I know that classification is a mostly linear activity that makes a lot more sense in the third dimension then it does in the fifth - but for some reason I keep coming back to it.  

One of things I keep coming back to, in particular, is the classification of various energetic beings. I know a variety of energetic beings are out there but am still a little fuzzy on labels. 

So recently I asked for more information. Their guidance I received? Do some ground level research and see what you can find.

This isn't the first time I've heard this. As a matter of fact, I get sent in this direction more often than I like to admit. That is because while Spirit is happy to teach, there is not a lot of spoon-feeding. In other words, sometimes we learn best on our own. I consider it a way of preparing for whatever comes next. And just like doing your homework in advance of a challenging lesson or class, it works.

So I did the research as directed and one of the most interesting things I learned is that (while archaic resources are really confusing) it is generally pretty well accepted that the ancients made a very clear connection between angels and star systems. 

To the ancient astrologers, in fact, the four key stars of the heavens were also known as the "Archangel Stars" and their associations were as follows (Eric Morse, The Living Stars, p.35.):

The Star Regulus, now at 29 degrees Leo - (the star of kings) known as the heart of the lion in the constellation of Leo, and most important of the four. Associated with the watcher of the North, Raphael. Considered to be very important in the birth chart. Regarded almost as a planet itself. (Also kind of surprisingly the fixed star in my chart.) 

The Star Fomalhaut currently at 3 degrees Pisces - also known as the fish's mouth in the constellation of Pisces or the stream of water being poured out by the Water Bearer. Associated with the Archangel Gabriel, the watcher of the South.

The Star Alderbaran at 9 degrees Gemini - the left eye of the bull in the constellation of Taurus. Often associated with the Archangel Michael, "Military Commander of the Heavenly Host." The watcher of the East. 

The Star Antares at Sagittarius 9 - the heart of the scorpion in the constellation of Scorpio. The Archangel Uriel, the watcher of the West.  

While I enjoyed learning about the older associations between angels and stars I do have to say that some don't personally resonate for me. I see Michael as more Leo and Raphael as more Scorpio, for example, and would probably put Gabriel in the East (and in Gemini) instead of the South.  But this isn't really the point.

The point, from my perspective, is that from very ancient times, the four archangels were associated with the watchers (astrologically as noted above and in the book of Enoch), as well as with the four faces of Ezekiel's chariot.

The faces in Ezekiel's vision were, as you recall, a lion (Regulus), man (Fomalhaut), Bull (Alderbaran) and Eagle - the first symbol for Scorpio (Antares).

To me, all of this is interesting because a good case has been made by various authors connecting the watchers, and Ezekiel's chariot to angelic, and / or extra-dimensional, beings.

And because on a personal level I have experienced some interesting synchronicities on or around these topics.

Does this mean that the beings of light we call angels are the same beings of light that some think of as intergalact (or interdimensional) guides?

I can't explicitly say.  Classifying energetic beings is a little like herding cats. Just when you think you might be progressing someone veers off in a completely different direction. But my own, subjective yet direct, spiritual experience tells me that the association between higher energetic beings and angels is valid.

And now, based on this most recent bit of research, it seems to me that the ancients (who were, I have been told, much closer to all of this than we are) probably agreed.

In the end a being of light, is a being of light.

Whether we identify those beings as Seraphim or Cherubim or Pleiadian or ascended human souls, deep inside we all possess a remarkably homogeneous spark of the same shimmery and very holy light.

And no matter how long we have been on the road or how far we have come, we are all traveling in what, I very much want to believe, is essential the same ever evolving direction.

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday Sunday filled with the blessings of whatever angel, ascended master, deity or star person you call friend.
