Pronunciation : Coming soon ...

(Aztec Deity)CHANTICO

Trecena : EHECATL (1 Wind-13 Jaguar)
Festival days : Coming soon...

Goddess of the home and fires - from the domestic hearth to volcanos.

Chantico once ate roasted fish dusted with paprika, but as harmless and delicious as this sounds it is a big no-no on fasting day. Tonacatecuhtli was not amused and 'she who dwells in the house' soon became 'she who was turned into a dog'.

Chantico rules the Ehecatl Tracena - the thirteen days of instability and insecurity when a thunderbolt of chaos strikes the very heart of order. During this time thievery is rife but Chantico is very protective of her treasures and will guard them with unbridled tenacity.

Stories abound of terrible vengeance being wreaked against touchers of her prescious things, even though the red serpant and poisonous cactus spike head-dress combo clearly spells danger... unless your dyslexic.. or desperate or dopy.

Chantico is the female counterpart of Xiuhtecuhtli... it must be a fire thing.
