Triquetra

Triquetra ouroboros leggings just listed 🌿🐍These leggings are printed and designed by me. They feature the celtic triquetra intertwined with the ourobors. The triquetra can have many meanings for different beliefs. In the metaphysical world, each point is seen as the mind, body, and spirit. Where as in the pagan realm, each corner is seen as Mother, Crone, and Maiden. Christianity is seen as Father, Son, Holy Spirit….and so on. The ouroboros represents wholeness and the continuation of life/energy. As always, the design is fully original and printed/drawn by me. #sovrin #celtic #celticknot #trinity #triquetra #ouroboros #occultfashion #occult #leggings #witchyfashion #witch #snake #serpent #medievalfashion #medieval #viking #vikingfashion

Celtic Trinity Symbol and Triquetra Meaning

The Celtic symbol for trinity has a myriad of symbolic meaning.

We see the trinity motif in Celtic knots, as well as in symbol-form like the triquetra and triskelion (a.ka. triskele or fylfot)

To the ancient Celtic mind, it may also signify the lunar or solar phases. This conclusion is made as we see the trinity/triquetra motif alongside other solar and lunar symbols in ancient remants and archeological digs.

Validating this theory, we know the Celts honored the Great Mother, a lunar goddess who was actually three personifications in one (three lunar phases and faces of the goddess).

Some three-pronged Celtic meanings for the triquetra (trinity) symbol include:

  • Spirit, Mind, Body
  • Father, Son, Holy Ghost
  • Mother, Father, Child
  • Past, Present, Future
  • Power, Intellect, Love
  • Creator, Destroyer, Sustainer
  • Creation, Preservation, Destruction
  • Thought, Feeling, Emotion
  • Mother, Maiden, Crone
  • Other world, Mortal world, Celestial world

The Celtic symbol for trinity may also pertain to the three Bridgits. Bridgit is one powerful goddess (aspect of Danu), who embodies three aspects which are:

  • Art
  • Healing
  • Metalsmithing

The circle often seen around the triquetra signifies the infinite and eternity. It also represents protection. Circles are often drawn around Celtic knots to represent spiritual unity with the devine - a connection that shall cannot be broken.

The Triquetra is a Celtic symbol, but is currently becoming more popular among Witches.

It has three petals, each of which is a Vesica Piscis - an ancient yonic symbol for the Goddess. When used as a Wicca symbol it generally connotes the Triple Goddess, or the three levels of being - body, mind, and spirit.
