Dig into the Maya myth of the moongoddess, Ix Chel, and follow her story as she falls in— and out of— love with the sun god.
The sun god was in love with the moongoddess, Ix Chel. But the goddess’ grandfather was very possessive, and would not let the sun god anywhere near his beloved granddaughter. Desperate to be together, they escaped and were ready to light up the sky with their powerful rays. Unfortunately, their love story doesn’t end happily ever after. Cynthia Fay Davis details the Maya myth of Ix Chel.
