SAGE: Companion of the Crone, the Sage has accumulated his wisdom through life experiences and is now at the peak harvest of his life. The Sage has seen his share of battles and these have shaped him. The Sage has been the youth, has raised the next generation of youth, and is now the bastion of wisdom and tradition for the grandchildren that follow. The Sage is elder to his people, holy man, cynic, truth-sayer, mystic, grandfather, and soul-shaker. His very archetypal title, Sage, means ‘wise‘. It should be remembered that wisdom comes with experience whereas knowledge does not need to take such an arduous route. Thus, the Sage has earned his place through action and is far more than a mere man of learning. He is the embodiment of the Masculine Mysteries, experience made manifest and dedicated to the service of family, clan, nation, and world community.

Aspect of the Goddess represented by the old woman. The Hag, the old Goddess. Frequently a death Goddess, usually wise and powerful. Also a woman who has passed menopause. Sometimes the Dark Moon Goddess. Symbolized by the waning moon, the carrion crow, the cauldron, the color black. Her Sabbats are Mabon and Samhain.
In the regular dictionary the definition of crone is an old, withered woman.
Both suggest that a woman becomes a crone when she can no longer bear children.
I've also heard the word crone used to describe a wise woman, the word wise meaning a woman who is knowledgable in healing, child rearing, cooking, gardening and other womanly duties.
So, my question to you is, are you a crone by these definitions?
