Saint Michael Archangel

God had made Heaven and the Earth and all the Angels and all the extra important Angels, called Archangels. (Like an important Bishop is called an Archbishop.) The Archangels were God's special subjects.  One Archangel was called Michael (along with St. Gabriel and St. Raphael). Michael was "the Angel of the Lord", who was sent to Moses, Jacob and Abraham and others throughout history. Another Archangel was Lucifer, who was so beautiful that the other Angels called him the Son of the Morning.

All were content in Heaven. Then one day Lucifer, Son of the Morning, said to himself: "Why should God be the most important person in Heaven? Why, shouldn't I be? I am beautiful and I am powerful. In fact, I am just as important as God, and I shall fight Him and have Heaven for myself!"

So, Lucifer went around Heaven, and he collected a lot of other Angels who also didn't want to be less important than God, until he had a Great Army. Then they marched up to the Throne of God and and challenged Him to Heaven.  God called Michael the Archangel, and made him gather together a Mighty Army of Angels on God's side.

There was a Great Battle in Heaven--Michael and his Angels fighting with Lucifer; and, Lucifer fought, and his Angels fought; but, they did NOT win. And Michael drove Lucifer out of Heaven, and he fell down to hell; and, all his bad angels were driven down after him, and as the last one disappeared from sight forever and the Gate of Heaven shut tightly, a great Shout went up for Michael's Army.

So, now you know why we sometimes say in our prayers, "Holy St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the Day of Battle," because he is so good at battles and a great warrior.

Prayer to St Michael For Protection Against Evil and Danger
Dear St. Michael, the Archangel, protect us, both body and soul from the Evil One, his followers and anyone who would approach us with malicious intent.
Protect us, our bodies, and our cars, as we travel about in our daily activities.
Protect us, our bodies, our home, our property and possessions during times of storm, from all dangers of lightning, high winds, hail and flood waters. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Michael (for a specific need)
St. Michael, intercede for me with God in all my necessities, especially (name your specific need). Obtain for me a favorable outcome in the matter I recommend to you. Mighty prince of the heavenly host, and victor over rebellious spirits, remember me for I am weak and sinful and so prone to pride and ambition. Be for me, I pray, my powerful aid in temptation and difficulty, and above all do not forsake me in my last struggle with the powers of evil. Amen.

The Symbols of Santa Muerte

Some images of the Santa Muerte may be found with different symbols, holding different items in her hands or including different objects at her feet.  A common image is of Santa Muerte carrying a scythe and a world globe.  The following are the most common symbols.

The Scythe…
The scythe or sickle has several meanings; first it is symbolic of endings.  This doesn’t necessarily meaning the ending of a lifespan, although in certain conditions it is a symbol of death itself.  It can also mean the ending of a time period, a routine, a dispute, an adventure, a relationship, etc...  Endings come in many forms.  Santa Muerte uses her scythe to cut away a persons link to something.  It is also symbolic of death since its believed by her followers that when a persons time is up she is the one who comes to escort the soul into the next existence.  In this instance her scythe cuts the remaining ties to our worldly life.  The scythe is also a symbol of harvest, prosperity, and hope.  It can be said that the scythe she holds is a symbol of harvesting our dreams and desires.  A sign of a persons request made to her will flourish, grow, and manifest.  It cuts away obstacles that hold a person from making progress and clears a path for guidance.  In addition, the scythe can symbolize power and strength.  This can be in many forms.  It can symbolize the power and strength that Santa Muerte herself carries over all humans and over her realm of the dead.  It can also indicate power and strength in a person’s spellwork with Santa Muerte, or power and strength over enemies. 

The World Globe…
The world globe represents Santa Muerte’s power over the entire world.  She is not held back or limited to whom she can rule.  She will eventually claim everyone living on earth.  Santa Muerte is not limited to location or held back by time or space.  She can claim judgment at any given moment.  There are no boundaries.  It’s believed that after God, death (Santa Muerte) is the most powerful figure in the world, since without death there is no life, there is no existence.  The globe is an indication that Santa Muerte rules over all race, religion, culture, and belief.....she’s just known by other names....but most, if not all, religions have a ruler over death.  Here, we call her Santa Muerte. 

The Owl…
The owl is symbolic of darkness, nighttime, and keen vision.  Santa Muerte’s owl companion indicates powerful guidance for those who ask.  Many people take their problems and questions to Santa Muerte because they seek the knowledge and a answer to their blindness.  Blindness because they “see” no solution.  The owl’s sharp vision offers the light a person needs to overcome blindness.  It guides a person to solution and success.  The owl is also connected to great wisdom and intelligence, hence the term “that wise old owl”.  Santa Muerte’s owl companion is her messenger.  Oftentimes a person who works with Santa Muerte will have visions of an owl through dreams.  These dreams are commonly discovered to contain important messages Santa Muerte wishes to share with one of her followers.  Owls have also been seen during waking hours as well or the hoot of an owl, although it is not visible, can be heard. 

The Hourglass…
The hourglass, or sandglass, symbolizes the hands of time.  Each grain of sand is a moment of time itself.  Each grain that her hourglass contains is indication of a person’s lifespan.  When the hourglass is empty, life on earth is over.  At the same time death is a continuation of life.  This continuation can be in another realm or again here on earth.  Some people believe that when a person gets a calling from Santa Muerte each gain of sand in their hourglass are actually tiny microscopic skull and pieces of bone.  The hourglass also symbolizes patience.  Ask and wait.  People who ritually work with Santa Muerte first must give before receiving her gifts.  Giving comes in the form of the altar, candles, prayer, and offerings.  Once these are made the person waits for her to answer.  Patience pays off.  Santa Muerte’s hourglass is also connected to time travel.  Past, present, and future.  She can teach divination to those who she feels are deserving of the knowledge.  She can answer questions presented to her concerning a person’s life or the history of a place.  Any oracle can be dedicated to her in order to receive her guidance in how to most beneficially use it.  

The Lamp…
The lamp represents a reflection of her...her presence, her help, her existence, her guidance.  With her lamp she lights the path of those who follow her and those who work with her.  It lights up a person’s direction and/or mental capacity, giving the person a more expanded train of thought.  New ideas, new insights, and deeper levels of clarity. 

The Cloak or Robe…
The cloak. Most commonly Santa Muerte wears a long hooded cloak which extends to her feet, much like the one the Virgin of Guadalupe wears.  It drapes over her boney frame covering almost all of her with the exception of her face, hands, feet, and sometimes the lower half of her legs.  Her cloak is symbolic of the protection she extends to her devotees.  She opens her cloak wide and covers the person with it to keep them safe from whatever it is they need protection from.  A person can have just one single white statue of Santa Muerte and change the color of her cloak according to the work being done.  The basic colors for cloaks are red, white, and black but other colors can be made as well.  There are several places that sell cloaks or robes already made for Santa Muerte but these are usually very expensive.  If you are handy with a sewing machine they can be made very inexpensively at home.  Some women make her a wedding gown which is draped over the statue when ritually working with her for marriage and commitment purposes.  Other colors that may serve well are blue, purple, gold, and brown.  Easily dress her in different robes.  This keeps from having to purchase different color statues for related spellwork.

The History of Santa Muerte

La Flaca (The Skinny One), Nina Santa (Holy Girl), La Calaca (The Skeleton) are just some of the names given to the skeleton saint La Santisima Muerte (The Most Holy Death).

Although she is not recognized by the Catholic Church, her followers consider her a saint. Some believe that she is the Virgin Mary (specifically Our Lady of Guadalupe) representing the way she would look in death. Others believe her to be a representation of the Aztec ruler of death.

It’s believed that Santa Muerte is rooted as far back as to the Aztecs, particularly to the goddess Mictlancihuatl (the Aztec goddess of death) and the wife of Mictlantecuhtli (the Aztec god of death) who together ruled over the underworld and the world of the dead. 

Interestingly, the spider, the owl and the bat are associated with Mictlantecuhtli (the Aztec god of death) as they are with Santa Muerte.  Because she is known as the Lady of the Dead, and for other similarities, she and Santa Muerte are considered one in the same. 

Mictlantecuhtli has been described as a bloody skeleton figure.  He wore necklaces made of human bones and his clothing oftentimes was adorned with bones, teeth and eyeballs.  Mictlancihuatl was viewed in much the same way.  In the ancient Aztec culture skeletons and bones were viewed differently than they are today.  The Aztecs saw them as symbols of fertility, health, and abundance. 

Death was an important part of life to the Aztecs, an extension into another world.  Life went on even after death.  The dead were never forgotten.  Instead they were honored and invoked.  They held special rituals in honor of the deceased which is where, in my opinion, the feast of Day of The Dead started.  They believed that forty days after a persons death the spirit would return.

The beauty of working with Santa Muerte is that she is a complete and total magical system in herself.  This means that she can be called upon for every single need a person may have.  Unlike the Saints and other deities who can only be called upon for issues that are within their particular workings or patronage, Santa Muerte has no limits or restrictions.

Santa Muerte does not separate good and evil.  There is no distinction between the two in her eyes.  Petitions are just petitions, cries for help in time of need.  She will respond to requests of any nature and will never cast judgment upon a person for what they ask or who they are.  Santa Muerte will grant many requests that are shunned by other Saints.
Whether Santa Muerte began as the symbol of the Aztec goddess of death or the representation of Our Lady of Guadalupe will never be resolved.  Today, she represents a strong influence for many followers of the Catholic Church and beyond.  She can be used with or without other spirits and Saints by anyone willing to follow her.  Santa Muerte accepts everyone alike. There are no rules.
