The Angel Ariel the 3rd Archon of the Winds. The literal meaning is “lion of God.” In the Pistis Sophia, Jesus bids the apostles preach that they “be delivered from the rivers of smoke of Ariel.” “Ariel is the name of an angel, sometimes also of a demon, and of a city.
“Ariel” has been called an ancient name for the leontomorphic Gnostic Demiurge (the Creator God). Historically, the entity Ariel was often pictured in mysticism as a lion-headed deity with power over the Earth, giving a strong foundation for Ariel’s association with the Demiurge.
In Thomas Heywood, Hierarchy of the Blessed Angels (1635) Ariel is called both a prince who rules the waters and “Earth’s great Lord.” In mysticism, especially modern, Ariel is usually depicted as a governing angel with dominion over the Earth, creative forces, the North, elemental spirits, and beasts. Other entries in angelologies to Ariel are found in Jacques Collin de Plancy, Dictionnaire Infernal (1863) and Moïse Schwab Vocabulaire de l’Angélologie (1897).
In several occult writings, Ariel is mentioned with other elemental titles such as: “3rd Archon of the Winds,” “spirit of air,” “angel of the waters of the Earth” and “wielder of fire.”
“Ariel” is sometimes associated with the better known Judeo-Christian Archangel Uriel, as for example some sources claim that the Elizabethan court astrologer John Dee called “Ariel” a “conglomerate of Anael and Uriel,”. There are many variants of the Archangels of God found in cultures al over the world.
