Learn about the archangels who work with your birth chart in Doreen Virtue's Angel Astrology 101. Co-authored by the widely published astrologist and Angel Therapist Yasmin Boland, this is the first book to combine angelology and astrology.

The 12 beautifully illustrated and easy-to-understand chapters describe the personality characteristics of each of the sun, moon, and rising signs, as well as which archangels to call upon in association with them. Angel Astrology 101 is perfect for anyone who is new to these subjects-but it also offers plenty of fresh insights and material for those who have long worked with either astrology or the angels.

I started reading Angel Astrology 101: Discover the Angels Connected with Your Birth Chart by co-authors, Doreen Virtue and Yasmin Boland the moment I received it from Hay House Publishing for review. As a fan of astrology, I was curious to see how the authors connected the angels with each of the signs in the zodiac.

The "101" in the title suggests that the book is giving readers a light introduction into the background of astrology and the angelic realm. I would have to agree. A small amount of information is provided about our ancestors and their discovery and tracking of the planets. A quick mention of the Christian church and its ties to astrology is included, along with a few biblical references.

Each of the 12 chapters in the book is devoted to a particular astrological sign and includes: the corresponding archangel (based on the traits of a particular sign), and the meanings of the Sun, the Ascendant (rising) sign, the Moon, Mars, Venus and Mercury in that sign.

Some of the angel/astrological match-ups were pretty close, while others seemed to be a catchall for every symptom or issue one could think of...never mind a person's planetary makeup.

Overall the book was positive and fairly entertaining. I would recommend it to those who are somewhat new to astrology and/or angels. For the ones well-versed in the study of both subjects, there probably won't be anything new or remarkable to be had within the pages of Angel Astrology 101: Discover the Angels Connected with Your Birth Chart; but it's still a fun read.

I am very familiar with astrology but this the first time I became aware of Angel Astrology better known as angelogy. Doreen Virtue has teamed up and co-authored with astrologist and Angel Therapist Yasmin Boland to combine both astrology and angelogy. I found this book very easy to understand, very informative and the illustrations are beautiful.

When reading about the archangels that are associated with us and our natal birth signs validated many experiences that I have had in the past. Each astrological sign has a guardian archangel to help us along the path of life. My guardian is Sandalphon, who is often called the “Angel of Music.” In fact, Archangel Sandalphon often delivers messages through songs heard in the mind or on the radio. He’s around at those times when you hear just the song you need to. I have had personal experiences in the past while visiting Sedona where music has mysteriously began to play on my iPod when it had been tucked away in my pocket and turned off. Here is one example of the songs that began to play while I was sitting in a quiet state on the top of a very beautiful mountain and vortex.

The presumed Father of Astrology was a man named Hermes Trismegistus, whom Doreen wrote about in her book Angel Medicine. Doreen’s research showed that Hermes was a great teacher and leader in Atlantis, and then in Egypt, following the great Flood. He is said to be the grandson of the first man, Adam, and is also credited with the expression “As above, so below,” which he inscribed on the famous Emerald Tablet as part of his Hermetic teachings. The phrase means: What happens up in the Heavens is reflected down here on Earth. If you bear in mind Trismegistus’s assertion that “we are all connected to all life everywhere,” it’s not such a big leap to think that we’re also connected to the planets. * Ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Indians, Arabians, and Greeks, as well as Kabbalists in the Judaic tradition, all had input into the development of astrology as we know it now. Along the way, our ancestors noticed patterns among the dispositions of people according to their time, date, and place of birth. These observations also became the basis for modern natal astrology.

Just as everyone has an astrological birth chart, so do we all have assigned guardian angels. These are personal angels who are with you prior to birth, all throughout your life, and in Heaven after your physical passing. Guardian angels aren’t departed relatives; they are egoless celestial beings who are enacting God’s will of peace through everyone. Your guardian angels provide you with continuous love, support, and guidance. They also do their best to protect you, provided that you notice and follow their guidance in the form of warning thoughts, gut feelings, and signs. In addition to personal guardian angels, the archangels also provide guidance and protection. Archangels are large, powerful angels who oversee guardian angels. Each archangel has a specialty. For example, Archangel Michael offers protection and courage, Raphael administers healing, Gabriel provides nurturing and messages, Uriel shines light, and so forth. All of Heaven respects the free will of humans, so angels and archangels will never push their guidance upon you. Rather, they will wait until you pray to God for help, or ask for assistance. Only then are angels and archangels allowed to intervene. Fortunately, it doesn’t matter how you ask for Heavenly help—whether through formal prayer, affirmations, a fervent plea, a letter, or visualization.

All of the astrological signs have issues to deal with. We incarnate as a particular sign so we can face them. Here is a quick overview (you will have to purchase the book to get the full details!)of the Archangels associated with the astrological signs.

ARIES AND ARCHANGEL ARIEL
Archangel Ariel is also known as the “Angelic Ambassador of Divine Magic and Miraculous Manifestation.” She reminds you that anything is possible if you approach life with the innocence of a child.
TAURUS AND ARCHANGEL CHAMUEL
Archangel Chamuel reminds us that everything we seek is already inside us. No matter what your sign, if you’re having trouble in a relationship or a friendship, Chamuel is a great archangel to turn to for help.
GEMINI AND ARCHANGEL ZADKIEL
Zadkiel is about forgiveness that comes from the heart; while Gemini is associated with the intellect, the mind, and a talkative conversation style. Archangel Zadkiel can help you shift your focus from the negative to the positive.
CANCER AND ARCHANGEL GABRIEL
The Archangel Gabriel/Cancer pairing is a very warm and comforting combination. If you have any Cancerian friends, you’ll recognize how nurturing they are. Archangel Gabriel will help you find the answers to all your questions about how to best look out for others.
LEO AND ARCHANGEL RAZIEL
Archangel Raziel has a rainbow-colored aura that beautifully complements the sign of Leo, guided by the Sun. As the wizard and metaphysician of the archangels, Raziel has the power to heal.
VIRGO AND ARCHANGEL METATRON
Archangel Metatron uses an energy tool that is shaped from all the Platonic solids, called a Merkabah (or “Metatron’s Cube”), for healing and clearing away lower energies. For this reason, he works perfectly in tandem with Virgo—the sign associated so strongly with healing (conventional or alternative) and service to others.
LIBRA AND ARCHANGEL JOPHIEL
Archangel Jophiel is the “Angel of Beauty,” so she’s the perfect match for Libra—the sign guided by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Wherever you have Libra in your chart is where you can appreciate beauty, where you can hold beautiful thoughts, and where you can beautify your life. Jophiel helps us restore balance in our thoughts and in our living and working environments.
SCORPIO AND ARCHANGEL JEREMIEL
Archangel Jeremiel, whose specialties complement those on the Scorpio path. Jeremiel is one of the seven core archangels. His main role is to help newly crossed-over souls review their lives. Scorpios and Jeremiel plunge fearlessly into areas that the average person doesn’t want to acknowledge. They are truly fearless!
SAGITTARIUS AND ARCHANGEL RAGUEL
For Sagittarius, life is a game. And for Archangel Raguel, life is a party, because he’s the most sociable of all the archangels. His name means “Friend of God,” and his focus is on peace and harmony with everyone in the world.
CAPRICORN AND ARCHANGEL AZRAEL
Archangel Azrael gently heals grief-stricken hearts. Capricorns tend to have lives where a lot of karma is being balanced. So they may find interactions with others tough because they’re dealing with people who hurt them or whom they hurt in previous lives. The karmic test is whether Capricorns can forgive and release old pain and anguish. Archangel Azrael is very adept at healing the heart in those who have lost someone or something.
AQUARIUS AND ARCHANGEL URIEL
Aquarians are famous for being brilliant thinkers and the inventors of astrology. All that time they spend in their heads often leads to inspired ideas and inventions. That’s why the two energies of Uriel and Aquarius go so well together.
PISCES AND ARCHANGEL SANDALPHON
Pisces is the sign of the spiritual seeker, and Sandalphon is a master at helping people find inner peace. The two go hand in hand.

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

This is a wonderful introduction to connecting astrological signs with Archangels. Each are insightful self-awareness tools; combined they are an entirely new supportive way to learn about and accept oneself.

I especially like the fact that each Archangel is not exclusive to a particular astrological sign–they are there for anyone to call upon, regardless of similar traits to a given sign. I also appreciated that the astrological aspect goes beyond simply the sun sign–the moon, rising, Mercury, Venus, and Mars aspects are also explored. This book goes beyond a simple pairing of an astrological sign and an Archangel.

First off, go to the website given to cast your birth chart: http://www.angelastrology101.com/.

This will give you all of the above astrological aspects needed to help you discover your angel-astrological connections throughout the book. In fact, this natal chart gives even more astrological information than what is covered in the book! I’m hoping there will be another release that explains and connects the given charted information about Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto as well. I found this new idea of Archangels combined with astrology to be so interesting that I wanted to know more!

Anyone interested in self-discovery will appreciate this book. Those who are intrigued by a new way of looking at previous ideas will also enjoy the combination of these two concepts. Beautiful, gorgeous artwork abounds–it is also worth taking a look at for the images alone. No matter how approached, this book is full of new ideas, helpful self-awareness, and exploratory learning.

Angel Astrology 101 by Doreen Virtue and Yasmin Boland was given to me by Hay House in exchange for my review of it, as part of their Book Nook blogger program.
