This is because of Venus' retrograde orbital motions make it appear as the morning star and the evening star hearlding the suns rising and setting. So Venus appears 'tethered' to the sun, thus the 'son of the sun'. So was Quetzalcoatl associated with Venus. Ah Kin...he of the sun.
Quetzalcoatl was a post, an office filled by different men once every ten Venus great-cycles. His coming coincides with the helical rising of Venus followed by Mars, Jupiter and Mercury in an alignment called Ca'an, Kan, Chan...homophones in Yucatec...meaning four-sky-serpent. It is also the genius of ancient Mexican geomantic engineering that as well as having horizonal astronomical alignments, the north-south axis of Teotihuacan is skewed so that if extended, it hits the coastline at the Panuco rivermouth.
The Mechica name for the Panuco is Tamoanchan, the mytho-historical landing place of all Quetzalcoatls.
