Composed from Doreen Virtue material and Silver RavenWolf’s Angels: Companions in Magick
Ariel Ariel’s name means “Lioness of God”1, and she reflects these qualities, including bravery, courage, focus, and elegant movements. If you notice images of lions or lionesses, this signals that Ariel is with you. Call upon her to boost your confidence and courage. Ariel loves all living beings, and gladly helps them all. She’s a master manifestor, and she’s especially supportive of people who are healers, teachers, and service workers. She’s very partial to the environmental area, and she works closely with the nature angels [elementals] to protect and heal animals—particularly the birds, animals, and fish who live near/in the water. One way to work with Ariel is to participate in environmental work, including picking up trash near a lake, stream, or ocean; donating time or money to an environmental cause; or switching to environmentally friendly cleaning supplies. Ariel is involved with Divine magic, which means instant manifestation of the highest will. Ariel helps attract any support you need for your life’s mission. Know that it’s normal and “inthelight” for miracles to occur in this arena. Ariel’s aura is a pale shade of pink, and if you wear or hold a rose quartz crystal, your heart will open further to Ariel’s magnificent love. Ask her for whatever you need, and she’ll guide you accordingly. This angel oversees the work of all nature spirits and holds the keys to the fairy kingdoms. U/Ariel is the angel of Friday and of the North Wind/North. Azrael Azrael’s aura is a beautiful shade of vanilla cream: a very pale yellow tone. He surrounds grieving and dying persons with this loving light to bring them comfort. When Azrael is around, you may see eggshellcoloured twinkling lights in the room. The crystal, creamy yellow calcite is calibrated to Azrael’s energy, so holding/wearing this crystal may bring additional comfort. Azrael’s name means “Whom God Helps”, and he helps those who are helpers. He’s particularly interested in helping counselors who work with the grieving or dying. Ask Azrael to guide your words and actions during counseling sessions, and he’ll help you remain patient and compassionate. He can also help you enter the counseling profession and guide you toward schooling, internships, and a wonderful counseling practice. Azrael is known as the “Angel of Death” since his primary role is to help people
1 Angels: Companions in Magick gives it as meaning “Earth’s great lord” or “shining Earth”.
cross over to the Summerland at the time of their physical death. Far from being a morbid role, Azrael surrounds the newly crossedover soul with loving light to make the experience uplifting and comforting. Azrael helps deceased loved ones make contact with their living family members and friends. You can ask Azrael to bring you a message or dream visitation from your loved ones in the Summerland. In Tarot correspondences, Azrael is Death. Chamuel Chamuel’s aura is pale green, like a springtime leaf in the morning sunlight. Wear or carry a green fluorite crystal to feel closer to Chamuel’s loving energy. Chamuel’s name means “He who sees God”. His ability to see clearly helps us find things, situations, and people. He’s renowned for helping people find the career best suited to their purpose and passions. Call upon Chamuel as your career counselor often! When you wish to feel more centered, calm, and peaceful, call upon Chamuel. He is the archangel of personal and global peace. He’s very kind, loving, and sweet, and he’ll evoke a pleasant feeling of excitement when he works with you. Know that Chamuel sees your true qualities and loves you unconditionally. Chamael is a leader of the Powers, an angel of Tuesday, the angel of beauty (“Chamael, angel of joy, descend upon the earth and give beauty to all things”). Associated with Aries. An angel of Mars. His tarot association is Strength. Gabriel As the messenger angel, Gabriel loves to help writers and journalists deliver healing messages. Like a loving coach, she’ll urge you to delegate your time and energy toward writing. Gabriel can also open doors that allow for publication of your articles and books, if you’ll ask for her assistance. Most of all, she’ll help you enjoy writing. Gabriel’s name means “God is My Strength”2, and this phrase describes you as well. Regardless of your background, you have God’s strength pouring through you at all times. Gabriel can help you fearlessly tap into this power. She’ll reassure you that it’s safe for you to be powerful, and protect you in all ways. Gabriel’s aura is copper, like her trumpet. When you wear the crystal stone citrine, or the precious metal copper, you readily connect with her energy. Gabriel works with mothers and children during all phases of conception, childbirth, adoption, and parenting. She helps grownup children as well. If your heart longs for some play time, call upon Gabriel to make all of the arrangements. She’ll guide you along as you nurture your inner child. If you ask her, Gabriel will also assist with your own parenting desires and needs. She is the angel of resurrection, mercy, vengeance, death, birth, transformation, and mystery revealed, as well as being a peacemaker. She’s the chief of the guards who watch over Summerland. Her gifts include hope and messages from the divine realms through the written word. She is the guardian of Goddess energy on earth and
2 Angels: Companions in Magick gives it as meaning “governor of light” from “gabri” which means governor, and the suffix “el” which means shining.
protects those in service to the Goddess. She enjoys flowers. Horses, especially winged ones, are associated with Gabriel. She is the protector of childbirth and pregnancy, and heralds the birth of prodigies. Her floral symbol is the lily, the fleurdelis, which represents the triple aspect of the Goddess. Gabriel is thought to be the geneticist who oversaw the breeding of Adam, and is connected to Lilith, Adam’s first wife (who was born of the stars)3. She is listed as being a Power and an angel of Monday, a fourth and eleventh hour angel of Sunday, the angel of January (colour: white), the angelic essence of the West and the Western Wind, an angel of altitude, of dreams, of light, of birth prophecy and conception, and of mercy. She is associated with Mars, Cancer and Pisces, and is a Moon angel. Her tarot association is The Moon. Haniel Haniel’s aura is bluishwhite, like the full moon’s glow. The crystal associated with Haniel is the moonstone, which has magical, nurturing energy associated with it. Wear or hold a moonstone whenever you wish to feel close to Haniel. She will care for you with her nurturing mother energy and effect miracles with her love for you. Haniel’s name means “Glory of God”. Haniel can help you give glory to God by living at your highest potential. She’ll groom your hidden talents, and help you polish your skills. Then, when you apply your masterful ways to your true passions, Divine magic occurs! Haniel helps us honour our natural cycles, moods, and rhythms. She assists us in embracing all aspects of ourselves, including our strengths, setbacks, and shadows. Call upon her if you ever feel unsure, or bad about yourself. Haniel will help you appreciate yourself and see how beautiful you are right now. Haniel is one of the Virtue leaders and as Hanael 4 is the angel of December (colours: red and green). Hanael carries missives to the divine ones and can be invoked as a defender against evil. There is an association with Ishtar. Jeremiel Jeremiel’s name means “Mercy of God”, and when you call upon him, Jeremiel delivers mercy to you and everyone involved. Jeremiel guides you and others to act in loving ways. He also helps you adopt a merciful outlook, which enables you to consistently treat yourself with respect and tender loving care. One of Jeremiel’s purposes is to help newly crossedover souls review their lives. He also helps those who are still living to make life reviews. Take time soon to be alone, and ask Jeremiel to help you review where you’ve been, what you’ve learned, what patterns you’re ready to release, and what you’re grateful for in your life. Jeremiel’s aura is a deep eggplant purple. When you see sparkles of dark purple light, this is one way to know that Jeremiel is with you. Jeremiel’s crystal is the amethyst. When you wear an amethyst, you may feel even closer to Jeremiel’s kind and loving energy.
3 They aren’t the same being. 4 Angels: Companions in Magick lists this as meaning “glory”.
An angel of “true vision”, allowing those who call on him to ferret out the truth —of course, this may be at all costs. His totem animal is the eagle. Remiel and Uriel have similar attributes. This angel is also in charge of the soul integration process into a new human body, if one believes in reincarnation. Jophiel Jophiel’s name means “Beauty of God”. She sees beauty in everything and everyone, and helps you do the same. Jophiel knows that when we spend regular time outdoors, we’re cleared of lower energies, and naturally have a more beautiful outlook on life. Call upon Jophiel to ease your schedule to allow for outdoor time: plan a naturebased vacation, move to a more rural environment, start a butterfly garden, or just connect to nature in any way that pleases you. Jophiel helps us experience more grace and peace in our lives through slowing down and noticing the beauty that already surrounds. She asks us to savour and enjoy each moment, rather than hinging our happiness on some future goals. Call upon Jophiel anytime you feel rushed, stressed, or unhappy. She’ll increase your awareness and appreciation of life’s everyday miracles. Jophiel’s aura is deep rose pink, signifying her beautiful, loving, and caring nature. Dark pink crystals, such as pink rubelite, are associated with Jophiel’s energy. Anytime you’re involved with redecorating or spring cleaning call upon Jophiel to help you. It’s like having your own spiritual interior decorator and feng shui consultant! Metatron Metatron is one of two archangels who once walked upon Earth as a human man. Metatron was the prophet and scribe Enoch, who ascended after his exemplary Earth life. He continues working as a scribe and record keeper in Summerland. He helps people develop organizational and recordkeeping skills as well. When you call upon Metatron, he motivates you to organize your priorities. If you feel drawn to help children (your own, or children in general), ask Metatron for an assignment that mirrors your natural talents and interests. Metatron works closely with psychic and sensitive kids, and he loves to help adults help these children. If you need more time, money, ideas, contacts, or other support for this mission, call upon Metatron. He’ll help you manifest your needs so your focus can be directed toward his beloved Crystal and Indigo Children. Metatron’s aura is beautiful violet and sea foamgreen stripes. The crystal aligned with Metatron’s energy is watermelon tourmaline. Metatron is a ruler of the Seraphim. We have him down as a superangel. He links the human to the divine. When invoked, Metatron appears as a pillar of fire, as dazzling as the sun. He is both the creator and the librarian of the Akashic records. Metatron is the writer of truth and gives inspiration and knowledge to humans. This angel is associated with the Shekinah (Metatron is the male aspect, Shekinah the female aspect). Also an angel of prayer, song, and Gaia. Tarot associations are The Hierophant and The Sun.
Michael Michael’s chief role is to escourt away the lower energies of fear. If you become worried or anxious, mentally ask Michael to bring you peace. You can also ask that he clear your home, office, vehicle, or community of toxic energies. After you call upon Michael, you’ll likely notice a warm feeling. That’s because he has a fiery warrior spirit. You can ask Michael to stay with you continuously, as he’s able to be with everyone who calls upon him simultaneously. Michael’s name means “He Who is Like God”, since he emanates the Creatrix’s awesome qualities of love, power, strength, and unwavering faith. When you call upon Michael, your own similar qualities are enhanced and magnified. Ask Michael to enter your dreams and clear away any fears that are blocking you from fully enjoying and living your spiritual gifts and qualities. Michael works especially well with us while we’re sleeping, since that’s when we’re more openminded and receptive. Michael’s aura is royal blue mixed with tinges of royal purple. When he’s nearby, you may see cobaltblue sparkles of light. The crystal stone sugalite is aligned with Archangel Michael’s energy. If you wear a sugalite pendant, you may find yourself channeling profound and loving messages from Michael when you speak. Michael is the chief of the order of Virtues; chief of the Archangels; angel of repentance, righteousness, and mercy; and the ruler of the fourth heaven. His mystery name is Sabbathiel, and in Islam he is known as Mika'il. He is an avenging angel, traditionally depicted wearing armour. He has the peacock’s feather wings. Traditionally he carries a blazing sword, but today his weapon is the written word and not military rockets. He is the chief guardian of police officers, security guards, hunters, and armed service personnel. He stands firm as the guardian of the Goddess on the astral planes, wherein he protects her energy from the onslaughts of the patriarchy. Michael has a special talent for cleansing anything, from people to places. He watches over all bodies of water. His festival, Michaelmas, takes place on September 29. On Sundays, he’s hours one and eight. He’s the angel of snow, mercy, Gaia, and prayer. His direction is South and he’s the angel of the southern wind. He’s associated with Leo, the sun, Mercury, and Saturn. Raguel Raguel’s name means “Friend of God”, and his principal role is to create harmony and order in relationships. He has the power to resolve disputes, and is often referred to as “The Archangel of Justice and Fairness”. If you find yourself in a dispute, ask Raguel to act as mediator. He’ll come up with a creative resolution in which everyone wins. Like an airtraffic controller, Raguel oversees archangels and angels, ensuring harmony, cooperation, and order among them all. In this same way, he’ll help you sort all your feelings, enabling you to notice, understand, and follow them. Raguel has beautiful paleblue energy, like the sky on a perfect spring morning. He’s the archangel who guides people to act in fair and just ways, and Raguel also gives us faith in humanity’s essential goodness. Wearing or holding an aquamarine crystal will align you with Raguel’s kind and wise persona.
Raphael Raphael’s name means “Whom God Heals”5, and he is known as the healing angel in charge of physical healings for all living beings. Often, Raphael gives us Divine guidance (intuition, thoughts, ideas, dreams, and so on) about how we can participate in keeping our bodies healthy. When you call upon Raphael for a healing, pay attention to inner impressions, and be sure to follow through upon guidance that calls you to take action. Raphael is Summerland’s physician, and he prescribes preventative and curative medicine in the form of Divine intervention and guidance. In the former, he swoops into the situation and surrounds it with his emeraldgreen healing light and love—and the situation is instantly healed. But in the latter (which is actually more common), Raphael will give you intuition and hunches showing how you can help with the healing. Ask Raphael to surround anything needing healing with his emeraldgreen aura. The crystals that are aligned with Raphael’s healing energy are emeralds and malachite. Raphael’s main task is to heal the earth and, through the earth, all those on it. He takes care of sickness, disease, and imbalance in all Gaia’s children. Known as the angel of the sun, he rules science and knowledge. He is the ruling prince of the second heaven, the overseer of evening winds, and guardian of the tree of life. He is the angel of love and laughter. He is a guide in the underworld, as well as the patron angel of doctors, nurses, midwives, alternative healers, travelers, and those who have lost their sight. He is the angel of magickal tools and the mysteries that surround them. Raphael has an affinity with young people and creativity. Some say he is the supervisor of all Guardian Angels. He has a sense of humour and likes jokes and playful times. He looks out for those starting new spiritual paths or those who are striving to excel on their chosen journey of enlightenment. He likes to visit unsuspecting mortals and chat with them (the “incognito” angel). He carries a caduceus. Raziel Archangel Raziel’s name means “Secrets of God” and this archangel will help you understand esoteric and spiritual ideas and apply them in practical ways. Call upon Raziel to assist your alchemical work—to turn ideas into gold. As the wizard and alchemist of the archangel realm, Raziel helps us understand ideas that defy normal logic. He expands and challenges everyday thinking in ways that ultimately have healing effects. If you hunger for deep spiritual understanding, ask Raziel to enter your dreams. You’ll soultravel with him to classrooms where he’ll help you uncover truths and secrets. Upon awakening, you may not fully remember or understand Raziel’s teachings, yet this knowledge is permanently embedded in your
5 Strictly speaking (according to Angels: Companions in Magick) it means “shining healer”. His original name was Labbiel.
subconscious, where it guides you throughout each day. Raziel’s aura holds all the colours in the rainbow, like a beautiful prism of light. Working with clear quartz crystals magnifies clairvoyance and helps you feel closer to Raziel. He’s the angel of mysteries and wrote the Book of the Angel Raziel, which contains all earthly and celestial knowledge. He’s a Divine snoop with compassion. When invoked, he appears as a brilliant white fire. He commands the Hyyoth, aka the four heavenly beasts associated with the female Shekinah (they hold up the universe, and function as the angels of fire). Sandalphon Sandalphon is one of two archangels who were mortal men, who lived such remarkable spiritual lives that they ascended into archangeldom (the other one is Metatron). Sandalphon can help your life be a masterpiece as well. Ask him to help you live in integrity, with your spiritual gifts of prophecy, healing, and manifestation fully awakened. Sandalphon can help you speak your truth openly, in a way that benefits everyone. He’ll also help you appreciate all the miracles and victories—of every size—in your life. One of Sandalphon’s principal roles is to deliver and answer our prayers. Sandalphon says that every prayer is heard and answered (although the answer may come in a different form than we expect). All prayers are of equal importance in Summerland, and there are plenty of angels to help everyone on Earth. Call upon Sandalphon when you need help in allowing yourself to receive. Sandalphon’s aura is a calming and cool shade of turquoise, like the translucent tropical ocean. Meditate upon this colour, or hold the stone associated with his energy —turquoise—and feel your heart rate and breathing become quieter. Sandalphon can help your words and actions to be kind and gentle, yet powerful. As the archangel associated with music, you can feel his presence strongly when you listen to music, sing, or play a musical instrument. Noted as an angel of prayer and brother of Metatron. Shekinah Shekinah is known as “glory emanating from the divine” and stands for liberation. Many see her as “the Holy Ghost”. In Jewish lore, Shekinah stands between the creator and the human. When Adam and Eve left Eden, she remained. The purpose of the universe is to reunite male with female; creator with creatrix; Metatron with Shekinah. Uriel Uriel’s name means “The Light of God”. He’s known for his ability to enlighten our minds with Divine inspiration. Anytime you need answers or insights, call upon Uriel. He answers anyone who calls upon him. You’ll know that Uriel has answered when you have repetitive thoughts or ideas that are positive, loving, and helpful. If you need facts in a hurry (such as during a test or important meeting), Uriel will supply you 7
with the information. After you ask him for help, the answer will pop into your mind. Trust the information that he supplies. Uriel helps to illuminate cloudy situations by lighting your pathway. He usually only lights one step at a time, however, so you may not be able to clearly discern the ultimate outcome of your actions. But you will know what step to take next—all along the way—with Uriel’s help. Uriel’s energy is pale yellow, like a candle’s glow. Whenever you need ideas or intellectual guidance, contact Uriel. His energy is aligned with the amber crystal. Uriel gave the interpretations of the mysteries of magick to humans and is especially kind to those born in September. He is the protector of psychics and all who seek to foretell the future for the good of humankind, as well as journalists, teachers, and writers. He is in charge of natural phenomena, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, hurricanes, volcanoes, and earthquakes. Uriel’s archetype is the god of the sun. He’s a “terminator” angel, as unswerving in duty as a fortyton truck traveling ninety miles an hour with no brakes. U/Ariel is the angel of Friday and the North Wind/North. Zadkiel Zadkiel is the ultimate spiritual professor. He’s patient, kind, and has access to all knowledge. He’s widely known for his ability to help human memory function. If you need to remember or memorize any information, ask Zadkiel to assist. Anything that you need to know, Zadkiel is glad to teach you. Just ask him questions in order to elicit his help. Sometimes Zadkiel uses the Socratic method of teaching, which means that he’ll lead you so you can learn for yourself. Being observant of patterns in everything you see, hear, and think is the best way to benefit from Zadkiel’s teachings. Zadkiel’s name means “Righteousness of God”, and he helps us release unforgiveness toward ourselves and others. Ask him to come into your dreams and act like a chimney sweep, clearing away any emotional toxins from your heart. He’ll ensure that everyone’s needs are met, and that emotional healings occur in miraculous ways. His aura is a deep indigo blue. When you wear the mineral lapis lazuli, you may feel a closer connection to Zadkiel. Hold this stone above your eyebrows to awaken your ear chakras and to clearly hear the voice of the Divine. Zadkiel is associated with Mercury and Jupiter, and is a prince of the Dominions.

Invocation of the Nine Choirs 6 Brilliant Seraphim, I call to thee circle 'round, bring love to me. Mighty Cherubim, guard my gate remove from me sorrow and hate.
6 RavenWolf, Silver. Angels: Companions in Magick. St. Paul, Minn.: Llewellyn Publications, 2006.
Thrones, stand firm, stable be keep me steady on land or sea. I call Dominions, leadership true may I be fair in all I do. Circles of protection Powers form help me weather any storm. Miraculous Virtues, hover near elemental energies I summon here. Principalities, bring global reform bless the world and each babe born. Glorious Archangels, show me the way to bring peace and harmony every day. Guardian angel, Goddess might bless me with your guiding light.
THE FIRST SPHERE These beings operate at the highest level of the astral, closest to Divinity. They can manifest things by pure contemplation. The Seraphim They are considered angels of pure love, light, and fire. They keep the vibes around Divinity clean of negativity, and send out Divinity’s vibes to the other Spheres and us, keeping the ball spinning. They shine too brilliantly for most humans to deal with. You don’t just run into them, it’s an INVITATION ONLY thing. But they’ll listen if you ask for their help in a ritual for humanitarian and planetary workings (especially group rituals). Burn a white candle for Divinity and a purple candle for the Seraphim.
The Cherubim They function as the guardians of light and stars; they create and channel positive energy; they watch out for the entire multiverse, collecting and dispensing energy as needed; they guard any religious temple/place of worship; they can function as personal guards who wield flaming swords, should that be necessary. In looks, they’re very far from the fat babies of art; they’re usually halfhuman halfbeast (many Egyptian deities can be seen as Cherubim; e.g. Sekhmet, Bast, Anubis). Their name means “those who intercede”; they’re beings of knowledge and boundless love. 13
Call them if you need divine protection, wisdom, and knowledge. Burn a white candle for Divinity and a blue candle for the Cherubim. The Thrones These are the private investigators of the angel realm, and justice is very important to them. They’ll searchlight any injustice and send healing energies to the victims (usually working through the Guardian). They create, channel and collect incoming and outgoing energies and teach humility. They are usually assigned to planets, so most planetary angels are Thrones. Their name implies their stability; Divinity stands on their capable shoulders. If you need smoothing out trouble between groups of people or individuals, for stability, and anything related to planets or planetary energies, call the Thrones. THE SECOND SPHERE They’re concerned with the cosmos and interconnectedness, and flow in an intensity of power. They carry out orders from the higherups and take an interest in the orders of those below them. They also concern themselves with the governing of a specific planet.
The Dominions These are the Divine leaders; they’re the epitome of cause/effect; they are perfect mediators and arbitrators; they go about integrating the material and the spiritual. If you have any issue with, about or relating to leadership, the Dominions are the first ones to call. They’re concerned with leaders and leadership, and the fairness and balance that ought to go with it – like the Angelic ANTICORRUPTION HOTLINE. They bestow ‘natural’ leadership and help all types of leaders. They’re also great to call when starting a new project or if you get stuck with a continuing one. Burn a white candle for Divinity and a pink candle for the Dominions. The Powers They are warrior angels, and function as regulators of chaos. Working out of encompassing love, they dispense justice. They organize the world’s religions and send divine energy to keep the positive aspects of them going. They work through the human sixth sense to warn of someone set to harm you, and ferret out hidden agendas. Call them when in trouble. They ferret out hidden agendas designed to harm others and will help you spot this if you ask them. They’ll defend your home, property, kids, or any group of people who call on them for defense. Burn a white candle for Divinity and a yellow candle for the Powers. The Virtues These are the “miracle angels” they move massive amounts of energy to the earth plane and collective human unconsciousness. They bestow grace and valour and are 14
fond of the “underdogs” who strive to work beyond their restrictions and achieve when others say they can’t. They love gogetters and positive people striving towards harmony. They are the nature angels, so the elemental energies fall under their auspices – earth, air, fire, water, spirit, weather patterns, planetary upheavals. They’ll also help with healings; they’ll be the hotline if you’re in trouble, sick, or scared. Burn a white candle for Divinity and an orange candle for the Virtues. THE THIRD SPHERE They are the earth angels who mingle with humanity and are closely involved in human affairs. The Principalities They guard large groups, like continents, countries, cities, towns, and other grandscale human activities. They’re about global reform, and watch and work with human leaders in political or religious affairs, to try and help them make good decisions. You’ll find them where any large group of people is gathered, whether to make decisions or have fun. They are Divine Human Rights Lawyers, and will help in times of discrimination. They fight against extinction. They’ll sort out inadequate leadership, whether in a company or a city or a country, and will help with making wise decisions regarding these. The Archangels The Archangels deal with everyone, from the top brass to the newborn babe. They’re often involved in one of the other Spheres. The four established Archangels are Michael, Raphael, Gabriel and Uriel. Others include Metatron, Jeremiel, Chamuel, Zadkiel, Raguel, Raziel, Jophiel, Azrael, Ariel, Sandalphon, and Haniel. To contact them, burn a white candle for Divinity and their personal corresponding candle colour. The Angels These are the guardian angels, those assigned to individuals. Everyone has one. They may hail from one of the other spheres, if you’re a revolutionary or working towards something big. Whatever the case, they link themselves to human and physical matters, and funnel energies from you to Divinity and back. They’re constantly it touch with the other angels, and work with you and with them to accomplish things. They’re our best friends and closest companions. They stick it out with you from birth to death, through all your incarnations. If you want their help, ask and believe. They’ll rally whatever they can; they’ll do everything in their power if you just ask. You’ll still have to do some footwork, of course, but they rock with bringing out hithero unseen opportunities or beelining activities; they’ll help plot out solutions and soundboard them if you want them to. 15
Burn a white candle for Divinity, and choose your favourite candle colour for your guardian.
