Triskelion Celtic Meaning
The Celtic triple spiral or triskele symbolism and meaning sometimes called the spiral of life. Discovered in the Newgrange site the spiral (or “tri-spiral”) design is engraved on the stone in front of the entrance and represents one of the most famous Irish Megalithic scribings. The triskelion is an ancient magickal symbol for many a culture. Most consider the symbol as a Celtic design, it actually appeared in Ireland over 2,500 years prior to the arrival of the Celts. There is no definitive explanation about the meaning of the spiral. The symbol has universal significance – it is found throughout history and all over the world.
The Celts viewed the Triskelion meaning is as telling a complex tale of motion, movement, a journey through life in order to reach the spirituality of pure understanding or enlightenment. The Celts believed in three worlds the triskelion meaning is a representation of these three worlds. The Celestial World, the Mortal World, and the Otherworld. In the Celestial World, the sun, moon, wind, and water exist with other unseen physical energies. The mortal world consists of humans, plants, and animals. The Otherworld is the home of the gods, goddesses, and spirits. © psychic medium Ian Scott.
