Out there, in nowadays' astrology land, there are so many theories and attempts to understand astrological influences. Modern man disputes them ad infinitum, bringing up issues of free will and destiny, in many ways
One very interesting theory I came across lately is the correlation between angels and astrology. Reading a book written by Terah Cox: "Birth Angels: Fulfilling Your Life Purpose and Potential with the 72 Angels of the Tree of Life", I became aware of some of these correlations. They are particularly interesting since we all know that astrology is it is not an abstract theory, an intellectual exercise or some mathematics of the universe, but a living science, the breath of the cosmos. This is why, it is so important to be reminded that astrology should be an active connection to the higher energies and spiritual beings.
At the basic level, the universe is all objective. Think at Newton's rules for the physical world. As we advance in understanding towards more subtle levels of science, the universe becomes more and more subjective. In quantum physics, the scientist is part of the experiment. At that level, there isn't anymore a fixed reality to be measured or studied.
In astrology, as we are looking forward to reaching a more subtle level of understanding, we may find the angelic correlation to astrology quite useful.
The tradition says that there are 72 Angels or Divine Energies, in correlation with specific astrology elements such as zodiac degrees, signs, planets or units of time. These energies, emerging from the Divine, can help us greatly to overcome our limitations and extend the reach of our free will. The Angels do this by activating in us the Divine Attributes that they embody.
We often refer to these Angels as Guardian Angels, Divine Messenger, Emissaries of Light, Bestowers of Grace or Bringers of Miracles. The 72 Angels are the inhabitants of the Nine Angelic Choirs of the tree of Life. A good metaphor by Omraam Michael Aivanhov, an illuminated master of Bulgarian origin who lived in France in the 20th century, is that of a transformer: the Angels would represent an electrical device that decreases a high-voltage source (Divinity) so that it can be plugged into a low-voltage receptor (humans). Conversely, when we invoke, pray or appeal to the Divine, the Angels serve as "amplifiers" to transmit our small and finite communication to the vast and infinite Divine.
Terah Cox further explains in her book the angelic - astrological correlations, although not correctly from an astrological point of view. However, for a person initiated in astrology, the truth is quite obvious.This is how this should be understood:
Each angel governs over a 5-degree span in the zodiac, corresponding to the time when the transiting Sun travels through that area. The Angel ruling the 5-degree zodiac area of the natal Sun is called the Incarnation Angel and has the strongest influence on our lives, especially on our physical/existential nature.
In addition, each Angel rules 5 separate degrees of the zodiac (in quintile aspect to each other). There is a different degree-Angel for that. The Angel corresponding the natal Sun is called the Heart Angel and has influence on our emotional nature.
Next, there is the Intellect Angel influencing our mental processes, intellect. This kind of Angel is associated with 20 minutes intervals of time of each day, starting at midnight. So, all 72 Angels have a correspondence with 20 minutes, 72x20=1440 minutes, which equals 24 hours. Obviously to me, the intervals starting at midnight is highly questionable, since the midnight is a conventional moment, depending on the time zone and daylight saving time. Therefore, I presume that they actually start at LMT midnight, which is the moment when the Sun is conjunct the local IC (Immum Coeli), 4th house cusp.
These three Angels, the Incarnation Angel, the Heart Angel and the Intellect Angel, represent our Birth Angels, which have most influence and connection with us. An Angel is strongest during its days and times of dominion; therefore it is especially effective to work with them during those periods. It may help us maximize particular qualities and functions in our physical/existential nature (Incarnation Days), our emotional nature (Heart Days) or our intellectual nature (Intellect Days). This way, as we become more connected/inhabited by the Angelic presences, our clarity and wholeness increase until we become reflections of the Angels themselves.
In addition to these angelic - astrological connections, there are sign & planet correlations, such as: Vehuiah is associated with Aries/Uranus, Jeliel with Aries/Saturn and so on.
As a conclusion, I think that this is a very important field of study, which can enhance greatly astrology practice, by opening a direct path from the astrological chart to the spiritual worlds.
An example: Mercury at the time of writing this article was transiting the area of the zodiac governed by the Angel Anauel, who, according to the book, establishes communication between inner and outer worlds, helps to bring wisdom and spiritual values to the individual as well as to the global community and abolishes old beliefs that divide and alienate.
