On the 10th of February, the Chinese calendar began its next cycle with the Year of the Snake.
The sixth sign in the Chinese Zodiac (comprising of 12 animal signs), the Snake is a good omen when found in the home as according to ancient Chinese tradition, it means that your family will not starve.
Individuals born in the Year of the Snake are intuitive, wise, prudent and attractive, exuding an element of mysticism. Although known for being conceited, insatiable and poor communicators, they weigh up their options in a cautious yet logical manner and possess the patience and ambition to achieve great things once they have formulated a long-term plan.
The Snake is a great mediator and signals a year of steady progress, but focus and discipline are key when it comes to fulfilling your goals. It is a year when everything is possible but to reap the best rewards, spending must be controlled and talents used wisely.
