In ancient times, Historians of Astrology professed that Angels were considered to govern the four elements, those of Earth, Air, Water and Fire. This came to fruition by the Middle Ages and has continued to the present day. It is believed that the angels moved the stars, tended plants, and graced the procreation of all living creatures, including the births of humankind. Angels are messengers of God, when we are in time of need, we can call upon our Lord for help and we can ask our angels to intercede on our behalf.
