(Aztec Deity)CHALCHIUHTLICUE

Also known as CHALCIHUITLICUE
Tonalli : COATL (snake)
Trecena : ACATL (1 Reed-13 Snake)
Festival days : coming soon ...

Lady Jade Skirt, the Aztec Goddess of youthful beauty represented by a fruit heavy prickly pear tree growing in the middle of a river... for some reason.

Chalchiuhtlicue is the mother of Tecuciztecatl who shared parenting rights with Tlaloc. She is also mentioned as the wife of Xiuhtecuhtli though why a Goddess of water would want to betroth a fire God is a bit of a mystery.

She's big at chilbirth, helping mothers during tricky labour, and is just as popular at the following baptisms as her running water alter-ego Acuecucyoticihuati.

And speaking of water... Chalchiuhtlicue sent great floods to drown the wicked and lazy, but there were so many of them it was easier to destroy the entire fourth world, which is exactly what she did. But it wasn't a dead loss as those who managed to keep their noses clean, so to speak, survived when Chalchiuhtlicue turned them into fish.

She sometimes appears as Matlalcueitl.
