Quetzalcoatl – 2012

For Between the Worlds 2012, our patron god was Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Serpent of Mesoamerican culture. He is god of the winds, associated with the dawn (one of his titles is “Lord of the Star of the Dawn”), the planet Venus, and with arts, crafts, and merchants, as well as being the patron god of the sacred priesthood of learning and knowledge. With the significance of 2012 in the Mesoamerican calendar and cycle of worlds, the Between the Worlds community looks to honor the god associated with the (re-)creation of humanity after the change in worlds.
