What is meant by "The Triple Goddess"?

I received a query the other day concerning the deities that many Wiccans acknowledged. A curious individual asked some very good and intriguing questions. Are Wiccans generally monotheists, meaning that they worship the Goddess? If so, what is meant by the Triple Goddess?

Classic Wiccan Verses

Witchcraft ActAs we discussed before, the use of incantations is not a necessary instrument when practicing Magick, though it can hold great value. Aside from the intense level of focus that can be reached through chanting in order to induce an altered state of consciousness, some Wiccans consider the words of these mantras to be a direct prayer to the divine. This is because the chants used are being said by the individual in the physical realm continued until they reach the spiritual realm. Thus, as the individual transcends the worlds, so do their words.

Witchcraft Act Many historical empires have passed laws outlawing the practice of Witchcraft, usually accompanying a gruesome death penalty. The Spanish Inquisition is one of the best known mandates. The Salem Witch trials are a staple of American history. The English Witchcraft Acts of the 16th and 17th Century, though lesser known, are of equal importance in tracing the persecution of followers of the Craft over the ages.

Maintaining an appropriate equilibrium of energy in your body is essential in finding emotional and mental stability. This stability is not only important when Casting or participating in Rituals, but also for your own peace of mind. When you know what to expect from yourself, it facilitates the process of understanding your capabilities, harmonizing with your natural surroundings, and accepting yourself as a necessary part of the Divine’s workings.

The Use of Bells

The Practicing Witch has quite the full closet of tools and materials, with skeletons ideally not included.  Some of these instruments, such as the Essential Oils and black-hilted knife, have great utility, while others hold more of a symbolic value.  Between all of these, the most misunderstood tool is the Bell.

Let alone its significance within the Wiccan Faith, the Bell has great significance in many different cultures and religions.  It is one of the oldest representational and functional apparatus known to human civilization, and even before any true society was formed!  In fact, there has been evidence of man using bells during the Copper Age - over 5,000 years ago!
