Dragons of Myth and Legend

Although dragons occur in many legends around the world, different cultures have varying stories about monsters that have been grouped together under the dragon label. Some dragons are said to breathe fire or to be poisonous. They are commonly portrayed as serpentine or reptilian, hatching from eggs and possessing typically scaly or feathered bodies. They are sometimes portrayed as having especially large eyes or watching treasure very diligently, a feature that is the origin of the word dragon (Greek drakein meaning “to see clearly”). Some myths portray them with a row of dorsal spines. European dragons are more often winged, while Oriental versions of the dragon resemble large snakes. Dragons can have a variable number of legs: none, two, four, or more when it comes to early European literature. (from Wikipedia)

Perhaps dragons did once exist in the physical form and roamed the Earth, giving rise to the various myths and legends that surround them, but now they have passed into the spiritual or astral realm and can only be sensed on an energetic or psychic level.

This section gives examples of some of the many different physical forms they may have taken, with information being added here as time permits…
