There is a branch of Wicca that has been growing steadily, It is a very little known branch
called Draconic Wicca. It is the utilization of the powers of dragons. They work with these
dragons in the same way most other Wiccans work with the Gods. In doing so, they have to
deal with the unique personalities of each type of dragon. The dragons have no real hierarchy
other than age, except for the case of 'The Dragon'.
The Dragon is the combined powers of the God and the Goddess. The Dragon is invoked or
evoked during Sabbats and in times when great magic is needed. Invoking means to call into
you the power of the dragon that you name i.e. a fire dragon.

himself/herself into your spiritual body. To evoke means to call a dragon to you, to join you in
your magical workings.
In almost every culture, in almost every place, there are stories of dragons, most of them too
old to know it's origin. Dragons, the gigantic, fast, strong and wise lizards as told in myths.
Beasts so fierce that would destroy all near them. Some of them could fly, some with various
heads, some could breath fire, all being Dragons.
In Greek, draca means serpent meaning also with the same terms of the idea of great
visibility, one characteristic common in dragons was born between and within fire anddarkness... no other creature had been so powerful and wise.. that's what is known to be a
In the Babylonian myth the the first dragon was Yaldabaoth, although is also called Tiamat so
Yaldabaoth grown up and made some more like her Nagamat, Kaliyat, Orkus, Tarasque and
Serpens among others..., that was what Micael Green says, he translated from an old script.
Tiamat was a Babylonian Dragon being personification of the sea mainly(salt water), and
portrayed as the mother of all Dragons and daugther of Chaos; she appears in the creationmyth, Enuma Elish:Tiamat lived in the primordial chaos that existed before the creation of the
world. She mingled with Apsu ( a personification of fresh water), and the first generation of
gods was born.One of these gods, Enki or Ea killed Apsu.Tiamat wanted to avenge Apsu by
destroying the gods. She gathered an army of monsters and 11 Dragons.The older gods were
so terrified when they saw Tiamat, and her army, that they accepted the offer of the young
god Marduk. He offered to kill Tiamat on the condition that his supremacy was recognized.
Marduck killed Tiamat in battle and used her body to make the universe. He used the blood of
Kingu, leader of Tiamat's army and her second husband, to make mankind.
The Dragons population grew, they were so much and with so many differences among them
that they were divided into various categories.This does not mean that some were better than
others; It was a more efficient way to study them. In fact this division, was not the only one...
Some divided Dragons into 5 categories based on their location and appearance (draconis
teutonica, draconis galli, draconis albionensis, draconis bipedes, draconis cappadociae and
draconis sinoensis), some based on the elements (draco flamma, draco glacies, draco terra
among others), and some based on their colours.

In some cultures (such as Chinese) is also mentioned about celestial heaven Dragons. The
oriental Dragons, most of them from the ancient China. There are nine major types of Chinese
dragons, attributed to the nine Dragon sons that were worshiped and made into idols.
Supposedly this nice, were the sons of the four Dragon kings, Ao Shun, Ao Ch'in, Au Jun and
Ao Kuang. The nine type of horned Dragon, the winged Dragon, the celestial Dragon ( which
generates wind and rain for the benefit of mankind), the dragon of hidden treasures (whichkeeps guard over concealed wealth), the coiling Dragon ( which lives in water ), and the
yellow Dragon ( which once emerged from water and presented the legendary Emperor Fu
Shi with the elements of writing). These Dragons, share the same way of living. They are
never changed from one place, staying in their own territory.
Most of the Chinese Dragons have different lengths, some legends told about the great Chien-
Tang, witch was a red Dragon, his back was fire and his eyes shined as the sun, this wonderful
creature, from tail to head was more than 984 feet long. For the Chinese people, Dragons were
described visually as a composite of parts from nine animals: The horns of a deer; The head of
a camel; The eyes of a devil; The neck of a snake; The abdomen of a large cockle; The scales
of a carp; The claws of an eagle' The paws of a tiger; And the ears of an ox. The Chinese
word for Dragon is spelled out in roman characters as either Lung or Long. In China, the
Dragon was credited with having great powers that allowed them to make rain and to control
floods (by striking the river with its tail, causing it to open and thus divert the floodwaters)
also Dragons are credited for transportation of humans to the celestial realms after death. In
China, Dragons are symbols of the natural world, adaptability, and transformation. When two
dragons are placed together but turned away, they symbolize eternity via the famous Yin-
The Royal Court Of The Dragon was established in Egypt in 2170 B.C. under Ankhfnkhonsu,
and more formally by Queen Sobeknefru in 1783 B.C. to provide an instituation for the
pursuit of the work of the Dragon of Al-Khem otherwise known as Thoth or Hermes. From
Al-Khem we have alchemy, the Great Work of the Dragon. The most famous books attributed
to him are The Emerald Tablets and The Pymander. Part of the Emerald Tablets of Thoth
talks about reptiles, specifically shape shifters. Reptilians were/are able to shape-shift between
the forms of Humans and Dragons and so forth...Dragons, the oldest living creature, havebeen here through the human history. There had been many legends and manuscripts about
these wonderful creatures.
One of the most famous literature about Dragons is Beowulf, the medieval story of a brave
Knight and a Fire Dragon. This story of Beowulf and the Dragon was written in old English,
Beowulf survives in only one manuscript copied around 1000 A.D. This manuscript is now at
the British Library, London.

From the Christians we also got about Saint George and the Dragon. There was a town near
the are of Cappadocia, where a Dragon lived. The town people often made sacrifices of their
sheep to calm the Dragon; until the sheep ran out and by a lottery the princess of the town was
chosen to be the next sacrifice for the Dragon. George took pity on the princess fate and
slayed the Dragon. Also there are myths that the dragon which Saint George prevailed over
was none other than Dadianus. The ancient texts which related the story of Saint George'smiracles, tortue and deaths frequently call Dadianus a serpent or Dragon. Some ancient
writers then either over looked the fact that Dadianus was a man, or decided that his treatment
of St. George was so infamous that only a picture of the traditional dragon would represent
him accurately. As far as the damsel is concerned, it is believed that she represents Queen or
Princess Alexandra. She was Dadianus's wife and was also a agan until being converted to
Christianity by George.
According to Christian legend, when Jehove created life, he also created the great Dragon
Leviathan. On Doomsday, God will destroy Leviathan meaning the end of the Earth.
Leviathan seems to refer to the Draco Constellation. There is a suggestion, that the earliest
origin of the signs of the zodiac was God's instruction on the gospel in the heavens. If this is
correct, then the Dragon leviathan is again the symbol of man's pride and rebelliousness
against God. The name leviathan occurs 6 times in the Old Testament.(Psalms 74: 13-14)
The Concept of Dragons in Celtic mythology comes directly from the Holy Crocodile,
Messeh, from the ancient Egyptians. The Pharaohs were anointed with crocodile fat, and
attained the strength of Meseh. The image of Meseh evolved to become a Dragon, which
became the emblem of Kingship.( The world Messeh comes from 'Messiah' that means to
anoint ). Also Messeh, the holy crocodile, evolved into what we know as Sobek in Egypt
(crocodile god, son of Neith) and Suchos in Greek.
In the Mexican culture (just to name one) we find Quetzalcoatl, the Feathered Snake. One of
the major deities of Aztecs and Toltecs (among other middle-American civilizations). The
winged Serpent, or a Dragon that only had wings and his body covered with feathers.
Quetzalcoatl is the creator sky-god and organized the original cosmos and participated in the
creation and destruction on various world periods.
Also for the Aztecs, a symbol of death and resurrection and patron of priests. For one theory
of the fire breath of the Dragon. The brea
