Some Notes on Widar the Avenger

Jarl Widar (Karl Maria Wiligut) writing in Hagal issue 12 in 1935 points out that the 12 zodiacal signs are in fact "original Aryan Runes":

"Because they are the original script of  Aryan humanity and at the same time have to be the original script of the Atlantean culture.
"In Atlantean times, then, these original Aryan Runes had a deep meaning by virtue of their logical ordering in the zodiacal signs, which was apparently lost as soon as their meaning was changed in an astrologically illogical way as a result of the variation brought on by by the procession of the equinoxes."

Significantly Wiligut ascribes the sign of Aries to Wid-Ar, the zodiacal symbol being a composite of the Isa and Raitho Rune staves.  Werner von Bülow, the editor of Hagal states:

"The name Wid-ar appears here for Aries [Widder], there for Sagittarius, which here bears the name Widi (Wili).

Widder as my readers may know is German for ram. Adolf Hitler, the Wotan avatar and thus spiritual father of the Widar avatar who is to come, Der Starke von Oben was born under the sign of Aries on the 20th April, which marks the beginning of the zodiacal month for that sign. 

"In Eddic mythology Odin is avenged on the Fenris wolf by Widar, who ushers in the Wood-Age (Landvidhi; vidhi means meadow [Weide], wood) in that unsown fields bear fruit. Wili is named alongside We as Odhin's brother. According to the 'Vafthrudhnismal,' Widar and Wali (who avenges Baldur on Hodur) rule over the sanctuary once Surtur's flames have gone out. He is also called Ali and is said to be the son of Odhin and Rind.
"The names indicate an inner relationship between Wali-Wili-Widi-Widar. Common to them all is the W as a sign of turning [Wending] and the sign of the ego: I. Since A expresses unity, L life, D generation, and R rhythm, ....."

Bülow associates Wali with "Life's changing the ego towards unity. Wal is the freedom to choose [Wahlfreiheit] and at the same time the realm of the dead (Walhalla), the seat of the Einherjar."

He associates Wili as "Life's changing from one ego to another through the will of light." Widi is "Generational change from one ego to another through knowledge of the tree of life, ie., of the organic nature of all changes." Of Widar he comments "The turning of the ego towards generating the rhythm of unity. His sign is the eagle [Aar], which hunts for fish among the rocky crags. He soars above solidity (rocks) and the rarified, fluid element of life (fish). He therefore also rules over the processes of growth. Unsown fields bear fruit for him."

 Bülow states "in the Wood-Age only Widar can reconstruct the Golden Age because he (Widar's shoe!) will restore pure custom."
