Within the Shamanic Astrology Paradigm Capricorn, is a culture-bearer sign, that has been
holding the distortions of the Patriarchy. At the Turning of the Ages the essence of Capricorn is
being remembered as Feminine as it is after all an Earth sign. When we engage the Capricorn
Mysteries we are in service to the Circle of Grandmothers, whose mission is to restore a human
culture in harmony with the Earth and the next seven (or several) generations. In 2004, the
Indigenous Council of Thirteen Grandmothers came together for the first time. The Circle of
Grandmothers was brought to life in a literal, embodied way. This is when humanity most needs
Capricorn Grandmother Wisdom fulfilling an ancient prophecy of peace and plenty for all when
the Wisdom of the Grandmothers is again honored and welcomed.
In 2020, The Great Planetary Alignment of Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn is all about
Grandmother and Elder Wisdom. The Circle of Grandmothers are at the helm of this Great
Turning of the Ages, hospicing the Death of the Old Culture and Midwifing the New Earth. By
attuning to our Grandmother Guides and the Grandmother Wisdom residing within each of us,
we will be powerfully guided and strengthened in our work to vision and create new sustainable
structures and culture to replace the dissolving cultures from before.

Earth and the generations to follow?
• Are you calling on the wisdom of your ancestors helping to transform their trauma if there is
any, changing the legacy going forward so that it’s not old patterns of competition – killing off
our competition – killing off our world – killing off anything that feels threatening – whether

The Grandmothers Final Questions
• Are you taking steps to change your perspective on who you are and the gifts you bring to this
• Are you willing to cultivate awareness around the ways you get triggered or hooked into an
emotional response that puts you in survival mode?
• The Grandmothers Remind Us: Awareness is the first step to changing your point of view and
when you change your point of view you change your life.
• When you become aware of fear driving your choices are you willing to make conscious
choices that are sustainable for your life and all those connected to you?
Ask the Grandmothers of loved ones (friends, family tribe) to be with them when they are
experiencing a healing crisis. You might be surprised by who shows up!
The Iroquois Confederacy and the U.S. Destiny:
In 1142 a Total Solar Eclipse swept across Canada and the Northeastern United States.
Soon after, the Iroquois Confederacy was formed.
The Confederacy was formed of five previously warring Nations: the Mohawk, Onandoga,
Oneida, Cayuga, and Seneca.
They were brought together under the counsel of the Peacemaker, who helped them develop the
Great Law of Peace.
In 1987, the United States Senate acknowledged that the Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois
Nations served as a model for the Constitution of the United States. (U.S. S. Con. Res. 76, 2 Dec.
The Iroquois Confederacy and the U.S. Destiny
The Great Law of Peace includes: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right of
women to participate in government, separation of powers, checks and balances within
government. A government “of the people, by the people by the people and for the people,”
I have walked out here on Mother Earth to speak to you about my purpose. Through a series of unintended events I have found myself here on this land praying to you for guidance. I will speak to you of my gratitude for having this day to touch the mother and sink my toes into her grass. I am thankful for each breath of air that fills my lungs, for the taste of the spirit of water in the bounty which has been provided for me on this day. I will give thanks for the fire of the sun and the light in my eyes. I am thankful to be able to feed from the earth’s abundance and so I can be strong and free from dis-ease.
Thank you for giving me the time to move through the phases of the moon until my lessons are learned.
I will stand here at the center of my world and be strong of body, wise of mind of heart. I will build the kingdom, speak the law, know the “Mother” and seek the “Father.”
But mostly I am here to pray. Pray for the enlightenment of the world to create a better understanding of our relationship as stewards of this earth, so we stop exploiting its resources and our brothers and sisters.
I will pray, but I will also sing and dance with joy in celebration of being a part of this creation.
