Samael is a name you may not recognize and if it is then you are one that knows your angels well. This archangel is said to be the warrior of God and is one of the angels of creation as well as the Apocalypse.
Like the other Archangels Samael can be added into your rituals and spells to add a little boost to them. You can ask him for help if you have certain intentions. There are crystals, herbs, flowers and animals that are associated with him. Even other deities. Yes, that's right. Deities. In this hub you will come aware of all of the connections with Samael. The Gods/Goddesses, flowers and herbs and even trees. You will be surprised what there is to know about this angel. Especially if you didn't even know there was an Archangel Samael.
Like many other angels Samael has gone by other names. He is associated with the names of Set and Horus so you could call him by either or. Some have called him Azazel, Sammael, or Samil. His Celestial title is Warrior Of God. Either one of these names are names that you can choose to use instead of Samael if you are not comfortable or do not connect as much with that name than you do with another.
Certain times can always be better to work with one angel. This is because of their powers being at their up most high, their energies will be able to aid you more at specific times. Archangel Samael's month is unknown, however if you are aware of this information please feel free to share. The best day to work with this angel is Tuesday.
Just like all the other angels the hours of working with him are the same. The 1st and 8th hours of the day and the 3rd and 10th hours of the night is when he will be of the most help to you.
Samael has no days that you need to avoid working with him on, therefore you can ask for his help any day. These times here are just of suggested use when he can be of most help to you. It will not hurt you to ask for his help at any time. If you feel the need to ask for him then by all means do so.
Samael is associated with the planet of Mars and is said to be of the both the elements of fire and water. Because of this I believe it is acceptable to use him in both directions of south and west though there is no real assigned direction for this angel.
He is said to be connected to the astrological signs of Aries and Scorpio.
There are six deities that are connected with this angel. Some are well known, others not so much. Freya is the Norse Goddess of Love, Beauty and Destiny and she is said to be associated with him. Gwydion is a Welsh God that was the master of illusion and fantasy, this God is too connected with Samael. The Hindu Goddess Kali is also connected with him, she's considered the Goddess of time and change. The Norse God Odin is yet another that is said to be associated to with this angel. The God Vulcan also known as Mulciber in Ancient Roman mythology is the god of beneficial and hindering fire.
Metals of bronze, iron and brass are associated with Samael and can be incorporated in rituals or spells when you plan on asking for his help.
Trees that are connected this this particular archangel include Acacia, Horse Chestnut, Hawthorn, Holly, Mistletoe, Monkey Puzzle, and Rowan.
There are several herbs/flowers that are said to be a part of Samael and can be used in spells as well as rituals when you plan on working with him. These include Belladonna, Cardamom, Daisy, Devil's Claw Root, Nettle, Poppy, Plantain, Red Rose, Rue, Thistle, Thyme, Wormwood, Wild Rose and last but not least Woodbine.
The symbol for him is a five pointed star. This symbol may be placed on your alter if you are planning on including this angel in your workings. There are also six different crystals that are said to be associated with him. They are the bloodstone, diamond, garnet, jasper, ruby and topaz.
The tarot card for him is The Tower.
Animals for Samael include the scorpion and all other stinging insects except bees. Rams, sheep, horses, bears, and wolves are all said to be connected with him.
The best color to use when working with Samael is Red and when writing it'd be with red ink with white paper.
Now let's conclude our associations with what kind of spells he may help you with. Samael can help with anything to do with physical courage and overcoming enemies. Anything to do with war which includes prevention, success and cause can include him. He is best used with subjects with masculinity. Which can include conflict, physical endurance and strength, lust, hunting, sports and any kind of competition. He may also be used in rituals to deal with surgical procedures or political ventures.
Samael may or may not be an angel that you will find to be useful. I think anybody can include him in there life from time to time. Everybody can use a little bit of healthy competition. Maybe help with surgery or help to prevent a some what smaller kind of house hold war if you know what I mean.
Hopefully you have found this information to be helpful and even useful. Maybe you may even start to include the angels more into your workings. If you are not pagan, well I hope that you have at least found this information to at least be a bit interesting.

I suppose sources can be wrong for the very same sigil is found in one of my books for Samael. Idk which is wrong or right... But I best find out....
jasmineb on March 05, 2013:
The moment I found your page I immediately recognized your sigil for Samael from one of my books on witches and witchcraft. So I looked it up and in it says that, that sigil is for Camael
Cresentmoon2007 (author) from Caledonia, MI on January 06, 2013:
And perhaps I didn't say this because there is information in some other beliefs that archangel azrael is the angel of death, look this up and you would know this. However you are correct about Lilith.
AmyB. on November 23, 2012:
This page leaves out a lot of information. It totally steers clear of his attribution as an archangel of death and poisons. As well as his equation to Satan and King of the Demons. You (the author) don't even mention his wife, Lilith, queen of the demons, and his other three wives ( all "angels" of sacred prostitution and demon queens).

Fryeurasia, you don't really have to be fully involved with Wicca or paganism, to summon Samael, so feel free to give it a shot
Fryeurasia on May 19, 2012:
I'm not a magician but I want to summon Samael. Can I do that?
Cresentmoon2007 (author) from Caledonia, MI on April 22, 2012:
I have a hub about Uriel on here that you can read. Creating your own invocation for him is the best way. Just use the candles that are mentioned in the hub that correspond with him along with other things mentioned that corresponds with him. Use your own words for invoking him, whatever comes to your heart.
Yung pro4u on April 22, 2012:
tanx cres, pls guide me in invoking uriel
Cresentmoon2007 (author) from Caledonia, MI on April 19, 2012:
Gideon and Yung, I'd say that Samael is not really used for invoking money, for money I'd try Uriel. He is the Archangel corresponded with the direction North and North is often times corresponded with material things.
Yung pro4u on April 11, 2012:
Can do money invocation using angel samael's name?
Gideon on April 11, 2012:
Can i invoke money using "angel samael" name?

Zoran, I really don't like any rituals of destruction. However if you are doing so for protection on the other hand then I will tell you that yes you may use Samael for rituals of destruction. The best thing to do is to really picture what you want. Prepare for the ritual by dance, a ritual bath or meditation, whatever suits you best. Use the proper candle color that matches up with destruction. Sit before the candle and light the candle. Picture the intention in your mind as you sit before the candle and draw or write this intention out on paper as well. Then fold this paper four or five times and dip it into the flame of the candle placing the paper in a burn safe container to burn safely. As it burns continue to picture your intention in your mind. Once it is done burning wait until the ashes are cooled and return the ashes to nature. Let the ashes blow into the wind outside. THen you are done.
Zoran on January 15, 2012:
Can i use this spirit ( Samael ) in the ritual of destruction, and how? Thank you..
Cresentmoon2007 (author) from Caledonia, MI on December 21, 2011:
