12 Archangels: Their 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 big 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. You are much more complex than that, and that’s where “angelology” or the study of angels comes in.

American author Doreen Virtue and Astrologist Yasmin Boland co-authored Angel Astrology 101 which combines astrology with angelology.  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.

List of 12 Archangels for the 12 Months of the Year

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.

Although each archangel has a specific role and trait that are matched with each astrological sign, it is important to understand that you can call upon any archangel at any time for help 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 Do You Ask For An Angel's Help?

Whenever you feel that you need guidance or assistance with a problem, ask for an angel's help in any way that you feel comfortable, and be ready to receive it. They are all around you and they are just waiting to help you in any life situation, but you have to give them permission to intervene. The answers can come through dreams, your own thoughts, messages from other people, or serendipitous signs that randomly show up in your life when you least expect it.  When you are aware of your present moment, it will be easier for you to notice signs from angels and figure out how the signs apply to your life.

Keep in mind that everything happens for your benefit in life, and for this reason, every experience is not wasted -- every experience is to help you grow. The more you try to understand the world and yourself with astrology, birth charts, and other spiritual teachings, the more you realize how much more you need to learn. Angels help you by opening the door to your divine spiritual nature and by offering you solutions to aid your progress in your life journey.

Remember, you were born into this world with your own special talents to contribute to humankind and make the world a better place.  It is what you are adding to the world that matters. With the help of angels, watch for the divine signs and listen to the whispers of your heart for guidance. Even when you feel unsure on your path, trust that you are safe.  Trust that you are always protected.  And most of all, trust that the Universe already knows the way.

Just trust.
