Well, that certainly added to the topic.

I like serpents, and I see dragons as guardians and protectors of those who are in danger such as women and children. I was born in the year of the dragon, on Lupercalia, the Roman celebration of Pan, the horned, goat legged nature god, who the layman's image of the devil is patterned after. My first name has two meanings, one of which is 'born of fire'. My western sun sign is Aquarius, and I have both Mars and Saturn in Aquarius too, which I have read adds up to lots of fire, powerful and conflicted feelings, which is not untrue in hindsight of my life so far. I question authority until I am content with my beliefs, and these beliefs are contrary to many church teachings. For example, I see the serpent in the garden as having told the truth, and having offered enlightenment, which was accepted. It is the same role that Prometheus plays in Greek myth, and anyone you ask will likely agree that the light is the good side, since light is always called the good side. Jesus is called the light of the world. And yet Lucifer means lightbringer, and the devil is called the son of the dawn, and the esoteric group called the Illuminati, the enlightened, are oddly considered evil. So I am not sure I agree with the whole good/bad light/dark thing. Maybe we are all the victims of an elaborate hoax and the dark is the good side? lol
Anyway, I like serpents, and dragons, and don't think they are evil. That was really my original point, but I got distracted.
