The Natal Guardian Angel(s) & Other Astrologically-Derived Angels

by Brian Pivik
Introduction

In this paper[1] I have given a large amount of information on the creation of angels based
solely on your natal chart. It is imperative that you obtain accurate information regarding your
birthplace and time in order to fully utilize this process. You are free to use whichever western-
style natal chart suits you, though Placidus and Koch are the most common, and (in my opinion)
the most reliable. I have not attempted the following using Vedic systems.

When speaking of creating angels, I mean one of two things which you can interpret in your
own way:

1. finding the angel(s) associated with you, and/or


2. creating them from your chart.

In other words, you are either finding the angels based on your chart, or that you are
creating them. Whichever you choose for your particular worldview is your opinion. I have my
own, but feel its important to work through this concept on your own.

I would also like to make the point that your HGA is separate from the Angelic Names derived
in this paper.[2] These Angels are related directly to your birth chart, while according to
tradition, the HGA is above the influences of the planets and the zodiac.

Deriving the Names

In Agrippas Three Books of Occult Philosophy, he outlines the essentials needed for
creating an angelic name based on your natal chart:

The ancient magicians did teach an art of finding out the name of a spirit to any
desired effect, drawing it from the disposition of the heaven; as for example, any
celestial harmony being proposed to thee for the making an image or ring, or any
other work to be done under a certain constellation; if thou will find out the spirit
that is the ruler of that work; the figure of the heaven being erected, cast forth
letters in their number and order from the degree of the ascendent, according to
the succession of signs through each degree by filling the whole circle of the
heaven: then those letters which fall into the places of the stars the aid whereof
thou wouldest use, being according to the number, and powers of those stars,
marked without into number, and order, make the name of a good spirit: but if thou
shalt do so from the beginning of a degree falling against the progress of the signs,
the resulting spirit shall be evil.[3]

This concept is borne out in much greater detail in Tysons version of The Fourth Book of
Occult Philosophy, pages 118 ff.

In short, the practitioner erects a blank astrological chart, placing the first letter of the Hebrew
alphabet (Alef) on the ascendant, and place the rest of the letters counter-clockwise in order in
each of the remaining 30 degrees of each house, repeating the alphabet when necessary (after
coming to Tau). The evil angels are derived by starting from the descendant and placing the
letters clockwise.[4] As we shall see, their derivation is different than the Good Angels. Since the
size of such a chart would take up a huge amount of space, this is much easier to show in
tabular form, as portrayed on the next few pages.

The creation of a variety of angelic beings is outlined following the charts, but the first step youll
need to do is find your natal chart, and follow along with our example.

Using the Above Charts


Part I: The ASC Method

Ive named this method "ASC" because it utilizes the Angular, Succedent and Cadent Houses
(the process itself has very little do with the Ascendant). One other note of import: this method
utilizes only the seven traditional planets.

Agrippa gives some hints about what the practitioner is to do regarding the creation of Angelic
names utilizing the above charts:

By this art some of the Hebrew and Chaldean masters teach that the nature, and
name of any genius may be found out; as for example, the degree of the ascendent
of anyone's nativity being known, and the other corners of the heaven being
coequated, then let that which had the more dignities of planets in those four
corners, which the Arabians call almutez, be first observed amongst the rest: and
according to that in the second place, that which shall be next to it in the number of
dignities, and so by order the rest of them, which obtain any dignity in the foresaid
corners: this order being used, thou mayest know the true place, and degree of
them in the heaven, beginning from the degree of the ascendent through each
degree according to the order of signs to cast twentytwo of the letters of the
Hebrews; then what letters shall fall into the places of the aforesaid stars, being
marked, and disposed according to the order found out above in the stars, and
rightly joined together according to the rules of the Hebrew tongue, make the
name of a genius: to which, according to the custom, some monosyllable name of
divine omnipotency, viz. El, or Iah is subjoined. But if the casting of the letters be
made from an angle of the falling, and against the succession of signs, and the
letters which shall fall in the nadir (that is, the opposite point) of the aforesaid stars,
be after that order as we said, joined together, shall make the name of an evil
genius.[6]

This first section outlines the concept of taking ones natal chart (Ive given W.B. Yeats at the
end as an example, from which I will be creating Names of Angelic beings for this paper),
moving in order of the Angular ones (1st, 4th, 7th and 10th), outlining which of the houses
contain the most (or the best-aspected planets), then moving to Succedent, then Cadent, finally
forming a Name from them.

First, find your Ascendant degree. This will obviously refer to the first house in the above chart.
The degree of the Ascendant will depend on the chart itself, and is the corresponding row. Find
the planets therein and note their relative astrological weight. This weight depends upon five
major factors:

The Rulership of the planet(s) if the planet(s) Rule the sign theyre in, they receive 5
points in the Ptolemaic system.
The Exaltation of the planet(s) see the chart below. Each planet in Exaltation
receives 4 points.
The Triplicity of the planet(s) see the chart below. Each planet in the corresponding
Triplicity receives 3 points.
The Term of the planet(s) see the chart below. Each planet in its Term receives 2
points.
The Face of the planet(s) see the chart below. Each planet in its Face receives
1point.
Chart 2 [7]

Guide to the above chart:

Column one shows the signs.


Column 2 contains the Night and Day Houses.
Column 3 shows the specific degree of exaltation - these degrees are particularly notable
although the dignity of exaltation is generally applied to the whole of the sign.
The fourth column shows the planetary rulership of the triplicities. You will see that the
pattern repeats for the fire triplicity - Aries, Leo and Sagittarius and so on. The D and N
again stand for the Day and Night rulers.
The fifth column shows where rulership by term transfers. That is, Jupiter rules the first six
degree of Aries, from 000' - 559'; Venus rules from 600' - 1359 Aries.
The sixth column shows the degrees where rulership by face transfers. That is, Mars rules
the first ten degree of Aries, from 000' - 959'; the Sun rules from 1000' - 1959
Aries.
The seventh column shows the signs where the planets experience detriment. These are
the signs opposite the ones they rule, so apart from the Sun and Moon, each planet has
two signs of detriment just as they have two signs of rulership.
The eighth column shows the signs where the planets experience fall. These are opposite
the signs of exaltation, so each planet has only one sign of fall, just as they have only one
sign of exaltation. Although the debility is applied throughout the sign, the specific degrees
mentioned in the list of exaltations carry extra significance, so the 28th degree of Cancer
is particularly notable as a degree of debility for Mars, being the sign and degree of its
fall.

Now, in Yeats chart, we must determine if it was night or day when he was born. 10:40 pm is
likely evening, so we move on to our next step. Yeats first house contains Luna in 19
Aquarius, 46. So for this planet, we consult the chart above and find Aquarius. Moving across
the chart, we only find one symbol of Luna, and since it rules the face of 2100 to 2959,
this planet has no essential dignities.

Next, move on to the 4th and repeat, doing the same with all planets or planet in the 7th and
10th Houses.
In Yeats 4th, we find no planets. His 7th contains Mars (1202 in Leo). Again referring to our
chart, we see that the term of Mars ends at 19, so this means Mars gets 2 points. In his
10th house, there are no planets, so we end there with our analysis of the Angular Houses.

We then begin again, with the Succedent Houses. His 2nd House contains a South Node
(2829 in Aries)dont forget to skip the outer planets! Again, theres no relationship here, so
it gets a point of 0. The fifth house contains Sol 2251 in Gemini. The only match is to the face
of the planet, so it gets 2 points. Next is the 8th house, with Saturn 2344 Libra. Saturn in
Libra is exalted, therefore it gets 4 points. Its also matching the term of the planet, so 2 more
for a total of 6 points for Saturn. Next up is the North Node, again meeting 0 points. Finally, we
come to the 11th House, containing Jupiter at 2418 Sagittarius. This is a Night Triplicity, so 3
points for it.

Finally, we come to the Cadent Houses. Yeats 3rd House has Venus 1321 Taurus and
Mercury 0356 Gemini. Venus Rules the Night House, gaining 5 points. Mercury is in its Night
Triplicity, gaining 3, plus its in Term, so another 2 equals 5 total points (we could count it as the
Ruler of Mercury, but its in the night).

So, for all the Angular, Succedent and Cadent houses, we have in order of points (or essential
dignity), then House placement:

Planet Degree Sign House Angular, Succedent, Cadent Points

1. Saturn 2344 Libra 8th Succedent 6


2. Venus 1321 Taurus 3rd Cadent 5
3. Mercury 0356 Gemini 3rd Cadent 5
4. Jupiter 2418 Sagittarius 11th Succedent 3
5. Mars 1202 Leo 7th Angular 2
6. Sol 2251 Gemini 5th Succedent 2
7. Luna 1946 Aquarius 1st Angular 0
8. South Node 2829 Aries 2nd Succedent 0
0
9. North Node[8] 2829 Libra 8th Succedent

Now, to find the Name of the Good Angel. Starting with the Planet with the highest number of
points, Saturn and working down, we consult the main chart on pages 3-4. First, we find the 8th
house, where Saturn is, and look down to the 23 row, finding the letter Mem ( ). This is the
first letter of the name of Yeats Good Angel. We then repeat the process for each planet in
order of the chart above, and come up with:

I.1: Finding the Vowels.

Since Hebrew contains no vowels, we must decide upon a manner in which to add the vowels
to our new Angelic Name. There are two methods to add these, one a traditional Kabbalistic
one from Abraham Abulafia, and the second from Agrippas The Fourth Book of Occult
Philosophy.

The latter is a variation of the method of finding the Part of Fortune in astrology. Begin with the
degree of the zodiac on the cusp of the 11th house (in Yeats chart, 21, which means it is at
304). From 304, we subtract the degree occupied by the planet standing for the first letter of
the Good Angels name (for Yeats, Saturn is at 23 Libra, 8th house, making it 254, therefore
the difference is 50. Now, we must again refer to yet another chart, showing the vowels a-e-i-
o-u, starting at the ascendant and moving around the chart counterclockwise just as the Hebrew
chart above.

I personally find this method quite restrictive and laborious, especially given the fact that the
practitioner must count degrees for every letter, subtract the amount between itself and the
previous letter.

A simpler method is to utilize Abulafias system, shown in the chart below. Note that the vowels
contain numerical value as well, and can give the practitioner another gematria to examine.

Chart 3 [9]

From this method, we can quickly derive the vowels for , Yeats Good Angel into
Mezaqoaayoqonutza.
I.2: Suffixes.

In his Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Agrippa states that one can add the suffixes Yah, El,
On, or Yod.[10] The Hebrew versions of each and their gematria are as follows:

Yah: (15)
El: (31)
On: (56 or 706)
Yod: (14) or (20) or (10)

He states that Jah is a name of beneficence, and Jod the name of a deity, therefore these two
names are put only to the names of [good] angels; but the name El, because it imports power,
and virtue, is therefore added not only to good but bad spirits, for neither can evil spirits either
subsist, or do anything without the virtue of El, God.[11] Agrippa does not intimate about the
use of on, but since its used for Metatron and Sandalphon, I would wager that it is utilized
only for Good Angels.

One other consideration is the gematria of these choices, which I have given above. When
adding one possibility to an angelic name, research on the final gematria using a dictionary to
create the desired characteristics of the angel.[12]

Part II: The Chaldean Method

But the Chaldeans proceed another way; for they take not the almutez of the
corners, but the almutez of the eleventh house, and do in all things as hath been
said. Now they find out an evil genius from the almutez of the angle of the twelfth
house, which they call an Evil Spirit, casting from the degree of the falling against
the progress of the sign.[13]

This method is easy once weve delved into the previous section. Donald Tyson in the Fourth
Book gives us more insight into how to create this angel:

. . . Agrippa meant the most dignified planet in or of the sign on the cusp of the
11th house, called the house of the Good Daemon, which is to be used to indicate
the place of the first letter of the name of the good genius. It is impossible to make
a spirit name from a single letter, so other letters must be gathered from other
planets. How are the letters of the spirit derived from a single house? By finding
the other planets that have essential dignities in the sign on the cusp of the 11th
house, and ranking those planets according to their strengths.[14]

Following the method he then outlines, we examine all dignities associated with the sign on the
11th house. For Yeats chart, Sagittarius lies on the 11th. Referring to the above dignities chart,
we see that Jupiter rules Sagittarius. Since he has Jupiter in the 11th (2418 Sagittarius), lets
again add up the points for Jupiter: 3 points for being in the night Triplicity. Next, lets look at
other planets associated with Sagittarius. The next planet associated would be the South Node,
in Sagittarius exaltation. The South Node had 0 points, as you recall. The Sun is a day
Triplicity, so we skip it. We then end up with a Name of 2 letters (using the same system as
before to find the letters): or an. This is enough to create the Angelic Name Anel ( ) or
Aniah ( ), to give just two examples.
Part III: The Hyleg Method

There are also the Arabians, and many others, and some Hebrews, who find out
the name of a genius by the places of the five hylegians, and making projection
always from the beginning of Aries, and the letters being found out according to
the order of hylegians with the astrologers, being reduced into a known order, and
being joined together, make the name of a good Genius: but they draw the name of
an evil Genius from the opposite hylegian places, projection being made from the
last degree of Pisces against the order of signs.[15]

The hylegs are a point of contention with astrologersessentially they outline the planet with
the greatest essential dignity in five important natal chart positions.[16] There is no consensus in
modern astrology what exactly makes up these five points, but Ill outline two possible methods
for finding the hyleg here.

III.1: The Ptolemaic Method.

This is the Ptolemaic version, outlined in Tysons version of the Three Books:

Among these there are to be preferred, with reference to power of domination,


first those [degrees] which are in the Midheaven [Xth house], then those in the
orient [Ist house], then those in the sign succedent to the mid-heaven [Xlth house],
then those in the Occident [Vllth house], then those in the sign rising before
Midheaven [IXth house]; for the whole region below the earth must, as is
reasonable, be disregarded when a domination of such importance is concerned,
except only those parts which in the ascendant itself are coming into the light.[17]

First, you must remember to always work counter-clockwise (unless working with an evil angel,
then work clockwise to form the Name) when identifying the planets. Find all traditional planets
in the 10th House, then 1st, 11th, 7th and 9th. In Yeats example, we find nothing in the 10th, so
we skip it, the 1st has Luna in 19 Aquarius, the 11th has Jupiter in 24 Sagittarius, the 7th has
Mars in 12 Leo, and the 9th has no planets. If your chart has several planets in one of these
houses, take them in counter-clockwise order to define the name. We then once again refer to
the above chart to form the name, just like we did in Part I:

is the Name of the Ptolemaic Hyleg angel for Yeats (or Qaa). Again, we append El or
Yah, ending up with or . I would venture to name these angels Qaayah or
Qaael.

III.2: The Arabic Method.

This method of finding the hyleg is a bit more complex than the previous one, and involves five
points (in order of desirability):

Sun
Moon
Ascendant Degree
Part of Fortune
Syzygy ante nativatatem (the place of either a full or new moon just previous to the time
the chart was cast).
The most difficult item here to find is the syzygy. Fortunately, modern computers can figure the
location quite easily. Another option is much easier:

Sun
Moon
Ascendant Degree
Midheaven Degree
Part of Fortune

The rules surrounding determining the actual hyleg, or prorogator of life (meaning it supposedly
shows the length of life) are as follows:

If a daytime chart, the Sun rules, unless it is horribly located then you move to the next
point (Luna in this case)
If a night chart, Luna rules, again, unless horribly located, then if so, continue on down the
line.
Repeat.

If a day chart, start with Sol. If you have a night chart, you start with Luna (with Sol next). You
then have 5 places.
In Yeats chart, we can create a table of the highest to lowest dignities for the hyleg points (I
have included both the Midheaven and the syzygy as an example):

Planet or Point Degree Sign House

Luna 1946 Aquarius 1st


Sol 2251 Gemini 5th
Ascendant 0046 Aquarius 1st
Midheaven 0414 Sagittarius 10th
Part of Fortune 0351 Gemini 3rd
Syzgy 0923 Taurus 3rd

From these 5 points (ignore the syzygy for this example), we come up with the Name , or
Qoyiareq (minus the suffix).

Another method of extracting the Names is to apply the first chart in this paper to 0000 Aries,
the beginning of a blank zodiacal wheel. There are other methods of hyleg, which can easily be
used to create angelic names. I encourage you to explore them and create Angels around those
as well.

Part III: Planetary and Zodiacal Methods


III.1: The Planetary Angels.

As the name of this section implies, you can create an angel based upon the planets in your
chart. You can even use all of the planets, not just the traditional 7 as Ive done here. You can
even create an angel based on one planet.

Example One (Angel for all your planets):


Starting with the Personal Houses: 1st, 5th and 9th, deriving the letters from those
houses.
Then you move to the Houses of Substance: 2nd, 6th and 10th.
Then, the Houses of Relationships: 3rd, 7th, 11th.
Finally, the Houses of Endings: 4th, 8th and 12th.

Once again, we refer to the above chart, using the proper house for each planet, in the above
order. For Yeats chart, using the 7 traditional planets, we end up with:

( or ) Qiyzaaham(-el or -yah)

Example Two (Angel for all your planets, method 2):

Starting with the planets from the Ascendant, Succedent and Cadent (in that order), we can
derive yet another angelic name directly related to the natal chart. For Yeats, we find:

( or ) Qahaiymaz(-el or -yah)

You will note that the two examples both contain the same letters. This is one excellent way of
checking your work to ensure accuracy. However, these two angels, while having the exact
same lettering, are slightly different. The first would theoretically relate more to you as a person,
while the second would relate more to the actions you perform. A golden rule for creating these
angels is that the first letter should be the summation of what youre enquiring about, while the
next letters flesh out the desired enquiry.

Example Three (A planet-specific angel):

Lets say that you require a Jupiterian talisman, and would like to link the Talisman directly to
your birth chart. This method is an invention of my own, but is based off Agrippas method for
developing a planet-specific Angel in the Fourth Book:

This therefore is to be known, That the names of the intelligent presidents of


everyone of the Planets are constituted after this manner: that is to say, by
collecting together the letters out of the figure of the world, from the rising of the
body of the planet, according to the succession of the signs through the several
degrees; and out of the several degrees, from the aspects of the Planet himself, the
calculation being made from the degree of the ascendant. In the like manner are
constituted the names of the princes of the evil spirits; they are taken under all the
Planets of the presidents in a retrograde order, the projection being made contrary
to the succession of the signs, from the beginning of the seventh house.[18]

In short, to find the president of a planet, cast a chart where that planet is on the ascendant, find
the strongest planet in aspect to that planet, that is the first letter of the Name. You continue
through the chart, ignoring all negative aspects. The letters are formed as before.

However, to create a planetary angel based on your own chart, begin by taking the planet in
question and examine all aspects by all bodies to it. Here, the planet in question is always the
first letter (Tyson explains that the reason the planet in question is ignored in the above quote is
because its on the ascendant. Since the planet in question is highly likely not on the ascendant,
we can ignore this rule). In Yeats chart, Jupiter (to continue our example) is equal to Ayin using
the same system as before. Now, by ranking the aspected points on the chart (including
Ascendant, Midheaven, Part of Fortune and all major points, we can come up with the
following list (from most favorable aspect to least, ignoring all negative aspects):

South Node (Trine)


Saturn (Sextile)

Examining our first chart as above, this gives us the Name , Anem (minus suffix). Then
added to the talisman, this Name would enable him to personally call upon the president of
Jupiter in his chart to further invoke the powers desired.

III.2: The Zodiacal Angels.

Again, the same derivation may be used to create an angel based around the position of your
zodiacal signs. One can create an angel for all 12 signs, or just for a select few.

Example One:

Using all 12 signs on the cusps, in order, we can create from Yeats chart the following Name:

( or ) Alahutadahatimah(-el or -yah)

I find the Zodiacal angels far too long for my personal taste, but your mileage may vary. I must
reiterate that if you utilize an equal house system (rather than the Placidus system given here),
you will likely derive a different Name than the one given here.

Part IV: Other Methods

There are other angelic names mentioned in Agrippa in Chapter 27 following the quoted ones
above, including angels for physiognomy, passions and the profession. Unfortunately, Agrippa
gives no hard and fast rules on how to create these names. I have created two methods below,
showing how to create an angel of a persons profession:

IV.1: The Angel of Profession Method One.

We know from astrology that the 10th house rules ones profession, but if your chart (like
Yeats) does not have any planets in that house, we must begin to look elsewhere. For example,
the 2nd house deals with ones material life, including debts and gain. Again, Yeats chart
contains nothing in the 2nd house. The next house dealing specifically with work is the 6th.
Again nothing! The 7th may have to do with business partnerships, but in our Yeats example,
nothing particular can be gained with his single Mars aspect.

However, if in your chart any or all of these houses are filled, you can proceed in the manner
suggested here:

First, examine what aspect of your professional life you are more interested in learning
about from this angel. If its how others see you, start with the 10th house. If its your
inner talents, start with the 2nd, and so on.
Next, look at the other houses that are filled that relate to your interest, and continue for
as many houses as are necessary.
In that order, create the name from the above charts, appending El or Yah.
III.2: The Angel of Profession Method Two.

Another method utilizes the planetary rulers of the houses involved with work (2, 6, 10, possibly
7). Lets utilize Yeats chart once again. First, we decide on what order of the Houses wed like
to utilize (the following is just a sample):

10th Profession
6th Employer
2nd Financial affairs

So, going to Yeats chart, the 10th house is ruled by Sagittarius. The ruler of Sagittarius is
Jupiter. We find it in his chart, in the 11th in Sagittarius (a good sign of his success). So, we fill in
the following chart to help us along:

House Sign Ruler House w here Ruler Resides Degree Sign

10th Sagittarius Jupiter 11th House 24 Sagittarius


6th Cancer Moon 2nd House 19 Aquarius
2nd Aries Mars 7th House 12 Leo

Again referring to the first two charts, we derive another Name, using the positions of the
Houses in question, but using the degrees of the planetary ruler.

For Yeats example well outline the first letter. We want a Name from the 10th house, but we
utilize the 24th degree, obtaining . This is repeated for each letter, obtaining the Name ,
Chasar. Again, we append El or Yah, making Chasarel or Chasariah.

This is only one way to perform a mixed Angelic being who is based in the Houses in question,
but also utilizes the Planetary Ruler of that House. Again, youre only limited by your
imagination.

Deriving Further Names


Part I: The Planetary Method

In this section, I will outline how one can create a number of greater powers to the base angel
youve derived from your work. First, remember that the ASC Method angel, and the hyleg
angel are the two considered to be your ruling angel (at least according to Agrippa). We can
then take one of those two Angels, find their ruling Archangel, Principalities, Virtues, Powers,
Dominations, Thrones, Cherubim, and Seraphim (this particular hierarchy originates from
Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite). I personally am unsure how useful anything above an
Archangel would be, but again, your mileage may vary.

First, lets take our very first example of Yeats ASC-derived angelic Name: or
Mezaqoaayoqonutza," minus the suffix. Lets say Yeats decided to add the suffix El to his
ASC-derived angel, making it . Youll recall this Name is based on the following
points, in order:

Saturn
Venus
Mercury
Jupiter
Mars
Sol
Luna
South Node
North Node

There are no rules given in Agrippa for what to do with the Node letters (or any created from
the Midheaven or Ascendant), as there is no corresponding point given in the chart. My opinion
is that these letters remains the same.

So, starting with the first letter, Mem, we then refer to the following chart, where we move from
right to left, finding the column of Saturn (since that letter derived from his Saturn in the 8th
house, 23 Libra). We replace the Mem with Qof, and repeat for each letter, leaving the suffix.
We then find the Archangelic Name Qogithaqoreaanutzael. This
archangel is immediately set over his ASC angel. This is repeated all up the chain to the
Seraphim if required. One final note: Agrippas version of this uses the Christian Dionysian form
of the Hierarchy. I feel that one could adapt this to a Kabbalistic one, or even a Gnostic one,
depending on the views of the practitioner. In any case, I have not found it necessary to utilize
anything above an Archangel for practical work.
Chart 4 [19]

Part II: The Zodiacal Method

If you wish to find the appropriate hierarchy above the Zodiacal Name(s) youve produced, use
the following chart in the exact manner as the Planetary chart:

Chart 5

Putting It All Together

Once youve derived an angelic Name, either good or evil, you can begin to work with that
Name in whatever manner you see fit. In fact, this is an excellent starting point for creating your
own ritual work, fully personalized and based around your natal chart and your angel.

You can further explore the concept of creating your own angelic beings from other items in
your natal chart. Remember that even the hard and fast rules arent really all that. Most of the
rules (except where specifically mentioned as Agrippas) here were created by myself. You
should do the same.

All these Angels deal with you, whether you ever notice, evoke, scry them or not. Remember
the Talmudic saying, Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, 'Grow,
grow.' So much more is the life of every man and woman.
Finally, let me mention in passing that you can create angels and hierarchies from other charts as
well, either horary or electional charts. This method of deriving angels greatly personalizes the
advanced practitioners toolkit.

Notes

1. This is based on a longer paper of mine, in private circulation.

2.Tradition varies in the origin of the HGA from ones natal chart. If one takes the HGA to be
the daimon of Iamblichus, he states that it can be derived from said chart, while the HGA in
modern Hermetic Qabalah may be above the stars. I lean toward the latter in this paper,
though the more tradition-oriented student may interpret as Iamblichus and others.

3. Henry Cornelius Agrippa, The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy, Donald Tyson, ed. (St.
Paul, Minnesota: Llewellyn, 2009), 547.

4. Youll note I have not covered the Evil Angels in the detail I have the Good ones. This is not
for puritanical reasons, merely for the reason that the derivation of the Evil Angels is just the
opposite of the Good, and can be done by the adept on his/her own. I firmly believe (just like in
the Abramelin Operation), that once one has connected with ones Higher Self, the process of
dealing with the lower forces is necessary and indeed prudent to make a fully rounded adept.

5. This chart and the following are from Aaron Leitchs Angelical Language, Volume 1 (St.
