Brigid's Knot is named after the Celtic Triple Goddess Brigid. Her name is spelled in many ways; Brighid, Brigit, Bridget, Brigid, and Brid. Brigid was the most beloved Celtic Goddess of her Pagan followers. She was the daughter of "The Dagda" the great father-god of Ireland. In Greek Mythology, the triple-goddess symbolizes maiden, mother and crone, or the three stages of a woman's life. Brigid is called a "Triple-Goddess" because of her three distinct groups of attributes. We celebrate this Goddess on the feast day known as Imbolc. At the beginning of February, we welcome the lengthening days and the coming of Spring. We honor the Goddess and her sacred fire; as Healer, to spark and balance our energies; as muse, to spark our creative processes; as metal smith, to spark the glowing forge which enables our crafts to come to light. Brigid's Knot was created in honor of this Goddess and Saint. It is made up of three trefoil knots, symbolizing three-as-one. The three knots form into a triquetra, or triangle, representing the triple-goddess. The downward-pointing triangle is a symbol of the female yoni, where all of creation begins. Wear Brigid's Knot to Honor the Goddess and bring Positive Energy, Harmony, and Creativity into your Hearth and Home!
