The Serpent god: Quetzalcoatl


Quetzalcoatl was one of several important gods in the Aztec pantheon, along with the gods Tlaloc Tezcatlipoca and Huitzilopochtli. Two other gods represented by the planet Venus are Quetzalcoatl’s ally Tlaloc who is the god of rain and Quetzalcoatl’s twin and psychopomp who is named Xolotl. Animals thought to represent Quetzalcoatl include resplendent quetzals rattlesnakes (coatl meaning serpent in Nahuatl), crows, and macaws. In his form as Ehecatl he is the wind, and is represented by spider monkeys, ducks, and the wind itself. In his form as the morning star, Venus, he is also depicted as a harpy eagle. In Mazatec legends, the astrologer deity Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli, who is also represented by Venus, bears a close relationship with Quetzalcoatl.
