Dragon Mythology


The world is full of stories about legends, magical events and fantastic creatures. For thousand s of years mythical creatures had been a part of literature in stories, songs and artworks. The magical world of powerful dragons, witches, knights and elves still continue to entertain, terrify and inspire us in this digital age. Stories about dragons appear all throughout history in every part of the world and almost every culture has their own idea about dragons. Dragons first appeared in myths around 4000 B.C at the time of the gods in mythology. This legendary creature typically has serpentine or reptilian traits.

Dragons have two distinct cultural traditions: the European dragon derived from Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies and the Chinese dragon with counterparts in other Asian countries like Japan and Korea. The dragon’s form varied from huge bat-winged fire breathing to scaly lizard or snake with barbed tail. Dragons are typically depicted as gigantic and powerful with magical or spiritual qualities. They are perceived in different ways by different cultures. In East Asia, dragons are revered as representative of the forces of nature, religion and the universe. They are associated with wisdom, strength and longevity. But the Greeks and Roman conceived dragons as beneficent powers dwelling in the inner parts of the earth. In Christianity dragons are symbolic of sin and paganism.

Dragons are often called guardian spirits. They are also called light workers. They make great allies of witches, psychics and clairvoyants for protection and guidance. Dragon magic has its base from the five main elements of earth, fire, wind, air and spirit. Dragons’ ability to help in divination is quite accurate. Draconic Wicca utilises the powers of the dragons by calling the elements in its dragon form. They deal with the unique personalities of each type of dragon to achieve the results they seek.

According to the mythology of dragon during the medieval times, knights protect their kingdom from menacing dragons. Medieval dragons are depicted as monsters, taking young women of child bearing age and royal bloodlines. Brave knights attempted to hunt down and slay dragons. Asian mythology however showed that a brave knight can be a good dragon companion. Hidesato, a brave knight in Japan helped the Dragon King and he was bestowed four gifts - a magic bag of rice that would never become empty, a cooking pot that heated without fire, a self-replenishing roll of silk, and a bell that had long been hidden under the lake.

Norse Viking warriors are dragon fanatics too, they installed dragon figureheads on the prows of their long ships to frighten and scare people to total submission. Norse dragons were depicted in ancient Viking culture as a way of symbolizing power and strength to instil fear in their enemies. In Scandinavia, dragons are associated with the dead; dragons are believed to be the guardians over the graves of the dead people.

Elves are humanoid race possessing the innate beauty and easy gracefulness. They love nature and magic and the good things of the world. Elves are magical creatures that make good dragon’s companions. They are renowned for their mastery of magic and weapons such as the sword and bow. They are famous for living long lives; they are capable of living more than half a millennium and remain physically youthful. Their primary race is viewed as both wondrous and haughty by other races.

The dragon is the combined powers of the god and the goddess. They are seen as Deities and held in highest regard. They represent wisdom and balance. Dragon can be evoked when great magic is needed. But you cannot force a dragon to befriend you, nor can you choose the personality of your dragon companion. Just invite dragons into your life and make them feel welcome so you can achieve the results you seek.

Creature Comforts: Sleeping Arrangements for Dragons

Dragons, it will not surprise you to know, need a lot of space in bed; they are large creatures after all. Not only that, but the dragon gets very hot whilst snoozing under the covers. The fire breathing dragon snuffles and snores with the best of them and requires something substantial with a solid base beneath him or her. As much as we have all read about dragons coveting treasure, they do not like sleeping on lumpy surfaces; even if that may be a pile of bloody great treasure.

No, the dragon needs a bed, preferably a four poster, of course, which is exceedingly well made and comfortable. Dragons, often, spend a lot of time in battle for this or that, and when they come home after a fierce day fighting for their desires, they wish, merely, to relax in splendour. A good bed base, wood for wooden dragons, brass for metal dragons, granite for earth dragons, amber for fire dragons, and a water bed, of course, for our water dragons. Strangely, the water bed has fallen out of fashion; who can forget the trials and tribulations of copulating in a water bed? It was always terribly difficult to get a purchase or a foothold when thrusting.

But, seriously folks, creature comforts: sleeping arrangements for dragons are no laughing matter. Bedroom furniture is a high priority for all the dragons I know; if you can’t be comfy in the sack, where on earth can you be? Personally, I like a timber bed frame, and if it is well finished it hardly ever gets singed; only when I, perchance, have a bad dream. I, generally, like to lie on my back, snout facing upward to the ceiling, and sleep in this position for the largest part of the evening. A beautiful and well designed piece of wooden bedroom furniture can bring a shine to me eye.

Dragons may keep some gold beneath their bed, but nothing that will poke too high into the springs or slats of the bed base. No golden swords or spears, no jousting sticks or jewel encrusted maces, and no large bulky treasure chests. A cellar is best advised to keep all these objects out of the bedroom, so that a creature can get undisturbed rest. A good night’s sleep is probably more important to a dragon than some of your other mythical beasts. Trolls, for instance, now don’t get me started on trolls….


Valentine’s Day for Dragons: His Hot Breath Sends Her Wings A-Flutter

There is nothing like a dragon in bed, he or she, can beat back those blankets and sheets in fiery passion and shake down the thunder from the sky. Talk about whimper and moan in conjugal bliss; you bet your bottom stocking baby. The fire breathing scaly old dragon can bonk with the best of them and then come back for more. So, Valentine’s Day for dragons: his hot breath sends her wings a-flutter for sure. Curling up with a warm body on a cold night, playing tongues with a drippingly wet fuck buddy, and making mad love on the mattress, are all things you should remember to honor your dragon.

In those fantasy romance novels, and those erotic stories, your dragon takes pride of place, stimulating the libido of the narrative with his or her very presence. When you’ve got it, flaunt it baby. The power and the passion can make a grown woman gush. Like an electric brush fire in a tinder dry forest, the dragon paws the ground, or rather claws the ground. There is a shimmer in the air and the magic of love is suddenly all around. Valentine’s Day for dragons: his hot breath sends her wings a-flutter.

Where do you celebrate your Valentine’s Day with a lusty dragon? Do you publically parade your good fortune in dating a dragon by eating out at the most expensive restaurant in town? Or, do you celebrate privately in a blaze of sexual abandonment with your engorged scaly beast in the bedroom of a five star palace? Love and its demands are uniquely met by all of us as distinctive individuals in partnerships. There is no right or wrong, really, as long as you say yes to another excess, in whatever format is most appropriate to your relationship.

The Feast of Saint Valentine’s Day, to give this day its proper title, was originally a Christian liturgical feast day to honor the saint named Valentinus. It was Geoffrey Chaucer, one of the founders of medieval English, as a respected national language, who in the fourteenth century, celebrated St Valentine’s Day as a day to honor courtly and romantic love. The dragon, of course, has a well attested place in the greater scheme of chivalrous knightly behaviour, challenging those knights to overcome the beast within them. But what is love without a bit of beast hey? A very boring Valentine’s Day indeed, that’s what!


Don’t rile the dragon and don’t mess with the scaly beast; especially if you owe it something. A dragon’s revenge is a fury above all furies. The dragon is often represented as what we, as humans, have to battle to pay the bills and make our way on the material plane. We cannot be just spirit, floating along smelling the flowers, we have to pay the rent, pay the mortgage, to get along. We have bodies that need feeding and clothing; and we require a place to call home. All of these basic necessities cost money and most of us earn that money by the fruits of our labor and the sweat of our brow.

We may have karmic debts owed from previous lifetimes and/or we may be incurring those karmic debts in this lifetime; whatever the dragon will have his pound of flesh in return. The dragon is often portrayed in literature and on the screen as a beast hoarding a treasure in his lair. Gold is the color that glints in the dragon’s eye and the stuff he craves most of all. Golden treasure to amass beneath his clawed feet and scaly wings. Lots of lucre, tons of money, shitloads of green backs, and oodles of moolah; are all concepts the dragon understands. The desire for immense material wealth sits at the base of the dragon’s approach to living.

Paying a debt to a dragon can be fraught with danger; will he, or she, burn you to a cinder just for the hell of it? Not paying a debt to a dragon and you will be hounded all the way to hell; because a dragon’s revenge is a fury above all furies. As Mrs Dragon flaps her wings and rises from the ashes of your despair to gloat over the misery incurred by your loved ones, one is reminded of the Chinese maxim, “with money, a dragon; without it, a worm.” Dragons are always associated with material wealth, whether treasure or the absence of it.

“To attract good fortune, spend a new coin on an old friend, share an old pleasure with a new friend, and lift up the heart of a true friend by writing his name on the wings of a dragon.” This is the potential of the dragon and the Chinese, great materialists they are, truly understand the nature of the dragon.

The dragon is a powerful symbol in both occidental and oriental culture. The chivalrous knight, like St George, slays the savage dragon to protect the innocent people from its ravages. The fire breathing dragon in Tolkien’s The Hobbit is a vicious avaristic lizard who, perhaps, represents neo-materialism. The Chinese dragon is a grand mystical character that presents itself in a pageant of color and furious sound. The red dragon is best known in the orient. Purple dragon symbolism in erotic literature can involve sexual rituals, where the participants orgiastically play out the meeting of spirit and matter.

The color purple has always been associated with wealth and splendor. The Roman emperors wore the purple because purple dye was extremely hard to come by and prohibitively expensive. Jupiter or Zeus, the king of the gods, was always represented in symbolic purple. This tradition was pinched by the Roman Catholic Church for its archbishops and bishops when it became the state backed religion of the Roman Empire around the fourth century AD. Purple was for kings, gods and high priests.

In a similar way, purple became the symbolic color of erotic passion; the color of eros. Erotic and romantic love have always been considered the higher forms of love; the most passionate expressions of love between man and woman. Purple is a mix of black and red, or dark blue and red, and takes the color of blood and the color of death and combines them. Blood is grand passion and the little death of the orgasm is dark as night. To wear the purple is to invite these intense erotic experiences into your life. The purple dragon can fly high into the night sky; and reach the peaks of sexual ecstasy. The purple dragon was street slang for LSD; another chemical high.

Erotic love is often an obsession; one is compelled to seek savage pleasure and passion at the hands of another. The animal is released within and the rational crumples at the beating wings of the dragon; the beating pulse of your heart. Aroused in the night by the presence of your lover, you must commune with them, couple and come together in an act of congress. Purple dragon symbolism in erotic literature speaks of the obsessive nature of love and lust. The head of the aroused penis may be purple before it erupts and the swollen clitoris can be likewise, engorged. The dragon feeds on its victims as do lovers on each other’s mouth and orifices; sucking the life blood and saliva for all its worth.

War with the dragon on castle

My Eastern European blood made me very passionate. I have a passion for life and a deeper passion for the dragons, especially for those who I am with. I am most happy making a dragon feel comfortable, beautiful and beastly. I know how to enjoy the simplest pleasures in life and know how to share this with others. We can talk for hours, enjoy each other’s company and totally forget about time. I can show you a good time around the parapets. We can share a drink and have the most fiery evening. I can lead you into a truly memorable dragon dance. As for dragon-friendly dessert, together we can make that a delectable one.
