Easter Island, Makemake & Rapa Nui :: An Astrological Inquiry
Is anyone well-read on Easter Island or related topics? I am working on a delineation of the minor planet Makemake, a trans-Neptunian object in the Kuiper Belt, discovered 2005.
I am working on a delineation of Makemake (discovered by Brown et al in 2005), currently at about 7 Libra. I’ve always found this TNO/Kuiper object difficult to understand. It’s come up prominently in the chart for the solstice.
Notably, Makemake is named for a relatively new cult on Easter Island, that of the “birdman,” which does not begin till the mid-19th century. It’s not directly related to worship of the Moai depicted in those huge statutes for which the island is famous.
Also I am finding no refereces to the origin of the stone the Moai are made of, whether it was local or somehow transported to the extremely remote island (whose nearest neighbor is Pircairn Island, of Mutiny on the Bounty fame).
I am interested in any information that you may have, astrological, ethnographic, historical, and otherwise.
Thanks for your contributions.
