The energy of the Elhaz comes from the underworld, or the uncouscious-that place "below" or "within" that is our doorway to the inner realm...One way to invoke the protection of Elhaz is through the action of a guardian spirit who can serve as a guide and teacher as well as a protector....Elhaz is one of the most generally useful of runes in practical magic.
In Mystery Mark of the New Age, Texe Marrs states that "[a cross] with broken, misshapen, bent, or disfigured horizontal crossbars... symbolizes to occultists a broken and defeated Jesus. The 'peace symbol' is one example. It is an especially wicked symbol that has in the past few decades acquired favored status among many New Agers, liberals, and radicals in the peace movement." Using Marrs's reasoning an Eastern Orthodox cross might be considered Satanic.
Ultimately this interpretation of the peace symbol turns up in books written for police officers. In A Basic Guide to the Occult for Law Enforcement, Herold defines the Peace Symbol as: "Broken Cross: Represents Jesus being crucified upside down. Initiates into Satanism invert the cross and break the arms downward as part of the initiation ceremony (in some covens)." Anderson's Law Enforcement Guide to Occult Related Crime lists "The Cross of Neri [sic]/peace sign." Dubois's Occult Crime describes the "Cross of Nero" as "blasphemy of the Christian God... Also used in the 1960s by counter-culture groups as a peace sign." Lou Sloat's Texas Ritualistic Crime Information Network Occult Crime Manual lists peace symbols in an untitled list of symbols attributed to Satanism. Rimer's Ritual Crime and the Occult: The New Youth Subculture includes the peace symbol in its list of "Satanic Symbols".
THE PEACE SYMBOL UP THERE IS NOT THE PEACE SYMBOL. I didn't have to do the initiation that contained the broken cross because I was born into Witchcraft & it wasn't necessary, & people who have no Christian background do not have to do it. But if a person raised in a Christian church--whether they were Christian or not--wants to join Witchcraft, they would have to take a ceramic cross & turn it upside-down & break the cross bars down, symbolising their rejection of Calvary & the Christian Church.
The peace symbol is equal to the NeroCross. Nero persecuted Christians. He designed an upside down cross in the form of a "V" and crucified Peter on it, head-down. This is according to Nestorius the Syrian, Patriarch of Constantinopel in 428-431 BC. In his works he describes the persecution of Christians by Nero. Since that time the Nero Cross received the name "Sign of the Broken Christian," or "of the Broken Jew," with reference to Peter. Three years after Peter's death the Roman legions marched into Jerusalem, and they had on their banners the Nero Cross as their insignia.
In 1917 the Bolsheviks painted the Nero Cross on the doors of the churches they had closed.
In 1099 the Muslims fought under this symbol against the Crusaders who invaded The Holy Land.
