The Triple Goddess

Dreams of Cerridwen

The Triple Goddess

The Welsh triad of goddesses often associated with the the three aspects of the Triple Goddess or White Goddess, are varied from author to author. For me in my practice and follower of the White Goddess the triad goes as this: Blodeuwedd the maiden, Arianrhod the mother and Cerridwen the crone.

Blodeuwedd (flowerface) the maiden aspect of the Welsh Triple Goddess, associated with the earth in bloom, flowers, wisdom, lunar mysteries, and initiations. Often called upon for help with fertility and growth.
She is desire and defiance, vitality and fertility. Honour her in spring to bring abundance and joy into home and garden.

Arianrhod (lady of the silver wheel) the mother aspect of the Welsh Triple Goddess. She has a citadel in the stars (Aurora Borealis), to which souls withdraw to between incarnations, thus she is identified as a Goddess of reincarnation and karma.
She is the mother and protector, healer and justice. Honour her to reveal hidden truths of the heart and soul.

Cerridwen (keeper of the cauldron of knowledge) the crone aspect of the Welsh Triple Goddess. Often associated with witches and magick as well as nature, death, inspiration, astrology, herbs, science, poetry, spells, knowledge.
She is wisdom and inspiration, death and transformation. Honour her when seeking great changes.
