The Sephiroth, Archangels and which spells to do


Spells are not done often with the energies of Kether, Chokmah and Malkuth.


Spells are done with the entities of Binah, Chesed, Geburah, Tiphareth, Netzach, Hod and Yesod. In this post you will find information about each sphere on the Tree of Life, life issues and suitable magickal work.

Also, I fould online some old books for reference and to compare the sigils. One of them contains the seals of the Heptameron.

The Hebrew spelling of the names of the Archangels (for the seals) is taken from the “Three books of Occult Philosophy” written by H. C. Agrippa and also from “Secrets of the magickal Grimoires” written by Aaron Leitch.

The Key of Solomon, The three books of Occult philosophy (H. C. Agrippa), and also Israel Regardie’s Golden Dawn magickal system make a difference between the planetary Archangels and the Archangels that rule the Sephiroth.

Sometimes I do not think that Sachiel is Tzadkiel and that Zaphkiel is Cassiel. But during other times I think that Haniel and Anael are one and the same.

The planetary Archangels are mentioned in the Heptameron, in Faust’s Magia Naturalis and in some other sources.




Archangel Tzaphkiel is the chief of Binah. Binah is ruled by the planet Saturn.


The seal of Archangel Tzaphkiel (ruler of Binah).


This seal is obtained by drawing lines between Hebrew letters in the name Tzaphkiel. Israel Regardie shows how to draw such sigils, and the seal of Tzaphkiel is in the Golden Dawn book.



The seal of the planetary Archangel of Saturn, Cassiel (Heptameron).


Some people summon Cassiel instead of Tzaphkiel as the Archangel of Binah. I read “A modern Grimoire of Angelic magick” by Fr. Rufus Opus and I loved it! I started to gravitate towards working only with the planetary Archangels (from the Heptameron).

Tzaphkiel (because he rules Binah) can help you to:

heal your depressions (limit them)

heal emotional discord and grief (limit them)

resolve conflicts

protect you from the plots of others against you (use the 3rd pentacle of Saturn)

release the past

release old grudges and bitterness

forgive someone you hate

develop your intuition

set clear psychological boundaries (to make people respect you)

expand your power in many aspects of your life

expand the boundaries of your luck

The duties of the planetary Archangel of Saturn, Cassiel, and the spirits under him, are described in the Heptameron:

The sprits of Saturday sow discords and hate. They serve to eliminate your enemies.





The seal nr. 1 of Archangel Tzadkiel (ruler of Chesed).


Archangel Tzadkiel is chief of Chesed. The sphere of Chesed is ruled by the planet Jupiter. Tzadkiel can help you to:

obtain material stability

avert financial disaster (use in combination with the 7th pentacle of Jupiter from the Key of Solomon)

help to curb dangerous overspending

wisely manage your income

forgive and become a happy person


The seal nr. 2 of Tzadkiel from the Armadel.



The seal of Sachiel from the Heptameron.


Some people believe that Sachiel and Tzadkiel are one and the same. They also believe in the possibility that there was a mistake in the spelling of the name Tzadkiel and it was written as Sachiel.

It might be so. But Sachiel is also mentioned in the Key of Solomon as a planetary Angel. Tzadkiel is also mentioned in the Key of Solomon and it is said that he rules Chesed.

I have summoned Tzadkiel by using the seal assigned to Sachiel, and I was happy with the result.

I summoned Tzadkiel by using his other seal (seal number 1) many times.

This information about Sachiel and the spirits under him comes from the Heptameron:

The spirits of Thursday can help you to procure the love of the opposite sex and they help people to become happy with their lives.

They end all strife and also end battles with enemies; they can heal illness.






The seal of Archangel Khamael (ruler of Geburah).


Archangel Khamael is chief of Geburah. The sphere of Geburah is ruled by the planet Mars. Archangel Khamael can help you to:

become a brave person

temper your anger and stay in emotional balance

protect yourself from enemies (use the 4th pentacle of Mars)

release issues that hold you back

become a disciplined person

become a person with good self-esteem


The seal of Khamael (actually Samael) from the Heptameron.


The seal of Khamael (above) comes from the Heptameron. In some versions, this Archangel is called Samael (Mars is his planet).

As you see, there is a lot of confusion regarding who is who. Perhaps, the Archangels are of two types:

those who rule the Sephiroth

and those who are planetary (Heptameron)

The duties of the planetary Archangel of Mars, Khamael (Samael/Zamael) are described in the Heptameron:

The spirits of Tuesday cause wars and death. They give the practitioner 2000 soldiers to battle down enemies.





Archangel Raphael rules Tiphareth.


According to the “Three books of Occult philosophy” (H. C. Agrippa), Archangel Raphael rules Tiphareth. I took the spelling of his name in Hebrew from that book.

Some say that the Archangel of Tiphareth is Michael (the planetary Archangel of Sun), and some say it is Raphael. This is because of different information in the old Grimoires.

Raphael (Archangel of the Sephira Tiphareth) and Michael (planetary Archangel of the Sun) work as a team in Tiphareth.


The seal of the planetary Archangel of Sun, Michael (Heptameron).


You can use the seal of the planetary Archangel of Sun, Michael (from Heptameron) when you call upon Raphael (Source: “A modern Grimoire of Angelic magick” by Fr. Rufus Opus).

It is said so about the planetary Archangel Michael and the spirits under him (in the Heptameron):

The spirits of Sunday help to obtain gold and riches; they cause the practitioner to obtain favours and good things in life.

They help to dissolve the hatred of enemies and also help to become successful in life.





The seal of Archangel Haniel (ruler of Netzach).


Archangel Haniel is chief of Netzach. The sphere of Netzach is ruled by the planet Venus. Archangel Haniel can help you to:

attract love into your life

live a pleasurable life

become inspired

remove blocks to your creativity

to become happy

The planetary Archangel of Venus is Anael.


The seal of Anael from the Heptameron.


This information about Anael and the spirits under this Archangel comes from the Heptameron:

The spirits of Friday make people happy and incline them to luxury. They reconcile enemies through luxury.

They help in matters of love and make marriages.





The seal of Archangel Michael (ruler of Hod).


Archangel Michael is chief of Hod. The sphere of Hod is ruled by the planet Mercury.

Also, Archangel Raphael (his seal is found in the Heptameron) is the planetary Archangel of the planet Mercury (as I understand the matter). Both Michael and Raphael rule the sphere of Hod.


The seal of the planetary Archangel of Mercury, Raphael (the Divine healer). Heptameron.


Archangel Michael can help you to:

expand your business

fluently write books

curb your addictions

become focused on your work

develop learning skills and memory

develop your teaching skills

find sources of information

The duties of the planetary Archangel of Mercury, Raphael, and the spirits under him, are these ones:

The spirits of Wednesday reveal things you want to know about the past, present and future. They help to win court cases and help to resolve conflicts between people.

They teach sciences and heal people. They raise the poor and cast down the rich ones. They eliminate obstacles in life.

The seal of Archangel Gabriel (ruler of Yesod).


Archangel Gabriel is chief of Yesod. Also, the planetary Archangel of the Moon is Gabriel. His seal is found in the Heptameron.


The seal of the planetary Archangel Gabriel (Heptameron).


The sphere of Yesod is ruled by the planet Moon. Archangel Gabriel can help you to:

do divinations (Tarot, crystal balls, pendulums, etc.)

get answers to your questions during dream time

become accepting of change

develop your intuition

concieve a child (fertility spells)

retain facts in your memory

This information about the planetary Archangel Gabriel comes from the Heptameron:

The spirits of Monday can convey things (I guess messages) from place to place. They make horses swift (healthy). This could mean that they can heal both people and animals.

They help you to know the secrets of other people.



In conclusion:

How to work with these entities? You have to choose if you want to summon the planetary Archangels (from the Heptameron) and work with them, or if you want to summon the Archangels of the Sephiroth (you draw the seals by connecting the Hebrew letters).

Most probably, they are two different groups of entities, because of the difference in the seals and the difference in the Hebrew spelling of the names.
