Get to Know Archangel Barachiel

Archangel Barachiel, recognised in both Christian and Judaic traditions, is often depicted holding a white rose against his chest, a symbol of the blessings he bestows upon humanity. Depending on the artistic interpretation of the qualities of Barachiel, we see him as both male and female in traditional angel art. Barachiel is one of the seven archangels in Byzantine Catholic and Eastern Orthodox theology. In addition to being the GA associated with Pisces, he oversees all the guardian angels of every single human being. His name means “Blessing of God,” underlining his divine role to grant blessings and intercede on behalf of humanity.

Many turn to him for help with abundance and material blessings, as well as for protection. Invoke Barachiel on a Saturday for protection (Waning Moon is best) and Thursday (preferably Waxing Moon) for blessings of abundance.

While Archangel Barachiel does not appear prominently in the canonical scriptures, we find mention of him in some apocryphal texts. In the ‘Testament of Solomon,’ we read, ‘Barachiel, the intercessor of prayers, comes upon the earth with the sign of the stars, bringing forth grace and blessing from the heavens to gladden the hearts of men.’

Barachiel is also the angel who watches over converts to Christianity, offering guidance and protection in their spiritual journey. In other traditions, such as folk Catholicism, devotees call upon him for familial harmony and happiness. Archangel Barachiel is primarily recognised in the Eastern churches. The celebration of angels takes a prominent place within the liturgical calendar in the Eastern Christian tradition.

As the Guardian of the Zodiac sign of Pisces, Archangel Barachiel is also associated with healing of the feet.
