Aariel ("lion of God") - the name of an angel that is inscribed on an Ophitic (Gnostic) amulet along with the god Ialdabaoth.

Aba - an angel of wisdom who aids humans with their sexuality who may be invoked in cabalistic magickal rites. He also administers to Sarabotes who is the Friday ruler of the air.

Ababaloi(y) - an angel invoked during cabalistic rites, especially in Solomonic magick. He is named in the black-magic manual.

Abachta (Abagtha) - One of the rabbinical angels of confusion, the other six being Barbonah (Harbonah), Bigtha, Carcas, Biztha, Mehuman, and Zether. He is also mentioned as being one of the "pressers of the winepress" in Ginzberg's The Legends of the Jews.

Abaddon a.k.a. Apollyon ("Destroyer") - an angel of death & destruction who is often equated with Satan & Samael. However, in the Book of Revelation he is the angel (as Apollyon), or star, of the bottomless abyss who chains Satan there for 1,000 years. It is believed that St. John was the first person to name Abaddon as an angel and, in The Greater Key of Solomon, he is said to be the angel invoked by Moses to send the devastating rains to Egypt. Not only is Abaddon's alignment (demon or angel) uncertain, other sources say that he is, in fact, a place and not an entity at all.

Support for the belief that Abaddon is a being of evil origin can be found in such writings as the Acts of Thomas, that don't conform to church law. There he is presented as a demon. This demon is described as the dark angel of death, a demon of the abyss, and one of the princes of the infernal hierarchy, often seen as Satan himself (as he is labeled in Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress). In The Messiah by Klopstock, Abaddon is again labeled "death's dark angel," a reference to Francis Thompson's poem To the English Martyrs in which he assigns Abaddon a pair of "hooked wings." A Pictorial Anthology of Witchcraft, Magic, and Alchemy calls Abaddon the "Destroying Angel of the Apocalypse and in Barrett's The Magus there is a color picture of him as one of the "evil demons." It is also written that his is the name that the Jewish gave to the Greek God Apollyon. And, as the final argument for him being an evil entity, his name is said to be used in conjuring spells for malicious intent. It is only in the sources mentioned in the first paragraph, that Abaddon is said to be an angel.

Among the sources that consider Abaddon to be a place is The Thanksgiving Hymns, discovered among the Dead Sea Scrolls, where there is mention of "the Sheol (Hell) of Abaddon" and "the torrents of Belial [that] burst into Abaddon." Other authorities, such as the First Century publication The Biblical Antiquities of Philo, also refer to Abaddon as sheol. Milton uses Abaddon as the name of a pit in his book Paradise Regained, and the cabalist Joseph ben Abraham Gikatilla says that Abaddon is the name of the sixth lodge of the seven lodges of Hell (arka) and that it is presided over by the angel Pasiel.

Abadon - according to the Zohar (which is where this spelling is found), Abadon describes the infernal hierarchies and the nether world.

Abadona (the repentant one) - one of the rebellious Seraphim who later repented his sins against the Creator. But according to Christian doctrine, the fallen angels can't repent because once they've sinned against God their essence is totally corrupted by evil.

Abbadona - a fallen angel formerly of the Seraphim who, prior to his fall, was the chosen companion of Abdiel. According to Klopstock in The Messiah, he is not fully committed to the rebellion and is complaining about his decision to abandon God. Because of this he is often referred to as "the penitent angel." In spite of his repentant cries are unheeded however because, according to Catholic doctrine, once an angel has sinned he must always remain evil, for his mind is no longer capable of thinking of anything else.

Abbaton - one of the names of Death and one of the guardian spirits of the gates of Hell. In the Greater Key of Solomon he is one of God's angels who is invoked during magickal ceremonies to control evoked spirits.

Abdia ("servant") - One of the angels whose name is inscribed on the outer circle of the Solomon's pentagram. He is also listed in Waite's Lemegeton, a book of black magick, thought this does not necessarily mean that he is evil. Many good and great angels are included in such works. There are also many holy angels residing in Hell, serving God's purpose - just as there are unholy angels living in Heaven (such as the the Grigori).

Abdiel a.k.a. Abadiel ("Servant of God") - In the Jewish cabalistic Book of Raziel from the middle ages, he is an angel of the celestial hierarchies. In Paradise Lost, he is one of the radiant Seraphim (a "flaming seraph") who defeats the rebel angels Ariel, Arioc, and Ramiel. He is also credited with defeating Satan, himself, brining about his fall with a "mighty sword stroke". In The Revolt of the Angels by fiction writer Anatole France, Abdiel appears as an angel named Arcade. In the Bible (I Chronicles), Abdiel is not an angel, but a human who lives in Gilead, a Gedite. This is the undisputed origin of the name.

Abel ("meadow") - an angelic ruler of the Fourth Heaven, who is always invoked in the east of a magick circle.

As a ruler of Egypt he is said to have fought against Moses by hardening Pharaoh's heart against the Lawgiver and assisting Pharaoh's magicians. When the Red Sea was closed, Abezi-Thibod was drowned along with Pharaoh's warriors, making him a demon of that very body of water.

To the Gnostics (Abraxis) it was originally used to symbolize the aeons or the cycles of creation and is considered to be God's true name and a supreme unknown. In theEncyclopedia of Religions by Forlong, Basilides, a Gnostic writer, is said to have invented Abraxas. In his writings he claims that Abraxas was the archon-ruler of 365 Heavens, and that he served as a mediator between earth's creatures and the godhead. To the Persians, he is the source of the 365 divine emanations identified with the days of the year.

The word "Abracadabra," which was believed in ancient times to cure fevers and other illnesses, is said to come from this name. In fact, the name Abraxas has often been found engraved on gems that are either used as amulets or for incantations.

In ancient mythology Abraxas is included among the demons, and said to be a member of the Egyptian pantheon.

He is reputed to be a terrible demon that was corrupted by having sexual relations with human women.

The Apocalypse of Abraham describes him as "lord of hell, seducer of mankind." In The Zohar he is the rider on the serpent and chief of the bene elim (a.k.a. ischm, lower angels, and "men-spirits").

Azrael a.k.a. Azrail, Ashriel, Azriel, Azaril, Gabriel, etc. ("whom God helps") - the regent angel of Scorpio, often grouped with Gabriel and Azaril. A Jewish and Muslim angel of death, he lives in the Third Heaven. Muslims team him up with Raphael and describe him as having 70,000 feet and 4,000 wings. His body is said to be covered with as many eyes and tongues as there are people on Earth. In Arabic lore, he is "forever writing in a large book and forever erasing what he writes; what he writes is the birth of a man, what he erases is the name of the man at death." Because Azrael was the only angel of the four sent to create Adam who succeeded in providing the necessary seven handfuls of earth, he was appointed to separate body from soul. Oriental lore says that Azrael accomplishes this (first bringing death and then separation) by holding an apple from the Tree of Life to the nose of the dying person. He is one of three Syriac angels (the others being Michael and Gabriel) invoked in creating charms. Jewish mystics consider Azrael to be quite the opposite, describing him as the embodiment of evil.

His name has been found inscribed upon an oriental charm (kameoth) used to ward off evil. And, in Ozar Midrashim Azriel is one of the chief angels of destruction.

Azur - See Azar.

Azza a.k.a. Shem-yaza ("the strong") - a fallen angel who, along with Azzael, is trapped between Heaven and earth for having had sexual relations with human women. Azza (Shemyaza, meaning "the name Azza") is said to be perpetually falling with one eye frozen open and the other sealed shut so that he can constantly see his plight, causing him to suffer all the more. Another explanation given for Azza being kicked out of Heaven is that he objected to Enoch being transformed into the angel Metatron upon his death. Azza is credited with making Solomon wisest of all men by teaching him the heavenly arcana. In the Talmud he is said to have, along with Azael fathered the sedim (Assyrian guardian spirits) via the mortal woman Naamah, daughter of Lemech, prior to the great deluge. It is said that prior to his fall, Azza was in charge of one of the two groups of justice that now fall under Metatron's command.

Azzael - according to some sources Azzael and Azza are two separate and distinct angels, while others say they are one and the same. In the beginning of 3 Enoch Azzael is on of three ministering angels, the other two being Uzza and Azza, who reside in the Seventh Heaven. Later in the book, however, he is identified as a fallen angel and labeled one of the makim along with Azza. He and Uzza were both punished for having carnal knowledge of mortal women by having their noses pierced. Azzael taught the art of witchcraft to man, which allows, or did allow, one to cause the sun, moon, and stars to fall from the sky, bringing them closer to earth for the purpose of worshipping. See Azza.
