they could believe in. They defied kings and priests alike in their struggle to stay free men and women.

The names of those great Folk-Heroes of eld ring through Time and Space to their kinfolk of today. Boudicca the Iceni, Hengest and Horsa, AEtheflaed, Widukind the Saxon, Raedbad the Frisian, Ragnar Lodbrok, Edric the Wild, Robin i' the Hood, Hereward the Wake - these Folk-Heroes rise above the crowd to become god-like heroes of our Folk. Even when Christianity held sway over our people great men arose to continue the fight for freedom from invasion - Admiral Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, Sir Walter Raleigh - these late-comers still retained that love of freedom and the love of a free nation. 

A spate of films and TV Series based upon warrior-hood and heroism have been made during the last couple of decades - Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit were shown at the turn of the millennium and over the 2012 period. The Vikings, The Last Kingdom, The Ice-Man (Otzi), Alpha, and The Last Warrior were more recent; The Vikings and The Last Kingdom have no doubt opened people's eyes to the Heathen Vikings and were not too complementary in their portrayal of the Christians. The latest to appear was in 2018 when the film 'Redbad' appeared, here in England as 'Rise of the Viking'; no doubt the name-change was due to the fact few would have known who Redbad was. 

Rise of the Viking is based upon Redbad the Frisian who fought tooth and nail against the growing oppression of the Christian Franks. The Frankish King, Pepin of Herstal, named after the figure who is thought to have been involved in the murder of the last Merovingian King, Dagobert II, tries to use Christianity in order to impose his will upon the Northlands, starting with Frisia. In the film Pepin is murdered by his son, Karl Martel ('Karl the Hammer'), who then takes up this agenda with even more fire and blood. The Christian King and his Christian Priest, Willibrord, are seen to be ruthless tyrants intent on murder and terror designed to crush the will of the Frisians. 

The pupil of Willibrord, Boniface (from England I believe), is portrayed as less brutal, and the wife of Redbad, who is also a Christian, is seen to believe in the ways of Christ but in a far different way to that of the Christian Church of the time. The visual effects of rows and rows of shields bearing the Christian Cross, and the huge towers of the Christian Franks bearing Christian Crosses, gives the impression of subjugation, suppression and ruthless terror upon others. Compare this with the barbaric look of the Heathen Frisians, their fierce eyes  blazing with the glint of freedom! Redbad, however, like the ancient Zarathustra, believed that the Heathen Frisians should abandon their customs of sacrificing human life which he believed was wrong - and indeed seems to have been introduced from outside of the Ur-Religion. 

Not seen in the film was the fact that the father of Redbad, Aldigisl, was a Christian, but Redbad revived the Heathen Religion and worship of Woden. In the film Aldigisl did not condemn the sacrifices that were their custom, but ensured that those who were chosen by lot (runes) were sacrificed 'out of their own free will'. One of the things that stood out in this film, which I believe was done in the Dutch Tongue (with English subtitles and English spoken by the Danes and Franks), was how many words in this tongue could be understood even in  modern English, many still retained in different dialects of English. This tongue seemed to ring deep into the Blood Memory.

Redbad's Mother is a Priest of Freya and Seeress of Freya, and his wife is Frea, the Anglo-Frisian name for Freya. Noteworthy, both the first love (Fenne) and his wife (Frea) are Shield-Maidens who fight with courage and bravery beside their menfolk in the fight for freedom. Written into this film is Archetypal Myth in the form of Redbad not wishing to be leader (Aragorn), being sacrificed to Woden by being cast adrift in a boat that floats ashore in the land of the Danes, found by Frea who becomes his wife, and then living amongst the Danes - like Ingus he sailed over the waves. 

Redbad and Frea have a son, Poppo, who is saved from death at the end through the courage of Fenne who throws herself into the path of a spear thrown by a Frank. The fight against the Franks is a long and hard struggle, and amongst the Frisians are cowards and traitors who in fear sell themselves out to the Franks. The mass of Frisians refuse to bow to the Christian Priests and at one point the new church built by Pepin in Friesland is set afire and burnt to the ground, which bodes not well, and he orders a stone one to be built and then butchers and massacres more Frisians. 

Karl Martel, in the film, murders his own father, Pepin, and then proceeds - in the role of a ruthless power-hungry tyrant - to murder the heir to the throne who is a mere boy. He is married to the sister of Redbad, and in typical fashion of a tyrant, he brutally abuses her before going on to 'convert' the Frisians. Jurre leads the Frisians into battle, but it is the tactics of Redbad that win the day against Karl Martel - and the Frisians hail Redbad as their leader. But he would still not take up this role as yet. The battle-cry chanted as the Frisians go into the fray is - 'For Woden!' (The name 'Woden' is used throughout the film, not 'Wodan' which is the Dutch spelling.)

Aldigisl, his father, often pushes Redbad to become a true leader, even though he will not accept the role he is destined for - this is Archetypal Myth. His father says to him -

'It is not about you; it is not about me; it is about the Folk.'

With the felling of the Sacred Oak Tree Redbad, Frea and Fenne are taken prisoner by the Franks, and the baby Poppo is taken too. His mother is slain but whispers in his ear -

'They cannot kill our world - You know who you are!'

But despite the treasonous work of Jurre's father who sells out to the Franks, in secret an agreement is made between the Frisians and the Danes, the Danes coming over in their longships to fight with the Frisians, and the time has been set for the battle. 

Here, Willibrord, in his usual vicious fashion as Priest of the Religion of Peace (Christianity), tries to forcibly baptise Redbad, who at first gives way. As he is ducked under the water his father's words can be heard urging him not to give way, not to yield to tyranny, at the end of which he hears - 

This is not about you. 
This is not about me,
'It's about  our Folk and Nation'  
'Now stand up Redbad - Rise!'

He stands, and then comes the famous speech that comes down to us in history. He asks if his forefathers will be in Heaven, to which he gets the reply - 'No'. He asks again and gets the same reply. Then he rolls off the names of his forefathers, his family, all of whom are 'good men' but gets the same reply - 'No!' He then cries out, asking why he should take up such a religion, and then exclaims - 'I would rather be in hell with my friends than in heaven with my enemies!' A sword is thrown to him and the Frisians fight and beat the Franks who flee to Dorestad, taking baby Poppo with them.

The scene is set for the last battle, where Redbad uses the advantage of his Mother's teachings to wait for a Lunar Eclipse that night. The Christians fall about in panic, no doubt due to their superstitious beliefs; Redbad gives a final rousing speech to his men, balls of fire are hurled into the ranks of the Franks, and the Frisians hurl themselves upon the ranks of shields bearing the Cross of Christ. The Danes attack from the other side and the battle ends when Karl Martel is defeated, and allowed (by Redbad for some reason) to get away; he orders his man to throw the spear at Poppo, but Fenne throws herself into the way and dies on the spot. Her courage in sacrificing her own life brings shame upon the cowards and traitors who bowed to tyranny. 

At the end of the film it is stated that Wilibrord and Boniface are made saints and go into the history books, whilst Redbad is cut out of the history books and his memory is erased completely. Indeed, his name was smeared and his life-struggle distorted. He lives on, however, in legend - which never dies

This film captures a heroic age in which free men and free women are willing to fight and die for the freedom of their Folk and Nation. Even in these times there are cowards and traitors who will not fight and bow to terror and tyranny. Redbad is a true Folk-Hero who frees his Folk from thraldom and tyranny; after his death things change and Boniface is murdered by 'brigands' (?) giving Karl Martel the chance to renew his vicious attacks and slaughter and subdue the Frisians. But for a time - a small point in time - Redbad holds back these Forces of Evil against all odds. This is all part of an unfolding wyrd, because after this the Danes build a defensive wall against the onslaught of the Franks, and then the hordes of long-ships leave the Northlands to push back the Frankish invasions. England was no doubt picked because the Christian English aided the Franks at the time - Danes, Swedes and Norwegians poured over the seas, the most famous Folk-Hero being Ragnar Lodbrok. Again, these Forces of Evil were held in check, pushed back, but again the people gave in to the Christian yoke.

For Woden!

For the White Dragon of Ingus!

The White Rose & Four Black Swans

- 'From a Word to a Word - I am led to a Word' -

'The last son of the man with the prophet's name
Will bring Diana to her day of rest;
At a distance they wander in frenatic grief
Delivering a great people from ruin.'

Nostradamus Century 2:28

This is one of Nostradamus' Prophecies that has not been widely accepted as being a prophecy of the death of Lady Diana Spencer. It seems clear that this is the case, though. Her life was actually nothing really sensational, though it was played up to be so, but her death and her funeral certainly were. She died on August 31st 1997 in the 'Year of the Great Comet'. The 'prophet' here is Mohammet since the father of the man she was with in the car she died in was named thus - Mohammed Fayed. There are many conspiracy theories about here death and most point to a 'Ritual Killing', but we shall ignore in favour of some things we can be more sure of. There are too many 'coincidences' about her that are more important -

  • Her name is that of the Goddess Diana who is said to be a 'Moon Goddess', the Roman equivalent to the Greek Artemis. Her name is alike to 'Dana' and so she may be connected to Venus - the Morning Star. 
  • She died in a car crash in Paris, France, at a place that some have connected to the Merovingian Kings - the Wolsungas. 
  • Her funeral was similar, it seems, to that of the death of Rufus here in England, when thousands of the people gathered to mourn. He was also said to have had a 'Ritual Death'. 
  • She was hounded by the gutter-press and at her funeral Earl Spencer attacked the gutter-press by saying that 'she was dealing with a very dark side of the media...'
  • The island on which she is buried is called 'The Oval' which is an island in a small lake on which White Roses are planted, and on which are Four Black Swans. An avenue of 36 Oak Trees leads to the island. White Lilies grown on the lake. 
  • A re-rendering of Elton John's 'Candle in the Wind' calls her 'England's Rose' and also -
'This torch we'll always carry
For our Nation's Golden Child'

  • Charles Spencer saw a vision of the burial area before it was set up. The area is in Althorp, Northamptonshire.  

The above is part of the coat of arms of the Spencer Family - note the Gar-Rune, the Spear of Woden

This is a larger version where the Gar-Rune Shield is topped by a White Dragon, to the left is a Golden-White Dragon-Eagle and to the right another White Dragon. The other symbolism are Three Sea-Shells. There are versions that leave out the White Dragon symbolism. The Dragon-Dragon-Eagle are chained by the neck to the base of the shield bearing the Spear of Woden - 'fettered', that is, to the Will of Woden. The symbolism of the 'Three Sea-Shells' is not clear as yet.

Lady Diana was killed in the car crash under the Pont d'Alma which was linked to the Merovingian Kings - the Wolsungas. The Wolsungas - Wulfingas - Heardingas play an important part in the Lore of Folkish Wodenism. The name Pont d'Alma means 'Bridge of the Soul' and a 'bridge', like that of Bifrost, is a link between two worlds. Let us now look at the Goddess Diana -

  • Her 'Moon Goddess' aspect is alway shown paramount, which hides her link to the Morning Star - Venus. The Merovingians are said to have been 'Heathen Kings of the Cult of Diana', but since she is a Roman goddess this does not fit at all. She would have been of the Cult of Arduina (Ar-Duina) who is Idunn, Dana, Freya or Easter. 
  • 'Diana the Huntress' was her title and she is the Wild Huntress like Frau Wode, Goda and Artemis the Huntress. 
  • Her symbol is the Five-Petalled Rose of Venus - the White Rose of Albion (England). Diana was often depicted with a Stag and a Dove. 
  • On her tombstone is a Flaming Torch; above the site of her death is a Flaming Torch on a Pentagram (The Five-Petalled Rose of Venus-Freya). This was erected in 1989.

There has been so much written of the 'Occult Conspiracy' behind her life and her death; the problem with conspiracies is that there are so many different versions, and where they start to lead somewhere something else takes the path away again. There is so much information - and so much disinformation  -that the truth cannot be seen clearly. This is why it is better just to ignore this and concentrate upon the symbolism of this; since much of this has been placed there after her death we can see the possibility that it was used to further an agenda. The Spencer family has not always been a vehicle for the best of individuals as their history shows (*); and how far back their 'aristocratic' pedigree goes I am not sure (since at least 300 - 400 years ago titles have been bought for cash). We have a light side and a dark side - as with everything. This is why I am not going to bring them down which would not be fair - we do not know the whole facts. It is the symbolism that is important to us here. But symbolism is often used unconsciously as I have shown in my latest posts. 

(*) I recall reading in an old set of books on the English Nation that a 'synchronicity' occurred concerning a 'Diana Spencer' who lived around the Seventeenth Century (if I recall right), which seems to suggest their own 'Archetypal Myth' being played out. I never really went further with this, and perhaps it does not matter in regard to what is said here.

The important symbolism here is -

1. The White Dragon of England.

2. The White Rose of England.

3. The White Rose as symbol of Freya-Idunn - the Goddess of Light and Love.

4. The Flaming Torch upon the Pentagram/Rose.

5. The White Dragon-White Dragon-Eagle and the Gar-Rune on the Spencer Arms. 

6. She was the 'Princess of Wales' which is of the Red Dragon; she married into the Red Dragon. Her husband, Prince Charles, was sworn in as the 'Prince of Wales' under the Red Dragon. 

7. She died in a place sacred to the Wolsungas who were said to be the Divine Race of Woden. This was the 'Bridge of the Soul' which suggests travelling to the Otherworld at this point.

8. The sing originally by Elton John saw her as 'England's Rose' mentions the 'Torch' that will be carried 'for our nation's Golden Child'. 

9. Her burial area is 'guarded' by Four Black Swans, whilst White Roses have been set around the area, and White Lilies in the lake. 

We must trust that somehow this will act in - Delivering a great people from ruin' as Nostradamus states in his Prophecies.
