•The Triple Goddess•
Triple Goddess, the original Trinity, portrays the three faces of the great
goddess. This motif is found throughout the world in such varied
places as India, Ireland, Greece, Norway, and Mexico. The Triple
Goddess is intimately associated with the changing phases of the moon and
reflects the complexity and different roles of the great goddess.
Her three faces are typically said to be virgin, mother, and crone:
virgin representing the strong, self-defined goddess; mother representing
her nurturing aspect; and crone representing the death goddess in her underworld
guise. This symbolism embraces the role of the goddess in all phases
of existence from birth through death to rebirth. This figure reminds
us of our sacredness no matter what our age or function in life.
Ever changing, the goddess is always the same.•
