Wiccan love symbols are amazing ancient symbols to attract love into your life but also to be used as a tool for spells and rituals.
I want to share with you the most powerul symbols are and how they work. Let’s begin!
What are Wiccan love symbols?
Wiccan and Pagan symbols are useful for providing a graphic representation for protection, energy, power, divinity, seasons, physical objects, and human frailties and strengths. These Wiccan symbols and other Pagan signs are used in ceremonies, for spells, or in some writings.
How do they work?
A Wiccan love symbol works only if the observer activates its emotional structure. The sun is the sun in every moment of the day, but at the very moment when an individual places his attention on it, he is overwhelmed by an emotion that transforms it into a symbol capable of transforming a certain reality into an emotional reality. If you see it from a brand-new perspective, with an open heart and an open mind you will definitely be able to use its energy and attract what you want in your life.
What can I do with them?
You can use them the same way you use sigils as a way to state to the universe what you want. So, it can be a tool you can use during spell casting and rituals, but also to wear to attract that kind of energy and let the universe send that flow of loving energy your way.
3 most powerful Wiccan love symbols
Also called triskelion or triskellion (from the Greek for “three legs”) it is the best-known Celtic symbol. It embodies the power of the number Three.
It has several meanings and represents:
- The Triple Manifestation of the One God: Strength, Wisdom, and Love, and therefore the three classes of Celtic society which embodied these energies: Warriors, Druids, and Producers.
- The Three Circles of manifestation or existence: Ceugant, the World of the Absolute; Gwynwydd, the Spiritual World of the Hereafter and Abred, the Human or Test World.
- Within Abred, the symbol of the three aspects of the material world: Earth (wild boar), Water (Salmon), and Sky (Dragon), which with their movement all come together in the fourth element, Fire, symbolized by the circle enclosing the triskele.
- The Past, the Present, and the Future actually gathered at the center in a single Great and Eternal Cycle called Continuous Infinite Present, in which everything exists simultaneously. It is thus possible to understand how, during the Samhain feast of November 1st, the Celts could meet their deceased ancestors, but also their unborn descendants.
- The three solar phases in manifestation: sunrise, noon, and sunset.
- In man, his triple manifestation as a body, emotions, feelings/thoughts, and spirit, but also Action, Sentiment, and Thought and the three ages: childhood, maturity, and old age.
- The Goddess in her triple aspect of Virgin, Mother, and Old or Daughter, Mother, and Sister.
- The triple specialization of the goddess Brigit as custodian and dispenser of the Sacred Fire, as protector of poets, blacksmiths, and healers.
- The symbol of the female trinity of the Morrigan-Macha-Boadb battle and the male Ogma-Lugh-Dagda battle.
- The sign on which Patrick will explain the concept of the Christian Trinity (actually an idea of Celtic Christianity) to the Irish, however transforming the triskele into a clover.
Being a sign of eternal forces, of the mother and all her representations, but also being an icon of all the elements in one, it is one of the most powerful Wiccan love symbols.
It’s a source of fertility and wisdom. Depicted as Maiden (crescent moon), Mother (full moon), and Old woman (waning moon).
Since it is nature, the whole nature, in her there is both the Temptress and the Old Woman, the cradle and the grave.
The symbols to honor it are; the cauldron, the cup, the labrys, five-petal flowers, the mirror, necklaces, shells, pearls, silver, emeralds, etc…
The Goddess possesses an obscure role which is evident from nature itself.
During the practices, we have to see the Goddess as something that brings us spiritual relief, hope, and love.
Pentacle (and its variations)
In traditional magic, the pentacle is a conveyor of power, happiness, and love. It is the symbol of that energy capable of dominating elementary powers and attractions.
In esotericism, it represents a star that possesses secret forces that can be used to achieve one’s goals and fulfill wishes.
In occultism and in Freemasonry, it is considered the most powerful method for evoking spirits; it is used in ritual magic and sometimes even in divination.
The star positioned with the tip pointing upwards is considered as the sign of good and an instrument to evoke benevolent spirits.
There are various types of pentacles, more or less elaborate. Some are to be used exclusively for ceremonies, others to be put on the altar, or to be worn.
We witches have the custom of wearing it around the neck as protection and as a symbol; it is mainly made of silver (metal linked to the moon and therefore sacred to the Goddess).
During ceremonies, the priestess traces it in the air with incense, Athame, or even with a wand. This is used for the invocation of the elements; in fact, in the Wicca tradition, in interacting with the elements, one is represented by each tip.
The traditional position of the elements on the Pentacle is as follows:
1) The pentacle, and the circle that encloses it, are two symbols of infinity, as they do not have a starting and ending point; for this reason, they represent the flow of cosmic energy.
But you need to know something about the pentacle, whether you use it as a symbol worn on the neck as a sign of devotion of your faith, or as an instrument on the altar, it is the position in which you put it that makes the difference.
2) If you place it with the tip upwards (spirit) it represents the spirit that controls the matter. If you place it upside down, with the two points upwards (earth and fire), it represents the material that dominates the spirit.
3) If you use it upside down, the Pentacle is NOT a satanic symbol and therefore does not attract negative energies. Overturned it has different energies, suitable for different and more materialistic purposes. Personally, I never use the inverted pentacle and not because I think it is diabolical, but because I prefer to have ‘self’ control over the elements and all that is in my path.
4) In rituals, it is traced at the beginning of the ceremony by addressing the four cardinal points (north, east, west, and south) with an incense stick, with your fingers, or with the Athame to “open the portals” from which the guardians of the elements will come into our circle for protection during the celebration. Remember that when you have finished the ceremony, repeat it to thank them and close the portals.
When you find a heart with a pentacle inside, it’s all about gathering all the elements and the energy towards love. But if the upright pentacle is all about emotions and feelings, the upside-down pentacle is more about the material world, like physical attraction, obsession, sex, and so on.
