The Traditional 7 Archangels

Michael - Michael means "who is as God". He is an angel oI "The Last Judgment". He is the "Weigher oI
souls" who decides where people are sent Ior eternity: to Heaven, or to Hell. He is oIten described in
wondrous Iorm with armor and swords, and is known as a dragon-slayer. He deIeated Satan, the Iallen
angel, by the order oI God. Regardless oI which major Iaith's angelic beings is being Iollowed, Michael
ranks as the highest oI the host. He is the leader oI the celestial armies and is the angel who Iought Satan
during the War and enchained the rebel leader. He is considered to be oI the class oI seraphim, and yet is
also head oI other ranks within the hierarchy: the ruler oI the archangels, leader oI the virtues, and head oI
the principalities in his role as protector oI Israel. Michael is considered to be the angel oI the burning bush
through which God spoke to Moses, and has also appeared in the book oI Daniel, where God states him as
being the highest within the angelic ranks. Although other angels have been attributed with the title oI Angel
oI Death, it is Michael who weighs the souls on judgment day, aIter his battle once more with the Iorces oI
evil. He is mentioned as both an angel oI destruction and vengeance in the name oI God, but also as a
protector and the angel who kept Satan Irom claiming the body oI Moses aIter the patriarch's death. By all
rights, Michael can be considered Ioremost among the angels.
Cabriel - Gabriel Rules the Moon, West, Water and the Cherubim Gabriel means "power" or "hero". Gabriel
is the governor oI Eden and the ruler oI Cherubim. Gabriel is oIten described as a Iemale angel with a lily in
her hand. The lore oI the Annunciation is well-known. Gabriel is the angel oI resurrection, mercy, revelation,
and death Gabriel is oIten considered as a slightly more benevolent spirit than her ally Michael., Another
notable birth that Gabriel presided over was that oI John the Baptist when abriel came to Zacharias and told
him oI his coming son. Within all oI the legends oI birthing, Gabriel as been accredited as the angel who
selects souls Irom heaven to be birthed into the material world and spends the nine months as the child is
being eveloped inIorming the new person oI what he or she will need to know on Earth, only to silence the
child beIore birth by pressing his Iinger onto the child's lips, thus producing the cleIt below a person's nose.
Besides births however, Gabriel is also the angel who came beIore Daniel and told him oI the Iuture as well
as the angel responsible Ior strengthening Christ prior to the CruciIixion. Finally, not being all pregnancies
and wisdom, she is told as the angel who struck down the cities oI Sodom and Gommorah as well as other
places oI sin throughout the Old Testament although she is never named there as such.
Raphael - Raphael, the "shining one who heals", is oIten shown holding a bottle oI medicine. He is the
guardian oI the Tree oI LiIe in Eden, and the angel oI the Sun. Raphael rules the Sun, the East and Air.
Although a seraph, Raphael is also mentioned as being a member oI the cherubim, dominations and
powers. He has been attributed as the chieI oI virtues, although that ranking has also been given to Michael,
and also can be considered head oI the guardian angels. His most notable appearance in scripture is his
guiding oI young Tobias in the apocryphal book oI Tobit where he teaches the lad about medicine and
demon exorcising among other things. Also in his role as healer, it is Raphael who eases the pain oI
Abraham aIter his circumcision, and healing Jacob's thigh aIter Jacob wrestles with another angel. He is
also considered to be a patron oI the sciences as well as medicine, teaching Noah how to construct the ark
beIore the Ilood, and teaching Solomon how to bind demons into slave labor when Solomon's Temple was
being built.
Uriel - Uriel means "the Iire oI God" or "the Iace oI God". He is seen holding a Iiery sword at the gate oI
Eden. He watches over thunder and terror. Uriel is identiIied as both a seraph and a cherub, Uriel is most
well known Ior his role as Regent oI the Sun in the book oI Revelation where he calls Iorth the birds oI the
air to Ieast upon the Iallen. As one oI the most IaithIul and dedicated members oI the host, Uriel was also
placed in charge oI Tartarus (another name Ior Hades), warned Noah oI the impending Ilood (although
Raphael is credited with teaching the building oI the ark), and attacked Moses Ior Iailing to circumcise his
son. Accepted as an archangel by the Church Ior many centuries, he was Iinally removed Irom the records
in 745 CE as the Church became increasingly concerned with the prominence the public was placing upon
angels.
Sariel - ("Gods command") also known as angel oI death Sariel works along side oI Raguel. Sarial is a
seraph who is given the role oI deciding the Iate oI angels which stray Irom God's path. He is also credited
27
as being an angel oI knowledge, and one oI the leaders in Heaven's armies, his name being written upon
the shields oI one oI the Iighting Iorces. Sariel is an Angel oI Guidance. He is responsible Ior the lot oI
angels that violate God's sacred ordinances. Sariel is considered the prince oI presence and an angel oI
healing. This celestial being is associated with the skies and holds dominion over the sun sign, Aries.
Raguel - (Raguil, Rasuil, RuIael, Suryan, Akrasiel -"Friend oI God") One oI the 7 Archangels listed in the
Enoch writings. Raguel is an angel oI earth, a guard oI the 2nd (or 4th) Heaven. He 'takes vengeance on the
world oI luminaries," which is interpreted to mean that, Ior cause, he brings other angels to account. Raguel
is one oI the principalities. Besides this vigilance, Raguel is also mentioned as being an angel oI ice and
snow, calling Iorth other angels during the Final Judgment to deal with the unpure. He is also said to be an
angel oI earth, a guardian oI the second heaven and is the one who brought Enoch to the heavens.
1arahmeel (Remiel)- Remiel...over those who rise. Remiel or Jeremiel ("mercy oI God or whom God sets
up") Leads souls to judgment. Also angel oI true visions. Remiel is accredited with two tasks. First, he is the
angel responsible Ior true divine visions, and is said to be the angel to give such a vision to Baruch beIore
destroying Baruch's enemies, the armies oI Sennacherib. Beyond that, he is also the guide Ior the souls oI
the IaithIul, leading them into Heaven aIter Michael weighs them at the last trump. Although not mentioned
speciIically as such, such a role would lead to the assumption that Ramiel is a power.
There are several others that are identiIied as Archangels that we will have participate with us in this
attunement:
Raziel ("Secret oI God"): One oI the cherubim, Raziel is the giver oI divine mysteries as well as an angel oI
knowledge. It is he who lead to the writing oI the book oI Enoch and is also the author oI the tome Irom
which Noah learns to build the ark. This is not to be conIused with Raphael, who is the angel to give Raziel's
book to Noah, but did not write it himselI.
1ophiel ("Beauty oI God"): One oI the cherubim, Jophiel is accredited with being the angel to drive Adam
and Eve Irom the Garden oI Eden aIter they eat the Iorbidden Iruit. II this is the case, Jophiel receives also
the honor oI being the Iirst angel to be mentioned in the Bible. In such a role, he is last leIt guarding the
Tree oI LiIe with a Ilaming sword to prevent the return oI man. Jophiel is the Angel oI Enlightenment. This
angel inspires us toward awareness, enlightenment, open-mindedness and Ireedom oI thought. He teaches
our consciousness to discover the Light within.
Zadkiel ("Righteousness oI God"): Belonging to the ranks oI the dominations, and considered by some to
be chieI, Zadkiel is considered an angel oI mercy. It is he who holds back the hand oI Abraham to prevent
the patriarch Irom sacriIicing his son, and because oI this is usually shown holding a dagger. Also, Zadkiel is
one oI two standard bearers (along with Zophiel) who Iollow directly behind Michael as the head archangel
enters battle .
