Asatru Yule

Asatru Yule Cover YULE (O.N. Jol) The Reason for the Season!

Yule begins on Mother Night, (about Dec. 20) the night before the shortest day and the longest night (winter solstices). We honor the Beginning of the Sun's return and the breaking of Winter, (which is most noticeable in five days) and is celebrated over a twelve day period. We know there will be no Fimbulwinter which proceeds Ragnarok.

It is a time of the year when our deceased Ancestors are closest to us; this is when the dead (draugar) are more active than any other time. Yule is when Jolnir another name for Odinn leads the procession of the Wild Hunt through the sky's with sprits of humans, horses and dogs. This procession occurs during all twelve days of Yule.

It is a time for great feasting, honoring Thorr for driving back the frost etins, Frey to give us prosperity in the coming year, Odinn as leader of the Wild Hunt, and of course our Ancestors. Jolablot, have a Yule party with family and kindred. Decorate a tree with sunwheels and light a Yule Log.

The Yule Tree is the symbol of our cosmology; it’s the Great tree Yggdrasil. From the Voluspa;

"Yggdrasil its name.
With water white is the Great Tree wet;
Thence come the dews that fall in the dales.
Green by Urths well does it ever grow."

And so the evergreen tree is the most appropriate, to remind us of the eternity of Yggdrasil, as it last through out winters Ever Green.


The burning of a Yule Log is an ancient ritual; our ancestors kindled a huge oak log in honor of Thorr. Today we burn a smaller log during the Yule Season. When lighting the new Yule Log it should be with the charred remains of the previous year's log, which is, keep to guard the house against lightning and fire.


Twelfth Night (about Jan. 1) culminates the traditional twelve days of Yule. Our Ancestors at this time consecrated a boar to Frey, led it out so everyone present could lay their hand on the boar and swear a solemn Oath. This was to honor Frey for prosperity. Oaths sworn on the Oath-Boar are very binding during this time, than any other time of the year. Make a New Year's resolution in the old way by swearing your oath on Frey's boar or on your hammer.

The Yule is no exception when it comes to Christian plagiarism of other cultures Holidays. There is no doubt that the Yule Tree, Yule Log, the Singing and exchanging of Gifts are from our Northern Culture. Click here, and I will show you proof from their bible, what time of the year Jesus was born. (source:

Wunjo Rune Of Joy And Hope Occult Symbols

Wunjo Rune Of Joy And Hope Occult Symbols Image
The viking rune Wunjo is another ancient occult symbol. This rune is very powerful and has been used throughout the ages. If unsure of what the runes are exactly, I mentioned this in a previous post on Algiz the Rune of protection. A brief history of runes goes like this -

Runes are very old powerful occult symbols that originated from Norse, Germanic peoples history predating over 1300 BC. They are an old magical language that is believed to have been discovered by Odin (often referred to as the Viking God) to allow the people to use the elements of nature around them. Often the runes will symbolize elements around us, such as trees, rivers, mountains and many more..


Wunjo is the rune of Joy and hope and as can be seen from the image of the symbol above generally is referred to as the flag symbol. The long poll and the flag showing by the triangle symbol at the top. Many indications of its use are the representation of a victorious battle. "The joyous celebration of a triumphant victory.."

If an individual uses the Wunjo symbol Magically say in a necklace or talisman the Wunjo symbol is said to bestow or encourage a victory or attainment of a desired outcome. In a way the rune Wunjo looks beyond the victory of the achievement all the way to the celebration following the victory and is therefore is an essential aid in completing your magical visualization.

Simply said Wunjo brings luck and hope and joy to those overcoming great odds. It does not have to represent a real battle, it may be a spiritual battle or even a victory of achievement of something where added help is needed. That is where Wunjo comes in.

"I have Wunjo on my side, so my happy victory is already said.. My outcome is already written.."

"KEYWORD MEANINGS OF WUNJO - The Wunjo Rune symbol is the 8th letter in the elder furthark. It represents Joy, happiness, victory, ecstasy, glory, reward, success, recognition, accomplishment, celebration, comfort, pleasure, fellowship, harmony, prosperity."

Hindu Deities

Hindu Deities Image
Krishna, upon him be peace, is a central spiritual figure of many traditions of Hinduism. He appears in both Bhagavata Purana and Bhagavad Gita. Most probably he appeared in earthly realm about five thousands years ago in Mathura, ancient India.

Here is selected excerpts on understanding the personality of Krishna and his wisdom from two enlightened masters, Sufi Inayat Khan and Osho.

Sufi Inayat Khan writes: The life of Krishna is an ideal. It gives the picture of the life of a perfect man. The real meaning of the word Krishna is God. The man who was identified with that name was the God-conscious one who fulfilled his message in the period in which he was destined to give it.

... latter part of Krishna's life has two very important aspects. One aspect teaches us that life is a continual battle and the earth is the battlefield where every soul has to struggle, and the one who wants to own the kingdom of the earth must be well acquainted with the law of warfare. In the battle of life man's position is most difficult. He has to fight on two fronts at the same time: one enemy is himself, and the other is before him.

The battle of each individual has a different character; it depends upon a man's particular grade of evolution. Therefore every person's battle in life is different, and of a peculiar character. No one in the world is exempt from that battle; only, one is more prepared for it while the other is perhaps ignorant of the law of warfare. And in the success of this battle lies the fulfillment of life. The Bhagavad-Gita, the Song Celestial, from the beginning to end is a teaching on the law of life's warfare.

The other aspect of Krishna's life shows that every soul is striving to attain God - not God, as Judge or King, but as the Beloved. Every soul seeks God, the God of love, in the form it is capable of imagining, and thus the story of Krishna and the Gopis signifies God and the various souls seeking perfection.

Excerpt only. There is much more what Inayat Khan speaks of Krishna and interprets his life. read the complete article here.

Excerpt from "Krishna: The Man and His Philosophy" by Osho: Krishna is so unique. He is not at all serious or sad, not in tears. By and large, the chief characteristic of a religious person has been that he is somber, serious and sad looking - like one vanquished in the battle of life, like a renegade from life. In the long line of such sages it is Krishna alone who comes dancing, singing and laughing.

Every religion, upto now, has divided life into two parts, and while they accept one part they deny the other. Krishna alone accepts the whole of life. And he accepts it not in any selected dimension but in all its dimensions. About him it is said he was born laughing. Only a joyful and laughing humanity can accept Krishna.

Krishna is against repression. He alone does not choose he accepts life unconditionally. He does not shun love; being a man he does not run away from women. As one who has known and experienced God, he alone does not turn his face from war. He is full of love and compassion, and yet he has the courage to accepts and fight a war. His heart is utterly non-violent, yet he plunges into the fire and fury of violence when it becomes unavoidable. He accepts the nectar, and yet he is not afraid of the poison.

We describe the life of Krishna as his leela, his play-acting, because Krishna is not serious at all. Krishna's life accepts no limitations. Krishna is free, limitlessly free. And this freedom, this vastness of Krishna stems from his experience of self-knowledge. It is the ultimate fruit of his enlightenment.

There is no such point in the cosmos where nature ends and God begins. It is nature itself that, through a subtle process of dissolution, turns into God, and it is God Himself Who, through a subtle process of manifestation, turns into nature. Nature is manifest God, and God is unmanifest nature. And that is what adwait means, what the principle of One without the other means. We can understand Krishna only if we clearly understand this concept of adwait, that only One is - One without the other.

The e-book version is available at

Note: while reading the life of Krishna, time and time again it came to my mind, how parallel and similar is the life of the Last Messenger of God, Muhammad and that of Krishna, upon them be bliss of God. Specially while reading 'Krishna's heart is utterly non-violent, yet he plunges into the fire and fury of violence when it becomes unavoidable.'... more sharing of that thought God willing in the next post, Krishna and Muhammad.

Myths Of The Norsemen From The Eddas And Sagas

Myths Of The Norsemen From The Eddas And Sagas Cover

Book: Myths Of The Norsemen From The Eddas And Sagas by Helene Adeline Guerber

The religion of a people who could produce such a literature as this must be worthy of study, especially as we can see the results of northern heathenism developing until the end of the tenth century without interference either from Christian thought or from the Latin culture so closely bound up with it. The doors between Scandinavia and the East were still open when this literature came into being, and memories of a pre-Christian Celtic culture yet remained alive. It is a setting of another kind from that to which we have grown accustomed, that of Mediterranean influences impinging early on the Germanic world; and there are great riches awaiting the explorers of the realm of thought in that complex and vigorous age about which all too little is known. Of men’s attitude to life the literature tells us much, and we must recognise the strength amid sanity of it; how much can it tell us of their thoughts Concerning Death and the soul? This work is an attempt to begin the answer to this question, and if it can reveal something of the variety and richness of the lost religion of the North it will have served its purpose. Originally this book formed Part of a thesis accepted in 1940 for the degree of Ph.D. in the University of Cambridge. It was while holding a research studentship from Newnham College that I completed the greater part of the work, and my first acknowledgment must be to the College for the generous help it has provided. To Professor and Mrs. Chadwick I owe more than can be easily expressed: the discovery of both the inspiration and discipline of research, and unfailing help, both with practical advice and encouragement, the whole of the way. I would like also to thank Mr. and Mrs. J. M. de Navarro and Mr. G. N. Garmonsway for many suggestions and for their sympathetic interest; and Miss G. D. Willcock, who read the book in manuscript, and Miss Helen Brown, who read the proofs and assisted with the index, for their helpful criticism and support. Finally my thanks are due to the Syndics of the University Press for undertaking the publication of this book, despite the difficulties of war-time, and to its Staff for the courtesy and efficiency they have shown throughout.

All About Runes

All About Runes Image
What runes be are a symbolic line drawing that are empowered by thought and actions. The runes are a dialect of symbols meant for reading/writing, divination, and magical (re)actions. There are thousands of runesets that come from across the globe. Amongst thm be the alphabet with 26 letters, the elder futhark with 24 letters, the chinese alphabet with over 1000 letters listed here and here, the greek alphabet with less than 26 letters, the sea-elven (atlantian) alphabet of over 1000 and letters and the arabic alphabet with 40 letters. To make a rune ye use a runequest to make a new rune.

Now to use the runes in reading/writing, divination and magic and the runequest look below:

Reading and writing runes

To read and write with the runes ye must be familiar with the alphabet itself. The way the culture writes the words and phrases are how to use them. Such as chinese write downwards and english be written left to right. Atlantian is written any direction that be a line. The arabic alphabet is right to left. To read the written alphabet ye think of the meaning association that fits the letter.


The way of divination be to make the runic tile first by carving or burning the entire runeset into or onto an suface while thinking on yer need for divination on some form of material sliver called tines. The tine material should be used as to yer craftsman level. What materials be there? Wood, stone, paper, metal or bone be the prospects. A runic tine set is a carved runeset and these rune tines are kept in a rune bag for divination or magical purposes. When making the tines wait a day before usage because each rune takes a little energy from the air and after the entire runic tineset be made thier is very little energy so things could fail on ye.

Now after the runset be carved and a day passes, draw the runetines from the bag one by one as the drawn rune will impart an image of the future to yer mind..Draw the runes till ye get a clear enough picture of what might happen for the person ye drew them for or yerself. thus ye write the vision down or try to remember it. Its best to do this live as one live future tell will clarify many things and try to use instinct as instict will tell ye true. The Elder Futharc Divination meanings are here.


The way of magic with runes is to draw the rune or carve it into something while knowing and thinking about the purpose ye have for it. The elder futhark runeset for magic purposes is here @ and some others are at the runepage. Upon ye drawng the rune ye will find the rune had taken energy from yerself, the air surround, and the rune creator. This achieves the immortality of the runemaker and grants the runemaker power for each time is done as to mention a name of that which was created by a person gives him power by its use. The magic rune comes in three forms of script form, lockrune form, and simple form.

Runescripts are the runes in a straight line in certain number groups called magic clusters of 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13. The metallic numbers or antimagic clusters are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14. These rune clusters are for indicating a certain outcome to make happen by influence. A working common sense of the rune itself be necessary for a competently made runescript and that includes knowing the rune. The Antimagic clusters work because of the material bonding of pairs and by using the pairing numbers ye use the power of the logical consequence and metals. The use of the antimagic makes the effects opposite of the intended meaning. Using the magical clusters ye use illogical influence to make things happen as depicted in the sequence. The effects of the magical be positive results to the intended runic sequence.

The occurence of Antimagic actions can be to do the action sequence from right to left and opposite as depicted by the runes in a line. The effects of the magical actions can be to do the actions in order from left to right and as the crafter would want. Now the lockrunes are combined into one flowing design to make something happen. The effects flow together to have an effect of single purpose and the same rules for the runic scripts apply here of magic clusters and antimagic clusters. The magic cluster lockrune makes an effect of the total number of runes wheras the antimagic cluster lockrune makes for the single effect to be negative. Flipping the rune reverses its meaning making positive negative and negative positive. The antimagic runes are all negative and have devastating effect from a positive source(ye) and the bad energy of the rune create havoc, for in math ax-b=-c or 1x-1=-1 unless handled right as in not thinking of yerself as ye draw it. If ye use a negative source with the rune from source linking ye will get a positive result, as a negative with a negative gets positive. Like in math where -bx-a=c, or -1x-1=1 where the positive source with a negative rune gets negative.

As temporal runes are temporary runes considered temporary for the fact that thier objects placed that look like or mean the rune or are in the shape of the rune and resemble it. And they can interact in time as well as if they were long lived runes an its as 1 minute of effect can be 100 years or a minute of effect somewhere else. As in a scarf that is placed in a pattern which acts as the rune and in whatever time as necessary as all runes carved or otherwise may do. To do as is in efficiency what the rune is.

Finally the single rune by itself has the effect of the magical effect ye know as listed in a runic listing like "A Practical Guide to the Runes by Lisa Peschel." This be excepted by the effect of making yer own runes in which ye make the meaning. The Magic of the rune itself comes from the belief, and the will to allow the rune to enact itself as most runes are intelligent by ye imprinting the object on use with yer mind, and will do as it must to achieve the result. This makes the rune sometimes unpredictable as it chooses the route of idea to achieve rune of movement.

The runequest

The rune quest is by two methods and the first method that makes the rune through effort of actions done toward the rune thats created by yer mind and this starts with the concept ye want to achieve with a rune. It must be a worthy concept or the effect is wasted. The rune then starts taking form in yer mind as ye do actions while thinking on the rune and after each action that ye do the rune takes on its form. After a while, the rune will cause ye to draw itself in a moment ye be unaware of on anything including air. After being drawn ye will recognize the rune anywhere ye look as it will give ye immortal power the more its used.

Then a second method is of the runes that are quick made are through thinking of the effect and drawing the lines as to what ye want of it or want by it. The effect is of runes that are drawn and powered by the mind in a form of soul harmonizing by use and the actions are the drawing. Sharing the rune by use or drawing/carving it will strengthen it. Once its made by any methos, its to use it or see it as made into things as of objects or a persons use. As its used, ye are empowered each time of its own integrity in use.

But if ye disbelieve, its just the same as though they still might work if created by someone else or they won't if created by ye if its yer design and desire, as its only a drawn line on in something without yer belief. ye can also break a rune by pouring energy into the weak part of a rune, especially if its just created. The point where a line meets a line is the weak part. Yes ye can use part of a rune as the focus for yer energies.

So to just try to make a rune, is as to feel the power of a source or nothingness going into the rune and that makes it happen easier. Just feel the rune effect by imaging it and let yer hand draw it as ye don't have to see it. There is the fact that a rune exists, as also other somethings as an object somewhere in or of an objevtive force that will work with the idea, as ye have at the moment an interaction or intereaction happens to occur the effect. This something has a useable symbolic link that may be if used as a rune.

The rune efficiency

Inscribed runes on paper, or other medium have the 'balance' power of the runes. We measure runes power by the base of them being inscribed on non-descript writing material. Surfaces such as wood, stone, glass, cloth add extra power. The different colours used add differing properties. The time taken and dedication to the rune inscribing will add potency. Accuracy of the rune being inscribed also increases potency.

Runes, drawn on the body with pen or paint, have slightly increased strength than written paper runes. As the rune rubs away so does the power, though an astral residue is left.

Residue - This is left when a rune is scribed on anything. The more violent the destruction of the written rune, the faster scatters the energy from the birth site. Runes on stone, worn away by time leave an astral print that ebbs away for the length and potency depending on the original rune. Runes inscribed on flesh follow the spirit and soul once it has left the body. These are nekros - false and dead runes.

Runes inscribed into flesh (scarrification) have the ability of giving instant power to the one it is written on. Properties better used on different chakra points or limbs, the power granted directly linked to the rune carved. As the scar stays deep and visible, the power continues. Power decrease for small scars and others that have healed over years.

The power-giving property is why rune carving is seen mostly as satanic. It has the property of instantly giving energies without divine intervention from spirits or gods, highly disliked by many religious sects though ye will see the priests and tribal priests use it themselves. As the wound heals, the rune is bound to the spirit of the person. (Think of the canisters in Geneforge, without the madness)

Incomplete runes on skin have a decreased power and a distortion in the power, though it can be fixed by the completion of the rune, harder to do as it ages. Badly inscribed runes and malformed runes also have a decreased and distorted energy signature. Rubbing ashes (Only use the natural antiseptic wood ash unless ye want blood poisoning) into the wound when open can darken the scar when healed. It is hard to judge the appearance the rune will be and it's strength due to keloiding though with body manipulation this can also be negated. Tattoos as runes give the same effect as writing on paper - because of the soul link they do not bond with the person and only a slight increase in power is seen. For more skin carving information

Material properties have an effect on the rune, as inscribing on wood will give a connection to the earth element, inscribing on crystals will add the original crystal property which is why it is good practice to use materials that work in harmony with the rune intention, just as ye would with elementalism.

Rituals also increase the potency of any type of rune.

Colour properties in runes - properties.php

The runes to be given the least of all strength are ones drawn through the air, figurative runes and astral runes though in effect these can be quite powerful as an abstract item.

Yule Celebrations In Estonia

Yule Celebrations In Estonia Cover Yule or Yule-tide is a winter festival that was initially celebrated by the Historical Germanic Peoples as a pagan religious festival, though it was later absorbed into, and equated with, the Christian festival of Christmas. The festival was originally celebrated from late December to early January on a date determined by the lunar Germanic calendar. The festival was placed on December 25 when the Christian calendar (Julian calendar) was adopted. Some historians claim that the celebration is connected to the Wild Hunt or was influenced by Saturnalia, the Roman winter festival.

Terms with an etymological equivalent to "Yule” are still used in the Nordic Countries for the Christian Christmas, but also for other religious holidays of the season. In modern times this has gradually led to a more secular tradition under the same name as Christmas. Yule is also used to a lesser extent in English-speaking countries to refer to Christmas. Customs such as the Yule log, Yule goat, Yule boar, Yule singing, and others stem from Yule. In modern times, Yule is observed as a cultural festival and also with religious rites by some Christians and by some Neopagans.

"Joul" (singular), more commonly used in plural as "joulud". Celebrated in line with the Finnish customs. The old tradition of celebrating the winter solstice has nowadays been predominantly replaced or mixed with Protestant or secularised Christmas holidays. Traditional "joul” celebrations can still be encountered.

Traditionally, "joulud” were sacred days marking the end of one season and the beginning of the new one. The Earth turned herself towards light, warmth, food and life. It was believed that one’s behaviour in the times of joul determined the good fortune of oneself and the whole household. The souls of deceased relatives were awaited back home; they were seen having a great deal of influence on the fortune of the living.

The household was thoroughly cleaned, decorated and the most abundant dishes of the year were prepared. Dried straws were laid across the cleaned floors to signify the start of "joulud”. During the Yule time from 21 to 27 December a light had to be on at all times. Also, it had to be made sure light would not escape the house through the windows, so the latter were carefully covered.

It was peaceful time for reflection and family, hence games and riddles were played.

Asatru Faq Part 4

Asatru Faq Part 4 Cover What About These Gods and Goddesses? Are They Real?

Yes, they are real. However, just as most Christians do not think their God is really an old bearded figure sitting on a golden chair in heaven, we do not believe Thor (for example) is actually a muscular, man-shaped entity carrying a big hammer. There is a real Thor, but we approach an understanding of him through this particular mental picture.

Do followers of Asatru Pray to Their Gods and Goddesses?

Yes, but not quite the way most people mean by the word. We never surrender our will to theirs or humble ourselves before them, because we see ourselves as their kin, not as inferior, submissive pawns. Nor do we beg and plead. We commune with them and honor them while seeking their blessing through formal rites and informal meditation. Living a full and virtuous live is a form of prayer in itself. Our religion affects all parts of our lives, not just those fragments that we choose to call "religious".

Don't You worship Stones and Trees and Idols?

No. These objects are not Gods, so we don't worship them. We do sometimes use these items as reminders of a God or Goddess, and we believe they can become "charged" with a certain aspect of the divine energy, but we would never confuse them with the actual deities.

What are the Standards of Behavior Taugt in Asatru?

Some of the qualities we hold in high regard are strength, courage, joy, honor, freedom, loyalty to kin, realism, vigor, and the revering of our ancestors. To express these things in our lives is virtuous, and we strive to do this. Their opposites - weakness, cowardice, adherence to dogma rather than to the realities of the world, and the like - constitute vices and are to be avoided. Proper behavior in Asatru consists of maximizing one's virtues and minimizing one's vices. This code of conduct reflects the highest and most heroic ideals of our people.

Don't all Religions Believe in These Things You've Just Named?

No. People may honestly believe that this is the case, but examination does not bear this out. They believe in freedom, yet their scriptures say they are slaves to their God. They accept that joy is good, but their teachings laden them with guilt because of some imaginary "original sin". Their instinct is to understand Nature's world from verifiable evidence, yet they are trained to believe black is white, round is flat, and natural instincts are evil without question when the teachings of their church conflict with reason or with known facts.

Many of us instinctively believe in the values of Asatru because they have been passed down to us from our ancestors. We want to believe that other religions espouse those values, so we see what we want to see. Most people just haven't yet realized that the major religions are saying things that conflict with the values we know in our hearts are right. To find Northern European virtues, one should look where those virtues have their natural home - Asatru.

God Freyr

God Freyr Cover Freyr is a Vanir God who represents fertility and is the counterpart to his sister Freya. It is said that Freyr rules over the rain and sunshine and the abundance of harvest on Earth. Freyr is also known for having a wonderful ship known as Skithbladnir, and is often symbolized by a boar.

Frey means "Lord" and is more of a title than a name. The real name of this god may have been Ing, which means "Hero". Frey is a Van, and son of Njord. He may actually be synonymous with this god, and been the god sacrificed to Nerthus during certain of her rituals. (Two separate traditions might have given the god different names, and when the traditions came together again it was decided they were father and son.) He is the god who taught agriculture to men, and is known as "God of the Earth". He is prayed to in matters concerning crops, and virility. His quest for the giantess Gerdhr, the Earth, cost him his sword. For this reason he will be forced to fight at Ragnarok with a stag's antler, and it will cost him his life. He may be identical with a series of semi-mythical kings known as Frodhi, and as such legends about them may be taken as legends about him. But I have not yet talked with enough Frey's men to make up my own mind on this matter. Frey is lord of peace, and plenty, and good harvest. He owns a marvelous ship that can fly and folds up so small as to fit in his pocket. (It is thus possibly a symbol of virility, a phallic symbol.) The horse is sacred to Frey. He rides upon a golden-bristled boar, who may be the sun, which would actually make Frey a solar deity. There is more on Frey in the section on runes under the Ing rune.
