This may be a stupid question about witch craft, but can you answer it? No HATERZ!

Ok I have done a lot of research and I have not seen the Triquetra any where, however looking for supplie I have. So my question is, is this really a sybol in witch craft? or just charmed memorabilia? If so what does it mean and stand for?

  • It represents the threefold nature of the Goddess: As maiden, mother, and crone. The triquetra symbolizes the three faces of the Goddess, balance of the Mind, Body and Spirit. The circle signifies the ever-turning cycle of life, death & rebirth. The Triquetra is a fantastic way to represent the power of three and celebrate the divine feminine.

  • Meaning of Triquetra - Trinity Knot - Celtic Triangle
    By Gaelyn Larrick

    The triquetra is a three part ancient symbol comprised
    of three interlocked vesica pices, often used to
    represent people or concepts in groups of three. Also
    known as the trinity knot and Celtic triangle, it has
    been found in Celtic art, paganism and also
    has been used in Christianity.

    The triquetra symbol has been found on
    stones, in northern Europe, that date back to before 1,000 AD.
    The triquetra is also found in the Book of
    Kells, an illuminated manuscript that
    was likely created on the Island of Iona (off the
    Scottish coast) around AD 800.

    The triquetra has been found on rune
    stones in Northern Europe and on early Germanic coins.
    It probably had pagan religious meaning and it bears a
    resemblance to the Valknut, a symbol associated with
    Odin.

    For pagans, the Triquetra

  • represents the threefold nature of the Goddess as
    virgin, mother and crone. It also symbolizes life, death,
    and rebirth and the three forces of nature: earth,
    air, and water. The inner three circles represent the
    female element and fertility.

    For Christians, the Triquetra represents the Trinity:
    Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--three persons as one
    God. Its three equal arcs represent equality, its
    continuous line expresses eternity, and the
    interweaving represents indivisibility and unity.

    Recently the triquetra has been seen on the television
    show "Charmed." It was used as a symbol by the
    Halliwell sisters. They mentioned on the series that
    the symbol represents the Power Of Three, and Prue
    later suggests that it represents the three of them
    working together as one.

    This is what I found....might be helpful

  • Christian Symbolism:
    The Triquetra represents the Holy Trinity: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The unbroken circle represents eternity. The interwoven nature of the symbol denotes the indivisibility and equality of the Holy Trinity. It symbolizes that the Holy Spirit is three beings of power, honor, and glory but is indivisibly one God.

    Had to throw this in for the Christian in you. It is found on the New KJV of the bible on the title page and binding.
