Archangel Jophiel – Angel of Beauty and Wisdom
Who is Archangel Jophiel?
The name Jophiel is of Hebrew origin which means “God’s beauty”.
Like many other Angels and Archangels, Archangel Jophiel too is referred to and fondly called upon by different names. Depending on the demographic influence, the glorious angel is also known by the names: Iofiel, Iophiel, Zaphiel, and/ or Zophiel.
There is a reference to Archangel Jophiel in the Zohar, the sacred text of the spiritual branch of Judaism called Kabbalah, in which she is referred to as the chief who directs 53 legions of angels in heaven. The book also details her to be one of the two archangels (the other is Zadkiel), who plays a significant role in assisting Archangel Michael to overcome evil in the spiritual realm.
Jewish texts believe it was Archangel Jophiel who was given the task to guard the tree of knowledge and cast Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden after they sinned. They also believe that the Archangel oversees the Torah’s readings on Sabbath days and continues to perform her duties of guarding the Tree of Life with a flaming sword.
Although there is no direct mention of Archangel Jophiel to be one of the chief group of Archangels in the Book of Enoch, she finds a special mention in the Pseudo-Dionysius’s De Coelestia Hierarchia, a book from the 5th century that influenced several other spiritual books about angels.
In addition to this, Jophiel appears in several other esoteric texts, including the “Veritable Clavicles of Solomon and the “Calendarium Naturale Magicum Perpetuum,” 17th-century works that detail the world of magic and mystic from the beginning of time.
Jophiel is also mentioned in the Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses, ANother mystical work from the 18th century that is believed to be a part of the lost books of the Bible.

Archangel Jophiel is also often associated with the likes of Feng Shui, a Chinese philosophical system that works at harmonizing everything with the surroundings. Calling upon Jophiel can help you balance the right energies so as to create a beautiful home environment while clearing out any unnecessary clutter.
Like all other Archangels, Archangel Jophiel is mostly genderless or androgynous. Yet, to many believers, the angel radiates specific gender-based energy.
While some people would like to see Archangel Jophiel as a light being of masculine energy, a large group of angel believers perceives the angel’s energy to be distinctively feminine. Now because a majority of people like to associate the divine angel with feminine energy, I too shall refer to the glorious angel with feminine pronouns.
