COYOLXAUHQUI (pronounced coh-yohl-SHAU-kee) is the Aztec Goddess of the moon and the Milky Way. Her name means "golden bells", and she is the eldest daughter of the earth Goddess Coatlicue. When Coatlicue was impregnated by a magical ball of feathers, Coyolxauhqui rounded up her 400 siblings, the Centzonuitznaua (Gods of the southern stars), and led them in an attack on their mother. Just as Coyolxauhqui was about to decapitate her mother, her son Huitzilopochtli sprang from his mother's womb, fully armed. He slew all 400 of the star Gods and cut off the head of Coyolxauhqui, throwing it into the sky where it became the moon.
