In a nutshell, the Maiden was the young, enthusiastic, and full of promise girl. The Mother was a symbol of fertility, sexuality, and stability. And the Sage was typically the guide for the hero or the heroine – she was wise, she helped them find their way home, and she had great vision that the hero or heroine didn’t have.
Can you see yourself in one or more of those stages? Let’s break them down even further.

The Maiden Stage
The Maiden stage, or the child stage, is the earliest stage. If it was personified in a season, it would be spring, where the bloom is just beginning on the plant. The maiden is very curious, very passionate, very much of a risk taker. They don’t conform. Maidens color outside the lines and don’t care what it looks like. They’re very innocent and free-spirited.
The Mother Stage
The Mother stage would be personified as summertime, when the plant is in full bloom. The Mother is a nurturer, a caretaker, and she puts others before herself. She gives up herself for the good of her family. The Mother also recognizes the way she was as a Maiden, when maybe she burned the candle at both ends, and improves herself because of it.
Mothers usually know what their needs are as well. They know they have to be healthy for their families. Mothers are making peace with where they’re at in their lives. There’s maybe a space between the Maiden and the Mother where you are still a little self-conscious, but Mothers are so in tune with themselves.
Because Mothers have likely experienced some pain and difficulties in their lives – watching kids get hurt or make wrong decisions or maybe a parent passing away – they’re navigating through life’s difficulties and living to tell about it. They’re getting wiser than they were as the Maidens.
The Sage Stage
Then there’s the Sage, or old woman, phase. The Sage is personified by fall, when all the blooms are at their brightest and the colors are the most beautiful. The Sage lives in her own style and doesn’t really care about replicating or being a carbon copy of anyone else. She’s perfectly in tune with herself. She’ll wear what she wants without caring about what other people think. She’s very self-possessed and un-self-conscious.
The Sage is comfortable in her own skin. She’s experienced and clear about things. She has less self-doubt. She doesn’t mind being a square peg in a round hole. Here’s the thing that I love about this phase. The sage is beginning to really focus on her inner self, on her soul, on who she was meant to be and what purpose she has.
