The Goddess is the female aspect of divinity. She is closely associated with the Moon and its cycles. She is the source of fertility, wisdom, and love.
The Goddess is often symbolized as having three aspects, representing the cycles of life: the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone. As the Maiden, the Goddess is the virgin huntress and represents the fullness of youth.
As the Mother, the Goddess is the fertile and nurturing Mother of the harvest. She is, also, the embodiment of sexuality. As the Crone, She is the wise woman of experience. She rules over the unbroken cycle of death and rebirth.
No matter how the Goddess is envisioned, She is eternal.
During ritual, the Goddess is often called upon by reciting the Charge of the Goddess.
