The Arra Sign

Of the three symbols carved, the first is the Sign of our Race from beyond the Stars, and is called ARRA in the tongue of the Scribe who taught it to me, an emissary of the Elder Ones. In the tongue of the eldest city of Babylon, it was UR. It is the Sigil of the Covenant of the Elder Gods, and when they see it, they who gave it to us, they will not forget us. They have sworn!

Spirit of the Skies, Remember! “


ARRA         AGGA     BANDAR

The above passage describes the first of the Three Seals of Masshu. It is called the ARRA and it is said to be the ‘Sign of our Race from beyond the Stars.’ This passage will prove to be of great value later in our discussion, but for now let us look into the history of the ARRA.

It is appropriate to conclude that the ARRA has been known throughout history as the pentagram. The word pentagram derives its origin from the Greek term pentagrammon, a noun form of the word pentagrammos, meaning ‘five lines.’ The symbol of the pentagram is one of the most, if not the most, recognized occult symbols in the world. The pentagram has long been associated with the planet Venus, and the worship of the goddess Venus, or her equivalent. It is also associated with Lucifer, also known as the Morning Star, the bringer of light and knowledge. These associations originated with the Ancient Chaldeans who had an exceptional understanding of astrology. When viewed from Earth, successive inferior conjunctions of Venus plot a nearly perfect pentagram shape around the zodiac every eight years. The first known uses of the pentagram are found in Mesopotamian writings dating to about 3000 BC. The Sumerian pentagrams served as pictograms for the word UB or AR, which meant ‘corner’ or ‘angle.’ It was also known to the ancient peoples of Mesopotamia as the Plough Sign. The Chart of Comparisons, found in the Simon Necronomicon introduction, defines the ARRA symbol as the ‘Plough Sign, the original pentagram, and the sign of the Aryan Race.’ Let us consider each of these three definitions that are given for the ARRA sign to help further our study and understanding of the term.

The ‘Plough’ is often times referred to as the Big Dipper in Europe. Yet the Simon Necronomicon makes reference to the “Plough Sign. “ This would seem to indicate that the Big Dipper makes a certain sign during its movements throughout the year. If one were to observe the Big Dipper and its rotation around the North Star (Polaris), it would appear to form the sign of the Swastika.


The word swastika is of Sanskrit origin meaning ‘to be good.’ Throughout my research and studies I have discovered that this symbol is of eastern origin dating back about 3,000 years. Some of the oldest findings of the swastika are located in the region of the Euphrates- Tigris Valley. Ancient man placed heavy importance upon the rotation of the Big Dipper around Polaris, as well as other astronomical movements to determine the seasons and to mark certain events. The Swastika has also been a symbol of a bigger star from our view here on earth, the Sun. It was actually easier for ancient man, and more reliable, to calculate the Sun’s position, as far as the seasons are concerned, by looking at the position of the Big Dipper in relation to the North Star, Polaris. The importance placed upon this relationship can be seen in ancient philosophies like Taoism.

The Chart of Comparisons in the Necronomicon describes the five pointed star as being the sign of the Aryan Race. When we explore the origin and meaning of the term Aryan, our knowledge of how the science of the Simon Necronomicon works becomes clearer.

The term Aryan is derived from the Sanskrit term arya meaning “noble” or “spiritual.” This term had nothing to do with physical characteristics as it is often misunderstood to represent. The following references are useful in further illustrating this point;

(History of Ethiopia, Vol. I., Preface, by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge.) In addition Budge notes that, “Homer and Herodotus call all the peoples of the Sudan, Egypt, Arabia, Palestine and Western Asia and India Ethiopians.” (Ibid., p. 2.) Herodotus wrote in his celebrated History that both the Western Ethiopians, who lived in Africa, and the Eastern Ethiopians who dwelled in India, were black in complexion, but that the Africans had curly hair, while the Indians were straight-haired.” 

“Before the Chaldean rule in Mesopotamia, there were the empires of the Sumerians, Akkadians, Babylonians and Assyrians. The earliest civilization of Mesopotamia was that of the Sumerians. They are designated in the Assyrio-Babylonian inscriptions as the black-heads or black-faced people, and they are shown on the monuments as beardless and with shaven heads. This easily distinguishes them from the Semitic Babylonians, who are shown with beards and long hair. From the myths and traditions of the Babylonians we learn that their culture came originally from the south. Sir Henry Rawlinson concluded from this and other evidence that the first civilized inhabitants of Sumer and Akkad were immigrants from the African Ethiopia. John D. Baldwin, the American Orientalist, on the other hand, claims that since ancient Arabia was also known as Ethiopia, they could have just as well come from that country. These theories are rejected by Dr. II. R. Hall, of the Dept. Of Egyptian & Assyrian Antiquities of the British Museum, who contends that Mesopotamia was civilized by a migration from India? “The ethnic type of the Sumerians, so strongly marked in their statues and reliefs,” says Dr. Hall, “was as different from those of the races which surrounded them as was their language from those of the Semites, Aryans, or others; they were decidedly Indian in type. The face-type of the average Indian of today is no doubt much the same as that of his Dravidian race ancestors thousands of years ago. … And it is to this Dravidian ethnic type of India that the ancient Sumerian bears most resemblance, so far as we can judge from his monuments. … And it is by no means improbable that the Sumerians were an Indian race which passed, certainly by land, perhaps also by sea, through Persia to the valley of the Two Rivers. It was in the Indian home (perhaps the Indus valley) that we suppose for them that their culture developed. … On the way they left the seeds of their culture in Elam. … There is little doubt that India must have been one of the earliest centers of human civilization, and it seems natural to suppose that the strange un-Semitic, un-Aryan people who came from the East to civilize the West were of Indian origin, especially when we see with our own eyes how very Indian the Sumerians were in type.” (The Ancient History of the Near East, pp. 173–174, London, 1916.)”

Another interesting point to consider is how modern-day scholars try to hide the identity of these people by using images and sculptures from other periods to describe the whole history of Ancient Sumeria. An example of this can be seen by looking at the history of the United States. It has been recorded and well documented that when the Europeans came to America, there were already an existing people here. If we were to describe these people as Americans it would not be an accurate description, since these people did not call themselves American. Now imagine living 3,000 years into the future and you are doing research about the history of America, and the ancient Americans are described as having European features. British relics are discovered along the coast of South Carolina, but the question remains; who were the original people of the Americas? Many scholars would point to them as being British and what we call Native American history today, would be represented by the face of U.S. Presidents. This is the same trick that modern-day scholars use to hide the characteristics of the people who inhabited many ancient lands, Ancient Sumeria included.

Since the people of Ancient Sumeria were similar in physical type, class distinctions were made. Later, invading peoples adopted only the most benevolent terms to describe themselves by, and recreated the gods of these people in their own image.

“The ancient gods of India are shown with Ethiopian crowns on their heads. According to the Old Testament, Moses first met Jehovah during his sojourn among the Midianites, who were an Ethiopian tribe. We learn from Hellenic tradition that Zeus, king of the Grecian gods, so cherished the friendship of the Ethiopians that he traveled to their country twice a year to attend banquets. “All the gods and goddesses of Greece were black,” asserts Sir Godfrey Higgins, “at least this was the case with Jupiter, Baccus, Hercules, Apollo, Ammon. The goddesses Benum, Isis, Hecate, Diana, Juno, Metis, Ceres, Cybele were black.” (Anacalypsis, Vol. I, Book IV, Chap. I.)”

The above quote by Godfry Higgins, concerning some of the Greek gods, illustrates clearly how man has a habit of reproducing what he worships in his own image. It is as if god was created in the image of man. It is apparent that the author of the Necronomicon Spellbook came across this same information:

“THESE SPELLS were originally worked by the mystics of ancient Sumeria, a mysterious civilization that flourished in what is now known as Iraq over two thousand years before the birth of Christ. No one knows who the Sumerians really were, or where they came from. Some say they came from the darkest parts of Africa,” (Necronomicon Spellbook)

The Necronomicon describes the ARRA as a ‘sign of our race from beyond the stars.’ This passage indicates that those who are represented by the ARRA are not only nobles, as we have discussed, but are also of divine lineage. Amongst every culture around the world there exists a legend of gods and goddesses intermarrying with human beings. Often times, the children of these marriages were given favor and privileges over humans who were not of divine parentage. For example, in the Gilgamesh Epics, Gilgamesh is stopped by the Scorpion Man while trying to gain passage through the Mountains of Mashu, as no mortal or those not prepared may enter. However, the Scorpion-man’s wife intervenes noticing that Gilgamesh is no mere mortal, but two-thirds divine and because of such he is allowed to enter.

The Bible also describes humans copulating with divine beings;

“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” (Genesis 6:4) KJV

What is often not observed by Christians in the above biblical passage is that it mentions these Giants existed in those days and ‘after that.’ This would mean then that those who were of divine and human parentage existed before and after the Great Deluge. This is also supported by several Sumerian texts including the Gilgamesh Epics.

It is clear from our discussion that the ARRA is a symbol of those who are from a ‘race beyond the stars’ or divine parentage, or one who is on the path of being pure. Yet it should be kept in mind, as we have already discussed in our Mountain of MASSHU series, the term divine beings or gods, applied to those who were adept in the Tantric Rites. This would mean that the term Aryan, or those of the Aryan race, was a term used to describe those who were initiated into the Tantric Rites, or ones who knew the divine arts. A careful look at the Simon Necronomicon will confirm this.

Earlier in our discussion, it was stated that the pentagram has long been associated with the worship of the Goddess Venus or her equivalent. The Simon Necronomicon equates Venus with INANNA/ISHTAR. On page 24 of the Necronomicon it states: “The Goddess of Venus is the most excellent Queen INANNA, called of the Babylonians ISHTAR.” This would mean then that INANNA/ISHTAR, and those initiated into her Tantric Rites, is symbolized in the Simon Necronomicon as the ARRA, which is a ‘Sign of their Race from beyond the Stars.’ It also states on page 24 of the Simon Necronomicon in reference to INANNA/ISHTAR that she ‘partakes of a subtle astral nature with the Moon God NANNA.’ It speaks about a certain time when the two planetary energies interact causing it ‘to rain the sweet wine of the Gods upon the earth.’ These symbolic metaphors concerning the relationship between INANNA and NANNA are references to Tantric rituals. The ’sweet wine of the Gods can be defined as a nectar. The term nectar is a Latin word for ‘drink of the Gods.’ However, it should be noted that the Latin term nectar is derived from the Greek term, nektar, which is a component of nek (meaning dead, as in necro) and tar meaning ‘overcoming.

Within the introduction of the Simon Necronomicon, under the subtitle, the Horned Moon, it states: “The Moon has an extremely important, indeed indispensable, role in the tantrick sex magick rites that so preoccupied Crowley and the O.T.O.” Earlier, in the same section, when referring to the efforts of Crowley, it states: “The lunar element, as well as, the Venusian, are accessible in his works. So it is no mystery why the rituals in the Simon Necronomicon are encouraged to be done on the full moon!

It cannot be overstated how much the Ancient Tantric Rites have been misunderstood by the uninitiated. It is our culture, our way of life, and an ethnicity all to its own, ‘as INANNA takes her own, for her own.’ The misuse of the term ARYAN by racist bigots over the past century is indeed a recent invention, just like someone using physical characteristics to institute racial classifications. This is a practice that started less than 600 years ago.

  3. Oh goodness, we must return to Chant and Poetry as our first language, the language of love.

    Lets not confuse Satanists with Anti-Christ because the Norse Star or Tara which gives the Word Torah and Tao as the Way, is the Divine Spark at the centre of Man.


    The still point, that allows you to calm the waters and cross the river, climb the mountains and reach Sattva.

    Without the Hocus Pocus or Mumbojumbo, Man was made both Male and Female, Eve being the Spirit who leads Man to the Tree and Serpent.

    You can stay on the Tor with Sat or come back down to earth with the fallen Tara, inside of yourself and know yourself.

  4. I use to own the Necromonicon & the spellbook years ago. I was just browsing, and was trying to remember my astrological sign & meaning. Virgo means SHIRU-Whirlwind. I can’t seem to find more information on that. Could someone give me more information than that?

    1. warlockasylum says:

      why not try searching the term “shiru” with “virgo” on google-books. I plan on writing about each sign shortly 🙂

    The gate symbol for the MOON Nanna gate in the Simon Necro is almost identical to the Moon gate symbol shown in Idries Shas book – Magick. I stumbled across the gate picture rather by accident. I have never found any other symbols of the gates in other books.

    I found info about scorpion man in an early UFO book with a picture rather similar to the cylinder seals of Mesopotamia. Scorpion man seems to be associated with UFOs.

    The sign of the Watcher has been drawn and shown in UFO books, such as Matrix-II which came out in the 1990’s. It was seen by abductees on the upper LHS of the draconians uniform.

    Similar symbolisms to Humwawa’s sigal have been noted by me in books on MU and other early civilizations.

    For more specifics you will have to email me >

  8. Your information is to the letter. I’ve taken bits and pieces from the books I’ve read, valuing it between 10-90% accurate and piecing things together as I remember them to be. You’ve clearly read from more sources then I. I would be very interested to know some of those sources if you care to share as well as your perspective on related topics. Perhaps a list of suggested reading material including anything you yourself have written involving the ancient Sumerian culture and practice?

    I fully understand that some sources seemingly have nothing to do with with the topic until you acknowledge the fact that symbolism and theology have been recycled and reinterpreted of the years. I’m trying to trace back to the origin of the Sumerian culture. I would appreciate your time, knowledge and insight.


    In addition I’d like to ask a few questions on behalf of the person who directed me to this article as they do not have an email address and would be pleased to see their questions responded to through my email as well.

    The albatross would like to know, did someone let you sneak a peak at the Uranchio? Nephromines?
    Does this individual see the rebellion of Lucifer coming to a screeching halt?
    Can you answer what second angel is?

  9. When I sent the last message I failed to realize the wealth of knowledge enclosed in this site. I thought it was just an article. I’m excited to say the least. It’s nice to see historical evidence of the things I’ve always believed to be true before I sought out others of like mind. I wanted to say thank you for sharing!


    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      Thank you. I added your page to the “links” section.

  10. Wow! I’m very new to this tradition, but lastnight I had a dream about these three Elder Signs. Not the symbols but the words. I was in some kind of store and there was a crystal ball with the words “???? AGGA ARRA ARRA ARRA” the question marks mean that I do not remember the first word but I think it was “ANNA” or something like that, definatley started with an A. Anyways, in the unfamiliar store a with said that you had to have the mantra inscribed on a crystal ball for best results, and you had to physicallly touch it for some odd reason. Iam not sure why ARRA was there thrice, in the dream it was because it was a mantra. The witch touched the crystal ball to her teeth (weird) and fortold my future, I can’t remember what she said exactlly but she was all smiles. Then I was woken up by my dad lol. The witch was actually someone I knew in real life, shes my bestfriends girlfriend, which was more weird to me. Any thoughts about this dream?? It’s one of those rare dreams that I actually read words in it.

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      Have you worked with the Simon Necronomicon at all?

  11. By the way, FANTASTIC article. I learn a lot of Necronimcon history on this site 🙂

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      thank you very much!

  12. No, not really, I’ve just been studying it a lot. I recently bought “Gates of the Necronomicon” by simon, its pretty insightfull it clears up some confusion. So I’ve only been studying so far :p so I know what I’m getting into, meanings, history, and what I could experience. I plan on walking the first gate this summer so I’m not freezing during the winter months outside at night lol. No actual practise has been done, but I’ve been practising and studying ancient eastern occult for about two years now. Only recently has the Necronomicon attracted my attention, and I’ve had some weird encounters with various entities and still do. This dream could mean that I’m on the right track to conquering my inner demons, my main and only goal in this universe is eternal happiness.

  13. Very interesting…I am a bit of a novice to all forms of the necronomicon, and not to be haughty, but I am learning quickly. I thank you muchly for these articles and I only wish I had found them sooner…I may have saved a bit of my sanity!!

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      all in due time..they say

  14. Have you ever noticed that in the ‘composite’ symbol of the Necronomicon [ ], both the ARRA and the AGGA combine to create an extra pentagram? Note that there are TWO pentagrams in this picture… one larger (the ARRA sign itself) and one smaller (created by certain combined parts of the ARRA and the AGGA). Pretty interesting, don’t you think? Warm regards from Portugal! 😉

      Amazing! Thanks for posting!

  15. The origin of aryans, written language and the old gods isn’t in mesopotamia, it’s in Europe. The Aryans were living in the balkans and along the north and west of the black sea, the Vinca culture c5600 bce invented the writing that evolved into what we use today, most of it was used by the sumerians 2500 years later then by the akkadians and babylonians after them. It wasn’t until the “Vinca” aryans migrated out of the region into Eurasia that they found what they needed to conquer the world, large numbers of horses thriving on the steppe. They domesticated the horse and invented the chariot, two things that would dominate warfare until alexander the great with these two new toys they extended the range and power of their people, turning them into conquers. The first thing they did was invade mesopotamia then egypt(which was f(@^& all at the time with no pyramids) This was the extent of their first invasion period which lasted from around 3500-3200 bce. They slightly over reached their power and their empire in Mesopotamia(sumeria) was conquered by semites from arabia. Keep in mind there were already people living in all of these areas when they conquered them and they didn’t exterminate them, everywhere they went they installed themselves as the ruling class and spread their religion, mainly the worship of thunder gods. The arrival of the aryans in egypt ushered in the first dynasty(3100 bce) they ruled for thousands of years, but within 100 years they were forced to move their capital further north to memphis with the invasion of blacks from the south. Aryan ruled Egypt lasted from 3100-2200 bce, not oddly enough the rule of aryans ended in egypt in 2200 bce at the same time that the aryan rule in mesopatmia(sumeria) ended with sumeria being conquered by semites. This is when the second aryan invasion begins, 2200 bce but it’s not to reconquer their lost civilizations instead it was to seek new lands and conquer new people in the east. The whole time that aryans ruled sumeria and egypt other groups of aryan tribes were living on the steppes of eurasia, they supplied both colonies with horses and they became the masters of war, when the colonies fell the new states were too much of a threat militarily to even engage since they were on par with them technologically so instead the first thing they did was invade china, their rule in china lasted until Qin Shi huang unified and conquered china for asians in 220bc. the aryan migration into china was ongoing for centuries, see tarim basin mummies, Many Chinese still worship an Aryan god and they don’t even know it, Lei Gong the hammer wielding thunder god that rides a chariot(thor), Set or Seth is what the aryan started calling the thunder god after 1000 years of rule in egypt and language evolution. After the conquest of china they turned south and conquered india and south asia but their old rebellious colonies(Sumeria and Egypt) were still too strong to retake so they just dominated east and south asia for thousands of years, fragmenting and evolving into different factions. Eventually around 550 bce another aryan empire rose up, the Persians. they finally reconquered their ancient colonial lands and even went as far as trying to invade their homeland(south eastern europe) The persian empire was a multiracial, monocultural, and a poly religious empire and it was defeated by a pure aryan army 1/5 their size(alexander and his army). The Aryans didn’t just invade non-white lands though, they invaded west into europe as well to the very corners of europe, Ireland. The arrived in Ireland and establied a great civilization in the north around 3500 bce, the Newgrange megalith was constructed around 3200 bce. The aryan people all carry R1a1a-m420 DNA, that is our haplogroup and every aryan/aran man has it.

    1. Warlock Asylum says:

      @Charlie the Aryans orginate in Europe when theterm aryan comes from the Sanskrit language? There are no petroglyphs an anything to denote that the Sanskrit language was spoken in Europe andis agreed among linguistics that the Sanskrit language derived in India.
