Begin the ritual by going to the east. With your sword in your power hand (the one you write with), "draw" your magickal circle on the ground around your ritual area. Do this by pointing the sword at the floor and seeing great flames shoot out of it. Move clockwise around the circle with this flame; end by overlapping it in the east.
While drawing the circle, say:
Return to the altar. Point the sword at the dragon pentacle (a pentacle with a dragon design on or around it) and say:
Set the water chalice on the pentacle. With the wand in your power hand, circle the chalice three times clockwise with the wand and say:
Hold the chalice high, say:
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:
Sprinkle a few grains of salt to each corner of the altar. Circle the incense burner three times clockwise with the wand. Say:
Circle the incense and herbs three times clockwise with the wand and say:
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 and say:
Then carry it clockwise around the circle, beginning and ending in the east. Return it to the altar. Kneel before the altar with the sword in both hands. mentally project your interest and love of dragons as strongly as you can. Continue this for several minutes. Then rise and point the sword at the dragon pentacle and say:
Continue holding the sword outstretched until you feel the blessings of the dragons. When the flowing power of the blessing has lessened, lower the sword. Still holding the sword in your power hand, take the dragon pentacle and go to the east. Point the sword at the eastern position and hold up the dragon pentacle facing outward. Draw an invoking pentagram with the sword. (An invoking pentagram is a star drawn by starting at the top of the star, and going in a counter-clockwise motion to draw it by starting at the top and going down to the left first, then continue drawing as normal.) Say:
Feel the power of Air entering your body. When the flow stops, go to the South. Hold up the dragon pentacle again. Draw an invoking pentagram with the sword and say:
Feel the power of Fire entering your body. Go to the west. Hold the pentacle up and draw the invoking pentagram with the sword. Say:
Feel the power of Water entering your body. Go to the North. Hold up the pentacle and draw the pentagram, then say:
Feel the power of Earth entering your body. Return to the altar. lay aside the sword and dragon pentacle. Add the appropriate herbal incense to the burner.
This is also a good time to ask the dragons for any advice they might have for you. Listen and write down all that you hear.
When finished with the spellworking, tap the staff three times and chant:
Always approach dragons as equals, not as a force to be ordered or conquered. Set the wine chalice on the pentacle. Circle it three times clockwise with the wand and say:
Drink the wine (or apple juice or cider), saving some to be poured outside for the dragons later, or, if not possible, leave it on the altar for at least an hour.
Now is an excellent time to chat with dragons and use free-form dancing. invite the dragons to share in the raised energy and your joy in being a magick user. This is an opportunity for close friendships to be forged.
To close the ritual, take the sword in your power hand and go to the east. Draw a banishing pentagram with the sword. (Same as an invoking pentagram, except you start at the top and go downwards to the right side of the star). Say:
Go to the south and draw the pentagram, then say:
Go to the west and draw the pentagram. Say:
Go to the North, draw the pentagram, and say:
Return to the altar. Raise both arms; say:
Cut the circle with a backwards sweep of the sword across the boundary line. Extinguish the altar candles. Clear the altar of all tools.
