~”There were dragons when I was a boy…”
(How To Train Your Dragon, Cressida Cowell)

I feel like I have been bathing in the Dragon Energy for quiet some time now.

The Chinese horoscope animal is the Pig this year, but not in my house.

This year we came full circle with dragons…

Dragons have been a part of so many folk stories around the world. From China, India, Europe… But where are they now?

Rule of the Dragons…

Animals, Thom


This Summer was definitely under the Rule of Dragons.

“Coming in contact with the air dragon can be as a bolt of lightning to the psyche and intellect – and as such must be treated with care and considerable respect. Sometimes manifesting as sudden flashes of illumination, Draig-athar brings insight and clarity to your thought and imagination. As conveyer of numinous power, the air dragon can be seen as a symbol of visitation – for he is a messenger of the Sky God.” 

– Philip & Stephanie Carr-Gomm, The Druid Animal Oracle working with the sacred animals of the druid tradition.

Here, we watched the films, read the books, talked in great length about dragons and drew a lot of pictures of them.

May he or she be Smaug, Toothless, Horrorcow, an invisible Stealth Dragon, Stormfly, or any other Deadly Nadder… Dragons were very much a part of our world this Summer…
