World of Archangels
It does not matter in which order you invoke the angels. Start at the hour that suits you best. If you keep to the same hour, you will work with the energies of each of the archangels over a seven-day period. Alexandra, a friend who carried out the ritual for her son Sam who was going away to college, began on the first hour at sunset on Wednesday, which meant the ritual used the energies of the archangel Michael. The final ritual on the Tuesday was Sam's leaving party. Sam joined in the final candle-lighting just before his party and later said that when he was lonely or scared at college, he remembered the candles and felt protected. If you cannot obtain candles of the right colour, use white. If you cannot find the right angelic fragrance, substitute lavender or sandalwood - these are all-purpose. For angelic crystals, use any of the colours associated with the angel, if the specific ones you want are not available. The crystals need only be tiny.
Down the ages there have been many different ideas regarding these beings and it can be a confusing mine field to work through. However, most ideas fall into one of two categories when we whittle them down. There are those who believe the Holy Guardian Angel, hence forth known as HGA, to be a totally external being. They believe it is an entity totally separate from the person which chooses to watch over someone's spiritual well being. Also in this category are the HGA's again separate in origin who are bound by part life or karma to watch over someone's spirituality. Crowley and others like him however believed the HGA was the Silent Self , representative of one's truest divine nature. Even though the HGA is, in a sense, the higher self', it is often experienced as a separate being, independent from the person relating to it. In systems of magic such as Thelema, the single most important goal is Originally Posted by Crowley . It should never be forgotten for a single moment that the...

This preparation is important, although, as I have previously said, many of the words and actions in the best rituals remain spontaneous within the basic framework. You do not even need to belong to a coven to create beautiful rituals. Indeed, practising alone, you will find that as you increase in confidence, the natural rhythm of the ritual cycle will amplify your own innate powers and you will feel angelic or devic forces joining with you as you walk around the circle and hear their voices mingling with your chants.
Christianity, in common with a multitude of new religions, or old religions with new faces, emerged in the ferment of emotional excitement which had involved all the world's peoples in the years immediately preceding the Christian Era. That there was an unusual celestial phenomenon to catch men's attention and to inspire them with disturbing thoughts is not denied many maintain that the Star which brought the Wise Men to Jerusalem was a nova - it is accurately dated in Chinese records and, if this sudden brightness in the sky was indeed a nova, then its magnitude must have been of a literally shocking kind.
RUBRIC These words shall be said when Ra appeareth over figures of these gods written in colour upon a tablet, and thou shalt place offerings of tchefau food before them, cakes, ale, flesh, geese, and incense. They shall cause the deceased to enjoy the offerings which come forth at the word of command before Ra and they shall give the deceased an abundance of food in Khert-Neter, and shall deliver him from every evil thing whatsoever. And thou shalt not recite this Book of Un-Nefer in the presence of anyone except thine own self.

Whether fable or fact, astrology's influence on the origins of most religions, including Christianity, is indisputable. In his Book On The Universe Albert the Great writes The sign of the celestial virgin rises above the horizon, at the moment we find fixed for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. And Dr. Hales in his Chronology says the star of our salvation, the true Apollo, the sun of righteousness (describing Christ.)
The Sun falls on your skin, warming you, and its warmth is absorbed, slowly, sinking in.it warms your skin, your blood, your bones.it seeks out worry, pain, and stress, and burns them gently away like the morning dew.the heat of the Sun, the celestial Fire, burns away everything that can hurt you, leaving only warmth and comfort in its wake.breathe in, and out, letting the Sun move through you.
I act as the guide of the celestial beings. I make to flourish terrestrial beings. There is joy of heart for the Bull, and for the celestial beings, and for the Company of the Gods. I am the god, the Bull, the Lord of the gods, who maketh his way over the turquoise. O wheat and barley of the nome of the god, I have come into thee. I have come forward. I have lifted you up, following the best offerings of the Company of the Gods. I have moored my boat to the tying-up post in the lakes of the celestial beings. I have pulled up the typing-up post. I have recited words, and
It is interesting to note that the Wheel of the Year is mirrored almost exactly in the Medicine Wheel, or Circle of Power, that is central to all the magick of the Native American Indians. The spokes of the Medicine Wheel link the celestial, human and natural cycles. The Medicine Wheel was made of stones and could be created wherever a tribe camped. Some were 90 feet in diameter, but research suggests that some were much smaller and were placed around ceremonial tepees to be used not only by the shaman but also by anyone seeking a spiritual path. Depicted around the wheels are totem, or power, animals, representing each birth month and season, the four main directions and winds. The totems vary according to each tribe's mythology. There are more than 500 different systems in North America alone.
Astronomy The belief that a connection exists between the stars and other celestial bodies (the macrocosm) and humans (the microcosm). The stars, it was believed, influenced the life of individuals, and certain amulets, stones related to one's astrological sign and other such objects, provided protection against the fatal influence of celestial bodies.
Jesus Christ was deified by Constantine in the year 325 A.D. December 25th, Christmas, was propagated and propagandized as the day of his birth and Christians accepted this on faith though their top chronologists could find no evidence to support this. This date was celebrated in the temple of Jerusalem to the god Adonis. One writer has said At the first moment after midnight of the twenty fourth of December, the ancient nations celebrated the accouchement of the queen of heaven and celestial virgin, and the birth of the God, Sol, The Infant Savior, and the God of Day. In Egypt and Syria the celebrants went into temples and the night before December 25th and at the stroke of midnight rushed out yelling The Virgin has brought forth The light is waxing Since most of the ancient Gods were said to be born of a virgin, many historians believe that this may relate to the zodiacal sign Virgo.
If Protestantism emerged as the new people's religion, full of hope for the future, it did so partly by casting Catholicism as the old-fashioned religion, full of superstition and administered by a priesthood that not only performed sacramental magic, but also practised angelic or demonic magic (Waite, 2003 229). Indeed, to one anonymous reformer writing in 1556,
Know little or nothing of satanism or Crowley's ideas. The number 666 is displayed as a symbol by rock groups and is written on walls by young rebels, while the emblem of the Baphomet, which was designed by the nineteenth-century magician Eliphas Levi and popularized by Crowiey, is widely used and recognized. Members of satamst churches claim to follow Crowleyian precepts. These come from his Book of Laws which he claimed was dictated to him by his Holy Guardian Angel. The three that have most currency today are
The reason for my question regarding is Daath a sphere or a pathway will become clear to you soon I hope. According to my studies so far Daath has no deity name, no angelic host or any element attributed to it so I have removed these from my list. The Magical Image and Briatic Correspondence I have left in place for everyone else to mull over. As I have said these are my own opinions of correspondences, I have found few definite ones so I am forced to come up with my own. Feel free to add your own I will explain my reasoning for each correspondence after the list as I try to explain the paradox which is Daath. As a fore thought I will add here that this being such a paradox, don't worry over much about understanding it. We can't, but it helps if we have a vision of what this sphere can be so that we understand the transition from Binah to Chesed better. Magical Image A mighty crowned and throned king. Name of Power El (God) Archangel Tzadkiel. Angels Chasmalim, the...
Many cunning men and women were described as odd people, with strange or unusual appearances, or living alone or in semi-seclusion, who could do a thing or two. Their animals were regarded as their FAMILIAR servants, or, when public opinion was charitable, as their good angels.

I conjure you three sisters of fairies, Milia, Achilia, Sibylia, by the father, by the sonne, and by the Holie-ghost, and by their vertues and powers, and by the most mercifull and living God, that will command his angell to blowe the trumpe at the daie of judgement and he shall saie, Come, come, come to judgement and by all angels, archangels, thrones, dominations, principats, potestates, virtutes, cherubim and seraphim, and by their vertues and powers.

All magicall arts confuted by an argument concerning Nero what Cornelius Agrippa and Carolus Gallus have left written
Least Nero should espie the cousening devises thereof. Which when Nero conceived, and sawe the same, and all the residue of that art to be vaine, lieng and ridiculous, having onelie shadowes of truth, and that their arts were onelie veneficall he prohibited the same utterlie, and made good and strong lawes against the use and the practisers thereof as Plinie and others doo report. It is marvell that anie man can be so much abused, as to suppose that sathan may be commanded, compelled, or tied by the power of man as though the divell would yeeld to man, beyond nature that will not yeeid to God his creator, according to the rules of nature. And in so much as there be (as they confesse) good angels as well as bad I would know whie they call up the angels of hell, and not call downe the angels of heaven. But this they answer (as Agrippa saith de vanitat. scient. .) Good angels (forsooth) doo hardlie appeare, and the other are readie at hand. Here I may not omit to tell you how Cor....
In Cabalistic magic the circle will usually consist of basically a double or triple concentric circle. In between the lines will be written Hebrew names, divine and angelic, which pertain to the nature of the operation. In the centre may often be traced geometrical figures, such as a square or a pentagram whose sides or number of points again correspond numerologically with the type of spell being cast.
The Higher Self is rather like what some people call a Guardian Angel, except that instead of being outside of you it's a part of you -a higher, better part with a clearer viewpoint. Every year on their birthday each member of the family would receive these same offerings to their Genius-Juno from the whole house. This, more than the mere marking of age, is what made the celebration of birthdays so important. It was the time to acknowledge the persons highest, best self and encourage their relationship with it.
Asmodeus has his roots in ancient Persia. He is identified with the demon Aeshma, one of the seven archangels of Persian mythology. The Hebrews absorbed him into their mythology, where he attained the highest status and most power of all demons in Hebrew legends. According
The Magician will collect some branches and berries from the Juniper tree, which he will place within a container or pot with water to boil. He will drink a glass of that beverage when the ritual of angelic invocation begins. He will also place a censer over the altar of his sanctuary, in which he will put branches and berries of the Juniper tree. He can also add branches of Yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.) for the decoction that he has to drink, as well as for the smoke offering in the temple. Yet, if he does not find the Yarrow branches, only the Juniper tree will be enough for the rite.
Every magical circle is divided into four quarters that are in ceremonial magick called the Watchtowers. The higher essences who protect the quarters are invoked as the Guardians, who control and direct the elemental powers. Sometimes they are called Kings, sometimes Devas, or they may be pictured as the four main archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel. How you perceive your guardians in the ritual circle is up to you. As with all magick, there are disagreements about which archangel represents each element. This is because angels are found in a number of different traditions and religions and so may serve different functions under similar names. I have also seen Michael listed as archangel of the dawn and East, but I think he is better placed as archangel of the Sun in the South. If you feel uncertain, simply refer to each guardian as Archangel of the North', etc., then the celestial being can reveal itself in the form that is right for you. The angelic colours I have given...
The shape of witchcraft, in history and in legend, has been as varied as the imagination of the witch or personality involved dared. Little in common can be seen between Snow White's beautiful but wicked stepmother with her Mirror, mirror, on the wall and Joan of Arc with her dedication to a cause, unrelenting drive, thirst for adventure and celestial voices. And certainly these two women would never have felt a rapport with mythology's Medea, the sorceress who, when scorned by Jason, gifted his new and very much younger love with a gown of magical cloth that burned as fire.
Which brings me to the crux of the matter. According to ancient magical legend, Azael was originally one of those beings of primordial fire, first created dwellers in the high heaven, referred to by the Christian church as messengers, or angels, by the Greeks as daemons. Azael and his followers, according to old lore, in defiance of their masters, elected to descend upon the earth countless eons ago, for the purpose of educating and civilizing primitive man as he then existed. Whether it was part of their original plan or merely a side issue, these angelic beings, Sons of God or Watchers of the Heavens, as they were entitled, elected to mate with womankind. The Book of Genesis briefly records the legend thus We again find traces of this lore in the Norse legend of the giants' revolt, and similarly in Greek mythology concerning the gods' dealings with the rebellious Titans. It is a persistent theme. The Zohar intimates, however, that though most of the giants yielded up their lives in...

ANOTHER CHAPTER WHICH IS TO BE RECITED WHEN THE MOON RENEWETH ITSELF ON THE DAY OF THE MONTH WHEREON IT DOETH THIS . Osiris unfettereth the storm-cloud in the body of heaven, and is unfettered himself Horus is made strong happily each day. He whose transformations are many hath had offerings made unto him at the moment, and he hath made an end of the storm which is in the face of the Osiris, Auf-ankh, whose word is truth. Verily, he cometh, and he is Ra in journeying, and he is the four celestial gods in the heavens above. The Osiris Auf-ankh, whose word is truth, cometh forth in his day, and he embarketh among the tackle of the boat.
If you make your own candles or incense for your rituals, you can endow energies by chanting the purpose for which they are being made. Some practitioners prepare their ritual substances the day or the evening before the ceremony, at the right planetary or angelic hour for its purpose. But you do not need to do this - the days of apprentices and long hours devoted to a single ritual are gone and even the most complex ceremony need take no more than an hour, many much less.
They communicate with people by psychic 'chanelling' and rule over the beings associated with the four elements, Fire, Air, Water and Earth. In less formal practices, either archangels or pillars of light may be visualised in the corners of the room to offer protection at a time when a person is opening then-psyche to the cosmos, to keep out all negativity, earthly or otherwise. But the greatest protection is a pure heart and pure intent, much harder to attain than learning any complex ritual.
This is the time of the second harvest of vegetables, fruit and remaining crops, the harvest home that pre-dates Christianity. On the day when equal night and day heralded winter, the feast formed a sympathetic magical gesture to ensure that there would be enough food during the winter, by displaying and then eating in celebration the finest fruits of the harvest. Druids traditionally climb to the top of a hill to take leave of the summer Sun as the nights will get longer. Michaelmas, the day of St Michael, the Archangel of the Sun, is celebrated on 29 September. St Michael was patron saint of high places and replaced the pagan Sun deities in Christianity.
Mehurt is the great Celestial Water, but others say that Mehurt is the image of the Eye of Ra at dawn at his birth daily. Others, however, say that Mehurt is the utchat of Ra. Now Osiris the scribe Ani, whose word is truth, is a very great one among the gods who are in the following of Horus they say that he is the prince who loveth his lord.
And is HUMWAWA appears to the priest, will not the dread PAZUZU also be there Lord of all fevers and plagues, grinning Dark Angel of the Four Wings, horned, with rotting genitalia, from which he howl in pain through sharpened teeth over the lands of the cities sacred to the APHKHALLU even in the height of the Sun as in the height of the Moon even with whirling sand and wind, as with empty stillness, and it is the able magician indeed who can remove PAZUZU once he has laid hold of a man, for PAZUZU lays hold unto death.

The ritual structures, terminology, and goals of ceremonial magic are usually-but not always-centered upon union with the divine, with perfection, and the expansion of consciousness. Or, as it is commonly described, knowledge of and conversation with the magician's holy guardian angel.
It is a serious mistake to regard informal spells as inferior to the kind of magick in which the appropriate planetary hour is carefully chosen, incense is burned, the tools laid out in the correct position and the names of all the archangels recited without a mistake. Both have a place and even if there were an actual deity watching the minutiae of the ritual, he or she would be less interested in whether a correct elemental pentagram was drawn than if the intent and the heart were pure and the need was genuine.
Dagger upon the air, and then reversed at che close of the ceremony to banish them. To purify the magician as well as the working space, he produced another known as die 'Qabbalisuc' (i.e. Cabbalistic) Cross, m which the body was blessed using Hebrew forms, and the four Hebrew names of divinity invoked at the four quarters, followed by the names of the four archangels. The latter were for some purposes identified with the Lords of the Watcntowers, the mighty angels who guarded the quarters of the world m John Dee's Elizabethan system of Enochian magic (Regardie, 1937-40 Torrens, 1973).
THERE is yet another art professed by these consening conjurors, which some fond divines affirme to be more honest and lawfull than necromancie, which is called Theurgie wherein they worke by good angels. Howbeit, their ceremonies are altogether papisticall and superstitious, consisting in cleanlines partlie of the mind, partlie of the bodie, and partlie of things about and belonging to the bodie as in the skinne, in the apparell, in the house, in the vessell and houshold stuffe, in oblations and sacrifices the cleanlines whereof they saie, dooth dispose men to the contemplation of heavenlie things. They cite these words of Esaie for their authoritie to wit Wash your selves and be cleane, &c. In so much as I have knowne diverse superstitious persons of good account, which usuallie washed all their apparell upon conceits ridiculouslie.

Auriel is the Archangel for the element of Earth.

He had visited a black magician who, for a goodly sum of money, had given him a spell from an old grimoire. The spell was along these lines 'Obtain a hare and skin it. Dry the skin in the sun for three days then cut a nine inch square from it. Write the girl's name on this square and then the sign of the dark angel. Under this, in black paint, write - You (girl's name), I command, go to (boy's name). This I command in the name of the lord of darkness. Bury the skin in a place where the girl will walk over it daily.'
One of the founders of the Golden Dawn, Samuel Mathers, was more interested in the practical applications of Kabballistic and hermetic magic, and produced definitive translations of old magical texts such as the Book of Abramelin and the Key of Solomon. He created the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, which is still in use today, and assigned the four Elements to specific compass directions based on the Tetragrammaton in order to call angelic guardians for Golden Dawn ceremonies. Mathers also began to incorporate imagery of Pan and the Great Goddess, which was becoming popular at the time, to assist in the practitioner's magical progress. Mathers also made another unwitting contribution to the eventual creation of Wicca by introducing a man named Aleister Crowley to the Golden Dawn and to Freemasonry.
The Incantations of the Gates follow, and are probably meant to accompany the preceding chapter, being prayers proper to each of the celestial Gates. The conjuration of the Fire God follows this, and resembles the others in its mixture of Greek and Sumerian phrases. It should be noted here that wherever a Sumerian phrases. It should be noted here that wherever a Sumerian phrase appears in the original MS. we have kept it as it is, untranslated, as we expect the Mad Arab would have wanted it. Quite possibly, even he did not know the exact meaning of much of the conjurations in the Old Tongue, but viewed it as a 'barbarous' tongue' which must be preserved because of its essential Power. Indeed, with the publication of this Book, Sumerian may become as popular among magicians as the strange, angelic language of Enochian, discovered by Dr. Dee in Elizabeth England. After the long and poetic MAGAN text, comes the URILLIA text which might be Lovecraft's R'lyeh Text, and is subtitled...
Most Wiccan temples contain a circle, which defines the sacred working space. When actively consecrated, this physical border becomes a boundary between the human world and the realm of the Mighty Ones. Symbolically, the circle represents celestial Unity, cyclic movement, and completion. The circle is feminine in nature and serves to contain, as does the womb, all life and energy raised within it. The circle is an important feature of most Pagan religions because it can be created anywhere, and provides a symbolic ring of protection where a deity can be invoked.
The Intimate in ourselves is our Internal Master, our God, our real Being, our Spirit, our superior Self, our Father who is in secret. The Intimate is an ineffable flame of the great bonfire. He is a fragment of the Absolute in our heart. En accordance with Moses, the Intimate within ourselves is the Ruach Elohim, who was sowing the waters in the beginning of the world. The Intimate is the Monad of Carpocrates, the Daimon of Socrates, the Seity of Tibetans, the Silent Gandarva or Celestial Musician of the Hindus. The Intimate is our Father within ourselves, the Soul is the Son and the Holy Spirit is the sexual fbrce, which is named Kundalini and is symbolized by the snake.

The Lord of Abominations is HUMWAWA of the South Winds, whose face is a mass of the entrails of the animals and men. His breath is the stench of dung, and has been. HUMWAWA is the Dark Angel of all that is excreted, and of all that sours. And as all things come to the time when they will decay, so also HUMWAWA is the Lord of the Future of all that goes upon the earth, and any man's future years may be seen by gazing into the very face of this Angel, taking care not to breathe the horrid perfume that is the odour of death
You can calculate a week or even a month ahead if there is a period in which you intend to do a lot of magical work. In this way you can maximise the energies of specific hours and choose a good time for anything from asking for a rise at work to sorting out the budget with a reluctant partner. Enter the planetary and angelic hours in your diary or the appropriate section in your Book of Shadows. These calculations can also keep bored children amused on rainy afternoons - just tell them stories about the angels and planets first. Children also adapt quickly to angelic time - after all, it's far more fun if you change sad old bedtime into St Michael's hour and have a bedtime story by the light of his golden candle. Angelic Correspondences You can, if you wish, use angelic rulers instead of planetary ones for the magical hours, or combine the energies of both. In practice, if your magick has a spiritual focus or is concerned with healing or global or ecological matters, angels work...

The Deity Force says There should be a way to create a computer. The Archangel Force says The best way to do that would be to have different bits that handle different jobs just like a body. The Angelic Force would produce the design for a computer. The Planetary
Legend has it that the prophet Muhammad was bewitched by an evil man and his daughters, who tied 11 knots in a cord which they hid in a well. The spell made Muhammad ill, and he wasted away nearly to the point of death. To save him, God intervened and sent the archangel Gabriel to reveal where the cord was hidden and how to break the spell. When the cord was brought to him, Muhammad recited 11 verses from the Koran. As he spoke each line, a knot loosened itself. When all the knots were undone, the spell was broken. In Sura CXIII in the Koran, Muhammad calls magicians' work the evil of women who are blowers on knots.

Archangel of the Sun and Light, Michael is the warrior angel. He appeared to Moses as the fire in the burning bush and saved Daniel from the lions' den. As commander of the heavenly hosts, Michael, with his flaming sword, drove Satan and his fallen angels out of the celestial realms as Angel of Judgement, he also carries a scale for weighing the souls of the dead. According to the Koran, the cherubim were created from Michael's tears. Archangel of the Moon, the messenger archangel and the heavenly awakener, Gabriel appears many times in the Bible. He visited the Virgin Mary and her cousin Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, to tell them that they were to bear sons who would lead mankind to salvation. It was Gabriel who parted the waters of the Red Sea so that the Hebrews could escape from the Pharaoh's soldiers.
He himself was the supreme God. Luna is elsewhere known as Helena and is said to have been a Phoenician prostitute saved by Simon from a Tyrian brothel. For Simon Helena was his own Thought (Ennoia) she had created the intermediate powers of the angels and archangels, who had in turn created the world but then enviously shut Ennoia herself into her human body. Simon had descended to the earth in order to free Helena and all mankind from the intermediate powers. He too projected himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and as virgin-born (see 14). He evidently adapted the gospel to suit himself. Christian writers repeatedly identify the performance of miracles and free love as characteristic of his priests. Christian heresiologists came to regard Simon as the founder of the heresy of gnosticism. The battle between Peter and Simon culminated in a contest of powers before Nero. Peter won this when he broke Simon's flying spell and sent him crashing to...

Different days of the week and hours of the day and night are associated with specific energies and each particular time is ruled by a planet and an archangel. Though these were primarily centred on ceremonial magick, they can also be used to give focus and potency to informal spells. The planetary and angelic hours can also be applied to the everyday sphere, for example by choosing the appropriate day and even hour for beginning a money-making scheme or a first meeting with a potential business partner or lover. You can further amplify the salient qualities and strengths of these times by using oils, incenses, coloured candles and crystals linked with the specific planets and angels. There are also strong connections between the planet and angel of the day, though angelic magick tends to be used, not surprisingly, for rituals with a more spiritual and ecological or global focus. As you discover particular combinations that work well, you can add them to your Book of Shadows.
If you are working in a group, or if this is a circle for a more formal ritual, you may wish to add god goddess-power forms as an interspersed chant, with the voices of the group ebbing and rising in waves. You may wish to welcome the Archangels, or Guardians of the Four Watchtowers at the four compass points as you cast your circle. (The Archangels represent the celestial beings that feature in the cosmologies of the three main religions of the Western world -Christianity, Judaism and Islam. For more information, see pages 200 and 236). Alternatively, you may wish to call upon powerful goddess forms
The opening of the orifice of this canal of Shushumna is performed under the direction of an angelic atom, which is situated in the semen. This fine thread through which the Kundalini ascends is very delicate. If the Gnostic Medic does not withdraw himself before the orgasm, if he indeed arrives at the spilling of the semen, then this thread is ripped. It becomes a burned fuse or burned wire and the Kundalini descends one or more cannons (vertebrae) in accordance with the magnitude of the fault.
The god of the Celestial Ocean (Nu) draweth from thee his waters. Thou sendest forth the north wind at eventide, and breath from thy nostrils to the satisfaction of thy heart. Thy heart reneweth its youth, thou producest the The stars in the celestial heights are obedient unto thee, and the great doors of the sky open themselves the two seasons of the day. May Ra give glory, and power, and thruth-speaking, and the appearance as a living soul so that he may gaze upon Heru-khuti, to the KA of the Osiris the Scribe Ani, who speaketh truth before Osiris, and who saith Hail, O all ye gods of the House of the Soul, who weigh heaven and earth in a balance, and who give celestial food to the dead .

Give ye thanks unto him in his beneficent...
