The Year of the Snake begins on 10th February 2013. The twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac are divided into elements - this New Year is a Water Snake. Anyone born during this sign are able to slip through trouble like water: totally fluid.

Snake Characteristics
In the West the snake is associated with danger. However, Eastern philosophy regards the snake as a symbol of good luck.

Snakes are mysterious, clever, and masters of transition and camouflage. They can sense minute vibration and taste faint chemical signals with their tongues. Likewise, those born under this sign are good at judging people and identifying opportunities.

Snake People
People born in the Year of the Snake coolly slither through problems making them good with money. They are wise, discreet, charming and romantic - but snobbish, selfish, stingy and loners. Intuition drives their strong personality.

Snakes are materialistic, stylish and concentration experts, good at goal focusing. Their strong will helps them to cunningly slip away from unpleasant situations. Be careful not to threaten a snake as they can strike out with carefully chosen words to hurt and their long memory creates lifetime grudges.

If you are a Snake
This should be a good year, but be freer with money and flippant with life. Donít be complacent, keep on top of things and expect to work at goals. You need calm and relaxation to thrive as you stress easily, so avoid chaos. Best careers are as a teacher, writer or interior designer.

Famous Snake People
Art Garfunkel, Audrey Hepburn, Bob Dylan, Brook Shields, Chris Rock, Frank Sinantra, Grace Kelly, Howard Hughes, Linda MaCathney, Liz Taylor, Mao Zedong and Oprah Winfrey.

Historically, Snake Years brought correction. The Dragon Year of 2012 was full of vigour Ė the following China zodiac beast, the snake, sheds its skin and starts afresh.

The Water Snake is particularly enquiring and money-orientated, and so will look for new ways around debt and the recession. During a Snake Year you should be thrifty, save money and plan for the future. This year of change will attract scammers Ė so be careful! Itís a good time to invest, but be wary in business deals or a new marriage.
