Archangel Uriel and Aurora serve on the purple and gold ray, the sixth ray, which represents the Godly attributes of peace, ministration and service. They bring us the selfless flame of love used in devotional worship and service to all life. Some believe Aurora is the administrator of grace, which in theological terminology means the unmerited love and favor of God toward man. Or, divine influence acting in man to make him pure and morally strong.
The purple and gold ray rules the solar plexus chakra and beams down to the earth most strongly on Thursdays. Uriel and Aurora have their retreat over the Tatra Mountains, south of Cracow, Poland, in the etheric world.
Uriel is referred to in literature as the "fire of God," "flame of the sun," "angel of the presence," and the "archangel of salvation," according to Davidson. In Hebrew Uriel means "God's light" or "light of God."
As St. Uriel in Catholic teachings, he is shown with an open hand holding a flame. The open hand signifies an openness to receive God's light. The fire inside his palm is a reminder of the intensity of reception of this light. A book or scroll symbolizes this angel's talents for interpretation.
The governing angels of this purple and gold ray bring to mankind the light of God's peace and devotion to good by intensifying our desire for worship. With the grace of his feminine complement, Uriel brings to man the tools to reach God. Devotional service and worship are important aspects of any pilgrim or pilgrimage. Without peace, the mind cannot receive God's swirling energy. Grace is a special blessing of mercy, compassion, love or other virtue given to a person by God. With Uriel's fiery devotion, comes Aurora's power to make man morally strong.
This ray is a combination of purple and gold. Likewise, the action of this ray is two-fold. The purple stands for the Holy Spirit in the Holy Trinity. It is the power of transformation and forgiveness. The purple creates the desire for spiritual service in mankind. The gold represents the enlightened fire of wisdom within our hearts, souls and minds, assisting each part of our lives to find reunion with our source, and with the "golden rule," the laws of life. In the Holy Trinity, Christ is the golden flame. The combination of the two allow us to transform or create our worlds at will.
In religious lore, Uriel is referred to as the "spirit who stood at the gate of the lost Eden with the fiery sword," according to Abbot Anscar Vonier in, The Teaching of the Catholic Church.
Ronner, in Know Your Angels, says this archangel is folklore's angel of prophecy and interpretation. He is the guardian of writers and teachers.
In the Old Testament First and Second Books of Esdras, Uriel reveals the meaning of the Hebrew prophet Ezra's seven visions, that a Messiah has been sent to conquer all evil. From this role in the Bible, Uriel earns his wings as an angel of interpretation.
In John Milton's, Paradise Lost, Uriel is called the "Regent of the Sun" and takes part in the fall of man. According to Milton's tale, Satan is able to trick Uriel into giving him directions down to earth. Satan is seeking revenge for losing the battle after being kicked out of heaven. So he wants to harm God's newest creation, Adam and Eve. He hides his identity from Uriel, ruler of the Sun, by dressing up as a cherub. Uriel gives him directions to the Garden of Eden. But later he finds out he was tricked and slides down to the Garden on a sunbeam. Uriel tells Gabriel and the other angels to protect the first humans. His message apparently came too late to prevent the fall.
The ray governed by Uriel and Aurora teaches us lessons for mastering the physical plane. They teach us to seek peace and devote ourselves to knowing and worshipping God.
Seek help from Archangel Uriel and Aurora when you need renewed dedication to achieve goals. Also look to the archangels of the purple and gold ray if you want to perform selfless services to others. Through the archangels of peace, ministration and service, mankind can work to be "thy brother's keeper," which is what Jesus taught us to strive toward in order to become one with God.
