No, Fjörgyn Does Not Descend From Perkwunos – It’s Literally The Other Way Around

In the wake of discussion spurred up by that … curious assertion from a popular (neo-)pagan youtuber about two Nordic deifics allegedly having 'swapped genders' and this being demonstrable via linguistics - we encountered a comment asking if Fjörgyn might be something like this, predicated upon the often-encountered notion of Fjorgyn being somehow linguistically descended from … Continue reading No, Fjörgyn Does Not Descend From Perkwunos – It’s Literally The Other Way Around

The Spirits Of Ash And Fury – A RUDRAGANIKA Resonancy

It is Monday - Lord Rudra's Day - And therefore … absolutely amazing illustration by HC to further accompany our RUDRAGANIKA work looking at His Female Retinue. What we have hailed here as the Rudraganika we also find encounterable amidst the other and more westerly Indo-European spheres - as the Maenad (or the Meliae, etc.), … Continue reading The Spirits Of Ash And Fury – A RUDRAGANIKA Resonancy

The Indo-European ShivLing – Some Brief Comparative Points [Arya Akasha Arka]

Literally the same Deity. Rudra (Shiva) & Odin. To this, if we were really going to get into it, we would also be adding an array of other stone or wood focal points for worship of the Sky Father deific, found throughout the Indo-European sphere. Indeed, not just 'focal points' in the sense of altar-stones … Continue reading The Indo-European ShivLing – Some Brief Comparative Points [Arya Akasha Arka]

RudraGanika – A Study In Eternal Return As Manifested Through The Sky Father’s Female Retinue Across The Indo-European World

[Author's Note: This work brings together several (my)themes close and dear to my heart. It had been intended to be published upon MahaShivRatri - the 1st of March in 2022 - however, Time waits for no man (other than Her Husband); and my continuing to find further elements which cried out to be included resulted … Continue reading RudraGanika – A Study In Eternal Return As Manifested Through The Sky Father’s Female Retinue Across The Indo-European World

Arktos, Ursa, Rksa SaptaRsi – The Seven Bear-Seers Amidst The Stars And The Foundational Act Of Piety Of The Maidens Of Milk And Fate

Encoded within the Stars - and more specifically, the Constellations, the manner in which we project out up, upon them - is a wealth of archaic mythic meaning. We have earlier looked at some of these manifestations as applies Orion and the Pleiades (Krittikas) - now we shall turn our attentions briefly to an intricately … Continue reading Arktos, Ursa, Rksa SaptaRsi – The Seven Bear-Seers Amidst The Stars And The Foundational Act Of Piety Of The Maidens Of Milk And Fate

An Odinic Post On An Odinic Post – A ShivLing

It is Wednesday - Therefore Odinic Art Posting And I mean that quite literally! For you see, in addition to the obvious co-identification of Odin with Shiva that we have capaciously illustrated elsewhere … the ShivLing is strongly coterminous with the Irminsul. This is, therefore, an Odinic Post about an Odinic Post. Now, in terms … Continue reading An Odinic Post On An Odinic Post – A ShivLing

On The Indo-European ‘Interpretatio’ Of Dionysus – A Roaring Exaltation Of The Sky Father Comparatively Considered

Dionysus is a deservedly fascinating figure. And also a badly misunderstood one. As are many Greek deities, especially in their comparative Indo-European situation. I have written upon the linkages of Dionysus to various facings - dramatic masques, we may perhaps say - in other Indo-European pantheons in the past, and shall not seek to repeat … Continue reading On The Indo-European ‘Interpretatio’ Of Dionysus – A Roaring Exaltation Of The Sky Father Comparatively Considered

On The Indo-European Symbolism Of The Ash Tree – And The Ensuing Origins Of The Spear-Race Of Man

Often in the course of work, we begin writing about one topic - only to find that it has serious and substantial bearing upon another. Thus was the case when I sat down to pen "WORLD-SPEAR", looking at the iconic weapon of the Sky Father. I'd known that there would be significant salience for the … Continue reading On The Indo-European Symbolism Of The Ash Tree – And The Ensuing Origins Of The Spear-Race Of Man
