Occult - Black Sun (occult symbol) - Netflix
The Black Sun (German Schwarze Sonne), also referred to as the Sonnenrad (German for “Sun Wheel”), is a symbol of esoteric and occult significance. Its ancient design is also found on a sun wheel mosaic incorporated into a floor of Wewelsburg Castle during the Nazi era. Although it may be used in modern occult currents of Germanic neopaganism and in Irminenschaft or Armanenschaft-inspired esotericism, it has also been adopted in various forms by Neo-Nazi, alt-right or other modern political groups. Despite its current use, the Black Sun had not been identified with the ornament in Wewelsburg before 1991, although it had been discussed as an esoteric concept in neo-Nazi circles since the 1950s.

The term Black Sun may originate with the mystical “Central Sun” in Helena Blavatsky's Theosophy. This invisible or burnt out Sun (Karl Maria Wiligut's Santur in Nazi mysticism) symbolizes an opposing force or pole. Emil Rüdiger, of Rudolf John Gorslebens Edda-Gesellschaft (Edda Society), claimed that a fight between the new and the old Suns was decided 330,000 years ago (Karl Maria Wiligut dates this 280,000 years ago), and that Santur had been the source of power of the Hyperboreans. The Wewelsburg symbol can be deconstructed into three swastikas: a “rising”, a “zenith” & a “setting” one. The design is popular among German Neo-Nazis as a replacement for the outlawed singular swastika symbol. Another interpretation is that the symbol incorporates twelve reversed “Sig runes” of the Armanen runes. Allegedly, the design was drawn for Heinrich Himmler from an “old Aryan emblem”, and was meant to mimic the Round table of Arthurian legend with each spoke of the sun wheel representing one “knight” or Officer of the “inner” SS. The symbol of the Black Sun is purported to unite the three most important symbols of Nazi ideology: the sun wheel, the swastika, and the stylized victory rune; and that it is symbolic in its form representing “the twelve SS Knights of The Order of the Death's Head and their three retainers”. Erich Halik was the first to link the esoteric SS with the Black Sun roundel insignia carried by German aircraft in the polar region at the close of World War II.
