The Traditional 7 Archangels

Michael - Michael means "who is as God". He is an angel of "The Last Judgment". He is the "Weigher of
souls" who decides where people are sent for eternity: to Heaven, or to Hell. He is often described in
wondrous form with armor and swords, and is known as a dragon-slayer. He defeated Satan, the fallen
angel, by the order of God. Regardless of which major faith's angelic beings is being followed, Michael
ranks as the highest of the host. He is the leader of the celestial armies and is the angel who fought Satan
during the War and enchained the rebel leader. He is considered to be of the class of seraphim, and yet is
also head of other ranks within the hierarchy: the ruler of the archangels, leader of the virtues, and head of
the principalities in his role as protector of Israel. Michael is considered to be the angel of the burning bush
through which God spoke to Moses, and has also appeared in the book of Daniel, where God states him as
being the highest within the angelic ranks. Although other angels have been attributed with the title of Angel
of Death, it is Michael who weighs the souls on judgment day, after his battle once more with the forces of
evil. He is mentioned as both an angel of destruction and vengeance in the name of God, but also as a
protector and the angel who kept Satan from claiming the body of Moses after the patriarch's death. By all
rights, Michael can be considered foremost among the angels.
Gabriel - Gabriel Rules the Moon, West, Water and the Cherubim Gabriel means "power" or "hero". Gabriel
is the governor of Eden and the ruler of Cherubim. Gabriel is often described as a female angel with a lily in
her hand. The lore of the Annunciation is well-known. Gabriel is the angel of resurrection, mercy, revelation,
and death Gabriel is often considered as a slightly more benevolent spirit than her ally Michael., Another
notable birth that Gabriel presided over was that of John the Baptist when abriel came to Zacharias and told
him of his coming son. Within all of the legends of birthing, Gabriel as been accredited as the angel who
selects souls from heaven to be birthed into the material world and spends the nine months as the child is
being eveloped informing the new person of what he or she will need to know on Earth, only to silence the
child before birth by pressing his finger onto the child's lips, thus producing the cleft below a person's nose.
Besides births however, Gabriel is also the angel who came before Daniel and told him of the future as well
as the angel responsible for strengthening Christ prior to the Crucifixion. Finally, not being all pregnancies
and wisdom, she is told as the angel who struck down the cities of Sodom and Gommorah as well as other
places of sin throughout the Old Testament although she is never named there as such.
Raphael - Raphael, the "shining one who heals", is often shown holding a bottle of medicine. He is the
guardian of the Tree of Life in Eden, and the angel of the Sun. Raphael rules the Sun, the East and Air.
Although a seraph, Raphael is also mentioned as being a member of the cherubim, dominations and
powers. He has been attributed as the chief of virtues, although that ranking has also been given to Michael,
and also can be considered head of the guardian angels. His most notable appearance in scripture is his
guiding of young Tobias in the apocryphal book of 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 of
Abraham after his circumcision, and healing Jacob's thigh after Jacob wrestles with another angel. He is
also considered to be a patron of the sciences as well as medicine, teaching Noah how to construct the ark
before the flood, and teaching Solomon how to bind demons into slave labor when Solomon's Temple was
being built.
Uriel - Uriel means "the fire of God" or "the face of God". He is seen holding a fiery sword at the gate of
Eden. He watches over thunder and terror. Uriel is identified as both a seraph and a cherub, Uriel is most
well known for his role as Regent of the Sun in the book of Revelation where he calls forth the birds of the
air to feast upon the fallen. As one of the most faithful and dedicated members of the host, Uriel was also
placed in charge of Tartarus (another name for Hades), warned Noah of the impending flood (although
Raphael is credited with teaching the building of the ark), and attacked Moses for failing to circumcise his
son. Accepted as an archangel by the Church for many centuries, he was finally removed from 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 of death Sariel works along side of Raguel. Sarial is a
seraph who is given the role of deciding the fate of angels which stray from God's path. He is also credited
27
as being an angel of knowledge, and one of the leaders in Heaven's armies, his name being written upon
the shields of one of the fighting forces. Sariel is an Angel of Guidance. He is responsible for the lot of
angels that violate God's sacred ordinances. Sariel is considered the prince of presence and an angel of
healing. This celestial being is associated with the skies and holds dominion over the sun sign, Aries.
Raguel - (Raguil, Rasuil, Rufael, Suryan, Akrasiel -"Friend of God") One of the 7 Archangels listed in the
Enoch writings. Raguel is an angel of earth, a guard of the 2nd (or 4th) Heaven. He 'takes vengeance on the
world of luminaries," which is interpreted to mean that, for cause, he brings other angels to account. Raguel
is one of the principalities. Besides this vigilance, Raguel is also mentioned as being an angel of ice and
snow, calling forth other angels during the Final Judgment to deal with the unpure. He is also said to be an
angel of earth, a guardian of the second heaven and is the one who brought Enoch to the heavens.
Jarahmeel (Remiel)- Remiel...over those who rise. Remiel or Jeremiel ("mercy of God or whom God sets
up") Leads souls to judgment. Also angel of true visions. Remiel is accredited with two tasks. First, he is the
angel responsible for true divine visions, and is said to be the angel to give such a vision to Baruch before
destroying Baruch's enemies, the armies of Sennacherib. Beyond that, he is also the guide for the souls of
the faithful, leading them into Heaven after Michael weighs them at the last trump. Although not mentioned
specifically as such, such a role would lead to the assumption that Ramiel is a power.
There are several others that are identified as Archangels that we will have participate with us in this
attunement:
Raziel ("Secret of God"): One of the cherubim, Raziel is the giver of divine mysteries as well as an angel of
knowledge. It is he who lead to the writing of the book of Enoch and is also the author of the tome from
which Noah learns to build the ark. This is not to be confused with Raphael, who is the angel to give Raziel's
book to Noah, but did not write it himself.
Jophiel ("Beauty of God"): One of the cherubim, Jophiel is accredited with being the angel to drive Adam
and Eve from the Garden of Eden after they eat the forbidden fruit. If this is the case, Jophiel receives also
the honor of being the first angel to be mentioned in the Bible. In such a role, he is last left guarding the
Tree of Life with a flaming sword to prevent the return of man. Jophiel is the Angel of Enlightenment. This
angel inspires us toward awareness, enlightenment, open-mindedness and freedom of thought. He teaches
our consciousness to discover the Light within.
Zadkiel ("Righteousness of God"): Belonging to the ranks of the dominations, and considered by some to
be chief, Zadkiel is considered an angel of mercy. It is he who holds back the hand of Abraham to prevent
the patriarch from sacrificing his son, and because of this is usually shown holding a dagger. Also, Zadkiel is
one of two standard bearers (along with Zophiel) who follow directly behind Michael as the head archangel
enters battle .
