Loch Ness Let Down

Researchers from Pictland College, Scotland discovered that Nessie is NOT a prehistoric dinosaur. This will destroy the Scottish tourism industry. Nessie is a garden-variety of English dragon, not at all unusual. (St. George did not slay all the dragons)

Dragons?

Tonight (March 9) is a Super Full Moon, a bigger than ordinary full moon. It also called the the Worm Moon–perhaps Wyrm Moon, an old word for dragon. Cherokees call it Windy Moon, Anuyi ᎠᏄᏱ, not a surprise.

A dragon just flew across the full moon! You’re on your own!

Be careful of stomping on these worms! A Lindworm is a wingless serpentine monster with 2 clawed upper arms, a dragon-like head, and scales. In Britain it is a slithering dragon, and in Scandinavia it is a sea serpent. Handle with care. Better yet, run/swim for your life.

The most famous Lindworm was Fafnir. He was a dwarf who got on the wrong person’s bad side and was changed into a Lindworm. Sigurd slayed him.

(Sorry, I could not find photos, the last is Fafnir)

I am under a druid’s curse! I must write about Lindworms!

Kukulkan “plumed serpent” is a Mayan dragon associated with Q’uq’umatz, a creator-God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quetzalcoatl “feather serpent” is an Aztec creator-God also associated with the wind and the planet Venus.

 

 

 

 

 

Uktena is a huge, horned Cherokee snake that either inhabits mountain passes or deep water. Those who gaze upon a crystal in its forehead are either paralyzed or their heart stops. Great Serpent Mound in Ohio maybe a likeness of it.

The following illustration is from Daniel Eskridge https://daniel-eskridge.pixels.com/:
