(Aztec Deity)MAYAHUEL

Also known as MAYAHUAL, MAYOUEL
Tonalli : TOCHTLI (Rabbit)
Trecena : MALINALLI (1 Grass - 13 Lizard)
Festival days :

The Goddess of the Maguey plant.

Her first husband was Xochipilli, the lovey dovey God of flowers. I can see the attraction and although her destiny lay not with the Aztec's very own hippy hallucinogens were involved.

Mayahuel stumbled upon a mouse running around in circles that showed absolutely no fear as she approached. It just looked at her, said something he thought so funny he laughed himself right off his feet then fell asleep. On discovering that the mouses crazy antics were possibly linked to the cloudy juice he had been drinking from a nearby fermenting Maguay she got together Patecatl and decided to have a crack herself.
Love blossomed and Pulque was created, amongst other things.

She's often depicted as having many breasts which she needs to feed Centzon Totochtin - her four hundred drunken rabbits, doubtless the results of taste test trial runs of the alcoholic tipple. It's good stuff... apparently.

See Ehecatl for a different take on the Maguay discovery.
