Dragons are seen as a symbol of ancient powers, intelligence, ferocity, elemental magick, extra power, protection, instruction in the spiritual. There is a form of dragon in all cultures. The dragon seems to encompass all of the elements, they fly (air), they breathe fire (fire), swim (water), live in caves (earth) and are highly magickal (spirit). Some cultures consider gold to be “earthblood” and that is why the dragon is the guardian of the gold to stop it being stolen from greedy men. Dragons are associated with breathing fire or spitting poisons. A dragons horn was seen as not only a powerful aphrodisiac but as anti venom of all poisons, taking the concept of sympathetic magick.
