Here is a brief excerpt
Sacred Earth – A Novel by Michael Conneely. A novel of Utopian Community, Protest Site and Stone Circle Protest.
From 1998 I completed a five-year Field Study – a social anthropology of spiritual forms new to the modern West, including Utopian Community.
In this novel I am honoured to portray the ideals and struggles, the earth spirituality path of those who would treat lightly on the earth, live in connection to the Earth’s heart beat and rhythm, and protect the ancient sacred sites.

I drew an Ogham Few this morning – and got Hazel.
I took this to be major and fortunate and to mean ‘Inspiration’.
I feel this is a major ‘step out time’ for me now.
I have been working very long hours mostly on Vedic Astrology for some months, but last week I had a Rune Reading which started with Tir which means Victory, and yesterday I recorded an access document for my Rune Course to make visionary contact with the Norse Goddess Freya and a drumming journey to meet Her, and these ‘broke the dam’.
So drawing Hazel this morning confirms I am inspired to now bring through into the form realm my next novel which I have been researching for months.
As a final step of preparation which I will make concurrent to doing the first pieces of writing of the novel, I shall start with composing access guides to the Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Irish such as the Dagdha, the Morrigan, Dian Cecht and Airmid, and doing drumming journeys to meet each of them.
Another big part of the preparation for the novel has each of them.
Another big part of the preparation for the novel has been reading Marion Dowd’s wonderful new book: The Archaelology of Caves in Ireland, a fascinating un-put-downable glimpse into the world of the Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age Irish people (the Medieval section next). For some reason it has totally gripped me to read Marion Dowd’s learned, elegant and very human writing of their material culture, their treatment of their dead and their use of caves as entries to the spirit realms.
So now my novel comes into form.
The novel is about going back in time the world of the Tuatha de Danaan, and it has now finally taken shape in my mind.
Details of this inspired worldwide distance learning course which includes possibility for visionary contact with the Gods and Goddess of the Tuatha de Danaan appear on these websites:
In the Heavens now is a Yod.
A Yod chart aspect shape is a ‘Finger of God’.
It is when two planets are sextile each other (at 60 degrees) and each of them is in a quincunx angle (150 degrees) to the third planet at the apex of the Yod triangle. You can see this Yod embodied in the chart for today, below. And to the left is a diagram of the Yod chart aspect shape.
The energy created by a Yod is to give great importance to the apex planet – but it does create a situation where the person finds it quite difficult to actually apprehend the energy and meaning of the apex planet directly.
As with any Yod, what the person has to do is work in a visionary way or in a symbolic way at the energy of the planets in sextile that form the base of the Yod triangle. They have to do this in order to more fully understand the meaning of the apex planet.
So here we have in this energy in the heavens now as an opportunity for sensitivity and for vision. An opportunity to be developed through understanding the energy of Sun at 9 degrees Taurus sextile Neptune at 9 degrees Pisces. And that understanding can lead us to understanding the meaning of the North Node of the Moon which is currently at 8 degrees Libra.
So what does the energy of this Yod in the heavens at this time mean?
Well, I believe we are called to find and develop our own sensitivity to Sacred Earth.
I have just spent this time exploring a deep cave in the Lake District (called Cathedral Cave: see photo opposite) and walking through the weird weather to feel the beauty of Elterwater: the lake in the English Lake District whose name means ‘Swan Lake’ in Old Norse, the language of the land’s earlier inhabitants.
Indeed some time ago I wrote a visionary novel called Sacred Earth (available on Amazon).
So, what is the meaning of the Sun – Neptune combination?
Well, Reinhold Ebertin in his wonderful study: ‘Combination of Stella Influences’ includes, the following manifestations when experienced with positive consciousness:
Sensitiveness. Vision. Compassion. Receptiveness. Active imagination, enthusiasm. Mysticism, soul life, inner life-experience. Great subtlety. He says these are Visionaries, mediums, sensitives. He writes that the aspect can offer abundant experience in psychic or spiritual realms. Mystical experiences, journeys to far-distant places. Success through sympathetic understanding of others.
And what is the energy of the North Node of the Moon in this Yod. Well, I was very interested to find that this degree in Vedic Astrology (14 deg Vedic Virgo) has the following Sidereal symbol based on ancient Vedic Star Lore:
SYMBOL : A radiant rainbow in the centre of which is the Sun in its brightness – Denotes a lover of nature in her grandeur, one of artistic, mystic and philosophic mind, who will move about a great deal and travel to various places. He is capable of spreading the light of truth and of helping many to see and appreciate its marvels. This degree is a fortunate one and promises much.
Through contacting the beauty of Mother Earth, our planet, we are brought to appreciation of the sacred which lies immanent within all landscape.
We create a collective energy field that honours the earth and the Sacred. In writing this I am contributing to that.

Rune Magic by Michael James Conneely:
The Seeress prophesied at the beginning of time that the Gods of Asgard will not survive the final battle; the Nine Worlds are heading to destruction; beauty and order will fail. As the forces of chaos and darkness gather, Declan and Magda, two young people who have never even seen each other before, suddenly find themselves seized by Odin. He takes them from their own world to work together to save the magic of the Runes and create a new future for the gods. Caught up in the end of the worlds, they choose love, courage and even cunning, and they themselves undergo the awesome magic tests where Odin first won his great powers. But can the prophecy of the Seeress be averted? Can a new world be created? And what will be their place in it? ‘Heimdall has sounded the Gjallarhorn. The forces of chaos are invading Asgard,’ Magda said urgently.

I just received this Review posted on Amazon about my Novel Druid – thank you to Anne Lee in Washington State USA:
This is an epic adventure that’s actually the author’s life story which makes it even more compelling. I read the author’s other book, Sacred Earth, (which I loved), so I decided to give this one a try and I am SO glad I did. This is a story of ancient Ireland and how the culture was lost when St. Patrick brought new religion to the land. It magically weaves through time when the characters use supernatural powers as they attempt to reclaim all that is lost. I contacted the author while reading this book and he replied saying the story is based on his life and I learned he has set up a school called the Druid Forest School which encourages the studies of ancient Ireland. This book has entertainment value as well as inspiration to help restore a lost culture. It’s packed full of Irish history which shows connections to Greek and Roman history. Above all, it’s a love story about the land of Ireland. I believe this book should be required reading in all Irish Schools and suggested reading for those with Irish heritage or feel a spiritual connection to any land. I’ll read it again!
