The true meaning behind the ancient Swastika symbol?

As many of you already know, the Swastika symbol is far far older than the Nazi's, and was in use at least 200 BCE. Some you you may even have heard that the Swastika is also called "The Sun Wheel" (or Sun "Cross") suggesting that it has something to do with the seasons, and some may even have heard that the Swastika is an ancient symbol depicting the Four Seasons; Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring - as I did.

Then I came across some ingenious information online showing me how you can use the Big Dipper and the North Star in the night sky to determine the season. When the Four Seasons are projected onto the night sky with the North Star in the Center the Big Dipper forms a Swastika, making the symbol a very simple technique to determine the season visually.

This kind of knowledge would have been very useful in ancient times as they had only nature to guide them in farming and so fourth, and the Swastika would have been one of their calendars.

Funny how Hitler made a good symbol into a bad symbol.

Recuperation doesn't end there: I hear racists use burning crosses, the fed uses the eye on top of a pyramid, & c.

Even words can be twisted that way: their actual meaning being distorted until defence means attack or health means mandatory pharma, or gay means same gender intercourse, and others.

When projected onto the nigt sky these stars looks like the Swastika, a very simple technique in an ancient symbol.

Do we have maybe a pic of the temple wall where this 'star chart' is displayed?

Because the Nazi version is a spinning flail, driving forward, shredding everything in it's path. Based on an ancient symbol that was used (among other things) to denote the Lord of the Harvest or sum such. Its a deep rabbit hole made more vague by the internets millions of possibilities. Including a twisted broken cross, revenge for the cross of World War One, and a play on harvesting millions of lives like the wheat threshers of old…

Captured Nazi Flag

Edit: of course Hitler had his own twisted logic…

Why he chose the swastika

I just came across this somewhere else yesterday somewhere (different source, different picture, but obviously depicting the same thing.) I had known about the more ancient symbolism long before those numnutzes co-opted it, but was never aware of this.

It brought back to mind a question that's been bugging me (and which I haven't yet googled, because I find it weird I haven't learned this through "conventional" means yet) - who "created" the constellations and when? I mean, they're arbitrary "connect-the-dots" of stars in the night sky, and generally aren't obvious as to their depictions - meaning civilizations all over the world didn't just happen to find the same stars blatantly depicting a guy wearing a belt shooting an arrow.

Fully back on topic - I find it interesting that such a simple, useful and obvious connection of the symbol to an ancient identifier of the seasons went (at least relatively) unknown for so long!

ETA: Ok, so I decided to "give in" to The Googles:
Where did the Constellations Come From?

The article summarizes knowns and deductions which point to the Sumerians/Babylonians, around 2000 BC as the likely original source of our constellations, spreading out to Egypt, Greece, Rome, etc., from there.

This is an hypothesis, but one of the better ones I've heard due to its usefulness for the average man and his/her daily life.

Now, I love a good theory. But come on: don't you think that the people in those days weren't smart enough to check out the weather during the day to see what season they were in?

The weather can be deceptive to a farmer, sometimes spring can seem to come early only to be followed by frost, if you sow by a hunch rather than using a calendar to sow your seeds you are more subseptible to changes in temperature and weather conditions.

For example, today a wheet farmer may know that the best overall time to sow his crop is March 15th, it is very difficult to know based on the temperature to know when March 15th is, sometimes you may undershoot and sometimes you may overshoot - thus loosing some or all you crop due to frost, drouth, or something else related to the weather lack of or too much rain.

This does not just apply to farmers, fishermen too rely on rather exact dates to know when to set sail, and hunters when to expect her pray.

Why they tracked where the sun set and rose on the horizon (and the stars).

This may come as a surprise, when you live outdoors for any length of time (my longest stretch was 7 years), one becomes familiar with the sun, planets and moon cycles, when it will rain, the changes in the weather. I remember being able to predict rain by feel, and tell the time by the sun. It became second nature.

Its a 5000 years old religious symbol for some Indian religions. It can be seen

all over the Indian continent.

Birth, life, death and rebirth. The swastika has always meant thus until it was co-opted by the Nazi party.

You are actually spot on, good research.. The Swastika or the sun wheel is a representation of an early seasonal almanac, or in this case, i believe it was for gathering, hunting and fishing.. You could pinpoint to which seasons animals,fish and berries.. Its part of the northern hemisphere and the constellation.. The prime mover..

Our first farmers almanac came with the southern cross, or the cross of Jesus.. Where moses saw it on top of the mountain of Sinai, it gave a farmers almanac of twelve months.. The Twelve apostles, which are the zodiacs, and Jesus in the middle as the Sun.. Only visible on the southern hemisphere, where the also Used the pyramid, the southern cross and a another constellation to actually pinpoint seasons..

yeah, swastika symbol has a lot of history and was not at all the first time around with nazism.

For more information I recommend watching this video. And there are many more videos from this user on youtube, depicting alternative ancient history and going truly all out and show us a hell of a story. But it goes a lot against mainstream sciences, so if you are a fan of it, you will probably not like this.



Swastika symbol apparently was used in "many" cultures all around the globe, for thousands of years...maybe, just maybe it was a religious sign from the ancient past global civilization? some seems to think so.

please watch to find out more, it is very interesting if one is into alternative history stuff...the whole series are great, with many theories and a lot of different bits of evidences all over the world, which points to something, "they" don't want you to know ... : )
