of the Angels of Men - A Brief Introduction:
Magic of the Angels of Men, also referred to as the Pauline
Art, is an ancient system of practical ritual magic performed
with the intention of contacting one’s own Birth Angels.
The system does not use complicated or highly ornate rituals,
it is magic for everyday life and offers many individual
and personal ways to contact your Angels, depending upon
your needs and situation. The principles of Angelic teachings
have been neglected for many years, with only a few Magus’s
keeping the practice alive. In order to stop this loss of
information The Order Lux Lucis of Rose (The Order of the
Light of the Rose) has been formed, whose primary aim is
to recover, consolidate and publish this near lost information.
Angelic tradition holds that there is only on One God,
the Universal Creator, who sub-divided His powers into many
Archangels, Angels and Lesser Angels. For our Solar System
He appointed to each planet, an Archangel, with other Angels
for the two Zodiacal divisions of each sign.
The function of these Archangels is to teach evolving man
the sacred Kabbala, which, in simple terms, states that
the Universe is linked together, from the lowest to the
highest, in one interwoven mesh. At the head is the Creator;
at the lowest level the first life found in the primeval
ponds from which sprang life, and which would evolved into
Man, by evolution and reincarnation.
The Creators plan was for Man, in time, is to become a
full spiritual, mental and physically evolved human. To
achieve this Man was therefore to develop into an intelligent,
instructed human; he was to develop His soul through countless
reincarnations. Until ultimately man would know all that
the Angels know. To this end Man was to be instructed by
the Planetary Angels, called the Teaching Angels. Each of
us has two angels, A Sun Angel and a Moon Angel, both where
present at your birth. [To

Man would, through countless incarnations and spiritual
development, come under the influence of each Archangel
in turn, and learn how the planets influence the lives and
destinies of men. In order to use this wisdom taught by
the Archangels he first must be sufficiently spiritually
evolved, in order to exercise the Creators greatest gift,
Freewill. Man may be under the absolute rulership of the
planets, but freewill will give him the power to choose
his own destiny. The planets and stars may incline but not
compel as this evolved human mind is capable of using freewill
and guided thought, holding to that which is good.
To those with minds sufficiently evolved, the Teaching
Angels were to teach their own secrets, to make man equal
in knowledge to themselves, so that man would, in time,
attain to Angelhood himself. When this was achieved, he
would be absorbed into the Body of the Creator, he would
then be reborn, this time as an Angel himself, and be given
the dominion over some new planet in the universe, to teach
in those beings evolving, as Man himself had done.
The Pauline Art, named after St Paul, who saw 'a blinding
light of truth or the light of the Angels’ and who
later in life found confirmation of it among the religious
practices of the Simeonites and Essenes. What he found was
this: "That the ritual of Invocation of the Angels
of the Day and Night and the Zodiacal degrees, was called
'The Magic of the Angels of Man' a system of astrological
magic similar to the method of Enochian Tables as used by
Dr Dee and Edward Kelly, but far less complex.
So when you study the Magic of the Angels of Men you are
treading a tradition that goes back to the dawn of time,
and what you learn, is not only true magic but also the
basis of all magic. It is secret only because few have the
ability or inclination to devote their lives to the study.
If you decide to tread this path what you will learn through
the study of the Magic of the Angels of Men is simple, the
only devil is ignorance. So do not confuse this Magic with
the so-called Black Arts, the Magic of the Angels of Men
enables you to make the best of yourself and your talents
at your current stage of spiritual development. It gives
rewards for efforts made.
Remember the definition of Magic in the context of the
“Magic of the Angels of Men” literally means
“Prayer” - It is the art that purports to control
or forecast natural events, effects, or forces by invoking
the Archangels, by petition and action.
Magic has therefore two principal meanings:
Firstly, it has signified the pursuit by adepts of a highly
elevated and esoteric form of wisdom based on the perceived
presence in the world of mystical patterns and intelligence's,
possessing real efficacy in nature and in human affairs.
Secondly, it has been applied as a term of disapproval
by theologians and other intellectuals and professionals
wishing to condemn various popular practices and techniques
because of their perceived inefficacy in nature and human
In the first context, important from antiquity down to
the high Renaissance, magic was magia, the highest form
of (natural) philosophy; and it this philosophy that the
practitioners of the Pauline Art strive to understand.
