Numerology and Solar Alignments of the Mounds, Near Newark, Ohio

Newark Lizard Mound, Earth Mother and the Mound Builder's Numerology

What has been called the "Alligator mound"  "Lizard Mound" and even the "Opossum mound." purpose is revealed in both the length of the effigy earthwork and it's alignment." The length of the work was 215 feet.

This is the "reptile" mound looking to the southwest.  In the distance the Jacksontown Mound, the Great Stone Mound, the Yost Works, Tippit Mound, would have been visible.  The mound was constructed on an axis of 66 degrees to  the May 1st sunrise and sunset. May 1st is the Solar event where the Earth Mother is venerated.  It would have been  the time when the salamanders in this area would have emerged and a sign of the"life" that is synonymous with spring.

The large henge at the Newark works was also aligned to the Mays 1st sunrise.  The Octagon was aligned to the 18 year cycle of the Moon. With the Lunar and Earth Mother deities being synonymous it is evident the the Newark Works as a whole were constructed to venerate the Lunar and Earth Mother.

In the center of the large henge is this bird effigy that is also aligned to the May 1st sunrise.  The Bird if symbolic of "transition." In  this case the transition from the "death" of winter to the "life" of spring."

This vesica shape also occurs and Mounds State Park in Anderson, Indiana.  The length of the vesica is 215 feet.  In this case the vesica is aligned to the mound in the center of the henge (660 feet in circumference, symbolic of the Babylonian Amorite Gematria number for the male Sun) is aligned to the winter solstice sunrise.  It is on the sunrise of  the winter solstice sunrise on December 21 that the Sun god is born.
