The White Horse of Woden

I have always assumed that Woden rode a grey horse for it is written in the Eddas that Odin's horse Sleipnir was grey:
"It was grey and had eight legs, and this is the best horse among gods and men." (Gylfaginning, Prose/Younger Edda, translated by Anthony Faulkes) 
I have checked all the references to Sleipnir in both the Elder and Younger Eddas and I can only find this one reference to his colour. It needs to be born in mind though that the composition of this Edda was relatively late. Snorri Stuluson composed this work around the year 1200 CE so we cannot tell how ancient the concept of a grey Sleipnir is. We also do not know whether Snorri obtained this information from an earlier source as Sleipnir's colour is not mentioned in the Poetic/Elder Edda which was composed possibly as early as the 10th century although it is incorrectly attributed to the 12th century Icelandic priest Saemand the Learned. It is thought by scholars that the Elder Edda contains genuinely ancient material and most if not all of it would have been familiar to people in the Viking Age so it is curious that the colour of Odin's horse is not mentioned in these early poems.

What has caused me to question the colour is due to a rereading of parts of Jacob Grimm's Teutonic Mythology Volume 1:

"We are expressly told, this wild hunter Wode rides a white horse." (page 156)      
"In S. Germany they tell of the lord of the castle's grazing gray (or white), Mone anz. 3, 259 ; v. infra, the 'wuetende heer'." 

Grimm refers to various legends from Mecklenburg regarding the Wild Hunt whose leader is known as Wod which my readers will be aware that along with its variant Wode is the oldest name of our High God:

"A peasant was coming home tipsy one night from town, and his road led him through a wood; there he hears the wild hunt, the uproar of the hounds, and the shout of the huntsman up in the air: 'midden in den weg!' cries the voice, but he takes no notice. Suddenly out of the clouds there plunges down, right before him, a tall man on a white horse." (Teutonic Mythology volume 3, page 924)

I will not repeat the entire story here but refer my readers to Grimm but it should be noted that the 'tall man' is referred to as Wod in the rest of the tale. However it should be noted here that Wod rode a white horse, not a gray one and I believe that this was the original colour of the horse whether it was eight legged or not (this may be a later development). Likewise the name of the horse, Sleipnir was probably a later and more northerly development.

Of course whilst this information may in itself be interesting my readers will be wondering why I have posted this here rather than on my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blog. The reason for this will become clear. According to the Purana Hindu scriptures Kalki will ride a white horse and carry a blazing sword. Like Sleipnir it is a horse that is capable of riding through the air.

"Lord Kalki, the Lord of the universe, will mount His swift white horse Devadatta and, sword in hand, travel over the earth exhibiting His eight mystic opulences and eight special qualities of Godhead. Displaying His unequaled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves who have dared dress as kings." (Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.2.19-20)

White horses had a particular mystical significance for the Germanic peoples and were used for purposes of divination:

"Peculiar to that people, in contrast, is to try as well the portents and omens of horses: maintained at public expense in the groves and woods, they are white and untouched by any earthly task; when yoked to the sacred chariot, the priest and the king or leading man of the state escort them and note their neighs and snorts. To no other auspices is greater faith granted, not only among the common folk, but among the nobles and priests, for they see themselves as mere servants of the gods, but the horses as their intimates." (Germania 10:2, Tacitus, translation by J.B. Rives)   
"Although the familiar method of seeking information from the cries and the flight of birds is known to the Germans, they have also a special method of their own-to try to obtain omens and warnings from horses. These horses are kept at the public expense in the sacred woods and groves that I have mentioned; they are pure white and undefiled by any toil in the service of man. The priest and the king, or the chief of the state, yoke them to a sacred chariot and walk beside them, taking note of their neighs and snorts. No kind of omen inspires greater trust, not only among the common people, but even among the nobles and priests, who think that they themselves are but servants of the gods, whereas the horses are privy to the gods' counsels." (Germania 10, Tacitus, translation by H. Mattingley, revised by S.A. Handford) 

As my English readers will know the English countryside in the south of the country has various chalk images cut into the sides of hills and some of these are of horses such as the Uffington Horse which is said to date back to the Bronze Age. The Westbury Horse is another example which certainly goes back to at least Saxon times. The flags of Kent and Niedersachsen in Germany feature a white horse. The chieftain brothers Hengest and Horsa likewise have names that are equine in nature. Thus the White Horse had a clear mystical importance in the culture and psyche of pre-xtian Germanic man. It was also revered by the Celtic peoples. The Goddess Rhiannon who features in the Mabinogi, rides a 'pale' horse and She may be associated with the Gallo-Roman Epona. In Slavic mythology the God Svantovit owned an oracular white horse. In Greek mythology the God Poseidon fathered a winged white horse, Pegasus.

We should not be surprised that the horse, especially the white one was held in such high esteem as the Aryan peoples accorded a solar origin to this noble beast:
"The horse figures with the bull-ox, stag and aquatic birds in proto-Celtic cult contexts and, as examples from Scandinavia show, it had, at this stage, definite solar associations.
"In Indo-European contexts, the horse was of great economic and ritual importance, and its cult role amongst the Celts reflects this widespread attitude. Its importance is demonstrated, for example, by the coins, on which it may be figured alone or in company with the charioteer-often a crane appears above or below it, as in the symbolism of the Urnfield and Hallstatt toreutic tradition." (Pagan Celtic Britain, 1967, Anne Ross)

The book of Revelation refers to a white horse in two chapters:

"And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer." (Chapter 6, verse 2, AV)
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called faithful and true, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war." (Chapter 19, verse 11, AV)  

It is more than clear to me that regardless of that single reference in the Younger Edda the colour of Woden's horse is white and the colour matters because this ties him in with the Kalki avatar and the figure(s) referred to in Revelation 19. However we know from the Eddas that it is not Woden Himself that is coming but His son and avatar Widar. When Widar takes His place at Ragnarok He will mount a horse and I believe that this will be the horse of His father, Woden. It makes sense for all sorts of reasons.

"Brushwood grows and high grass
           widely in Vidar's land;

           and there the son proclaims on his horse's back

           that he's keen to avenge his father.

            (Grimnismal 17, Elder Edda, translation by Carolyne Larrington)

Adolf Hitler-The Chosen One

Thanks to an article on https://arieskindred.wordpress.com/2014/09/09/the-chosen-one/ an interesting work of art named The Chosen One has been brought to my attention. The Swiss-German artist is Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918) and the work was created between 1893 and 1894. The astute observer will notice the distinctive haircut sported by the young child in the picture and its remarkable likeness to that of Adolf Hitler in a photograph taken when Hitler was a young child. At the time of the painting's completion Hitler was 4 years of age, an age similar to the child in the painting.

However it is not just the likeness of the child and his apparent age which are important but the title of the piece: The Chosen One. This is clearly a prophecy regarding the coming German avatar and accords nicely with other works of a similar nature which I have already discussed in http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/adolf-hitler-wotan-avatar-as-prophecied.html and http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2015/09/mimir-as-adolf-hitler-odin-mimir.html

Clearly mystics and artists are able to access images, sometimes through dreams from the Blood Memory that are prophetic in nature and this is just yet one more example of the special status of Adolf Hitler as the precursor to the final avatar. The painting is highly symbolic. The child appears to have planted a tree which may be representative of Yggdrasil, the World Tree. This is symbolic of the new Aryan  order which Hitler tried to create but ultimately failed in the task and instead a New World Order and an unAryan one at that has been created from the ashes of the Reich. The life and work of Adolf Hitler is an integral part of the calamity that has been forced upon the world by the agents of the semitic demiurge and is beginning to find its fulfilment in these very days in which we live.

A further interesting thing to point out is the artist's surname-HODLER and its similarity to HITLER.

Day and Night in Balance

This is the day when daylight and darkness are in balance and I am thus reminded of the Hooded Man Prophecy:

'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 (South Saxon Mark).
The Hooded Man shall hold within himself in balance the power of light and darkness and this balance will be his strength and the means of our redemption from tyranny. He will be the personification of the lightning and the sun.

'Unwanted' Male Romantic Gestures Now a 'Hate Crime' in North Yorkshire

Taking the lead from the very real feminist inspired initiative in the Nottinghamshire Police Force  area http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/36835470/wolf-whistling-can-now-be-reported-as-a-hate-crime North Yorkshire Police, not to be outdone in the PC PC stakes will also be criminalising normal heterosexual men by registering harmless unreciprocated romantic advances and gestures as 'hate crime' and 'misogyny' even though 'misogyny' is NOT a crime in England according to my knowledge. Furthermore making advances to women is NOT 'mysoginy'. Pursuing  the strained logic of the PC Police to its ultimate ridiculous conclusion very few of us living today should have been born! So once again Police Forces instead of taking their lead from laws passed by Parliament are now making it up as they go along in terms of what constitutes a crime. All this lunacy and under a supposed 'Conservative' government! Plenty of time to investigate neurotic nonsensical female grievances and monitoring social media but no resources to investigate house burglaries!

As many of my readers will know 'offences' that are motivated by 'hate' result in a doubling of the sentence if found guilty. I dare say that the powers that be which misgovern this country will not be content until every healthy white heterosexual English able-bodied male is locked up in one of the regime's stinking dungeons for daring to be normal. This should be weighed against the very REAL sexual assaults and rapes which are committed on a regular basis by supposed 'asylum' seekers in continental Europe! ENGLAND AWAKE!

Further Confirmation of the Final Avatar in Nostradamus and Brythonic Mythology

The prophecies of Nostradamus (1503-1566) refer to not just 1 but 3 'antichrists' that will appear on the world scene at separate times of world history. Most of my readers will probably be aware of his predictions regarding the first 2-Napolean and Hitler but may not be aware of the 3rd one which is yet to come. Before I proceed I wish to add at this point that I do not accept the term 'antichrist' for these 2 great European conquerors and leaders. I also wish to make clear that it is only in recent times that these figures have been labelled as 'antichrists'. Nostradamus did not refer to them as 'antichrists'. It has to be borne in mind that Nostradamus is writing from a judeo-christian perspective and consequently there is a certain demonization of the 3 leaders to be found in his writings. He was of jewish ancestry, albeit his father 'converted' to catholicism. This was not such an unusual practice as many jews converted to christianity not so much out of a conversion experience but for pure practical reasons, in order to avoid discrimination in their business dealings. So clearly this element must be taken into consideration when examining the prophecies.

Nostradamus wrote his prophecies in quatrains, in other words stanzas consisting of 4 lines. Usually quatrains have a separate and differing theme than the ones preceding or following them. Nostradamus wrote his prophecies in a very cryptic fashion, possibly to avoid too much attention from the church and the authorities. It is also quite possible that this is the manner in which the prophecies were received by him. Napoleon's name appears as an anagram in Quatrain #8-1: Pax Ney Loron (meaning 'peace not continuing'). This is an anagram of Napolyon Rex (Napoleon King). In addition to the anagram it is clear from the events prophesied in the Quatrains that this character is most definitely Napoleon. Hitler's name appears as 'Hister' in Quatrain #2-24. This is a combination of Hitler and the river Ister, the Latin name for the river Donau or Danube. Again it is abundantly clear from the Quatrains that the events predicted relate to major events in Hitler's life. I am not going to go into these events as this will take us too far off the track.

We come now to the 3rd world leader who has been referred to as the 3rd or final 'antichrist' prior to 'Armageddon'. I prefer to think of these figures as avatars. I have already spoken many times about my views regarding Hitler as an avatar of Wotan so I do not intend to repeat myself in this article. The 3rd significant figure who is considered by those influenced by christianity as the 3rd 'antichrist' is named 'Mabus'. Very little is said about Mabus:

 "Mabus then will soon die, there will come
A horrible undoing of people and animals:
At once vengeance one will see vengeance,
One hundred hands, thirst, famine, when the comet will run." (Quatrain #2-62)

There has been much speculation about who Mabus may be or indeed has been for one theory is that it could have concerned the Flemish painter Jan Gossaert Mabuse whose death was marked by a comet but it could very well have a multiple application, not just referring to one single historical figure. Indeed I believe that the ultimate fulfilment of this prophecy is awaiting a future time. I was motivated in part to write this article on a recent rereading of Wulf Ingessunu's article on his excellent Inglinga blog: http://inglinga.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/age-of-heroes.html

Wulf discusses in his article a figure from Celtic mythology, Mabon. Mabon is quite a mysterious entity. It is clear that he was a God. According to Anne Ross's Pagan Celtic Britain (1967) Mabon, meaning 'divine youth' was the son of Modron, meaning 'mother'. He appears in the mabinogi of Culhwch and is known by the matronymic Mabon ab Modron. There is no mention of a father.  However in other mediaeval Welsh traditions there is a character called Mabon ab Mellt who may or may not be the same figure.

"Mellt seems to come from an earlier form Meldos, 'Lightning', and the mediaeval Welsh may here retain some confused tradition of the divine father of Mabon." (Ross)

If the two Mabons be one and the same then it is clear that He is the result of the union of the divine mother Modron (earth?) and the sky father Mellt (lightning God?).  Interestingly mellt is cognate with Mjolnir, the Hammer of Thor. Likewise the Slavic molniya/molnya. A third personage Maponus is attested to on dedications in northern England-Northumberland, Lancashire and Cumberland.

"On four of these inscriptions the god is equated with Apollo. He is invoked in Gaul and the name occurs on a potter's stamp of the first century, perhaps an instance of a god-name having been taken over as a personal appellation." (Ross)

Likewise He is the divine youth, its very personification. His name remains in the Scottish village Lochmaben, 'loch of Mabon'. That a Brythonic God should be venerated in Scotland is not unusual as British tribes did occupy parts of Scotland, the Scots themselves being invaders from Ireland (just to confuse things!) Indeed there are 2 megaliths close to the village dedicated to this God, both of which formed part of a stone circle which has disappeared apart from these 2 remnants. They date back to about 3000 BCE. This is strong evidence for the existence of an ancient cult dedicated to this God and that He was the divine patron of the Brittonic speaking kingdom of Rheged which incorporated parts of southern Scotland and northwest England. I intend to dedicate an article about this interesting deity on my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blog in the near future.

Returning to the main theme of this article I am speculating that the prophetic figure of Mabus could represent the final avatar who will be unveiled at RAGNAROK-KORANGAR. Mabus could indeed be Wid-Ar, the reborn Woden, the 'divine youth', the Mabon/Maponus of the ancient Britons. It may be significant that a comet heralds the appearance of Mabus. Likewise a comet heralded the rebirth of the Wodenic religion in England  in 1997. This was the Hale Bopp Comet which coincided with certain mystical visions given by Woden to the founder and prophet of Woden's Folk, our Folk Warder, Wulf Ingessunu which caused him to formally found the mystical brotherhood in April 1998. I believe that the prophecy of Mabus in the Quatrains is yet further confirmation of the teachings of Woden's Folk and I am sure that more revelations will follow in Woden's time.

The Wild Hunt (1899)-a Prophecy of the Coming Avatar?

This article should be read in conjunction with http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/adolf-hitler-wotan-avatar-as-prophecied.html and http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/further-comments-regarding-die-wilde.html

When I posted the earlier articles I was unaware that Franz von Stuck created two paintings, both of which are titled Die Wilde Jagd. The painting which appears to show the facial features of Adolf Hitler was the earliest of the two works, being painted in 1889, the year in which Hitler was born and clearly this was prophetic in nature. The second of the two identically titled paintings was created 10 years later in 1899. I find it very intriguing that he should revisit this same theme and wonder what the reason may be.

It should be noted that for clarity in the English speaking world the earlier painting is called The Wild Chase and the later one, The Wild Hunt. In many ways the second painting resembles the first particularly in its wild and ferocious nature but the figure who is leading the 'Hunt' has a markedly different face to the one leading the 'Chase'. Apart from this there is not too much difference between the two works which thus begs the question, why bother revisiting this theme?

If we surmise as I and others have that von Stuck was being influenced by forces at work within the racial Collective Unconscious or Blood Memory and that the first work was clearly a prophecy then we logically should at least consider if the second work was likewise a result of similar forces at work.

Carl Gustav Jung was the first person to recognise that Hitler was an avatar of Wotan (see Wotan, 1936 and his lesser known essays After the Catastrophe, 1945 and The Fight with the Shadow, 1946). This avatar theme was later developed by Savitri Devi and in the later works of Miguel Serrano. Remarkably in his most accessible and mainstream work A Record of Two Friendships, 1966 Serrano publishes a letter dated 14/9/60 which he received from Jung:

"They have a high degree of autonomy, which does not disappear, when the manifest images change. When, for instance, the belief in the god Wotan vanished and nobody thought of him anymore, the phenomenon originally called Wotan remained; nothing changed but its name, as National Socialism has demonstrated on a grand scale. A collective movement consists of millions of individuals, each of whom shows the symptoms of Wotanism and proves thereby that Wotan in reality never died, but has retained his original vitality and autonomy. Our consciousness only imagines that it has lost its Gods; in reality they are still there and it only needs a certain general condition in order to bring them back in full force".

Hitler himself may not have been conscious of this connection with Wotan and if he was no doubt for all sorts of reasons he would have discouraged any such associations, preferring instead to refer to his mission as being at the direction of divine providence and other such nebulous terms. He was certainly familiar with the theories of Ariosophy via his readings of Ostara magazine published by Jörg Lanz von Liebenfels who after the war claimed to have met Hitler in 1909 and gave him some back copies of Ostara magazine for free. It is also possible that their paths may have crossed earlier when von Liebenfels as a Cistercian monk was staying at Lambach monastery for several weeks in 1898. His normal monastery was located at Heiligenkreuz. Between July 1897 and January 1899 Hitler attended Lambach monastery for singing lessons. (See Appendix E of The Occult Roots of Nazism. Secret Aryan Cults and their Influence on Nazi Ideology, Dr Nicholas Goodrich-Clarke, 1985)

According to the historian John Toland Hitler composed the following poem concerning the God Wotan whilst a soldier in the trenches of 1915;

"I often go on bitter nights
           To Wotan's oak in the quiet glade

           With dark powers to weave a union-

           The runic letters the full moon makes with it magic spell

           And all who are full of impudence during the day

           Are made small by the magic formula! my formula blessings and prosperity

           They draw shining steel-but instead of going into combat

           They solidify into stalagmites.

           So the false ones part from the real ones-

           I reach into a nest of words

          And then give to the good and just

          With my formula blessings and prosperity." (page 64, Hitler, John Toland, 1976)

It is widely known that Hitler was an accomplished artist although his work has been derided since 1945 but very few people are aware that he also dabbled in poetry too. Mr Toland does not cite any sources for the poem but it is clear that his biography (one of the most masterful) did consist of original research and unlike many others he does show the human side of Hitler. I have found on the Internet the aforesaid poem in its original German but again I cannot vouch for its authenticity:

„Ich gehe manchmal in rauhen Nächten
Zur Wotanseiche in den stillen Hain,
Mit dunklen Mächten einen Bund zu flechten -
Die Runen zaubert mir der Mondenschein.

Und alle, die am Tage sich erfrechten,
Sie werden vor der Zauberformel klein!
Sie ziehen blank – doch statt den Strauß zu flechten,
Erstarren sie zu Stalagmitgestein.

So scheiden sich die Falschen von den Echten -
Ich greife in das Fibelnest hinein
Und gebe dann den Guten und Gerechten
Mit meiner Formel Segen und Gedeihn.“

I realise that I may have veered slightly off topic here but this diversion has been necessary. If the image in the first Die Wilde Jagd was indeed a prophecy of the coming Wotan avatar, Hitler can we not speculate that the image in the second Die Wilde Jagd may also be a prophecy of the next and final avatar, Wid-Ar, the reborn Woden? Cetainly his features are very clear and we must not dismiss this idea out of hand.
