The Kabbalah is a very old Jewish Mystical tradition. Why is it said that there are 72 Angels in the Kabbalah? What are their roles and what is their connection to the 4 elements and the 12 astrological signs?
What is the Kabbalah?
It is said that the Kabbalah was communicated to Adam, the first man on Earth, by an Angel: Raziel.
It is also said to hold the unwritten part of the Laws that were transmitted to Men by Moses.
According to the Kabbalistic tradition, God’s name is composed of 72 letters. Each of these letters is represented by an Angel, hence 72 Angels in total; they are the 72 expressions of the divine Breath.
72, angelical number par excellence
In Kabbalistic tradition, 72 is looked upon as the Number of perfect Completeness. And the 72 Angels composing it are like the rungs of a celestial ladder leading to the divine.
Elsewhere, it is clearly said that these 72 Angels have been assigned by the Creator and Master of the Universe to serve men. The goal being to prompt them to fulfill his cosmic schemes in everyone.
The Angels of the Kabbalah, alchemy and astrology
The Angels rule over the 4 traditional Alchemical elements, i.e.: Fire, Water, Air and Earth. As a result, each group of Angels to which one of these four elements is attributed governs the 3 zodiac signs related to it.
- 18 Angels rule over Fire
And, as a result, over the Aries, Leo and Sagittarius signs.
Their field of action is initiative, imagination, creativity, and projects. In fact, it is action in its every form. But it is also faith, self-sacrifice, evolution and personal transformation.
- 18 Angels rule over Water
And, as a result, over the Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces signs.
Their field of action is love, friendship, family as well as feelings, desires and passion. They lead to getting a grip on all the feelings resulting from negative emotions such as sadness, hatred or rancor.
- 18 Angels rule over the Air element
And, as a result, over the Gemini, Libra and Aquarius signs.
Their field of action is intelligence and everything that is related to its practical aspects. But it also involves study, exchanges, communication and everything that calls on both a logical mind and perspicacity.
- 18 Angels rule over Earth
And, as a result, the Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn signs.
Their field of action is the material world and everything that comes from it, namely: your situation, business, constructions but also money in its every aspect: gains, investments, inheritance, enrichment, prosperity.
The usefulness of praying to the Angels of your sign
The Angels linked to one of the four elements will manifest the full extent of their power for the 3 signs that depend on them. It will therefore be beneficial to pray to them and ask for their Help in one of the fields of action corresponding to the element in question, when its zodiacal manifestation takes place.
- For example: people under the signs ruled by the Angels of the element Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) will call on them to stack the odds of winning at games in their favor, succeed in business affairs, make a profitable investment or be promoted…
