Raphael and the healing energies of Spring

The four seasons are placed under the influence of four archangels: Raphael presides over spring, Uriel over summer, Michael over autumn and Gabriel over winter. When the spring equinox is near, all the spirits and forces of nature work under the leadership of Raphael to bring life back to every part of the universe. This renewal in nature is synonymous for humans with regeneration and therefore also with healing. On the Tree of Life, Raphael is the archangel of the sephirah Hod, the region where cabbalists placed the planet Mercury. Furthermore, the attribute of the god Mercury (Hermes in Greek mythology) is the caduceus, the symbol still used for medicine today. And the name Raphael means ‘God has healed’. For Christians, Easter is the great spring festival: the whole of nature celebrates Christ’s resurrection, which is also the resurrection of all creatures. This is why, when spring arrives, each person has some serious work to do: it is time to let go of everything inside that is old and obsolete. So, speak to the archangel Raphael, and ask him to make you receptive to the hidden virtues in trees, flowers and herbs, so that you can commune with this great current of energy coming from the heart of the universe and bringing new life.

Below is another Daily Mediation that is very closely related. Hope you like the photos which to me are very evocative of Spring- time joy. Raphael is associated with the color yellow in the Cabballa. SJJ

Over the course of the year the sun passes through four points called equinoxes and solstices, each one indicating the start of a new season. These four cardinal points are like nodes of cosmic forces and during these times new energies are deployed in the universe. But the regular change in season repeating itself every year does not mean that these forces are automatically or mechanically renewed. No, all changes are produced by the work of certain entities who are in charge of either plants, animals, human beings or other creatures. And each season is placed under the influence of an archangel: Raphael presides over Spring, Uriel over Summer, Michael over Autumn and Gabriel over Winter.

It is the Archangel Raphael who reigns over Spring. This archangel has command of a myriad of spirits who work under his supervision on the regeneration and growth of vegetation. So at the beginning of Spring you can establish a bond with the archangel Raphael. Ask him to make you receptive to the hidden virtues of trees, grasses and flowers, so that this new life penetrates you as well.
