Draconic Magick

Draconic Magick
 The Study Of Dragon Magick.

What is Dragon Magick? 
Dragon Magick could be defined as using the aid of a Dragon while working magick.  The power of Dragons can be a great influence not only in one's magickal working, but in day to day life as well.

Dragons are often called on as guardian spirits. They make for exceptional allies who can be called on in times of need, for protection or guidance. Dragon Magick, like all magick is made up in its base form from the five main elements that exist throughout the known universe, Fire, Wind, Earth, Air and Spirit. When using Dragon Magick you are in fact calling forth an element in its Dragon form. Each element and its Dragon has certain magickal qualities, moods and purpose. Each also has positive and negative traits which much be dealt with. Male and female dragons may appear to represent any element, however, Fire and Air are positive energies while Water and Earth are negative energies. It is a form of magic reaching the essence, the wisdom of the Dragons. It is a branch of magic, a specialization. Dragon magic it is said, is one of the oldest magical workings in the world. 

What is a Dragon Guide?
A Dragon guide is a  form of spirit guide. What is a spirit guide? The Indians have long found a connection within nature, a guardian that follows them through life, once found to remain by their side. There are many different forms of guidance people reach for. Some people follow Jesus or God, various ancient Gods and Goddesses, Celtic, Egyptian, Norse, Roman. Others reach to Fairies or Angels, Dolphins so why not Dragons?. Tarot, Runes, Crystal Balls, even the Bible, all these are used for the purpose of reaching what most believe is a higher being, a force of ascendance. At some point in their lives most people, even if they do not admit it, look beyond into the mists of spirituality for help, advice or guidance in whatever form they believe in. 
In no way is Dragon magic easy or simple. It requires great inner strength and immense patience to walk the path of the Dragon. They are part of the energy found all around us. You may never see them but you may, eventually, feel their presence. This will take time and much practice. A Dragon befriends only to those who are deemed to be worthy and will only show themselves if they are sure that they can trust you.. Dragons are long-lived and with age comes wisdom and patience. Dragons are creatures of wisdom and knowledge, and provided great protection and can lend great power when needed. If you take the time to forge a friendship with Dragons they can become the best companions you would ever want.
Connecting With Dragons
Be aware though that not everyone is supposed to work Dragon Magic. Before you consider working with dragons, take some time to look at yourself. Do you like dragons for who they are, or are you just interested in power? Think carefully of why you want to seek out the Dragons.
To reach a Dragon, first you need to set aside the science and believe in your heart and mind that the essence of Dragons is out there, we just have to learn to reach it, connect with it. If you do not really believe in something, can you really connect with it, or even, why try?
Once you embarked upon this magical path, you find yourself changing, adapting to their thoughts and ways, learning to see things in a new light through new eyes. The relationship of the seeker to the Dragons is similar to that of teacher and student. They teach and strengthen you so you may wield greater power with greater wisdom. They are vast and timeless, wise beyond our imagination and wildest dreams. We have to learn to listen to learn. Be wary though with what work you want to do with them, Dragons will not work with silly things like love spells or anything of the sort, Dragons prefer to work with Protection and Healing Magic.

To Attract A Dragon Companion

You cannot force a dragon to befriend you, nor can you chose what your companion will look like or what their personality will be. All you can really do is invite dragons into your life and make them feel welcome. The dragons chose who they work with rather than the other way around. If you have been interested in dragons for a while and have collected some dragon images, toys, statues etc, there is a chance that there is already a dragon or two hanging around your room or house.

Inviting a Dragon Companion

Choose a time when you will not be disturbed, disconnect the phone, if possible disconnect the doorbell. Being interrupted during any ritual is really annoying and can cause for energy to be lost.

Sit on the floor and imagine and stress or worry flowing out of you and through the floor (or into the ground if you are doing this outside). Once you feel that it has all drained out of your body, imagine a protective bubble forming around you. One of the easiest ways to do this is to imagine a small bubble just in front of your chest then let it expand to surround you. You might not be able to see this bubble, especially if its the first time of using it, but know that it is there protecting you.

The next step is to invite a dragon to be your companion. Mentally project the desire to contact and make friends with a dragon. Be confident but don’t shout your intention. Then either in your mind or out loud say this, or something similar, “I am (name), I walk the path of dragons. In love, trust, and friendship I invite you into my life and into my home.” Add anything else you wish to say and keep projecting welcoming thoughts.

Don’t expect to feel a companion right away, it can take quite a while before they feel you are ready for them. Sit for a while longer incase they do wish to make their presence known. If you wish to keep the protective bubble around you imagine new energy flowing though it and the old energy going back into the ground. Then you can slowly get up and carry on as normal. You can repeat this ritual as you like until you feel the dragons are in your life.

Summon A Dragon

Items you will need

2 black candles
2 other candles (colour of element e.g. fire-red)

Casting Instructions for ' Summon A Dragon'

Warning: You MUST cast at least one form of protective magic before you do this spell. It is extremely dangerous as it opens a beast gate (A gate to a dimension full of all the beasts you can imagine and more)

1: Place the black candles at north and south
2: Place the element colour candles at eats and west
Sit in the middle of the candle range.
Concentrate on locked gates. Imagine a key in your hand and chant:
''I have the key, I have the power,
The gates shall open at the (seventh) hour,
A dragon shall rise, and be my friend,
We shall both live until the end''

Seventh is in brackets because it is changeable.
This is just when you want your dragon to come through.
That is the time when you need the protection. This is also an immortality spell.

No harm to come or ill to befall,

Guarded and safe through it all!

Call for The Blessings of the Dragons
Set up your altar so that it faces east. Make sure that it is known that you are not to be disturbed once your circle is cast.
Go to the east of your magickal space, and with your sword in your power hand, "draw" your magickal circle on the floor around the ritual area. To do this, point the sword at the floor and visualize great flames shooting from it. Move clockwise around the circle with this flame; end it by overlapping the ends of the circle in the east. While you draw this circle, say : By dragon power, this circle is sealed.
Return to the altar. Point the sword at the dragon pentacle and say :
Dragons of Spirit, highest of dragons and most powerful, bless this altar with your fire. Let us be one in magick, O dragons great and wise.
Set the water chalice on the pentacle. With the wand in your power hand, circle the chalice 3 times clockwise with the wand and say :
Air, Fire, Earth, bring power forth. Water of land and sea, purified be.
Hold the chalice up, and say :
Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!
Sprinkle the water from the chalice lightly around the Circle, beginning and ending in the east.
Set the dish of salt on the pentacle. Circle it three times clockwise with the wand and say :
Water, Air, Fire, hear my desire. Salt of Earth and sea, purified be.
Sprinkle a few grains of salt to each corner of the altar. Circle the incense burner three times with the wand, and say:
Fire of dragons, fire of Earth,
You are purified. Bring power forth.
Circle the incense and herbs three times clockwise with the wand. Say :
Incense magickal, incense bold, Awake the dragons, as of old. I call you purified.
Put a small amount of incense onto the burning coals in the incense burner. Lift the burner by the chains and touch it lightly to the pentacle. Lift it high over the altar, and say : Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!
Then carry the incense burner clockwise around the Circle, beginning and ending in the east. Return it to the altar.
Kneel before the altar with the sword held in both hands. Mentally dedicate yourself to the study of dragon magick. Project your interest and love of dragons as strongly as you can. Continue this for several minutes. Then rise, point the sword at the dragon pentacle, and say :
Behold, all dragons and rulers of dragons, I am (magickal name), a magician who seeks dragon magick. With (name of sword) in my hand, I enter the realms of the dragons, Not for physical battle, but for knowledge and power. I greet you, O dragons ancient and wise, And await your blessing and guidance.
Continue holding the sword outstretched until you feel the blessings of the dragons.
When the power of the blessing has lessened, lower the sword. Still holding the sword in your power hand, take the dragon pentacle in your other hand 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. Say :
From Sairys, ruler of the eastern dragons fair, Comes now the wondrous power of Air.
Feel the power of Air entering your body. When the flow stops, go to the south. Hold up the pentacle again. Draw an invoking pentagram with the sword and say :
From Fafnir, ruler of dragons of the south, Comes cleansing Fire from dragon mouth.
Feel the power of Fire entering your body. When the flow of power stops, go to the west. Again hold up the pentacle, and draw an invoking pentagram with the sword. Say :
From Naelyan, ruler of dragons of the west, Comes the power of Water, three times blest.
Draw into yourself the power of Water. Go to the north. Hold up the pentacle, and draw an invoking pentagram with the sword. Say :
From Grael, ruler of dragons of the north, The power of Earth does now come forth.
Draw into yourself the power of Earth. Return to the altar. Set aside the sword and dragon pentacle. Add the herbal incense to the incense burner.
(At this point in your ritual, insert the proper chants and workings for the particular spellworking or meditation that you have chosen.)
If you have a problem that you have not been able to solve by physical means or by magick, you may ask the dragons at this time for advice. They will be able to give you new insight into ways of solving it. Continue to feel their power and direction as you write down the instructions.
When finished with the spellworking, tap the staff three times and chant :
I thank you, dragons old and wise, Of Earth and Fire, Water, Skies, For sharing wisdom here with me. As we will, so shall it be.
Always approach dragons as equals, not as a force to be ordered around or conquered.
Set the wine chalice on the pentacle. Circle it three times clockwise with the wand, and say : Cup of power, cup of might, Dragon magick, be here this night.
Drink the wine (or juice, if you wish to substitute), saving some to be poured outside on the ground later as an offering to the dragons. (If it is not possible to pour the offering outside, leave it on the altar for an hour or so.)
Now is an excellent time to chant and use free-form dancing. Invite the dragons to share in the raised energy and your joy of being a magician. Talk to them about your hopes and dreams. And listen to see if they have suggestions or words of encouragement for you. This is an opportunity for close friendships to be formed.
To close the ritual, take the sword and go to the east. Draw a banishing pentagram
with the sword, and say : Go in peace, dragons of the East. And return again in the ritual hour.
Go to the south, draw a banishing pentagram with the sword, and say : Go in peace, dragons of the South. And return again in the ritual hour.
Go to the west, draw a banishing pentagram with the sword, and say : Go in peace, dragons of the West. And return again in the ritual hour.
Finish by going to the north. Draw a banishing pentagram with the sword, and say : Go in peace, dragons of the North. And return again at the ritual hour.
Return to the altar. Raise both arms and say :
Farewell to you, O dragons fair,
Fire, Water, Earth, and Air.
Together we make magick well
By power deep and dragon spell.
In peace go now. Return once more
To teach me magick and ancient lore.
Draconis! Draconis! Draconis!
Cut the Circle with a backward sweep of the sword across the boundary line. Extinguish the altar candles, and clear the altar of all tools.
