Celtic Horse Triscele: Epona
Throughout ancient times, the horse was the most Sacred and Honored of creatures. Thought to be a bridge between the Material and Spiritual Worlds: the horse represents an intuitive bond between the two realms.
The trust between the rider and horse was considered a Divine Marriage, and it was common to let the horse wander freely, leading the rider to an adventure of Destiny.
The 3 images of the horse symbolize different aspects of belief revered throughout the Celtic tribes...
First is that of the Horse, intelligent and independent. The horse has a mind of its own, and proves this time and time again to those who try to impose their will upon it.
The second horse denotes the human aspect. How one treats and interacts with the horse shows the nature of the individual. This deep bonding often reveals the true character of those in relationship with the horse.
The third symbolizes the horse as Divine Consciousness-a link to "Epona, the Celtic Goddess of all Equines."
Epona translates as 'Divine Horse' and it is said that she and her horses 'lead the soul' to your preordained Destiny and brings Divine Help in hours of need.
