Dragon Related Rituals

It is well known that Dragons can be quite deceptive and at times capricious. When connecting with a Dragon it is strongly suggested that you show a great deal of patience and understanding. Always approach Dragons with the most absolute respect. They have been around for many a millennium and are quite wise and they are very aware of this.  Dragons have a mind of their own and will often react in unexpected ways. Don’t lose hope, learning from such ancient creatures can be very perplexing and yet very rewarding at the same time. Never express anger or negative feelings towards a Dragon. They can be quite sensitive and quick to react in a vindictive way. Dragons generally have a rather large ego that needs to be dealt with in a very careful way. In fact the best ritual for connecting with a Dragon is one that you, yourself have written. Dragons are very individual and will more rapidly respond to a personalized ritual with your energy interspersed throughout. But here are a couple of rituals to get you started.

Finding a Dragon Teacher
Find a quiet place in the woods or a secluded meadow. Meditate on the type of Dragon that you hope to encounter. Send these thoughts outwards so that they can be intercepted by an interested Dragon.  After spending some time meditating, draw a pentagram on the ground. In the middle of the pentagram draw a picture of a dragon (it can be a crude drawing).

Depending on what type of elemental dragon you are calling, place a stick of incense at each of the five points of the Dragon Pentagram. Light the incense. Place a candle of the same color as that of the type of Dragon that you seek, at each of the Elemental points(North, South, East, West). Light the candles and while concentrating on the flames, withdraw back into your Third Eye and clear your mind of any lingering thoughts. Visualize a fog or mist in your mind that is the same color as your desired Dragon. Make it known that you are seeking a teacher and that you would be a devoted student. Send out lots of love and positive energy. Watch this fog/mist and see if a Dragon starts to take shape out of it. If it does (this may take several attempts) then express your joy and love towards the Dragon that is forming from the mist. Once it is fully formed, venture to ask by what name it would like to be known as. Again express your love and desire to learn. Listen closely within your Third eye to see if any messages are forthcoming. Out of respect for the Dragon, keep this session rather short. Then each time that you do this ritual, expand your questions and listening each time. The next time that you connect with your Dragon, visualize the colored fog, but call it forth by name. This will build familiarity with your Dragon mentor and will allow it to respond more quickly. Always project feelings of love and respect when connecting with your Dragon, as they thrive on such feelings. If at first no Dragon comes forth out of the mists then wait for a day or so and try again…

Basic Dragon Ritual
Begin the ritual by going to the East, with Athame or sword in your power hand. Draw a Magickal circle on the floor around your ritual area. This is done by pointing the Athame/sword at the floor and visualizing a Blue flame emitting from the tip of your Athame/Sword. Move Deosil (clockwise) around the circle with this flame ending in the East. While drawing the circle, say:

“By Dragon Power, This Circle is Sealed”

Return to the altar. Point the Athame/Sword at the Dragon Pentacle and say:

“Dragons of  Spirit, Loftiest and most powerful of Dragons, Bless this altar with your Sacred Fire. Let us be as One in Magick, O Dragons Great and Wise”

Set the Water Chalice on the pentacle. With the wand in your power hand, encircle the chalice three times Deosil with the wand and say:

“Air, Fire, Earth, Water Bring your Power forth. Water of Land and Sea, Purified Be”

Hold the Chalice high and say:

“Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!”

Going Deosil, sprinkle the water lightly around the Sacred Circle beginning and ending in the  East. Set the dish of salt on the Pentacle. Circle it three times deosil with the wand and say:

“Water, Air, Fire, Earth, Hear my Inner most Desire. Salt of Earth and Sea, Purified Be”

Sprinkle a few grains of salt to each corner of the altar. Circle the incense burner three times with the wand and say:

Fire of Dragons, Fire of Earth, You Are Purified. Bring Power Forth.

Circle the Incense and Herbs three times deosil with the wand, say:

Incense Magickal, Incense Bold, Awake The Dragons, As Of Old. I call you forth Purified.

Put a small amount of incense onto the burning coals. Lift the burner by the chains and touch it lightly to the Pentacle. Lift it high over the altar, say:

Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!

Then carry it deosil around the circle, beginning and ending in the East.  Return the burner to the Altar. Take up the Athame/ Sword in both hands and kneel before the Altar. Mentally dedicate yourself to the study of Dragon Magick. Project your interest and love for the Dragons as strongly as possible. Continue doing so for several
minutes, then rise and point the Athame/Sword at the Dragon Pentacle and say with power and confidence:

Behold, All Dragons and Rulers of Dragons, I am (magickal name), a student who seeks Dragon Magick. With (name of Athame/Sword) in my hand, I freely enter the Realm of the  Dragons. Not for physical Battle, But for Knowledge and Wisdom. I Greet You, O Dragons Ancient and Wise, and await your Blessing and Guidance.

Continue holding the Athame/Sword outstretched until you feel the blessing of the Dragons enter your body. It is for this reason that a light Athame/sword is best used in ritual. When the flowing power, of the Dragons Blessing, has begun to lessen, lower the Athame/sword. Still holding the Athame/sword in your Power hand, take up the Dragon Pentacle in the other hand and go to the East. Point the Athame/sword at the Eastern direction and hold the Pentacle facing outward. Draw a Invoking Pentagram with the Athame/Sword, and say:

“From Sairys (sair’-iss), Ruler of the Eastern Dragons Fair, comes now the wondrous Power of Air
Invoking Pentagram

Feel the power of Air entering body with atahame/sword outstretched. When the flow stops, go to the South. Hold up the Dragon Pentacle again; draw an invoking Pentagram with the Athame/Sword, and say:

“From Fafnir (faf’-near), Ruler of Dragons of the South, comes Cleansing Fire from Dragon Mouth”

Feel the power of Fire entering your body and when it stops go to the next direction. Repeat the process of Holding up the Dragon Pentacle and drawing a invoking pentagram for each of the directions. Go to the West, say:

“From Naelyan (nail’-yon) Ruler of Dragons of the West, comes the Power of Water”

Draw into the body the power of Water. Go to the North and say:

“From Grael (grail), Ruler of Dragons of the North, the Power of Earth does now come forth”

Draw into oneself the power of Earth. When it stops return to the Altar, lay aside the Athame/Sword and Dragon Pentacle. Add the appropriate herbal incense to the incense burner according to the ritual you are performing.

At this point insert the appropriate chants and workings for the particular spell working or meditation to be performed.

If there is a problem that is unsolvable by physical means or by magic then now is also the time to ask the Dragons for advice on how to solve it. The Dragons are able to give new insight into ways of solving it. Continue to feel their power and direction as their directions are written down. When finished with the spell working, tap your staff three times and chant:

“I thank you, Dragons Old and Wise, of Earth and Fire, Water, and Skies, for sharing Wisdom here with Me. As I Will, So Shall It Be”

Always approach the Dragons as Equals not as a force to be ordered or conquered.  Set the Wine Chalice on the Pentacle. Circle it three times with the wand, and say:

Cup of Power, Cup of Might, Dragon Magick, Be here this Night

Drink the Wine (apple cider or grape juice may be substituted), saving back some to be poured outside on the ground later as an offering to the Dragons. If it is not possible to pour the offering outside then leave it on the Altar for about an hour, after closing your ritual.  Now is the excellent time to chant and use free-form dancing and invite the Dragons to share in the raised energy and joy of being a Student. Talk to them about hopes and dreams, listen to see if they have suggestions or words of encouragement.  This is an opportunity for close friendships to be forged.

Closing the Ritual
To close the ritual, take the Athame/sword and go to each of the directions draw a banishing pentagram and say the appropriate words for that direction

Banishing Pentagram

To the East, say:

“Go In Peace, Dragons of the East, And return again in the Ritual Hour

To the South, say:

“Go in peace, Dragons of the South, And return again in the Ritual Hour”

To the West, say:

“Go in Peace, Dragons of the West, And return again in the Ritual Hour”

To the North, say

“Go in peace, Dragons of the North, And return again in the Ritual Hour”

Return to the Altar. Raise both arms, say:

“Farewell to you, O Dragons Fair, Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. Together we make Magick well by power Deep and Dragon Spell. In peace, go now. Return once more to teach me Magick and Ancient Lore.
Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!”

Cut the circle with a backward sweep of the Athame/Sword across the boundary line. Extinguish the candles. Clear the Altar of all tools except any offerings to the Dragons if unable to pour outside.

Your Three Dragons Reading for Monday, July 6th

The Three Dragons Reading

The Dragon Reading creates a relationship between sets of tiles to each Dragon to explore how the Three Dragons will influence you now and in the near future.

 

 

The Red Dragon represents success, achievement and fulfillment. The three tiles under the Red Dragon tile will influence the power your Red Dragon currently has in your life

 

 

 

The Green Dragon indicates beginnings. The Green Dragon’s tile set will suggest places where you should consider putting your energy.

 

 

 

The White Dragon is indeed a wily fellow. His domain is the great unknown, and the tile set under him suggests an area or areas that could affect your life in unexpected ways.

 

The Element of Water: Naelyan (Dragon of Seas, Springs, Lakes, Ponds)

The Element of Water

Naelyan

(Dragon of Seas, Springs, Lakes, Ponds and Rivers)

 

The element of Water governs the western quarters of the circle. Its dragon ruler is Naelyan  (nail’-yon), who oversees the dragons of the seas, springs, lakes, ponds and rivers. Its color is pure blue; it is cold and moist. Positive association  of Water are: sunset, autumn, the water chalice, any form of helpful water, compassion, peacefulness, forgiveness, love, intuition, calmness, peace of mind.  Negative associations are: floods, rainstorms, whirlpools, any kind of harmful water, laziness, indifference, instability, lack of emotional control,  insecurity.

The subspecies of the element of Water are those of the seas and various waters. It is not unusual to find  this element working in conjunction with dragons of wind, storm, and weather, mountains and forest, or those of destruction.

In Cambodia, land of nagas and dragons, each reservoir has its temples where its divinity is  worshipped in dragon form. In Chinese legend, the first emperor to take on a dragon form, was Fu Hsi; this dragon-king put the Primordial Waters into order  by digging dikes, canals and irrigation ditches: he also tamed the Yellow River, making it safe for humans to live beside it.

Basic Dragon Ritual

Basic Dragon Ritual

This is the basis of all Dragon rituals in the practice of Dragon Magick. The
practicing magician can insert his / her own music, dance, meditation, or
personal rituals that they have written in appropriate places without disrupting
the flow of energy. When you read through this ritual you will see that certain
things are to be done at certain times other than that the Magician can do what
feels right to her / him. It is important that you have all the appropriate
tools and materials you will need before starting. Make any preparations so
that nothing disturbs you. If you are practicing decreasing Magick it is
important to remember that anywhere in the ritual that it says “circle
clockwise” ,you should circle counterclockwise. Another way of doing this is to
cast a clockwise outer circle with a counterclockwise inner circle.

Setting up Ritual :

Begin the ritual by going to the East, with sword in power hand “draw” Magickal
circle on floor around ritual area. This is done by pointing sword at the floor
and seeing great flames shooting from it. Move clockwise around the circle with
this flame ; end by overlapping it in the East. While drawing the circle, say:

By Dragon Power, This Circle is Sealed.

Return to the altar. Point the Sword at Dragon Pentacle and say:

Dragons of Spirit, Highest of Dragons and Most Powerful, Bless This Altar With
Your Fire. Let Us Be One In Magick, O Dragons Great and Wise.

Set the Water Chalice on the pentacle. With the wand in power hand, circle the
chalice three times clockwise with the wand and say:

Air, Fire, Earth, Bring Power Forth. Water Of Land and Sea, Purified Be.

Hold the Chalice high and say:

Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!

Sprinkle the water lightly around the circled area beginning and ending in the
East. Set the dish of salt on the Pentacle. Circle it three times clockwise with
the wand and say:

Water, Air, Fire, Hear My Desire. Salt of Earth and Sea, Purified Be.

Sprinkle a few grains of salt to each corner of the altar. Circle the incense
burner three times with the wand, say:

Fire of Dragons, Fire of Earth, You Are Purified. Bring Power Forth.

Circle the Incense and Herbs three times clockwise with the wand, say:

Incense Magickal, Incense Bold, Awake The Dragons, As Of Old. I Call You
Purified.

Put a small amount of incense onto the burning coals. Lift the burner by the
chains and touch it lightly to the Pentacle. Lift it high over the altar, say:

Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!

Then carry it clockwise around the circle, beginning and ending in the East.
Return the burner to the Altar. Take up Sword in both hands and kneel before the
Altar. Mentally dedicate self to the study of Dragon Magick. Project your
interest and love for Dragons as strongly as possible. Continue doing so for
several minutes, then rise and point the Sword at the Dragon Pentacle and say
with power and confidence:

Behold, All Dragons and Rulers of Dragons, I am (magickal name), a Magician Who
Seeks Dragon Magick. With (name of Sword) In My Hand, I Enter the Realm of The
Dragons, Not For Physical Battle, But For Knowledge and Power. I Greet You, O
Dragons Ancient and Wise, and Await Your Blessing and Guidance.

Continue holding the Sword outstretched until you feel the blessing of the
Dragons. It is for this reason that a light sword is best used in ritual. When
the flowing power of the Dragons Blessing has lessened, lower the sword. Still
holding the sword in Power hand, take up the Dragon Pentacle in the other and go
to the East. Point the sword at the Eastern position and hold the Pentacle
facing outward. Draw a Invoking Pentagram with the Sword,
say:

From Sairys (sair’-iss), Ruler Of The Eastern Dragons Fair, Comes Now The
Wondrous Power Of Air

Invoking Pentagram

Feel the power of Air entering body with sword outstretched. When the flow
stops, go to the South. Hold up the Dragon Pentacle again , draw an invoking
Pentagram with the Sword, say:

From Fafnir (faf’-near),Ruler Of Dragons Of The South, Comes Cleansing Fire
From Dragon Mouth

Note: Feel the power of Fire entering body and when it stops go to the next
direction. Repeat the process of Holding up the Dragon Pentacle and drawing a
invoking pentagram for each of the directions. Go to the West, say:

From Naelyan (nail’-yon) Ruler Of Dragons Of The West, Comes The Power Of Water

Draw into the body the power of Water. Go to the North and say:

From Grael (grail), Ruler Of Dragons Of The North, The Power Of Earth Does Now
Come Forth

Draw into oneself the power of Earth. When it stops return to the Altar, lay
aside the Sword and Dragon Pentacle. Add the appropriate herbal incense to the
incense burner according to the ritual you are performing. At this point insert
the appropriate chants and workings for the particular spellworking or
meditation to be performed. If there is a problem that is unsolveable by
physical means or by magic then now is also the time to ask the Dragons for
advice on how to solve it. The Dragons are able to give new insight into ways of
solving it. Continue to feel their power and direction as their directions are
written down. When finished with the spellworking, tap staff three times and
chant:

I Thank You, Dragons Old And Wise, Of Earth And Fire, Water, Skies, For Sharing
Wisdom Here With Me. As We Will, So Shall It Be

Always approach the Dragons as Equals not as a force to be ordered or conquered.
Set the Wine Chalice on the Pentacle. Circle it three times with the wand, say:

Cup Of Power, Cup Of Might, Dragon Magick, Be Here This Night

Drink the Wine (apple cider or grape juice may be substituted if unable to drink
wine), saving back some to be poured outside on the ground later as an offering
to the Dragons. If it is not possible to pour the offering outside then leave it
on the Altar for about an hour, after closing your ritual. Now is the an
excellent time to chant and use free-form dancing and invite the Dragons to
share in the raised energy and joy of being a Magician. Talk to them about hopes
and dreams, listen to see if they have suggestions or words of encouragement.
This is an opportunity for close friendships to be forged.

Closing the Ritual

To close the ritual, take the sword and go to each of the directions draw a
banishing pentagram and say the appropriate words for that
direction.

Banishing Pentagram

To the East, say:

Go In Peace, Dragons Of The East, And Return Again In The Ritual Hour

To the South, say:

Go In Peace, Dragons Of The South, And Return Again In The Ritual Hour

To the West, say:

Go In Peace, Dragons Of The West, And Return Again In The Ritual Hour

To the North, say

Go In Peace, Dragons Of The North, And Return Again In the Ritual Hour

Return to the Altar. Raise both arms, say:

Farewell To You, O Dragons Fair, Fire, Water, Earth, and Air. Together We Make
Magick Well By Power Deep and Dragon Spell. In Peace Go Now. Return Once More To
Teach Me Magick and Ancient Lore. Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!

Cut the circle with a backward sweep of the Sword across the boundary line.
Extinguish the candles. Clear the Altar of all tools except any offerings to the
Dragons if unable to pour outside.

This ritual is the basis of any and all rituals of Dragon Magick. Any specific
spellworkings need to be placed within this framework at the appropriate times.

The Use of the Pentacle In Dragon Magick

The Use of the Pentacle In Dragon Magick

A pentacle disk is necessary for consecrations and other ritual work. This is usually a metal or wooden disk with a pentagram (five-pointed star, one point upwards) painted or etched on it. However there is no reason that the pentacle cannot be made out of cardboard. The pentacle is of the element of both Spirit and Earth and helps to control and balance all the other elements. When used as an element of Earth, the pentacle grounds Spirit in the ritual.

 

The dragon pentacle can be used as either a picture or disk. It is presented during specific rituals as a means of establishing your authority to call upon the dragons, and is also of the element of Spirit.

Dowsing to Find Dragon Energy

Dowsing to Find Dragon Energy

  
For dowsing, you can use a pendulum or dowsing rods, neither of which have to be professionally made. A pendulum can be a small weight or crystal suspended on a thread or chain. The pendulum is held suspended by the chain in your power hand while you walk over an area. For some people, the pendulum will swing in a clockwise circle, for others back and forth, when an underground flow of power is crossed. By marking the ground wherever this occurs, you can trace a power line’s underground flow for long distances. Don’t try to walk along over the top of the flow, but rather cross it from the side. Back and forth working will allow you to be aware of any twists and turns the line might take.
 
Dowsing rods can be made from two coat hangers. Using a pair of wire cutters, cut off the hook and then straighten the remaining wire. Bend this long piece of wire in such a way as to provide short hand-grips and longer right-angle bars. Holding a bend rod loosely in each hand, the dowser walks slowly over an area until the long bars cross. The problem with dowsing in an inhabited area is that you will find every water line there. But it can be productive if you combine dowsing with watching for unusual anomalies in the vegetation growth or lack of plant life altogether. Energy flows have been known to shift position, following underground water or electrical lines.
 
Discovering such an energy line on your property makes it possible for you to know where to go to access a burst of power when you need it. Other lines may run through city parks or recreation areas, where you will not be trespassing if you go in for a pick-me-up.
