Bear Hex sign gift from a Powwow friend
Before this time i was only familiar with the two radically different forms of PA German Hexerei practiced here in the Appalachians – the traditional form, and the “new age” form made up by a local coven and a group in Philly. This site is refreshing in that Hunter is connecting with and practicing the pre-Christian form of Hexerei which incorporates runic magicks, the use of herbal entheogens, traditional and newer forms of hex sign painting and art forms, Hoodoo, and even sex magick.
Please especially look through the section of Essays which includes titles such as “Six Questions to Six Heathen Hexologists and their Six Hexes”, “The Reanimation of Germanic Tribalism in PA Deitsch Hexology”, “Berks County Eight Pointed Star and Black Sun (Schwarz Sonne)”, “Magic Plants Used Symbolically in Germanic Heathen Hexology” and other interesting articles. And the graphics throughout, which are copyrighted so i will not reproduce them here but only my own humble works and collections. Enjoy!
