The Triple Spiral is an old pagan symbol representing Earth, Sea and Sky. The triple spiral represents a few things for me – from the macro spiral form of our galaxy also reflected in the micro growth patterns of living forms, the Fibonacci Spiral, to Biodynamic theory of cosmic forces to the three rings found within the flower of life symbol that represent the Tripod of Life .

“The Triskele or Triple Spiral is a complex Celtic symbol – the triple spiral or triskele is also referred to as a triskelion is one of the most convoluted to decipher as symbolists believe it is reflective of many areas.

Firstly the triskele can be thought as to represent motions, as all three arms are position to make it appear as if it is moving, and movement or motion is believe to signify energies, in particular within this Celtic Symbol the motion of action, cycles,  progress, revolution and competition.

Secondly and the more challenging area for symbolists is the exact symbolic significance of the three arms of the triskele, which can differ dependent on the era, culture, mythology and history, which is why there are so many variations as to what these three extensions in the trickle symbol mean.

Some of these connotations include: life-death-rebirth, spirit-mind-body, mother-father-child, past-present-future, power-intellect-love and creation-preservation-destruction to name but a few.

It’s thought that through the combination of these two areas we gain one meaning of the Celtic triskele, which it is believed represents a tale of forward motion to reach understanding. However this is thought not to be the only meaning, as it is also believed to represent three Celtic worlds; the spiritual world, the present world, the celestial world.”

“The power of three is universal and is the tripartide nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. Three is birth, life, death. It is the beginning, middle and end. Three is a complete cycle unto itself. It is past, present, future.
