The Triquetra is an ancient symbol made up of three half circles connecting at the tips. This Celtic symbol is also known as the Celtic trinity knot or Celtic triangle. Its origins have been attributed to the early Celtic people, various pagan groups and later to Christianity. For Pagans, the Triquetra represents the threefold nature of reality in its various forms. The Divine Feminine – maiden, mother and crone; life, death and rebirth, and the three forces of nature represented as water, air and earth. Sometimes, the traditional Triquetra symbol is accompanied by a circle. The circle, in many belief systems, is a symbol of eternity. Whether it is the eternity of God's love or the eternal circle of life itself, the circle adds even more weight to the significance of the Triquetra.
As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery. Its secrets are locked beneath a pearly veil, and with them, our own hidden truths. Only within its reflected light can we begin to understand what it has to teach us.
Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon-an amulet of protection for travellers, a gift for lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy and a path to wisdom. Our ties to the moon are strong. As it waxes and wanes in cyclic perfection, it creates the tides and rhythms of our mother, Earth, and influences our behaviors, emotions and spiritual growth. Moonstone calms and encourages, teaching us the natural rhythms of life. Moonstone has been used in Greek and Roman jewelry for nearly two thousand years, even longer in the Orient. It has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers, and is a traditional wedding gift there. It was a popular choice for jewelers in the Art Nouveau period, and in Europe it was believed to reconcile estranged lovers.
Moonstone is known as the traveller's stone for the protection it affords, especially at night, and because of its uplifting quality of hope it has long been worn as a talisman to enhance the personality.
