Triquetra (Triqueta, Trinity Knot)

The triquetra (sometimes, triqueta) is a tripartate symbol composed of three interlocked vesica pisces, marking the intersection of three circles. It is most commonly a symbol of the Holy Trinity (Father, son, Holy spirit) used by the Celtic Christian Church, sometimes stylized as three interlaced fish:


The triqueta symbol predates Christianity and was likely a Celtic symbol of the Goddess, and in the North, a symbol of the god Odin. Although it is often asserted that the triquetra is a symbol of a tripartite goddess, no such goddess has been identified with the symbol. Similar symbols do occur in some Norse and Celtic goddess imagery, but most likely represents the divisions of the animal kingdom and the three domains of earth mentioned above.

Triplicities were common symbols in Celtic myth and legend, one of the possible reasons Christian beliefs were so easily adopted by the Celtic people. The triqueta makes an ideal Christian symbol. It is a perfect representation of the concept of “three in one” in Christian trinity beliefs, and incorporates another popular Christian symbol, the fish, in its original form of the vesica pisces. It is sometimes enclosed within a circle to emphasize the unity aspect.


In Wiccan and Neopagan belief, the triqueta symbolizes the triple aspected goddess (maid, mother, and crone). Some Christians have protested this “appropriation” of the symbol…however, ironically enough, the original Christian fish symbol was derived from an early symbol of venus, one representing female generative organs- making the triquetra perfectly appropriate symbol for a Goddess revival. The triquetra is also considered to represent the triplicities of mind, body, and soul, as well as the three domains of earth according to Celtic mythology- earth, sea, and sky.


The triquetra also appears on the television series Charmed, probably as a less threatening alternative to the pentacle (the preferred emblem of witches real and imaginary). In the show, it represents the “power of three, acting as one,” which in turn represents the three sisters.Evangelical tract writers and conspiracy theorists like to label the triquetra a ‘satanic’ symbol, claiming it is a ‘stylized’ 666, an allusion to the ‘number of the beast’ in the Book of Revelation. This, however, is simply wishful thinking. The triquetra of interlaced fishes is one of the very earliest of Christian symbols, predating the crucifix by hundreds of years. The purported ‘satanic’ meaning of the symbol is a modern evangelical interpolation.

I have a triqueta in gold and a purple one tattoo on my arm surrounded by 3 women..i believe in them

NortherNPractioneR March 31, 2018 at 1:30 am

The triquetra can be used for many different purposes. Due to its various uses/meanings, it can be interpreted in a variety of different ways (pending on your individual beliefs and faith). I am a practicing druid of 16 years and have seen this symbol used for both good and evil purposes, monotheistic and polytheistic faiths, protective wards and harmful spells, a symbol with the intention to preserve life and well being and also a symbol with the intent to cause unparalleled destruction…
It is so universal that it has become controversial to a fault. Regardless of your religion, I believe we can all agree that this symbol has power. I use this symbol mostly for protective wards myself but have seen it used in correspondence with ancient Celtic runes as well as in conjunction with elder futhark engraved standing stones.
I have 3 triquetras tattooed on my body, all with different colors and meanings of intention and have no reason to believe that they are not doing what I intended them for. One has the enclosing circle, and the other two do not. I also wear a silver triquetra amulet on a silver chain, a triquetra signet ring inlayed with silver and carnelian, as well as wristbands I have blessed myself with various symbols upon them including the triquetra. Wearing the triquetra and having them “engraved” into you in my opinion do have differences but only pending on what you intend them to do.
In my experience, I find that the triquetra and the Awen make excellent partners as well (again the focus on the power of three is undeniable).
I find that their is also power in other numbers and related symbols such as 5, 7 and 9. But none have the same “feel” of power as the power of 3.
I believe the meaning of the triquetra will be up for debate forever, but each individual triquetra can only be truly interpreted by the one who creates it and their intent.

I hv just received a triqueta locket gifted by one of my friend… just wnt to knw that is it good or bad

tdoggydogg September 13, 2016 at 2:50 pm

its a good thing. someone gifting this to you means they feel very affectionate for you.

Anonymous October 21, 2016 at 5:01 am

All good. There are many meanings, but I like the “I will Love, I will Honour, I will Protect” variant- not necessarily for a spouse, it can be equally applied to a family/clan member, good friend etc.

Angela June 2, 2017 at 9:30 pm

Like all Celtic knots the triquetra is constructed of one continuous line interweaving around itself symbolizing no beginning or end, an eternal spiritual life.
The Celts favored the idea that everything important in the world came in threes; three stages of life, three elements, three domains; earth, sea and sky, past, present and future. The triquetra is sometimes drawn weaving around a circle, symbolizing the unity of the three parts.

richard February 14, 2016 at 1:49 pm

I have just discovered this symbol drawn into the concrete in my house. I only discovered it when I pulled the wall down to refurbish the property.

Is it good or bad? Should I cover it over?

I’m guessing who ever built this house 70 years ago marked it into the wall as a sign of protection or sign of the beast?

Jennifer February 18, 2016 at 1:36 pm

Probably the former, I wouldn’t worry.

Christy August 6, 2016 at 11:09 pm

Sign of the Trinity. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. It’s good.

Aase October 17, 2016 at 8:02 am

I realize this is a tad late, but as a Wiccan I would contest that the symbol, predating Christianity, is a symbol of the Triple Goddess: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. Whomever put this onto your wall was trying to protect or bless your house. It is a very good thing! I would leave it, they must have had a very good reason for putting it up.

Shandor April 24, 2017 at 10:17 pm

It’s always amusing to read moderns’ very specific beliefs about ancient cultures which didn’t leave any, or hardly any, details about their traditions! This is the case with Druid and Celtic cultures, which in spite of their total silence, are the darlings of persons looking for any excuse to ignore the Creator and our accountability to him for blessing us with life. It’s so much more honest to say “Here I am, Lord, teach me thy statutes!”

Hi there,

I purchased a Pentacle pendant on ebay from a Witch, but received a Triqueta pendant instead.. Is there any significance? is this misfortune? should I return it?

Nina Galy February 15, 2015 at 11:08 am

This isn’t misfortune I promise. Sometimes witches give away things such as pendants and stones that we no longer need, to pass on the energy and keep the cycle going. Maybe you should ask her if she meant to send it. If so, accept if as the universe giving the presence of the goddess to you;-). It sucks that you spent your money, BUT if you bless the triqueta, nothing but good will come from it=]

TL May 15, 2015 at 6:34 am

This symbol is oftentimes known as a symbol of protection amongst us “witches”. Why you would have received a triquetra instead of a pentacle is beyond me, and I hope you contacted the seller to see why the mistake was made. There is nothing wrong with this symbol however. :)

tomcmore November 9, 2014 at 9:38 am

The Bible bans any object representing God no matter how many so called Christian groups accept them.
Deu 4:23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.
Act 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
Act 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
This would also include the so called pictures of Jesus, the first of which at least had him with short hair but were not truly of him.

Mary December 9, 2016 at 1:10 pm

The Bible also talks about God killing and destroying. We cannot take the whole Bible literally. Plus… it is a compilation of writings from different authors and did you ever wonder how King Constantine decided to choose which texts to include and which to throw out?? That was the first ever Bible … and how to interpret the language? … and each author’s style?…. I am bilingual and there is much to interpreting words to another language, plus the customs of the times must be taken into account for interpretation of those words. Like imagine future humans interpreting f–k, “bad,” dis, cray, graffitti, conspiracy theory, pizzagate, whitegate, the wall, facebook, landline, : ), 911… LOL… I already feel sorry for them.

if you look at the 666 you will find that we are 2 octave below god if you tune to nature your crown chakra is 216 hz. if you can enlighten yourself you will reach the 432 hz. frequency. now follow this 6 electrons 6 protons 6 neutrons all to make carbon. as we are all carbon based. 6x6x6=36×6=216 hz. god is 864 hz. it is all about frequency this reality is all just a illusion that our 5 senses bring to our brain or consciousness. tune in turn on and turn your eyes within. for all change starts within. peace in.

I recently got the triquetra tattoo done. I am not a Christian, I am a Hindu but i was still inspired by it. My name means daughter of the moon, which is also another reason why i got the triquetra! I am proud of it!!

Anderson May 15, 2016 at 4:16 am

What if that is the mark of the beast and you can’t be saved with it?

Julie August 5, 2016 at 2:41 am

One of the meanings of the triquetra symbol is creation, preservation, and destruction, which immediately made me think of the three main Hindu gods: Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. I think it is quite appropriate for a Hindu (anyone really because there are so many different meanings behind the symbol) to get the triquetra or identify with it. I find it interesting the connections we can find across belief systems.

Hi my son Jessy is a sgt in the Army Rangers and is getting ready for a second tour in Iraq . we have lost touch for many years but have found each other again after a family tragedy . He’s only 35. And I’m very worried i might lose him like my mother her son my brother and i watch her ddied a little everyday. i don’t ewant to be like that. i have other kids. i want a protection symbol with hid name threw it on the inside of my left wrist. does anyone havee any suggestions? I hve to make up my mind by 4th of july when my best friends bf comez over w his tattoo gun. please help me.

Nina Galy February 15, 2015 at 11:14 am

Sounds like you need a distance protection spell…not a symbol. So if I were you, I might set your sons protection in motion by first emitting that energy from yourself. You have to first know, and believe that he will be in tip top care. Then visualize it, close your eyes in a quiet place, then light 3 white candles around a photo of your son. You may want to place a piece of quartz over the photo to enhance the strength of the energy that you are directing toward him. ask God, [goddess, universe, guardian angels, and elements of the earth] to protect him and banish any harm that comes his way. focus on that UNTIL YOU BELIEVE It 100%. Then blow out the candles and be content. Hope that doesn’t freak you out, but you can do so much for your son by sending that intent out through your energy!

Pollen August 3, 2015 at 9:29 pm

Tattoo could work fine by linking the tattoo to him which it sounds like she wanted to do. Some people make craft far more complicated than it has to be, it’s really all about what works for you, what feels right to you. Telling people about your spell could harm or aid it, if someone you tell doesn’t believe their disbelief could interfere and affect it same with if they 100% believe you and are on your side etc. So be careful where you post and who you speak to about your craft.

chloe merlo June 17, 2014 at 10:53 pm

I’m wanting to get a tattoo, with this symbol or a symbol representing protection embedded into the design I have already created myself, purely do to past experiences that I wish to ward off. and I have been studying paganism and Wicca so far this year for my year 12 art project in depicting these religions in light rather than the stereotype. but Is there any suggestions? this will also help my further study for those who may understand these relgions and concepts/symbols more than I do asi obviously am not very experienced. a tattoo is for life so I want to do it right

Angelique June 24, 2014 at 9:49 pm

Chloe, feel free to wear it proudly, anywhere you wish. I have two on me, back and wrist. My friend has one as well.

For me it is the law of three, the three points, and also I add three rings and three knots, as a wristband. Everything returns times three. Christianity saw it as the golden rule.

It will be what you wish it to be, perhaps for only you to see? I’ve also been told it brings good luck, and also works like a saftey charm, but remember, you only get back what you put into it. :)

Max Chamberlain November 12, 2016 at 1:06 pm

My brother had this tattoo. After his death he was cremated with no tombstone, so i decided to get it as a remberance of my brother. What meaning could this have ?

Reese Miguel May 30, 2014 at 7:05 am

Hi,I have a triquetra on my right hand,what does it mean?I don’t know what is the meaning of this cause my mother won’t tell me,I’m still twelve-years-old,just told you my age so you won’t ask and this is the honest true,please tell me if you know something about this,please.

wordforward August 18, 2014 at 8:49 pm

Hi Miguel,
The triquetra is sometimes used by Christians as a symbol of the trinity. That is the Father God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Symbols have no power but God does. Stick with Him and you will be fine.

Reese Miguel November 19, 2015 at 4:40 am

Okay. Thank you, Sir/ Ma’am. I will.

Brian December 3, 2014 at 9:15 pm

Hi Reese, if you’re only 12, and if you have a triqueta tattoo, that you didn’t put there (I assume your mother or family member did?), and your mother won’t tell you what it means, that is VERY suspect. Continue to ask them what your parents beliefs are and see if you can find any books on religion, etc. in your home. Does your mother have any odd behaviors or rituals that she does that she also won’t explain to you? As wordforward said, what matters is what you believe. Pray to God the Father, and say “In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast away all evil from my presence. Leave my home, my mother, etc.” Pray regularly and ask God to continue protect you from all evil. Then continue to learn more about Jesus Christ and read the Bible online. God bless, Brian

Great symbol with deep meanings. One of my favorites. Not sure why people feel the need to regurgitate quotes from their little book of myths (aka the bible), but hey symbology is all about tickling the imagination too now isn’t it?

Tiffany May 15, 2013 at 3:56 pm

Hey there, I got a triquetra tattoo not long ago for reasons other than what this symbol is suppose to “do”. I went to the local wicca store cause we have some odd stuff going on in my house. So the sales rep was talking to me about wearing one made of silver on a chain for protection, and I told her I had it tattooed on me. She said that wasn’t good enough. I get that I am superstitious & a bit chicken, but I kind of feel like she was just trying to make more money off of me. Don’t symbols in general carry their “mystical properties” despite what their made of be it ink, or silver?

Alex July 23, 2013 at 5:46 pm

Stylized in ink can have the same protection properties, but it is just ink. Many metals have warding powers over things that go bump in the night. Metals with those properties include silver and iron as popular choices. A silver triquetra would offer more protection, but i would suggest iron since its a cheaper, and more powerful/older metal.

Charles Cramer August 8, 2013 at 7:10 pm

I believe that if the tat was from your heart, and ment for good, then it is a special part of you, and carries more power,you are superstitious, try not to be, you should give nothing power, don’t like cross your fingers and such, have faith and believe, that’s where the power comes from. don’t give antrhing power but your own mind and faith. may the great goddess bless you.

Lora August 16, 2013 at 12:50 pm

Symbols are meaningful as a badge of belonging and means of identifying someone who may have common interest. They can also have personal meaning to the wearer and although they could be used as a protective talisman, there are many methods to shield yourself which don’t involve expenditure. Frankly the saleswoman was simply trying to make a sale and was talking out of her rear end.

Amber August 19, 2013 at 1:16 pm

Silver and gold are used very often for protection. So a silver necklace in the shape of the triquetra would be much more protective than a tattoo :)

Tristin September 7, 2013 at 7:16 pm

Tiffany symbols and pendants only have power if you believe in them. Their power comes from the power that you give it, if you believe in your tattoo it will help you and you won’t need a pendant but if you feel an additional protection you can get the necklace. I have a pentacle tattooed on my wrist and so I don’t wear a pendant anymore because I know my tattoo protects me. All the best to you! -BB

Richard September 22, 2013 at 1:39 pm

I live in Thailand – most men have tattoos and also wear amulets. The tattoos are by far considered more powerful (they must be done in the original way though for real power – not using modern tattoo machines, but bamboo or wooden needles and ink, punctured by hand, often done my Buddhist monks here, although it is an Animist practice, it remains a large part of life here – this is because the monks will chant and bless the tattoos as they are made). Tattoos are in the skin – there is no way of it being closer – positioning can be important too though. However, one must also think that metals themselves, like any other natural substance, carry their own energies and protections (especially iron and silver).

greg November 7, 2013 at 12:48 pm

Mery Meet Tiffany,

Since the “true” meaning of this symbol may have quite possibly been lost to antiquity don’t fret about what it is supposed to “do”…or not do for that matter. Let it “do” for you what you feel in your heart,soul,gut,whatever the case may be what it was meant to “do” for you…whatever that may be!…thats the beauty of it! This symbol has touched you in some way for some reason so as it is good to research and learn about the symbol itself don’t forget to just let it “do” it’s thing. All of that being said I would like to mention that as far as FACTS concerning this symbol we DO know it pre-dates christianity and is NOT a christian symbol.

Brightest Blessings to You!

When I was watching charmed I found the Triquetra and I was immediately drawn to it and I already new it meant Trinity so it was perfect. Then when is came to familiars I had a hamster and I have a cat called Scoresby when Scoresby is around my magic energy feels stronger than ever he ran away a year ago but he recently came back after I cast a spell the night before St Patricks Day and he came back the next day.

Trevor August 30, 2012 at 9:11 am

This article is mostly right, except where it concerns Christianity. Evangelicals and conspiracy believers truly do label the triquetra as a satanic symbol, saying it is a stylized and veiled 666, an allusion to the number of the beast in the Book of Revelation. No other symbol in common use can be made by rearranging three 6′s, like the triquetra can.

It’s true that some Roman Catholics, during their early convert-and-conquer sprees, used the triquetra as a symbol of the trinity in an attempt to get more converts. The Roman Catholic church has always bent over backwards to heed the desires of pagans who won’t convert. These actions are remarkably anti-Christian, and no action of the Roman Catholic church should ever be construed as actions taken by true Christians. Roman Catholics don’t read the Bible, they read their catechisms. The bible was outlawed by Roman Catholics, so they’re clearly NOT true Christians. The differences between the two religions is brought to light in the documentary A Lamp in the Dark : The Untold History of the Bible, available on YouTube. True Christians do not use physical symbolism of any kind. I will prove this with the Holy Bible, which is the final authority for all true followers of Jesus Christ.

Exodus 20:4 (Part of the Ten Commandments) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Acts 17:22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Please, do not be deceived by those who call themselves followers of Christ and walk not in the light, as He is in the light. True Christians don’t use symbols for our God, for He has made it completely and utterly forbidden.

Richard September 22, 2013 at 1:23 pm

The number of the beast is actually 616, not 666. It was a miss-translation when Constantine had the bible built from the old testament books (some of) and the gospels – it was most likely an transliteration issue from Hebrew and Latin (and the number related to Nero – he being the beats!). The earliest found copies of Revelations (St John) states 616 – later copies state 666 (most likely due to the triangle number and the synergy with the opposite 888). That all relates to the first beats – the mark on the second beast – whose number will not be revealed until the end of days. Theologians are still arguing about it and always will I guess.

What is with quoting bible? A lot of the so cald “christian” symbols were taken from paganism. The “christians” used the original pagan symbols to make it easier to convert pagans, therefore nullifying what they were trying to do in the first place. If a person is converted through deception is it true conversion anyway?!

Jennifer November 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm

I’ve seen this asserted fairly often, but there is no documentary evidence of such a practice. Also, there was no unified ‘pagan’ religion, but numerous religions with their own specific symbols. What you have here is not any deliberate deception, but people relating concepts they were already familiar with. Many Irish Celts converted to Christianity because they were easily able to relate to certain concepts in Christianity, and because Christianity also offered concepts of spiritual equality and opportunities for learning (Christian monasteries offered books and education to peasants and the wealthy alike) that were at the time forbidden to certain classes. There was no ‘trickery’ involved.

Genie O'Shaughnessy August 1, 2016 at 9:12 pm

You are sadly mistaken about the Catholic faith. Catholics do indeed read the bible. Who are you to suggest otherwise. The Bible rests on every Alter at every Catholic Mass. The Readings from both the Old Testament and The New Testament are proclaimed at every Mass. This is called The Liturgy Of The Word.

The Liturgy Of The Word is as follows:

The First Reading – The Hebrew Scriptures
The Responsorial Psalm
The Second Reading- The Christian Scriptures (also referred to as the Epistle
The Gospel – Alleluia (Praise God). As the Priest introduces Gospels (while holding the Holy Bible high in the air while the choir and community (believers) acclaim the good news with “Alleluia”. At this time all Catholics make the sign of the cross on their forehead, their lips and their heart -”Christ from my thoughts”, “Christ from my lips”, “Christ in my heart”.
The Gospel Reading- This is the Gospel of the Lord. The climax of the Liturgy Of The Word.

The Catechism is simply a summary of teachings or instructions of the official teachings of Catholic faith. These teachings are biblically based.

How sad that you would slander and be so untruthful about the oldest Christian Church established by Christ himself. Christians do not judge other people. You claim to know all about Christians (who is and who isn’t); yet this is based on your judgement and not fact.

The Bible warns that “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man” (Psalm 118:8). Thus, let the Word of God rather explains: “Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device” (Acts 17:29). You see, this symbol thus is of the occult because it is impossible to represent the Godhead through graven by art and man’s device!!!!

Richard September 22, 2013 at 1:31 pm

And who is suggesting that “God” is being represented by any amulet? And why do Christians wear gold crosses and St Christopher’s? And why quote a book put together by a non-Christian (until his very death bed) Roman emperor as a way to try an reunite his people? Quote the original text from which the bible is built – that pre date it by millennia – before it was “Romanised” (e.g. “give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” ) and include the books that were left out because they didn’t fit with the Roman ideal – look to Ethiopia as the head of the church and not Rome (it is the oldest Christian country in the world).

Hi,I was wondering what the first symbol was under the related symbols, I don’t know if they are random, but it has the crescent moon looking things, one is facing to the right one to the left and one facing up, I would like to know because I dreamed of this symbol on red spiders. Please let me know! Blessed Be!

Well, I’ve not tried it, but it is an equilateral triangle drawn with curved sides. The sum of inside angles of a triangle is always 180 – so each inside angle of a triquetra would probably be 60 degrees. I’m guessing if you drew a point and a vertical line through it, you could use a protractor to draw the curved lines that are 60 degrees out from the point you drew (the top point) and find the bottom right point and finally the bottom left point. I’m going to have to try this to see if it works.

Yes!Draw a football shape and then times that by three or you could us something to measure it before you draw it so it won’t turn out bad.
