Attention all astrological angels!

An ancient astrological tradition links the planets and zodiac signs with certain angels. This seems to have been first put into writing by a Syrian monk who forged a number of treatises and published them under the name of Dionysus the Areopagite. He was said to have been the first bishop of Athens (but is sometimes confused with St Denis of France). The pseudo-Dionysian works were of great importance in the development of the Catholic faith, and the Treatise oin the Celestial Hierarchy dealt in detail with the spiritual creatures descending from God to man - among them the Seraphim (who were concerned with the orering of the solar system), the Cherubim (which rule the Zodiac), the archangels (in charge of the sphere of Mercury) and the angels (linked with the Moon's sphere). Comets were carefully looked after by the Seraphim and Cherubim, the fixed stars were kept in order by the Kyrioetes or Spirits of Wisdom, the Moon by the Archangels ans the earth by both angels and men.

The planetary angels are:
Gabriel - the Moon,
Raphael - Mercury
Haniel - Venus
Michael - the Sun
Camael - Mars
Zadkiel - Jupiter
and Zaphkiel - Saturn.

The Archangels who look after the zodiac signs are:
Aries - Malshidael
Taurus - Asmodei
Gemini - Ambriel
Cancer - Muriel and Manuel
Leo -Vershiel
Virgo - Hamaeliel
Libra - Zuriel
Scorpio - Barchiel and Solzol
Sagittarius - Adnachiel and Ayil
Capricorn -Hamael
Aquarius - Cambiel
Pieces - Barchiel

The Archangels Michael, Uriel, Raphael and Gabriel are responsible for the four elements, fire, earth, air and water.
