12 Archangels: Names, Meanings, Traits, and Their Connection with Zodiac Signs and Birth Dates


12 Archangels: Their Names, Meanings, Traits, And Their Connection With Zodiac Signs And Birth Dates

You were guided here to learn about the 12 archangels and their connection with zodiac signs. Although the Universe works in ways you cannot fully see, you know – in the depth of your soul – that there is a spiritual realm around you with divine beings always helping you.  When you were born, all the stars in the Universe were in complete alignment and everything was harmonically orchestrated for you to arrive on earth. Your birth date says a lot about your personality and can be a predictor of your destiny. You know about astrology as what you have read in magazines and other media sources. Mainstream media focuses on "solar astrology" which refers only to your Sun sign and popularly known as your birth month. For example, if you were born on March 5, your Sun sign is Pisces. But focusing on your birth month only provides a hint of your personality, and the misunderstanding is deciding that the Sun sign defines the whole you.

In astrology, your entire birth chart, also known as the natal chart, tells the real story of your natural personality and provides an accurate portrait of you as an individual. This chart shows the position of the planets and astrological houses at the time you were born. Astrology can help you understand your personality traits, but it can only explain to a certain extent why you act the way you are. Remember, you are a soul in a human body. And as a soul, you can connect to an angel for Divine wisdom and direction on your human journey.

American author Doreen Virtue and Astrologist Yasmin Boland co-authored Angel Astrology 101 which combines astrology with angelology, the study of angels.  They describe the specialty of 12 archangels and their traits associated with each astrological sign. Hence, the month in which you were born is associated with an archangel.

What Are Archangels?

Archangels are chief messengers of the One Universal Source and they help every one of all different beliefs and paths.  While they are here to serve everyone, they also oversee your personal guardian angel that is here to serve only you. Your guardian angel is present wherever you are, but archangels can be present in more than one place at one time. Because of this, you can trust that archangels and your personal guardian angel can be with you collectively in any time frame.

As a starting point, a list of the 12 sun signs and their association with the archangels was created as an easy guide to help you call upon the archangel associated with your birthday.

Each archangel has a specific trait or talent. For this reason, specific archangels can help with specific requests. Well-known archangels include Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel. Call on Archangel Michael if you are in need of protection. Call on Archangel Raphael to heal health issues for yourself or others.  Call on Archangel Gabriel when you need help communicating an important message to the world.

Significantly, although each archangel has a specific role and trait associated with each astrological sign and birth date, your astrological sign and birth date do not restrict you to only one archangel. For help, angels have no boundaries, and you can connect with any of God's angels for wisdom and soul direction at any time and in any situation.

In the chart below, take a look at the names and meanings of the 12 archangels and their connection with the zodiac signs  – listed by "Tropical" dates which are aligned by the changing seasons of earth.

How To Connect To An Angel Or Archangel?

To start, remember that you have a personal guardian angel protecting you since you took human form. As a soul in a newborn body, God gifted you with an angel's protection at birth, and God's gift remains with you in this time on earth.

Even when you are unaware of this divine protection, your guardian angel's job is to always guide you in making the right decisions. But because you have the freedom of choice to make decisions, you choose what you believe is suitable for your existence. And whatever you decide, you understand that all your actions have consequences that manifest in your life.

As a result, if you need help with an unpleasant situation that manifests in your life, you can ask your guardian angel or request another specific angel to support and guide you through that particular time.

Whether you choose your guardian angel or another particular angel, ask for help in any way you feel comfortable, and be ready to receive it. All you have to do is invite and welcome a particular angel into your life. Your invitation is a signal that you are open to receive helpful information and divine clues. But ultimately, it is up to you to accept and follow your angel's guidance into God's Truth.

Below are WILLOW SOUL's 4 basic steps to receive God's wisdom by connecting with a particular archangel or any of God's pure angels.

1.  Find a Comfortable and Quiet Place.

Find a comfortable and quiet place to connect with God intentionally. When you have a willful desire, your spiritual connection will transpire.

2.  Handwrite Your Message.

With a pen and paper, handwrite the following message to the Divine (the message can be modified):

God, I remember that I am your child, and I inherited your wisdom to handle life's trials.
I am wise to recognize your guidance in all forms and welcome Archangel Michael's help and protection through life's storms.

3.  Express Your Message Verbally.

In this silence, with your eyes closed or opened wide, use the power of your soul and mind to whisper your handwritten message to the Divine:

God, I remember that I am your child, and I inherited your wisdom to handle life's trials.
I am wise to recognize your guidance in all forms and welcome Archangel Michael's help and protection through life's storms.

4.  Keep Your Message Private.

Conserve your energy by keeping your handwritten message to yourself and putting it away with care.

During this time, it is also wise to focus on creating positive thoughts for you and everyone around you. By doing so, your positive thoughts radiate a healing energy that blesses you FIRST, then others, and eventually, the healing power returns to you as more blessings. Simply put, the healing energy you send out today will return to you as powerful blessings tomorrow.

In this case, the healing energy starts with you, and this powerful blessing returns to you as answers to your questions through your thoughts, your dreams, other people's thoughts and messages, or other divine signs randomly appearing in your life.

Noticeably, when you are calm and observant in every moment, it will be easier for you to recognize all the clues and answers that appear in your life's present.

Keep in mind that everything happens for your benefit in life. Every experience is a stepping stone to understanding who you are. The more you try to understand the world and yourself with astrology, birth charts, and other spiritual teachings, the more you realize there is much more to learn.

All knowledge is helpful, but you understand that you must use your wisdom to decide what information is worth learning. One day, you will accumulate all knowledge. But until then, you are being guided to learn what you can today so you can wisely help others find their way.

Remember, you were born into this world with your unique talents to contribute to humankind and make the earth a better place. It is what you are adding to the world that matters.

In this way, let your specialty emerge on the world's stage. Whenever you are unsure about your role, just remember to play your part well. And by doing your best, you are strengthening your talents and attracting the next scene with the best opportunities to show up on your path.

This is why when you show the world your best, the best will show up for you.
