I have been practicing Magick for about 6 months now.
I study the dark arts, Dragon Magick and incantations for all of said time.
With a focus on Dragon.
However I would go as far as to say that Dragon Magic is the most convoluted in fiction.
Therefore I have had some trouble finding accurate text on the subject.
Any help in any for would be greatly appreciated
I have a very strong connection to Dragons, one in particular.
Unfortunately if you are getting any of your info off the net, it will be majorly based on fiction concepts. Even some of the books out there on the topic are this way. My husband practiced dragon magick for years. He always said the best stuff to understand dragons is from old legends and mythology. Oberon Zell-Ravenheart Ravenheart has a good book on dragons and DJ Conway has some books on dragon magick but her books are a little fictional sounding but they are a good start.
DJ Conway is a laughing stock to most people. I haven't read her book on dragon magic, but her book, Norse Magic, is largely regarded as frivolous and misleading in most communities of Norse Pagans.
The first thing to learn about "Dragon Magic" is that it's not a traditional faith or practice - it's often times a personal path that resonates with certain people and pulls from various sources associated with dragons. If you are practicing to that end, at least take the time to learn what each "dragon" (quotations because most associated dragons are actually translated as serpents or wyrms) was like and what they were involved with and what they were about in their original contexts.

dragonfeather's good, she did an interview with Lunar Wisdom which has a couple videos on the subject:
really it's a challenge since we keep so much secret. it's not because we're greedy or unhelpful, it's just a common held practice to not give information to those who haven't proven themselves trustworthy. so you might be able to find a 'where to start' explanation, but the majority is personal as your learn with Dragons. it can be frustrating and scary, but you kind of find your own groove and your path becomes a lot deeper. [my matron Goddess is someone who has almost zero historical evidence about her, so i'm use to my path being a trial and error type of thing] if you're coming from a sincere place you shouldn't have a problem. dragons are leery but they can tell when you want to learn and when you just want a dragon cuz it's kewl and you can use it to your advantage. i say this a lot, but Dragon Magick is far more spiritual in nature than spell casting.
Do yourself a favor and get D.j. Conway's books on dragon magic. Funny how she gets a bad wrap But not from the other authors themselves.She is friends with Raymond Buckland and Raven Grimassi. They would not dirty their good names with an author who publishes nonsense. Who else besides her and Oberon Zell have written books, so Its not like a lot of people have personal experience with Dragons. She has also won many awards.
I have both of dragon magic books. I highly recommend them. The second one is a working program. But you need the first the first for the second.Good luck.

Having read Conway's books, I would say stay away. I would also stay away from Buckland personally, his books are full of lies and misinformation. Grimassi has also pulished some rubbish, but has some redeeming works to his name.
The issue with dragon magic is that it is a new path, it is an eclectic path which utilisises techniques and traditions of other paths. If any author is selling that dragons are all beautiful, benevolent creatures, stay away. With the exception of some Asian mythologies, dragons are not benevolent and are even said to despise humans. They are wise tricksters, of course some of us, including myself, find the misunderstood fascinating.
My advice is to research myths surrounding dragons, and simply use the standard theories of evocation and invocation tailored to your needs through the information which myths give. That is, see what offerings dragons would like, see what services they can perform, what they mean spiritually to you. These sorts of paths are largely individual, and it should be your own technique you use. Not Conway's fictional dragon language nonsense, but actual, legitimate craft.
