Who Are the Wiccan Horned God and Triple Goddess?

By Mackenzie Sage Wright – A Wiccan of 25 years, Sage likes to put her background as a writer and teacher to use by helping people learn about this NeoPagan path

The Horned God and Triple Goddess are generally the deities you’ll hear people associate with Wicca, but these very same concepts generate a lot of confusion. You’ll read a lot of books that will tell you the Horned God is like this, or the Triple Goddess is like that. There are a lot of oversimplifications and generalizations going on with these descriptions. Many Wiccan sources also refer to the Lord and Lady as well, or “The” God, and “The” Goddess (the article “the” implying they’re specific deities). This leaves people to wonder— to whom, exactly, are we referring when we use these terms?

Wicca, being a 20th century religion, is fairly unique in one way: we don’t actually have our own deities. That is, our religion wasn’t built around veneration of any specific deities of our own—we worship Pagan Gods and Goddesses of other ancient cultures in a new and modern world. We do not have our own unique pantheon, nor do we believe our religion was revealed to us by deities.

  1. Lady Beltane,
    I read the entire article from Sage. She does a very good description of Wicca (Even Though my own knowledge is limited).
    An interesting side light is the three Maidens, three Mothers, and the three Crones. I did not know ancient pagans knew. I did not know and still do not know of this. It will be interesting to find out.
    I liked what she said about relationships with the deities. I also liked the thought that everyone believes in finding their own way.
    Brightest Blessings,
    Ocean Star (Steven).
