Do you know what day of the week you were born? Each day of the week is ruled by a different Archangel and this Archangel is one of your 5 Birth Angels (together with the Zodiac, Elemental, Quinary and Guardian Angels).
Jump to Your Angel
- Sunday – Archangel Michael (Leo)
- Monday – Archangel Gabriel (Cancer)
- Tuesday – Archangel Camael (Aries and Scorpio)
- Wednesday – Archangel Raphael (Gemini and Virgo)
- Thursday – Archangel Sachiel (Sagittarius and Pisces)
- Friday – Archangel Anael (Taurus and Libra)
- Saturday – Archangel Cassiel (Capricorn)
- Saturday – Archangel Uriel (Aquarius)
The Guardian Angel of the day of the week you were born can help you to align with your Life Purpose and to overcome any related challenges. But as usual with the angels, it’s up to you. You will need to ask for help! They rarely interfere in the dealings of humans unless asked directly.
Additionally, knowing the angelic/planetary rulers of each day of the week can help you with timing for setting intentions. Best of all, you are not limited to just one of these angels but can call on any of them, as the need arises. But you will always have a special affinity with the angel of the day you were born.
Your Personal Guide to Angel Magic
However, if you are on a path of magic (aka magick) and feel guided to work with the Angelic Realm while doing magic for the Highest Good (the only kind of magic the angels get involved with), you can get to know the Archangelic rulers of the days of the week in relationship with your natal chart, working with the astrological system that most resonates with you.
In Angel Magic, the main angel you will be working with is the angelic ruler of your Moon Sign. So for this reason, you may need to know the time of birth. This is because the Moon changes signs approximately every 2½ days. However, if you cannot determine your exact Moon sign, you can begin by working with Archangel Raphael in his role as a messenger who will relay your questions and requests to your Moon Sign Angel.
Trust that your Moon Sign Angel will be revealed to you in due course. You may find that a different system of astrology than the one you were originally taught provides you with a tutelary angel guide who is a better fit.
What About Asariel and Azrael?
Those of you with basic knowledge of planetary correspondences may wonder why Uriel (Uranus/Aquarius) has been included but not Asariel (Neptune/Pisces) and Azrael (Pluto/Scorpio).
All the outer planets are modern additions in astrology but Uranus has been included by practitioners of magick for quite a long time already. Uriel is considered more reliable and easier to work with than Asariel and Azrael. His presence in ancient occult literature is also much more well-established than that of Asariel and Azrael.
Angels and Tarot?
Angelorum is all about Angelic Tarot and helping you harness the power and guidance of the angelic realm when using the Tarot. There are systems of Tarot correspondences that tell you which angels to work with for aligning with your Higher Self and successfully carrying out your unique life purpose. The systems I work with are mainly those of the Kabbalah (Shem HaMephorash) for the Minor Arcana and the Golden Dawn for the Major Arcana, though I have made some changes based on what I have channelled through concerning the Majors.
The Tarot illustrations below are all from the Rider Waite Tarot deck which originates in the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn and was first published in December 1909 by Rider Publishing & Sons in London. I highly recommend getting a copy of this deck if you are interested in learning Angelic Tarot.
Sunday – Archangel Michael
Archangel Michael: Empowering Your Inner Light
Archangel Michael is the archangelic ruler of Sundays. His name, meaning ‘Who Is Like God,’ reminds us of the divine spark within each of us. Just as the Sun illuminates the world, Archangel Michael can help you radiate your inner light, regardless of the challenges you face.
Archangel Michael Rules Over…
- The Sun

When you find yourself entangled in the energy of others, call upon Michael to sever any energetic cords that bind you, freeing you emotionally. His powerful presence can shield you from negative influences and guide you towards self-empowerment.
The colours associated with Archangel Michael are gold, orange and electric blue. Psychic practitioners often recommend using electric blue to create a protective shield around yourself. If you wish to connect with Michael during meditation, consider using crystals such as aquamarine, citrine, amber, or lapis lazuli. Additionally, essential oils like frankincense, cinnamon, saffron, orange blossom and bergamot can be used to invoke his energy.
Let Archangel Michael be your guiding light, empowering you to shine your divine essence brightly in the world.

Camael (aka Samael or Chamuel), whose name means ‘He Who Sees God’ or ‘Raised by God’ is Tuesday’s angelic guide. As a warrior angel, Camael has strongly protective qualities and is ready to assist you in your quest to fight against injustice and indifference.

To create a sacred ambience, infuse your space with scents associated with Sachiel, such as cedar, iris, lilac, and ambergris. As you invite Archangel Sachiel into your life, open yourself to receiving the abundant gifts that the universe has in store for you.

Cassiel, also known as Zaphkiel, is the angel who presides over Saturn. This serious and focused angel is dedicated to helping you stay disciplined and committed to your goals.

Saturday – Archangel Uriel
Archangel Uriel is the modern addition to Archangelic rulership of the days of the week. However, as the Archangelic ruler of the sign Aquarius, he is a vital addition as humanity prepares to enter fully into the Age of Aquarius. The traditional ruler of Aquarius is Saturn. However, I doubt that many Aquarians living now can relate to Saturn.
Archangel Uriel Rules Over…
- Humanitarian pursuits
- Consciousness evolution
- The central nervous system
- Artificial intelligence
Uriel’s name means ‘Light of God.’ Crystals to use to connect with his energy are clear quartz***, rutilated quartz, amber and tiger’s eye. He teaches us to embrace the now moment and helps us adapt to unexpected changes in life. The colours to work with when invoking him are blue and green.
Essential oils to use for working with Archangel Uriel are clove bud, lavender***, vetiver and benzoin.
Clear quartz and lavender can also be used as replacements for other crystals and oils in the same way you can use a white candle to replace any other colour candle.
