Cassiel, (Hebrew: Kafziel) is
the latin name of an angel in post-biblical Judeo-Christian
mythology, particularly that of the Cabbala. Unlike
many other angels, Cassiel is known for simply
watching the events of the cosmos unfold with
little interference. He is the angel of solitude
and tears, and is said to preside over the deaths
of kings. In the MAGUS, he has been shown to have
a beard and riding a dragon in some works.
Archangel Cassiel : Appears
as an old man, as depicted in many Tarot Cards
(The Hermit) , Holding a Lantern, Staff and may
also hold an hourglass. (The Pillars
of Tubal-Cain p256. - Nigel Jackson & Michael
Howard, Capall Bann Publishing. UK. 2003).
Remember Angels are personal to you and tend
to correspond to your mental image of them.
The Tarot Card related to the Archangel Cassiel
and the Planet Saturn is The Universe XXI (The
World XXI) and the Devil (XV)
The world of success differs for every person,
but Tarot card No 21 signifies that the private
world of the enquirer - his personal hopes and
ambitions - will be fulfilled and success will
be reward his efforts. The Devil is called the
Devil or the want of a better name. Temptation
is a better description as it represents many
of the evils that befall man. (The
Prediction Book of The Tarot. - page 107 &
124 - Madeline Montalban. Javelin Books UK. 1986.)
