Wendehorn


Wendehorn

Wendehorn is a "runic" symbol resembling the Tvimadur symbol. It is allegedly a bindrune of the "Man" and "Yr" runes, symbolizing 'life' and 'death' respectively. The term is due to Guido von List's "Das Geheimnis der Runen", where it does not figure as a full member of the Armanen runes, but is mentioned in the context of the crescent moon being "the rune of Freya, who promotes childbirth."It was taken up by List's Armanist followers, such as Rudolf John Gorsleben [ Gorsleben, Rudolf John" Hoch-Zeit der Menschheit" ] , and Siegfried Adolf Kummer [Kummer, Siegfried Adolf "Heilige Runenmacht" ] and is still in use in Irminenschaft and Armanenschaft-inspired esotericism today (Karl Spiesberger, [ Spiesberger, Karl "Runenmagie, Runenexerzitien fur Jedermann, Reveal the Power of the Pendulum" ] Karl Hans Welz, [ [http://www.magitech.com/~runes/] ; [http://www.runemagick.com/] ] [Knights of Runes" [http://www.armanen.com] ] Stephen E. Flowers, Adolf Schleipfer, Larry E. Camp [Handbook of Armanen Runes" by Larry E. Camp [http://www.europaltd.com] ] , V. Kasen [Kasen, Victor Ordell L. ' [http://geocities.com/fjornpim/ Personal website] ' "] ).

Karl Maria Wiligut utilised this symbol [a.k.a. Widar, Jarl "Whispering of Gotos - Rune-Knowledge [from Hagal 11 (1934), Heft 7, pp. 7-15] " ] , referring to it as 'Wend-horn', in his own runic row but didn’t develop his runic row until 1934 and the Wendehorn is mentioned in List 1908, Gorsleben 1930 and Kummer 1932. Its earliest reference in contemporary times is in the many works of Guido von List, of which many are published before 1908.

Karl Spießberger in his 1955 "Runenmagie" identified it as a combination of "male "Man" and "female "Yr", symbolizing a hierosgamos.

The Wendehorn appears in "runic massage" [http://www.runen-medizin.de/runensymbolmassage.html]

A Wendehorn shape is shown in the logo of the band Belborn [http://www.apostazja.serpent.com.pl/images/news/belborn.jpg] .
