Quetzalcoatl - Planet: Uranus
Celeste Korsholm <[email protected]>
In Aztec mythology, Quetzalcoatl, meaning "feathered serpent," came from the sky. He taught his people new skills like calendar and pottery making. He discouraged human sacrifice. When later conquering tribes reinstated human sacrifice, he returned to the sky, promising to come again. Centuries later, Montezuma, mistakenly welcomed the Spaniard, Cortez, as the returning god.
As a representative of Uranus on the Planetary Council, Quetzalcoatl works for religious and philosophical change. He influenced religious reformers like Martin Luther and John Knox.
