Personality Traits:
People born under the year of the Snake tend to exhibit the following characteristics: they are intellectual, superstitious, sceptical, astute, have elegance, innate wisdom, and possibly some levels of supernatural capability.  Snake people rarely seek independent advice or advice from others, possibly because on the whole they don't communicate well with others.  They tend to be very private people, but when they are riled they like to "settle old scores".  Generally they are very deliberate about whatever they say. They like to think first and speak later and they also have a cautious business sense.  It is in their nature to be very unremitting and suspicious and this results in a character that is both slow to forgive, highly calculative, somewhat hateful in nature and can certainly bide their time in order to reap their revenge.  Other features include: leading dangerous lives that are full of thrills and intrigue, yet they keep a firmness of purpose and a clear presence of mind.

The year of the Snake: is a somewhat changeable year, filled with preparation, contemplation and much reflection.  Often breakthroughs are made but achieved in silence.  Generally the Snake year is not a calm year, possibly a year of sharp dealings, turmoil and even war if differences cannot be resolved. To sum up: the year of the snake is the strongest most negative force of all of the signs.
