Whether we consider ourselves earth-spirited, forest dwellers, or simply a romantic-at-heart, many things come to mind when we think of the moon.
It might be magick, love, or deities like Selene and Baba Yaga.
But, depending on the moon’s phase, we might also imagine the Triple Goddess. This sacred archetype represents the hidden power of the matriarchy and the Divine Feminine aspect of the psyche.
Within the Triple Goddess, we find the Maiden, Mother, and Crone. Much has been written about these enchanting ladies, so we’ll spare you the details. The most important thing to keep in mind is that each one is unique, but together they represent a person’s journey from childhood to old age, and beyond. The Triple Goddess shares lessons about birth, growth, and death, and reminds us that the answers we seek await in the waxing, full, and waning phases of the moon.
