:viking As with Runes, Symbols were also very important for magic & emblems for protection, strength and wisdom.

AEGISHJALMAR (Helm of Terror) (1): This Symbol was often carved beside the figures of warriors. It is worn or traced between the brows to cause terror to your foes. The dragon Fafnir wore it while guarding his hoard. Also still used in Icelandic magic of today.

SUN-WHEEL (2): One of the oldest symbols of Northern Europe, representing the power of the sun as the ordering force. The Sun in its daily wagon-round through the sky (raidho).

AETT-RING (3): The ring of the heavens divided by the eight winds; the eight worlds with Midgardhr in the center. Also appears as an eight-pointed star.

SHIP (4): The emblem of passing between the worlds, usually at death. Also of fertility.

FOOTPRINT (5): Fertility symbol associated with the Vanic cult.

SPIRAL (6): Represents the coiling layers of that-which-is. Serpents are often drawn coiled into spirals, and in runic era it became fairly common to carve runes inside the outline of a wyrm (serpent or dragon)

MOON (7): Showing reason and measured change.

VALKNUT (8): The Valknut or knot of the slain is a sign of the Odhinnic cult. Wearing of the Valknut is a sign to Odhinn that one is ready to be taken into the ranks of his chosen warriors at any time he chooses. The symbol displays the interwoven workings of Urdhr-Verdhandi-Skuld (past, present, future) or of Odhinn in his many tripartite forms. Very important symbol and meditation upon it, is well worthwhile.

HAMMER (9): The hammer of Thorr is the greatist of Teutonic symbols for warding and protection. It can be carved, painted, traced anywhere that guarding is necessary. (including over food and drink). Wearing of the hammer is the heathern answer to the Christian cross and is a sign that one has taken up his/her ancestral faith.

TREFOT (10): Much like the Swastika as in showing the whirling might of direction and thrust. Power spinning from and into the three realms of Asgardhr/Migardhr/Hel.

SWASTIKA (11): Also called Sun-wheel or hammer, it is a sign also associated with Thorr as Hallower. A symbol of dynamic might & will..and both doesil & widdershins forms are among the most often-used symbols empowering magical and religious workings. Like the Hammer of Thorr it can also be traced over food/drink to hallow it.

Yes and a very fine book it is too especially when read together with his "Teutonic Religion".
Are there any more plans for more of his work to be published?
