The Waelcyrge


The Old English poem 'Exodus' refers to Ravens as wealceasega - 'Choosers of the Slain', and various Old English words equate the Waelcyrge with the Greek 'Erinnes' - the 'Furies' - which is something far more primitive than the 'Valkyries' we read of in most Norse Myths, and more akin to those in Njal's Saga -

Twelve riders approach a woman's bower, inside they set up a loom, men's heads being used instead of weights, men's intestines for the weft and warp, a sword as the beater, the shuttles an arrow.

"Blood rains from the cloudy web,

On the broad loom of slaughter, 

The web of men, grey as armour,

Is now being woven;

The Valkyries will cross it with a crimson weft.

The warp is made of human entrails,

Human heads are used as weights,

The heddle-rods are blood-wet spears,

The shafts are iron-bound,

The arrows are the shuttles,

With swords we will weave the Web of Battle.

The Valkyries go weaving with drawn swords,

Hild and Hjorthrimul,Sanngrrel and Svipul,

Spears will shatter, shields will splinter,

Swords will gnaw like wolves through armour.

Let us now wind the Web of War...

Only the Valkyries can choose the slain,

It is horrible now to look around, 

As a blood-red cloud darkens the sky,

The heavens are stained with the blood of men,

As the Valkyries sing their song.

We sang with victory-songs...

Hail to our singing!

Let him who listens

To our Valkyrie Song

Learn it well

And tell it to others."

They tore the woven cloth to pieces, each keeping a shred in their hands. Six rod North, six rode South.

The Greek 'Furies' I believe had much the same treatment, being turned from slaughter-women to a far less fierce outlook. It seems rather obvious that, like the Irish Morrigan, the Waelcyrge were Raven-Women who chose the slain on the battlefield. The Waelcyrge are also more akin to the Norns, since there were usually three of them - the Three Sisters of Wyrd.

Triumph of the Will - Part One



Some spiritual disciplines teach that desire should be quelled altogether, but if we have no desires then we shall have no achievements. We need desire and want in order to have something to aim for - a goal. Without that the human drive to further and better ourselves is lacking - something that certain sections of society today would like to see in us. We must have a purpose and aims which we can put into action if we wish to succeed against overwhelming odds. 

To 'will' is not 'to want', though wanting it is necessary to bring into being the 'Will': this means that the individual has to create a 'desire' and to manifest this it is necessary to align with the Divine Will. The will-power comes into this but it is not the same a 'The Will'; will-power is needed to create the 'Thought-Form', and this must be aligned with the Divine Will. 

Woden - The Master of Woden or the Woda-Force; this is the Divine Madness or Ecstatic Inspiration that is needed in order to bring the Will into force.

Will - The Divine Will - the mighty power of the Will - God-Power. Fiery-Essence of the Will. 

Weoh - Holiness.

These three need to be in harmony with each other; as the Eddas tell us these are the Triple Creative Godhead. The God of the Will is Ingwe - the Fiery-Serpent. He is the God of Force and Fire, of Fire and Light, of the Divine Will but with Knowledge and Wisdom. The Will is driven by necessity - by need - and Ingwe is invoked by kindling the Need-Fire. 

The IE Root *wel- means 'to wish', 'to will', but it also means 'to see', and according to the American Heritage Dictionary of Indo-European Roots is akin to the Old Norse litr - 'appearance'. The Root *wel- also means 'to turn, coil, roll or wind - terms connected with the Spirit. In order to understand this better we need to recognise that the Ingwe Archetype is either the same or very similar to that of Heimdall (Hama) - they are Gods of Fire and the Home & Hearth. Rydberg sees Mundilfore as the father of Heimdall, and he is the God of Friction-Fire as well as his 'Son'. These names appear to be one and the same Patriarch -

Ingwe - Scef - Scyld - Heimdall - Rig - Hama

Rydberg sees Mundilfore as Lodhor whose name appears to mean - 'he who causes or produces the Flame' from lodern - 'to blaze'. He is equated with Willa (Vili) too, which takes us back to the above idea that the IE Root *wel- is akin to Old Norse litr - 'appearance' because it is Lodhur who gives this to Man. This is the litr goda - Light of the Gods or 'Appearance of the Gods' - the Gods made Man in their own image. 

It is likely that Waendal is the same as Mundilfore, and the Long Man of Wilmington is symbolic of Waendal. The name 'Mundilfore' appears to stem from mondil - 'mill-handle' and fore - 'first' or 'foremost'. He turns the Cosmic Mill around, and is also the one who uses the Fire-Whisk. Thus, the origins of the Sacred Fire come through Mundilfore-Waendal; the personification of this Sacred Fire is Ingwe-Hama. Mundilfore is the god who turns the heavens - Precession of the Equinoxes. Connected to the Sacred Need-Fire are the Vedic Bhrigu and Manu, whose counterparts in Germanic Mythology are Berchter and Mannus. 

Bhrigu - *bharg- - 'to shine'.

Berchter - *berht - 'bright', 'clear', 'light'. (Old English beorht).

Heimdall is called Stigandi - 'The Traveller', and we find the word Rati meaning 'The Traveller', from rata - 'to travel' or 'to move around'. Originally, these seem to be Vrata meaning 'to travel', 'to make a journey', originally, it seems, linked to the idea of 'to turn', 'to twist', or 'to coil'. Hence Rati the Borer who uses an augar to bore into Knit Mountain - Ingwe-Hama. He is also Ratatosk - the Divine Messenger of the Gods. 

Thus, the Divine Will is associated with Fire - Friction-Fire. It is Ingwe who will awaken the Will of the Folk, through the Invocation of Fire -

In one of the Hymns to Agni taken from the Vedas we find that he is referred to as 'Fire from the Waters' and also 'Fire from the Stone' - a curious statement. But when we consider the Firestone - White Stone of Ing - this shows Fire as the Ken-Rune, although a different and earlier version than the above.

The markings on the Stone could be seen as the DNA Spiral; the Cross on the Ken-Rune is supposed to be a later addition, but it could also be seen as a Nyd-Rune. You can in fact get 'Fire from the Stone' when using Flint and Steel, another form of Friction-Fire. The Gyfu-Rune is the 'Gift-Rune', a rune of giving, and also receiving; the word 'gift' stems from the IE Root *ghabh- which can also give terms like 'to hold', 'to have' or 'to possess', so this can be given but it can be held by someone too, which sums up the idea of the Inner Fire given by Ingwe, which is the Fire-Within that is held by his Folk. 

The Origins of Fire lie with the god Mundilfore - Willa - one of the Triple-Creator-Gods Woden-Willa-Weoh who created the Cosmos; but these same three gods also created Man, as Woden-Hoenir-Lodhur. This is where some scholars may go wrong (in my opinion, that is) when seeing Lodhur as Loki, God of Destructive Fire and dis-harmony. Lodhur will be Mundilfore, one of the Light-Born Joten who dwells in the Inner World, as does Mimir and the Well of Memory. 

The Long Man of Wilmington (above) is shaped as the Cweorth-Rune - the Rune of Ritual Cremation - this is a spiritual concept in that this is the Fire of Transformation. This is the Fire-Twirl which whisks the worlds into Creation, but it can also be the Fire of Destruction which cleanses and renews the world when it has fallen into the greatest Darkness. What we have to remember is that when any society goes into decline, decay and degeneration, and loses all contact with Natural Law, this society is in a state of decline, and is thus near to a state of destruction - sometimes it needs a push!

It thus seems that the litr goda - 'Light of the Gods' or 'Divine Spark' ('Appearance of the Gods') - is the same as the Will; or perhaps, better put, this is connected to the Divine Will. It is the Divine Will (Willa) that brings this about here in Middle-Earth. This is the Creative-Will or the Will-to-Create, and is Nietzsche's Will-to-Power since he uses this term in regard to the creation of the Ubermensch. These traits, of the god Mundilfore-Waendal, are thus embodied in his 'Son' - Ingwe - who brings these to Man-Kind here in Middle-Earth - as Scef. 

Scef - Beow - Scyld

The Root beow is the root of Beowulf - Wolf of the Bee, i.e. the Bear - but the term has also connections to Barley and to the 'Barley-Wolf'. The Barley-God is 'wounded in the thigh', i.e. the seed-head is cut off from the plant to harvest; the seed drops to the ground and the land appears barren through the winter, until the shoots arise again as a new plant. The Folk-Song - John Barleycorn - is about the Spirit of the Corn, and tells how this ends up as an intoxicating drink; it seems that ergot - a deadly poison but if used in measured minute doses is an hallucinogen - grows on the Barley. 

The idea of a wound in the thigh, a severed head, and a 'wasteland' reminds me of the Graal Mythos - the Wounded King, Severed Head (Tale of Gawain), and the Wasteland (Loegres-England). The 'severed head' is also connected to Mimir and to Bran of the Welsh. This is a subject I am going to look into later since it does appear to be important. Gawain is the Graal-Knight who does not achieve the aim of finding the Graal, which is the role of Parsifal. 'Gawain & The Green Knight' is a Middle-English Tale.

The Daeg-Rune is made up of two Thorn-Runes; maybe the 'Sleep-Thorn' and the 'Thorn of Awakening'. The tale of 'The Sleeping Beauty' is based upon an ancient Aryan Myth about a goddess that is pricked with the Sleep-Thorn, and has to be awakened by the Folk-Hero - this is the tale of Brunhilde-Sigdrifa. It does give a clue to what could be an important concept to us in our struggle for freedom, since our Folk seem to have been 'pricked with the sleep-thorn'. The solution to our problem lies in the problem itself - this is also the 'Thorn of Awakening'.

Germanic Tribes in England - Video

More evidence for a Germanic presence here in England in Roman times; this also give weight to the argument that the Anglo-Saxons who came over later were guided against the growing 'Religion of Evil' - Judaeo-Christianity - that was still active when the Romans began to leave. 

Fire of Ingwe

Ingwe is the God of the English, who gave his name to the Ingefolc; but, of course, he is a God of the Folk, and in my own research is so similar to Heimdall/Hama as to be the same, or at least a similar archetype. We see Ingwe having the following roles and names -

  • Ingwe/Ingus/AEngus.
  • Heimdall/Hama.
  • Scef (Sheaf).
  • Rati the Borer.
  • Rata-Tosk - Messenger between Gods and Men.
  • The Fiery-Serpent/Fire-Serpent/Kundalini.
  • The Aryan Krist - Krist of Atlantis - the Haeland (Saviour).
  • God of Fire.
  • God of the Will.
  • The Shining One.
  • The White God.
  • The equivalent to Agni of the Ancient Vedas.
  • Ingvi-Frea - 'Master of Inga'
  • Good of Force and Fire.
  • God of Force and Energy.
  • God of Light and Fire.
  • God of Friction-Fire (Two-Sticks) or the Pramantha (Swastika).
  • God who establishes the Divine Caste System.
  • He is the 'Son of Man(nus)'.

These are just some of the roles of the god Ingwe; he is also the God of the Sap (plants) and the Blood (animals/Man). 

His symbol is the Ing-Rune - the DNA Spiral and the Twin-Serpents; he is the 'Divine Spark' within Man - the Immortal in the Mortal. His totem animals are the Ram and the Boar, and he is associated with Aries the Ram. The Ram's Horns symbolise activity and creative energy. The Boar is an Aryan Symbol used by all branches of the ancient Aryan Race. 

Ingwe is a Solar-God, the Boar's Hairs represent the Sun's Rays - the Sun (Sunna) is Feminine, the rays that descend to Earth are Masculine. The Avatar, who descends from the Gods, is a man-child, but he comes from the Sun-Goddess and represents Her here on Earth. 

The Cult of Ingwe centres around the Cult of Fire; kindling the Need-Fire invokes the God of Fire - it needs intent though to do this. This is usually Wood-on-Wood either through the Fire-Sticks, Fire-Bow or the spinning of the Pramantha, where the Sacred Fire is kindled at the axle-centre of the wheel. We have done this with a Ferro-Rod and Knife, with the rod held straight and the knife at a 45% angle to the rod - in the shape of the Nad-Rune -


Kindle the Need-Fire by Fire-by-Friction.

Make an offering of Mead and Bread to Ingwe.

Chanting of the Sacred Word - The Ing-Rune would be suited to a Rite to Ingwe. (Chant 'Ing-we' with the emphasis upon the 'ng' sound.) 

**** Here I would recommend using the chant Ing-we rather than Ing-waz since the 'z' sound would take the emphasis from the 'ng' which is the Root-Sound.

Heil & Luck!


After posting the pieces on Telegram about the 'Luck' or 'Heil' which was allotted to the Divine King or Sacral King I decided to take this further, and after more thought the following ideas came up. This is a quite important subject I believe and one that needs to be taken into account in regard to the 'Coming Man' - the 'Last Avatar'. 


In the Iranian Manual of Khshnoom ('Divine or Spiritual Wisdom') we find that the Unknowable God, AHU, allots the task of Creation to ATAR - a name meaning 'Fire'. This we find that of a Creative Fire (Ingwe) and a Destructive Fire (Surt), though both of these are necessary in the Cycle of the Ages. The word 'Atar' is used here for the Aryan Indian 'Agni', but it seems to mean -

*at- over, beyond, super.

*ar- to fit together, noble, The Black Sun - AR.

"It is said that Agni - the Fire that is found in varying degrees at the foundation of all yogas - will saturate the atmospheres of our planet tremendously and all the branches of yoga will be fused into a fiery synthesis. Agni Yoga is a fiery baptism."

Helena Roerich - "Fiery World" - Part II.

"Ur is the root of the Light of Fire". 

Helena Roerich - "Fiery World" - Part I Preface)

UR is Aditi, the Mother of the Gods; we can see this as being (at one level) the Black Sun, the 'Root of the Light of Fire'. The Kalachakra Tantra prophecies that when all is lost, Kalki will emerge from Shambhala (Inner Earth) to vanquish the Dark Forces and usher in a world-wide Golden Age. Helena Roerich mentions a Tara Urusvati - 'The Light of the Morning Star' - which has great significance to us now.

'By coming forward he (Agni) has created kingship in the world. He has conferred on you majesty a victory over your enemies.'

Atharva Veda 13: 1, 4-5. (Athar = Atar).

'Agni Vaishvanara is the Spiritual Fire that leads the conquering king to victory.' 

Julius Evola.


The Heil Salute is the 'Invocation of Heil' - the Spiritual Force of 'Luck'. It also refers to the 'Invocation of Wholeness & Health' - we still to this day raise our right arm in the 'Hello Salute'. The term 'Luck' refers to the Hvarena - the 'Glory of Light' that is allotted to the Sacral King. In order to understand this we have to go to the Myth of Hamlet and to its counterpart in Iranian Mythology.

Kau Khusrau is the Iranian counterpart to Hamlet of Danish Lore; his birth is heralded in a dream where he is first called - The Monarch of the World. In the dream a great New Age is predicted. Kau Khusrau is forced to play the fool or simpleton, just as Hamlet, in order to gain revenge for the slaying of his father. Kau Khusrau has to contend with Afrasihab for the Hvarena of 'Glory of Light', also called the 'Charisma of Fortune'. This Glory 'belongs to the Aryan Nations, born and unborn, and to the Holy Zarathustra'. It is found in Lake Vurukasha and has to be retrieved from the lake.

This narrative of the 'Glory' has a parallel in the Myth of Hama-Heimdall who has to retrieve the Necklace of the Brisings after it is stolen by Loki. This is the point, the 'Glory' belongs to the Aryan Nations, but it can be taken away and the 'Divine Mandate' withdrawn if the Sacral King does not live up to his role; this happened with Yima, the earlier 'World Ruler'. At this point it is difficult to say more on the Fiery Necklace since we know so little of it, but we do know the keeper was Freya, and that she has a counterpart in the goddess Ardvi Sura Anahita of Iran, the keeper of the Hvarena. The tale of Kau Khusrau ends with the World Ruler - King of Kings & Lord of Lords - went to the top of a hill and disappeared before his people. This is an integral part of the Archetypal Myth - the 'World Ruler' either ascends to heaven or just disappears without a trace. This should be kept in mind since it can be proven through events of the Twentieth Century.

These are Kau Khusrau's crowning words - 

'The whole world is my kingdom: all is mine

From Pisces downward to the Bull's Head.'

Kau Khusrau here tells of the section of the zodiac between Pisces and Aldebaran - Aries. His reign is that of Time, preordained by the events of the zodiac. This probably refers to the Age of Aries - the Ram. But we should note that the Ram is a symbol of Hama-Heimdall and thus of Ingwe, whose other symbol is the Boar. We have knowledge of this role as 'World-Ruler' in the figure of Hengest, who was allotted this fate when he received the 'Hun-Bequest' - Hunlafing Hildeleoman. Hengest is the Geist of Ing. (Hengest-Horsa - Hunlafing Hildeleoman - Helgi Hundingsbane - 88.)

The Hvarena - 'Glory' or 'Victory' - is a supernatural fire - Solar Fire - that allows the king to become immortal and confers upon him victory over his enemies. It was later confused with 'fate', and in the Roman Empire became the 'royal fate'. Evola tells us that Horus was named 'Fighting-Horus' - Hoo aha - showing the Solar Essence in him as king. The hieroglyph for 'force' (uas) is the Scepter which, in the older texts was the Lightning-Bolt (zig-zag bolt of lightning). The Uraeus Serpent is the 'Fiery-Serpent' or 'Divine Flame'. This is an aspect of the 'Life-Force'. The Twin-Trident held by Marduk and Woden is most likely the 'Lightning-Bolt; and the Scepter of the Wuffingas probably referred to this concept - a Whetstone. 

Julius Evola broke with Rene Guenon on the highest caste, which he saw as the Warrior Caste rather than the Priest-Caste. This seems to be borne out when we consider the roles of King Arthur (Arctur) - Merlin the Magician, and King Aragorn - Gandalf the Wizard. Gandalf has magical powers that aided and advised the King, and Aragorn had certain powers, such as healing. We can break this into the Ingwe-Woden role where Ingwe is 'Sacral Kingship' and Woden is the 'Priest-Magician'. But, Woden is the way to enforce the Sacral Kingship. It is the Way of Woden that leads to Immortality and the 'resurrection' of the Sacral King. 


KAN - The Serpent : The Dragon (Dra=3 Gon/Kan = Serpent, thus the Coiled Winged Serpent). The 'Khan' - Kingship/The Race of Chan - 'Race of the Serpent' of which Votan came. Fire - the Fiery-Serpent, the Fire-Serpent. 

KEN - To know, knowledge, wisdom and understanding; speech (kenning).

KIN - Kinship, Kin (Kindred) and Kind (Nature). 

KON - Kingship, Kon-ung-r = Kon = King.

KUN - Kundalini and the Female Fire ('cunt'); Fiery Essence of the Feminine. 

The rune-stave is that of the Kien-Span or 'Pine-Torch' which features (at one level) in the Old English Rune-Poem -

Cen byth cwicera gehwam cuth on fyre
blac and beorhtlic; burnett oftest
thaer hi aethlingas inne restath. 

Ken (Torch) is known to each living being by Fire
Radiant and Bright, it oft burns
Where AEthlingas rest in.

The Old English blac (*) means 'radiant'; this is interesting in that our term 'Black Sun', if we were to use 'Blac Sun' would mean 'Radiant Sun'. The 'Black Light of the Black Sun'. The Feoh-Rune means 'fire' in the inanimate sense, whilst the Ing-Rune mean 'fire' in the animate sense. But Feoh also refers to a Spiritual Force of Light and Life, and to the Soul; Sowilo is also connected to the Soul. Feoh also means 'to fight'. 

The reference to AEthlingas would mean the Burial Mound where they 'rest in'; this can mean 'fire' in the sense of the Pine-Torch, or it can by a Spiritual Fire of Kingship which remains with them after death, and which is a Source of Power from the Burial Mound. The Fire of Ingwe has its most power in the Spring (Spr-Ing) of the year, when the sap is rising again from the roots; this is another clue to how the Inga-Force works since the power dwells and arise from the Source

(*) Blac/Blaec means 'bleach' - 'to make white' or 'make radiant'. 

The Twin-Serpents of the DNA Spiral and the Fire-Serpent are shown here with a Pine-Cone with Wings - the Pine Cone is the Pineal Gland. There is much about awakening the 'Third Eye' in Occult Lore, but we have to beware of the Counter-Initiation which seems to use this; I would think that, since they always use a 'blueprint' that already exists, and then distort it for their own twisted ends, they would use some form of physical means to mimic the opening of the Third Eye. The Germanic Kenaz-Rune is a glyph of an 'Eye' -

The Heil Salute is an Invocation of Fire, it is an Invocation of Heil, it is an Invocation of the 'Glory of Light'. This is an Invocation of 'Luck' where this word may stem from the IE Root *leuk meaning 'light' and obviously connected to the Lagu-Rune. This root also gives us 'white' or 'bright' and is the base of the term leukocytes - White Blood Cells. It affirms that the White Blood Cells in our bodies - those that carry the anti-bodies that attack and kill illness and virus', have their counterpart here in Middle-Earth. As a living breathing organism the Earth has her White Blood Cells that seek to protect her from disease and virus-attack. These are the Forces of Light that battle against the Forces of Darkness. This 'Invocation of Luck' invokes this force within a people. As found in the Sajaha Prophecies and the Tale of the White Bird when these White Blood Cells are destroyed, like in the human body, the organism itself is destroyed! 

The Fiery-Serpent (Nachan) aided mankind by offering the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge to 'Adam and Eve'; to stop them eating of the Tree of Life and 'become as gods', i.e. immortal, El Shaddei kicked them out of the Garden of Idunn. It was thus a Messenger of Ingwe that was sent to aid Man. If we look up the 'Holy Spirit' (Holy Ghost) we find that it is connected to Fire; this is sometimes likened to that of the 'Burning Bush' of Moses, but this is more likely the 'Fire-Demon' of the Old Testament. I think that John the Baptist said he came to baptise with water, but one will come after him that will baptise with Fire - this is the Krist-Spirit.

The neck-torc is worn in honour of Woden, the god who 'fetters' his Initiates; the crown is worn in honour of Ingwe as the Sacral King. The early English Kings wore crowns, which is not surprising really. It seems that the Dark Powers did a grand job of wiping out traces of the Cult of Ingwe since nowhere in English Lore do we find anything recorded about the god nor his importance. Even in the Norse Lore Ingvi-Frey is not given that much importance - and yet the Inglingas were Royal Lines of Sweden and Norway at one time. It is perhaps important that the Seven Tribes of the Inglingas came to these islands in different waves, and then spread out across the world - Destiny! Of course, the 'Halo' of the 'Saints' is the Hvarena or 'Heil' ('halo' and 'heil' stem from the same root); the crown is merely a physical symbol of a spiritual concept. In regard to the Torc worn around the neck, this relates to the Throat-Chakra and thus to 'sound', 'speech' and 'gealdor', the role of Woden'. (A good exercise is to chant the runes recognising and emphasising the throat-sound as an experiment.) Speech and Sound are centred in the throat, so to focus on this, and recognise this, makes some sense. 

As I said before, the Power of Ingwe arises anew in the Spring, with the Summer Evennight (Summer Finding); this not only applies to plants but to animals and mankind too. This time of year was a time when couples came together in Fertility Rites - Krist was conceived at the Summer Evennight if he was born at Yuletide as they say. This time of year, which we are coming to soon, is one linked to virility and fertility - the role of Ingwe. G-ung-nr, Miming, Balmung and other Weapons of Power are all based upon 'Ing' or 'Ung' - Gift of Ing, Memory of Ing, and the last is difficult to decipher. 

It should not be missed that we speak of the Fire of Ingwe and yet the sap is liquid - water. But Ingwe is Fire-in-Water, and in this respect the Lago-Rune has to contain the secret of 'Fire-in-Water' since it is also linked to the IE Root *leuk- and to 'Light'. 

The glyph of the Lagu-Rune is that of a 'leek', a play-on-words for leuk meaning 'light' or 'white'; but it is also a wave - of the sea - which itself is a symbol since it could also be a 'sound wave', a 'vibration', or maybe a 'light-wave' or 'light-vibration'. As a symbol of water it is the AEP - the Waters of the Underworld - where Ingwe (Agni) is said to have been hidden. The Old English Rune Poem emphasises the 'waves' and their power. In regard to this rune in the poem the ship is called a brimhengest - 'sea-steed' - where the word 'hengest' means 'steed'. This is in fact a very interesting point because when we consider Hengest to be an Incarnation of Ingwe, then the term 'steed' applied to Ing is in line with the concept of Agni as a 'Force of Fire', the horse being symbolic of Force and Energy. The Eoh-Rune (aiw) is the Vital Force, and the E(o)h-Rune is the Vital Force in its swift-motion as the 'steed'. 

Iggdrasil is the 'Steed of Ing', or so we are told; the letters 'gg' were used for children as a 'horse' or 'steed'. The Greek letters 'gg' are pronounced 'ng', and we cannot rule out a Greek knowledge of the writers of Norse Mythology. The Gothic yggws is the name used for the Ing-Rune, presumably using the Greek rendering of 'gg' as 'ng'. Woden states clearly that he was 'Igg' before he became 'Woden', and there may be a link here to Ing. Just a thought. 

Ghengis Khan slew his half-brother to found the Mongol Empire; he named himself Kha Khan - 'Khan of Khans' - which is the same as 'King of Kings'. His grave is said to be guarded by a White Horse. AEtla the Hun slew his brother to found the Hun-Empire that got to the Gates of Rome and nearly broke the power of Rome. He associated himself with 'Engeddi' and with the prophecy -

'And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the Sun, and the Moon under her feet, and upon her head a Crown of Twelve Stars.

And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered...'

Revelation 12:1-2

Both Genghis Khan and AEtla the Hun were fully aware who they were, and of their Wyrd on Middle-Earth. Both Genghis Khan and AEtla the Hun were 'Men in Time' in the words of Savitri Devi. The Krist comes as the 'King of Kings and Lord of Lords' - probably with the meaning of King (Sovereign Power) and Lord (Priestly Power) combined into one Universal Emperor. Ingwe-Woden. It is likely that Genghis Khan was the king named by Sajaha as the one who is 'Not of our Blood', but who founds a great empire. The difference here is that both Genghis Khan and AEtla the Hun create a form of 'material empire' rather than one based upon a Spiritual Source - which is the role of the Man Against Time who turns the time backwards towards the Source

NOTE - This theme continues in the latest post on Ar-Kan Rune-Lag (ar-kan-rune-lag. blogspot. com) under the title of 'Heil & Sieg!'

Prince of Darkness


As Folkish Wodenists we no doubt get criticism for using 'Christian' terms, but this shows an ignorance of what exactly is 'Christian'. Here I am going to look at the Prince of Darkness - Shaitan. I use the term 'Shaitan' and not the usual 'Satan' because this is the right term to use. Shaitan is a name that originated in Persia (Iran) within Zoroastrianism. This is a very early and ancient Aryan Religion, so it is not Semitic in any way - except through later distortions perhaps. Shaitan is a name of Ahriman - the Evil Spirit of Darkness. 

Ahriman is the animated phantom of the collective Evil of the imperfect lights - souls with a deficiency of Divine Knowledge - the Urvans. Angra Mainyu is another name of this Prince of Darkness. Shaitan is the vilest embodiment of the Evil Spirit Daevaaum Daeva. The name 'Shaitan' comes from Shid-a, meaning 'defect', 'deceit', 'treachery'. This is the densest aggregation of defect or monstrosity of Evil. Shaitan is 'Shaida-an'. 

We need to beware here, since there is a Shaedan (Khshaetan) who is an aspect of AHU - the Highest Divine Power. He is Shaedan-Shaed or Khshaetan-Khshaed. AHU is the impersonal, unknowable, unnamable Absolute One. His name means 'Lustre of Lustres' and he gives rise to the personal deity Ahura Mazda. AHU is the equivalent to the IE Root *asu- meaning 'spirit', 'divine' and 'light'. AHU means 'It is', and we can perhaps liken this to the biblical 'I am that I am'; this term is used because the Great Spirit or Highest God is unknowable, and cannot be named. 

According to the source that I have used, the Manual of Khshnoom, Zarathustra lived around 7,551 BCE, some 9,000 years ago. This also tells of the destruction of Airyana Vaeja around 10,000 years ago. Waves of Aryans swept out of the North after the catastrophe that destroyed their Ur-Homeland. This catastrophe was caused, it is said, by the ice in the North melting and causing the Earth's axis to tilt. 

The Babylonians called Shaitan by the name Shaddai/Shaddain/Schaddain, and he is the Old Testament figure of 'El Shaddain', mentioned twice in Genesis. He is the 'Prince of Darkness' or the 'Prince of Shadows' - the 'Dark Lord'. What figures like Zarathustra seem to have been doing is to reorganise an Ancient Aryan Religion in order to purify it. Another reason seems to be that it is at times necessary to make sure the knowledge of these Dark Forces becomes clear again in order to counter their work here in Middle-Earth. In the Norse, Anglo-Saxon and Celtic myths we find a constant war between the Gods and Giants, but nowhere is this clearly defined as 'Good' against 'Evil' - in fact many people who work with these see no real battle between these forces.

One of the main Anglo-Saxon scholars, J.R.R. Tolkien, appeared again, at a critical time of the Cycle of the Ages, to set things straight when he wrote Lord of the Rings where the 'Dark Lord' appears as Sauron. He also revives the knowledge of the Iluvater - Ilu-Father - the 'All-Father' in the sense of the Highest God, also known as Eru. (We'll not go into that here but Eru may be akin to Iring, Irmin - maybe.) The Germanic Folk had Wr.Alda or Uralten as the Highest God, and there is the 'All-Father' who is equated to Woden but who may originally have been the unknowable God. 

There has to be a 'Creative Spirit of Light' and Racial Gods, and the Norse and Anglo-Saxon pantheon are our Racial Gods. That is why they are 'worshipped' in the sense of us trying to emulate their great deeds, and their low deeds which we have to go though in order to correct our mistakes. When we speak of the names Wr.Alda (Primal Ancient One) and Uralten (same) they are both from 'UR' - Primal. In the Manual of Khshnoom there is an assumption that 'ur' means 'wide'; it does mean 'our' so this seems right. That it is 'wide' suggests that it permeates and penetrates everything. 

It is important that we not only make it clear that this is a battle between Good and Evil (in the sense of the opposite to 'Live' - anti-life) and that we need a clear-cut division between the two opposing forces - no grey areas now! The term 'Daeva' in Persian would be that of the 'Dasyus' of Aryan India, a word meaning 'to divide'. The word 'Aryan' means 'to fit together', that is, the Aryan opposes this divisive force and tries to correct the Rita by creating the Haeldom.

Heaven's Gate


"This was but one though taking roome for three

Religion, wisdom, hospitality.

But since Heaven Gate to enter by is Straight

His fleases burden here he kept to wait

Till the last trump blowe open the wide gate

To give it entrance to the soul its mate." 

This is from 'Button's Plaque' in All Saints Church, Alton Priory, Hampshire; it relates to a 'Heaven's Gate' which is clearly a gateway or portal into another world. The church has two trapdoors in the floor, underneath which are ancient saracen stones. Clearly the church itself was built upon a Heathen Sacred Site - this the 'Gateway to Heaven' is more Heathen than Christian. But of even more interest is the Long Barrow which stands out own the hill above the church - Adam's Grave. The more interesting part is that its original name was Wodnes Beorge - "Woden's Barrow". There is a 1700 year old Yew Tree in the churchyard - we shall look at this later. William Button died in 1591. 

There were two significant battles fought at Woden's Burgh - one between Coel and Caewlin (King of Wessex) in 597CE, the other between One (King of Wessex) and Coelred (King of Mercia). The name 'Coel' suggests that this is the 'Old King Cole' found in children's tales - obviously of an English origin. 

It is said that to walk 7 times around the barrow it will invoke its powers - presumably 'The Devil' since the Judaeo-Christians demonised Woden above all gods. Sometime in the mid 1960s a Miss Cobern was walking back from the barrow to where she had parked her car. Suddenly she felt anxious and uneasy; it was cold and cloudy and looking around her she could see no-one about. She was near to the barrow and began to hear the sound of horses coming at full gallop, so many that it sounded like a vast army. When she had passed completely by the barrow the sounds stopped. 

There are local legends surrounding Woden's Barrow -

  • Others have told of hearing the sound of galloping horses.
  • Animals have been seen taking flight for no apparent reason. 
  • Ghostly 'shades' have been seen around the barrow.
  • Baying hounds are said to be the guardians of the barrow. 

I have myself experienced something at the barrow many years ago, when I took the (ex-)wife and children on a tour around the Sacred Sites of the area, of which there are many. I stood on the top of the barrow and started to chant a Thunor-Blot (this was before I knew it was dedicated to Woden); it was  clear day, and as I was doing it I became surrounded by midges flying around me in untold numbers. Then the skies started to go cloudy and grey, and the wind got up strongly, helping the midges to clear luckily. We went back down to our car because it was starting to rain heavily - not the first time Thunor has done that!

Anyway, to get back to the church; this was build originally in the Saxon period, and it has a doorway in the North Wall. This shows how old it is because most churches are aligned East, whereas this is aligned to the Northern Gods. Nearby is a White Horse between Milk Hill and Walker's Hill (on which Woden's Barrow stands). The White Horse is late, 1815, but sometimes these may have been subconsciously created on such spots. 

"Button's Plaque" is on the tomb-chest of a William Button, and there are several phrases of interest marked on the plaque. These are interesting because they talk of Immortality, and in fact seem to hint at the Astral Body which is much covered by Don Miguel Serrano -

'The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.' (I Corinthians 15)

'It is sown a natural body.'

There is an angel at the top centre blowing a trumpet -

'The Key of David.' (Revelation 3:7).

A roll comes out of the trumpet's mouthpiece -

'It is raised a spiritual body.' (I Corinthians 15:14)

On the palm leaf he bears -

'Death is swallowed up in victory.' (I Corinthians 54)

On the top left a grid-like pattern has three suns and three phases of the Moon -

"This is the gate [ ] the Lord.'

On the top right -

'The righteous shall enter in at it.' (Psalm 118:20)

Button is said to have 'resurrected' with a full head of hair and a vigorous body 'not as like a 64 year old...probably meant to be 33.' 

This piece is rather interesting in that he is said to 'resurrect' in a younger form, thus suggesting in the Astral Body or Body of Light. He may have been 64 when he died, hence this figure, and the Number 33 itself suggests a link to Krist since I believe he was this age when he died on the Cross. We are talking here of the Resurrection of the Spiritual Body. 

Left - 'This is the Gate'.

Right - Shall enter in at it.'

This is as much as I recorded and once had a photo which has long been lost, devoured by a PC no doubt - something that often happens to me. This whole thing has to refer to the 'Last Judgement', which suggests in itself that after all of the catastrophic changes that we are going through during Ragnarok there will come a point when the higher spiritual beings are 'resurrected' in their Astral Form to partake of the New Earth (or the Old Earth returned maybe). Whatever the case, right or wrong here, the point is that the old church here is a 'Gateway to the Gods'. This may be at the point of the ancient Stone Circle or it may be at Woden's Barrow itself. There are two churches in the area - Alton Barnes and Alton Priory, and it is the latter that these can be found. It was many years since I have been there. 

Of course, the 'Heaven Gate' is the 'Gates to Heaven' which open to allow the 'righteous' to pass into; but these inscriptions suggest a deeper and hidden meaning to this, and a knowledge of the stars. The point that stands out is the phrase - 'But since Heaven Gate to enter by is Straight' - since it links to the 'Straight Way' mentioned by Tolkien, that to enter the 'sunken lands' one needs to take the Straight Way. The 'trumpet' is said to be blown by Gabriel, who would be equivalent to Hama/Heimdall who blows the 'Last Horn'. This is also perhaps significant in view of the area's link to Woden's Wild Army since this is in some areas called the 'Gabriel's Hounds'. 

The 'Horse and Hounds' go together to make up the Wild Army, and this is an Ancient Archetype. We find this confirmed in the above account of the Wild Army and the 'Baying Hounds' that guard the mound. This is just one of the reasons why we should not perhaps dismiss everything to do with Judaeo-Christianity and thus 'throw out the baby with the bath-water'. There is much of the Ancient Wisdom hidden in Christian Texts and Christian Lore - perhaps, when one thinks of it, the best place to hide it where it would not be destroyed during an era ruled by these people. Under their very noses - so to speak!

Hope is Kindled.


"The third image that I want to give you today shows how again a new king arises in the distance. And he is of our Blood. His name is 'HOPE' because he closes the sources of evil. And every sign of heaven (Tiw's Kreis) gives him a year, the first half of it in peace and the second in war. However, the sources of evil break out again, and they shower the young king with Blood and Fire, from above and below and from all sides. Thus, he perishes. And the name 'HOPE' falls with him."

The Book of Sajaha - 9:8.

For a prophecy made by the young Seeress and Priestess of Marduk at the Esagila Temple in Babylon around 2,700 years ago this is remarkably accurate. It relates to the 'Ride of the Wild Hunt' that marked the Yuletide of the Great Year Cycle, and the 'Twilight of the Gods' - 1933-1939 (six years of peace) and 1939 - 1945 (six years of war). The 'Young King' perishes under a hail of Blood and Fire in the Gotterdamerung. But......he brings HOPE into a world of growing darkness.

However...."Then the Darkness completely seizes power in the world. The blinded people sacrifice in dull temples of the impure kind. Schaddein (Prince of Shadows) determines the course, his priests of the lie rule scornfully over the Earth. Only the heirs of the heritage of Babylon, Assyria and Persia (Iraq, Syria and Iran). However these became weak long ago. The victory is far off. There is no new king anymore." (Book of Sajaha - 9:9).

This is yet another remarkable prophecy since it names three of the nations which have stood up against the New World Order, and that they 'became weak long ago' (lost the Power of the Blood). Then comes the next stage -

"However, a Strong One will shake up the remnants of the Heirs and wake some up. Like a Comet which suddenly gives a sign. However, the victory is far off, and there is no new king."

Book of Sajaha - 9:10.

Sajaha speaks of a time which suggests the period of Judaeo-Christianity which oppressed and slaughter the Heathen Folk. This prediction tells of them 'offering false sacrifices', also 'cutting girls' hair', and 'burning the wise' - all of which was done in the 'Witch-Hunts'. What we often overlook here is that the torture, murder and 'burning of the wise' is a typical blood-sacrifice to Shaddein - 'Their thoughts are emptied, their spirits are sick, and their souls are deformed. Their gods slurp their blood, burn their flesh and eat the hair of their women. And they kill a great many." (Book of Sajaha - 9:7)

I'm not going into the 'Third Sargon' here since I have covered this before, but will now use the term HelgiH for the 'Avatar of Woden'. Helgi Hjorvarthson, Helgi Hundingsbane, and Helgi Haddinga are Warrior-Archetypes, they are Archetypal Heroes. They are each we to a Valkyrie-Maiden - Svava, Sigrun and Kara. And, we are told in the Eddas, they are each incarnated again into the next one - Helgi Hjorvarthson as Helgi Hundingsbane, Helgi Hundingsbane as Helgi Haddinga. In other words, after death and their entry into Valhalla, a Training-Ground for the Divine Heroes, they incarnate - at Will - as the next HelgiH to continue the struggle here in Middle-Earth. Helgi Hundingbane incarnated at the start of the so-called Age of Iron, when wars and conflicts were kindled on Middle-Earth. The archetype of Helgi Hundingsbane has arisen again in this era to continue the Eternal War against the Forces of Darkness and Chaos. We live today in the Age of Ing - the transition period between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius.

Helgi the Hound-Slayer is slain by Dag which is a word meaning 'Day'; it seems thus clear that this Warrior-Archetype will be 'slain' at the 'Day-Break' of the Age of Aquarius (The Water-Jug), opening the way for the Last Avatar in Helgi the Haddinga, who is HelgiH the Second reborn or resurrected as HelgiH the Third (The Third Sargon). 

The Teutonic Weapon-Myth

The source for much of this post is from Teutonic Mythology by Viktor Rydberg (1891); the content is based upon the figure of Ivalde, known to the English as Wade or Wate and the Sons of Ivalde-Wade. My own slant on this is the connection we have with The Hooded Man and the Long Man of Wilmington in Sussex, England. This concerns three weapons and their links to certain figures -

Grandfather - Ivalde/Wade/Wate - Spear-Elf - Ger-Waendal (*)

Father - Orvandil/Egil - Bow-Elf - Or (Arrow)-Waendal.

Son - Svipdag - Sword-Elf - ? (**).

(*) I have used the spelling to make it easier to understand the connections between these figures, all of the Elven Kin of Wade. 

(**) I have found no name connected to the last of these, though it seems logical to assume there was one originally, and it may be 'lost' somewhere. 

It is usually assumed that the Long Man had Twin-Spears, thus linking him to Ger-Waendal. That the hundred near to the hill-figure is named after the Helmetted Waendal does connect this to the theme here. But, since there is a comet-shaped mound to the east of the figure, known as Hunter's Burgh, we may have a link between either a Spear or a Bow, both weapons of the hunter and Hunter-God. 

In the Myth of Hamlet Orwandil (Arrow-Waendal) is murdered by his brother Fengo; Hamlet is the son of Orwandil-Egil and seeks his revenge upon his uncle. In doing so he plays The Fool or The Simpleton to avert suspicion as to what he is doing. In my own experience on April 1st 1997 the Long Man is The April Fool, and this is the Great Initiator. Earendel is the English equivalent to Orvandil, and we know that they used the name for the Morning Star - Venus (which is a 'Double-Star' both male and female). There are two important links here -

William Tell - his name 'Tell' stems from a root meaning 'fool' or 'simpleton' and it is he who cut through the apple on his son's head with an arrow from a crossbow.

The Hooded Man - Robin Hood's weapon is a Bow and Arrow, and he is connected to the Tarot-Card The Fool numbered 0 (The Void - The Un-manifest). 

Of course, the brother of Orvandil-Egil is the famous Weland the Smith who, according to Rydberg, forged the Sword of Victory in order to wage war against the Gods. It was this sword that Freyr gave away to the Joten, and is the Flaming-Sword wielded by Surt at the End-Time. The word wandal stems from vanda meaning 'to apply care to something in order that it may serve its purpose' (according to Rydberg). The Elves were great weapon-smiths as we know from the myths, and Weland the Smith is the most famous of these. 

In fact, Rydberg gives a very interesting account of the origin-rulers of various Teutonic Tribes, especially the Inglingas.

Ivalde - Swedes.

Wayland & Egil - Langobards.

Slagfin - Burgundians & Saxons.

We have an account in which Ivalde-Wade 'wades' across the waters bearing his son (Weland) upon his shoulders; this is transferred to Weland who 'wades' across the waters bearing his son Witega-Wudga. This, of course, can be seen in the figure of 'St. Christopher', transferred to a Christian 'saint'; of of interest here is that 'St. Christopher' is said to be 'healfhundinga' or 'half-hound'; Wayland is connected to the Wolf-Totem. These 'waters' are near to Elivagar in the North. (***)

(***) We should not forget that these figures were once Race-Heroes, but in time some of them broke with the Gods and waged wars against them. This is reflected in the wars here in Midgard, waged between Teutonic Kin.

According to local legend Hunter's Burgh is where 'The Giant' (The Long Man) rests after being 'slain' by the Firle Giant (an area to the west of the Long Man). This being so it is Earendel-Orvandil who is 'buried' in the Long Barrow. It seems that Earendel-Orvandil-Egil sided with the Gods, unlike his father Ivalde-Wade. From this we can deduce that Or-Wandal is murdered by Fengo (The Firle Giant) and he is buried in Hunter's Burgh. That is if we take the hill-figure as being Or-Wandal, and not his father Ger-Wandal. 

Rydberg quotes Vigfusson as assuming that Or-Wandal is associated with Orion the Hunter, who, as Herne the Hunter, appears as the Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset. The ideas centred around Or-Wandal-Egil do in some ways match those around Orion the Hunter. Egil seems to be linked to the Boar and we find the Constellation of the Pleiades, according to Rydberg, linked to the Old English name of an 'unknown constellation' - Eburthrung or Eburthring. Here is an interesting thing, since this spelling is usually attributed to the 'German' name, which in Old English is eofor from which comes 'Eoforwic', the English name for 'York'. Long ago I pointed out that the old 'Romano-British' name for York - Eburacum - was rooted in the Germanic Ebur- meaning 'Boar'. This seems to suggest this was actually Old English - at the time of the Romans! (****)

(****) This brings up yet another interesting point, since Wade-Wate (Ivalde) is associated with the Watling Street which is one of the Four Royal Roads of Britain, whose origins are all attributed to the Romans. (The other three are the Ermine Street (Irmin), Fosse Way, and Icknield Way). The clue here seems to be in the name 'Icknield Way', which as I have suggested before is 'Icen-Hilde' Way, named after the famous Icen(i)-Warrior-Queen, Boudicca. Now, why on earth would the English name one of their 'Royal Roads' after a Celtic figure, indeed, a figure who does not appear in 'Celtic' legend at all.) The English associated these 'Royal Roads' with the Milky Way - the Road to the Gods. The Saxons called this Irung's Way or Iring's Way and Rydberg associates Iring with Gjuke; Slagfin is brother to Wayland and Egil. (Widukind of Corvei, around 950 CE tells in his Saxon Chronicle Chapter 13 that the Saxons named the Milky Way Iring's Way.) All this may suggest that these 'Royal Roads' were known to the English before the Romans came to these isles. 

Rydberg equates Svipdag with Ingvi, which emphasises that Ingwe was indeed a Sword-God. Nowhere, as far as I can see, does Rydberg equate Agni with Ingwe, but he uses the spelling Ingvae which gives us the Ingvaeones, one of the three offsprings of Mannus. But he does equate Heimdall (Hama) with Agni, and gives some very good examples from the Rig Veda to prove his point. Pliny states that the Cimbri, Teutons and Chauci were Ingvaeones (the Chauci/Cauci can be found in Ireland before the Roman times according to a map of Ptolemy). 

Ingwe is, of course, one of the Waene-Gods, and thus these are linked to the Elves since Ingwe is 'Lord of the Elves'. There is one thing that is rather out of place here, in Rydberg's ideas, and that is that he equates Svipdag with Dag, the former slaying Halfdan-Gram 'with an Asgard-Weapon', the latter slaying Helgi Hundingsbane 'with an Asgard-Weapon'. But Dag is said to have been given a Spear by Woden, which broke the Sword of Helgi. Thus Dag here wields a spear and not a sword. This may be a small point, and unimportant, but worth pointing out. Rydberg equates Halfdan with Mannus, thus making Helgi Hundingsbane the figure of Mannus. I cannot at this time see the reasoning here.

The Herne Abbas Giant (Herne the Hunter) wields a club, and the only reference to his Saxon name is Heil. The Constellation of Orion is shown in two very different ways, either as a club-wielding giant facing away, or as a giant holding a bow facing towards. The Herne Abbas Giant is Orion the Hunter (as shown by the offset 'nipples' and the 'Phallus of Orion'); the Long Man of Wilmington is Cygnus the Swan, so we have the 'Rising Sun' (East) and 'Setting Sun' (West) or the Green Man (East) and the Wild Huntsman (West). 

I am now going to come at this from a different angle, to try to unravel these English Mysteries. In Hamlet's Mill (Gorgio de Santillana & Hertha von Dechend) we find the Myth of Hamlet where Amlodhi (Hamlet) is connected to the World Mill and to the Precession of the Equinoxes. The authors speak of Amlodhi as Lord of the Golden Age, the Once and Future King, which connects to our own Wodenic Lore in so many ways. What I am interested here is that Rydberg links the World Mill to Mundelfore, and he sees Mundelfore as the father of Heimdall. His work goes through the Origins of Fire through the Need-Fire (Fire-by-Friction), and we find both Heimdall and Agni as Fire-Gods. Mundelfore is the father of Heimdall, as Mataricvan is the father of Agni; Agni comes to the Bhriguians to give them fire, and we find that Scef-Ingwe brings fire to the Folk of Scandi (Ingefolk). 

This being so, then the figure of Waendal appears to be that of Mundelfore, the 'Turner of the World-Mill', whose role is also that of turning the Fire-Whisk, to whisk the worlds into Creation. The Fire-Twirl or Fire-Whisk is shown below in the Cweorth-Rune -

The shape, of course, is that of both the Long Man and the Herne Giant; if, as someone commented on this blog, Cweorth is equated to Sweorth (Old English 'sword') then here again we have a direct link to the 'Sword'. We have figures shaped like this from Sweden, showing a man holding Twin Spears, and with a Sword hanging from the waist - Both Spear and Sword. These are usually connected to Woden. Hamlet, being the son of Orwandil, would thus be Svipdag, as seen by Rydberg. The Myth of Hamlet can be found in the Legend of Kau Khusrau (Persia-Iran) and The Myth of Horus. In the latter we see Osiris (Orion) is slain by Set (The Dark Lord), and Set is thence slain by Horus (The Son). This is the basis of the Ur-Myth of the Aryans - Father is slain by Uncle, Son avenges the Father by slaying the Uncle. In the Egyptian version we find that Isis (Sirius) brings life back to Osiris in order that they may bear Horus the Avenger whose fate is to slay his uncle. 

Hamlet, as shown, is The Fool and thus equated with the Long Man as the April Fool, so the figure of the Long Man has to be linked to Bootes (as well as Cygnus), itself linked to Ingwe (and to the 'Once and Future King'). As I have said before, the area around the Long-Man seems to be a 'Time-Clock' that was to awaken certain Higher Powers at a specific time, indeed seemingly around the region of 1997-1999. This 'resurrected' the 'Once and Future King' at just the right time, since this event, as the authors of Hamlet's Mill state, happens at the end of a world-age, and foresees a Great Catastrophe that brings this world-age to an end. In Hamlet's Mill we are told that the Evil Force cannot be destroyed, but must destroy itself. (This, of course, could be done through this Evil Force bringing into being something that is fated to destroy it - namely the Great Catastrophe that would herald the appearance of the Last Avatar.)

When I received The Hooded Man Prophecy in the dream of 1993 there were two symbols connected to this - the Sunwheel and the Crossbow. The former of these may equate to the Turning of the World Mill and the latter to William Tell (The Fool). The dream centred around a resistance movement which arose against the Dark Forces, waging war against the Evil Ones. Since this focussed around a 'made-up' prophecy for the Robin of Sherwood series the synchronicity around the use of Robin Hood as the 'son of' Herne the Hunter, and the link between Robin Hood and the Tarot-Card named The Fool (who is The Hooded Man) is quite interesting. The authors of Hamlet's Mill point out the similarities between the Myth of Orion and that of Robin Hood. 

The date of April 1st is in itself important; we have seen how October 31st and November 11th are connected, and that the addition of 11 days in the Gregorian Calendar means they are the same festival. If we add 11 days to March 21st (Spring Evennight) then we get a date around April 1st! This is indeed of interest since the Spring Evennight is one of those points of the year when the Light and Darkness are in balance - the main feature of The Hooded Man Prophecy. Bootes rises around April 1st; here we have a direct connection between Ingwe and the April Fool. 

The symbolism of The Fool has been said to represent Orion with the Dog-Star (Sirius) at his heels. We should actually note here that the dog in the card is a hunting-dog (greyhound-whippet-lurcher-saluki etc.) and I have shown before how Bootes is represented by a figure with two hunting-dogs. Since we have Canis Major and Canis Minor at the foot of Orion, these two constellations seem to be linked in some way. In the card is a butterfly, which in itself is symbolic of some kind of transformation (caterpillar to butterfly) - in the butterfly we find a transformation from Earth (caterpillar) to Heaven (butterfly). The dog shown here seems to be trying to stop him from walking over the cliff - to stave off a disaster. The bag-on-a-stick suggests that The Fool is a 'traveller', one making a journey, and he holds a White Rose (White Rose of Albion). In occult circles Sirius was of extreme importance, but it is not at all clear why; Gurdjieff stated in one of his books that he had 'buried the dog even deeper' which suggests he hid the secrets but made them less accessible to most people. 

The authors of Hamlet's Mill say that Hamlet's father was murdered by the use of the juice of the Yew-Tree and mentions Uller's Yew-Tree (Wuldor's Yew-Tree) which was 'belonging to Sirius'. Isis appears to be associated with both Venus and Sirius, a point to remember here. It is said here that the name Earendel has been said to stem from the Old English ae, ear meaning 'wave', or 'sea', or from or/ear meaning 'arrow'. Sirius is the 'Dog-Star' but it has also been called the 'Arrow-Star', so we had yet another connection here. It has also been suggested that the term Earendel Jubar means 'Earendel - Ray/Beam', where in MHG and Italian this refers to an arrow

mulKAK.SI.DI - 'Arrow-Star' (Sumer.

Tishtriya - 'Arrow' (Persia)

In India the bowman is Sirius, named Tishiya, and his arrow is represented by the stars of Orion's Belt. It is thus suggested, by the authors, that 'Earendel, brightest of angels thou' might be the brightest of stars - Sirius. Both the Ear-Rune and the Cweorth-Rune are similar, and sometimes interchangeable, so the hill-figures could be in some way linked to Sirius, as well as the other links I have made. The Babylonians had this to say - 'Arrow-Star, who measures the depth of the sea'. 

In the Tarot Card named The Star, which Aleister Crowley relates to Sirius, we find a woman holding a Water-Jug, and pouring out the contents into a pool of water and onto the land; there are Seven Stars in the card, likely to be the Pleiades.
