The dragon, esoteric spiritual creature

The dragon is a legendary creature found in many cultures. A nimal, a kind of reptile that is generally represented with wings, claws and a serpent's tail. He is neither male nor female and his gaze fascinates like that of a snake.

The word “dragon” comes from the Indo-European taken over by the Greek drakon and the Latin draco (“ to see clearly”, “piercing gaze ”). He is a vigilant and intractable guardian.

There is a whole symbolism behind this winged animal. He is considered a monster, frightens and rules over all the elements.

But you will discover that the dragon is much more than that!

The dragon can also be a benefactor, a protector who can represent immortality.

The dragon rules over all the elements

- the earth since it is a kind of reptile, a dinosaur facing man,

- water , since dragons are born in water, in an egg (hence the name of the natural stone Septaria (in the shape of a prehistoric egg that comes to rest on the edge of the water), we called "Dragon Stone")

- the air , since it flies

- fire , since it spits flames.

In America, the so-called Quetzalcoatl dragon resembles a feathered serpent. He is the god of vegetation, earth and water: his power is reminiscent of that of Asian dragons

The dragon is the guardian of a treasure or a place

It is found in many Christian legends and in Greek mythology. He is the keeper of the Golden Fleece that Jason must kill and is found in several of the Labors of Hercules. He is the one Saint George (patron saint of knights) kills symbolizing the victory of good over evil.

Is the dragon destructive or protective?

A symbol of power , but also of danger, the dragon has diametrically opposed meanings according to Asian and Western legends.

The dragon, a destroyer

The dragon is associated with hell, the demon, vanity, pride and evil power.

In Christianity, the dragon is the symbol of evil, of the devil. It is associated with the beast of the apocalypse, it is the incarnation of Satan .

The dragon, a protector

In Japan, it is called "Ryū". Wingless and covered in scales, it has the body of a snake, the legs of a tiger, the talons of an eagle, the ears of an ox and the horns of a deer. Revered by the Japanese, this oriental dragon is one of the guardians of Buddhism, symbolizing wisdom and strength.

In Asia, the dragon represents the power of nature, of the climate; dangerous but not necessarily negative . "Long" is a wingless oriental dragon with the body of a serpent, mouth of a dromedary, paws of a lion and claws of an eagle. He is a messenger between men and gods.

In China, it is the symbol of life and power. It is one of the signs of the Chinese calendar, associated with immortality and is the object of a cult.

The dragon symbolizes mystery, magic, authority

The Celtic dragon is believed to be a magical creature that could create energy conduits while traveling on Earth. Every place where the lines intersected offered exceptional power.

A famous Chinese legend tells of the dragon chasing the pearl of immortality. The dragon hides a pearl under the folds of its goiter. This pearl symbolizes the extent of his power.

Whoever is lucky enough to recover it will know happiness, fullness and wisdom: he will have access to the knowledge of higher things.

In Eastern countries (China and Japan), the dragon represents strength of mind, physical strength and is a sign of wisdom.

In Asian countries, he is seen as a bearer of blessings, bringing health, longevity, prosperity and happiness to those who honor him.

In Psychoanalysis

The dragon encompasses within itself positive forces and self-destructive negative forces.

It is both consciousness and unconsciousness, key to knowledge and obstacle to knowledge. The dragon therefore refers to the dark side of everyone (our fears, bad instincts, selfishness, jealousy, hatred, etc.).

These bad sides can be fought with self-knowledge.
