Menadel and the 10 of Pentacles
The two Shem Angels associated with the 10 of Pentacles are 35 Chevakiah (Kah-Vah-KEH) and 36 Menadel (Meh-NOO-Dah).
They relate to the 10 of Pentacles in slightly different ways. Whereas the focus with Chevakiah is more on family harmony and fair distribution of resources, with Menadel the focus is firmly on our work and calling. Menadel can help us figure out what our legacy should be so that we can align fully with our life purpose. He can help us find meaningful employment as well as keep any job/career worth keeping. He helps us find the right balance so that we don’t become slaves to our work. Anybody with workaholic tendencies would do well to call on this Angel.
Menadel is the physical Guardian Angel for those born 8-23 September. This means that work is very important to you in this lifetime. If you are not sure what the true meaning of your work is, call on Menadel to help you gain insights. He can also bring a greater sense of fulfilment through your work and to find exactly the type of work that will help you live out your mission blueprint.
