Endless Connection in Celtic Triquetra ~ Sterling Silver Jewelry Dangling Earrings TE128
Little is known about the triquetra before the Christian era depicted with a circle interlocking the triangular shape. Of Latin origin, the word “Triquetrus” emphasizes “three-cornered” or “triangular,” and is seen as a continuous knot symbolizing an eternal spiritual life with no beginning and end, the same way that there is no beginning and no end to the cycle of life.
For the pagans who respected the nature and saw the hands of their gods in all things, the Three represents God, Goddess, and Man; the three realms, Heaven, Hell and Earth; and the world around us in Sky, Land and Sea. As a prominent symbol in the Wiccan circles, too, the triquetra is interpreted as the three aspects of the female, Mother, Maiden, and Crone integrating the phases of the moon.
