中國神獸介紹-請幫我翻成英文(20點急!!)

鎮守天官的四神

在中國古代最令妖邪膽顫心驚並且法力無邊的四大神獸

青龍、白虎、朱雀、玄武

青龍為東方之神

白虎為西方之神

朱譽為南方之神

玄武為北方之神,龜蛇合體

故有“青龍、白虎、朱雀、玄武,天之四靈

以正四方,王者制宮闕殿閣取法焉

在上古時代,古人把天分為東西南北四宮

分別以青龍(蒼龍)、白虎、朱雀、玄武(一種龜形之神)為名

實際上是把天空分為四部,以每部分中七個主要星宿連線成形,以其形狀命名

東方的角、亢、氏、房、心、尾、箕形狀如龍,所以稱東宮為青龍或蒼龍。

西方七星奎、婁、胃、昂、畢、角、參形狀如虎,稱西宮為白虎。

南方的井、鬼、柳、星、張、翼、軫聯為鳥形,稱朱雀。

北方七星斗、牛、女、虛、危、室、壁,其形如龜,稱玄武。

於是,青龍、白虎、朱雀、玄武又成為鎮守天官的四神,辟邪惡、調陰陽。

四神之中,青龍與白虎因為體相勇武,主要地被人們當作鎮邪的神靈,

其形象多出現在宮闕、殿門、城門或墓葬建築及其器物上,

在最後一種場合裏,龍已不是助墓主升天,而是鎮懾邪魔,保衛墓主的靈魂安寧。
