Augiel

Augiel (Hebrew AaVGIAL, “Hinders”) in¬†Kabbalistic¬†tradition are the¬†Qlippoth¬†or demonic powers associated with¬†Chokmah, the second¬†Sephirah¬†of the Tree of Life. They appear as giants twined around serpents. There are various spellings of their name such as Ghagiel, Chaigiel, Ghogiel, and Chaigidiel.

Augiel or Chaigidiel represents the Sphere spreading Confusion of the Power of God. This counter acts with the wisdom of God represented by the Chokmah Sephirah. This creates confusion in God’s creation. The cortex of Chaigidiel is called Chogiel, “Those Who Go Forth into the Place Empty of God.”

Beelzebub, Lord of the Flies, and Adam Belial, the Wicked Man, are major demonic powers of this Sphere. Satan is often associated with Beelzebub. Adam Belial is frequently mentioned separately. A.G.H.
