Quaoar 50000

Quaoar is the creation deity of the Tongva Native American people of southern California.

Quaoar danced and sang the universe into existence, beginning with the higher beings (gods). As each force was birthed into being, it joined its song to Quaoar’s, and more complex forms emerged, until the earth was populated with every variety of plant and animal. Little detail has been preserved of his myth, as the Tongva were among the first Native American peoples to be subjugated and Christianized. The name Quaoar was given to a TNO (Trans-Neptunian Object) in the Kuiper Belt region of the solar system, near Pluto.

Astrologically, Quaoar has to do with creativity; access to our internal connection with the divine; and issues of fertility or reproduction, including in vitro fertilization, cloning, contraception and abortion.
