The Snake signs, quite simply, leads a charmed life. Diplomatic and popular, the serpentine ones are lucky with money and will generally have more than they need. Even if money isn't their greatest pursuit, they will always have more than enough to survive. The charming and generous qualities of these Snakes will allow them to attract many potential mates. The seductive snake has many fans, they're so irresistible -- slightly dangerous and disarmingly smart. They are decisive and active, stimulated by thoughtful debate and interesting conversation, although if the conversation becomes repetitive their attention soon wanders. It is unlikely that they will tolerate idle chatter for long, preferring instead to focus on new ideas and intelligent discussion. When they find a particular topic stimulating, they often make unusual and challenging contributions. They're also one of the more philosophical signs. That dreamlike quality means that logic doesn't always enter into their thought process, preferring as they do to use instinct when making decisions. Snakes give little credence to the opinions of others, relying instead on their own gut feelings and intuition.

Despite their natural physical ability and lively personalities, Snakes have a tendency to be insecure, something which can manifest itself as jealousy and possessiveness. This behaviour often ends up alienating the ones they love, when a bit of vulnerability would have yielded better results. Snakes can often be quite tight with money, yet they'll find a way to help any friends or family in need, if only to secure their love. The slippery Snake is also prone to exaggeration, yet these tales are told for the sake of comfort, especially in social situations. Snakes simply cannot stand to be the odd man out, and will fight to win back those who have abandoned them.

Snakes can be so unsure of themselves that perceived slights can escalate into full-blown war. They'll also do whatever it takes to be the centre of attention. Snakes detest those without the strength to see things through to the end or an inability to get things done. They know how to get on with things themselves and want the same from others.

Snakes are a good judge of situations and are alert to new possibilities, so when they have an idea they pursue it persistently and energetically. They are often so confident of its success that they fail to listen to constructive advice, but what really disturbs they is the thought of actually being proved wrong. Although they do not easily take advice they are patient with others when they need their help, and their ability to look at a problem from a variety of angles is appreciated. When faced with a dilemma they are cool and reserved, and it is this clarity of vision that enables they to act decisively. They act with speed and conviction when they are committed to a task, since they believe intensely in what they are doing and rarely waste time or energy on projects lacking in good potential. 

However, their life is not all work and competition, and when the opportunity arises they know how to wind down and relax. They can only keep up their energetic approach for so long before they find a means of escape and withdraw into a more private world to pursue their hobbies and enjoy life's luxuries. They make trusting and long -term friendships and are a protective and caring friend. their anger, however, can be quickly aroused, and they will soon retaliate if they think someone has taken advantage of their trust or hurt those close to they. 

An important lesson for Snakes is to learn humility, along with a sense of self. That tendency to exaggerate, along with a need to do it all, can get pretty old. Once Snakes realize that confidence comes from within, they'll finally be comfortable in their own skin.

The most compatible match for a Snake is the Rooster or Ox.






Snake signs can read complex situations quickly and then set about resolving them in a quiet, controlled manner. They enjoy working independently since it gives they the freedom to travel and negotiate on their own terms, as well as allowing they to avoid the possibility of their ideas being limited or even taken over by others. They are a logical and organized worker and have the patience needed to acquire new skills. Many people born in the Year of the Snake are also gifted with a good memory that enables them to carry out projects thoroughly.

Snake signs are also courageous and determined, able to spot potential trouble and react immediately, but once they have achieved their goal they usually withdraw to gather their thoughts and rest. After relaxing and recuperating they gather their energies once again to prepare for new challenges.

They are suited to a job in public relations, politics, law or catering. They would also make a good astrologer, archeologist, entrepreneur, psychologist or philosopher.




The Snake signs have a very seductive nature, and when they have resolved to woo someone they plan their moves carefully and do not abandon their quest lightly.

They are a humorous and romantic partner who jealously guards important relationships; even if they wander off to flirt with others, they are determined not to lose what they already have. They like the attention that romance offers but do not want to feel trapped, and they also enjoy discovering new friendships, although this may create tensions for the partner left behind.

Sometimes the Snake signs have one set of rules for themselves and one for their partner - they need space to travel and explore without having to account for their movements, yet they keep a wary eye on their partner's activities. But when they are romantically involved they are also loving and attentive, stimulation and playful, although it takes time for they to reveal their fears or discuss their weaknesses. Ideally they want a partner to give they freedom, but they also like the security of sharing intimate moments in relaxed and cosy surroundings.
