SNAKE - 6th Animal Sign of Chinese Astrology

The Character of the Snake

The Snake is the sixth animal in the cycle of the twelve and corresponds to the Earthly Branch Szu. Szu hours are between 9 and 11 o’clock, and belongs to the fourth month, a time of activity, growth and development. The Snake represents kindness, intelligence and wisdom, and those born in this year also have these characteristics.

You are sensitive, amenable, attractive and decisive. You are able to make trusting and long-term friendship. Your ideas are original and well thought out and your actions are planned carefully beforehand. You will be successful because you never abandon your goals until they are achieved or your work until it is finished. You are confident and sensible and a good judge of situations and people. You enjoy debate and investigation and dislike wasting time on idle chatter. Once you have set your mind on something you will complete it no matter how many difficulties you face; at the same time you will rarely lose patience with others.

You will never be short of money or good luck, but your desire for money and property can make you selfish, moody and proud. Although you have a protective and caring side to your character, once you have been offended you will always take revenge.

You jealously guard the things or the people who are close to you. Even if you have affairs outside marriage, you still cling on to your relationship with your husband/wife and make every effort to keep him/her in your control.

A man born in this year is humorous, romantic and very attractive to woman. A woman born in this year is irresistible to men and is usually the center of attention at a party. Men and women born in this year are drawn to affairs outside married life. If you want a happy marriage, concentrate on domestic affairs; do not let yourself be drawn away by outside interests.

Someone born in the year of the Ox will be a good marriage or business partner. The hard-working Ox person will tolerate your selfishness and will accept family responsibility. A marriage with someone born in the year of the Cock will be successful if you learn to cooperate with each other. Someone born in the year of the Rat, the Rabbit, the Dragon, the Horse or the Ram will make a suitable partner. Avoid choosing someone born in the year of the Tiger, the Monkey or the Pig. The Pig will make a particularly bad partner; the Chinese say that the Pig will fall into the Snake’s trap. Your relationship will be full of disagreements over major and minor matters.
