One of my favourite symbols is the triskell. A triskell is a design made up of three spirals, or triple spirals. The spirals have different meanings in different traditions:

  • In the Goddess tradition, the triple spirals represent the three stages of womanhood: maiden, mother and crone.
  • The Celts saw the journey of birth, death and rebirth in the changing directions of the spirals.
  • In Christian tradition, the triskell represented the holy trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
