中国古代神话中最令妖邪胆战且法力无边的四大神兽是青龙、白虎、朱雀、玄武四兽。玄武亦称玄冥 ,龟蛇合体,为水神,居北海,龟长寿,玄冥成了长生不老的象征,冥间亦在北方,故为北方之神。而玄武又可通冥间问卜,因此玄武有别于其它三灵 ,被称为玄天上帝、“真武大帝”,是道教所奉之神。
真武大帝的身世,后人多说是在隋炀帝时,玉帝将自己的三魂之一,化身投胎于挣乐国皇后,出生后成为太子。
相传,古净乐国王的太子,生而威猛,越东海来游,遇天神授以宝剑,入湖北武当山修炼,经42年而功成,白日飞升,威镇北方,号玄武君。
文字源

In the ancient myths of China, four most powerful animals who had super power to bile the demon, are Kylin, the white tiger, the Phoenix and Xuanwu. Xuan wu is known as a snake and a turtle, being the god of water who lives in Beihai(北海).

The Xuanwu is the God in taoism.

《左传》:玄武在北方也。龟、蛇二虫共为玄武,故蛇是玄武之宿,虚危之星也。

龟具有极强的生命力和耐受力,是长寿的象征,而蛇是易怒、有毒的动物,受到刺激就会昂首吐信,蓄势待发,是性欲的象征。

Turtles have strong vitality and endurance, is a symbol of long live.
Snakes are poisonous animals. When they face danger, they raise their heads, being ready to attack. Snake is a symbol of sexual desire.

玄武是深邃幽渺的。用龟这种性格内敛的动物代表玄武是再适合不过的了。在中国和韩国的一些古代书籍里对于玄武的描述里,玄武的形象描述中不单单有龟,还有蛇。因为玄武还还要代表“淫”,而古时人们认为,龟是没有雄性的,要借助灵巧的蛇才能繁育后代。
譬如在东汉《周易参同契》中说:关关维鸠,在河之洲。窈窕淑女,君子好求。雄不独处,雌不独居。玄哉,玄武龟蛇蟠虬相扶,以明牝牡竟当相须,理之所在,夫复何疑。

Xuanwu is boundless deep. Tortoise, this introverted animal, stands for xuanwu. In some ancient books from China and Korea, the description of Xuanwu is a combination of snake and turtle. Because Xuanwu is also in need to present "horniness".
Ancient Chinese people believed that all turtles are female only. They must need help from snakes to breed offsprings.

玄武是欲望的平衡者,就像Steemit。

Xuanwu made the balance in desires, just like Steemit.
