The Dragon Tarot Spread

tarot

The actual spread begins much like a standard Celtic Cross, but adds more cards for more clarification.

1. THE HEART OF THE QUESTION: This cards placement is the one that represents the core of the question or problem posed to you, consciously or unconsciously.

2. WHAT CROSSES THE QUESTION: This cards placement represents obstacles that may manifest themselves to oppose your objective. Here is where the Dragon as an antagonist raises its mighty head. Take heed! This card is to show you the problem in obtaining your objective. Recognize it! Understand it! That is the only way you can overcome what the card is showing you.

3. THE FOUNDATION: Why this objective (the question) is even present in your life. This card can be almost harder to accept then #2. Most people want to know why things are happening (or not happening) to them in their life, but they fail to realize that they are more often then not the cause of such obstacles. The card in this placement should clarify this.

4. OUTSIDE INFLUENCES: Where placement #3 usually represents the questioner’s own influences (or obstacles) on the question, here we have any possible influences that may pertain to the question.

5. THE SHADOWTAIL CARD: Here, unknown, unseen events surrounding the question are made known (possibly for the first time). Usually a very surprising card for the person.

6. YOUR HOPES: Now we move onto the Wings of the Dragon. One wing (the Wing of Light) starts with the person’s deep felt hopes regarding the question. Pretty straight forward.

7. YOUR FEARS: And here on the other wing (the Wing of Shadows) we begin with the person’s fears towards the question or situation. Both placement 6 and 7 should be regarded as the questioner’s feelings on the matter, whether they are realistic or not (and usually are not in both cases).

8. THE WING OF LIGHT: This position reveals the best possible solution the question could ever hope to receive. If you don’t see it here, it isn’t going to happen.

9. THE WING OF DARKNESS: This card will reveal the worst possible solution the situation can offer. Both position 8 and 9 represent the spectrum of the outcome that will be revealed in the remaining cards. Sometimes this can be a comforting card. Most people’s greatest fear is the worst thing that could happen. Well, here it is. Usually this card is never as bad as most people think.

10. THE PAST: This card will show the questioner’s past that has bearing on the question and may be influencing it.

11. THE PRESENT: This shows how the person feels about the question and how it relates to their life now.

12. &13. THE FUTURE: Here we have two cards to represent the most likely outcome of the posed question. These cards (considered to be the Dragon’s Eyes, or perhaps the Dragon’s Horns) are to be read together, giving a more detailed, in-depth view towards the question. More times then not, the final outcome usually falls somewhat in-between what the two wing cards have shown.

Ratanen – Fog Dream. Represents the mists of all that was, is, or will be, and made of raw chaotic energies, Ratanen is the substance of dreams and can be called upon and shaped by those with the knowledge to do so to create or destroy anything. These are the fogs between times, and the underlaying force that keeps a time from stagnating and fading away.Phonetic value “k”

Drakani – Dragon Queen. Rune of Tiamat, goddess whose body creates the sky and the earth and ruler of dragons.

Sh’oren – Flowing Knowledge. Rune of the Akasha, holding all knowledge. Understanding this rune comes over time, but is only pure knowledge and on its own can be dangerous to use without wisdom. Best used in conjunction with Drakani or Shoren to understand the Chaos in the mists. Meditate on this rune with a question in mind to assist access to the Akasha. Phonetic value “s”

Ihanen – Dream Dancing. Guidance through the chaos and the rune to weave existance from dream material. Rune of creation and calling the first dragons called from the mists.

Deigomah – Tainted Storm. The increase in the use of magic in a chaotic environment attracts yet more chaos, twisting and warping the minds of those who come in contact with its energies. Deigomah is necessary for the development of the fresh existance, bringing with it change and creativity. Phonetic value “ng”

Athanen – Dream Forge. The once chaotic mists are deeply forged into the stiffness of law and order. Many thrive in times of peace and justice, but little new is discovered, created, or found.

Shoren – Flowing Wisdom. The quiet brought by Athanen gives time for many to reflect and ponder on the vast knowledges and experiences that have gone before them. Wisdom develops quickly and many are enlightened through these events. Phonetic value “y”

Nanen – Hearts Dream. Many of the enlightened find others along a similar path, and they pair together with each other as companions during thier walk through life. Those dragons joined during Nanen often find thier way back to each other over many incarnations time and again. Phonetic value “l”

Ionali – Powerful Heart Fire. Those that still retain a spark of the chaos within themselves may yet experince passion tempered by wisdom. The passion of Ionali often comes to those that did not pair during Nanen, and grant the dragon insight to find and experience the purpose in thier lives that they were meant for, yeilding a fullness of life, and a reason to remain on thier current plane of existance. Phonetic value “ei”

Drakaneal – Dragon Beauty. All who have experienced Nanen or Ionali, share a bond with each other, and many work and live together in unity, each providing as they can to the community. Despite the tiny amounts of chaos still around, the dragons co-existing during Drakaneal achieve much creativity in that which they do.

Satihan – Hurricanes Dance. The long subdued chaos begins to seep out, and roils forth to consume the order it finds so distasteful, once more making it part of the timeless fogs. The plane is wiped clear, and ready for the next being to shape it to thier will. Phonetic value “u”

Dealing With Dragons

Dealing With Dragons

 

Dragons can be very difficult to deal with at times. They can be very arrogant, stubborn, and all mighty, and at other times very nice, co-operative, and respectful. It will all depend on how you approach a Dragon how they will react to you. Since they have come to be very cautious of humans, earning their trust and respect are the first things you need to do. By doing so, you will end up with a great relationship with them. Here are some things to keep in mind when dealing with them.

1. Don’t ever call a Dragon into your circle and start ordering them around. Treat them like you like to be treated. Give them the respect as equals and not servants, and they will work with you.

2. Don’t show them that you fear them. They have very heightened sense and can actually smell fear. If they detect any fear whatsoever they wont respect you as an equal and consider anything you do a waist of time and energy on their part.

3. Don’t ever attack a Dragon you have called. You called them; they didn’t call you.

4. Dragons are very intelligent. Don’t try and pull a fast one over on them.

5. Dragons tend to speak in riddles and symbolism. At least until you have worked with them for a while.

6. The only tool a Dragon respects (not fears) is the Athame/Sword, but only when wielded by a confident practitioner who is prepared to stand his ground.

7. If you feel uncomfortable with a certain Dragons presence, carefully and politely explain your wishes and desires concerning them. They will understand you and either work along with you or leave you be.

8. Before rejecting a Dragons help or presence, firstly find out what they have to show or teach you. They wont hang around where they are not wanted.

9. Always give them an offering. They wont do something for nothing.

10. Most Dragons tend to be subtle in their first few contacts with you. Be sensitive and extra aware of what is occurring around you for if there is anything that would endanger them they wont make their presence known.

11. Watch what you ask for, they take things literally and without mercy. Don’t leave any loopholes in any petition you present to them.

The Dragon Path for the Experienced Practitioner

The Dragon Path for the Experienced Practitioner

 

The Path to be coming a dragon mage for the experienced. After being in contact with your guardians and you’ve found yourself a guide on the astral world it’s time to work with the inner self. Like the path of the magician the path of the dragon mage is very similar to start off with. Your guide will help you through this processes.

1 Self Discovery – knowing yourself.

This journey can be difficult at times but the most important thing to remember is to be honest with yourself. Without honesty you’ll end up in more trouble than you started with. Self discovery comes first in any magickal discipline. Very occasionally a truly exceptional student can define him/herself through the process of learning, but most times you HAVE to learn about yourself first. While I am sure you are exceptional, that very quality should show you why knowing yourself is indeed critical to the process. During this process you should find out what triggers make you behave the way you do. With those triggers known you can start learning the discipline needed to bring magick into your life. Accomplish this and you can start living a magickal existence.

For example, many entities on other planes of existence routinely use your fears against you. If you come into conflict with them and you are afraid of small spaces and do not know it, or have not over come it, you may perceive yourself as suddenly being trapped in a small narrow space. This can paralyze you with fear, sapping your will to do anything to defend yourself, unable to move, caught in a fit of blind, helpless panic. This is an extremely common tactic.

Self-knowledge allows the practitioner to utilize the most powerful tool available. It is not in a spell book, it cannot be bought, although it can be “sold”, it is Will. How can ‘Will’ be sold? Easy, drink or eat to excess, take drugs, do anything that weakens the disciplined life you must lead to be a true dragon mage. When you know yourself, you can use your will to very potent effect.

Unless you truly understand what drives you, you will never develop the Will to use Magick effectively. Let me repeat this as it is a most critical point, unless you truly understand what drives you, you will NEVER develop the Will to use Magick effectively. Will is the key to magick. Knowing yourself is the key to Will. Control of the mind becomes easy when these techniques are applied. The mind is not used to discipline. Teaching it is a long process. It takes years. Once applied, the discipline will become second nature. You will gain confidence, self-control, and be able to apply lessons in a useful manner for the rest of your life.

If what drives you is selfish that is all right, 90% of the accomplishment in the world are done for selfish purposes. Including the “altruistic” ones. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are doing something for someone else’s benefit when your true motive is to get noticed/praised/patted on the back/revenge/one up a rival/ well, you get the point. What is the pleasure/ benefit you receive from your actions? This is knowing yourself, your motives. This is your True Will. Every spell or process you do in accordance with your True Will will be much more powerful and likely to succeed. Doing these spells for any reason aside from your True Will dooms it to failure.

2. Fear of probing the hidden areas in your soul.

There will be Trauma in re-living some of the memories and in re-experiencing the actions that caused problems in the first place, but sometimes the only way to heal a deep penetrating wound is to cut it open and let it heal from the inside out instead of outside in. This is a dangerous stage. Many loose their nerve here and go never to return, either into insanity or away from this path altogether. This is not from the study of dark areas of magick, but from remembering past traumas, such as abuse, molestation, and other things.

This is a necessary step in order to know yourself. It cannot be avoided. During this time it is advisable to have someone to help you through the trauma associated with these memories. This person can be a concerned friend, a psychologist or a loved one or lover. My wife was my stability just as I was hers. Whomever you choose, they can commiserate with you as you try to deal with different traumas, slap you when you are too self-indulgent and self-pitying and so on. Your “guard” must to be someone you know and trust implicitly. They must also know you well enough not to let you fall into any self-deluding or self-pitying traps. Make no mistake, they will happen. People want to exculpate themselves from blame.

3. Acceptance of the dark self.

Most never get here. “Better buried than stinking again,” is the attitude many use to keep from getting here. Learn to live with the scars. Don’t glory in them, but acknowledge that they have taught you something.

Coming to terms with your own personal dark side is important. It cannot be ignored. Dealing with the trauma that happened caused by things that happened is something else entirely. Different people deal with memories and trauma in different ways, but you need to learn to recognize when a bad experience is affecting your judgment or actions so that you can break out of that cycle. Until you break out of a particular cycle of behavior, it will continues to affect you in many ways, most notably by setting up the circumstances of your own destruction. An example of this is a person who is married and lying to their spouse about having affairs. The pattern of behavior can be due to an unresolved problem of the past where the cheater learned that this behavior is “ok”. Another instance is the person who has learned not to trust anyone to be reasonable or worthy of trust as the result of mistreatment as a child.

4. Doubt of yourself, your environment your family and even the Gods. The belief that “I am not really doing this… It’s all in my imagination.”

This is NORMAL. Self-doubt is a good tool to keep from becoming another Napoleon or Hitler. It teaches us. And while self-confidence is a good thing, too much leads to hubris.

With two exceptions*, all of us have been trained by society to disbelieve anything that we cannot verify with our five primary senses . While many are willing to acknowledge that there may be other senses we possess, few are ready to come out and say “Yes, I can see into other worlds and interact with the beings there.” Society would brand them as a freak and do it’s best to destroy that person for non-conformity. Since few people are brave enough to withstand ridicule or societal destruction, we learn to ignore those things we can’t rationally explain. Remember, while this stage is normal, it is critical that the prospective Dragon magi advance beyond this stage.

Again, a percentage of people will get this far and give up. Part of coming to terms with your self is to look at your confidence problems. Many of us who are attracted to this kind of work have very vivid imaginations. It is only natural that some of us may decide we are crazy and nothing we are experiencing could have happened on this plane of reality. Please, remember, “As you believe, so will it be”. If you believe that you are imagining it all, then you will be.

5. Peaceful Acceptance, of the Dark, and the Light.

Inner Peace is a stillness of soul that many would call “steady”. Acceptance of yourself and the wisdom to over come in this area. The concept is self-explanatory.

Generally, this is the goal of all magickal systems, in which the practitioner finds him/herself and accepts him/herself as s/he is. Because of that acceptance the magician is now self-actualized, at peace and able to love everyone because s/he is no longer dependant upon others for his/her happiness. Able to discover new worlds of connection to everything within him/herself, this is the “gold” that the Alchemists were after.

6. I am no longer a mere mortal, I feel so Olympian and distant from humanity.

This is one final phase that some magickal practitioners have spoken to me about, and that is disconnectedness with normal people. While it is normal to pity most of humanity and the fact that they do not understand things as you do, and that they MUST live in a world ruled by sorrow and misery instead of in a world of joy and wonder, one must not ever think they are less than us.

When it comes to believing your better than the human race and other people on the planet this is usually where you’ve taken a wrong turn. Sure, your at peace with yourself you understand the ways of life and have accepted who you are, why not share this with the rest of the world? A lot of people try to heal others in this type of situation, to show them the ‘way’ the path to enligtenment…

Healing is a dangerous skill. In order to heal someone, you must first know how to harm him or her as well. THIS IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS. You are mucking around with someone else’s body, mind, or soul. You can do PERMANENT harm to them unless you know exactly what you are doing and why.

Megalomania and hubris are a part of this too. The scales must balance between doubt and this condition, tipping in neither direction. These emotions can grow naturally out of the previous stage. It is related to knowing that YOU did something that was good and right, that you made a difference and that YOUR spell changed the world in some way that you CAN see. With that knowledge, the immediate reaction is usually, “OH BOY! I can do anything I want to do because this stuff REALLY does work!”

This is a dangerous stage. The problem here is “I have some training, I can do anything I want and no one can stop me.” Kind of like a beginning student in Martial Arts who is getting an inflated ego. Usually the Master will have to knock them down a few notches to get them to understand that there are bigger and badder things out there.

It is believed by many people that it is impossible to go through all these steps within one life time… some of the eldest people are still dealing with life tramas and accepting the dark. The key is to work on yourself while receiving lessons from your Dragon guides. They can see through you and into your spirit so they’ll know the progress your making. The further with these steps you go the further your training as a dragon mage will take you. A lot of these steps are used for a magickian as well. It’s always important to know yourself when working with magick.

The Dragon Path for Beginners

The Dragon Path for Beginners

 

The most important thing to know when practicing Dragon Magick is that you’ve got a connection with dragons. You don’t have to absolutely adore them; you at least have to see them, think about them, or just know that they are there. Wanting to be a Dragon Mage is very hard work and should be considered greatly before taking the first step.

The first step to becoming a Dragon Mage would be to find your Guardian Dragon. Not all Dragon Magi have guardians but most do. You can’t spend your days waiting for a guardian to come. Often, you can’t use magick to ‘buy’ yourself a guardian either. If you have one, you’ll know. A Guardian Dragon is not a “puppy dog.” The younger the dragon the more excited he/she usually is to be the guardian of a human, but you must remember that dragons do grow and so do humans. Even the smallest dragons need to be treated with the utmost respect. I have never seen a dragon disrespect a human but I have seen the opposite.

The easiest way to find your Guardian Dragon is to wait for them to reveal their presence. If for sometime now you have been feeling energies and witnessing items being knocked over, this can at be your Guardian Dragon. One thing you must remember though is when you do feel a dragon in your house it does not mean that it’s “your” Guardian Dragon. Sometimes it can take years for a dragon to decide to be someone’s guardian. And also, Dragon Magi don’t even need guardian dragons, so just because there is one in your house or one that’s been following you for years, unless he/she tells you otherwise, don’t jump to conclusions and think that you have a Guardian Dragon.

Once you have communicated with your Guardian he/she will be your key to other worlds. Most of us can astral on our own, but to find a Dragon Guide we usually need to be allowed in worlds that consist of dragons. For those who have been in other astral worlds and saw rouge dragons, this could either mean they have been banned and are solitary, or they are guardians of some other being. Dragons are solitary beings, but they do all live together on one plane. There may be other dragon planes, but I myself have only been to the one, so I can only talk from experience. If you can enter this world with your Guardian Dragon you will find yourself overwhelmed with the amount of dragons that live on this plane. Not all of these dragons are going to be your friend so you’ll have to tread carefully.

Few people make it to this stage because once they find a Guardian Dragon they think that’s all they need to practice Dragon Magick and become a Dragon Mage. Finding your Dragon Guide is very important to follow the Path of the Dragon.

On the astral world you may either feel two things: A force so powerful that you want to cringe, cry and retreat the way you came. Or you’ll feel a faint calling from one of the Dragons. The first Dragon to approach you on this world is most likely your Guide, but don’t assume it just yet. What till he/she announces it.

So, you now have your Guardian Dragon, and your Guide, and are ready to start the Path of the Dragon. Your guide will be like a teacher. I have 2 guides. One for magickal purposes and one for spiritual. Though I should warn you that the Path of the Dragon is not magickal for the first few stages. You must commit yourself to a path of spiritual knowledge and wisdom first. Your guide will set out tests for you just like any other teacher and you will be informed on whether you pass or not. If you do pass you go up a level. If you fail, you repeat.

Draconian Codes of Honor

Draconian Codes of Honor

 

The Draconian Tradition has Codes of Honor that is followed by all true Dragon Mages. It is followed in magickal workings and in everyday life. There are sometimes when we can’t follow the Codes to the exact word, but to completely ignore them would be foolish. Dragons will not work with a practitioner that ignores them. But one, who follows them to the best of their ability, earns the respect of Dragons and will have no problem working with them.

1. In all that you do consider its benefit or harm to yourself, your family, and your Clan.

2. Your duty is always to yourself, your family, and your Clan.

3. Be honest with yourself and others and let them know you will not accept anything but honesty in return. You should always be above reproach or criticism in the eyes of the world.

4. You should always strive to be kind to others, or, should kindness prove impossible, strive always to be just.

5. Give your bond only after great consideration as to how it may affect your duties to yourself, your family, and your Clan. And when you do give your bond it should carry the weight of a signed blood oath.

6. Pledge friendship and your assistance only to those who are worthy and honorable. Work to strengthen those of your family, friends, and your Clan, and they will strengthen you.

7. Do not pass on anything you have not personally witnessed or verified. Never give unproven hearsay the weight of truth.

8. What you have hold. Let no one take from you, your family, or your Clan that which is rightfully and legally yours.

9. The laws of the land should be obeyed whenever possible and within reason for the protection of yourself, your family, and your Clan, for in the main they have been chosen with wisdom.

10. Never reveal the secrets entrusted to you by your family, your Clan, or your friends without permission. Possession of a wagging tongue marks you as a fool. Exceptions to this are when keeping the secret would endanger an innocent, bring unjustified dishonor to another, bring shame or dishonor to your family, your Clan, or friends, allow a criminal to go unpunished, or seriously violate the laws of the land. In this matter let common sense prevail.

11. Never neglect your family, your Clan, or your friends. Have the fierceness of a Dragon in their defense and always be certain they are provided for before starting any endeavor.

12. Offer forgiveness only to those who are truly repentant of wrongs committed against you, your family, your Clan or your friends. And when you offer forgiveness, do so with honesty, for to do so grudgingly is not forgiveness but deceit.

13. Always remember that the fury and excitement of the moment can play havoc with the truth. To keep one’s head in any situation is a virtue.

14. Have respect and honor for all Dragons and the Dragons of the Land. For they will assist you in your endeavors if you do.

15. Dignity, a gracious manner and a good humor are to be admired and cultivated. They will aid you to bring honor to your family, and your Clan.

16. Try always to be prepared for whatever the future may bring. Life with all of its joys, sorrows, and secrets is to be embraced and experienced to the fullest, for this is how one gains wisdom.

17. Respect yourself as a child of the Dragons. Have pride, but not arrogance, in yourself, your appearance, and your position in the Clan. Do your best in all things. Be gracious with self-praise, without bragging, and self-forgiveness when warranted.

18. When you gain authority, use it carefully and with wisdom. Remember that authority will grow with experience, and as a Priest/Priestess of a Clan you should exercise it with care and dignity.

19. Power does not come with authority, but can be given. Be wary of how you use any power given to you, for power over something does not always give you the authority to control it.

20. When your time in this life is done, return to the Dragons, and stand before them with pride, not arrogance. For a life lived with dignity, respect, and honor is one to be prideful of.

What is Draconic Wicca?

What is Draconic Wicca?

 

Draconic Wicca is the utilization of the powers of the dragons. There are as many dragons as there are people. They are as varied as humans are also. We work with these dragons to achieve the results that we seek. In doing so, we have to deal with the unique personalities of each type of dragon. The dragons have no real hierarchy other than age, except for the case of ‘The Dragon’.

The Dragon is the combined powers of the God and the Goddess. The Dragon is invoked or evoked during Sabbats and in times when great magick is needed (not when you can not find your keys). Invoking means to call into you the power of the dragon that you name i.e. a fire dragon. You ask that this dragon assume himself/herself into your spiritual body. To evoke means to call a dragon to you, to join you in your magickal workings.

The reason it is called Draconin “Wicca” is because of the similarities to the wiccan religion of today. This religion was originally brought to Earth by the blessed races when Atlantis was formed. The name of the religion itself cannot be pronounced in present English certainly not spelled. This religion was taken away from the Atlantians and Atlantis destroyed.The druids were the descendants of the Old Religion and passed on by mouth.

The spirits God: The god is the male half of the ‘divine being’. He has many faces and has known many names. To wiccans, he is known as the horned god, the sun god, and many more. God is not just Father, he is Mate, Consort, Lover, Friend, Brother, Hunter, Husband, Law-giver, and Partner.

Goddess: The goddess is the female half of the ‘divine being’. She also has had many faces and many names. Wiccans, druids, and the coven all respect the Maiden, Mother, and Crone aspect of the goddess show in the entire universe.

Red Dragon: The Red Dragon is effectively the goddess of the dragons and very, very few known her actual name. She represents all of the blessed races and has a counterpart for each. Dragons/Races of the

Elements: Each race has its own head keeper of the elements and/or directions. The elements are: Air, Earth, Fire, Water, Light, Darkness and Spirit These spirits are called in to help with specific elements and what the elements and directions can help with different things. Healing would be Earth for example.

Many names are used to invoke different aspects of the above spirits. The goddess might be invoked as Bast (Egyptian name) for example for healing and another time Athena (Greek) for wisdom. There is a good saying. “There are many faces of the one god.” However this doesn’t apply for the Red Dragon of other guardians of the elements. This mostly applies for the God and Goddess aspects. The sabbats are more like the old druidic sabbats, which any good reference is hard to find, than the ones that are found in Wiccan religions.
