The triquetra is used in many different regions and beliefs around the world: Christianity, magic, witchcraft, wicca, and the occult in general. It can be interpreted as Infinite (in all three dimensions) or Eternity.
The symbol, which originated in Celtic culture, represented the three faces of the great mother (Virgin, Mother and Elder), the creative energy of the universe. It was commonly seen on stones, war armor and helmets because it has a huge protective poweras a connection between the physical, mental, and spiritual levels. It also represented some other trinities, such as the seasons of the year, which were divided into three phases (spring, summer and winter); the three kingdoms (earth, sea and sky); the three forces of nature (earth, fire and water).
The circle, in the middle of the symbol, represents the perfection and precision.
In Christianity, it also came to be used as a representation of Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
