I’ll be covering the goetic spirit Balam or Balaam here; He is the 51st one mentioned in the Goetia, as follows:
” The Fifty-First Spirit is Balam or Balaam. He is a Terrible, Great, and Powerful King. He appeareth with three Heads: the first is like that of a Bull; the second is like that of a Man; the third is like that of a Ram. He hath the Tail of a Serpent, and Flaming Eyes. He rideth upon a furious Bear, and carrieth a Goshawk upon his Fist. He speaketh with a hoarse Voice, giving True Answers of Things Past, Present, and to Come. He maketh men to go Invisible, and also to be Witty “.
Balam is Saturnian (Capricorn, 24°- Universal) in nature and excels in making one intellectual and can help the operator become a world-renown writer or similar; all things of a higher educative nature (architect, lawyer etc.) are up for grabs. So only the witty part applies regarding His goetic description.
In terms of appearance, He appears indeed as mentioned more or less, but that’s more for show- in reality, He appears as an angel dressed in white with black hair, very courteous and all & told me that He used to belong to the order of powers, and has another seal that He’ll give when being worked with.
The goetic spirit Samigina, or Gamigin is #4 in the grimoire and I’ll be covering Him in this article.
He appears as a medieval Jester, in green/ red/ black colors and for the rest transparent- His voice, despite me hearing Him, is ethereal and has no intonation.
Samigina is Jupiterian (16° in Sagittarius- uncertain) and the description in the Goetia, stating that He can aid in Necromancy + liberal science, is correct; His speciality is Necromancy, and can secondarily aid one in the latter skill too. Only drawback in working with Him is that He’s prone to changing his way of working or mind in work with the operator. See the video below for more information:
I’ll be covering the goetic spirit Glasya-Labolas today; below said description:
“The Twenty-fifth Spirit is Glasya-Labolas. He is a Mighty President and Earl, and showeth himself in the form of a Dog with Wings like a Gryphon. He teacheth all Arts and Sciences in an instant, and is an Author of Bloodshed and Manslaughter. He teacheth all things Past, and to Come. If desired he causeth the love both of Friends and of Foes. He can make a Man to go Invisible”.
In short, the only thing correct in here is the teaching of arts and related; the rest is dead wrong. He is Jupiterian (29°-artist) and is an allrounder, with strong Capricornian traits; skilled in making one talented & successful in practically anything that is an artform. Glasya is very keen on helping an operator and cares for his/ her well-being. See the video for more information:
I’ll be discussing Goetic spirit no. 58 today, named Amy or Avnas. His description is below:
” The Fifty-eighth Spirit is Amy, or Avnas. He is a Great President, and appeareth at first in the form of a Flaming Fire; but after a while he putteth on the Shape of a Man. His Office is to make one Wonderful Knowing in Astrology and all the Liberal Sciences. He giveth Good Familiars and can bewray Treasure that is kept by Spirits “.
Amy is Saturnian (6°- militant) and can aid one in all matters above, but is moderately good at best regarding treasure-finding; aside from that, He can aid in all matters put before Him in general as well as clairvoyance.
Appearance is as written; but with me, He appeared as a transparent being hovering in the air, sometimes ignited in flames (red/ blue colored) with feminine features (e.g. ponytail). I was planning on working with Amy three years ago for astrological purposes, but passed since there were better alternatives and it didn’t enjoy priority. An experience on Him can be read here, but I don’t know if it’s true; it amused me somewhat, seems not so credible.
I’ll be covering the goetic spirit Marbas today; He is known as #5 with description “He answereth truly of things Hidden or Secret. He causeth Diseases and cureth them. Again, he giveth great Wisdom and Knowledge in Mechanical Arts; and can change men
into other shapes”.
Marbas is Saturnian (Capricorn, 21°- experiment) and the only skill that comes remotely close to being a speciality is the ability to give knowledge on mechanics; but in actuality, it is not just that and He can aid in matters of matters where a new idea needs to be developed. Inventors, scientists and people wanting to make a breakthrough in industry & commerce by implementation of new ideas are examples. The other skills mentioned…He can do moderately well at best, but nothing that is worth mentioning.
I’ll be covering the goetic spirit Dantalion today; He’s # 71 in the Goetia and His description is as follows:
“The Seventy-first Spirit is Dantalion. He is a Duke Great and Mighty, appearing in the Form of a Man with many Countenances, all Men’s and Women’s Faces; and he hath a Book in his right hand. His Office is to teach all Arts and Sciences unto any; and to declare the Secret Counsels of any one; for he knoweth the Thoughts of all Men and Women, and can change them at his will. He can cause Love, and show the Similitude of any person, and show the same by a Vision, let them be in what part of the World they Will.”
Dantalion is Saturnian (17° in Aquarius- discernment) and regarding the description above, His strongest trait is Clairvoyance & willingness to help someone out, very determined- the rest, e.g. influencing others, love…not so much, as He’s moderately good in these fields. His appearance is as mentioned; He showed Himself to me as a man wearing a light blue robe and held a royal scepter at one time with choir-like, transparent faces around Him, most of them were women.
I’ll be covering the goetic spirit #34 called Furfur today; His description is as follows:
“…he will wittingly urge Love between Man and Woman. He can raise Lightnings
and Thunders, Blasts and Great Tempestuous Storms. And he giveth True Answers both of Things Secret and Divine…”
Furfur is Saturnian (1° in Aquarius- interpretation) and is someone that can help in most needs and wishes of an individual, NOT just the things outlined in the goetic description above. His appearance is that of a heart with wings, (which is subject to the operator’s mind) and true form is a generic angel wearing a light blue robe that partially covers His feet.
I shall be covering the archangel Uriel in this piece; He is a jack of all trades, similar to Michael in that aspect or regard. When reading about Uriel extensively, it comes to no surprise that he aligns with Mars (Aries, 3°- rashness), and this of course doesn’t mean that He’s martian, but that He’s linked to the element fire- Him being labeled a Cherub and the “Angel of Sun” only further supports that.
Regarding His skillset, He covers multiple subjects; money, art forms & science are notable ones. But his specialty is dominion over- and knowledge of the cosmos, per example Astrology.
He can make one excel like no other and give knowledge that is rare to say the least.
Appearance is that of a huge, tall Angel dressed in primarily yellow with other colors mixed. This reminds me of the LBRP, where He is called upon as Angel of the earth, which He also has dominion of, but in a different way than Sandalphon.
I’ll be covering the Archangel Metatron today; He is the ruler of the kabbalistic sphere Kether, representing cosmic wisdom and power through which God manifests into the rest of our world. Interesting to note that His face also appears on the first pentacle of the Sun, and known as the “face of God”; see the featured image.
From an occult point of view, I can see why Metatron has the highest position in the kabbalah; He corresponds to Scorpio (20°- unconventional) and is not Martian obviously, but it refers to His way of working, which is intense; Metatron is such a versatile one; can provide money, clairvoyance & understanding of the universe/ cosmos, prominence + the ability to be a good spokesman, thereby gaining support from parties, mastery of practically any artform (e.g. science, metaphysics) & information on past lives. All of the aforementioned are what He offers as a strong suit and as I mentioned before, He’s quite the multi-tasker.
Appearance is that of a transparent old man with beard, but in all honesty it can safely be stated that He has none, and He told me this too; I saw Him change forms intermittently and the above-mentioned form is a projection of my own subconscious as how to see Him.
I’ll be covering the olympic spirit Och from the magickal workbook called the Arbatel today; For those of you that don’t know the arbatel, follow the link on it’s name and/ or see a copy here.
As His description states therein, “Och governeth solar things; he giveth 600 years, with perfect health; he bestoweth great wisdom, giveth the most excellent Spirits, teacheth perfect Medicines: he converteth all things into most pure gold and precious stones: he giveth gold, and a purse springing with gold. He that is dignified with his Character, he maketh him to be worshipped as a Deity, by the Kings of the whole world“.
Well, He may be solar within the guidelines of the Arbatel, but not in general; for Och is a lunar spirit (Cancer, 26°- agriculture) and his attributes skillswise are correct. So health, wealth, medicine, herbs are His forté . He works in such an abstract and coercive manner as to cause strife in one’s life or destabilize it, but adversely sees to a one-track household. So the opposite for that. Keep that in mind. So He’ll throw certain aspects of life in disarray.
Funny thing is that I never liked the arbatel and remember people asking me whether I’ve worked with the spirits from it too; the whole reason for this piece is the fact that Och asked me to, appeared out of nowhere today as a medieval nobleman wearing yellow on top of a horse, and sometimes an ass. Lastly, Och says that He doesn’t mind that people use Solar correspondences, as long as they work with Him. He definitely doesn’t lack strength.
