By Hariulf OR The white, the red and the black (sometimes black is replaced by dark blue or green) seem to be symbolic colours of great importance into the different Aryan mythologies. We find them both in the Veda and in the Edda but also in the Iranian Bundahism. Incidentally, the OR for its logo also chose those three colours. I don’t think it’s a coincidence.

By Asrad CG As the wheel of the year turns and the days grow longer and nights shorter our spirits start to lift. Without knowing darkness we cannot love the light and without experiencing the cold long nights of Winter we surely could not love the Spring and Summer as we do. Knowing and experiencing the harshness of winter means we make the most of the lighter nights and warmer days just as our folk have since the very beginning.

By Reginhard OR In Sturlson’s Poetic Edda, Gullveig is characterised as a wicked money grabbing sorceress who when visiting Asgard talks of nothing other than the love of gold. “They listened with loathing and eventually thought the world would be better off without her so they hurled her into the fire”

By Ulfhethnar Odinsen AOR The Elhaz – Algiz rune is one with many layers, complexities and associations. The relationship between two of these I’d like to consider and discuss on a more personal level as I believe this rune is symbolic of the sanctuary where one seeks to transcend the bindings of Midgarth yet we aren’t told exactly where that sacred Ve is to be found.

By Shawn E AOR - ORBriefing 221 - Spring 2261 It has been accepted by many practitioners of Asatru, Heathenism, and Odinism that Odin, All Father of the Folk sacrificed his eye at some point in Mimir’s well. However, personally I have yet to find any evidence of this sacrifice for myself in the lore we generally accept as the Prose and Poetic Eddas... or logic. It is the intention of this article to explore what I have been able to find and share it.
