Rosefinch is a sacred beast representing the south. It is a red bird. Among the twenty-eight constellations in China, it is composed of seven constellations in the South: Well, ghost, willow, star, Zhang, Yi and Yun. It is connected in the form of a bird, also known as Xuanniao. Zhu is red, and the South belongs to fire, so it is called Zhuque. The guidance of rosefinch can be seen from the “flying rosefinch makes a pioneer and drives the image of Taiyi” in the “songs of Chu”. The “saying oneself absorbs the vitality of the sky and gets the truth, that is, the rosefinch divine bird is my guide” in the supplementary notes to the songs of Chu also reflects the ability of rosefinch to help people become immortals.
