The Divine Twins appear around Dawn-Time; the first partakes of the darkness, thus riding a Black Horse, whilst the second partakes of the balance of light and darkness, but with the light triumphant, thus riding a White Horse.
The Divine Twins are both 'twins' and 'father & son'; just as Hengest & Horsa were brothers and Cerdic & Cynric were father and son - the archetypes always underlie historical events.
In the first figure (Franz von Schuck 1889) the Wild Huntsman rides a black horse and sports a moustache. In the second figure (Franz von Schuck 1899) the Wild Huntsman rides a white horse and sports a full beard. The figure wears the scarlet-red of the war-god.
The herald of the New Dawn is the Dawn-Star or Morning-Star - Venus, symbol of the Waene/Vanir-Gods, related to the Goddess Freya -
'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 brought forth a man-child which was to rule the nations with a rod of iron....'
Revelation 12:1 & 5.
- At the top is the 'Birth-Rune' (Peorth) from which is arising the Spirit 88 made up of twin Wyn-Rune (also making the Man-Rune or Rune of Manu). The four 'notches' represent the manifestation of Spirit (3) into Matter (4).
- In the centre is the Ur-glyphic Irminsul, the World-Tree, the Cosmic Centre from which the Last Avatar arises (see Wulf's Prophecy). This is the 'Womb of Generation', the 'Womb of the Mother'.
- At the bottom, as I have pointed out before is the Ing-Rune in which the Spirit 88 dwells; this can be England (Ing-Land) but it can also be the planet Venus - the Morning Star.
'When the Ice of the Darkest of Night melts away under the Fire of the Black Sun of the Inner Earth, the poisoned apple shall fall away, and the Sleeping-Goddess shall awaken, throw off her White Wolf Skin and arise renewed by the Golden Apples of the Immortals. When the Moon is under her feet and she is clothed in the Golden Sun, she shall bring forth the Divine Child of Light who will lead the English Folk in their divine mission against the Servants of Darkness.'
'The Prophecy 88'.
We can definitely associate Freya with Venus, but since the 'Crown of Twelve Stars' (The Corona) may represent the Twelve Golden Apples of Idunn, and like Venus, Idunn is the Goddess of Regeneration, it is Idunn that is used here. Idunn, Freya and even Nanna are linked together in a subtle way.
The 'Sleeping Beauty' is none other than Snow White who represents the 'Soul of the Germanic Race'; this is the 'White Lady' of Germanic Legend, the Arkona as stated by Guido von List. List tells us that she 'haunts' the places of origin. The best interpretation of the story of 'Snow White' can be found in Wulf Sorenson's work on the 'Ancestors'. This is well known and I will not repeat it here. 'Snow White' has black hair, snow-white skin, and red lips - Black/White/Red, the colours of the Norns and of Germania (as well as Atlantis).
The 'White Wolf Skin' represents the snow of the Northlands, and is 'thrown off', i.e. when the ice melts due to the 'Fire of the Black Sun' (Surt's Fire?). The 'poisoned apple' represents the alienation of the Germanic Folk-Soul through the imposition of the alien Judaeo-Christian Religion. The Germanic Folk-Soul is not dead but lies in a stupor (much like the English Folk today).
Venus is a double-star, symbolic of both Freya and Ingwe-Frey; it is the Morning Star and Evening Star. It is said that Ing follows his 'waen' (Sun-Waen) across the waves, just as Venus follows the Sun from East to West, and West to East in the 'Underworld'. Ing is also associated with Bootes; the symbolism of Bootes is that of the 'Son of Man'.
'The island of Britain situated almost on the utmost border of the Earth...and poised in the divine balance which supports the whole world.'
Gildas the Monk.
'Poised in the divine balance that supports the whole world'. The balance of Light and Darkness within Albion, the Seventh Sword of Wayland. The balance of Light and Darkness wielded by The Hooded Man. These islands must represent the Land of the Dead in the Far West, as shown by Miguel Serrano in The Golden Thread (The Golden Band). This is the Land of Amenti (*) of the Egyptians, associated with Amon - The Hidden God. Thus England is also the Land of the Evening Star - which is the Morning Star. With the 'Dying Sun' and the 'Dying Race of the Sun' has to come the appearance of the Last Avatar, here in the Lands of the West.
(*) 'Amenti' means 'western', the place where the Sun sets. The East is the 'Land of the Rising Sun, whilst the West is the 'Land of the Setting Sun'.
Wid-Ar the Avenger will appear from the 'White Lands' (Landvidi could mean 'Wide Land' or 'White Land'). Wid-Ar is 'Widu-Kind' who is the Woodland Spirit and it is interesting to note that Hamasson pointed out to me that the horse of Widukind is shown as a black horse but prior to Christianity it was a white horse. There are numerous 'White Horses' scattered across England, and the White Horse is a Saxon Symbol. That the Last Avatar appears riding a White Horse indicates that he appears from within the Saxon Nation. (The riding of the White Horse is, of course, symbolic.)
Since England is 'poised in the divine balance which supports the whole earth' it has to be a very important place not only for us, but also for the Dark Powers who seek to control the world. This importance shows clearly in the symbolism used in the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The occult nature of this I have dealt with before and the way that 2012 is displayed shows the word ZION, which gives the game away, though most cannot see this, of course. The use of a mound representing Glastonbury Tor is also significant, since the area of Glastonbury has long been used by the Dark Occult Forces. As the 'Glass Mountain' it represents the Sacred Centre, upon which they placed a tree; of course, this is Mount Me-Ru and Yggdrasil, the centre that is everywhere but whose circumference is nowhere (Serrano).
Together with Blake's 'Jerusalem' which tells us that Jerusalem (ZION) was once built here in ancient times, this whole Occult Ceremony was designed to do something of extreme importance to the Dark Powers, or to stop something from happening.
There is a small chapel on top of Glastonbury Tor, dedicated (I believe) to 'St. Michael -
'And there was war in heaven (Ragnarok); Michael and his Angels (Angles) fought against the dragon (Red Dragon)....'
'St. Michael' wields a sword, or sometimes a spear, and he is usually seen riding a white horse. The result of this Cosmic War was the defeat (in this dimension) of the Red Dragon who was 'cast out onto the Earth'. We can interpret this as the Dark Forces moving in force into our world, our dimension of time and space. Coming through 'Dark Portals' from the Other-World. The Final Battle will take place here on Middle-Earth, just as the Last Battle (Eddas) takes place on the Unshaped Isle.
In our own Wodenic Lore we have mythologised our history by the use of the term - 'Seven Swords of Wayland'. These represent the Seven Tribes of Ingwe (Ingwaeones = 'Friends of Ing') who came together here in these islands, creating the Nation of Ing (England). These can be found in the Prose Edda where the tribes are led back into Europe by Woden, and the Sons of Woden become kings of the various Germanic Tribes. This is what has happened here in England which is Angle, Saxon, Frisian, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Frankish. These various Germanic-Nordic Tribes fused together to form the English Nation. These seem to be Ingwaeonic Tribes or the 'Sons of Ing' - Ynglingas.
This is very important since the Ynglingas claim descent from Frey and Freya, and are thus linked to the Waene/Vanir - and to the planet Venus. I have hinted before how there seems to be a link between Venus and Sirius (in the south), and with Bootes (in the north). The link in Egyptian Lore is the Goddess Isis, mother of Horus the Avenger! Isis is the Goddess Isa or Nehellenia of the Frisians, a Goddess seen with a dog (Sirius is the 'Dog-Star). Osiris, the father of Horus, is slain and dismembered by his brother Set ('The Dark One'); this represents in our Wodenic Lore the defeat of the 'Father(land)' and the destruction of Germania. The Goddess Isis (Soul of the Germanic Folk) gathers the parts together and mates with Osiris to produce Horus the Avenger (the 'Son' in the 'Land of the Son' - Ingland). This is the Myth of Hamlet and the Resurrection of the Fool.
Woden takes half of the slain to Valhalla; Freya takes half to Folkvang - the 'Field of Folk'. Freya and Frigg should both be seen as facets of one, one the 'Maiden' the other the 'Mother'. When the Wolsunga Royal Line (sired by Woden) is threatened because Rerir has no son and heir it is Frigg who sends here handmaid with an 'apple', which causes Rerir to have a son called 'Volsung'. The 'apple' is symbolic of the Five-Pointed Star, which in some traditions represents Venus; the Egyptian glyph for Venus is a five-rayed star and a 'banner' (Wyn-Rune of the Waene). Note the Wyn-Rune as symbol of Venus, also shown in the wooden rune-stave earlier.
Miguel Serrano uses the term Veneris Rune which is an eight-rayed star, and this he links to Venus. This does not conflict with what I am saying, but it is not the subject of this post. The Symbol of Venus is also a 'rose', the 'Dog-Rose' in fact which is the true and original rose. This is a White Rose (though shades of pink occur in the wild); the White Rose is the Symbol of Albion as the 'White Island'. The rose is a very significant symbol since it is unique in that the Dog-Rose needs no other to pollinate and reproduce itself - it produces its 'offspring' (rose-hips) through what we could call a 'Virgin Birth'. The Dog-Rose has five petals just as the apple when cut in half produces a five-rayed star. Again, we are back to the Goddess of Regeneration - Idunn.
(We can see now how the 'Red Rose' is used more often, such as the England Rugby Team and many other examples of its use for England and the English. The defeat of the 'White Rose' by the 'Red Rose' mirrors the defeat of the White Dragon by the Red Dragon [Battle of Bosworth Fields 1485].)
The 'Island of Apples' is named Avalon in Celtic Lore, and is where the 'Once and Future King' (the Hyperborean Arctur) lies awaiting his time. He is taken there by the Goddess of Wyrd - Morgana. She is the Goddess of Death and Regeneration. Avalon has been associated with Glastonbury, but this may be another example of 'Celtic Fantasy'. (Archaeologists found no connection between 'King Arthur' and Glastonbury as the Christian Monks assert; what they did find was early Saxon glass-workings, hence the name 'Glass-Ton-Bury'.) Avalon is like Valhalla, where the chosen await their resurrection to fight again in the Eternal Struggle. The connection between Glastonbury and Woden can be assumed through the legend of Gwyn ap Nydd (White, Son of the Mist), the Celtic Wild Huntsman.
I have shown before how Newgrange in Northern Ireland is connected to what seems to be a 'rebirth'/'resurrection' of the hero who is 'resurrected' in Venus; this planet is also connected to Bryn Celli Ddu in Anglesey (Angle's Island). The latter has the Germanic Ing-Rune carved into a stone - the 'lozenge'. The 'lozange' is also a common symbol at Newgrange. Since we are told by two Roman writers that ancient England was shaped as an 'elongated diamond' (Ing-Rune) we can assume a direct connection to the planet Venus, as well as to Bootes that revolves around the Pole Star, following his 'waen' (Plough/Great Bear) eastwards over the night sky. Note below how Bootes is seen as an 'elongated diamond', but also like the Edel-Rune too.
Associated with New Grange in Northern Ireland is the figure of AEngus/Oengus/Angus who we can relate to Ingwe. He takes the dead warrior Dairmuid to the Bru na Boinn (Newgrange) into the mound with the pregnant Grainne (pregnant with Diarmund's child). There he proclaims - 'I will send the bright light of the soul from the sky into him so that he may talk with me each day.' This is the Light of Venus, and Grainne gives birth to a child, a son, who is sent to be fostered and to 'learn to become the warrior his father had been'. Venus is thus seen to be the source of the 'Resurrection of the Hero'. Venus is the 'Star of Resurrection'. The Light of Venus transfers the souls of the departed Aryan Heroes into the bodies of the newborn. If we equate Venus with Freya, then we can suggest that this is Folkvang where Freya takes her quota of the Fallen Heroes.
The Calc-Rune is the Rune of Kalki; it is the 'Death-Rune' and a rune showing a nuclear warhead. There can be no regeneration, no rebirth, no re-creation without this final destruction. Like the cosmic battles in the Ramayana and the Mahabharata this is part of the Archetypal Myth, part of the Eternal Return, part of the cosmic cycles that occur over and over again. The Calc-Rune represents the colour 'white', of 'chalk', of the 'white stone'. Not only is the Calc-Rune the 'Death-Rune' but it is the roots of the Tree of Life, it is the origins, the ur-spring, which we return to into order to find ourselves, to be able to renew, to 'resurrect'. It is also the Graal-Cup, the chalice, the Horn of Plenty, the source of life, the 'Womb of Life'. It is the figure of Aquarius pouring the Waters of Life upon the Earth.
