”Quauhtli" (eagle) is an Aztec symbol expressing warlike qualities in those born under this sign, but the sign also means a tendency to plunder and steal.
In the Aztec Empire, the eagle symbolized one of the two elite warrior groups (“eagles”) dedicated to the sun. The sun’s journey from night to day was a representation of an eagle's flight.
As the eagle rises to swoop down on its prey, so does the sun; it rises and then swoops down and finally disappear. The eagle symbolized the largest bird, which was fearless, powerful and brave and so were the bravest men.
