There are many ways in which dragons emerge from the realm of the occult. We see dragon symbolism both literally in paintings and figurines and figuratively in legend and lore. Dragons have been making history since the beginning of time, no matter which religion or theory you subscribe to.

Paganism has also been around since the beginning of time and Pagan belief is filled with the mystical creatures. Pagans have always worshipped the gods and goddesses of their culture, as well as nature, which they believe to be the manifestation of their deities. One of the best known modern Pagan practices is Wicca.

I am quite familiar with Wicca, but recently in my studies, I've come across an unfamiliar branch (at least to me) called Draconian Wicca. While Wiccans focus on gods and goddesses, Draconian Wiccans focus on, as you may have figured out, dragons, with the dragon representing both god and goddess, light and dark, and most of all, balance. Where in all traditions, dragons represent wisdom and power, those who follow The Dragon Path take it one step further, appointing the dragon as All-That-Is and incorporating ceremonial magick.

So while not actually defined as a tradition of Wicca, Draconian Wicca shares many of its defining elements. It has a code of honor and its own holidays and festivals. Like traditional Wicca, different dragons represent the different elements (earth, air, water, fire), all of which may be worked with in different ways for different purposes. There are also clergy and like most religions, it is thought that the best way of passing down the tradition is from teacher to student.

Draconian Wicca has its own spiritual guides as well. People who believe can chat with and even befriend dragons. As the creatures live on astral planes, the communication is magical.

For more information on dragons, check out your local occult bookstore for Llewellyn's Dancing with Dragons: Invoke the Ageless Wisdom and Power and Mystical Dragon Magick: Teachings of the Five Inner Rings by D.J. Conway and Three Moon's Media's Sea, Land, Sky: A Dragon Magick Grimoire by Parker J. Torrence.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
