Aztec Calendar > Gods and deities > Cihuateteo
The Cihuateteo are closely related to the Tzitzimime (like for example the goddess Itzpapalotl), the star daemons that are protectors of midwives and women in labor.
The Cihuapipiltin have special influence on days 1-Calli (House), 1-Mazatl (Deer), 1-Ozomahtli (Monkey), 1-Cuauhtli (Eagle), 1-Quiahuitl (Rain).
On these days, after sunset, the Cihuapipiltin go to the crossroads to steal children and seduce men to commit aldultery.
