The Black Sun.
Firstly I’d like to say that this post below inspired me to make this topic.
Now to really break down and dissect what the black sun is we have to dive into quite a lot of things, as there isn’t one definition of the black sun.
Nazi Symbolism Of The Black Sun.
Let’s first look at symbolism, it’s seen as a a black sun/solar wheel, introduced by Neo-Nazi and their occult organisations. The symbol was first introduced during Nazi Germany, it was a design for the castle Wewelsburg castle and later remodelled and expanded by Heinrich Himmler. Which was originally for the SS and was meant to be apart of their logo. It acted as a substitute for the swastika, this is quite common as the Nazis often inverted and used spiritual symbolism and tainted it with their own false definition. Now it’s time to move away from this symbolism and further dissect the nature and the black sun.
The Black Sun In Alchemy.
The Black Sun, also known as Sol Niger refers to the first stage of alchemical magnum opus, the nigredo (blackening). The black sun is used to illuminate the dissolution of the body, the blackening of matter and/or putrefaction in Splendor Solis.
The Black Sun In Mesoamerica Mythology.
In Mesoamerica mythology there are many meanings to the black sun, it has connections and associations with the god Quetzalcoatl. It had other connections as the Mexicas believed there were two suns, the young day sun as well as the ancient dark sun. There are also some beliefs knocking about within this pantheon that scholars believe, the black sun could be the ancient female origin of all that is, known as the womb and tomb.
The Aztecs associated the black sun with the passage of the black sun with a night journey through the underworld using the butterfly imagery. The butterfly being the archetypal symbol of the transcendent soul, transformation and mystical rebirth. This is represented in the figure of the terrifying goddess of earth, Itzpapalotl also called “Obsidian Butterfly”. The devourer of people during the solar eclipse, when the underworld was a eternal dwelling place of souls.
Ahriman The Black Sun.
In Zoroastrianism there are two major gods, some argue they are twin brothers, while others argue they are two sides of the same force. Ahura Mazda is the god of light, also known as the creator, he is the sun and the lord of wisdom. For he is the normal sun, yet Ahriman the god of darkness, lord of chaos is the black sun.
Ahura Mazda representing the formed which can be seen as the limitation of existence and Ahriman Is the unformed black sun, the limitless potentiality.
Whereas the tree of life, the sephiroth has these planetary associations within the spheres. The sphere, Tiphereth being the sun/solar sphere. Whereas the Qliphoth is different the sphere Thagirion is not the sun, it is the black sun. Thagirion is often referred to as “The Opposer”. For the dark illumination of the backward tree of night is indeed the black sun, here the initiate experiences the union of god and beast within. Where Belphégor rules over and Sorath dwells.
The In-depth Black Magick Dissection.
The Black Sun is the gateway of liberation through chaos, it is the un-manifest and manifest spiritual potential. While on the Sephiroth the sun represents the light of god or the power of the divine, free flowing into existence. While the black sun on the Qliphoth is a inverse flow, pulling the light of creation and the power of the divine backwards into a singularity. Reuniting the aspects and emanations of existence, to collapse into that of a dark singularity, a black hole or more commonly known as the black sun. In Zoroastrianism the sun is actually Ahura Mazda, the creator and god of light. Ahriman who is the black sun, the god of darkness looks at the creation of Ahura Mazda, noticing the stasis, the limitations, restrictions, weakness and frailty of the whole thing. Looking at this we can view Ahura Mazda as what seems to be a glorious sun, the rays and emanations of the sun being the angels and forms of this limited existence. Look at Ahriman a black sun, the dark solar rays emanating these are the divs (Persian demons), for their dark solar rays are emanations of that which is limitless, the infinite potential.
We can look at the aspect of light and darkness to truly understand this, whether it be the light of Ahura Mazda & the darkness of Ahriman, or the light of the sephiroth and the black light of the qliphoth. The light representing order and that which is already manifest, the black light/darkness represents chaos and that which is not yet manifest.
So in this sense the light is seen as a lie, which I’d often is presented as the great truth. See a lie will often claim to be a truth, whilst the absolute truth does not concern itself by appearing to be true at all.
The black sun isn’t just a symbol it is an actual energetic construct, not manmade it is an actual spiritual vortex/dark singularity of the unformed, powers of darkness, chaos, acasual existence and the limitless potentially of all and nothing simultaneously.
