Has there been talk of aligning it to the moon's position during a specific time of year? i.e. equinox or such?

Nope.  All of the talk has been about getting it to exist at all.

I really hope you can do that. I have always been nervous about arches, but absolutely love them.

I wished I lived closer, I would be right there for this project.

I was recently in New Grange (goole it)
It is solar aligned and the dry stack has been standing for thousands for years. The inside is still bone dry so if you get it to exist it will likely exist for human scale forever

When ya get to the big stuff, 1,000 pounds up. Just add me to the resource list. Built many adventure golfs on the "hill" caves, retaining walls and waterfalls. Natural stone not gunite. Up to 12 ton, (bout the size of a vw beetle).

Here's how far the project got, which is a good base to finish up on.
