An angel (Greek: angelos, "messenger") is a celestial being believed to function as
a messenger or agent of God in CHRISTIANITY, ISLAM, JUDAISM, and ZOROASTRIANISM. In
the Near Eastern antecedents to Judaism, angels were often understood to be gods or
lesser divinities. Their existence was taken for granted by the biblical authors.
The use of the word angel may have been a way of describing what was believed to be
an appearance of God himself in human form.
In the Old Testament, angels are called "messengers," "men," "powers," "princes,"
"sons of God," and the "heavenly host." They either have no body or one that is only
apparent. They come as God's messengers to aid or punish, are assigned to individual
persons or nations, and often have a name (Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel). New
Testament statements about angels reflect Jewish views of these beings. Angels, for
example, announced Christ's birth (Luke 2) and resurrection (Matt. 28).
Ancient and medieval peoples widely accepted the influence of good spirits, or
angels, and evil spirits, or fallen angels (DEMON; SATAN). During the Middle
Ages, theologians developed a hierarchy of angels. They were classified in the
following nine ranks (beginning with the lowest): angels, archangels,
principalities, powers, virtues, dominations, thrones, cherubim, and seraphim.
Angels are a popular subject in folklore, literature, and art.
There are also angels that govern the days of the week and , months of the year., and for each planet. I don't know where these beliefs originated, but I am sure sometime in the early history of man. Following is a list of the angels for each month of the year.
Each angel is also believed to govern a day together with a planet.
Gabriel: Monday, moon
Samael: Tuesday, Mars
Raphael: Wednesday ,Jupiter
Sachiel: Thursday, Saturn
Anael: Friday ,Venus
Cassiel: Saturday ,Saturn
Michael: Sunday sun

Although I don't believe in using Astrology or telling the future with it, I do believe that the heavens declare God's glory and tell the story of Christ and his church. I am looking into the study by Marylin Hickey. The sign or Virgo for example is suppose to represent the virgin birth of Christ. While I was at the Science Museum in Toronto they had a exhibition which showed that all the planets had now progressed into the next constellation. Which means that if you think you were born under one sign you actually were born in the next one. When I get all the information of this special zodiac study I will update this page.
