  • Saturn

    saturn_symbol-svg

    Saturn

    the planet Saturn represents the alchemical metal, lead. The image mimics the scythe of Saturn, the god of the harvest and time.  The qualities of Saturn include limitation, protection, and restraint; lead is therefore used historically where these qualities are required- it is still common to see lead-lined caskets, and it is traditional to keep scriptures and religious relics shielded in lead reliquaries.

    Alchemically, lead was the prima matera, or primal matter, and represented the putrefaction and decay necessary for new life.

    The sigil is similar to the Hebrew letter Tau, which also has associations with time and death(alchemy).  Saturn is also the roman correspondence of greek god Chronos,  the personification of Time (mythology).

    Carl Jung says: “The prima materia is ‘saturnine,’ and the malefic Saturn is the abode of the devil, or again it is the most despised and rejected thing, ‘thrown out into the street,’ ‘cast on the dung-hill,’ ‘found in filth” (alchemy/psychology).

  • Sol Niger

    Sol Niger

    (alchemy) the Black Sun can refer to the first stage of the alchemical magnum opus, the nigredo (blackening); The black sun is used to illuminate the dissolution of the body, a blackening of matter, or putrefaction in Splendor Solis,[and Johann Daniel Mylius’s Philosophia Reformata. The Sol Niger is a symbol of Saturn and represents the obscure and destructive sun. “The Black Sun is the exterior sun and his devouring dark fire destroys everything”; After the fall of Adam, marked by the Original Sin, every man is made by Sol Niger; according to The Book of Holy Trinity.

    In Viridiarium Chymicum, the “Material Fire” of the Black Sun separates the spirit and the soul from the putrefied body- The “Putrefaction” (Nigredo or blackness) was a first step in the pathway to the philosopher’s stone all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter.

    The Black Sun of the Wewelsburg castle – Within the castle walls rituals were performed, much of them largely based upon Germanic pagan origins and concepts of Valhalla, the quest for the Holy Grail, and other tales surrounding issues of nobility, purity, or divinity. (nachtkabarett.com). The origin of the symbol is commonly related to the ancient cult of Odin (Odinism) and the sun wheel found on the ground floor of the castle could be related to the Thule Society, an occultist secret society. it is said this society has more than 1000 years and they were intended to promote the old European religious traditions, such as Druidism, Odismism, Wotanism the Asatru and Vanatru. in the XX century their intentions became much darker.
