John Thomas (1826–1908) was a Welsh mystic of the late 19th century. He used the professional name "Charubel" to practice, claiming to be a clairvoyant, occultist and healer.

Early years[edit]

As a young man John Thomas studied for the Christian ministry, but ultimately followed occult and psychic interests.

Writings[edit]

Adopting the pseudonym "Charubel", he published numerous books and was editor of several esoteric periodicals. He co-authored Degrees of the Zodiac Symbolised with the much younger mystic and astrologer Sepharial (Dr Walter Gorn Old).

He developed a set of occult symbols that he is known for; these were first published in Alan Leo's Astrologer's Magazine in 1893.
