Lord Xuan Wu (also called The Dark Lord
of the North or The Lord of True Martiality) is one of the most
widely revered Chinese deities, ranking in popularity behind only
Guan Yin and Kwan Kung. The God is always depicted holding a magical
sword, which he borrowed from one of the 8-Immortals named Lu
Dong-Pin. Legend says that He borrowed the magical sword to beat
off a powerful devil, and after he was successful, he refused
to return the sword back to Lu Dong-Pin. If his palm opens, then
his sword will automatically fly back to Lu Dong-Pin. Therefore
he always hold this sword tightly, not willing to let it go. Lord
Xuan Wu is also always depicted with a tortoise and a snake, beneath
his feet. He is revered as a powerful God, able to control the
elements (worshipped by those wishing to avoid fires), and capable
of great magic. He is particularly revered by martial artists,
and is the 'patron saint' of Wudang Mountain in China's Hubei
Province, where he attained immortality.
The Xuan Wu deity has powerful control
over five elements therefore can help to remedy a lot of problems
caused by it in feng shui. For example, if one is living in a
Period 7 house can display his figurine in the living room to
reduce the bad implications caused by the Violent Star #7. This
will not only prevent floods and fires, malefactors, lawsuits,
robberies and theft, but will also usher in prosperity and career
luck. Those who wants to reduce the fire hazards can also display
his figurine in the living room or in the director's office. Also
this deity is particular important to those in the tourism, fishery
and transport industries.
