“But it is one thing to read about dragons and another to meet them.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin
As someone who has been awakened by the very intense gaze of a dragon in the middle of the night, I can only concur with Ms Le Guin. Dragons are real and if you are at least bit magickal, you have a good chance of meeting one.
Some decks read quite well straight out of the box and I quickly learned that the Tarot Draconis was one of them. I wasn’t too surprised at the additional psychic info thrown in by the dragons while doing my Manic Monday FREE mini readings with the deck only hours after it arrived over at Love Dove Tarot. After all, it wasn’t my first encounter with dragons!
Not only did the Tarot Draconis deck read well straight away but it also inspired me to create a new Tarot spread a couple of days later. This is not the first deck I have owned that has inspired a new spread. I have created spreads specifically for the Psychic Tarot, the Gilded Tarot Royale and the Angel Tarot Cards in the past, to mention a few. Because of the association with Fire, I felt drawn to work with the Draconis Tarot for a third chakra issue. The Solar Plexus chakra reading I did turned out to be really helpful.

Now I shall very much look forward to hearing from the lovely, purple dragon that stepped forward as the Spirit Guardian of Tarot Draconis!
1. Describe yourself in three words or less – 9 of Swords (Mars in Gemini)TD: Analytical and calculating
Me: That sounds rather cold
TD: (snorts and huffs) Well, we’re not known as passionate creatures, are we?
Me: (I silently bow my head as a sign of respect, as well as to not get scorched and consumed with a dollop of ketchup)
2. How would your best friend describe you using only three words? – 3 of Pentacles (Mars in Capricorn)
TD: Hardworking companion, disciplined
Me: Yes, the work aspect certainly comes through here. I would expect a few Fire Element cards – instead we have the suit of Pentacles dominating. Would you care to extrapolate on that?
TD: We are the guardians of the treasures of Earth. We smite our enemies with Fire. Fire is our weapon – earthly treasures our reward. You will also notice that the first two Minors in this reading are associated with the Planet Mars (Fire).
3. What gift do you bring? – 2 of Pentacles (Jupiter in Capricorn)
TD: We empower you to advance in the material realm and sprinkle your path with dragon luck. Of course, we do charge interest!
4. What do you expect in return? – King of Swords (Gemini)TD: Objective and detached readings. We have no interest in human affairs but we have grown weary of your emotional entanglements as they interfere with our agenda.
Me: Agenda? To accumulate more treasures…?
TD: Precisely. We have come to the conclusion that rather than tricking people into doing our work, we save energy by direct communication… but you can’t really talk to someone who is in a state of affect.
Me: By ‘talking,’ I take it you mean telepathic communication?
5. How can you help me serve? – 4 of Pentacles (Sun in Capricorn)
TD: I can help you recognise and guard your own treasures. If you have a tendency to overgive, we will be more than happy to help with that – for a small fee, of course.
Me: I don’t know about that. I’m quite happy to be giving… (find myself squirming in my seat)
TD: Really? (Manages to pull off the singular raised eye brow look without having any eyebrows)
Me: OK, fair enough. I do overgive and knacker myself quite a lot. Please help.
TD: Good girl for asking nicely. The fee still applies.
6. Is there anything else you would like to tell me about yourself? – 6 of Cups
TD: By virtue of having been around for a very long time, I am an expert on past life and soul group/soul mate readings. If you ever get stuck call on me. For a…
Me: …small fee! I know, I know… I won’t forget to leave an offering when I do a relationship reading where I enlist your help!
Thank you very much for speaking with us here today, Guardian of the Tarot Draconis. I have learned much and I’m sure our readers have too!
