Anonymous asked: Can you explain what does the symbol that you uses as a icon refers too? What's the meaning? And the true name..
It’d be my pleasure.
It has many names. Too many! A few examples: the druid’s foot, Neroic Cross, Sign of the “Broken Jew”(I’ll explain that one), symbol of the “Anti-Christ”, Teutonic Cross, Todersrune, etc. Each time someone uses it it’s usually given a new name. The Nazis used it, for instance, but it meant something entirely different to them. And guys pls, I am no Nazi. :<
Explanation for the Sign of the “Broken Jew” name(also the explanation for the “Neroic cross” name). The Roman emperor Nero is remembered for persecuting Christians. He was pretty brutal. He had his own mother executed, in fact. So, the first Roman-Jewish war started during his reign. I’m sure many of y’all know that the upside down cross is also known as St. Peter’s Cross. You may notice that this cross is pretty much that, except the arms are slanted. The most famous person to be crucified by Nero was, unsurprisingly, Apostle Peter. To symbolize humility and unworthiness in comparison to Christ, Peter requested that he be crucified with his head toward the ground. As a result, the cross was used by early Christians as a positive symbol for peace. Ironically, it’s used by some as the antichrist cross. Now, you can’t explain that.
But yeah. It was also used by the Nazis, Saracens, and quite a few others. It is also the upside down Nordic rune Eolh, and I’m pretty sure it’s been used with something to do with Nordic paganism… but fuck, I hope I’ve explained enough already. It also gave birth to the peace symbol. Feel free to correct me on any of this information, but that’s my understanding of it.
Hope it satisfies you. And you’re welcome.
