Gabriel's Zodiac

The tattoo of my Zodiac, Cancer with the Archangel Gabriel's Sigil.

The Sigil of Gabriel ruler of the 1st Heaven and the Moon. His zodiac sign - Cancer.

Gabriel has always had a close association with maternity. An ancient legend says that she announced the birth of Samson. She appeared
to Zacharias to tell him that he and his wife Elizabeth should prepare for the birth of a son, John the Baptist (Luke 1:5-25). In the Jewish
tradition it is believed that Gabriel instructs the baby while it is in the womb.

Gabriel is associated with the Moon, water, emotions and the feminine side of Nature. His name means 'God is my strength' and he's said to rule the spirit of mankind. Gabriel is said to be the angel that connects the astral and heavenly worlds.

The angelic script circling the center is Gabriel's name. At the center is his Sigil. The tribal embodiment is the symbol of The Cancer (crab) while the Claws are in the shape of Crescent Moons.

Sorry, that if you were looking for the actual traditional sigil for Gabriel. The sigil in the middle of your tat was actually created by the author Silver RavenWolf in the book Angels: Companions in Magick. The author gives guidelines on how to create your own sigils, so "magick" can work better for you.

Aww, thanks hun! I <3 it too, it's just so awesome that Gabriel rules over my zodiac so to speak! :D The tat artist did a fabulous job!

Y'know, I didn't even know that he was related to my sign. I started doing research on the Archangel Gabriel and stumbled across that info entirely by accident. I had been searching for something to represent my zodiac for a long time and this came along and slapped me in the face!

That's really awesome--I love the script on the inside. It looks like something you'd see on "Supernatural"--So, cool.
