The triple moon symbol represents the 3 phases of the moon: waxing, full and waning. Some believe that witches would perform different kinds of magic during the different moon phases:
- Waxing: new beginnings, new life, and rejuvenation
- Full moon: the time when magic is at its most potent and powerful
- Waning: a time to do banishing magic and to send things away
The Triskelion has been around since Neolithic times. It has been used and 'claimed' by a variety of groups through history and so has a variety of meanings: from life, death and rebirth to past, present and future. Here at Shire we are using the meaning ‘family’: father, mother and child/ren.
The Goddess represents fertility: new life, healing and the mother of all things. Some believe it represents Eastre or Gaia. The Goddess symbolises all the regenerative, life-giving and creative energies of the universe, so she is associated with Earth, motherhood, love and the household. As the keeper of wisdom, the Goddess is the spirit of both Earth and the Heavens.
