The Wicca Book of Days for March 16th

Gabriel, the Go-Between

As a Piscean day, March 16’s astrological element is Water, which in esoteric belief, is in turn associated with Gabriel. Gabriel’s correspondences also include Winter and the West, the direction in which you should turn when invoking this Archangel. In Christianity, Gabriel is best known as the messenger from God who announced her impending motherhood to the Virgin Mary, but he is specifically mentioned by name in the old Testament Book of Daniel as helping Daniel to interpret his visions. And in the apocryphal Book of Enoch, Gabriel is “one of the holy angels who is (watches) over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim.

Seeking Guidance

If you are puzzling over an enigmatic dream or vision, try respectfully requesting from Gabriel the same help that he gave Daniel. You may be blessed to feel the presence of this angelic being with you, ready “to give thee skill and understanding.” (Daniel 9:22)

*Remember there are various Pagan Traditions that use Saints and Archangels in their Religious Practices.
