Our resident Angel Expert Chrissie Astell reveals the cosmic connections our guardians have with the stars
Did you know that we have an angel for each day of the year, an angel for each month, an angel for each season, and there is an angel guardian for each sign of the zodiac? You might think that sounds like an awful lot of angels, but in some faiths, there are even more. For example, in Judaism, the Talmud states that there is an angel bending over every blade of grass whispering ‘grow, grow’. So if there’s an essence or spiritual energy for everything on earth, then why shouldn’t that include an angel too? Here, we have a look at these 12 angels of the zodiac, examine their role, and how they help to raise the consciousness of those born in each of the 12 constellations that affect our birth sign characteristics.
Honouring the signs
Firstly, we need to understand that these particular angels, or archangels, are guardians of the placement of stars within each sign, and of the heavenly bodies passing through them at any given time, such as the moon, Mars, Venus, Mercury and so on. If you’re aware of your personal astrological chart, you will know that these planets affect our moods, life choices, and more. But if you don’t have a chart or any knowledge of your astrology, it doesn’t really matter. Angelic connection is far more powerful, you can easily find out more online. You may already know that the signs are divided into four elements: air, fire, earth and water. These are then grouped again into the three qualities of cardinal, fixed and mutable, these indicate how well the element of your sign functions within all of creation.
• The cardinal signs are the initiators. They have the drive to push forward new ideas and begin projects.
• The fixed signs are the practical people who make the project happen.
• The mutable signs are those who take the finished project out into the world.
