Essentially, the idea of the Triple Goddess suggests the three dominant stages of female life as the Maiden, just coming into womanhood in the years immediately after puberty; the Mother, the nurturing, caring, and sexually fertile woman; and the Crone, the postmenopausal elder who embodies the wisdom of the community. The Maiden is the adventurous youth who leaps over obstacles, the fresh mind with a new perspective, and the sexually vital object of young men's desire. The mother is the woman in full adulthood who gives life, nurtures it, and molds it. She is powerful and protective of her own. The crone is the experienced wise woman, full of love tempered by understanding.
Among the most popular triads used within the Wiccan movement is that of Persephone (maiden), Demeter (Mother), and Hecate (Crone), but rituals and music move broadly across world mythology to call the names of different deities. Several volumes catalog the Goddess's manifestations worldwide. As the idea of the Triple Goddess has spread through the very decentralized Wiccan movement, it has provided comfortable roles for the various female members, each of whom may choose a particular Goddess with whom to interact at any given period of her life.
