Sons of the Sun – A Brief Comparative Of The Indo-European Progenitor Twins

The Indo-European Myth of the Progenitor Twins is quite literally foundational for who we are and how we relate to the people, the world around us. It is therefore unsurprising that even despite occasional alterations, it has remained so recognizably pervasive amidst the descendant Indo-European peoples. In our recent "Sons of the Sun" series, we … Continue reading Sons of the Sun – A Brief Comparative Of The Indo-European Progenitor Twins

The Radiant Queen of the Heavens – On Scythian Tabiti As Template For The Greater Indo-European Solar Goddess [Part 3 – The Wide Shining One And The Eye Of The Bright Sky]

The point of all of this, has been to attempt to sketch out in broad (solar-ray-diant, perhaps via illumination, provided you don't look too directly at it) brush-strokes a sort of typology for the situation. One wherein we can clearly see that the Sky Father's Consort may have been 'replicated' and referred to in various … Continue reading The Radiant Queen of the Heavens – On Scythian Tabiti As Template For The Greater Indo-European Solar Goddess [Part 3 – The Wide Shining One And The Eye Of The Bright Sky]

The Radiant Queen of the Heavens – On Scythian Tabiti As Template For The Greater Indo-European Solar Goddess [Part 2 – The Suns of the Sky Father and the Hidden Suns]

However, before we attempt to address Tabiti directly - as well as the Queen of the Heavens Indo-European deific complex for which She stands - it is first necessary to spend a bit more time sketching out the broader Solar Goddess typology of the Indo-Europeans. This is because, as it happens, there are several and … Continue reading The Radiant Queen of the Heavens – On Scythian Tabiti As Template For The Greater Indo-European Solar Goddess [Part 2 – The Suns of the Sky Father and the Hidden Suns]

On ‘Moon’ And Moon God – A Brief Comparative Of Several Major Indo-European Religions

It is MONDAY - quite literally "Moon['s] Day"; and therefore, a brief look at the names for the Indo-European Moon God in various descendant languages and faith-groupings. Now, note that I said "Moon God" - I have not included any Moon Goddesses, as these are largely restricted to the Greek & Roman mythologies, perhaps as … Continue reading On ‘Moon’ And Moon God – A Brief Comparative Of Several Major Indo-European Religions

The Radiant Queen of the Heavens – On Scythian Tabiti As Template For The Greater Indo-European Solar Goddess [Part 1 – The Figurative Eclipse And Unconquered Re-Emergence Of The Solar Goddess Deific]

It is one of those curious little mysteries of our sphere - how particular portions of the Indo-European mythology have changed and shifted to acquire the now entrenched archetypal connotations we are so familiar with today ... especially in those areas wherein the modern perception of things is so clearly at odds with how things … Continue reading The Radiant Queen of the Heavens – On Scythian Tabiti As Template For The Greater Indo-European Solar Goddess [Part 1 – The Figurative Eclipse And Unconquered Re-Emergence Of The Solar Goddess Deific]

The Scythian Idanthyrsus As Fundamentally Indo-European Man

As is widely-known by now, one of my favourite portions of Herodotus' Persian Wars is the exchange between the Scythian king Idanthyrsus, and Darius the would-be world-emperor. There are some obvious reasons why this is so, and in previous posts I have gone into some detail explicating them. But for today, I thought we would … Continue reading The Scythian Idanthyrsus As Fundamentally Indo-European Man

Sons of the Sun Part V: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: Forensic Theology [Section 3]

So, to bring it all back together - and hopefully rather simply - the Myth of Romulus & Remus provides something quite fascinating to us. For it is an account that has obviously transposed something far older, and in some ways far grander [that is to say, the origin of the Race of Man - … Continue reading Sons of the Sun Part V: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: Forensic Theology [Section 3]

Sons of the Sun Part IV: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: The Remurian Empire of the Underworld – Rome’s Dark Reflection [Section 2]

Yet if I am right … where is the Underworld association for Remus? Answer? Right there in the Romans' own knowledge of their ancestral religion.  Lemuria, to be precise. The occurrence each year wherein the Lemures - the Shades of the Dead - come back to the mortal city. Ovid identifies "Lemuria" as having etymological … Continue reading Sons of the Sun Part IV: Romulus And Remus Reconstructed: The Remurian Empire of the Underworld – Rome’s Dark Reflection [Section 2]

The Indo-European Man – Sons of the Sun [Part II]: Yama And Manu – Firstborn of the Indo-Aryans

So, with that in mind - let us take a brief look at probably the oldest Indo-European origin myth that has come down to us: the Vedic understanding, which is to my mind also the 'cleanest' and easiest to directly understand. Both due to its age, and the strong presence of pretty much all the … Continue reading The Indo-European Man – Sons of the Sun [Part II]: Yama And Manu – Firstborn of the Indo-Aryans

Soma Kvasir Abbreviated – The Myth of the Mead of Poetry, Distilled

In a bid to make some of the content from last week's Soma and the Mead of Poetry article more accessible, I've compiled a brief side-by-side comparative of the most important direct equivalencies we've identified between these, drawn from the Skaldskaparmal and various Vedic hymnals: Eddic - Vedic - Meaning E: Kvasir - V: Soma … Continue reading Soma Kvasir Abbreviated – The Myth of the Mead of Poetry, Distilled
