Last thoughts on the Triple Goddess Symbol

In conclusion i believe the symbol the Triple Goddess was a symbol of the connection women had to the moon and still do to this day. Yes it is a powerful connecting symbol and in particular a powerful symbol for women all around the world. A symbol of there connection to something further than just here on earth, to outside our planet and to what this connection can bring here.. Birth, the cycle, periods (menstral) and many more.. Its a symbol of life in many ways as well.. The cycle of what we all have to abide by..

  1. Old? How old? Where did it come from?

    As far as I know, this was invented in the 20th century. That does not make it less powerful or meaningful a symbol, but our contemporary notions of the Triple Goddess as Maiden, Mother and Crone are not well supported in antiquity. They derive instead from the influential, inspired but ahistoric book by Robert Graves, _The White Goddess_.

    Please be a bit more careful with your information.

  2. So glad to have found your blog. I have recently become the Crone Goddess. In honor of this transition I now have a tattoo of the Triple Goddess symbol in the middle of my chest a few inches above the heart.
    I will visit often and read through your blog. Lots to learn.
    Thank you.
    Blessed be.

  3. Hey… I’m still in the maiden phase… but i will honestly say i do have a connection to the moon… in a strange way lol. But that is not why i am posting… I am a young writer and would love it if you could help me find more information on symbols such as this one. I am always willing and wanting to learn about mythology and symbols and how they are connected in hopes of using the information i gather to form a story about it some day… Will you help me further my knowledge of these symbols?


  4. So, I was curious as to where this particular can be traced back to. Is it of near eastern origin? African/Egyptian? Norwegian/Celtic? I always had a feeling that it was connected to the near east due to the use of crescents, but haven’t been able to confirm. Btw, great blog 🙂

  5. Hey there, I got a triquetra tattoo not long ago for reasons other than what this symbol is suppose to “do”. I went to the local wicca store cause we have some odd stuff going on in my house. So the sales rep was talking to me about wearing one made of silver on a chain for protection, and I told her I had it tattooed on me. She said that wasn’t good enough. I get that I am superstitious & a bit chicken, but I kind of feel like she was just trying to make more money off of me. Don’t symbols in general carry their “mystical properties” despite what their made of be it ink, or silver?
