The witch’s’ ladder is a magical tool, used by the ancient sorcerers in England, and currently, it is a common tool for Pagans. Commonly made of natural materials, the witch’s ladder is similar to the Tibetan japamalas and the Catholic rosaries, in the sense that it allows the user to keep track of certain events (prayers, mantras , spells). Unlike the other two spiritual instruments mentioned, the witch’s ladder must be made by its owner for it to be very powerful.

The witch’s ladder is used as a means of connection to the magical world especially for the purpose of sealing spells as well as to knot the wishes made. The charms are knotted or braided with the specific magical intent on the strings. The number of knots and the nature of the enchantments varies according to the desired effect. It can be used as a tool for meditation in which different colors are used according to our intentions.

A Brief History Of The Witch’s Ladder

The first recorded Witch’s Ladder was found in an old demolished house in Wellington. Six brooms, an old armchair and a rope with feathers woven into it were found in the space separating the ceiling of the upper room and it was inaccessible from inside the house. Due to the investigations of local antique dealers, the finding was published by Dr. Abraham Colles for the Folk-Lore magazine in 1887.

Traditionally the witch’s ladder was made with red, black and white thread and nine feathers of different colors. An example of a modern witch’s ladder is a chain of 40 beads or a rope with 40 knots. Sometimes, feathers, bones and other stones are braided into a rope to represent or aid the spells.

How to Make Your Witch’s Ladder

To make a witch ladder, use three threads of different colors that are braided together, the colors depend on the purpose of the spell. The chain or rope can be made from almost any material, but natural fibers such as hair, wool, hemp and cotton are preferred, in which the feathers of birds are tied.

The feathers have magical properties that are determined by their color or the nature of the birds which they are gotten from. To spice up the charge in your witch’s ladder, you can add small pieces of tree bark according to its relationship to your intentions.

For example; you can add:

Birch: for protection, fertility, new beginnings

Almond: for money, business

Hazel: for marriage, reconciliation

Cedar: for longevity

Eucalyptus: for healing

Fig: for strength, fertility

Orange: for love, marriage

Olive: for security, fidelity

Pine: for purification, fortune

Oak: for any kind of wishes

The colors of the feathers will depend on the type of magic you are working on. Examples include:

+ WHITE Feathers symbolize the purification, spirituality, hope, protection, peace and blessings of the Moon.

+ RED Feathers symbolize physical vitality, courage, good fortune and life.

+ BLUE Feathers give mental ability, peace and protection. They also aid psychic consciousness.

+ YELLOW Feathers give joy, mental agility, prosperity and the blessings of the sun.

+ GREEN feathers symbolize money, prosperity, growth, health and fertility.

Mixed green and red feathers affect financial matters.

+ORANGE feathers bring attraction, energy and success.

+ PINK feathers attract love.

+ GRAY feathers symbolize peace and neutrality.

+ BROWN feathers give stability and respect. They also symbolize home and earth.

– Brown feather with black stripes, like the feathers of a pheasant, give a balance between physical and spiritual life.

– Brown feather mixed with white gives the kind of protection that allows one to go unnoticed in the midst of those who would hurt them.

+ BLACK feathers give the mystical wisdom that comes with spiritual initiation.

-Black (or gray) feathers mixed with white give hope, balance and harmony.

-Black mixed with violet means a deep spirituality.

-Black, white and blue, (mixed feathers) bring change.

The “eye” at the end of the feather of the peacock’s tail protects against the “evil eye” and stimulates the inner clairvoyant vision

The Witches Ladder Spell

After you have outlined your intentions, you can pick up some feathers that are related to your intentions. Get three ribbons, each 3 to 9 feet long. Select some other elements such as hair, stones, charms crystal, etc… that you might want to add to your ladder. Choose a number significant to your intention but it shouldn’t be more than 40.

Take some time to meditate on your intention and visualize that your requests have been granted already. Line up your three strands. Tie a knot at the top and make a loop. Envision that this knot ‘binds’ your intent to your charm here, and know that the spell is begun.

Begin weaving the Witches ladder, stopping often to add a feather, twig, charm and a knot.

“With the first knot, the spell I start,

With the second knot, it will be made sure,

With the third knot, I get what I want,

With the fourth knot, the power I keep,

With the fifth knot, I give life to the spell,

With the sixth knot, I affirm that I already have it,

With the seventh knot, It will happen what I ask,

With the eighth knot, the destiny I bind,

With the ninth knot, the spell is done. “

You can recite this traditional song during the process: 

Finishing the witches ladder spells.

While knitting, keep a single amulet to put at the end of your ladder. Add it when you get to the last knot. Some people like to connect the two ends and join them with the last amulet.

At that moment, you can seal the spell by pulling the knot tightly and saying:

” It will be like that!” Or “That will be done!”

Now you can hang your witch ladder somewhere and let your power work. If you are working on a long-term goal, use it to meditate on your intention periodically.

For Beltane spells, you can use this song:

Wandering in the deep of the night

A thousand birds take flight

And our dreams are born

On the wings of change

We are weaving the world tonight.

This is a very simple song that helps to keep you focused while knitting your Witches Ladder but note that you can always use any other song that you prefer. 

If you want to use it for healing purpose, you have to untie and release the elements of the knots in this way;  release the knots one at a time (one per day) for nine consecutive days. Unleash them in the same order in which they were tied. As the knots are released the energy that has been set is released and used for the purpose for which the ladder is made. In the end you can bury or keep the objects (feathers stones, seeds, shells) in a safe place.

Some Suggested Elements to Add to Your Witch’s Ladder include;

•             Hair: You can add your hair (or the hair of the person for whom you are casting the spell) in the fabric. Some strands will work well.

•             Feathers: This is the most traditional element used. If you choose natural feathers, choose bird feathers that align with your intention. For example, pigeons are symbols of peace. The blue jays are associated with greater knowledge, the crows are a symbol of transformation.

•             Stones/Pearls: Crystals, minerals and rocks are excellent if they are small. You can look for a way to tie it to the ladder.

•             Charms: Use jewelry amulets that represent symbols (hearts, peace signs, staves) or animals that are in line with your intention (for example, a rabbit spell for a pregnancy fertility spell or a wolf for protection spells) .

•             Herbs, trees or flowers: simply knit a sprig of fresh or dried herbs on your ladder or use a small twig from an appropriate tree. You can also weave a fresh or dried flower, although they can make your ladder very fragile.

According to Moses Rusden, bees are creatures full of wonders: not completely tame nor absolutely wild, but a bit of both. According to an ancient spiritual tradition, bees were a gift from Venus. The function of Venus is to bring sweetness, union, beauty, harmony, to earthly life. Through the sign of Libra, Venus gives us union with others, and through Taurus, Venus gives us sensuality, flowers and earthly enjoyment.

All the products of bees have always been appreciated for their healing and nutritional virtues since they transmit to us the same energy of Venus.
Bees are a symbol of fertility and teamwork. Its honeycomb has a hexagonal shape which symbolizes the heart. No animal is a better example of the power of a community than the bee.

Each bee in a hive has a specific function that it will perform even if that means giving up its life. The bee connects us with sweetness. They know how to be defensive and work for the common good.

Bees are strongly associated with fertility because they are the element that carries the reproductive pollen from one plant to fertilize another. They are also associated with abundance.

The Bee and Its Habitat

The bee is associated with the number 6, it has six legs, and its abdomen is divided into six segments. The hexagon is the geometric figure in which you can inscribe the six-pointed star, a symbol of the macrocosm, the divine and the spiritual.

The Bees Hive community is perfectly expressed in roles and status. The cells of the hives and their nests are formed from a geometric hexagonal shape considered as a symbol of the sweetness of the heart. All bees from everywhere build their combs in their hives at specific measurement intervals.

Bees see ultraviolet light and can distinguish between polarized and unpolarized light, an ability that man does not possess. Thousands of bees who coexist in their hives are still able to live in an orderly manner which makes it evident that they have a “language” or mutual system of understanding. It is believed that they perform certain dances that reveal in an exact way to their hive companions the kind of flowers they have found, in which direction they are and the distance between their findings and the hive.

The Bee as a Spirit Animal:

When a bee totem appears to you, it evaluates your activities and teaches you how to complete a task. It can also be a very sweet companion who teaches its companion how to put outside his self-desires and focus on contributing to the growth of the community. The bee shares its power with the witch and teaches her to give without expecting anything in return.

The Bee is an animal whose symbolism represents many qualities which include:

  • ·Productivity
  • ·The effectiveness in working as a team
  • ·Organization
  • ·Prosperity
  • ·Concentration

As a powerful spirit animal, the bee shows great wisdom which includes:

·Connection to the Goddess Artemis / Diana.

·Understanding the feminine energy of the warrior.

·Reincarnation.

·Communication with the dead.

·Anticipate future needs.

·Giving without expecting anything in return.

·The ability to give up everything just for the benefit of others.

The bee has played an important role in all traditions. In Eleusis and Ephesus, the priestesses bore the name of bees. The bees occupy an initiatory and liturgical role. We find them drawn on the tombs, as signs of post mortality survival.


The bee is indeed one of the symbols of resurrection. The three months in winter season during which it seems to disappear can be related to the three days period during which the body of Jesus Christ was invisible after his death, before appearing again. In Greek religion, the bee symbolizes the soul descended in the shadows and preparing for the return: it is sometimes identified with Demeter. According to Plato, the bee also symbolizes eloquence, poetry and intelligence.

Dreaming of Bees

In general, dreaming about bees is a good omen, since it represents work and industriousness. Bees traditionally represent immortality, rebirth, and the natural order. Through a connection with a great mother, the hive in dreams usually represents eloquence and openness.


Other interpretations of dreams of bees include:

  • ·Dreaming of bees is a good omen, because it indicates close successes in your work and in all the issues that are being handled. To dream of killing one or more bees implies that you will have several setbacks.
  • ·Dreaming of being bitten by bees suggests that you will suffer damages from someone you trust. Dreaming of eating honey bees insinuate present and future prosperity.
  • ·If surrounded by bees in your dreams, it indicates that you are being surrounded by people of good behavior.
  • ·Dreaming of wasps instead of bees indicates being surrounded by negative people who are planning to hurt you.
  • ·Dreaming of bees on a flower is a symbol of growing love.
  • ·If you see bees in your house but they don’t seem to generate any threat then that is a sign of an incoming good news.
  • ·Dreaming of bees that deposit their honey somewhere in our house is a sign of prosperity, abundance and misfortune for our rivals.
  • ·Dreaming of a queen bee symbolizes our need to feel or be superior in some way. We may be feeling the need to be assisted by others to achieve our goals.
  • ·As a symbol in dreams, bees can represent something that should be feared or avoided.
  • ·To dream that you were bitten by a bee is in many cases a warning signal.
  • ·Being attacked by a swarm of bees indicates that we are creating a situation that can become uncontrollable.
  • ·The hive usually symbolizes an orderly, organized community with the ability to deal with and absorb chaos.

Snakes (Serpentes) or ophidians (Ophidia) are a suborder of Sauropsid (reptiles) diapsids characterized by the absence of legs and the very elongated body. They originated in the Cretaceous period.

Some possess poisonous bites, such as cobras and snakes, which they use to kill their prey before eating them up. Other snakes, such as boas and pythons, kill their prey by constriction. There are about 456 genera and more than 2,900 species that are recognized. It is probably one of the best known and most feared carnivorous reptiles in the world.

Snakes are known for their ability to get rid of their old and new scales every time. This means that it is necessary to leave behind everything that is limiting your spiritual growth.

Those who have the serpent as a Spirit Animal tend to understand that in life, sometimes, it is necessary to leave behind the past and move on stronger than ever. This includes; abandoning bad habits, negative thoughts, harmful attitudes, toxic people, etc…. Everything that does not do us any good, does not deserve to be part of our future project.

The Serpent as a Spirit Animal:

Since the beginning of civilization, the Serpent is widely represented in relation to the earth, water and fertilizing powers. It is the creative force of life, the Kundalini energy. The Serpent as a Spirit Animal teaches all feminine things, holds power and wisdom, and is a good instructor.


The following are the other impacts it makes:

  • -It gives you a natural ability to balance energies (most likely a gifted healer).
  • -It teaches you diplomacy and eloquence in the areas of speech and writing.
  • -It gives you the spirit of intuition.
  • It teaches you to be impulsive, but at the same time, compassionate towards others.

Going Further

The serpent connects the worlds magically, and becomes the symbol of the infinite rebirth. Snakes give us the power to be cunning, to embrace change and continuity. On the other hand, in their wisdom, they stimulate our creative energy, psychic perception, initiatory knowledge, detachment and transmutation, the elemental force of life and the transmutation of energy.

The serpent is a very important totem, and it gives faith to the countless cultures where it is part of myths and legends. This totem has been used by almost all shamans, druids, priests, magicians and sorcerers to travel to the underworlds.

The Serpent as a Spirit Animal teaches us that we are a universal and sacred being that are interconnected. We are part of a microcosm such as a culture or an ecosystem, and also part of a large macrocosm that includes all living beings.

The Serpent as a Spirit Animal takes us back to the birth of the world, to the moment when everything was new and there was great potential for change and progress. It reminds us that we are not so far from our primitive beginnings and it helps us to understand the power that we have to change our own world.

The healing power of the Serpent represents the power of creation, because it encompasses sensuality, psychic energy, alchemy, reproduction and ascent (or immortality).

Prayer To the Spiral Serpent

The snake is usually represented by circles and spirals. The meaning of these symbols is very important. Both are very sacred images in many cultures. The circle itself is a symbolism of several layers, which indicates the soul, the world, the inner world, among many other things. Spirals also show us paths inside or outside, which show that our energy is constantly moving in a spiral.

Below is a prayer to the Spiral Serpent and an introduction to a conversation that must arise from our interior with the deities that surround us.

Always changing, always turning
Always drawing, always opening
Spiral of mystic course
take us to the nucleus.
You tour and you go to infinity
until you get very deep,
Serpent that you change the rite
three times three and here is the center.
We change our old skin
We lose fear and we forget the damage
Serpent, dance the cult dance
While you draw the magic of the circle.

This prayer that invokes the powers and wisdom of the spiral serpent must be performed in conjunction with white magic spells to increase its power and effectiveness.

With your imagination, you should awaken the snake’s power of enchantment as this would serve as a tool to connect to the possibility of discovering the hidden treasures of the snakes. Take advantage of this period to free yourself from your bonds, your attachments and begin to flow in the Magic of Nature and becoming sensitive to the invisible.

As a powerful spirit animal, the bee shows great wisdom which includes:

·Connection to the Goddess Artemis / Diana.

·Understanding the feminine energy of the warrior.

·Reincarnation.

·Communication with the dead.

·Anticipate future needs.

·Giving without expecting anything in return.

·The ability to give up everything just for the benefit of others.

The bee has played an important role in all traditions. In Eleusis and Ephesus, the priestesses bore the name of bees. The bees occupy an initiatory and liturgical role. We find them drawn on the tombs, as signs of post mortality survival.


The bee is indeed one of the symbols of resurrection. The three months in winter season during which it seems to disappear can be related to the three days period during which the body of Jesus Christ was invisible after his death, before appearing again. In Greek religion, the bee symbolizes the soul descended in the shadows and preparing for the return: it is sometimes identified with Demeter. According to Plato, the bee also symbolizes eloquence, poetry and intelligence.

Dreaming of Bees

In general, dreaming about bees is a good omen, since it represents work and industriousness. Bees traditionally represent immortality, rebirth, and the natural order. Through a connection with a great mother, the hive in dreams usually represents eloquence and openness.


Other interpretations of dreams of bees include:

  • ·Dreaming of bees is a good omen, because it indicates close successes in your work and in all the issues that are being handled. To dream of killing one or more bees implies that you will have several setbacks.
  • ·Dreaming of being bitten by bees suggests that you will suffer damages from someone you trust. Dreaming of eating honey bees insinuate present and future prosperity.
  • ·If surrounded by bees in your dreams, it indicates that you are being surrounded by people of good behavior.
  • ·Dreaming of wasps instead of bees indicates being surrounded by negative people who are planning to hurt you.
  • ·Dreaming of bees on a flower is a symbol of growing love.
  • ·If you see bees in your house but they don’t seem to generate any threat then that is a sign of an incoming good news.
  • ·Dreaming of bees that deposit their honey somewhere in our house is a sign of prosperity, abundance and misfortune for our rivals.
  • ·Dreaming of a queen bee symbolizes our need to feel or be superior in some way. We may be feeling the need to be assisted by others to achieve our goals.
  • ·As a symbol in dreams, bees can represent something that should be feared or avoided.
  • ·To dream that you were bitten by a bee is in many cases a warning signal.
  • ·Being attacked by a swarm of bees indicates that we are creating a situation that can become uncontrollable.
  • ·The hive usually symbolizes an orderly, organized community with the ability to deal with and absorb chaos.

The wolf is the symbol of the power of nature (similar to the image of the lion in Africa), which both protects and destroys.  In the Greco-Roman tradition, the Wolf is one of the forms of Zeus, Lykaios to whom sacrifices were made, to put an end to the droughts and natural plagues of any species.

The wolf was also the emblem of the solar god Apollo for his vigilance. In the original Greek, the two terms used for light and the wolf were so close that sometimes they ended up being confused. It has often been said that the wolf is an animal that tends to form packs. Recent investigations carried out in the North American discredit this affirmation. Currently, it is believed that the stories of wolves hunting in packs do not correspond to reality. Apparently, the truth is that wolves generally form groups that are not superior in number to that corresponding to a family.

The Wolf was and remains the symbol of Rome, the symbol of fertility and protection. In Rome, the door of the house of newlyweds is still rubbed with wolf grease to bring happiness.

The eyes are the windows to the soul, and it is through these powerful organs that we perceive the world that surrounds us, obtain the understanding of how they work around us and externalize our deepest emotions and feelings.

The wolf is an animal known to be expressive and communicative. He uses all his sense organs to interact with the world that surrounds it. In nature, the wolf keeps his gaze fixed on his goal.

The Wolf as a Master Guide:

The notion of the wolf as an enraged warrior, relentless and cunning leader, can be said to be associated with the god named Mars. Among the Nordics, there is the history of demigods, men descended from Tyr, who ruled the world as mythical kings, and were considered almost semi divine. These gods were capable of bending the beasts using bare hands, and they were all left-handed ( Tyr was maimed so he could only use his left hand) and dogs and beasts lay submissive at his feet.

One aspect of the proximity between the Indo-European people compared to the Native North Americans is that the wolf symbolizes both protection and destruction. It occupies a place in all the religions of Europe even in the monotheistic, it is respected, revered and feared

Wolves and the Celtic tradition

The Volcae were a confederation of Celtic tribes established in Gaul and along the Danube. Volcae could mean”wolves”. In the Breton Celtic tradition, Bleiz is one of the last druids, who lived like a hermit in the forest with the animals he cared for and surrounded by wolves. The wolf was an animal attribute of God Belen its protector. Bleiz was therefore nicknamed as “the werewolf”.

As a Celtic symbol, the Wolf was considered a source of lunar energy. The fact that the wolves howl to the moon, has given life to stories of werewolves, stories where a man transforms into a wolf during full moon. Actually, the wolves do not howl at the moon, they have to place their heads like that in order to howl. The moon and the wolf are also signs of communication and power.

An alpha wolf is usually the only one that howls to summon its pack for a meeting or to mark its territory. The image of the wild wolf howling at the moon is a powerful symbol especially for those whose animal spirit is a wolf. This image is a reminder of the importance of their personal freedom.

The Wolf as a Spirit Animal:

Even if the wolf is not your spirit animal, you can access its energy through visualization and meditation. The energy of the wolf usually improves family relationships, social gatherings and friendships. As your spirit animal, it helps you to understand difficult times and assists you in overcoming your problems.

If a white wolf appears in meditation, it usually offers protection and help. A black wolf invites you to explore the mysteries, while asking you to remain silent; a brown one reminds you of your duty of protection, both towards others and towards yourself, and advises you to defend your land either literally or metaphorically.

The gray wolf is a warrior. Your message may be that it is time to fight or a warning to leave aggression behind. People who meditate with wolves often develop the ability to notice changes in the environment or energy, be it a positive or a negative change. They trust their intuition, and can perceive deception by listening carefully.  If they do not like what they see, they are more than willing to defend their territory.

WOLF MOON AND ITS ENERGY

The Wolf’s Moon is the Full Moon of January and owes its name to the disturbing howls of these animals during the cold winter nights, which is due to their inability to find food.

It is a special Full Moon that transmits the energy and personality characteristics of the wolf.

The Wolf As a Spirit Animal provides the solution to difficult problems and ensures the stability of the family. He teaches us to take care of each other in order to survive.

The wolf as a spirit animal can also;

Promote courage, dignity and intelligence, Facilitate communication, generosity and loyalty with friends and Foster the ability to resist adversity.

A Wiccan altar, just like the others, refers to a structure, natural or built by man, used in different liturgical rites to present offerings and sacrifices, to the Divinity chosen by the officiant.

The figure of the altar has been used in all the religions of the world, monotheistic and polytheistic, since ancient times. Although every coven has its own primary belief system, the primary rule remains that you can do whatever you want, as long as it does not involve harming someone else.

An altar serves three specific purposes:

1. It helps you to centralize your personal power. Therefore, each element placed in it should have a specific purpose. Do not put anything that is not necessary. When the altar is inactive, you can place decorative items as an act of respect to it. 

2. It can also be used as a work table, just like a master craftsman. As such, it should be large enough to enable you to create your tools and talismans, while in a comfortable position.

3. It allows you to honor the universe and its beliefs, even when you are not physically present.

We would like to look at a simple way to prepare your Wiccan Altar as a beginner.

Tools of a Wiccan Altar

We have some primary tools that are necessary for every altar while other tools are dependent on the worship ceremony being carried out. Generally, the altar is placed on the East cardinal point since that is where the sun rises from but other times, it could be placed on North cardinal point so this variety is dependent on the spell that is being performed.

For example, for some persons, while performing a money spell, the altar is placed at the cardinal point corresponding to the earth element but when performing rituals on promotions, the altar is placed atthe cardinal point that corresponds to the fire element.

Below are some common tools found on a Wiccan altar:

How to Set Up a Basic Altar:

Setting up a basic altar is actually quite simple. Probably later you might want to include some more things to decorate it, but the most important thing is that it is a functional altar created with the aim of helping you achieve your goals.

Think of your altar as a special place, within your “sacred space” where you concentrate, meditate and generate energy for your spells. This sacred space protects you from negative energies and helps you to attract positive energy.

Where to Set Up the Wiccan Altar

You can build your altar indoors or outdoors, depending on your preferences, the weather and the type of spells you are going to perform. It is advisable to have a space inside the home dedicated solely to your rituals and ceremonies, but if you do not have much space you can prepare it in a corner of your room, or keep it in a closet where you can take it out on any occasion.

Some spells require that the altar is set next to a window in the full moon, so it is a good idea to have a temporary altar that you can mount and dismount. Make sure the area is free of clutter and dirt. Having a clean space will help you focus on your spell.

Customize your Wiccan Altar

Above all, your altar must represent who you are and what your beliefs are. This will depend on whether you follow Wicca or other pagan religions. Decorate your altar because it will be a representation of what you are inside. Put things that evoke positive emotions within you as well.

I recommend you follow these steps:

  • Clean the entire room where your altar will be. You can use a house cleaning ritual or simply dissolve sea salt in water and wipe the walls, ceiling, and floor with a clean cloth.
  • Draw your protection circle and it should be at least one and a half meters in diameter around your altar.
  • Before each ritual, you can decorate the altar’s space with tablecloth, candles, images, soft music, etc.

The next step is to cleanse your sacred space, inside the circle. First, consecrate your tools with positive and pure energy of your heart. Or load some water with your energy and then use that water to clean your altar.

Design your altar.

You can use whatever you want for decoration but avoid using excessive synthetic materials. For the altar itself, you can use a small wooden table then place the images of the gods and goddess. You should place the Goddess on the left and God on the right.

Depending on the spells you wish to make, you can customize your wiccan altar with various objects and tools. Choose the colors of candles, statuettes, amulets, incense, stones, herbs and jewelry to align with the energy you are trying to project. After you have set up the altar to be a representation of what you want and what you are trying to achieve, then you can begin to use it.

The world of dreams is a very mysterious place that leaves a person in a confused state especially if the interpretation of the dream is unknown. The people or situations you often dream about could be something more than a deep and unsatisfied desire, just as no dream represents the same thing.

Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung are both great theorists of dreams. According to Freud, emotions buried in the subconscious surface rise to the conscious surface during dreams, and remembering fragments of dreams can help uncover emotions and buried memories.

After investigations, Jung indicated that dreams reveal deep meanings. It can be influenced by personal experiences, desires, culture, religions and history. Below, we shall look at some common interpretation of some dreams.

Black Magic Witch by Raven Rider - 2M ago

The triple moon is a Goddess symbol mentioned in Robert Graves writings. It is commonly mentioned in neopaganism as a symbol that represents the Maiden, Mother, and Crone as the waxing, full, and waning moon.

The Triple goddess is associated with feminine energy, psychic abilities and mystery. This symbol can be seen on the crowns or headpieces worn by High Priestesses. It is a representation of the three stages that a woman goes through.

The goddess is a symbol of fertility, infinite wisdom and love. She is the queen of heaven, of the earth and of the other world, encompassing the three worlds.

The Great Mother expresses the potentials of the bodies, souls, minds and creations of women in a positive way, granting freedom, dignity and power to bond with others without sexual subordination. A spirituality that has given back to women the right to freedom of worship of the goddess without a male religious authority or enlightened guru that defines what women should believe in.

For women, understanding the eternal tradition of the Goddess religion strengthens their connection to their own spiritual essence, no matter what religion they belong to. Finding the Goddess helps women appreciate their own power, abilities, heritage and beauty. The Goddess can teach us to celebrate all the moments of life.

The Maiden

She is the first appearance of the goddess in which she manifests as a young and naïve girl with an exciting appearance. This stage represents childhood and puberty. She is the Goddess of Spring and New Beginnings. She is sometimes called a virgin and is known for her creativity, art, self-expression, self-confidence and strength.

Her colors are soft and clear, pink or lemon yellow and pastel shades. She is invoked for love, beauty, romance, youth, dreams and new projects. Her symbol is the Waxing Moon. Her animals are all wild animals, especially the Deer and the Owl.

Other Goddesses that are related to the Maiden Goddess include: Ishtar, Astarte, Artemis, Blodewedd, Brigid, Venus,  Athena, Flora, Freya, Ostara, Hebe, and many others.

The Mother:

She is the mature aspect of the Goddess, who is motherly, compassionate, and protective of her children. Being a powerful woman in her prime, she represents nutrition, care, love and fertility.

In her human form, she appears as a woman in her mid-thirties and mid-forties.  Her season is in summer and the beginning of autumn when it is harvest season. Her time of the day is midday.

She represents adulthood and parenthood. She is the fullness of life representing the highest point of all cycles and the sustainer of the Universe. The Cauldron and churning pot of regeneration serve as her symbols and she rules the Sabbats of Beltane, Lammas and Litha.

She is associated with green, light purple, red, and royal blue color. She is represented as the Full Moon. Due to her strength, she can be called upon to enhance almost every spell especially protection, healing, guidance, psychic direction and spiritual awakening intentions.

Other mother goddess include: Isis, Hera, Demeter, Gaia, Yemaya, Tara, Kwan Yin etc….

The Crone:

She has the appearance of a witch and that makes her the most feared aspect of the Goddess. She represents death and rebirth. There is no way in which death can be avoided, since all things have a life cycle. At the end of time everything and everyone must die and be recycled. 

The Crone Goddess represents wisdom and she gives advice to the Mother and Maiden Goddess. She is also referred to as the Terrible Mother, the Dark Mother and the Hag. She is a great destroyer who dissolves the old things thus allowing new growth to occur.

In her human form she is approximately 45 years old or more. Her colors include; black, gray, purple, brown and dark blue. She rules over the end of autumn and winter when the leaves fall and the cold floods the earth. Her time of day is midnight and her moon is the Waning Moon.

She can be summoned by those who seek for guidance and wisdom. Her magick is most powerful during the Dark Moon phase. You can summon her for spells involving divorce, rest, retribution, protection, death, harvest, aging, to attain wisdom and for trance work to communicate with the spirit world.
