In my experience with angels, they all have masculine and feminine forms, but their true forms are transcendental and inherently genderless. Mannerisms may change when they switch between genders – for example, fem!Gabriel is motherly and nurturing and like a valkyrie on the battlefield, while male!Gabriel is charming, witty, and a practical jokester that loves puns. They may favor one gender over the other, like Michael, or shift easily between them, like Uriel or Gabriel. An angel like Ariel that may appear as female to the majority of spirit workers may actually appear male to you. I think it all depends on the lessons you need to learn from them.
Last night I dreamt of Michael’s female aspect, who is very regal and reminds me of Queen Elizabeth. She has long flowing auburn hair that is usually in a chignon or braid and silvery eyes, usually dressed in white robes or dresses. In this aspect she is very motherly with me and contemplative, asking me philosophical questions and attending to work in the Heavenly body with utmost diligence. She is quieter and less forceful than her male aspect, which I mainly interact with, but no less fearsome. She has an especial love for children and flowers.
Samael’s female aspect is like if Dita Von Teese and Ishtar had a baby. Femme fatale, dominatrix, with a curvaceous figure, rather voluptuous assets, a tan Kim Kardashian would die for, and insatiable appetite for all things. She is all fire, impulsive, sexual, energetic, crazy in her passion, literally crazy, does tons of drugs and alcohol, and an agent of destruction. Long wavy black hair, she often goes naked or in a bustier and skirt and can usually be found vomiting in a bathroom.
Ariel’s male aspect, whereas he is usually female with most spirit workers, is who I dub Blonde Wonderboy. Snarky, charming, flirty, obsessed with bonfires and the ocean and surfing, a total beach bum and rascal to boot. He is fun as fun can be and loves going on adventures in the otherworlds and is very boyish in his charms and mannerisms. An angel of the elements, he is all about nature, and probably an Eagle Scout to boot. Many times he is part-lion and overlaps with Samael as the Demiurge inspired by the god Nergal. They have a joint aspect I call Ariael that I interacted with a lot as a child, but now remain quite separate.
Unlike most occultists, I primarily see Uriel as a girl. Umber skin, hazel eyes, beautiful blondish brown dreadlocks and a toned body like Rihanna. She looks Melanesian and favors cyan or seafoam robes, summer dresses, or swimsuits. Her heaven looks like a tropical paradise and she wouldn’t be caught dead without her trusty spear. She is very motherly and older sisterly and loves taking people under her wing. An earthy angel, she is extremely grounded and radiates peace. Don’t be surprised if she is delighted to see you and gives you a peck on the cheek! Her male aspect works more with children and appeared to me around Christmastime in festive robes, delivering presents. He literally looked like Denzel Washington and I went, oh god, have mercy, he’s hot.
Finally good old Gabriel. They are about as gender fluid as you can get, switching easily between male and female aspects. It’s about 50/50 with people perceiving them as male or female, and I tend to like her female side better. The male one jokes too much and likes novelty bars ;).
Obviously other angels – all of them – have male and female aspects, as angels are inherently genderless. My guess is they appear in forms we are most comfortable with. Raphael and Azrael I’ve never seen as gals, and I can only IMAGINE what Metatron would be like as a woman. That would make my year. Michael as a woman is funny enough. Better start calling her Michelle…
