    There are good and bad dragons. In the Orient, the dragon symbolizes supernatural power, wisdom, knowledge and strength.

    However because it is a snake the dragon is a symbol of evil, in both the chivalric and Christian traditions.

    In most traditions, it is the embodiment of chaos and untamed nature. In barbaric traditions such as in the west they often kill dragons.

    It can also represent "order" in the form of "tyranny," hence the term "draconian." This is in keeping with the "power" aspect. Chaos is good because it sets us free. Order is evil because it oppresses us. Keep in mind, this is coming from a Lawful Good Sage.

    Draconian comes from Draco's code as per Merriam Webster dictionary:

    Draco was a legislator in Greece (7th century BCE):

    Kundalini

    Primal, sexual, energy. Your lifeforce. The 'fire' in your life. The energy of creation.

    Of course Western religions wanted nothing to do with this (Sex/lust? Empowerment? Power of creation? HECK NO!) thus they say one should 'slay the dragon' like Saint Michael does.
