The Triple Goddess, Lunar Symbology and Pagan Witchcraft

The concept of the Triple Goddess with Maiden, Mother and Crone aspects and lunar symbology is associated with modern pagan witchcraft. Many witches and other neo-pagans believe in the “Triple Goddess” of maiden, mother, and crone that originated with the first neo-pagans in mid-twentieth-century England. In their view, sexuality, pregnancy, breastfeeding—and other female reproductive processes—are ways that women may embody the Goddess, making the physical body sacred.

The Maiden represents enchantment, inception, expansion, the promise of new beginnings, birth, youth and youthful enthusiasm, represented by the waxing moon. 
The Mother represents ripeness, fertility, sexuality, fulfillment, stability, power and life represented by the full moon. 
The Crone represents wisdom, repose, death, and endings represented by the waning moon.

Many neo-Pagans and Wiccans believe that women can identify with the deity in ways unachievable by “patriarchal” religions by echoing the normative model of the female life-cycle which is represented by the Triple Goddess. This model is also supposed to encompass a personification of all the characteristics and potential of every woman who has ever existed
