Zodiac signs and Archangels play an important part in our lives. The Angels of the Zodiac can change our lives for the better.

The Angels of the Zodiac bring positive energy, happiness and contentment into our lives. But how do we access this wonderful ability of the angels?

In the zodiac, everything has meaning because everything is connected with the Angelic Realm.

All of the twelve zodiac signs are overseen by at least one of the twelve main Archangels. They are called the Archangels of the Zodiac.

These Archangels, in their turn, oversee one planet that can help us understand our astrological birth sign and how it is deeply linked with our life path and soul purpose. No matter the day and month we were born, there is always an Archangel that oversees our zodiac sign and watches over us. This is one of the most important aspects of the connection between zodiac signs and the Archangels because we all need the help of the Angels from time to time.

Be it for mundane reasons, or for important decisions to make, there is always an Archangel that guides us. Very often, (way more than we can imagine), our actions are driven by the specific traits of our zodiac signs. What we do, and how we do it, is deeply influenced by our zodiac sign and the personality traits that are linked with that specific sign. Our astrological birth sign tells us of our inherent personality traits.

This is true both for humans and for animals because the Angels of the Zodiac oversee both human beings and animals born under a specific sign.

The Angels of the Zodiac are indeed extremely powerful.

The combined action of Archangels and planets helps all signs of the Zodiac to smooth things over. When you get to know the Archangel who is linked with your sign, you can call upon him for guidance and suggestions. By knowing more about your Archangel, can you form a deeper connection with your zodiac and thus make betterments in your life!

Let’s have a look at the 12 Archangels of the Zodiac.

Each zodiac sign has at least one special Angel

ARIES – Archangel Camael
Archangel Camael oversees the star sign of Aries, bringing the qualities of assertiveness and confidence.
Archangel Camael relates to the Golden Ray as well as to the ‘solar angels’. Archangel Camael rules the planet Mars.
Generally speaking, those who are born under the sign of Aries are outgoing, full of ideas, and sometimes impulsive. They are gifted with an enthusiastic attitude for everything around them. They are often dramatic and always willing to take on challenges.


Aries shows a dominant personality; however, this is often a mask they choose to wear to cover their true feelings and sometimes their insecurity.

Those who are under the sign of Aries may present a front of bravado at first glance. But on the other hand, and deep down inside, they are unsure of themselves.
Aries has little or no patience for details and is easily angered. Their moments of rage are rare and short-lived, and grudges are quickly forgotten. Aries might sometimes explode in a fit of tempter one minute just to have no recollection of what it was about the next minute.
Archangel Camael comes to help when insecurity arises. Because Camael rules the planet Mars, so he can easily help inner strength and self-confidence to grow, thus bringing the Aries’ personality to the next level.

TAURUS – Archangel Hagiel
Archangel Hagiel rules over the planet Venus.
Archangel Hagiel oversees the star sign Taurus and highlights the qualities of reliability and practicality that form the main aspect of Taurus’ personality traits.


Those who are born under the sign of Taurus are earthy, acute, and appreciate both physical and material comfort. By their very nature, they tend to take things practically. Taureans have a natural leaning towards stability and security, but they must pay attention not to become trapped in the material world and the practical aspects of life. Sometimes, this constant search for stability leads them to let go of their dreams. They can choose to give up on their deepest dreams for a life under the sign of practicality. Taureans enjoy luxury, beauty, and high-quality goods. Taureans are also naturally attuned to nature.

Their life motto could be ‘I am patient and I persevere in anything I do’.


Taureans like to be always productive, to convert their energy into power. They never leave a job half-done. They must be careful though, as their power can turn into a form of control over other people. When this happens, and Taureans become very controlling and even castrative, Archangel Hagiel comes to help. As previously said, Hagiel is linked with planet Venus, the planet of love. On the one hand, Venus represents the Taurus’ values about integrity but is also linked with pleasure and love of life.

He can help those who are born under the sign of Taurus to see things from another perspective. The perspective of beauty, and a more happy-go-lucky approach to life.

GEMINI – Archangel Raphael
The zodiac sign of Gemini is overseen by Archangel Raphael. Archangel Raphael is one of the principal Angels of Healing and has the ability to guide all human beings along their healing journey. Archangel Raphael rules over the planet Mercury. This gives to those born under the sign of Gemini the traits of adaptability and of being very social.

Gemini is sometimes being depicted as presenting as two separate people, with two separate and very different personalities.


People born under the sign of Gemini are often very clever. It is no coincidence that their main tool is their mind. Geminis are subject to becoming nervously exhausted. They also have a great need for variety and this may leave them with scattered energies. They have endlessly curious minds, so they tend to lose focus on a project and suddenly turn their attention to another one. They have an insatiable thirst for learning and knowledge. Gemini keeps learning all along their lifetime. They are gatherers of information but tend to not share this information with other people.

Because of this attitude of theirs, they tend to be sometimes cryptic and it is very difficult to ‘extract’ from their minds what are their truest and deepest thoughts about something or someone.

They have a natural tendency to clam up. When this happens (and it does happen with Geminis!), Archangel Raphael comes to help.

Raphael rules over Mercury. In Greek myths, Mercury was Hermes, the winged messenger of God. Raphael can help the Gemini to unleash their communication skills, making the Geminis able to freely express their thoughts and feelings and share them with others.

CANCER – Archangel Gabriel
Those who are born under the sign of Cancer are overseen by Archangel Gabriel, who works with the color Orange and rules the Moon.
Cancerians are often mistaken for being quite passive, but there’s more than meets the eye. Cancerians are extremely active underneath the surface, bringing to the world their attributes of sympathy and high sensitivity.

Cancer feels the need of balancing the emotions at all levels.

Those born under the sign of Cancer are very good at helping others, particularly in encouraging the growth and development of every human being’s potential.


The downside of Cancer is jealousy and possessiveness.
When Cancer loves someone, they consider her/him as their property and make everything they can to exert control over them.
Relationships are indeed extremely important to Cancerians, but although they strive for long-term relationships and deep intimacy, their vulnerability in the realm of emotion makes them mistrustful. Besides, Cancer sometimes pushes it’s possessiveness to the very limits. Any person they consider to be ‘theirs’ is subject to being controlled at any moment.

Cancer can be the most jealous sign of the zodiac because of its typical negative tendency: possessiveness and tenaciousness.

But this jealousy can be healed by Gabriel, who rules over the Moon, also considered the Astro-mom by definition. The gentle, emotion-driven moon is the Astro mom for every zodiac sign. It is even more true for Cancer. According to Lisa Stardust "The Moon represents our inner emotions, the parts within us which we cannot express.” "It also represents our maternal side, our mother, and our memories”.

The maternal side of the Moon can help the Cancerians to let go of their possessiveness towards their partner, making room for a more compassionate approach to their significant other. Nurturing, sensitive, and ruling over matters of security, the moon governs over the shadowy, more vulnerable sides of Cancerians, as well as the things they need to feel safe and reassured.

LEO – Archangel Michael
The zodiac sign of Leo is ruled by Archangel Michael, who works on the Blue Ray and rules on the Sun.
Those who are born under the sign of Leo are given the personality traits of generosity, openness, and tenacity.
Leos are gifted with excellent organizational skills, particularly in areas where they can earn recognition for their skills and actions.

Archangel Michael aids with communication and protection and inspires one to become a seeker of higher truths and hidden knowledge.


Leos thrive on stress. They are naturally ‘designed’ to go leaps and bounds to achieve credit and both public and private recognition of their qualities. They tend to be surprised if some pole does not give them the credit they think they deserve.

Leo is tenacious and can’t just leave a job half-done. Leos are, by their very true nature, competitive and willing to win.

Their greatest attribute lies in their capacity to be intensely individual, while at the same time being extremely loyal and generous towards those they love. They would do anything they can to help and assist those they love. Nothing can stop them from helping their loved ones in their moments of need. Leo’s positive qualities also include warmth and sincerity, protectiveness, and affection.


Like any other zodiac sign, also Leos have a dark side.
They can be vain, with a tendency to show-off. Furthermore, they can be over-proud and sometimes selfish. They want things to be done their way, without a discussion, so they can be very authoritative.


To help Leo heal from their authoritative behavior, Archangel Michael uses the power of the Sun. The Sun is the center of our universe. It's Sun that gives us life. Likewise Leo, “The Sun represents what we are driven to do, our life-force," Stardust says. The sun is the ultimate source of light, and it's said that when Leos embrace the full power of the Sun, they immediately tend to feel happier and more fulfilled. They lose their authoritative temper and become, in their turn, beacons of light for all those they love, be they their significant other, their family, or their friends.

VIRGO – Archangel Raphael
Archangel Raphael rules over the star sign of Virgo and, likewise the zodiac sign of Gemini, the planet Mercury.
Archangel Raphael is one of the principal angels of healing.
The zodiac sign of Virgo brings within the qualities of efficiency and an analytical mind. Virgo’s are known to be hardworking. They do not like to do things lightheartedly and always pay great attention to detail. They can analyze every possibility and to weigh up the pros and cons before making their decisions and taking their actions. Virgo is quite likely the most methodical of all zodiac signs.

Virgos can master the complexity of any subject they choose to tackle without any effort.


The positive qualities of this sign also lie in their helpful and unassuming nature. On the other hand, their negative qualities often appear in the form of daintiness. They tend to be excessively fault-finding and always ready to highlight other peoples’ frailties and faults. Because of their obsessive attention to detail, they are not exactly what we would call ‘quick decision-makers’. Indecisiveness is, indeed, one of the most negative aspects of their personality.


Virgos also tend to be shy and modest. Virgos prefer to work away from fuss and attention.

They prefer to quietly stay behind the scenes rather than in the limelight. Virgos hate drama and negative energy.

As a consequence, they tend to be at their wit’s end with worry when they are involved in a situation they do not like. When this happens, Raphael sends a message from Mercury to reassure the Virgo. The message can be delivered in many ways, be it through a TV program, or a road panel, or a song on the radio. The message normally contains words of patience, lightheartedness, and inner tranquillity. This message helps the Virgos in clearing their mind and becoming able to endure any problem with a light heart and without any form of anxiety.

LIBRA – Archangel Hagiel
Archangel Hagiel is the ruler of the sign of Libra and rules over the planet Venus. The name Libra speaks for itself. Those born under this sign of Libra are lovers of harmony and in constant need of a stable, balanced environment. They are also gifted with the traits of being harmonious and diplomatic.

When Librans have to make an important decision, they are never driven by emotions. Rather, they prefer to weigh things up and come to an impartial conclusion. Librans seek to always balance both the body and soul, the mind, and spirit. But trying to find a balance at any cost can be exhausting. Libras weigh the pros and cons of an uncountable number of possibilities.

One of the biggest problems Librans have to face when making decisions is, indeed, uncertainty.

Librans love knowledge and are gifted with an incredible ability to learn things of any kind. But when it comes to making decisions, they do not have a great deal of initiative. So when such problems arise, Archangel Hagiel calls Venus to help the Libra to get out of the quagmire of their indecision. As previously said, Hagiel is linked with planet Venus, the planet of love but also of self-esteem and money. Librans lack self-esteem, and this is why they tend to delay final decisions. Venus can help the Librans to achieve the self-esteem they lack, giving them the determination they need to overcome their indecisions.

SCORPIO –  Archangels Azrael and Camael
Scorpio is overseen and ruled by the Archangels Azrael and Camael.
Archangel Azrael is a ‘shepherd’ angel who rules the planet Pluto.
Archangel Camael rules over the planet Mars.

Those born under the zodiac sign of Scorpio are gifted with powerful and intense personalities.


Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of ‘hidden things’. Pluto is the planet of transformations, the underworld, the subconscious mind, and hidden power. Because of this, the Scorpio can sometimes become a little paranoid and obsessed about what is going on around them in their lives. It might seem weird, but Scorpios do not perceive their paranoid attitude as a sign of weakness. On the contrary, they see it as a sign of cleverness and patience.

Generally speaking, Scorpios are well known for their powerful emotional natures.

They hold on tenaciously to what is theirs and refuse to yield anything without a fight. Scorpios love to fight, but sometimes they do not realize that fighting at any cost can be both exhausting and pointless. Their fierce determination can reveal itself negatively and ruthlessness. Sometimes it would be good if Scorpio could choose peace over war. But the deepest nature of Scorpio hides a bit of aggressiveness, and it seems they are just waiting for something to happen to start a fight.

Part of the Scorpio’s enigmatic and charismatic personality is filled with a bit of anger and resentment. But they also are capable of immense Love and protection.

Scorpios can even sacrifice their own lives for someone they love. The positive qualities of those born under the sign of Scorpio include tremendous loyalty and a sense of responsibility. The downside can be possessiveness and jealousy, as well as a tendency to be self-destructive. They also seem angry but outwardly calm, with a potential for destruction. Likewise a sleeping lion that is ready to catch their prey, Scorpios seem calm but it is exactly one second before some rages within them are ready to explode, like a ticking bomb.

Once a Scorpio loses interest in anything or anybody, the lack of feeling is suddenly and instantly noticeable. They can suddenly lose interest and never retrace their footsteps.


If Scorpios think that someone has betrayed them, they can be quite relentless with their ‘offenders’.
Theoretically this is all good, and it seems that Scorpio is a reckless zodiac sign, capable of incredible acts of generosity, driven by integrity, and always ready to fight for what they believe is worth fighting (and even dying) for. But a bit more of a balance would be at least very useful! Scorpios know no middle-ground, and this is the most negative aspect of their personality.

To bring a bit of balance and harmony into a Scorpio, Archangels Camael and Azrael join to help Scorpios. Camael indeed oversees Mars (the planet of war) but when it comes to helping the Scorpio to become less impulsive, Mars acts as a peacemaker, directing the flow of rage of the Scorpio towards a war on self-analysis and inner consciousness that lefts nothing unsolved. Scorpio normally cannot stand ‘normality’, but in this case Azrael calls in his qualities of ‘good shepherd’, thus helping the Scorpio in his transition from anger to inner peace.

The two Archangels, and the planets they oversee, merge to create a path of self-awareness that helps the Scorpio to get rid of impulsiveness and make room for more compassion in his life.

SAGITTARIUS – Archangel Zadkiel
The star sign of Sagittarius is ruled by the Archangel Zadkiel, who works with the Violet Ray, focusing on spiritual growth and self-realization.
Archangel Zadkiel rules the planet Jupiter.

Those born under the influence of Sagittarius have the attributes of being optimistic and adventurous.


Sagittarians are, by their very nature, intuitive and imaginative. They are gifted with wonderful ideas and creative visions. They also like to share their opinions and ideas with others. Sagittarians can be very good philosophers and teachers, but very rarely they can be engineers. Sagittarians do not like to find obstacles and restrictions along their path, so the act of putting their ideas and visions into practice is seen as a chore. They prefer to leave this task to be completed by other people because they do not like to be told what to do. Let’s call it a form of outsourcing…


The positive qualities of Sagittarians include positivity, generosity, creativity, and love of life.

The negative qualities include a tendency to be dogmatic, strict, and sometimes tactless. They can be very opinionated when someone ‘dares’ to contradict their ideas.
When this happens, and Sagittarians manifest the negative traits of their personality, Archangel Zadkiel calls in Jupiter. Jupiter brings growth, positivity, opportunity, and good vibes into Sagittarians’ lives. What can be more inspiring and mood changing than the energy of this powerful planet? This big planet is a spreader of positive and good cheer, so when Sagittarius embraces Jupiter's positive vibes, suddenly they negative personality traits melt away like snow in the sun.

CAPRICORN – Archangel Asariel
Archangel Asariel rules the zodiac sign of Capricorn and overseas the planet Neptune.
Those born under the sign of Capricorn are usually careful and responsible in all that they undertake. Capricorns thrive for being socially accepted and when they aren't, they suffer a lot.
Capricorns also desire status and a high position in the world, whenever possible. But Capricorn knows it’s ‘a long way to the top if you wanna rock & roll’ so they are ready to work hard to reach their life goals.


Their strong sense of determination and willpower eventually carry Capricorns to achieve their goals, be they financial goals, or career goals. Capricorns can be very resolute in their intentions and straight in their actions.


One of Capricorn’s greatest qualities lies in their ability in organizing things of any kind. They are always focused on the outcome of their efforts, leaving no room for what is not necessary. Another great quality of all Capricorns is the love for their family with a soft spot for family traditions. They always keep correct and respectful behavior within the context of family and/or society. Capricorns also like to be organized but can be overly cautious.

The downside of Capricorns lies in their pessimistic attitude and tendency to constantly worry about something.
Most of their worries and concerns cause them to be often in a bad mood because of their fear of the future. To help Capricorns to get rid of their fears and have a more relaxed attitude towards life, Archangel Asariel calls in Neptune, the planet of intuition, dreams, spirituality, and idealism. Under the influence of Neptune, Capricorns find a way to get rid of their fears and begin to see things from a different perspective. A perspective that is worry-fee, filled with positive thoughts about the future. Neptune helps those born under the sign of Capricorn to become aware of their inner power, their tenacity, and their Integrity, thus making them able to appreciate all the good in their lives.

AQUARIUS – Archangels Uriel and Cassiel
The Archangels Uriel and Cassiel rule the sign of Aquarius.
Archangel Uriel works with the Ruby Ray and rules the planet Uranus.
Archangel Cassiel rules the planet Saturn and likewise Archangel Azrael is a ‘shepherd angel’.

Aquarius is the sign of the zodiac that mostly matches the concept of Oneness. Aquarians have a strong inclination towards humanitarian acts of kindness. Aquarians think of humanity as a whole, and see everybody as a perfect part of a perfect whole.

They are constantly inspired to work for the Greater Good. Their main qualities include generosity, idealism, a vision of a better world, and a strong determination in achieving their goals. The negative side of their personality arises when Aquarians are stuck in the quagmire of other people’s problems. They do not want to be embroiled in the world of personal relationships, nor they want to be involved in hearing of other people’s problems and difficulties.

They surely want to help others, but starting from their own place of inner tranquillity.

When a problem arises, their earnest nature leaves no room for jokes and fun.
An Aquarian can instantly turn from enthusiastic to aloof, from idealistic to fanatic. It’s a no-compromise zone of their minds that can cause Aquarians to have difficulties in having profound relationships with other people. When this happens the Archangels Uriel and Cassiel come to help, calling in the powers of Uranus and Saturn. According to Bustle: “If the moon is our cosmic mom, then Saturn is our cosmic dad.”

Saturn wants us to learn and grow, starting from our mistakes, faults, and frailties. Saturn wants the Aquarius to not lose their temper, but to make it merge with the Unconditional Love that is a meaningful part of their beautiful personality. Another help comes from Uranus, which is considered the 'Great Awakener,' carrying with it all the qualities of a forward-thinking, hyper-creative mind and soul. These qualities can help the Aquarians to go beyond their difficulty in opening their hearts to other people, making them merge in their ideal world: that of Oneness.

PISCES – Archangels Asariel and Zadkiel
The star sign of Pisces is ruled and overseen by the Archangels Asariel and Zadkiel
Archangel Asariel rules the planet Neptune
Archangel Zadkiel rules the planet Jupiter and works on the Violet Ray focusing on self-transformation and spiritual growth.

Pisces are gifted with artistic and emotional traits.

Pisceans are by their very nature a ‘feeling type’ who acts and reacts according to how they feel rather than to what is logical. They are idealistic, romantic, and sensitive, as well as inclined to self-sacrifice. Pisceans are romantic about everything and they love to love. Every single aspect of their life must contain some element of romance, or they become bored, seemingly annoyed, and then they lose interest.


The positive aspects of Pisces are those of kindness, a deep and peace-loving attitude towards others, and of being responsive to the sorrows of others.


Generally speaking, Pisceans have a soft spot for the ‘underdog’. They are generous, sympathetic, and understanding, but the downside of their personality brings them to become too ‘moody’ and even upset. It’s their strong sensitivity that makes them vulnerable to other people’s woes, to the point they cannot bear this weight. This is when they become irritable and upset. It is a form of ‘counter-reaction’ to the suffering of this world.

To help the Pisces to get rid of their extra sensitivity and become optimistic, Archangel Zadkiel calls in Jupiter, the planet of good luck, abundance, optimism, and expansiveness. Everything the Pisces is sometimes lacking (optimism, expansiveness, and joy of life) become available to the thought he power of Jupiter, the Big planet whose positive energy spreads good vibes across the Universe.

Pisces are positively influenced by Jupiter, which can eventually help Pisces to regain the joy of living they sometimes lose because of their extraordinary sensitivity. Life is Beautiful!
