Symbolism: Triquetra


I’ve had people ask for the meanings of various symbols, and this one has come up a lot, since I like to feature triquetras in my work. The specific meaning of the triquetra depends on who you ask. Courtesy of Witch, some specific examples are below, though you may certainly use it to represent whatever it means to you.

“The power of three!


mind, body, soul (spirit)
maiden, mother, crone
past, present, future
thought, feeling, emotion
Father, Son, Holy Ghost
creation, preservation, destruction
earth, air, water – three forces of nature
life, death, rebirth”
