The Celtic Trinity Knot (shown above), or the Triquetra, is one of the most common of the knot ilk. The term Triquetra comes from Latin, and it means "three-cornered." There are many schools of thought when discussing the Celtic trinity knot meaning.
All of the various interpretations agree on a culmination of thee parts.
For example, early Christian understanding views the symbols as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Whereas, a more pagan school of thought sees the trinity knot as the drawing of the three inherent feminine powers: Mother, Crone, and Maiden.
Still another understanding can be found in a more metaphysical arena where the three corners represent mind, body and spirit.
This wide array of interpretations reminds us that the meanings of these engaging knots are not set in stone. As mentioned, the lack of written records on the subject causes us to use our own powers of deduction.
