Who Is Goddess Chantico?

Chantico is Goddess of pleasure and suffering in Aztec mythology. 

Chantico, the goddess of the hearth, home, and volcanoes, bestows prosperity and stability to the household. 

She is in charge of material wealth and valuables, as well as safeguarding the house from theft and loss. 

Chantico symbolizes the duality of life, the earth, and humans; she bears the balance of happiness and sadness, pleasure and suffering. 

Her femininity and sensuous qualities, as well as her links to pleasure and suffering, have led to her adoration by people who engage BDSM sexual practices. 

Her name means "She Who Dwells in the House," and she is portrayed with a crown of cactus spikes and crimson serpents.
