The Prophecy of the Twice-Blessed Children is an ancient prophecy describing the birth of two children holding great magical power and wisdom. If nurtured properly, the children would become saviors of the world; but if they fall under the influence of evil, they will become the world's ultimate destroyers.

The first Twice-Blessed Child, Wyatt Halliwell, died in January of 2032 when he succumbed to fear, however, he was later brought back. This temporary death showed that the collective power of the Twice-Blessed Children is significantly weaker when one dies.

The Prophecy

When three planets burn as one
over a sky of dancing light,
Magic will rest on a holy day
to welcome a twice blessed child.

Continuation of Prophecy

They will think is all done,
but the planets again will burn as one
over a sky of dancing lights,
and magic will rest again
until a second twice blessed child
joins its mate on a holy wiccan day.

History

Arrival

The quatrain describing the prophecy was unearthed by Merrill, a powerful wizard, and mentor of Cronyn. He reasoned that the baby was to be born to Piper Halliwell and Leo Wyatt, a witch and whitelighter respectively.

Merrill knew that the child would be born when magic rested on a holy Wiccan day. His former pupil Cronyn and the demon Doris planned to obtain the child to raise it as evil. On the Wiccan sabbath, Imbolc, which fell on the same day as the Aurora Borealis, Piper went into labor. After the sorcerer and his demons were vanquished, her sisters helped her give birth to Wyatt Halliwell, the first twice-blessed child.

Completing the Prophecy

Six centuries ago, an Apothecary and his daughter who was also his Apprentice, were the ones who first saw the prophecy of the Twice-Blessed Children. When the Apothecary was trapping Doom into a hole in a wall, he predicted the prophecy. His daughter was unaware of what was going on and grabbed her father's hand. That made her intercept the apothecary´s prophecy. She alone saw the second half of the prophecy, which spoke of another child being born as Twice-Blessed:

They will think is all done,
but the planets again will burn as one
over a sky of dancing lights,
and magic will rest again
until a second twice blessed child
joins its mate on a holy wiccan day.

Arrival of the Second Child

Centuries later, Charmed One Phoebe Halliwell and Cupid Coop prepared to welcome their first daughter, Prue Halliwell, to the world. On the day of her birth, magic ceased, the planets aligned, the Aurora Borealis struck again, and magic was only restored when Prue was born. This made Prue Halliwell the second and presumably final Twice-Blessed Child to ever exist.
