Western Dragon Lore / Dragon Symbolism
When most people think 'Dragon' they most
likely think of the Western dragon. Western dragons are usually portrayed
as evil, mean, and bloodthirsty. They were also known to have huge
hoards of gold and jewels hidden in their lairs. The most famous dragons
are portrayed as Western-type dragons: St. George and the Dragon,
Beowulf and the Dragon, and Draco
in the movie Dragon Heart. Some stories have the western dragon as
the Devil. Other stories in legend say that eating
a dragons' heart will give the consumer the power of understanding
birds, eating the dragons' tongue enables the person to win any argument,
and rubbing the dragons' blood on skin will protect against stab wounds.
Another myth references Vlad Drakul to mean Son of the Dragon, or
Devil. The end of the dragon came with Christianity
and knights that were eager to prove their faith. The knights quickly
discovered that dragon-hunting was very profitable, and soon most
the dragons in the world were destroyed in a very short time. Vikings
had dragon figureheads on the prow of their ships. The dragons on
the ships were believed to endow keen site and cunning to the Viking
warriors. Today the Welsh flag still has a red dragon on a green/white
background, and the red dragon is their national symbol.
dates back thousands of years to pre-Babylonian Sumer (~3500 BCE).
Many religions have once used this symbol ... the Jewish people saw
it as a symbol of the Five Books of Moses, and Christians once used
it as a protective amulet. It has been called such things as the Druid's
Foot and the Witches' Star. The Pentacle is simply a pentagram (star
) with a circle around
it. It emphasizes the inter-connectivity of all of the elements. The direct and indirect
relation of one element to the other. Traditionally, each of the five angles has been attributed to the
five metaphysical elements of the ancients:
EARTH: (lower left hand corner) represents
stability and physical endurance.
FIRE: (lower right hand corner) represents courage and daring.
WATER: (upper right hand corner) represents emotions and intuition.
AIR: (upper left hand corner) represents intelligence and the arts.
SPIRIT: (at the topmost point) represents the All and the Divine.
