The Rokkr Gods and Goddesses
The Rokkr Gods and Goddesses are the 'Darker aspect' gods of Norse Mythology. Though not fully engulfed with darkness,these gods and Goddesses are chaotic in some fields of Norse mytology. Rokkr Practicioners call themselves Rokkatru. In the eyes of an Rokkatru,there is nothing called 'bad' or 'evil' in Rokkr Gods and Goddesses. In fact, Norse Gods and Goddesses should never be categorized into one.
Rokkr is divided into 3 Parts :
Rokkr means twilight . Ragnarok is thus the twilight of the gods, a meaning that is implicit in the German translation Gotterdammerung. In this instance, the twilight represents the fading of the power of the gods of Asgard, as they give way for the return of the older Rkkr pantheon. Although the Rkkr pantheon can be seen as representing the night which overwhelms the sir gods, they are more accurately manifested as the spirits of the twilight itself. It is at twilight that the black body of the night goddess rises into the sky, and the Rkkr, who are astral beings, can be seen, marked out across her form as the stars and constellations .
Rokkr means shadow . Ragnarok is, therefore, the going into the shadow of the gods. Yet again, although the Rkkr can be seen as the darkness that consumes the gods of Asgard, they are more accurately seen as the shadow: causal emanations of the acausal darkness. Only by looking into the shadow, is it possible to glimpse the black enormity of the darkness that is the goddess.
Rokkr means darkness . The darkness that is implicit in the twilight and the shadow. It is only in the darkness of Hela and the Rkkr that we can hope to remove every illusion that surrounds us, and come face to face with the everything that is nothing, and the nothing that is everything.
