- (Sarakiel, Saraqael, Saraqel, Suruquel, Suriel, Uriel, Zerachiel)Good and FALLEN ANGEL. In the Enochian writings, Sariel is Saraqel, not the same as Uriel. Sariel rules Aries and is one of the nine ANGELs who preside over the summer solstice. As a fallen angel, he teaches the course of the Moon.In Hebrew lore, Sariel is the son of LILITH and SAMAEL (in some accounts, Ashmodai or ASMODEUS), the “Sword of Samael.” Sariel’s face flames like fire. In the middle of the night of Yom Kippur, the prayers and acts of sages and elders can call him forth. Sariel appears reluctantly, flying through the air with 130 warriors, all of whom have flaming faces. Sariel gives enlightenment to all who call him forth. A scribe, Pifiron, carries all the secrets of the firmament that have been sealed by Sariel. These secrets are revealed to the elders.In the War of the Sons of Light and the Sons of Darkness (also known as the Triumph of God), one of the Qumran texts, Sariel is one of the four leaders of the forces of good. The human warriors are given exact instructions on who is to fight where, with weapons described carefully. There are four subdivisions (towers), and each is to have the name of their archangel inscribed on their shield. Sariel is on the third tower.
