The Correspondences of the Seven ArchAngels

Please note that while a strong angelology is an important part of our daily practice, we are not involved with Enochian magick. 

Esoteric Christianity teaches that all angels have male and female counterparts, just as the Gnostic Aeons are male and female. Judaism and Christianity inherited their beliefs about angels (among other major doctrines) from the Zoroastrians who believed in the male and female angels known as the Amesha Spentas, the Bountiful Immortals.

Angels do have gender and, to my knowledge, no-where does the bible state that they do not. While Our Lord Jesus did explain that angels do not marry, this does not mean that angels are genderless! And just because the bible mentions only a few angels that happen to be male, this does not indicate that all angels are male!

Gender is not to be confused with biological sex. Gender is a Divine Principle, a state of being and is not dependent on biological sex. Here on Earth, the Divine Principle of Gender is expressed through biological sex, but not in Heaven. We believe in the Divine Principle of Gender as stated in the Kybalion. And, as some scientists are discovering, gender is reflected through-out the cosmos on the quantum level.

Angels in Heaven are created beings; they are not pure spirit. They have Soul-Form and they have often appeared as humans on Earth.

Our list of the Archangels comes from that of Pseudo-Dionysius.

We include here one feminine angel from this list, Archangel, St. Hanael.

The angels are not canonized human saints. We refer to them as St or saint to honor them and set them apart.

Please note, we assign their directions according to our own system. For the traditional Cardinal Directions please see:
