Ts'an-Nu, TS-*N-N8, `---'.
A stellar deity and Goddess of silkworms; She who is prayed to for the welfare and protection of mulberry trees and silkworms.
According to the legend, Her mother, in order to console Her over the loss of Her father who had been kidnapped by robbers, promised Her in marriage to anyone who would bring back Her father. Her father's horse, who had remained in his stable during the year that had elapsed, overheard the offer. Breaking free from his halter, he disappeared but soon returned with Her father on his back. However, the horse made such a nuisance of himself trying to remind the mother of her promise, that the father shot him and spread his hide out in front of the house. When Ts'an-Nu passed by, the hide rose up, enveloped Her and took off heaven-ward. Later it was found at the bottom of a mulberry tree, and Ts'an-Nu Herself had become a silk-worm feeding on its leaves. She appeared in a vision to Her parents riding the horse in the clouds, and informed Her parents She'd become a consort of the Jade Emperor.
To Whom are sacred: mulberry leaves (the food of silkworms); silkworms (in which She is immanent, i.e. according to Her legend She turned into a silk-worm); horse (in temples Her image is covered covered with a horse hide); silk; the star T'ien-ssu (as deity of the star She is considered male).
