Crone: Definition of:

Noun: An old woman who is thin and ugly, a hag.

Middle English, from Old North French carogne, "carrion, cantankerous woman, from Vulgar Latin *carnia, carrion, from Latin car, carn-, flesh; see sker-1 in Indo-European roots.]"
"a witchlike old woman "
[from Old Northern French carogne carrion, ultimately from Latin caro flesh]

"old woman, witch, hag, old bag (derogatory slang), old bat (slang) a toothless old crone sitting in the corner"

Now why would anyone claim to be a crone with all these negative definitions of what a 'crone' is or was? Got me! These days however, the term has evolved in the understandings, or interpretations of what it means for many people. Nowdays, many think that it is an 'older' woman, preferrably a 'wise woman', someone who has tidbits of knowledge and wisdom to share with the youngers. Many consider it a badge of 'attaining eldership' to be called a 'crone'. And why not? Anyone who is a student of language and studies the origins of words will see that languages evolve just as cultures to and change their meanings to fit current times. Why not change this one too into something a little more positive?

Sedna is the sea goddess of the Inuit people. She embodies both the mother and crone aspect of the triple goddess.
Common symbols for Sedna include water, an eye (sees all things in her domain), and fish. She embodies the ideals of thankfulness, providence, nature, and abundance.
She was born a mortal, and later became both the mother of the sea and the keeper of the dead.
