(TRIPLE GODDESS MOON)
The Triple Goddess Moon represents the Maiden, Mother, and Crone as the waxing, full, and waning moon. It is also associated with feminine energy, mystery and psychic abilities. Both men and women have this feminine energy within them. Jung coined the term Anima for men or soul aspect. For women the masculine or sun energy was termed Animus/Soul. To have both these energies in harmony leads to a sense of wholeness within one’s life.

The Maiden bursts forth with her stirring energy and initiatory impulse to begin new cycles.
The Mother looks after, protects, and nourishes that which has been created.
