Dragony Mythology
Post # 1

Hello everyone i thought i would make a post about some forms of dragon mythology. I am really really interested in dragon magick and mythology. I also provided sources that used that you could look in to.

A dragon is a mythical creature typically depicted as a gigantic and powerful serpent or other reptile with magical or spiritual qualities. Most dragons are either European dragons, derived from various European folk traditions, or unrelated Oriental dragons, derived from the Chinese dragon (lng).

Like most mythological creatures, dragons are perceived in different ways by different cultures. Dragons are sometimes said to breathe and spit fire or poison as well as many other elements. They are commonly portrayed as serpentine or reptilian, hatching from eggs and possessing typically feathered or scaly bodies. They are sometimes portrayed as having large yellow or red eyes, a feature that is the origin for the word for dragon in many cultures. They are sometimes portrayed with a row of dorsal spines, keeled scales, or leathery bat-like wings. Winged dragons are usually portrayed only in European dragons while Oriental versions of the dragon resemble large snakes. Dragons can have a variable number of legs: none, two, four, or more when it comes to early European literature. Modern depictions of dragons tend to be larger than their original representations, which were often smaller than humans.

Although dragons occur in many legends around the world, different cultures have varying stories about monsters that have been grouped together under the dragon label.

Dragons are often held to have major spiritual significance in various religions and cultures around the world. In many East Asian cultures dragons were, and in some cultures still are, revered as representative of the primal forces of nature, religion and the universe. They are associated with wisdomoften said to be wiser than humansand longevity. They are commonly said to possess some form of magic or other supernatural power, and are often associated with wells, rain, and rivers. In some cultures, they are also said to be capable of human speech.



I don't have much information from online. Its hard to find good sources online. Unless someone can think of ebooks or other sources to use when i make my post. I will be posting more on dragons since i am really into them right now. I hope i can find good books to read about them too. its really hard to find good information on them.

Blessed Be

your information is half accurate. dragons are not just found in Europe and Asia, they're all over the world, the most common are European and Ling/Lung dragons. my personal favourite is a rare Marsupial dragon that dwell only in the blue mountains of Australia [so the myth goes] they don't really breath fire, but do produce blue smoke. they don't fly either.

while not all dragons fly, not all have scales, some have feathers, like the Amphithere of the America's, it has no legs [as you mentioned] but has two bird like wings and feathers around it's head and on it's tail.

typically European dragons breath fire. many breeds do but the one that typically keen to attack that way is the European. Frost dragons of Greenland have ice breath, Asian breeds don't breath anything if memory serves. There's a breed found in Europe called the Lindworm that has two from legs, no wings, and spits poison.

they come in many shapes, sizes and are found in all areas with different lifespans depending on the species. this all being said, dragons do not dwell in the physical anymore, a theory many dragon practitioners i've met believe, as do i, when the dragons began to be hunted by people, they left to the astral plain, they are now astral beings, so while one many come back here, it'll be the same as a ghost, it won't be a giant physical dragon. but they don't typically come back here, they're safe and happy in the astral. you might want to look around some more, and not take wikipedia or any other site that can be edited by the public as 100% factual. good luck in your studies, blessed be.

dragons love riddles and mental puzzles. few dragons actually speak, wise old dragons can, and certain species, typically the Ling, can speak. it is believe language [written if memory serves] in China was a gift from a golden Ling dragon.

yes I've Dragonolgy by Ernest Drake when i was about 15, but i don't hold a lot of the books in the series in high regard and would source it on a list of credible books. I've looked into Dr. Drake, because ever since i first got the book the name of 'Drake' being an expert Dragonologist raised a flag. in my research it's divided, but about 60% of people say he's a real person, and there's a couple documents here and there to prove he's real, but not much. so i still wouldn't count it as more than a very accurate child's book. the first one would probably be the one i'd let slip by the second maybe.

my research, though, isn't just based off a book by an author who may or may not be real and therefore this book is most likely childhood fiction. i've come across a few books on dragonology, on dragon magic, and on mythological beings with long articles on different dragons. on top of that i've read MANY websites, some credible, some not, and have projected and dealt with dragons myself on the astral plain. if treated with respect, and you don't mean any harm, they won't attack you unless they're in a bad mood, i've only had one encounter of that nature, but it was through my own stupidity.

the dragons i've had to deal with don't tend to speak, but i'm not amazing at projecting, and i tend to wander around, so i don't know if it's they can't or just don't want to, so i haven't tried asking them any riddles yet. so keep a couple good ones in mind just in case.

As a young child I had 2 "imaginary" friends who I called Tince and Wince. They were
a brother and sister dragon pair. Tince was a silver and gold dragon with blue eyes, I called her Tince because her scales shone like tinsel on a Christmas tree. Her brother, Wince, was far shier than she, though he was wiser. He always seemed to jump at movements and sounds that were sudden. He had a dark-green, light-green variation of scales and green-blue eyes.
Eventually they stopped visiting me during the day, and began visiting me in dreams. In one of these most recent dreams, I noticed something new... although I understood them quite clearly, they weren't speaking English. I looked on the internet and found that they were speaking a language known as draconian or draconic. I read a script in draconic and found myself to be fluent in this new language.
I want to ask them about it next time they visit.
