What You Need to Know About Archangels and Astrology


Archangels are very powerful angels that govern a series of lesser angels throughout the realms of existence. Throughout time angels and archangels have been mentioned in a series of religious scriptures. In astrology and tarot, angels govern a range of celestial bodies and their influence is embedded within the esoteric language. The archangels that hold precedence over the zodiac and planets are derived from sources such as Pietro d’Abano’s Heptameron (1250-1316) and Henry Cornelius Agrippa’s Three Books of Occult Philosophy (1531). The Golden Dawn’s teachings is the latest recorded source of angel and astrology studies.

Each archangel holds a connection to planetary aspects, and by knowing how to work with them, you can seek out a solution to the hardships you are experiencing.

For example, if ever you are feeling stuck and unmotivated, you can look to what and where your natal Mars is located in your birth chart. Mars is governed by archangel Zamael, and by knowing the sign you can look to which archangel holds support to the sign

Even in weekly transits or planetary retrogrades you can look to the archangels for energetic support.


How to work with the Archangels and their Energetic Ray

To start, look at which planetary body you wish to boost in its effectiveness in your life.
