The Feoh-Rune

In the Inglinga Blog I have worked on the idea of the Eternal War between the Forces of Light and the Forces of Darkness. This came about through concepts contained in the Rig Vedas. It is clear from this that the symbols of the 'Cows' and the 'Gold' are symbols of the Solar-Light of the God-Head, the Divine Light of Swar, the region above the heavens, the highest point of consciousness, the Realm of the Gods - Asgard. 

The earliest meaning we have for the Feoh-Rune is 'cattle', from the Old English Rune-Poem; the later texts replace this with 'gold'. The texts use these in reference to the physical objects and thus contain mundane meanings. Yes - this is one level of meaning but it is not the only one. To find the inner and hidden meaning we need to refer to the children's tale - Jack & the Beanstalk.

Jack is sent out by his mother with a cow which he has to swap for the necessary food to live; on the way to market he comes across a man who persuades Jack to part with the cow in exchange for some Magic Beans. He takes the Magic Beans back and his mother sternly scolds him for his action, so Jack throws the Magic Beans into the garden.

When Jack awakes the next day he finds a vast bean-stalk rising into the skies, so he climbs up to the top. There he enters the realm of an Ogre (Giant) and he finds a Golden Hen that lays Golden Eggs guarded by the Ogre, which he steals and takes back down to his mother. The next day he climbs again and finds a hoard of Golden Coins, which he steals again and takes to his mother. On the third climb he enters the house of the Ogre and finds a Golden Harp which starts to play; the Ogre returns so the wife of the Ogre hides Jack in the oven. The Ogre exclaims -

Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum, I smell the Blood of an Englishman,

Be he alive or be he dead, I'll grind his bones to make my bread.

The Ogre's wife waits until the Ogre falls asleep and lets Jack go; Jack steals the Golden Harp and climbs down the beanstalk, but the harp starts to play, awakes the Ogre who follows on the heels of Jack as he descends. Jack jumps to the floor, cuts the beanstalk, and the Ogre falls to his death. It becomes clear that the Golden Treasures were originally the property of Jack's father, so in reality he merely took then back.

We have all the elements of the Mystery of the Feoh-Rune here - the 'cow' (Golden Sun), the beanstalk (spiral ascent), the Golden Treasure (The Light of the Arya), the stealing and regaining of the Golden Treasure. We even have the runic formula for this rune - Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum. (It is perhaps expected that the formula is here set to fit into the rhyme and metre of the poem, but the formula in effect would be -

Fa - Fe - Fae - Fi - Fo - Foe - Fum


This is the Sevenfold Sound of Fehu, shortened to Fa-Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum; note that the Latin Alphabetical order is used, whether this is original we cannot tell. The Ogre mentions that he will 'grind' Jack's bones, suggesting that he is the Turner of the Mill. I have discussed this in my book Ar-Kan Rune-Lag : The Secret Aryan Way in which I recognised the 'gold' as symbolic of the Solar Knowledge and Solar Wisdom, as well as the Solar Light. 

We have to recognise that the Solar-Light is stolen by the Great Enemy, by the Forces of Darkness; I have mentioned before how this could relate to an ancient times (perhaps in Egypt) where the Aryan Wisdom was stolen when one of the Aryan Kings was slain (the Legend of Hiram Abif may be related to this). It seems clear that the Aryan Wisdom remains hidden in the lore of the counter-initiation, hidden but distorted to suit their evil aims. It has always been strange that many Western Tradition Occultists have used the Kabalah, but maybe there is some hidden worth in this lore after all, hidden but distorted (as must be recognised, of course, before using such texts). 

The above shows clearly that the runes were not merely mundane symbols for everyday objects; seeing them as such has kept the true meanings hidden. What we need to remember is that words used in ancient texts have to work at an intuitive level and not an intellectual level; they have to work through the right-brain in the way of A = B = C = D etc. rather than 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 when the left-brain is used. Thus, every word used has to be seen in a way in which it evokes many meanings at the same time, even meanings that would seem to contradict. 'Cattle' is the same as 'Gold', even though they seem quite separate and different, for they both symbolise the Solar Light in different ways. Gold is more obvious, but the cow is both motherly and nurturing, and the Sun's rays nurture and feed us with Light. Audhumla is the Cosmic Cow and Cosmic Mother. 

Those scholars who have rejected anything but materialistic meanings to the runes have 'blocked out the Light', have pushed the true meanings into the darkness, where it is the role of the Aryan Mystic to retrieve them and bring them back into the Light of Day. Those who wrote down these symbols would likely have been aware of what they were writing, but had to hide them from the Judaeo-Christian oppressors who sought to destroy the Ancient Wisdom of the Arya. It may be that they were not aware of the hidden meanings, who knows? 

The 'darkness', the 'cave' and the 'lake' are symbolic of the subconscious; it is here that the Aryan Treasure lies hidden. It is here that the 'demons' and the 'darkness' hide that treasure. It is necessary to dive deep into that darkness, to dive into the 'lake', to enter the 'cave of darkness', to slay the Dragon of Darkness that guards the Gold-Hoard, and to retrieve the Gold-Hoard, steal back the cattle, and to bring this back into the Light of Day - the conscious mind. The unconscious has to be made conscious. This is the Mystery of the Blood - the Blood-Memory.

Like the Giantess, Gunnlod, the female Joten (Giants or Ogres) aid and help the Aryan Hero who has to find the treasure. This is clear in the tale of Jack & the Beanstalk. In the Myth of Knit Mountain we find Woden retrieving the Mead of Inspiration which was also stolen by the Joten and retrieved by the Gods. The essence of these tales is that some form of self-sacrifice is needed to regain the treasure, whether it be the Mead of Inspiration or the Golden Hoard, or the Cattle. The essence is struggle, going against all odds, sacrificing all for the sake of the Divine Quest. This is also true of the Graal-Quest, for the Graal is often seen as a 'Divine Light', a brilliant, shining light at the end of the struggle. To whom does the Light belong - the Light is the right of the Arya. The Divine Light is Feoh which can be seen from the OE fah which means 'radiant' or 'bright' and is the Fire of Ingwe. (*) There is another Old English word feorh which means 'life', 'soul' or 'spirit' and which is the Flame of Life. Light and Fire are the realms of Ingwe. (See the book for more details of this rune.)

(*) Woden's Folk uses the formula FAH as a means to remember the key elements for fire-making -

F = Fuel.

A - Air.

H = Heat.

Sieg Heil!




The above, taken from the Volkische-Runes Blogspot, are four variations of the Ken-Rune, but it is the second from the left that we are interested here. This rune-shape is an upright stave with an upward-pointing 'arm'. We cannot but notice the shape is that of the so-called 'Nazi Salute' or 'Fascist Salute'. Of course, this post (once again I am afraid) opens me up to the claims of being a 'Neo-Nazi' but that is a hazard we have to overcome if the truth is to become known, and the truth will one day sweep aside all of the lies and the misunderstandings that come from the Great Liar and his Dark Servants.

The salute is made up of two distinct runes, the Sieg-Rune and the Hael-Rune (Haegl-Rune). Added to this the rune-stance is that of the Ken-Rune in its Anglo-Saxon form. We need to analyse these runes to see what the stance actually does -

  • Sieg means 'victory', so Sieg-Heil means 'Victory-Heil'.
  • Heil or Hael is a force, the mysterious force invoked by the use of this salute. It is a force of healing and health, a force of harmony and stability, a force for good since surely healing and harmony is good for us - though certain powers may not see it this way, since they promote division and disharmony. 
  • Sieg is also the Sun, the Brilliant Light, the Golden Light of the Sun, the Sun of the Arya. This is also invoked, the Power of Light and Life.
  • Sieg is the Lightning-Bolt of Thunor, of Indra, of Thor, the Lightning-Bolt that smashes through the Darkness. It is the power that breaks down barriers, that breaks through any obstacles. It is the Thunderbolt, the Bolt of the Thunder-God, the Power of Light breaking the Darkness.
  • Sieg is a Rune of the Serpent (S), the serpentine-power, the Fire-Serpent, the Power of Ingwe-Agni.
  • The Ken-Rune is the Fire-Serpent, the Inga-Fire, the Power of Ingwe-Agni; this is the upward path of Light and Fire as shown in the stave itself, the upward movement within Man, rising to the heavens, to the Divine Light, to the Divine Truth.
  • As the Force of Ingwe this salute invokes the Power of the Divine Will, the Will-to-Power, the Will-to-Victory over the Forces of Darkness and Matter.


The third rune is that used on the White Stone of Ing, and this can either be with the stave above the upturned 'V' or the stave below a 'V' (as a 'Y' shape'). In this case I feel that the former is how it is used here. 

The Ken-Rune stance suggests the invocation of the Fire of the Sun and the rune means the Sun, the Serpent but also the Soul (Sowilo). The 'Light of the Gods' (Litr Godh) is the Divine Spark, Agni-Ingwe, who is the Hidden God, the god within the Arya, the Fire of the Arya, the Fire of the Hidden Sun, the Sun concealed in the Darkness of Matter. Sieg is the victory of Light over the Darkness, 'Sieg Heil!' is the invocation of that victory, the drive towards harmony and then perfection. The drive towards Immortality and the Realm of the Gods.

The Sieg-Rune is associated with the Will; this is linked to the Lightning-Flash or Lightning-Bolt, it is that which will break through, achieve victory in the end through the Power of Will. The word 'will' is itself entirely positive, there is no hint of negativity within the sense of the word. When we say 'I will' it is a positive and powerful statement, unlike 'I might' or 'I might be able to'. 'I will' is powerful and has to be said with vigour and power - in itself it invokes power and force. Will is in fact the Power of Truth. 

The rune has a serpentine-movement related to Agni and thus to Ingwe; it is a spiral motion, a spiritual motion, the Power of the Vortex. Ken is the Inga-Fire, the Aryan Fire, the Sacred Flame of the Gods, the Flame of Knowledge, the Fire that Forges, the Fire that Transforms. It was said that great Initiates of Fire would arise to guide the evolution of Man, the Fire of Ingwe which is the Beacon-Fire shining in an Age of Darkness.

Alchemy and Runic Symbolism



This post was sparked off by a link sent to me by C.M.Reed which promotes two books about the symbolism of the REBIS and its shape which features universally and, of course, is the shape of the Long Man, the Herne Giant, Viracocha, the Atacama Giant and the Ear-Cweorth Runes. The link is to www.RichardCassaro.com which has a number of images of the symbolism. We have already shown some images of the rune-shape but this post will bring into play another meaning of these runes, one linked to the 'Graal Runes' theme that we have worked on many times. What we need to do is to go through the REBIS and the symbolism.

The image is male-female as shown by the two heads.

The Sun is male, next to the male head.

The Moon is female, next to the female head.

The Man is dressed in RED (The Red King) and the Woman is dressed in WHITE (The White Queen). 

The man holds the compass which makes a circle and thus symbolises the Spirit.

The woman holds a square which (as the word suggests) makes a square and thus symbolises Matter.

Aphrodite (Venus) and Hermes (Mercury) have a child named Hermaphrodite who is born male but becomes male-female thus uniting the two as one. The above shows the union of Venus (Female) and Mercury (Male). This is the Alchemical Wedding. 

An alternative symbolism is that of the Red King (Spirit) and the White Queen (Matter). This is symbolic of Man who is Spirit born into Matter.

At the bottom is a Winged Globe in which is a Triangle (Spirit) imposed upon a Square (Matter). Above this is a Fire-Serpent (Fire-Dragon) which represents a transmutation by fire. The Number 4 is found on the Square, and the Number 3 on the Triangle - again 4 = Matter, 3 = Spirit. 

At the top is a Golden Star which represents the transmutation of Lead into Gold, and thus the coming Golden Age. This is a six-pointed star symbolic of the union of male-female, within which is the Sign of Mercury.


Looking at another site I found a very interesting explanation for the word REBIS which is said to be from the Latin res bina meaning 'dual-matter' or 'double-matter'. The site gives a better explanation of this as RE (Ra - Egyptian God) - B - IS (Isis - Egyptian Goddess). No explanation is given as to the 'B' as far as I could see. This is obviously the Male-Female union as found in the rest of the symbolism. 

Analysing the images on the website the figures in this position are holding in each hand -

Two Stags - Anatolia/Assyria

Two Dragons/Serpents - Afghanistan/Norse

Two Serpents - Andes/Crete

Two Lions - Egypt/Mesapotamia

Two Leaves/Corn - Greece

Two Birds - Greece

Two Horses - Hittite

Two Tigers - India (?)/ Persia 

Two Wolves/Dogs - Minoan/Persia

Two Rams - Persia

Two Animals/Horned Animals - Sumeria



Although not quite the same this image of Woden and Two Wolves contains the same theme without the same pose. It is Anglo-Saxon.

Now, simple logic tells us that these images are very different from the alchemical images of much later times, and are not a continuation of the original images. There is no hint in the later medieval images of either a male-female (they are either male or female) or of a union of male-female (the animals are the same on both sides). The only thing that links all of these images is that they show the stance of the Ear-Rune/Cweorth-Rune. Also these two runes are associated with death in that the Ear-Rune is the 'Earth-Grave' and the Cweorth-Rune is 'Ritual Cremation'. 

At the end of the Cycle of the Ages the world is dissolved into Chaos, into the Primal Material, into the Source, into the Darkness of the Void. This, as Blavatsky pointed out, involves the 'Dissolution of the Races' which we can clearly see happening today. Miguel Serrano's work, which we have taken up too, involves the idea that the 'Alchemical Marriage' (Male-Female) is not the end-phase of the 'Great Work' and that there is a further stage where we can go beyond this to become the God-Man. All other spiritual disciplines teach the union of male-female and the dissolution into the 'All', 'Cosmic Consciousness', 'Union with God', 'Union with Nature' etc. as the end result, but as Steed has pointed out, what would be the use of doing this since our lives would have no purpose and meaning, just being dissolved back into the source. 

Thus, the need for a union and then a separation is required to achieve going beyond, crossing the abyss (Void - Black Sun) to the Green Ray of Venus; this involves a transmutation which is achieved through Fire. Here we see the importance of the Cweorth-Rune which is the Rune of Transformation (by Fire). This transformation takes us to the Ubermensch of Friedrich Nietzsche. 

Going back to the REBIS I will now look at this as a Runic Formula - RAD - BEORC - IS. 

Rad - The journey, quest (for the Graal), the Self-Sacrifice (on the Tree of Woe).

Beorc - A regeneration (birch tree), a new beginning, rebirth, a New Dawn.

Is - The 'I' transformed into the Absolute I. 

Ra and Isis produce Horus the Son; Woden and Grid produce Widar the Avenger; Beorc is the Regenerated God. Ra is the Sun (Spirit), Isis is the Moon (Matter), Horus is the offspring - Spirit incarnate in Matter. Woden (Spirit) and Grid (Matter) produce Widar (Spirit incarnate in Matter). This is the same as Osiris (Spirit) and Isis (Matter) who give birth to Horus who is the new 'Horus-King' incarnated on Earth. 

It is interesting to note that it is Mercury (Woden) who is shown at the top, above the heads of the man-woman. It is thus Woden who ushers in the new Golden Age, who transforms the Lead into Gold, who transforms Saturn into the Golden Sun of the Golden Age. 

There seems to be no common denominator throughout the ancient images, bar for the fact they are mostly a figure, either man or woman, god or goddess, holding two animals, birds or mythical creatures. The Long Man of Wilmington shows the ancient figure of Waendal or Mundilfore, so the image suggests that of the God of Cyclic Time, the World-Turner and Cosmic-Turner. The Twin-Serpents in some images are related to the figure of a god that turns the world from the Cosmic Axis. 




The above figure shows the 'Churning of the Ocean of Milk', the 'milk' obviously symbolic of the Milky Way Galaxy. This is done by a Serpent, with Gods (Devas) and Demons (Asuras) being on either side pulling the Serpent. This is the balance of opposites or conflict of opposites. 

The Cweorth-Rune is also the Fire-Twirl which is the Creation being whisked into being by Mundilfore. It is Waendal/Mundilfore who whisks the worlds into creation. This rune thus suggests a 're-creation' of the worlds, and thus also of Man. 

In the Ar-Kan Rune-Lag we use two similar rune-staves for Ear and Cweorth' Ear has two small staves at the end of the 'arms'. These suggest the twin animals, staves, spears which are shown on the ancient symbols, and this also suggests an 'earthly' link as with the 'earth-grave' meaning given to this rune. The Cweorth-Rune has no short staves and is thus going beyond, being a Rune of Transformation by Fire. It is a Rune of Transcendence and one of the Four Hallows, which themselves contain the Graal-Runes - Calc/Stan/Gar. 













The same images appear on the Horns of Gallehus and these feature what seems to be the Lord of the Animals who is Herne the Hunter (Woden). The figure is also that of a Warrior or Twin-Warriors. The 'Lord of the Animals' is shown horned - 'The Horned One' (Woden).




On this 'Runic-Stance Horn' it appears as Twin-Warriors imposed upon each other, one upright and one sideways (third row right). This one is associated with the Wolf's Head Warriors bearing a Club (Woden) and an Axe (Thunor). 





This is an image of Shiva which is obviously derived from earlier images which may show Rudra, from which Shiva developed. Here there are four arms, which merely suggests movement

There is somewhat of a problem concerning the REBIS image, which uses classical terms rather than Northern European. This despite the amount of stuff that would have been available to scholars of the time. There are obvious connections - at a later time perhaps - with Masonry, since the same images come into Masonry. Masonry became the tool of the Counter-Initiation and the 'Third Estate' - the Merchant Age or 'Capitalism'. 

Such imagery sees the Sun as male and the Moon as female, which is the opposite of our Germanic Lore where the Sun is Female and the Moon Male. Indeed, there is also a marked difference than Tantric Lore, even though Shiva is Male (The Sun) and Shakti is Female (The Moon). Here Shiva represents Being which is static, which 'is', and which is unchangeable, and Shakti represents Becoming which suggests movement and change. Julius Evola sees this as Solar (Being) and Lunar (Becoming), the former being Male, the latter being Female. 

To understand this we may need to consider that in ancient cultures the 'Son of the Sun', the Divine King, was represented as a Male God-King. This does not negate the idea that the Sun is Female, as I will show. Ingwe-Frey is a Solar-God, as seen from the description of his Solar-Boar with 'Golden Rays'. So we could view the Sun-Spirit as Female, whilst the Sun's Rays (Boar's Spikes) are Male, and it is these rays that reach down to Earth. Thus this Sun-Spirit incarnates as a Male God-King. 

Julius Evola seems to see the Solar-Force of Being as having a far higher significance than the Lunar Force of Becoming. But Being does not change, and to bring change into effect (for whatever reason) we need Becoming - a Lunar and Feminine Force. This is the essence of the Tantric Lore where Shakti is the force of movement and change which rises from the base (Earth-Matter) and unites with Shiva (Being) in order to create a change in consciousness. This state of Becoming is perhaps symbolised by the Fylfot-Swastika, since this is the Force of Movement and Change. We can see here the Being is brought into movement and change through Becoming, though in reality Being does not change in essence. 

The great problem with symbolism is that every symbol has its meaning and its equal and opposite meaning. For example, the Rad Rune is of 'right order', the Rita, 'right action' and is the Solar Path; but it has the opposite meaning of the 'Rat', the destructive and parasitical animal that brings destruction and disease, and feeds off human waste in the main. Somehow, and in some way, it is uncannily linked to mankind. Thus, when we consider ancient symbolism and medieval symbolism we need perhaps to take into account that such symbolism can be changed into its opposite meaning in order to serve the Counter-Initiation. This has been done with the figure known as 'Baphomet' by Eliphas Levi, which suggests the union of opposites, i.e. the fusion of male-female, and black-white. This is the essence of Chaos and Racial Chaos.

The symbolism of the 'Golden Age' should also be considered in this light; what is the 'Socialist Paradise' but a theme based upon the 'Golden Age', but in reality a sick parody of what this really was. And this is the aim of the Counter-Initiation. This is no doubt a subconscious drive and many that take it up are no doubt convinced that what they are doing is right, but they do not have the true intelligence (and the True Light) to see that it is all an illusion, and that the end result is a 'Hell-on-Earth' rather than a 'Paradise' or 'Golden Age'. 

The last thing that we need to consider is that the 'One', the 'All', 'Cosmic Consciousness', 'Mother Nature' and the many other phrases used to encourage us to become 'united' with this refer not to a 'True God', nor to the 'Divine', but to the Demiurge, Ildaboath, Yahweh-Jehovah or any other name that is used for this Lord of Darkness and Chaos - as Miguel Serrano has pointed out. This 'Lord of Darkness' has become 'God'. So any 'Union with God' suggests a 'Union with the Darkness'. This is why we need to wary of the medieval images being a 'continuation' of an ancient image, even though the ancient images show very little similarity to the later ones. I am not suggesting we ignore or reject them, just that we be wary of what their underlying imagery shows. 




Baphomet



The arm-positions have been altered here to 'As Above - So Below', but the phrase 'Solve et Coagula' - 'Break down and run together' - points to the White Moon and Black Moon (White Man and Black Man). The figure is male-female and also represents the 'breaking down and running together' of the Man & Woman, as is happening today in our society. This, again, is the essence of Chaos

Lastly I would like to comment upon the concept of Kundalini since this has become one of the new 'fads' spreading over the world, in many cases from the USA. It is clear that the Kundalini Force is shown in the above figure of Baphomet where the 'phallic' symbol is a rod topped by a ball with twin-serpents reminiscent of the Caduceus of Mercury. There are so many videos and websites devoted to the 'Awakening of the Kundalini' that we need to consider why this is, and since it has become 'mainstream', what is the aim of this, since it is supposed to be a spiritual concept. 

It would seem obvious that the awakening of the Kundalini-Force is itself not a case of 'enlightenment' or some form of 'spiritual awakening', since those who are promoting this seem very far removed from any form of 'spiritual awakening', and are just offshoots of the 'New Age Movement' which is all part of the Global World Order. Indeed, many of these sites promote a forced awakening which is always deemed dangerous by those who are true Masters of this Serpent Force. It would seem obvious to me that this forced awakening is connected to a materialistic path, and that this has nothing whatever to do with a Spiritual Awakening. 

There seems no doubt that in very ancient times (possibly in Egypt) the Ancient Aryan Mysteries were stolen in some way, and then used by the growing Counter-Initiation as a counter-force to the Force of Light and Life. These Ancient Aryan Mysteries were stolen and subverted for the use of the Powers of Darkness, these being effectively 'turned on their head', or reversed in form, in order to serve the Darkness and Shadow-World. This may well be the symbolism of the cattle stolen in a raid, cattle which had to be found and taken back. This is also the symbolism of the Serpent which stole the Treasure/Gold and which the Aryan had to regain again through slaying the Serpent of Evil. The same theme occurs in Vedic India with the 'Flood' and the stealing of the Vedas (Ancient Knowledge) which had to be regained once more for the Aryans.

This is the reason why we should not reject or ignore what we see as possibly negative symbols, since where we find a symbol being 'stolen' and used against us we also find that these have an Ur-Form which contains the correct symbolism of the original meanings. These are Archetypal Symbols which have an Ur-Form but which can be overlaid with an opposite symbolism, just as in the figure of 'Jesus Christ' as the 'Hanged God', a symbol that far predates Christianity. This also shows in the imagery of Woden as the 'Horned God' being turned into its opposite as 'The Devil' or 'Satan'. 

The 'Caduceus of Mercury' is obviously symbolism connected to Woden, the Germanic God always deemed to be connected to Mercury. Thus Woden rules over the concept of the Kundalini-Force or Serpent-Force. It is the Inga-Fire which is the 'Fire of Transformation' and which transform Man into the Man-God. This has been looked at in another post.
