Embracing Your Maiden, Mom, and Crone


The three-fold archetype generally known as the Triple Goddess comes from historical Pagan traditions and embodies the Maiden, Mom, and Crone. These three elements line up with phases of the Moon – waxing crescent, full moon, and the waning crescent, in addition to the three phases of a lady’s life – youth, maturity, and elder years. Whereas we transfer by means of these phases linearly, every side of the Triple Goddess additionally represents qualities in everybody, inside components of us, relevant at totally different occasions in our lives. Right here at SG this yr, we created a Triple Goddess Harvest collection with kits and rituals to honor all three: The Maiden for Lammas, the Mom for Mabon, and the Crone for Samhain. Life phases are stereotyped in numerous methods, particularly right here within the Western world. For instance, the maiden or youth is glamorized, whereas the crone is usually missed or shunned. The reality is, every of those archetypes will be seen as compasses to our cycles – the place we’re and what’s the easiest way to have a good time, honor, and transfer ahead. How can we see the sweetness in all of the phases? On this weblog, Embracing Your Maiden, Mom, and Crone, I’m celebrating all of them.
