A brief explanation on Dragon Magick. There are different beliefs and paths, this is just basic information.

1. What is Dragon Magick? It is calling upon dragons to aid you and work with you on your journey. Dragons can be called upon to give more power to your spells, but more often they grant us knowledge. Dragon Magick is a rather solitary path. While one can work in a clan, Dragon Magick dives deep into ones subconscious. You must face fears and memories long buried. As such, Dragon Magick calls for a lot of self-discipline, inner strength, courage, and the ability to seek knowledge on your own. As well as, knowing when it is appropriate to ask others for help. Dragon Magick is not a religion, so many couple it with Wicca, Druid, Egyptian, and other paths. It is rather spiritual, but it does not have Gods, or holidays [normally] so many choose to incorporate Paganism in it. It is a form of high magic, so it can be dangerous. Dragon's are cautious around humans by nature, if they sense fear, or are mistreated in any way, they will lash out at the person who summoned them.

2. What are Dragons? Some believe dragons were once beings who dwelled in the physical, but humans began to slay them, and now they dwell in the astral. Occasionally, a dragon will return to the physical realm to visit, but they will be astral beings, so most will not see them. There are many types of dragons, European and Ling are most widely known, but there are also Lindworms, Wyvern, Marsupial, Amphiptere, Icedrake or Frost, Faerie, Dwarf, Hydra and many others. They come in many shapes, sizes, and colour. Some have wings or no wings, some four legs, two legs, or no legs, some breath fire, others frost, and some spit venom.

3. How Old is Dragon Magick? The belief in dragons is ancient, and many traditions in Dragon Magick date back thousands of years. However, Dragon Magick it is believed, is a concept that is fairly new, cooked up by D.J. Conway. If this is true or not, it is not important. Dragon's are ancient, as well as their strength and wisdom, and this path is very personal, full of inward gazes to build yourself up as a practitioner.

4. How do we Communicate with Dragons? There are different methods, but the two most common, and best ways, are through meditation and astral projection. With meditation, dragons come to us, and we can see them clearer. Astral projection, we are traveling to their lair, to speak with them. All dragons react differently, so use your judgement when approaching them. In meditation, dragons come to us, but we are approaching them in the astral. If they walk away, do not chase after them, unless they want you to follow, they will attack you.

5. Do I get a Dragon of my own? Sometimes. Normally, dragon practitioners have two dragons; a guardian and a guide. The guardian dragon normally comes to us while we meditate, it's a young dragon, and typically the size of a puppy or cat. They are rather energetic, and they protect the home from unwanted beings. Not all have them however, and sometimes dragons just visit ones home. Don't get discouraged if you don't have one, and don't assume a traveling dragon is yours, your guardian dragon will tell you. The Guide is an older dragon who will be your teacher on your path. They normally stay in the astral. Sometimes you may have more than one, but don't get discouraged if you don't have one the first time you meet a dragon. It takes years.

6. How Long Does it take to become a Dragon Master? There is no 'Dragon Master' and you can't really 'Master' Dragon Magick. You always strive for knowledge, and are always working to improve yourself. in most paths there are four [or five including teachers] levels. To advance from beginner can take years, decades sometimes. Certain aspects of Dragon Magick can hold people back, even scare them away. To study Dragon Magick, you must conquer your fears.

7. What are Some Milestones, or Tests, you Must complete? After dedication, there is the Riding the Dragon ceremony which scares most people off. It's not as simple as it sounds, normally a Chaos dragon, but it can also be your Guide if you've met them at this point, will take you on a spiritual journey to face all the things you wish not to. An example, if you were abused as a child, the dragon will make you relive it. You must come to terms with it, accept it, and move on. If you have yet to do so, and there is some lingering hurt from it, it will be exposed and magnified. Similar, if you have a fear of drowning, you will be plunged into water and forced to 'sink or swim' overcome your fear or be lost to it. it's an intense ritual, taking a long time to complete depending on how much you have buried, or how long you put it off. It needs to be done though. Afterwards, there will be tests, but they are revealed by your Guide. As with the Riding the Dragon Ritual, you either pass, fail and retake it, or run away forever.

Remember, Dragon Magick is not for everyone, it is not a way to become an all powerful magic user, it is a spiritual journey that will bring great wisdom and power. You cannot lord over dragons, you cannot order them around. Working as equals is the only way to work with dragons. Other facts one should know ~Dragons take things literally, so choose your wording carefully. ~Dragons love riddles and symbols, and will communicate in them. ~It takes a long time to earn a dragons trust, but you can loose it in a heartbeat. Always be honest and truthful, not just with dragons.

Wow I love this article

Mar 06, 2019
Thank you form this article, so many people will discover a lot of things with your knowledge.

Apr 17, 2019
I just started training tho I haven't went threw the 'Riding the Dragon Ritual' yet but this gives a lot of insight so thank you!!!

Apr 11, 2021
How you start the training?? I new to these thing. I am doing this for like 4 mothes only...so please tell about the training thing.

Apr 15, 2021
This might sound scary, but you just start. There aren't really human ''masters'' they ''masters'' are all Dragons. Once you know things like ''the basics'' of magick [energy work and meditation mostly] try astral projection, and once you can project, go to the Dragons and talk to them [just think about Dragons and you'll go to them] the other option is to make a Dragon altar and pray to them, but you need to be able to sense spiritual beings so you can feel their presence. Once you're in contact with them, they'll instruct you on where to go next on your path.

May 09, 2019
I love this article thank you Nekoshema, it really truly shows how draconic magick works and how dragons react to things, I just started draconic magick and I’ve been struggling with it and this really helped me understand.

May 21, 2019
I absolutely love this article. One of the best I have read, and very accurate.

Jun 16, 2019
thank you

Jun 19, 2019
what if you really wanna meet a dragon but your to anxious that they don't like you?

Jun 23, 2019
they wouldn't avoid you because of your anxiety, however, your fears might cause a subconscious block so you can't connect. it took me a long time to astrally project because i was convinced it would be freaky floating around my room while my physical form was on the bed, so when i began to float out of my body i would scare myself awake. i would work on calming your anxieties. you can still set up an altar and meditate by it [you might also wish to cast a Draconic circle to meditate in so you can connect easier to Dragon energies] you might not see a manifestation but instead sense them, smell something, or feel a shift in the room [like colder or warmer depending on the elemental Dragon] they would try and connect with you whatever way is best for you.

Jun 24, 2019
While I believe much of what you are saying I believe that I have a much deeper understanding of dragons and would like to talk to you

Jul 25, 2019
good for you. i wrote this article after a year [maybe 2 years] of study. it's an old article and only a very basic outline of questions i got a lot, as well as what i wanted to know when i first started. you can make your own article if you wish and teach further information.

Jul 09, 2019
Absolutely fascinating. Thanks for spreading the knowledge!

Jul 19, 2019
This information is well much appreciated. I wanted to know alot about dragons. I have been searching info but being part of this amazing domain, you just made it easier for me to fully understand more about the beast. Truly satisfying....

Jul 23, 2019
This article helped me a lot because I am very new to magic and only saw it in movies and stuff like that. I planned on doing dragon magic and this was an amazing source. Thanks!

Aug 28, 2019

I love dragons!!!! Finally a good dragons article!

Dec 08, 2019
It's nice to see some good information about dragon magic that isn't fluff. I know it's an old post, but it still has great insight.

Dec 10, 2019
Wow what a good article to turn to for a newbie ... I tried my best to take in your information ... Most of which I knew before even looking at this ... I want to thank you for telling me things that I also did not know ... I wish to take this path but for some reason I don't know where to start off ... I struggle a lot with meditation and could use your advise on that ... Aswell as on where to start with Draconic magic ... If you have put it in the article I apologize I might have not seen it. Thank you for the article I would really love your help.

set up an altar dedicated to Dragons, or a space specifically for them. this can help with your connection. you can leave offerings and connect with them by meditating/praying by your altar. what i did was learn how to astral project and go to them directly. the more time i spent in their presence, the better i became working with Dragons. daily meditation can help you sense/connect with Dragons.

Dec 21, 2019
So neko, what you are saying is that dragons want to help humans face their fears?

Dec 23, 2019
i suppose you could say that. it isn't simply facing your fears, it's a block that's holding you back from your potential. the path can get more intense as it progresses, and they know what you need to learn when. the Riding the Dragon ceremony is intense, but the first time it is a brief dip into your shadow, you'll need to return as you go through your path and they feel you're prepared for more.

Dec 22, 2019
Is there a way to make an altar small enough to fit into, say, a necklace? It would be very portable although I don't know if it would work. Also, can the dragons help with elemental magic at all?

Dec 22, 2019
i'm not sure of a necklace, but look up matchbox altars [they're tiny altars that fit into matchboxes] as for the elements, yes, there are elemental Dragons [their names appear to vary depending on the path] the main 5 elemental Dragons are air, fire, water, earth and chaos [chaos is rather important on the Draconic path and one i struggle to connect with] there are other types [most fall into subcategories of the main elements, such as lava Dragons would be ruled by the Fire Dragon] i've met spirit Dragons, and one metal elemental, but i have been told there are wood Dragons [no, they're not made of wood, but their scales would appear like bark similar to how most earth Dragon's i've met have an earth-toned scales that appear like rocks or mud with moss. they are also cool and damp to the touch, but idk if that's personal experience or universal. again, the astral is vast, and Dragons may take forms that you would find familiar, not universal] personally, i work with water an earth Dragons a lot. i've never had any connection with air elementals [though air is an element i've never felt particularly strong towards] it's not an animosity, more a stranger you bump into, have a nice ''hello'' and keep walking. fire Dragon's i had a bad experience with and avoid unless necessary [and their energy is always intense when i call on them] chaos is [again, personal expereince] a quiet observer, chaos Dragon's have never engaged with me. while i'v never heard a Dragon speak to me, i can communicate with them [i can get a sense of what they want by their movements and energy they give off in a situation] chaos i can' read. then again, i'm very much stuck inside the box for thinking. everything has its place, everything is linear. chaos Dragons [and by extension chaos Magick] has completely different rules. it can work in the past, present, or future to manifest your desire. it thinks outside the box in a zig-zag looping pattern i cannot grasp. my fiance works with chaos magick, and he cannot understand my way of casting.

Jan 12, 2020
so how do we get started?

Jan 26, 2020
you could set up an altar for the Dragons. [You can leave offerings to them on your altar] regular meditation [especially if you do so in front of your altar] can help with your connection to them. balancing your chakras so your energy flow is unobstructed can help you sense/hear them. you should also practice astral projection so you can speak with them directly. when you wish to first reach out, cast a circle, leave a food/drink offering, introduce yourself, explain why you wish to work with them, and ask if they're willing to work with you [there's also a guided meditation DJ Conway made that I found useful, and if you can astral project, you can speak with them directly] over the next few days/weeks, be observant and open to any signs you may receive from them. If you feel nothing after a month, take it as a no and come back later.

Jan 26, 2020
This article is amazing! Thank you so much for this knowledge.

Feb 29, 2020
._. Dragons are real? This whole time I thought dragons were dead? Dang.

Mar 01, 2020
Dragons are astral beings, so they're more like spirits. Physically they don't exist.

Mar 01, 2020
Well Written! Thank you!

Feb 09, 2021
Do u know anything about red eyes if u do tell me

Feb 12, 2021
Do you mean a red eyes black dragon? That would be a Yu-Gi-Oh card, goes for about 4$ and I've got a first edition [as well as a blue eyes white dragon. I collected pretty much all the dragon cards in the game when I was a kid] Otherwise, I'm not sure what you're talking about regarding ''red eyes'' so if you have any further information, please post and I'll see if I can help.

Mar 05, 2021
So the question is how can one communicate with the dragon as you said with meditation is there is any guidance as to how to communicate with dragons properly?

Mar 05, 2021
Communication on a spiritual level is tricky to explain. It involves not just the language you speak, but it also carries the emotion, intent, and energy of what you are wanting to share. For example, say you want to express that you want some water. In a normal interaction you might say the words in your language, and maybe mime putting a glass to your lips. On a spiritual level you would also be projecting a feeling of thirst, and the memory/idea of the taste and feel of water. So language becomes less of an issue as communication becomes more like a sharing of ideas than the use of words and language. You can use this in meditation by focusing your thoughts on a desired goal or intent instead of trying to come up with a proper 'statement' or worrying about if you need to learn some fancy ancient language. (Honestly, using magic by chanting in Latin or norse or gaelic is more for the carter's benefit than anything) Try focusing on an idea of connecting with a higher (energetic/spiritual) being who would be willing to help you reach your greatest and most positive potential. Or contemplate on the specific idea of what it would be like to be already working with a dragon. ...how would you interact? What would you talk about or ask for? What kinds of advice do you feel like you would get? You might be surprised to have a few answers start coming through.

Mar 06, 2021
Spirit76 did a better job explaining it than I could. Communicating with spiritual beings is just something I can do [been that way my entire life] so explaining how comes out muddled. How I do it, I create the environment to connect with Dragons [sit before my altar, burn specific incense or hold a little Dragon charm] then I state my intention [Dragons/Guides/deity I wish to speak with you in my meditation] then I meditate and fall into a deeper state until I feel/hear them, and then I start communicating as Spirit explained.

Mar 09, 2021
I loved it. Amazing writting

Apr 11, 2021
Hey...I wanted to ask...how to do astral projection?? I can't find something helpful right know. Ó_Ò

Apr 14, 2021
Respected Nekoshema Could You Please message Me And Give Me More Information about Magic ? Plz Message Me because I am A Beginner and I want To Become A Wizard

Apr 15, 2021
Most practitioners go with ''witch'' as it's a gender-neutral term, but it's just a title, so if you're studying magick and witchcraft, you're a witch [or wizard if you prefer] I answer questions, but I don't teach for a number of reasons. There's tons of information on this site, YouTube, and TikTok to name a few for you to learn. And you can ask for help in the sites forums.

Jul 04, 2021
Thank you for this article.

Jul 11, 2021
I hope this doesn't get taken the wrong way, but I once 3 years ago summoned a dragon spirit into an mmorpg I played, no it was not part of the game I just meditated and a wind dragon came to my aid, ever since he came my account was exteremly lucky and very powerful, I summoned him in the game because I was scared of doing it in real life, do you think I should try to summon him out?

Jul 22, 2021
Omg…it feels like a fairy tale…or a fantasy came true….does this really work … amazing article by the way !

Dec 04, 2021
Engaging the help of dragons is indeed a viable practice. Though like with any path it is a journey one chooses to undertake. As such you get out of it what you put in to it. Start with the basics (grounding, centering, meditation, etc) and use those 'entry levels techniques to put out a desire to work with dragons. Perhaps put together a small space or altar centered on/dedicated to Dragons. Then see what happens from there.

Jun 30, 2022
Very good, how do I see dragons?

Jul 01, 2022
For most, through meditation. Others through Astral travel if/when they achieve it. Otherwise, most ofthe tome the presence of a dragon near to you is felt rather than seen. It is a particular presence of energy and a sense of intuition that comes to your thoughts.

...At least by personal experience.

But then according to my wife an entity would need to run at me, screaming, in neon high heels and waving around fist-fulls of sparklers then set off dynamite in my pants before I would get so much as a prickle on the brow and a thought that -something- ethereal might be nearby.

Aug 26, 2022
Why do you know so much about this? Did you learn from someone or on your own?

Sep 01, 2022
I'm actually not 100% happy with this article. I write it after 3-4 years of practice and I've gained a lot more knowledge, but I wrote it because I was being bombarded with the same questions. You could say I'm self-taught since I don't have a human teacher. I've read a number of books, and articles, and frequented a number of websites on the subjects of Dragon's and Dragon magick as well as worked with them myself for many years [they taught me a lot] and I have a number of friends who study and work with Dragons. The starting point is pretty much the same for everyone [the riding the Dragon ritual, the dedication, so on] but after you complete the beginner stuff, it becomes rather personal because Dragons reveal information when you're ready. My Dragon mage friends have mentioned things I didn't learn until years later, and I told them stuff they didn't learn when I did. Dragon Magick has some similar rituals, but it has a lot of shadow work to it, so those aspects are personal.

Jul 10, 2023
Can you ride the dragons?

Sep 12, 2023
Yes there are times when you might earn, be offered, or ask for the privilege of riding a dragon. In fact there is a 'riding the dragon' ritual that is commonly seen as an initiatory rite in practicing Dragon magic.

The experience can be a little different from person to person, as it depends on both the person (and what they are wanting to learn) and the dragon *and what it wishes to impart). Whatever the experience, though, it tends to come across as some combination of 'test of bravery', 'test of trust', and 'shadow-working journey'.

Aug 17, 2023
Hey I have a question. I’m tired of how humanity has rejected me and ignored me. I’m looking for a partner, and since humans have never been that interesting to me, I was thinking perhaps a dragon could date me? Is that even possible?

Aug 17, 2023
Btw I swear this isn’t a joke I legitimately want to be loved by a dragon.

Aug 17, 2023
Wel... Uh... Technically? I've heard of people having romantic relationships with spirits, so it's not impossible to assume a Dragon could fall in love with a human, but the odds aren't great. [mostly because I've never heard of that occurring] Dragons can be companions and guides and you can form a deep spiritual bond with them, but a romantic relationship... It's not zero, but very very low odds. You could always reach out to astral Dragons and see if anyone wishes to work with you, or if any are interested in a romantic entanglement with a human, but if you receive no answer, please be respectful. [Depending on how long you've been practicing and how strong your psychic abilities are it might take a while to receive an answer, but if you get no signs a Dragon is reaching out after a month, take that as a no]

Sep 12, 2023
The dragons that choose to take people under their wing, like most guides, are ascended masters who come to teach and uplift. ...they are also primal and primordial beings who earned that ascension from an ouside-from-human perspective. So there are things that they see and do which come from differing moral angles (for lack of a better term). That paired with the sheer individuality of the perspectives one dragon might carry over others and the response for something like this can be ... unpredictable. But not outside the realm of possibility.

I think the core of whether you might (or might not) be able to form such a connection lies in a couple subtle but important factors;

- What sort of connection, specifically, are you looking for. Lust, love, learning... healing? Begin with Self examination to understand what you are actually hoping to gain, as the dragon who hears you will be evaluating the same.

-how do you feel that such a relationship (or event) would help you grow as a person. Intimacy, like so many other things, can indeed be a powerful tool to gain experience in things like compassion, selflessness, sharing of energy and upliftment, and even connection with the proverbial divine/universal energies. But for it to be such a tool, it needs to have that purpose. Would it be effective/purposeful towards your growth? Or would it be a distraction from it? This too a Dragon would Guage.

If it has a purpose; be it learning, growth, or healing, I can't see why an enlightened and aware being, especially one oft-linked with the base primordial nature of existence, would feel wary of it.

Dragons can be very blunt and practical about things. They are also brutally honest and expect that from those they work with. Particularly honesty with yourself. So whatever response or connection you find, be true to it as true to yourself. That is all you need do.

Nov 10, 2023
Two decades ago I had the first contact with Dragons ... Weeks ago they took me to a place in the mountains ... pure magic! Thanks for the article and all coments, you are, all of you, just wonderful!!! Blessings ~----~

Nov 15, 2023
What did you do to speak with them? How did they speak with you?

Nov 15, 2023
Can anyone share their first experience with dragon?

Nov 15, 2023
This might be a question better suited to the forums as I imagine some stories could get long. ... especially for people like me who tend to be rather long-winded at the best of times.

Maybe I can manage a short version.

My first encounter with a dragon was when my guide, which I had been trying to connect with gor a year (almost to the day), got tired of my complete lack of observational skills. I was dreaming that I was getting ready for my day, and while brushing my teeth he charged full-tilt up against the inside of the bathroom mirror. The shock sent me falling backwards, then immediately sitting bolt upright in bed as I woke up from the dream. When my heart finally stopped pounding, and I finally clued in, a more proper introduction finally took place. He's been around, and as impish as ever, from that day on.

Dec 04, 2023
My first experience with Dragons was through a guided meditation. Most were calm, mostly observed. I introduced myself, explained why I wished to work with them and asked if I could. The Water and Earth Dragons welcomed me [they didn't speak, but they circled me and I got a sense they were fine with me] the Air Dragon nodded, but didn't approach. The Chaos Dragon just stared at me and the Fire Dragon... Was less than impressed with me. I worked with the Earth and Air Dragons, as well as my guardian, but the Fire Dragon really didn't like me. After all these years, I work with my guardian and guide, not so much the elementals as I did initially. [Energetically, they can be intimidating at first, and I'd recommend treating them with respect]
