The most common knot. Unity and trinity of soul, heart and mind. Three distinct yet interlocked levels: physical, mental and spiritual

Triskelion

Like the trinity, the spiraled triskelion, or triskel, stands for unity of the three, in the case of Celts, this is the physical, mental and spiritual. It also symbolizes the eternal life, the flow of nature and spiritual growth.

Triple Spiral

The triple spiral of life shows the continuity of life, and how it travels in cycles. As with the triskel, the existence of “the three” stands for mind, body, spirit; birth, death, rebirth.

Tuim Knot

An interweaving, diamond-shaped knot that represents the four seasonal lunar holidays and the four elements: earth, air, fire and water.

Wheel of Being

The five-fold pattern, also known as the Wheel of Balance, is made up of four circles united by a fifth circle in the center. The structure stands for four powers or elements balanced by a fifth. The Druidic universe consisted of four Powers united by a fifth Balance.
