Added DiffLines:

* In Maria Turtschaninoff's ''Literature/{{Maresi}}'', the women of the red abbey worship a goddess who has these three aspects. Each aspect is represented by one of the sisters, but not each sister has to be one of these; most have positions that are just job descriptions and do not fall inside this scheme.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' had one of these for the Winter and Summer Courts of fairies -- Each court is ruled by three Queens—Queen Mother (The Queen Who Was), Queen (The Queen Who Is), and Lady (The Queen Who Is To Come) who are also grandmother, mother, and daughter.
** Explicitly pointed out in ''Skin Game'', when the crew encounters two statues of Hecate in the Underworld, displaying the three Queens of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts respectively. It also leads to a CMOF, as Harry does a truly ''[[BadLiar awful]]'' job of [[spoiler: concealing Molly's ascension to Winter Lady from her father when he points out the similarity.]]

daughter. In the short story "Cold Case" it is revealed the titles of Crone, Mother, and Maiden are enforced upon the bearers of the mantles, resulting in [[spoiler:the Lady unable to even come close to having sex with a man out of risk she might become a mother and destroy her mantle as her mantle will override her and violently attack her would-be sexual partner. It is implied the same thing will happen if one tries having sex with the Queen Mother]]. The connection to Hectate herself is pointed out in ''Skin Game'', when the crew encounters two statues of Hecate in the Underworld, displaying the three Queens of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts respectively. It also leads to a CMOF, as Harry does a truly ''[[BadLiar awful]]'' job of [[spoiler: concealing Molly's ascension to Winter Lady from her father when he points out the similarity.]]

* Amethyst, Pearl, and Garnet fit this well in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Amethyst is the youngest of the three and acts the most childest. Pearl, though skinny as a rail, is eccentric in her love for Steven's mother Rose and acts the most motherly towards Steven. Garnet is able to see into the future, and she controls her emotions better than the other two.

* In Literature/TalesOfKolmar, humans worship the Lady Shia, the Goddess called Mother Of Us All who has three aspects. The Old One is associated with the sky and the moon, the Mother with the ground, and the Laughing Girl Of The Waters... well, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. When the Goddess speaks to a character sitting on the ground under a full moon with a stream nearby, said character feels "lines of light" from each aspect, but hears the Goddess as a single entity.

* ''VideoGame/HeroinesQuest'' presents the Norns this way when they pop in to give the heroine advice, hints, and warnings. Urth, who sees the past, appears as an elderly, white-haired woman wrapped in a heavy shawl. Verthandi, who watches the present, manifests as a middle-aged brunette woman wearing lighter but more formal clothing. Skuld, who guards the future, takes the form of a blonde woman in her late teens or early twenties, with flowers in her hair and a light summer dress.[[/folder]]

Sub-trope of PowerTrio and cousin to TheThreeFacesOfEve: The three aspects of a triune goddess or trinity of goddesses appear as sisters. They are the maiden (often [[EveryoneLovesBlondes blonde and beautiful]], and either a [[NaiveEverygirl naive ditz]] or a budding seductress), the matron/mother (often [[ChubbyMamaSkinnyPapa plump]] and rather eccentric, or pregnant) and the crone (often [[DeadpanSnarker sharp-witted, sharp-tongued]], bitter and unsentimental). In terms of a FreudianTrio, the maiden is the Id, the crone is the Superego, and the mother is the Ego. Even though they are the same being, they seem to know and think different things, so they bicker. In fantasy stories, these characters may be exactly what they appear, or they may be a trio of witches or wise women who reflect the aspects of the goddess.
