🕯️From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by SL MacGregor Mathers:🕯️Barbatos. “The Eighth Spirit is Barbatos. He is a Grand Duke, and appears when the Sun is in Sagittarius, with four noble Kings and their companies of great troops. It gives understanding of birdsong and the voices of other creatures, such as dogs barking.He opens the Hidden Treasures that have been placed by Wizard Enchantments. He is of the Order of Virtues, of which some part still retains; and he knows all things past and future, and reconciles friends and those in power. He rules over 30 Legions of Spirits.
🕯️From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” (1583) Written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier):🕯️Barbatos, a great earldom or count, and also a duke, he appears in Signo sagittari sylvestris,1 with four kings, who bring companies and great troops. He understands the singing of birds, the barking of dogs, the lowing of oxen, and the voice of all living creatures. He detects treasures hidden by magicians and sorcerers, and is of the order of virtues, which in part govern: he knows all things past and future, and reconciles liberties and powers; and rules thirty legions of divels by his authority.
🕯️From “Dictionnaire Infernal” (edição de 1863) Writing by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy:🕯️Original text: Barbatos, great and powerful demon, count-duke in the underworld, type of Robin Hood; he appears under the figure of an archer or a hunter; em meets him in the forests. Four kings sound the horn in front of him. He learns to guess by the song of birds, the bellowing of bulls, the barking of dogs and the cries of various animals. He knows the treasures buried by magicians. He reconciles estranged friends. This demon, which was formerly of the order of the virtues of the heavens or that of the dominations, is reduced today to ao comandante thirty infernal legions. He knows the past and the future.
ANALYSISBarbatos has most of the attributes of the Greek Orpheus, which gathered animals around him when he played his lyre, communicating with them through his poetry and music.His death is said to have taken place violently by a group of wild women, who tore him apart and threw his head (still singing) into a river. The nine muses then gathered the pieces of Orpheus and buried them on Mount Olympus.From then on, nearby birds began to sing more sweetly, influenced by the presence of Orphic energy. The conciliation of friendships, the healing of sorrows and the influence on the powerful is achieved with his poetry and music, and the obtaining of treasures is achieved when Orpheus sleeps or tames the guardians who take care of riches (as in the myth of Cerberus).In the manifestation of Barbatos, the archetype of Orpheus presents itself in a more ancient and wiser way, therefore approaching Saturn, and in this case the knowledge of the past and the future becomes one of his attributes.In astrology, Barbatos can be associated with Saturn (the Elder, with knowledge of time) and also with Chiron (knowledge of nature and communication with animals, as well as healing).As in the Major Arcana The Force, Barbatos uses his inner power to tame beasts and control lions, without resorting to brute force or violence. The tradition and elder character are also reflected in The Hermit Arcana. Also, coherently, these cards are related to Orpheus and Saturn.
