Tarot of the Seals. Your ultimate instrument for practical and Ceremonial Magick.
Due to the total lack of involvement and support for the project, the work on this deck has been postponed indefinitely.

Thanks for your understanding.

The following text is a very handy synthesis of all the known Angels and Spirits assigned to the 36 cards of the Minor Arcana of the Tarot deck. You will not find all these information together elsewhere!
Each one of these cards represents one decan (approximately 10 grades/10 days) of each zodiac sign. Each zodiac sign is represented by 3 Tarot cards; each Tarot card is assigned to 2 Angels, respectively 2 Spirits. 12 Spirits for each zodiac sign, the total of 144 Spirits for all the 12 signs.
Each Angel rules over five grades (half decan) while the Spirits are ruling one by day and one by night over ten grades (a whole decan).
I organised, filtered the information to be clear and immediately useful.
The cards are presented in the Zodiac order, the first car is Two of Wands which represent the 1st decan of Arise, and the last card is the Ten of Cups which represents the 3rd and last decan of Pisces. So, it starts on 21th of March and ends on 20th of March which corresponds to the Hebrew calendar which is a lunisolar calendar, meaning that months are based on lunar months, but years are based on solar years. The Hebrew calendar is originated in the Babylonian calender.
According to the Hebrew calendar, the year corresponding to the 2015-2016 period is Year 5776.
Too many charlatans are telling you that conjuring (invoking) it is safe and harmless, but most of the cases of possession and haunting are the result of this kind of practices going sideways. Sometimes these Spirits do not have any physical manifestation or form, but suddenly your life just turns upside down. For instance, you wish for a better job, and out of the blue, you lose your job. These kind of mundane things.
In my opinion, there is no significant difference between the so-called Angels and the Spirits (sometimes called Demons). I believe that all these Spirits are equally dangerous while they all need a vessel to be able to manifest in our world (universe) which means that they need to possess a human body. Far as we know, this kind of possessions never worked out well for the possessed ones, not for Jesus, nor for Hitler.
If somebody believes in Demons, he/she will see Demons; if somebody believes in Angels, he/she will see Angels; if somebody believes in Aliens, he/she will see Aliens and finally, if somebody believes in nothing, he/she will see nothing.
I do not recommend the practice of invocation (conjuring) for anybody. There are other ways and practices to get where we want to be. Invocation is a jump into the unknown. Some believe it is an opportunity to discover and overcome our limitations.
In a much more philosophical view, these demons are nothing but the well-guided secrets of our mind and soul. Each one of us is full of doubts, frustrations, fears and anxieties, each one of us is full of desires, dreams and hopes. These are our hidden demons of our mind and our soul, and by using Goetia and performing those invocations, we release them and free our self in the process.
This is quite an idealistic approach, but many believe it. This is something generated by the Jungian type of analysis and interpretation of dreams. It is quite exciting, but definitively too sophisticated to the human mind of the 15th-17th century when most probably the original texts of the Lemegeton were generated. And do not explain, nor justify the whole ritual and all those safety measures these books are recommended.
However, even if it is true, it does not mean that this is a less dangerous path.
Although if you are determined to conjure anyway, stay away from the 9 Chief Kings and start with the Earls and those few Spirits mentioned that still may have a chance to return to Heaven. Generally, as a Spirit is in a higher position is more dangerous and less friendly, willing to help. The Spirits are divided into seven hierarchical categories which are inspired by the medieval royal and noble ranks.
The 9 Cheif Kings are Asmonday, Bael, Balan, Beleth, Belial, Painon, Purson, Vine and Zagan. There is another folk, a Duke called Berith, and the grimoire said about him: “Notwithstanding what is said above it is written he is a great liar, and not to be trusted.” – he definitively pissed off somebody pretty badly!
The presumed “good guys” are Vassago, Focalor, Barbatos, Purson, Forneus and Marchosias.
The hierarchy of the Spirits is as follow: The Chief Kings, Marquises, Dukes, Prelacies, Knights, Presidents and Earls.
And for those who may wonder, a legion was a unit of about 1,000 men (in our case Spirits). Imagine what 20 legions can do in your living room! Or, for that matter, in your head!
The Angels are also divided into nine hierarchical so-called Orders or Choirs:

– the First Order of Angels which the Christians call the Choir of the Seraphim.
– the Second Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of the Cherubim.
– the Third Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of Thrones.
– the Fourth Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of Dominations.
– the Fifth Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of Virtues.
– the Sixth Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of Powers.
– the Seventh Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of Principalities.
– the Eighth Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of Archangels.
– the Ninth Order of Angels, which the Christians calls the Choir of Angels.

The Angels of the Ninth Order are closest to the material world, and the human begins. They deliver the prayers to God and God’s answers and other messages to humans. Angels can access any and all other Angels at any time. They are the most caring and social to assist those who ask for help.
The Archangels are taken to mean “chief or leading angel”.
In the New Testament Principalities refers to one type of spiritual (metaphysical) being which are now quite hostile to God and human beings.
The Powers are Warrior Angels against evil defending the cosmos and humans. They are known as potentates. They fight against evil spirits who attempt to wreak chaos on human beings.
The Virtues are known as the Spirits of Motion and control the elements. They are sometimes referred to as “the shining ones.”
The Dominions are Angels of Leadership. They regulate the duties of the angels, making known the commands of God.
The Thrones are the Angels of pure Humility, Peace and Submission. They reside in the area of the cosmos where material form begins to take shape.
The Cherubim are the second highest in the nine hierarchies or choirs of angels. They were closely linked in God’s glory. They are manlike in appearance and double-winged and were guardians of God’s glory.
The Seraphim are the highest order or choir of angels. They are the angels who are attendants or guardians before God’s throne. Seraphim have six wings, two cover their faces, two cover their feet, and two are for flying.
Regarding the invocation of the Angels. Each Angel has allocated a period of 20 minutes considered optimal for the invocation. The 72 Angels cover exactly a period of 24 hours starting at midnight. The first Angel, called Vehuiah should be invoked from 12.00 AM to 12.20 AM while the last Angel, called Mumiah should be invoked from 11:40 PM to 12:00 AM.
About Angels.
According to the Zohar, it was Moses and not God, who parted the Red Sea allowing the Jews to narrowly escape Pharaoh and the Egyptian army. Moses had a special formula.
This formula is called the 72 Names of God. The 72 Names are not names, as human names are. The 72 Names are 72 three-letter sequences composed of Hebrew letters that have the extraordinary power to overcome the laws of both mother and human nature. These 72 sequences are encoded into the Bible story that tells of the parting of the Red Sea as described at Exodus 14:19-21. They are like conduits that transmit various blends of energy from the Light into our physical world. By using the power of the 72 Names and overcoming their reactive natures, Moses and the Jews were able to accomplish the miracle of the Red Sea.
The shapes, sounds, sequences, and vibrations of the 72 names radiate a wide range of energy forces. The Light they emit purifies our hearts. Their spiritual influence cleanses destructive impulses from our natures. Their sacred energy removes rash and intolerant emotions, fear, and anxiety from our beings. The Hebrew letters are instruments of power. In fact, the Hebrew word for “letter” actually means pulse or vibration, indicating a flow of energy. The Hebrew alphabet transcends religion, race, geography, and the very concept of language. The three letters signify three spiritual forces—a positive charge, a negative charge, and a ground wire—to create a circuit of energy.
The 72 names are derived from Exodus 14:19-21, which in the original Hebrew have 72 letters each.
The King James Version is as follow:
“19 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: 20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. 21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.” (Exodus 14:19-21)
The names are derived by writing the letters of the three verses one above the other, with no vowel points, spaces, or punctuation marks, the first from right to left, the second from left to right, and the third from right to left. The names are then read top down.
Additions -El and –Yah to the names create the names of the 72 Angels or as the kabbalist call them Geniis.
The combination of the principle of five with the principle of trinity now applies to the 72 Genii or Names or angels of God. These 72 Names are composed in the original Hebrew Kabbalah of three letters, to which either the power attribute -el or -iah is added, to create a five-lettered Name of God. Thinking in terms of Bardon’s system we could assume (speculatively), that El (God power) is a representation of the electric fluid and -iah (God mercy) represents the magnetic fluid, adding the two fundamental powers to the qualities of every single name. One further indication that this concept could be true is that the Bahir (see paragraph 8 of the Bahir and Kaplan’s commentary) states, that the letter “He” at the end of a word means the feminine quality of this thing, so we could say that the Yod of -yah reflects God (represented by a single point: Yod) in his feminine aspect (represented by He at the end of the word). Additionally, He represents the concept of holding. Both concepts parallel very well the concept of the magnetic fluid.
About Spirits (Demons).
It considered that King Solomon commanded the Spirits into the Vessel of Brass and sealed each one of them with their own seal.
The Lemegeton is a popular handbook of sorcery known from the 17th century.
The name Lemegeton is probably naively invented because of the compiler’s ignorance of Latin. He or she was no doubt familiar with the Clavicula Salomonis (Key of Solomon) and wanted to title this work the “Little (or Lesser) Key of Solomon;” this became “Lemegeton Clavicula Salomonis.”
The parts of the Lemegeton are as follows: Goetia, Theurgia Goetia, Ars Paulina, Ars Almadel and Ars Notoria.
The current text it is based on the text of The Lesser Key of Solomon (aka. Lemegeton or Clavicula Salomonis Regis) revisited by Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers, Aleister Crowley and more recently by Christopher S. Hyatt, David P. Wilson and Lon Milo DuQuette (of O.T.O.).
The books contain all the names, orders and offices of all the Spirits that ever he had any converse with, with the seals or Characters belonging to Each spirit, and the manner of calling them forth to [visible] appearance.
