Haniel (Hebrew: הניאל‎, "Joy of God" or Hebrew: חַנִּיאֵל‎, "Grace of God"), also known as Anael, Hanael or Aniel, is an angel in Jewish lore and angelology, and is often included in lists as being one of the seven archangels.[1] Haniel is generally associated with the planet Venus, and she is the archangel of the Sephirah Netzach. The name Haniel probably derives from Hebrew hana'ah, "joy", "pleasure" (qualities associated with Venus) + the suffix -el, "God". Haniel is one of the archangels encrypted in the Sigillum Dei Aemeth of Dr. John Dee and Edward Kelly.
