In Aztec mythology, a Tzitzimitl is a monstrous deity associated with stars. They were depicted as skeletal female figures wearing skirts often with skull and cross bone designs. The Tzitzimimeh were female deities, and as such related to fertility. They were also associated with the stars and especially the stars that can be seen around the Sun during a solar eclipse. This was interpreted as the Tzitzimimeh attacking the Sun, thus causing the belief that during a solar eclipse, they would descend to the earth and possess men.
