FYI: Jerrel Anderson's essay "Mounds Below: Stars Above." []

"My inclination, after much thinking, is that the eight interior mounds in the squares and octagons could have represented the stars of a constellation. A major constellation possessing eight stars is Orion – a large and very prominent constellation visible in the winter sky (Figure 2). This constellation figured prominently in many past civilizations’ legends and religions. The great Egyptian pyramids at Giza are aligned identically to that of the three bright stars in the center of Orion and the three great pyramids at Teotihuacan in Mexico are also aligned exactly that way."
