Tzitzimine is birthing Ixchel as a green serpent. From the ancient mother ancestors, new life is born. Tzitzmitl are ancestor spirits, usually feminine. They are depicted as skeletons and honored on La Dias de Los Muertos, Day of the Dead, November 1. Diving from the sky as star demons, tzitzimitl are connected to spiders, weavers of the web of life.
