What does Archangel Anael do for you?

Archangel Haniel is known as the angel of joy. She works to direct people who are searching for fulfillment to God, who is the source of all joy. If you’ve become frustrated or disappointed looking for happiness and coming up short, you can turn to Haniel to develop the kind of relationship with God that will bless you with a truly enjoyable life, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in. All you have to do is be alert to signs that Haniel is present.

Experiencing Joy Within

Haniel’s signature way of communicating with people is by giving them a fresh sense of joy within their souls, believers say. In an instant, Haniel can change your mood from one of great hopelessness to one of great joy. Haniel brings harmony and balance wherever she goes and reminds you to find fulfillment from within rather than trying to find happiness from outside yourself. She reminds humans that external joy is fleeting, while the happiness that comes from within is never lost. Haniel “brings emotional freedom, confidence, and inner strength” and “ameliorates emotional turmoil by balancing the emotions.”

Discovering Something You Especially Enjoy Doing

Haniel may be encouraging you when you derive special joy from doing a particular activity, say believers. Haniel brings out hidden talents and helps us to find our true passions.

Finding Joy in Relationships

Another sign of Haniel’s presence is experiencing surges of joy in your relationships with God and other people, believers say. Haniel instills the desire to praise, celebrate, and glorify God in order to reignite the spark of vitality between the human and the divine.

Seeing Green or Turquoise Light

If you see green or turquoise light around you, Haniel may be nearby, believers say. Haniel works within both the green and white angel light rays, which represent healing and prosperity (green) and holiness (white). Haniel’s turquoise light signifies clear perception.

Noticing the Moon

Haniel may also try to send you a sign by drawing your attention to the moon, believers say, since the archangel has a special affinity for the moon.

Anael Hebrew: “Joy of God” or “Grace of God”, also known as Aniel.He is an Angel in Jewish lore and Angelology, and is often included in lists as being one of the seven archangels. The name Haniel probably derives from Hebrew hana’ah, “joy”, “pleasure” His family seal is a crescent moon with a small dove beneath it. From Hebrew hana’ah means”delight,” “enjoyment” plus el “God.” Haniel (Anael) means “the Grace of God” . He is listed in as one of the 7 Archangels. From a Kabbalistic perspective it is thought that this Angel escorted Enoch (Angel Metatron). 

There is conflicting descriptions of the Archangel Anael some believe that the Archangel is Anael is 5’2″ tall with straight light blond hair and one pair of large cream wings., others an androgynous figure long black hair and with large gray wings approximately 6′ 0″ tall. Some also say that the angel appears as Dressed in emerald green tunic and carrying a lantern. He holds a wand tipped with a pine cone and decorated with multi-coloured ribbons. Archangel Anael is reputed to be the daughter of the Archangel Michael. As hshe is also one of the Angels of creation, this is unlikely as God made all the cration Angels. One of the Angels of Creation, which includes: Anael, Orifel, Zachariel, Samael, Raphael, Gabriel & Michael. Chief of the Order of Principalities and Virtues. Ruler of the Second Heaven and in charge of prayers ascending from the 1st Heaven. The Second Heaven serves as the home of the Garden of Eden. It is also believed that both Paradise and Hell are contained in the second heaven on the “Northern Side” Prince of the Archangels and ruler of the Friday Angels. 

Venus, the jewel of the sky, was once know by ancient astronomers as the morning star and evening star. Early astronomers once thought Venus to be two separate bodies. Venus, which is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, is veiled by thick swirling cloud cover.

Astronomers refer to Venus as Earth’s sister planet. Both are similar in size, mass, density and volume. Both formed about the same time and condensed out of the same nebula. The astronomical symbol for Venus isa Circle above an equal armed cross. The Venus symbol has therefore been adopted to represents femininity, and in Western alchemy stood for the metal copper. Polished copper was used by the ancients to make mirrors, and thus the symbol for Venus has been interpretted to stand for the mirror of the goddess. The Patron Angel of Students, Teachers & Learning.

Signs & Symbols Related – Archangel Anael and Venus:

The Empress
The Lovers

The Tarot Card related to the Archangel Anael and the Planet Venus is the Empress (III) and the Lovers (XI):

The Empress signifies the female principle and embodies both the higher and lower aspects of Venus. For the Lovers this card is often mistakenly regarded as being concerned only with love affairs, mainly due to its title, yet it is not a card of love except on the superficial love. …. Putting this symbolism (in the card) together from its mystic aspect, we find that it offers a pictorial clue to an ancient magical system which involves the rites and ceremonies of the angel Metatron who is strongly associated with this card.
