Gabriel, Archangel, the Divine
herald. Christian tradition makes Gabriel the
Archangel trumpeter of the Last Judgment (1 Thes.
4.16). In Islam, Gabriel revealed the Qur'an to
Muhammad, becoming the Angel of truth. In art
and literature Gabriel is mainly treated as the
Angel of the Annunciation. In the Annunciation
he often carries a lily, properly the symbol of
the Virgin. He is often represented on churches
with trumpet raised and facing east, ready to
proclaim the second coming of Christ.
The Archangel Gabriel appears as a mature male
with long silver hair. Muscular in form and clothed
in white/silver robe which shines in the light.
Some say he also has a silver crescent ornament
on his brow. (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 Gabriel
and the Moon is The High Priestess (II) or Female
Pope and the Chariot (VII)
The High Priestess symbolises the New Moon and
the feminine creatibe forces, ISIS, the Mother
of Wisdom; the influences behind impending changes
and the ebb and flow of mundane and occult tides.
