Archangel Raguel is said to emerge wearing flowing white robes and holding a big book. The rodent, squirrel, iguana, possum, and raccoon are all animal manifestations of this Archangel that exist out of sight of humans.
Raguel offers people the resources they need to deal with personal issues like lying, neglect, injustice, gossip, slander, and harassment. He is worried with inequality on a larger scale, so he encourages people to donate to causes like violence, poverty, and harassment.
What’s Archangel Raguel story?
Raguel is known for being the archangel of right, honesty, unity, revenge, and salvation. The archangel of speech is another name for him. Raguel is one of the seven angels appointed to keep watch in the Book of Enoch. His number is 6, and his mission is to avenge those who have broken God’s laws in the world.
Raguel’s roles are the same in both Jewish and Christian cultures. Raguel’s job, like that of a sheriff, has always been to hold fallen angels and demons in check, passing judgement on anyone who crosses the line. He’s been said to cast fallen angels into Hell and exorcise evil spirits.
Potential references to a similar figure from other cultures include “Rag” (some texts suggest Ragumu) in Babylonian culture and “Rig” in Sumerian culture, both of which mean “speech” or “talk.” As a result, in those societies, these similar characters reflected balance as well.
What are Archangel Raguel’s powers?
If the other angels are unable to agree on a fair course of action, Raguel is said to administer judgment and justice. Raguel is also the angel to pray to whenever you feel that no one else is listening to you or that you’re being handled unfairly at work or at home. Since Raguel is so concerned with justice, he also provides encouragement to those who are fighting injustice.
Raguel is the chief of the principalities, a collective of angels. The principalities are known for assisting people in establishing order in their lives, such as encouraging them to engage in spiritual disciplines on a daily basis in order to cultivate behaviors that will allow them to grow closer to God. Saying a prayer, meditating, reading holy books, attending religious services, spending time with nature, and helping those in need are only a few of these disciplines.
All relationships, like friendships, romance, family, and company, benefit from Archangel Raguel’s presence. He’ll often immediately heal the relationship, and some other times he’ll give you insightful advice. This advice can manifest as recurring gut feelings, emotions, dreams, or signals that lead you to take healthy relationship steps.

How to know if it is a trickster spirit rather than Archangel Raguel?
When you first start on your spiritual journey, you may not know yet how to protect yourself, or your Spirit Guides have yet to adapt to protecting you on your new journey. This is the time when you are most vulnerable to trickster spirits, even though it happens all the time, to even more advanced spiritual practitioners.
These are the definite signs you are dealing with a trickster spirit:
- Feeling a presence when you are in a vulnerable position (grieving someone, fearing abandonment, fighting with your loved ones, anger issues, doubting everything, etc.). A trickster spirit will feed on these emotions, and also fuel them even more.
Trickster spirits are those spirits who appear to be as someone else, trying to get something from you, while making you think you are talking to the Spirit you want to talk. In most cases, trickster spirits are not dangerous, they won’t affect your life, but they will play games with your mind. If you are in a vulnerable position,
- You will be asked to offer something to them, straight away. The first thing a trickster spirit will ask of you, is for you to offer something to them. They will usually start with asking for small things like a fruit, or a flower, or a cup of milk, or go for big ones like a dog, a goat, and other animals. They will push you to fulfill their desire, because they will in turn, give you the information you have been seeking. If you are in a vulnerable position, you are desperate for that answer, and they can feel that.
- Trust your intuition. If you feel the answers from your spirit are tricky, or they don’t make sense, it’s because a trickster spirit doesn’t really know the truth, so they are trying to confuse you with half-answers, or nonsense answers.
A Spirit that holds power, such is Archangel Raguel, will answer straight away. If they can’t provide an answer, they will give you the reason for it. You won’t have to try, and decipher what they may be saying, and you won’t get answers that don’t make sense, or that do not relate to the question at all.
How can you work with him?
As with any Archangel, if you want to work with them on the long term, you should build an altar for them. You can build Archangel Raguel’s altar on a Tuesday, or Friday, you should go with your intuition. You should approach your spiritual work with Archangel Raguel following these steps:
- Place the Altar. You have to find a high table, that won’t be disturbed, and cover it with a white cloth. Then, you have to put a statue of Archangel Raguel, or a photo of him. If you can’t afford a quality statue, or photo, it is just fine if you print a photo of him from the internet. You only have to make sure that the Spirit in the picture is Archangel Raguel.
- Dedicate a candle to her. You may need to get a yellow or gold candle to light for him, and ideally light it every day. You should set a cup of water on the altar, which you change, and refill every other week. You may also want to put a cross on your altar. This is the basic altar, but if you want, you may share your daily food with your Archangel, or leave flowers on his altar.
- Spiritual Work on your Altar. All the spiritual work that you want to invoke the Archangel Raguel’s powers, you should do in front of, or on, the altar. You may write a petition, or light a candle, and pray on what you want to manifest. Your Archangel will hear your wishes, and if it is on your best interest, he will grant it.

Prayer for Archangel Raguel
You can pray at the church, or you can light a candle and say your prayer to Archangel Raguel, asking of him what you need in your life. You don’t necessarily need an altar for him, even though it is advised to build an altar for the Archangel if you wish to work with him every now and then.
The prayer for Archangel Raguel:
If you want to pray on a wish of yours, you need to light a candle for Archangel Raguel, and this is the candle that will represent him, and the light that will guide him to come to you. If you pray at a church, you don’t need a candle for him. Other than the candle that represents Raguel, you will need to light another candle that represents your prayer, or desire.
When you are in need for healing, either for yourself, or somebody else, you can pray to Archangel Raguel to allow you to heal yourself or others, or for him, to use his healing powers for you. You may speak a prayer :
You may light a blue candle, or a green one, because these colors stand for healing, cleansing, and grounding. You want to nourish yourself, and bring life back to something that was touched by a disease. If you don’t have these colors, a white candle is just fine.
If you are in need for help regarding your financial situation, or to open your path to the career that you want to follow, you can pray to Archangel Raguel, using the following prayer:

What to be cautious about?
You may think that Archangels are Angels of light, and they intent to help you become your best self, and manifest your best dreams. This is true. However, what you may fail to realize, is that Archangels do not take into account what you may lose along the way.
Therefore, you have to be cautious what you wish for. If you want more money, you should always make it clear that you don’t want anybody to get hurt, or you may name the exact sources that you want your money to come from (business, job promotion, etc.).
On another note, you should always be careful not to make promises that you can’t keep, or that you don’t intend to keep. These are the promises that you don’t fulfill, after your desire has been granted, and it is as simple as bringing them flowers, or offering food everyday for a week. These may also be promises like you will stop smoking, or drinking, if they grant you the promise. If you fail to uphold any promise that you make them, at the best, the Archangel won’t work with you anymore, and at the worst, they will take whatever they granted you, and more.
