The research files vol. XCVI: Barbatos

Standard

I’ll be covering the goetic spirit Barbatos in this installment; below His description:

The Eighth Spirit is Barbatos. He is a Great Duke, and appeareth when the Sun is in
Sagittary, with four noble Kings and their companies of great troops. He giveth understanding of the singing of Birds, and of the Voices of other creatures,
such as the barking of Dogs. He breaketh the Hidden treasures open that have been laid by the Enchantments of Magicians. He is of the order of Virtues, of which some part he retaineth still; and he knoweth all things Past, and to Come, and conciliateth Friends and
those that be in Power“.

Barbatos is a lunar spirit (Cancer, 5°- acquisition) and specializes in leading others to treasures; the other skills attributed to Him are not what He excels at, although He does offer some help in those departments as a lunar spirit. This is unsurprising, since most lunars have related skills, examples being Agares & Caim. Like Caim, Barbatos will not give away riches easily & restrict himself, unless you have given Him enough to prove that you’re worthy of millions per example. The rest is seemingly true, although I didn’t confirm this; this is what He told me (being of Virtues and all..).

Appearance is that of a woodsman or archer in green/ blue apparel with blond hair (see featured image). His seal below.
