People born in the year of the snake are usually considered attractive, wise and enchanting. I do love books, music, clothes, fine food and wine; but dislike frivolities, small minds and foolish talk. I am not attractive in the narrow sense. In Chinese astrology it is also believed that people born in the year of the Snake are self-confident, driven, focused and willing to listen to someone else’s opinion, but don’t necessarily take it ‘on board’. Refusing to listen to constructive advice; intelligent and headstrong. They treasure their privacy and will have many a dark secret locked up within.

Snake people like communicating, particularly interesting and challenging conversations; if the conversation becomes repetitive their attention may soon wander. It is almost impossible to fix my attention for long talking about mundane everyday habits as  I prefer to focus on new, interesting  ideas. The Snake needs mental exercise in a conversation or relationship.In relationships with others, Snakes are possessive and very demanding. And yet at the same time, they view their associates with a certain distrust. They will never forgive anyone who breaks a promise and have a special talent that enables them to judge situations correctly. They are alert to new possibilities. The Snake is at home in any social situation, able to adapt and converse on all levels.

Although it is difficult for such people to take advice, they are patient and compassionate with others when it comes to giving a helping hand, and their ability to look at a problem from a variety of angles is extremely useful. When faced with a dilemma, Snake people, as a rule, act with speed and conviction, since they believe intensely in what they are doing and rarely waste time or energy on projects lacking in good potential. In times of confusion and trouble, the Snake person is a pillar of strength because they maintains a presence of mind. The Snake can deal with bad news and misfortune with great aplomb. They have a profound sense of responsibility and an unsinkable constancy of purpose.

The best partners for the Snake not be a pig, but that I have chosen.
