ABATHAR MUZANIA is a demiurge mentioned in the literature of Mandaeism. He is described as having the responsibility of weighing the souls of the deceased to determine their worthiness using a weighing scale. He is also described as being the angel of Polaris.
AGLIBOL is a Syrian god, originating from a north Syrian immigrant community. He is a moon god who was worshiped in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra as part of a trinity alongside Bel and Yarhibol, and associated with the sun god Malakbel.
Evidence of Aglibol's worship is primarily epigraphical. The earliest known mention of Aglibol was an inscription which dates back to 17 BC and associates him with the sun god Malakbel. Several other inscriptions made by the Bene Komare also associate him with Malakbel, including a bilingual inscription from 122 AD in which Aglibol and Malakbel sponsor a citizen by the name of Manai for his piety.
Several 2nd century AD inscriptions attest that Aglibol was venerated with Malakbel in a sanctuary known as the "Sacred Garden" (gnt' 'ilym), which was one of the four principal sanctuaries of the city. The Bene Komare tended to this sanctuary.
The sanctuary had two altars, a sacred cypress and a bath. One of the reliefs found in the Temple of Bel show the two altars and the two gods.
ANAEL is the Archangel of Venus. He/She is represented by the ancient fertility goddesses such as Aphrodite, Astarte, Isis and Frigga. His pagan male aspect is best represented by Eros whose arrows of desire captivate lovers.
Anael's magical image is a youth who seems to be neither male or female but combines the beauty of both sexes. He wears a long green cloak and his long black hair is banded by a ringlet of wild flowers and roses.
The Archangel Anael can be invoked for all matters to do with romantic love, harmony, friendship, pleasure, marital affairs, music, the arts and poetry. This angelic force represents nature as the manifestation of the divine material world. Meditation on this planetary energy can bring the magician in to contact with the green goddess of nature, sometimes known as the Lady of Wild Things.
ANANIEL, Anânêl (Aramaic: עננאל, Greek: Ανανιας) was the 14th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels who are mentioned in an ancient work titled the Book of Enoch. The name Ananiel is sometimes translated as "Rain of God" even though the name is often confused with the name Hananiel. Michael Knibb interprets his name to be "cloud of god". The name came into Arabic from the Coptics who in turn transliterated it from the Greeks.
Ananiel was entrusted by God "all the trees of the earth, its plants, the rain, the dew, the heat, the simoom, the wind and as many [atmospheric phenomena] as there are in summer and winter."
Ananiel is also known as an angelic guard of the gates of the South Wind. The Book of Enoch describes three gates for each direction. The first gate inclines to the south-east and brings a hot wind. The second is due south and brings pleasant fragrances, dew, rain, prosperity and life. The third is south-west and brings dew, rain, locusts and devastation. Ananiel is one of the guardians of these gates and can be interpreted as an Archangel to petition for these.
Conversely, according to the tradition of the Coptic Orthodox Church, Ananiel is the name of one of the seven holy archangels.
ARAKIEL (Greek: `Αραθακ Κιμβρα), also spelled Arâkîba, Araqiel, Araqael, Araciel, Arqael, Sarquael, Arkiel or Arkas, is a fallen angel, the second mentioned of the 20 Watcher leaders of the 200 fallen angels in the Book of Enoch, who taught the "signs of the earth" (which suggests geomancy) to humans during the days of Jared. Arakiel is also called Aretstikapha (meaning "world of distortion" [the combination of arets + kaphah]) in Chapter 69. His name is generally translated as "earth of God"; the combination of araq-earth (Babylonian in origin) and El-God. Michael Knibb lists him as a combination of two names "the land of the mighty one" or "the land is mighty".
ARARIEL (also called Azariel) is an angel who, according to the rabbis of the Talmud, takes charge of the waters of the earth. Fishermen invoke him so that they may take large fish. Arariel has also traditionally been invoked as a cure for stupidity.
ARIEL (Hebrew: ׳אךאל, romanized: Ari'el, Arael or Ariael) is an angel found primarily in Jewish and Christian mysticism and Apocrypha. The literal meaning is "lion of God." The word Ariel occurs in the Hebrew Bible at Isaiah 29:1, 29:2, and 29:7, where it refers to Jerusalem. The word appears at II Samuel 23:20 and I Chronicle 11:22 as referring to "men of valor" of Moab. It appears at Ezekiel 43:16 as referring to an "altar hearth," and it appears at Ezra 8:16 as the name of a Jewish man. It's also said that Ariel is not a rebel Angel.
In Thomas Heywood "Hierarchy of the Blessed Angels (1635) Ariel is called both a prince who rules the waters and "Earth's great Lord." In several occult writings, Ariel is mentioned with other elemental titles such as the "3rd archon of the winds," "spirit of air," "angel of the waters of the Earth" and "wielder of fire." In mysticism, especially modern, Ariel is usually depicted as a governing angel with dominion over the Earth, creative forces, the North, elemental spirits, and beasts. Other entries in angelologies to Ariel are found in Jacques Collin de Plancy Dictionnaire Infernal (1863) and Moïse Schwab Vocabulaire de l'Angélologie (1897).
ARMÂRÔS (Aramaic: תךמב, Greek: Αρεαως) was the eleventh on a list of 20 leaders of a group of 200 fallen angels called Grigori or "Watchers" in the Book of Enoch. The name means "cursed one" or "accursed one". The name 'Armaros' is likely a Greek corruption of what may be an Aramaic name; Armoni is possibly the original (according to this, he may be identified as Armoniel, also mentioned in chapter 7 in the Book of Enoch). Michael Knibb, Professor of Old Testament Studies at King's College London, lists the meaning of his name as being "the one from Hermon".
"Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it." - Book of Enoch
ARTIYA'IL is an angel in Islamic lore, believed to remove the grief of humans. He is mentioned in the hadith collection of Jalal Al-Din Al-Suyuti: when Abu Muslim al-Khawlani was awaiting news from Byzantium, the angel came down in the shape of a bird and introduced himself as the angel Artiya'il, the angel who removes the memories of anxiety.
ASBEEL (Heb. עזב azab "to abandon" + אל el "God", meaning "God has forsaken" or "deserter from God") is a fallen angel in the Christian bible that appears in the first book of Enoch, chapter 69, verse 5:
"And the second was named Asbeel: he imparted to the holy sons of God evil counsel, and led them astray so that they defiled their bodies with the daughters of men."
Asbeel was listed as the second of five "satans" who led astray the Grigori by falling in love with humans. There was also Yeqon (or Yaqum, "he shall rise"), Gadreel ("wall of God"), Penemue ("the inside"), and Kasdaye ("Chaldean", "covered hand").
AZAZEL (/ə'zeɪzəl, 'æzə,zεl/; Hebrew:צזאל,צזאל, עןז׳אל Arabic Romanized: `Azāzīl) is, according to the Book of Enoch, a fallen Angel. In the Bible, the name Azazel appears in association with the scapegoat rite; the name represents a desolate place where a scapegoat bearing the sins of the Jews during Yom Kippur was sent. During the Second Temple period, he appears as a fallen angel responsible for introducing humans to forbidden knowledge. His role as a fallen angel partly remains in Christian and Islamic traditions.
AZRAEL (/`æzriəl/; Biblical Hebrew: עןךאל `ázar'ēl) is the Angel of Death in Islam and some Jewish traditions. The Hebrew name translates to "Angel of God", "Help from God".64-65 Azrael is the spelling of the Chambers Dictionary. Both in Islam and Judaism, he is said to hold a scroll concerning the fate of the mortals. In Islam, he is one of the four archangels, and is identified with the Quranic Malak al-Mawt "angel of death", which corresponds with the Hebrew term malakh ha-maweth in Rabbinic literature. The Arabic language adapts the name as `Azrā'īl. He is responsible for transporting the souls of the deceased after death. In comparison to similar concepts of angels of death, Azrael holds a rather benevolent role as the angel of death.
BARACHIEL (Heb. בךכיאל "Bārki'ēl", blessed by God; Arabic: "Burāqīl") is one of the seven Archangels in Byzantine Catholic and Eastern Orthodox tradition.
In the Third Book of Enoch, he is described as one of the angelic princes, with a myriad of some 496,000 ministering angels attending him. He is described in the Almadel of Solomon as one of the chief angels of the first and fourth chora. He is often confused with the angel Baraqiel who is regarded as the angel of lightning.
BARAQIEL, Barâqîjâl, Baraqel (Aramaic: ,בךקאל Greek: Βαρακιηλ) was the 9th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels that are mentioned in an ancient work called the Book of Enoch. The name means "lightning of God", which is fitting since it has been said that Baraqiel taught men astrology during the days of Jared or Yered. Some scholars believe that he is Sanat Kumara of theosophists such as Benjamin Creme and Madame Blavatsky; others believe that Sanat Kumara is a separate being.
It has also been proposed based on a reconstruction by Schniedewind and Zuckerman that Baraqiel was the name of the father of Hazael, mentioned in the 9th century BCE inscription from Tel Dan. The biblical figure, Barak, known from Judges 4 is a shortened version of this longer name.
BATARIEL, Batârêl (Aramaic: מטךאל, Greek:Βατριηλ ) was the 12th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels that are mentioned in an ancient work called the Book of Enoch. The name is generally believed to be "valley of God" bathar-el and Babylonian in origin. Michael Knibb lists the translation for this Angel based on the Ethiopic Book of Enoch as "Rain of God".
BEZALIEL (also Busasejal, Basasael), Aramaic ניאל (damaged), Greek Θωνιηλ (damaged), was the 13th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels that are mentioned in an ancient work called the Book of Enoch. This angel is probably one of the most controversial of the list of fallen angels in the Book of Enoch. He is often left off the list of angels from chapter 6 as a result of the problematic transmission of the text. The R. H. Charles translation from 1917 does not include him on the list of 20 leaders. Michael Knibb says as of 1982 there were various translations of the name all with different names and meanings. The name Bezaliel (Shadow of God) is taken from chapter 69 and is the 13th angel listed there.
Bezaliel has been rarely mentioned in texts. There also is an occult organization which asserts that it works for this Watcher:
CAMAEL, also spelled Khamuel, Camiel, Cameel and Camniel, is the Archangel of strength, courage and war in Christian and Jewish mythology and angelology.
Camael is probably an alternate spelling of either חמואל (from chammah :חמח "heat", "rage"-"anger/wrath of God") or Qemuel קמואל (from qum קום: "to arise", "to stand up"-"God is risen", "raised by God", "one who sees/stands before God").
According to poet Gustav Davidson's popular work A Dictionary of Angels, Including the Fallen Angels (1967), he is known as one of the ten Kabbalah angels, assigned to the sephira Gevurah. Camael's name is also included in Pseudo-Dionysius' 5th or 6th century AD, Corpus Areopagiticum as one of the seven Archangels along with Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Jophiel, and Zadkiel. He is claimed to be the leader of the forces that expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden holding a flaming sword. However, in iconography he is often depicted holding a cup.
Camael was included in the Catholic Church in the Vatican's ban on the veneration of angels not mentioned in the Bible in the Directory of Public Piety (2002).
CASSIEL (Hebrew: קפציאל Qafiş'el; Arabic: Kasfiyā'il),(also known as Cafziel, Cafzyel, Caphziel, Casiel, Cassael, Casziel, Kafziel, Kasiel, Qafsiel, Qaphsiel, Qaspiel, Qephetzial, or Quaphsiel), meaning "Speed of God" or "God is my anger" is an angel appearing in extracanonical Jewish, Christian, and Islamic mystical and magical works, often as one of the Seven Archangels, the angel of Saturn, and in other roles. In the Ancient religions he is depicted as the god Chronos, Pluto, and Anubis who are all dieties associated with time, the underworld and death. He is also associated with the Greek goddesses known as the Fates and the Norse goddesses the Norns who are weavers of humanity's destiny. One of the Cassiel's titles is the Lord of Time and he represents the cosmic force of destiny, wyrd, or fate.
Cassiel's magickal image is a stern looking man dressed in a long black cloak. Sometimes he carries a staff and an hourglass to symbolize his rulership over time.
This archangel can be invoked for all matters concerning property, old people, wills and estates, legacies, karma, death, land, agriculture, and long~standing health ailments connected with old age In dealing with Cassiel it should be remembered that time is not linear but cyclic. Death is not the end of the human personality but the transformation to a new state of being.
CHAZAQIEL (Aramaic: זיקיאל Ancient Greek: Εζεκιηλ), also Êzêqêêl, was the 8th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels that are mentioned in an ancient work called The Book of Enoch. The name means "cloud of God", which is fitting since it was said that Chazaqiel taught men the knowledge of the clouds, meteorology. Michael Knibb translates this angel as being the "Shooting star of God".
DANIEL (Hebrew: דביאל , Ancient Greek: Δανειηλ), also spelled Dânêl, is an angel, the seventh mentioned of the 20 Watcher leaders of the 200 angels in the Book of Enoch, who taught the "signs of the sun" to humans. The name is translated by Michael Knibb as "God has judged".
Conversely, according to Francis Barrett in The Magus, Daniel is the name of one of the 72 holy angels bearing the name of God, Shemhamphorae.
DUMAH (Heb. דןמה "silence") is an angel mentioned in Rabbinical and Islamic literature as an angel who has authority over the wicked dead. Dumah is a popular figure in Yiddish folklore. I. B. Singer's Short Friday (1964), a collection of stories, mentions Dumah as a "thousand-eyed angel of death, armed with a fiery rod or flaming sword". Dumah is the Aramaic word for silence.
Dumah is also the tutelary angel of Egypt, prince of Hell, and angel of vindication. The Zohar speaks of him as having "tens of thousands of angels of destruction" under him, and as being "Chief of demons in Gehinnom [i.e., Hell] with 12,000 myriads of attendants, all charged with the punishment of the souls of sinners." As the patron of Egypt, he disregarded the command of God to exercise judgment over the Egyptian deities. Whereupon God banishes him into Gehenna, there he becomes its ruler and three angels of destruction are appointed to him. He and his fellow angels torment the sinners every day in the week except on Sabbath.
In the Babylonian legend of the descent of Istar into Hades, Dumah shows up as the guardian of the 14th gate.
According to hadiths mentioned in Al-Suyuti's al-Haba'ik fi akhbar al-mala'ik, Azrael hands over the souls of the deceased unbelievers to Dumah.
ELELETH is an angel in Gnostic cosmology and one of the four Sethian luminaries. Eleleth appears in Hypostasis of the Archons, Apocryphon of John, and The Three Forms of the First Thought found in the Nag Hammadi library in 1945 and is probably mentioned in the Gospel of Judas as El.
In The Hypostasis of the Archons Eleleth comes down from heaven to save Norea after she cried out to the Monad for help against the Archons, who try to seize her. After Eleleth appeared, the Archons withdraw from Norea, and Eleleth informs Norea about her true origin and the origin of the world.
GABRIEL (/'geɪbriə'l/; Hebrew: ףבךיאל, lit. 'Gavri'el "God is my strength"', Ancient Greek: Γαβριηλ, lit. 'Gabriel', Coptic: Γαβριηλ , Arabic: Jibrīl or Jibrā'īl), in the Abrahamic religions, is an archangel. He was first described in the Hebrew Bible and was subsequently adopted by other traditions.
Annunciation of Gabriel by Jan van Eyck, 1434. In the Hebrew Bible, Gabriel appears to the prophet Daniel to explain his visions (Daniel 8:15-26, 9:21-27). The archangel appears in such other ancient Jewish writings as the Book of Enoch. Alongside archangel Michael, Gabriel is described as the guardian angel of Israel, defending this people against the angels of the other nations.
The Gospel of Luke relates the stories of the Annunciation, in which the angel Gabriel appears to Zechariah and the Virgin Mary, foretelling the births of John the Baptist and Jesus, respectively (Luke 1:11-38). Many Christian traditions-including Anglicanism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Roman Catholicism-revere Gabriel as a saint.
Islam regards Gabriel as an archangel sent by God to various prophets, among them Muhammad. The first five verses of the 96th chapter of the Quran, the Clot, is believed by Muslims to have been the first verses revealed by Gabriel to Muhammad.
The Latter Day Saints hold that the angel Gabriel is the same individual as the prophet Noah in his mortal ministry.
Yazidis consider Gabriel one of the Seven Mysteries, the heptad to which God entrusted the world and sometimes identified with Melek Taus.
According to the ancient Gnostic manuscript the Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit, Gabriel is a divine being and inhabitant of the Pleroma who existed prior to the Demiurge.
Gabriel is the archangel of the Moon. Although the archangels are usually visualized as masculine in gender they are in fact androgynous having the potential of both sexes. As aspects of the lifeforce they can take on either masculine or feminine characteristics Gabriel is therefore represented in the old pagan religions by the Moon goddesses such as Diana, Selene, Hathor, Hecate, and Cerwyddn. There is some evidence of male lunar dieties such as Thoth and Sin. These Moon gods may have borrowed some of their attributes from earlier Lunar goddesses where partriarchy replaced the prehistoric matriarchal culture.
The magical image of Gabriel is a mature man who wears the curved cresent of the waxing Moon on his forehead This lunar symbol covers the third eye which is the source of psychic powers. Gabriel wears a silver cloak which reflects the light as does crystal glass.
Gabriel can be invoked for an increase in all things. Specifically, he has rulership over psychic powers, astral travel, conception, dreams, childbirth, and all matters connected with women , travel by sea, the home and imagination.
GADREEL, GADRIEL or GADEREL (Hebrew: גדך האל gader ha-el, literally "wall of God") is listed as one of the chiefs in the fallen Watchers. This is depicted in the second section of the "Book of Enoch"; "Parables". He is said to have been responsible for deceiving Eve.
Gadreel was mentioned as the third of five "satans" who led other angels into copulating with humans, leading to the creation of the giant-like Nephilim. The others were called Yeqon (or Yaqum, Aramaic "he shall rise"), Asbeel ("deserter from God"), Penemue ("the inside"), and Kasdaye ("Chaldean", "covered hand").
HADRANIEL (or HADARNIEL among other variant spellings), whose name means "majesty [or greatness] of God", is an angel in Jewish Angelology assigned as gatekeeper at the second gate in heaven. He is supposed to be more than sixty myriads of parasangs (approximately 2.1 million miles) tall and a daunting figure to face.
When Moses arrived in heaven to get the Torah from God, it was said that he was speechless with awe at the sight of Hadraniel. Hadraniel didn't think Moses should have the Torah, and made him weep in fear, which caused God to appear and reprimand Hadraniel for causing problems. Hadraniel quickly decided to behave and acted as a guide for Moses. This was a great help, for (according to Zoharic legend) "when Hadraniel proclaims the will of the Lord, his voice penetrates through 200,000 firmaments." Also, according to the Revelation of Moses, "with every word from his (Hadraniel's) mouth go forth 12,000 flashes of lightning."
In Gnosticism Hadraniel is only one of seven subordinates to Jehuel, prince of fire (King,p. 15). In the Zohar (55b), Hadraniel speaks to Adam about Adam's possession of the Book of the Angel Raziel, which was said to contain secret information that not even the angels knew.
HANIBAL is a minor god in Akkadian mythology, one of the attendants of the storm-god Adad.
HANIEL (Hebrew: הניאל, "Joy of God" or Hebrew: הניאל , "Grace of God,"; Coptic: Ανανιηλ ;Arabic: 'Anya'il), also known as ANAEL, HANAEL or ANIEL, is an angel in Jewish lore and angelology, and is often included in lists as being one of the seven archangels. Haniel is generally associated with the planet Venus, and is the archangel of the sephirah Netzach. The name Haniel probably derives from Hebrew hana'ah, "joy," "pleasure" (qualities associated with Venus) + the suffix -el, "God." Haniel is one of the archangels encrypted in the Sigillum Dei Aemeth of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly.
HARUT and MARUT (Arabic: Romanized: Harut wa-Marut) are two angels mentioned in Quran 2:102, who are described as having been present during the reign of Solomon (Sulayman), and as being located in Babylon. According to some narratives, those two angels were in the time of Idris. The Quran indicates that they were a trial for the people and through them the people were tested with sorcery. The names are probably etymologically related to Haurvatat and Ameretat, two Zoroastrian archangels.
HOFNIEL - The Fighter of God Hofniel's name appears in The Zohar. There, he is mentioned as one of the ruling angels or princes of Heaven. He rules over the order of Bene Elohim. Although, there are sources that consider Azazel the chief of the same order. But the Zohar is not the only Jewish source that mentions him. He also appears in The Massekhet Azilut. Which is an anonymous kabalistic work. This source also mentions the angel as the ruler of Bene Elohim.
ISRAFIL (Arabic Romanized: Isrāfīl, alternate spellings: Israfel, Esrafil) is the angel who blows into the trumpet to signal Qiyamah (the Day of Judgment) and sometimes depicted as the angel of music. Though unnamed in the Quran, he is one of the four Islamic archangels, the others being long with Mikhail, Jibrail and Azrael. It is believed that Israfil will blow the trumpet from a holy rock in Jerusalem to announce the Day of Resurrection. He is commonly thought as the counterpart of the Judeo-Christian archangel Raphael.
JEGUDIEL the Archangel also Jhudiel or Jehudiel (Hebrew: הודיאל Yehudiel "Laudation of God" or "God of the Jews") is one of the seven Archangels in Eastern Orthodox tradition and in the eastern rites of the Catholic Church.
JEHOEL or YAHOEL (Hebrew יהואל, also spelled Jehoel in some English texts, and Yaoel in French sources) is the name of an angel appearing in the Old Church Slavonic manuscripts of the Apocalypse of Abraham, a pseudepigraphical work dating from after the Siege of Jerusalem (70). He is an associate of Michael (Apoc.Abr.10:17) charged to restrain Leviathan and destroy idolaters (10:10-14).
Another later pseudepigraphical rabbinical work ascribed to Ishmael ben Elisha, Hebrew 3 Enoch 48d, gives Yahoel as one of the 70 names of Metatron, which makes sense in light of the character and role of Yahoel in the Apocalypse of Abraham.
In the 13th Century kabbalistic Berith Menucha of Abraham Merimon of Granada Yahoel is the angel over fire.
Several popular dictionaries of angels, such as Gustav Davidson A dictionary of angels: including the fallen angels (1967) repeat the claim that Jehoel was (in unidentified Jewish texts) the chief angel of the Seraphim. No source for this claim is forthcoming.
JEQON or YEQON (Hebrew: יקם, romanized: Yaqum, lit. 'he shall rise') was the ringleader who first tempted the other Watchers into having sexual relations with humans. His accomplices were Asbeel, Gadreel, Penemue, and Kasdaye (or Kasadya), who were all identified as individual "satans".
The Hebrew name Jerahmeel, which appears several times in the Tanakh (see the article Jerahmeel), also appears in various forms as the name of an archangel in books of the intertestamental and early Christian periods.

In the deuterocanonical book 2 Esdras, also known as 4 Ezra, which has come down to us in Latin and appears as an appendix to the Vulgate, as well as being canonical in the Russian and Ethiopian biblical canons. There is a reference in chapter 4 verse 36, to Jeremiel (in the Latin Ieremihel), which, however, does not occur in all the manuscripts. Other versions have Remihel, Oriel or Uriel. In this passage the angel or angels (Uriel is also there) are answering Ezra's many questions about heaven and hell.
Jeremiel (under any of his name alterations: Eremiel, Remiel, Remihel, etc.) had a very dour yet comforting duty in the pre-Christian eras. He was set over Sheol (the underworld) in Abrahamic tradition, in particular the "Bosom of Abraham", a region of the underworld almost identical in concept to the Greek idea of Elysium. Here Jeremiel was responsible for placating the righteous souls awaiting the Lord who resided there. In the post-Christian world Jeremiel's duty evolved and is paired with St. Simon Peter as gatekeeper of Heaven. In both cases Jeremiel watches over and guides the holy deceased in their afterlife journey.
There are generally seven archangels venerated by the Orthodox Christians: Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Selathiel, Jegudiel, and Barachiel. But sometimes they also add an eighth, Jeremiel, to this number. He is depicted holding balance scales in Orthodox iconography.
In the Apocalypse of Zephaniah, an apocryphal book which has come down to us in Coptic, the angel referred to as Eremiel tells Zephaniah
I am the great angel, Eremiel, who is over the abyss and Hades, the one in which all of the souls are imprisoned from the end of the Flood, which came upon the earth, until this day
In two or three places in the Book of Enoch, available in Ethiopic, there are lists of angels. Included are Rame'el and Ram'el (in the same list). There are occasional references, in various spellings, in other apocryphal manuscripts.
For modern uses of the angel's name and identity, see the article Ramiel.
JOPHIEL The angel Jophiel (Heb. יןפיאל, "beauty of God", "divine beauty"), also called Iophiel, Iofiel, Jofiel, Yofiel, Youfiel, Zophiel (Tsophiel צפיאל, "spy of God", "watchman of God") and Zuriel (Tsuriel צןדיאל, "my rock is God"), is a non-canonical archangel of wisdom, understanding, and judgment. She is listed as one of the Seven Archangels in Pseudo-Dionysian teachings.
KALQA'IL (Arabic) is an angel in Islam, who guards the entrance of the fifth heaven and governs the houris. He is also invoked in exorcist rites.
KERUBIEL /Also: Cherubiel, Cerubiel/ (The Flames Which Dance Around the Throne of God) is the name of an angel in the apocryphal Book of Enoch.
He is the principal regent who has reign over the Cherubim since Creation, and one of the most exalted princes of Heaven.
Kerubiel is about seven Heavens tall with a body made of burning coals that is covered with thousands of eyes. His face is made of fire, his eyes spark of light, and his lashes are lightning bolts. Fire spews forth with every word that he speaks and he is covered with wings from head to toe. Thunder, lightning, and earthquakes are his constant companions and the splendor of the Shekinah shines upon him. In Enoch's words, Kerubiel is "full of burning coals...there is a crown of holiness on his head... and the bow of the Shekinah is between his shoulders."
KOKABIEL (Aramaic:כןכבאל , Ancient Greek:Χωβαβιηλ ), also spelled Kôkabîêl, Kôkhabîêl, Kakabel, Kochbiel, Kokbiel, Kabaiel, or Kochab, considered the 'angel of the stars', is a fallen angel, the fourth mentioned of the 20 Watcher leaders of the 200 fallen angels in the Book of Enoch. His name is generally translated as "star of God", which is fitting since it has been said that Kokabiel taught astrology to his associates.
According to The Book of The Angel Raziel, Kokabiel is a holy angel; in other apocryphal lore, however, he is generally considered to be fallen. Kokabiel is said to command an army of 365,000 spirits.
KUSHIEL is one of seven angels of punishment along with Hutriel, Lahatiel, Makatiel, Puriel (also written Pusiel), Rogziel and Shoftiel.
As a "presiding angel of Hell," he is said to punish nations with a whip made of fire, although, along with the other angels of punishment, is reported in Second Book of Enoch 10:3 to dwell in the third heaven.
LAILAH The name Lailah is the same as the Hebrew word for "night" laylah לילה. The identification of the word "night" as the name of an angel originates with the interpretation of "Rabbi Yochanan" (possibly Yochanan ben Zakkai c. 30 - 90 CE) who read "At night [Abraham] and his servants deployed against them and defeated them" (JPS Genesis 14.14) as "by [an angel called] night" (Sanhedrin 96a).
MAALIK In Islamic belief, Maalik (Arabic: malik) denotes an angel in Hell/Purgatory (Arabic: jahannam) who administrates the Hellfire, assisted by 19 mysterious guards (Sura 74:30) known as Zabaniyya (az-zabānīya; Arabic:). In the Qur'an, Maalik is mentioned in Sura 43:77 as the chief of angels of hell. However the Qur'an itself does neither explain nor specifically describe the origin, purpose or character of Maalik, but Islamic traditions expands the depictions with extra-quranic narratives. Actually the earliest codices offer various alternative spellings of this word including malak meaning "angel", instead of a proper name.
MALAKBEL was a sun god worshiped in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra, frequently associated and worshiped with the moon god Aglibol as a party of a trinity involving the sky god Baalshamin.
Malakbel's name means "Angel of Bel", attesting to his mythological role as Bel's messenger and acolyte.
MARUT Harut and Marut (Arabic: Romanized: Hārūt wa-Mārūt) are two angels mentioned in Quran 2:102, who are described as having been present during the reign of Solomon (Sulayman), and as being located in Babylon. According to some narratives, those two angels were in the time of Idris. The Quran indicates that they were a trial for the people and through them the people were tested with sorcery. The names are probably etymologically related to Haurvatat and Ameretat, two Zoroastrian archangels.
MELEK TAUS (Kurdish: Tawusê Melek), also spelled Malik Tous, translated in English as Peacock Angel, is one of the central figures of Yazidi religion. In Yazidi creation stories, God created the world and entrusted it to the care of seven Holy Beings, often known as Angels or heft sirr ('the Seven Mysteries'), preeminent of which is Tawûsê Melek, the Peacock Angel. French anthropologist Zaïm Khenchelaoui, along with other scholars, believe that Melek Taus may correspond to the ancient Mesopotamian divinity of Tammuz.
Like many aspects of the secretive Yazidi religion, Tawûsê Melek is subject to varied and ambiguous interpretations. The "Yazidi Book of Revelation" (Ketêbâ Jelwa), a text generally believed to have been written by non-Yazidis (along with the "Yazidi Black Book") in the early twentieth-century but based on Yazidi oral tradition, even though a nineteenth-century translation of the text exists, is purported to contain the words of TawûsêMelek; it states that he allocates responsibilities, blessings and misfortunes upon humanity as he sees fit and that it is not for the race of Adam to question his choices.
METATRON (Hebrew:מטטךיו Meţaţron, מיטטךיו Məţaţrōn, מיטטךיו Mēţaţrōn, מיטטךיו Mīţaţrōn) or Mattatron (מטטךיו Maţţaţrōn) is an angel in Judeo-Islamic and Christian mysticist mythology mentioned in a few brief passages in the Aggadah and in mystical Kabbalistic texts within the Rabbinic literature. The figure forms one of the traces for the presence of dualist proclivities in the otherwise monotheistic visions of both the Tanakh and later Christian doctrine. The name Metatron is not mentioned in the Torah and how the name originated is a matter of debate. In Islamic tradition, he is also known as Mīţaţrūsh (Arabic), the angel of the veil. In folkloristic tradition, he is the highest of the angels and serves as the celestial scribe or "recording angel".
In Jewish apocrypha and early kabbalah, "Metatron" is the name that Enoch received after his transformation into an angel.
MICHAEL; (Hebrew pronunciation: [mixa'el]; Hebrew: מיכאל , romanized: Mîkha'el, lit. 'Who is like God?'; Greek: Μιχαηλ, romanized: Mikhaēl; Latin: Michahel; Coptic: Μιχαηλ; Arabic: Romanized: Mīkā'īl, Mīkāl or Mīkhā'īl) is an archangel in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and Lutheran systems of faith, he is called Saint Michael the Archangel and Saint Michael. In the Oriental Orthodox and Eastern Orthodox religions, he is called Saint Michael the Taxiarch. In other Protestant churches, he is simply called Archangel Michael.
Michael is mentioned three times in the Book of Daniel. The idea that Michael was the advocate of the Jews became so prevalent that, in spite of the rabbinical prohibition against appealing to angels as intermediaries between God and his people, Michael came to occupy a certain place in the Jewish liturgy.
In the New Testament, Michael leads God's armies against Satan's forces in the Book of Revelation, where during the war in heaven he defeats Satan. In the Epistle of Jude, Michael is specifically referred to as "the archangel Michael". Sanctuaries to Michael appeared in the 4th century, when he was first seen as a healing angel, and then over time as a protector and the leader of the army of God against the forces of evil.
In ancient myths he is represented by the solar gods such as Helios, Apollo, Ra and Lugh.In some of the early matriarchal societies the Sun was regarded as feminine, a belirf that survived in the Egyptian pantheon as the Solar/Fire goddess Sekhmet and in celtic myths as the Fire Goddess Bridget.
Archangel Michael represents the life force. In all cultures the sun represents the creative principle, whether masculine feminine or both. Michael's magical image is of a young man wearing a golden cloak. His amber colored hair streams back from a strong face and his right hand rests upon the burnished hilt of a golden sword.
The overall impression of this magickal image is one of controlled spiritual power.
The Archangel Michael can be invoked in all matters associated with career, sports, personal finance, ambition, bureaucracy, officialdom, and the health of the physical body. In common with Raphael he is a healing angel.
MORONI (/moʊ'roʊnaɪ/) is an angel stated by Joseph Smith to have visited him on numerous occasions, beginning on September 21, 1823. According to Smith, the angel was the guardian of the golden plates, buried in the hill Cumorah near Smith's home in western New York; Latter Day Saints believe the plates were the source material for the Book of Mormon. An important figure in the theology of the Latter Day Saint movement, Moroni is featured prominently in Mormon architecture and art. Besides Smith, the Three Witnesses and several other witnesses also reported that they saw Moroni in visions in 1829.
Moroni is thought by Latter Day Saints to be the same person as a Book of Mormon prophet-warrior named Moroni, who was the last to write in the golden plates. The book states that Moroni buried them before he died after a great battle between two pre-Columbian civilizations. After he died, he became an angel who was tasked with guarding the golden plates and directing Smith to their location in the 1820s. According to Smith, he then returned the golden plates to Moroni after they were translated and, as of 1838, Moroni still had the plates in his possession.

In Jewish legend, Moses encountered Nuriel in the 2nd heaven, when he issues from the side of Chesed (Mercy), Nuriel manifests in the form of an eagle, an eagle that, when issuing from the side of Geburah (Strength), is Uriel.
According to the Zohar, Nuriel governs Virgo. He is 300 parasangs (approx. 5.6 km) tall and has an army of 50 myriads of angels (= 500,000) "all fashioned out of water and fire." The height of Nuriel is exceeded only by the Erelim, by the watchers, by Af and Hemah, and of course by Metatron, who is the tallest hierarch in heaven. Nuriel is also effective as a charm for warding off evil. His name is found engraved on oriental and Hebrew amulets, notably those worn by pregnant women.
Outside of Judaism, in the Syriac Book of Protection, Nuriel is characterized as a "spellbinding power" and is grouped with Michael, Shamsiel, Seraphiel, and other great angels. In gnostic lore, Nuriel is one of seven subordinates to Jehuel, prince of fire.

PENEMUE (deriv. from Heb. פנימי, penimi - "the inside") is a watcher in Enochian lore. He is a curer of stupidity in man, mentioned in Bereshith Rabba. As an angel associated with Abraxiel (Abraxas), Penemue was also likely of the order of healing angels called the Labbim.
The name of the fourth is Penemue: he discovered to the children of men bitterness and sweetness; And pointed out to them every secret of their wisdom.
He taught men to understand writing, and the use of ink and paper.
Therefore numerous have been those who have gone astray from every period of the world, even to this day.
For men were not born for this, thus with pen and with ink to confirm their faith;
Since they were not created, except that, like the angels, they might remain righteous and pure. Nor would death, which destroys everything, have effected [sic] them;
But by this their knowledge they perish, and by this also its power consumes them.
PHANUEL is the name given to the fourth angel who stands before God in the Book of Enoch (ca. 300 BC), after the angels Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel. Other spellings of Phanuel (Hebrew: פנואל Phənū'êl) include Paniel, Peniel, Penuel, Fanuel, Orfiel, and Orphiel. His name means "the face of God".

In Enoch II, God commands Pravuil to bring Enoch writing materials so he could document his journey through the heavens. Charles Russell Coulter and Patricia Turner argue that Pravuil is a Hebrew recasting of the Mesopotamian deity Nabu.
PURIEL (also Pyriel, Puruel, Pusiel and Pyruel and Purel) is an angel who appears in the apocryphal work of the Testament of Abraham, the 2nd century apocalyptic tale of Abraham's journey to heaven.

RADURIEL: As a higher heavens realms Adjudication Registrar, Archangel Raduriel (Radweriel) was a Cosmic Chronicles Recording Angel who was notably gifted with a powerful bounty of co-creative poetic wisdom. She was also the Mentoring Counsel angel of the poetry and song muses, as well as, the celestial choral singers.
RAGUEL (also Raguil, Rasuil, Rufael, Raquel, Rakul, Reuel, and Akrasiel) is an angel mainly of the Judaic traditions. He is considered the Angel of Justice. His name means "Friend of God".
Raguel is almost always referred to as the archangel of justice, fairness, harmony, vengeance and redemption. He is also sometimes known as the archangel of speech. In the Book of Enoch, cap. XXIII, Raguel is one of the seven angels whose role is to watch. His number is 6, and his function is to take vengeance on the world of the luminaries who have transgressed God's laws.
Raguel's duties have remained the same across Jewish and Christian traditions. Much like a sheriff or constable, Raguel's purpose has always been to keep fallen angels and demons in check, delivering heinous judgment upon any that over-step their boundaries. He has been known to destroy wicked spirits, and cast fallen angels into Hell (called Gehenna in the Hebrew Old Testament and called Tartarus in the Greek New Testament).
Raguel is not mentioned in the canonical writings of the Bible. However, in 2 Enoch, which is generally considered non-canonical, the patriarch Enoch was carried as a mortal to and from Heaven by the angels Raguel and Sariel.
Possible historical references to a similar figure from other cultures can be found in Babylonian culture as "Rag" (some translations say Ragumu), and in Sumerian as "Rig" which means to talk or speech. Thus, these similar characters represented balance in those cultures as well.
RÂMÎÊL (Aramaic: ךעמאנל, Hebrew: ךעמיאל, Greek: Ραμιη&lambda, Azerbaijani: Ramil), or Remiel, is both a fallen Watcher and an archangel in the apocryphal Book of Enoch. Ramiel means "thunder of God" from the Hebrew elements ra'am and El, "God".
RAPHAEL (/'ræfiəl/; Hebrew: ךפאל, translit. Rāfā'ēl, lit. 'It is God who heals', 'God Heals', 'God, Please Heal'; Ancient Greek: Ραφαηλ, Coptic: ραφαΗλ, Ethiopic (Ge'ez) is an archangel responsible for healing in the traditions of most Abrahamic religions. Not all branches of these religions consider the identification of Raphael to be canonical.
In Christianity, Raphael is generally associated with an unnamed angel mentioned in the Gospel of John, who stirs the water at the healing pool of Bethesda. Raphael is recognized as an angel in the doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, as he is briefly mentioned in the Doctrine and Covenants. Raphael is an important figure in the Book of Tobit, which is accepted as canonical by Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and some Anglicans.
In Islam, Raphael is the fourth major angel; and in the Muslim tradition, he is known as Israfil. Though unnamed in the Quran, hadith identifies Israfil with the angel of Quran 6:73. Within Islamic eschatology, Israfil is traditionally attributed to a trumpet, which is poised at his lips, and when God so commands he shall be ready to announce the Day of Resurrection.
Raphael is the planetary ruler of Mercury. He was known to the ancient Greeks as Hermes, to the Romans as Mercuri who was the messenger of the Gods, to the Celts as Ogma, to the Egyptians and Thoth (pronounced Tehuti) and to the Northern Europeans as Odin or Woden.
The magical image of Raphael is a young man clothed as a pilgrim or traveller. He wears a yellow cloak, a broad rimmed hat with a feather in it, winged snadals, and carries a staff entwined with two snakes (caduceus), the symbol of the divine healer.
Raphael should be invoked in rituals involving healing, communications, travel, young people, education, business contracts, commercial selling, writing and self~expression. As Hermes is also the god of thieves his aid can be requested to help find stolen goods or lost property. On his highest level Raphael represents the spiritual guide or mentor who helps the person who is just beginning his/her journey on the occult path.
RAZIEL (Hebrew: ךזיאל "secret of God") is an angel within the teachings of Jewish mysticism (of the Kabbalah of Judaism) who is the "Keeper of Secrets" and the "Angel of Mysteries". He is associated with the sephirah Chokhmah (the second of ten) in Beri'ah, one of the Four Worlds of Kabbalistic theory.
RIKBIEL is the ruler of the divine chariot. He is the chief of the wheels. Therefore, he is the ruler of the Cherubs. And he is a Cherubim himself. Guardian Angel Rikbiel is a very powerful angel. He is one of the most powerful celestial beings. Therefore, he is even more strong then Metatron.
SABRIEL is the holy angel of miracles and impossible healing. He is believed to be one of the main 7 Archangels. Also, he is the ruler of the choir of angels called Tarshishim. This choir is the equivalent of Virtues. Sabriel's healing crystals are Geranium and Bloodstone. Using these crystals in your prayers and meditations will bring the archangel closer.
SACHIEL is an archangel of the order of cherubim. The meaning of his name is given as "the covering of God". The name 'Sachiel' originally occurs in the late 1500s grimoire called The Heptameron.
In the early mentions of that angel, its name is spelled differently: In the late-1200s grimoire The Oathbound Book of Honorius, its name is spelled 'Satquiel'. That spelling was taken from the early-1200s Jewish occult book Sefer Raziel HaMalakh ("book of Raziel the angel"). The Sefer Raziel is highly inconsistent in its spelling of the angel's name, which is therein spelled twice as 'Satquel', three times as 'Satquiel', twice as 'Saquiel', and once as 'Sachquiel'. It is that last spelling from which derives the later spelling 'Sachiel' from The Heptameron. The wide variation of spellings of the name in the Sefer Raziel is in large part the result of the fact that the author created the angel by conflating together two different angels from the 400s CE Jewish book 3 Enoch. The Sefer Raziel spellings 'Satquel' and 'Satquiel' are derived from the 3 Enoch angel Zadkiel, which is also spelled 'Shatqiel' and 'Shataqiel'. The Sefer Raziel spelling 'Sachquiel' is derived from the 3 Enoch angel Sahaquiel, which is also spelled 'Shachaqiel' and 'Shahaqiel'. Those 2 angels were first discussed in 3 Enoch.
Sachiel is associated with the zodiacal sign Sagittarius, the weekday Thursday, wealth, and charity. While in most sources Sachiel presides over Thursday, others do assign him to Monday or Friday. All associate him with the planet Jupiter; as such, in new age angel lore he can be invoked for matters involving money, finance, law, politics, and religion. His sigil appears in Francis Barrett's The Magus, an early nineteenth century compendium of occult lore. It also appears in the 16th century treatise, The Complete Book of Magic Science.
SAHAQUIEL is called the "Angel of the Sky", listed as one of the seven great archangels in the Third Book of Enoch from the Apocrypha of the Hebrew Bible, described as "the guardian of the fourth heaven ... prince of a heavenly host ... attended by 496,000 myriads of minstering angels." Sahaquiel literally means Ingenuity of God.
SAMAEL (Hebrew: םמאל Sammā'ēl, "Venom of God", "Poison of God", or "Blindness of God"; rarely "Smil", "Samil", or "Samiel"; Arabic: Samsama'il or Samail) is an archangel in Talmudic and post-Talmudic lore, a figure who is the accuser (Ha-Satan), seducer, and destroyer (Mashhit). Although many of his functions resemble the Christian notion of Satan, to the point of being sometimes identified as a fallen angel, in others he is not necessarily evil, since his functions are also regarded as resulting in good, such as destroying sinners.
He is considered in Talmudic texts to be a member of the heavenly host with often grim and destructive duties. One of Samael's greatest roles in Jewish lore is that of the main angel of death and the head of satans. Although he condones the sins of man, he remains one of God's servants. He appears frequently in the story of Garden of Eden and engineered the fall of Adam and Eve with a snake in writings during the Second Temple period. However, the serpent is not a form of Samael, but a beast he rode like a camel. In some traditions he is also believed to be the father of Cain as well as the partner of Lilith.
As guardian angel and prince of Rome, he is the archenemy of Israel. By the beginning of Jewish culture in Europe, Samael had been established as a representative of Christianity, due to his identification with Rome.
In some Gnostic cosmologies, Samael's role as source of evil became identified with the Demiurge, the creator of the material world. Although probably both accounts originate from the same source, the Gnostic development differs from the Jewish development of Samael, in which Samael is merely an angel and servant of God.
Samael is the Archangel of Mars. In pagan times he was associated with the gods of war such as Ares, Mars and Tiw. He represents the destructive aspects of the life force, which when channeled correctly, can be used for constructive purposes.
The magical image of Samael is a tall man wearing a red cloak. His hair is held in place by a gold band on which is engraved a pentagram or five pointed star. His strong hands rest on the hilt of a broadsword whose blade is decorated with runic sigils.
Samael can be invoked for anything to do with acts of physical courage or machinery. He grants the ability of manual dexterity, craftsmanship, and protects against danger from fire and violence.
SAMYAZA (Aramaic:שמיחזה ; Greek: Σεμιαζα Arabic: Samiarush), also Shemhazai, Azza or Ouza, is a fallen angel or Sethite of apocryphal Abrahamic traditions that ranked in the heavenly hierarchy as one of the Watchers.
SANDALPHON (Hebrew:סנדלפוך ; Greek:Σαγδαλφωγ;) is an archangel in Jewish and Christian writings. Sandalphon figures prominently in the mystical literary traditions of Rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity, notably in the Midrash, Talmud, and Kabbalah.In islam he is a angel who dwells in the Fourth heavens.
SARATHIEL or SERATHIEL (Coptic:ςαραθιηλ ) is an angel in Oriental Orthodox church angelology, especially in Coptic Orthodox church, and is often included in lists as being one of the seven archangels.
SARIEL (Aramaic: שךיאל, Greek:Σαριηλ , Coptic: ςογριηλ "Prince of God" "God's Prince") is an angel, mainly from Judaic tradition. Other possible versions of his name are Suriel, Suriyel (in some Dead Sea Scrolls translations), Seriel, Sauriel, Saraqael, Sarakiel, Suruel, Surufel, and Sourial.
In 1 Enoch, there is a fallen Watcher named Säraquyael and Säräqael one of the seven holy angels who is "of eternity and trembling". In Kabbalistic lore, he is one of seven angels of the earth. Origen identified Sariel as one of seven angels who are primordial powers. In Gnosticism, Sariel is invoked for his protective powers. He is commemorated in the calendar of the Coptic Orthodox Church on 27 Tobi in Coptic calendar.
SELAPHIEL Saint Selaphiel the Archangel or Saint Sealtiel, Selatiel (Aramaic עלחיאל Tzelathiel "Prayer of God", Heb.שאלחיאל Shealtiel), sometimes identified with Salathiel from the Second Book of Esdras. He is one of the seven archangels in the Byzantine Catholic and Eastern Orthodox traditions.
SERAPHIEL (Hebrew שךפיאל, meaning "Prince of the High Angelic Order") is the name of an angel in the apocryphal Book of Enoch.
Protector of Metatron, Seraphiel holds the highest rank of the Seraphim with the following directly below him, Jehoel. In some texts, he is referred to as the Angel of Silence. Eponymously named as chief of the Seraphim, one of several for whom this office is claimed, Seraphiel is one of eight judge angels and a prince of the Merkabah. In 3 Enoch, Seraphiel is described as an enormous, brilliant angel as tall as the seven heavens with a face like the face of angels and a body like the body of eagles. He is beautiful like lightning and the light of the morning star. As chief of the seraphim, he is committed to their care and teaches them songs to sing for the glorification of God. In magical lore, Seraphiel is one of the rulers of Tuesday and also the planet Mercury. He is invoked from the North.
Israfil could likely be his counterpart in Islam, one of the Archangels and an angel of music with a similar name of the same meaning.
SHAMSIEL (Aramaic:שמשיאל , Greek:Σεμιηλ ), also spelled Samsâpêêl, Shamshel, Shashiel or Shamshiel, was the 16th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels that are mentioned in an ancient work called the Book of Enoch. The name means "sun of God", which is fitting since it has been said that Shamsiel taught men the signs of the sun during the days of Jared or Yered. Shamash (the Babylonian sun god) may share some mythological basis with Shamsiel.
Shamsiel is said to lead 365 legions of lesser angels in the Zohar and it is said that he was assigned by God to guard the Garden of Eden after Adam and Eve were expelled; comparable to cherubim. There is apparently some disagreement in sources as to whether Shamsiel is a fallen angel; he is still regarded as the ruler of the 4th Heaven.
SIDRIEL - also known as one of the princes of Heaven. He is often confused with Pazriel and Sabrael. Archangel Sidriel is the divine angel who governs the first Heaven. But he is not the only ruler. The other governors of the First Heaven being Archangel Gabriel, Sabrael and Asrulyu. Sidriel is also one of the 7 main archangels of God. Being one of the most powerful angels ever created.
TAMIEL (or Tumiel; Aramaic: תומיאל, Ancient Greek: Ταμιηλ), also spelled Tâmîêl, is a fallen angel, the fifth mentioned of the 20 watcher leaders of the 200 fallen angels in the Book of Enoch. Tamiel is also called either Kasdaye (also Kasdeja, from Aramaic כשדי kasday-"Chaldean", "inhabitant of Chaldea", "astrologer") or Kasyade (prob. compd. כסהof kasah-"to conceal" + יד yad-"hand", "power"; lit. "covered hand", "hidden power") in the Book of Enoch, Chapter 69.
Michael Knibb lists the translation of Tamiel as "God is Perfect" or "Perfection of God" (the combination of tamiym and El-God). Tamiel was attributed as a teacher of astronomy (Enoch 8:7). She also taught "the children of men all of the wicked strikes of spirits, [the strikes of] demons, and the strikes of the embryo in the womb so that it may pass away (abortion), and [the strikes of the soul], the bites of the serpent, and the strikes which befall through the noontide heat, [which is called] the son of the serpent named Taba'et (meaning male)" during the days of Noah, not the days of Jared.
TEMELUCHUS (probably a garbled transliteration of the Greek Telémakhos; literally, "far-away fighter") is the leader of the tartaruchi, the chief angel of torment (and possibly Satan himself), according to the extracanonical Apocalypse of Paul. In addition to being described as "a merciless angel, all fire," Temeluchus (also called Tartaruchus) has the surprising designation as a caretaking angel set over children at birth or during infancy.
He is mentioned in chapter 15 and chapter 18 as God is rendering judgment:
15 [...] Just is the judgment of God, and there is no respect of persons with God, for whoever has done his mercy he will have mercy on him, and who has not had mercy, neither will God have mercy on him. Let him therefore be delivered to the angel Temeluchus that is set over the torments, and let him cast him into the outer darkness where is weeping and gnashing of teeth, and let him be there until the great day of judgment.
18 [...] Let that soul be delivered into the hands of Temeluchus, and he must be taken down into hell. Let him take him into the lower prison and let him be cast into torments and be left there until the great day of judgment.
In chapter 34, he is seen torturing the soul of a gluttonous and lustful priest:
34 Yet again I looked upon the river of fire, and I saw there an old man who was being dragged along, immersed up to the knees. And Temeluchus came with a great fork of fire with which he pierced the entrails of that old man.
In chapter 40, he is seen tormenting men and women who committed abortion and infanticide:
40 [...] I looked and I saw other men and women upon a spit of fire, and beasts tearing at them, and they were not suffered to say: Lord, have mercy on us. And I saw the angel of torments Temeluchus laying most fierce torments upon them saying: Acknowledge the Son of God. For it was told you before, but when the scriptures of God were read to you, you paid no attention: where the judgment of God is just, for your evil doings have taken hold of you, and brought you into these torments.
His mention in chapter 40 of the Apocalypse of Paul is foreshadowed in the earlier, fragmentary Apocalypse of Peter:
And all they that are in torment will say with one voice: have mercy upon us, for now we know the judgment of God, which he declared to us before, and we didn't believe. And the angel Temeluchus will come and chastise them with yet greater torment, and say to them: Now do you repent, when it is no longer the time for repentance, and nothing of life remains.
Temeluchus' name is sometimes rendered as Aftemelouchos, Aftemeloukhos, Tartaruchus, Tatirokos, Temelouchos, and T'ilimyakos.
He appears again in 2 Meqabyan 12:13 (considered canonical in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church), just as the evil king Tsirutsaydan is proclaiming his own immortality:
And before he finished speaking this thing, the Angel of Death whose name is called T'ilimyakos alighted and struck his heart. He died in that hour. As he didn't praise his Creator, he was separated from his beautiful lifestyle and perished, arising from the abundance of his arrogance and the evil of his works.
TENNIN , which may include tenshi , ten no tsukai (, lit. heavenly messenger), hiten (lit. flying heaven) and the specifically female tennyo are spiritual beings found in Japanese Buddhism that are similar to western angels, nymphs or fairies. They were seemingly imported from Chinese Buddhism, which was itself influenced by the concepts of heavenly beings found in Indian Buddhism and Chinese Taoism.
TURIEL (or Tûrêl; Aramaic: טוךיאל Greek: Τουριηλ ) is a fallen Watcher in the ancient apocryphal text known as the Book of Enoch. In later translations, he is one of the 20 leaders of 200 fallen angels, mentioned eighteenth. The name is believed to originate from tuwr "rock" and El "God", meaning "rock of God", while the translation taken from M. A. Knibb's work on the Ethiopic Book of Enoch is either "Mountain of God" or "Rock of God".
URIEL (/'jʊəriəl/; Hebrew: אוךיאל "El/God is my light", Standard Hebrew Uri'el, Tiberian Hebrew 'Ûrî'ēl; Greek: Ουριηλ Coptic: ογ&rhoιηλ Italian: Uriele; Ge'ez and Amharic: 'Ura'ēl or 'Uri'ēl) is one of the archangels of post-exilic rabbinic tradition, and also of certain Christian traditions.
In apocryphal, kabbalistic, and occult works, Uriel has been equated (or confused) with Urial, Nuriel, Uryan, Jeremiel, Vretil, Sariel, Suriel, Puruel, Phanuel, Jacob, Azrael, and Raphael.
UZIEL (or Usiel) is an archangel mentioned in some variants of 3 Enoch (but Ouza in others), in a variant of Sefer Raziel HaMalakh, in Johannes Trithemius's Steganographia, and in John Milton's Paradise Lost.
VEHUEL means The Great and Exalted God (Deus Magnus et Excelsius). Also, he is one of the Elohims (Jewish) and Principalities (Christian). Vehuel is the angel of elevation to greatness, wisdom and grandeur. He serves, exalts and glorifies God.
When the aspiring magician invokes any of these planetary forces he should remember that they are personifications of the archetypal energies associated with each planet. These Archetypal energies can be descriped by their planetary properties
