Shakti is the Hindu Goddess of Creation and the consort of Shiva. Together, they created the universe and, should they consummate their love a second time, all things will be destroyed and reborn.


Shortly after the birth of Chris, Piper Halliwell and Leo Wyatt went to a Hindu wedding of Christy Peters and Jeevan Anand after being pressured by Phoebe and Paige. At the wedding, shortly after their arrival, two bright lights appeared as the priest called on the gods and the couple was possessed by their essence. Piper suddenly grew four extra arms and became Shakti; the Hindu goddess of creation. Leo was turned into the god Shiva, the god of destruction. Piper used her newfound abilities to take care of her son and defended him from Barbas's minions.

Paige later exorcised the gods from them with a spell in Magic School. This encounter also led Piper — who had initially been overprotective of Chris to the extent that she refused to leave the house with him — to finally take Chris out to brave the world outside the house.

Powers and Abilities[]

As the Goddess Shakti, Piper possessed numerous new powers that enabled her to effortlessly fend off a demon attack directed at her younger son, Chris. She also retained her Wiccan powers, such as molecular combustion, which she used in perfect conjunction with her newfound powers as a goddess.

To Remove Gods from Mortals[]

We call upon the mortal ways,
And Gods who guide but may not stay.
We seek those of divinity,
To separate from and set them free.
