Haumea    -     goddess of fertility

Astrology: Haumea is of subtle but "powerful" influence. Of course, she's about birthing but not so much about children per se but what or how we manifest the "re-birth" of a new consciousness or in other words, something "newly learned", on whatever level.... To "birth" or grow something we need clarity of "vision" and mind and of course self-esteem, security and reliance to name some...  She's "standing by", supportive and of mid-wife energy.

Mythology:  Haumea is the Hawaiian goddess of fertility and childbirth. She did function as a guiding midwife. She's said to grow old and renew her life and so had many children herself who became important deities themselves, so she created a genetic line. An interesting aspect to include here is, that according M.W. Beckworth that her name comes from "hanaumea", which means "sacred birth". 


Some Astronomy:  Haumea  (minor-planet designation 136108 Haumea) is a dwarf planet located beyond Neptune's orbit. It was discovered in 2004 by a team headed by Mike Brown of Caltech at the Palomar Observatory in the United States and independently in 2005 by a team headed by José Luis Ortiz Moreno at the Sierra Nevada Observatory in Spain, though the latter claim has been contested. Haumea's elongated shape together with its rapid rotation, rings, and high albedo (from a surface of crystalline water ice), are thought to be the consequences of a giant collision, which left Haumea the largest member of. 

Haumea got two known moons, Hiʻiaka and Namaka

Haumea has an orbital period of 284 years and inclination of 28 degrees. It was thought Haumea to be in a 7:12 resonance with Neptune but that's as of 2020 questioned again.  (Ref. Wikipedia)   


Haumea's and Makemake's orbits are connected and they might be in a "special relationship".
