Snake Chinese Zodiac Sign

The next appearance of the Year of the Snake in Chinese astrology will be from February 10, 2013 to January 30, 2014 when it will be the Water Snake that is in the cycle. This sign in the Chinese philosophy is wise and intuitive rather than evil. The closest equivalent in Western astrology is that of Taurus, the Bull.

Elemental Snake

The Metal Snake:
This is a solitary Snake, who keeps to himself to safeguard his secrets and plotting. Calculating, shrewd, intelligent and ambitious, he craves luxury and power, devoting his his life to the pursuit of this with willful determnation – and anyone who gets in his way will be dealt with quickly and without mercy. Suspicious and mistrusting to the point of paranoia, this lone Snake has a close-knit circle of friends whom can also be most generous and endearing to if he chooses.

The Water Snake:
Soft-spoken and bright, the water Snake has an excellent memory (which unfortunately also enables her to hold grudges for a very, very long time), a love for the arts and a thirst for knowledge. She has a keen eye for detail, and her inquisitive mind has the patience and ability to achieve her objectives. Materialistic and charismatic, this snake is very loyal to her loved ones.

The Wood Snake:
This wise Snake has an almost prophetic understanding of human nature, and expresses it masterfully, easily attaining that he desires most – approval and admiration from those around him. He appreciates the finer things in life and will shine with a career in the fine art, music or theatre, where he can stretch his intellectual freedom to the maximum.

The Fire Snake:
This intense Snake is the sort most seen in campaign posters, or on a stage. Fire adds to this fellow’s charisma, and he has a gift for being a public figure with his confidence and natural leadership abilities. Beneath the politician’s toothy grin though is a suspicious and uncompromising personality, coupled with an almost megalomaniac-like need for power, fame and success. His ruthless perseverance does get him to the top, and once he reaches it, he will never let go.

The Earth Snake:
This more scrupulous Snake is amiable, cool, and an incredibly charming character. She has hoards of supporters and is sensible and reliable, adept at working with groups, unlike many of her sister Snakes. She refuses to be intimidated by the crowd however, and adheres to her own principles, taking her sweet time in making decisions. She knows her limits and refuses to overextend herself, and her systematic and effective work ethic will find harmony in careers such as banking and real-estate.
