Coatlicue the Mexican mother of gods
Have you ever wondered what Mexican Aztecs used to believe in?
As it turns out Aztecs believes in many gods and goddesses, but one one the most important ones was Coatlicue “The Mother of Gods”. Also known as the mother of the moon, the stars, and the god of war Huitzilopochtli. Coatlicue has had many names over the years, but perhaps the most known is the lady of the skirt of snakes.
The myth of Coatlicue
depicts her as a devoted priestess whose job was to maintain the pick of the Snake Mountain. One day as she was cleaning this mountain pick, her fate changed drastically. A ball of feathers fell from the sky only to hit her in her belt, and from that moment she was impregnated with Huitzilopochtli the god of war.
Some Mexicans today believe that the Virgen de Guadalupe “Virgin Mary” is a representation of Coatlicue.
