One of the most prominent aspects of the Wiccan religion is that of the Triple Goddess. Before we venture into the meaning and into the various goddesses who encompass this aspect in full, we must understand that the triple goddess is something that takes place in each of us, male or female, every single day. The Wiccan way is about balance. Every human being, regardless of their gender specification must find balance within themselves to find the enlightenment that they seek. The triple goddess is an aspect that is found within the feminine side of the human being. The triple aspect is broken into the maiden, the mother and the crone. This can also be equated as, research, creation and reflection.
Close your eyes and think only of the forest path before you. Look at the tall trees and the strength of the ages held in each one of them. Feel the breeze dance between the small bushes and witness the little creatures scampering out of sight. This is the Horned God. He is the God of the Wild, The Greenman, The Lord of the Hunt and He belongs to the mystery of the magic that you find within the dense thickets of the forest. He is every tree, every bird, and every animal. He is the forest. He is all earth before we humans began building our skyscrapers and our roads to travel through him in a more convenient way. He still exists, everywhere beneath our feet. He is in the garden, in the air, in the trees along the road, he is in everything wild, everything green, and even in everything dark and rotting. He is the earth itself.
