The Earth Dragon brings us face to face with our potential. Within us we have a treasure house of riches — of powers and capacities –which we can learn how to use. In the past we may have been denied access by the guardian of this treasure. But now we are coming to understand that this sometimes fierce guardian is in reality an aspect of ourselves. By coming to know and love Draig-talamh, we will be able to unlock the secrets of our heart, and at the same time we will find ourselves discovering the beauty and the power that lie within the hearts of those around us and in the very earth itself.
The Druid Animal Oracle ~ Philip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm
There lives a red fiery dragon, deep within us all,
when he is present, you feel your blood starting to boil.
Feel those hairs prickling on the back of your neck?
be aware that he is quick tempered,
try not to forget.
Taming that burning of power, stoked down inside
calming your emotions before they ignite.
King Arthur’s vision at Glastonbury Tor
was to protect that fiery dragon
before he began to roar.
When a rumble flinches in your tummy
see other points of view, perhaps say something funny.
Stop right there, take a moment to sit,
before the dragon triggers, sparking, hisses and spits.
Calm, cool and pacify, that volatile flame,
sense your own peace and feel relaxed again.
Pendragon was the heraldic emblem.
Guardian of passionate blazes, fuelling within.
Fire dragons guard our powerful inner prize,
attempt to befriend him, try to be nice.
this red Dragon still leads the way,
painted on our Welsh flag, unto this very day.

Fired up ~ “Red Dragon leads the way”
The Welsh motto is.
“Y Ddraig Goch Ddyry Cychwyn,” or “the Red Dragon leads the way.”
Y Ddraig Goch has roots in Arthurian legend and folklore about a
serpent representing the Welsh God Dewi. It’s said that Celtic King
Arthur had a dream about a Red Dragon, symbolizing Wales who
slayed a White Dragon, representing the Saxon invaders.
Draig-teine, Fire Dragon, is symbolic of energy, enthusiasm, courage, leadership, mastery and transmutation. He bestows, a heightened
ability to conquer obstacles and teaches people how to have energy
~ The Animal Guides of Avalon: The Dragon ~
The Dragon comes to offer you its power and strength, to protect and fortify you on this leg of your journey. The Dragon symbolizes true power and reminds you that this infinite source is not found within your personality or ego.
True power resides deep within your soul. So call on the Dragon’s spiritual power and strength, and you will find a vast resource to strengthen your resolve…through morality, integrity, and purpose. If you’re struggling with these issues, the Dragon will restore them to you. Remember that the power of the spiritual world can never be broken, and true strength is found within – not in the outside world. Never mistake a gentle man for a weak one.
Watch for a signal – the Dragon always makes the next step clear, and it gives you the power to take it.
*From The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid.
Cu or Dog, represents a Celtic Totem animal that has the powers of guidance, protection and loyalty.
the tradition of the dog as animal guide and guardian of the
mysteries in Celtic culture is very old.
It is associated with the Dog Star ~Sirius that rises and sets with the Sun. Although white to blue-white in colour, Sirius might be called a rainbow star, as it often flickers with many colours.
With a wag of their tail, they show you their hearts.
a loyal companion, a true and dear friend,
forever by our side, from beginning to end
In the Celtic tradition, a dog is held in high esteem
other wise known as our custodians, of magic and all mysteries.
Dog was an endearment given to heroes, chiefs and warriors
as in Celtic lore, “Cu” was the prefix, heralding most honour.
The dog ‘Cu’ stands at the brink of birth, death and soul
carrying his loved ones across, life’s thresholds.
as a true spirit, bodyguard and ally guiding us back home.
Gods and goddesses, from way back when,
were depicted besides their dogs as their faithful friends
protecting and guiding, beloved souls of the dead
when leaving this world, to enter the next.
As the unconscious of our dreams,
life after death, is not what it may seem.
finding our healing and immortality there,
entering our next passage, into the beyond , we must fare.

Cu brings guidance and protection, acting as a loyal companion and
friend on your journey in both this life and the next. If our
intentions are good, then Cu will lead us over the threshold
through darkness and the waters of the unconscious toward the
shimmering realm of the Goddess.~ The Druid Animal Oracle ~

Let us begin with the WOLF; as a young girl was followed in the woods. To me this fairytale seems all wrong, I believe that ‘Wolves are magical, friendly dogs’ Who has distorted and fabricated this parable of old? to make us fear, our own inner wild Wolf souls. This fairy tale story, has stuffed up, twisting true concepts; take a closer look.
A girl in a red riding cloak, gentle, pure and benevolent to other folk. Along comes an author, who demonises this story, now little girls are fearful of wolves in their glory.
Demonising the wolf, instead of a ‘man’ I am not a supporter, follower or a fan. Look deeper into those macho characteristics, you won’t have to be an academic or a mystic.
This urban myth is about a ‘man who is inspired, and willing, to fulfil his physical, lustful desires. How do you trust any chap or human? who gives cause for creating so much confusion?
