An Invocation of Ostara

We invoke thee, Ostara,
Grant us thy presence
In this our sacred circle
That we have prepared for you.
It is in your honour
That we take this time of remembrance
For the coming season
Of warmth, joy and life.
Ostara the Fruitful,
We welcome you,
Comfort us with your timeless spirit.
Thou appearest in beauty
In the dawn of each day.
O living Ostara,
The beginning of life,
When thou risest in the eastern horizon
Thou fillest Midgard
With the giving light of life.
Thou art gracious and radiant,
Glistening high over every land.
Thy rays encompass Midgard
To the bounds of all
That the Gods have made.

These words are not mine but taken from Ron McVan's classic The Temple of Wotan. Holy Book of the Aryan Tribes (page 299, 2000). I have been using this as an invocation for the Summer Finding rite for a couple of years now. I like Ron's wonderful use of Early Modern English for this invocation: it sets the right respectful tone which we lose in modern English. Fellow folkish Wodenist Runebinder has penned a nice little article about Ostara here http://volkisch-runes.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/i-had-dream-last-night-that-owl-flew.html

An Informative Response to my Article Woden and Vata Vayu-a Comparison

This is a comment which I have received from Cyrus the Strong today in reply to my article http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/woden-and-vata-vayu-comparison.html
The comment is very informative and enlightening and I feel it deserves wider exposure hence I have posted this as an article. Cyrus the Strong is the owner of the remarkable blog http://realrunemagick.blogspot.co.uk/

Cyrus the Strong said...
Very interesting info here. I myself drew the connection between Wotan and Vayu-Vata while looking for an ancient pan-Aryan origin for the names of the Aesir. It is not just Wotan but also Tyr, Zisa, Thor, and the Vanir Freyr and Freyja as well, whose names appear in the ancient Iranian sources, as well as in the Indo-Aryan tradition (Tir, Tissa, Tondar, Fravar, Feriy, etc.) A number of important Persian nobles and generals had names like Tirdad (justice of Tir) or Tissafarnah (under Tissa's protection) even well after State Zoroastrianism took control.

Something just never seemed right to me about the academic 'orthodoxy' that Wotan was a 'latecomer' to Germanic religion from Turanid or Mongolian sources - that hypothesis just made no sense! Wotan is clearly a God of a Farmer-archetype (Aryan) culture, with nothing at all in common with Tengri or any of the chaotic sky gods of Herder-archetype (Turanid) cultures.

Another point of interest here is the story recorded in the Bundahishn and Yashts, that mentions Tyr/Teiwaz (Tivash-Tareyhe in Avestan, Tashtir or Tir in Old Persian) destroying Apaosha, a demon of drought, with aid from a sacrifice from Vatu-Vata (later substituted for Ahura Mazda). This suggests Vayu-Vata being the stronger of the two, and hence indicates that the predominance of Odin over Tyr among the Norse was not an aberration, but a return to ancient pan-Aryan tradition from the supposed early Germanic emphasis on Tyr being "foremost" in some locales bordering the Roman Eepire.

Based on what I've read, it seems more like Ahura Mazda was one of the aspects of Vayu-Vata, rather than a subordinate deity. Ahura Mazda is simply a title that means "wisdom-God". This fits Wotan perfectly. Furthermore, the Yashts mention Vayu essentially being the "guardian spirit" of Ahura-Mazda to whom he sacrifices to gain power to smite the Angra-Mainyu but benefit the creation of Spenta Mainyu, of which Vayu-Vata is a member. Wotan sacrificed himself to himself to gain the runes, "for the weal of mankind and woe of the Jotuns". So here essentially it looks like Ahura-Mazda is basically a kenning for the lower aspect of Vayu-Vata, i.e. Wotan in the form of the gray wanderer in Midgard, while Vayu is the higher aspect, i.e. King of Asgard. Thus we have Vayu-Vata/Ahura Mazda as both giver and receiver of wisdom, sacrificing to himself to thus access deeper mysteries, as encapsulated by the spiraling Gibor-rune, symbolically as both divine giver and receiver.

Angra-Mainyu are clearly the ettins of chaos, perhaps there may be a link to the name Angrbodha here. In modern Persian, '-bod' means 'commander' or military leader (as in Arteshbod = general), and while I don't know the precise definition of Angrbodha in old Norse, it makes sense that this giantess was one of the prime leaders of corruption and chaos, being mother of Fenrir.

Another interesting point is that Tir or Tivash-Tareyhe was originally associated by Iranian cultures with the star Sirius (Tiryaush), commonly known as the dog star or the Wolf Star in many cultures. A curious parallel with Tyr being associated with aggressive canids... being "the leavings of the wolf" and fighting the hound Garm in Ragnarok. Indeed it may be this association, through eastern Aryan cultures like Ordos and the Yuezhi, that led to the adoption of Sirius as "Tenrou-sei" or Sky-Wolf Star by Asian cultures, NOT the other way around. Tenrou or Tian-Lou being likely a corruption of Tiryaush. The Turanid "Tengri" is likely a further corruption of this, given its sky-connection and the Turanid obsession with everything wolf-related.

Wotan-Widar mit uns, Wotan-Widar in uns, Wotan-Widar ist uns.

I have many times discussed the nature of the God Widar on these blogs and pointed out that He is known for 2 chacteristics which are part of the character and mission of this God: He is a God of Vengeance and He is the 'Silent As'. I have demonstrated that silence is a necessary ritualistic aspect of Gods who are connected in some way with vengeance.

I and others have pointed out that He is a God of the Coming Age and indeed He is a God of this Age as we are in a transition between the ages of Pisces and Aquarius. This is in fact a liminal stage. We are heading towards the end and the climax of the Kali Yuga. Folkish Wodenism is not alone in recognising that a world leader, a divine world leader is coming. The Hindus refer to Him as the Kalki Avatar, the moslems as the Imam Mahdi, the christians as the Second Coming of Christ, the Tibetans as the Gessar Khan, the Altai as the White Burkan, the Buddhists as Lord Maitreya, the Zoroastrians as the Saoshyant and the Babylonians as the Third Sargon. He is also referred to in the Eddas and Armanism as Der Starke von Oben.

Before I was introduced to folkish Wodenism via an out of the blue flyer in the early 2000s (a coincidence full of meaning) I was concerned with esoteric christianity and eschatology (the study of the end times) and I looked for and preached the Second Coming of Christ. Now, many years after my spiritual and folkish awakening, which came to its full fruition via the teachings of Woden's Folk, instead of preaching the Second Coming I write about the coming Starker von Oben. In reality this cosmic figure can be called by any and all of these names which demonstrates to me that there are such things as objective not just subjective spiritual truths because this world figure is not confined to just one religion or people: He is a global figure.

It behoves us to study the sacred writings of these other religions and peoples for they contain a certain grain of truth regarding this mysterious end time figure. This is no coincidence for these writings contain dire warnings for the peoples of the Earth. Often founders of religions are prophets and forerunners of an even greater personage. Founders of religions are often persecuted. They are certainly hardly ever acknowledged during their earthly lifetimes and are generally mocked by the unbelieving. Of course Hitler, especially since the collapse of the Third Reich has been reviled and mocked to a degree which in my opinion is unprecedented. Of course one could argue that he was the founder of a religion: National Socialism but he was not just the founder of a religion but the very incarnation of a God. That God is Wotan.

Often these founders of religions are prophets and forerunners of the God or God force which they proclaim. Sometimes the forerunner is a separate personage as John the Baptist was to Jesus Christ:

"And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias." (John 1:19-23, King James version)

We must not confuse the forerunner with the One that he prophesizes is to come. However the forerunner can be filled in part with the divine force of the avatar. We are minded of Hitler and how he appeared to be possessed by the avataric force of Wotan. He was not himself Wotan, but Wotan appeared to seize him and spoke and acted through him.

"Perhaps we may sum up this general phenomenon as 'Ergriffenheit' - a state of being seized or possessed. The term postulates not only an 'Ergriffener' (one who is seized) but also an Ergreifer (one who seizes). Wotan is an 'Ergreifer' of men, and, unless one wishes to deify Hitler - which indeed has actually happened - Wotan is really the only explanation." (Wotan, 1936, Jung)
"Everything gravitated around a man with exceptional abilities for captivating, transporting, arousing and fanaticising the people, while he himself presented under more than one aspect the traits of a possessed person, as if an extraordinary force were acting through him, giving him lucidity and iron logic in action, but depriving him of every sense of limit."[My emphasis]. (Notes on the Third Reich, Julius Evola, 1964)

Wotan's apparent 'possession' of Hitler may be explained by the Aryan concept of the avatar. Hitler was not an ordinary man. He was born of a woman in order to fulfill a specific mission in the same sense that according to christians Jesus Christ did. By all appearances he was human, being born of woman but nevertheless his followers believe he was a God-Man incarnated in human flesh to fulfill a specific task. In this sense there is little qualative difference between Adolf Hitler and Jesus Christ with the exception that we know Hitler to be a real historic personage. There is no such proof for the existence of Jesus Christ.  

Recently there has been a concerted attempt by dark forces to undermine the founder of folkish Wodenism by ridiculing him and misrepresenting his teachings. This is to be expected for these same agents of dark forces fear the light. They delight in exposing others but they themselves will hide behind a false identity whilst they libel innocent people purely because they violently disagree with their teachings. This is to be expected. Far from eroding the knowledge that our teachings are based upon light and truth these desparate persecutors actually convince us that we are right!

We look for the avatar: we await Widar made flesh but His spirit is already here. It dwells in the bodies of the Woden initiates. Woden through His son Widar is with us; He is in us and He is us! This is a deep and sacred truth if only we could accept it and act accordingly.

Wid-Ar Arising

One thing in particular that I find remarkably hypocritical about the illiberal elite is their defence of the alien religion and culture of islam which they have had a hand in transplanting from the deserts of the east into our sacred European lands, no doubt in order to create instability and the destruction of western society and the white race. This instability they first brought about in the homelands of islam through phoney wars against terror after the extremist islamist armed groups that they helped to set up and fund began to turn against the hand that fed them. No doubt this reaction too was foreseen and planned by these very same illiberal elities.

The white traitors who govern our European and western lands through their destructive wars against islamic countries and their butchering of many innocent men, women and children have created a chaotic situation where many people are fleeing for their lives but no doubt accompanied by an even larger number of spongers and opportunists who are breaking into our continent solely for the purpose of free money, clothing, food and accommodation. This is crystal clear except for the most blinkered liberal observer. These very same spongers (and genuine refugees) will be granted free housing by local authorities whilst many of our own native English people are either homeless or have to live for months on end in hostels or boarding houses despite this being THEIR country! These young fit men if they are genuinely from a war torn country should have the balls to take up arms and defend their homelands like real men not flee like sissies and cowards to Europe. However we know that their real motive is financial gain and what they perceive as a life of ease at our expense. Most people know this but once again the illiberal elites are in denial.

The biggest traitor of them all is Angela Merkel who literally opened the borders of Germany for countless flotsam and jetsam to invade Germania and molest and rape German women, all initially covered up by the Police and authorities http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3388490/Angela-Merkel-invited-baying-asylum-seeker-sex-mob-taunted-Cologne-police-robbing-raping-women.html
I found this particularly irksome as many of my readers will be aware that I am half German. However this situation is not confined to Germany: Scandinavia is suffering the same fate as well:http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/01/its-not-only-germany-that-covers-up-mass-sex-attacks-by-migrant-men-swedens-record-is-shameful/

A backlash is coming. The Wid-Ar avataric force is arising in Europa and will become unstoppable. The very presence, indeed the very ubiquitous presence of the Wolfsangel rune as a symbol of not only English but Germanic and pan-European resistance is an indication of the arising of this force and should come as a warning signal (and symbol) to the corrupt elite that govern and exploit the European peoples that their time is over. The Old World Order is finished: the time of the Aryan God-Man has come! The irony is that the worse the situation gets with our lands being flooded by eastern invaders the stronger the Wid-Ar God force becomes! Therefore as Woden-born initiates we must not fear the times in which we live but come to the dawning realisation that we were born into a place and a time that we have chosen as Einheriar in the halls of Walhalla prior to our physical rebirths. It is our task to REMEMBER!

Further Comments regarding Die Wilde Jagd and Odin Mimir Befragend

I happened to stumble across this article http://www.historyanswers.co.uk/people-politics/did-this-painting-foresee-the-rise-of-adolf-hitler/which may or may not have been influenced by my earlier article from 2013 http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/adolf-hitler-wotan-avatar-as-prophecied.html

I find it incredulous that the author should assert that Adolf Hitler would have modelled his appearance after a 19th century painting! Hiler's hairstyle was hardly unique to him and was typical of the times as was his moustache. What cannot be replicated however are his facal features which entirely match the face of Wotan in Franz von Stuck's Wilde Jagd. Hitler's fondness for the painting may or may not in part be linked to the facial resemblance and its year of creation, 1889 which significantly was also the year of Hitler's birth. Hitler I am sure on a sub conscious level associated himself with Wotan and this is made clear from both the writings of Carl Gustav Jung and Miguel Serrano.

What is equally incredible is the painting by Emil Doepler in 1905 of Odin Mimir Befragend: http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/mimir-as-adolf-hitler-odin-mimir.html 

It is interesting that the face in the later painting is most clearly that of a mature Adolf Hitler and we must take note that in 1905 Hitler was an unknown 16 year old. Mimir is of course a far more ancient deity than Wotan and indeed in the Eddas Odin relies on Mimir for the revelation of esoteric knowledge.
