Etzalcualiztli Tarot Spread~~~The Xiuhpohualli (year count) is divided into 18 metztli/veintena or a period of 20 days. The  20-day period, Etzalcualiztli,comes after Toxcatl. This is the time of "eating (cualli) maize/beans (etzal)". This feasting time occurred during the rainy season when the fields were beginning to ripen and were dedicated to the rain gods, Tlaloc and Chalchiuhtlicue, from the Nahuatl words chalchihuitl, "jade" and "cueitl", "skirt" meaning "Jade her skirt.." Also translated as, "She of the Jade Skirt" or "Lady Precious Skirt." Chalchiuhtlicue is Tlaloc's female counterpart. She is the lady of terrestrial waters, such as streams, rivers, springs, lakes, ground water, standing water and oceans. She served as the ruler and sun during the age of the Fourth Sun, Nahui Atl Tonatiuh (4 Water Sun). It is said she was very loving of the people, but Tezcatlipoca "Lord of Smoke and Mirrors" , jealous of her praise, accused her of faking her love towards people to gain their praises. Devastated by the accusation, Chalchiuhtlicue wept tears of blood for 52 years, drowning the world and turning humans into fish so they could survive.Chalchiuhtlicue is the patroness of navigation, protector of sick children, newborns, and childbirth. She is associated with fertility for both land and the people. She presides over tonalli, Macuilli Coatl (5 snake) and trecena Ce Acatl (1 Reed). She is the sixth of the nine Night Lords.She is commonly depicted wearing an elaborate headdress, a blue-green skirt from which flows streams of water. Sometimes newborn children are shown floating in this water. She has lines on her face and wears a xiuhyacamitl, or a type of nose ornament.
