who is Xuan Wu?

On January 25, 2013, in Feng Shui Jade, by admin


Xuan Wu is a Chinese mythological Being. Usually depicted as a Black Turtle. As a Turtle they are considered stable, they outlast others because of their endurance and longevity. Because the turtle has a thick, solid shell that serves as protection. The Turtle also stands for wisdom and divination.

Also, in Feng Shui (the Chinese myths behind choosing a house), the black turtle’s solidity is used to protect from cold northern winds.

In Neolithic prehistory the tortoise – also known as the somber warrior- and snake together are the symbols or totems of a powerful shaman who fights evil against the demons of the Invisible World

The turtle and snake together are also symbols of the seven stars of the North, called the Xuan Wu Constellation. (Known to Westerners as the Big Dipper)

Xuan Wu, also called "Zhuanxu" was said to have been born during the period of the Yellow Emperor. He was a crown prince in the country of Jing Le. Like Buddha he refused to made a king and left worldly life to study religion. Xuan Wu thereafter devoted his life to the study of Taoism and eventually became an Immortal. The Jade Emperor, one of the Supreme Deities, then made him lord over the northern heavens because Xuan Wu was the only deity strong enough to deal with dark powers inherent in the primal direction of the North.
