"XOCHIMILCO" IS THE AZTEC GODDESS OF LOVE, FLOWERS AND DANCE; HER NAME MEANS "FLOWER FEATHER". SHE RULES OVER PLEASURE AND BEAUTY, BUT MAINLY SHE IS ASSOCIATED WITH LOVE. SHE WAS ORIGINALLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE MOON. "XOCHIMILCO" IS THE PATRONESS OF ARTISANS, PROSTITUTES, PREGNANT WOMEN AND BIRTH. SHE IS THE TWIN SISTER OF THE FLOWER PRINCE, "XOCHIPILLI," AND SOMETIMES MENTIONED AS THE WIFE OF THE RAIN GOD, "TLALOC."

SHE WAS EXALTED IN "TENOCHTITLAN" AND "TETZCOCO," AND THROUGHOUT THE VALLEY OF MEXICO. THE POWERFUL CITY OF "XOCHIMILCO", IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE BASIN, WAS DEVOTED TO HER CULT, AND THE "GARDENS OF XOCHIMILCO", SOUTH OF "CIUDAD DE MEXICO," ARE NAMED AFTER HER.

EVERY EIGHT YEARS A FEAST WAS HELD IN HER HONOR IN WHICH THE CELEBRANTS WORE ANIMAL AND FLOWERS MASKS.
