Ix Chel is the Mayan goddess of the moon and medicine, water and weaving. Called the “Lady of the Rainbow” as well as the “Lady in Red,” she is depicted as a crone pouring out the waters of life. In her more youthful aspect she is shown weaving or sitting in the moon (or both). She’s also the jaguar goddess, and sometimes sports a jaguar pelt or claws. But always she has a snake on her head.
