Snake horoscopes are Yin most closely associated with the Element of Fire, and its gemstone is Agate. Snake horoscopes share traits with Taurus astrology.

Although it may appear languid and serene, inside its mind is spinning at light speed. Perhaps the wisest sign in the Chinese Zodiac, with a special talent that enables it to judge situations correctly, the serpent is very comfortable as a philosopher, a theologian, or a politician. A disproportionate number of those with psychic talents are born under this sign.

Although it rarely takes advice, it is patient with others when it comes to giving a helping hand, and its ability to look at a problem from a variety of angles is extremely useful. The serpent loves books, music, clothes and fine food – in short, it likes to live well. Communication and conversation (which usually focus on new and unusual ideas) are its heart and soul.

The Chinese Zodiac’s Snake learns the lessons of contemplation, the middle road of temperance, and wisdom. Snakes are patient, passive-aggressive, calculating, conservative, and quietly powerful. The Snake’s timing is impeccable – they are always ready when the time comes to act. This soul is destined to control from behind the scenes, which allows them to maintain their privacy. Seductively charming and mysterious, those born into Snake years possess immense wisdom.

Outwardly calm and quiet, they are intense and passionate on the inside. The Snake is the sign known for their unmatched physical beauty. Sage advice and flawless skin are the Snake’s most awe-inspiring gifts. These souls like an orderly environment and schedule, and require the utmost privacy. Snakes follow through and hate being left up in the air.

The best time of day for the Snake is between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.,the time when the yang power has fully gathered its strength and the workday begins. Snakes are late risers, not fully awake until the sun has completely risen. They need to absorb the suns warmth before they are ready for action. Snake people tend to be at their best at this mid-morning time.

The Snake senses and feels its way through life. The Snake universally represents spiritual rebirth, elusiveness, and the exploration of life’s mysteries. Sophisticated and reserved, the Snake is elegant in speech, dress, and manners. The Snake soul does not indulge in useless small talk or frivolities and are careful about what they say. Some Snakes have a slow or easygoing way of speaking, and they like to ponder concepts, as well as assess and formulate their views and personal theories before speaking.

The evasive and private nature of the Snake is mysterious, and that is the way they prefer it. They conceal their feelings, sharing at their own choosing. The Snake relies on first impressions, feelings,and sympathies rather than the opinions of others. Their finely tuned intuition may make Snakes seem mistrusting of others. However, this is not the case – they are merely selective of whom they choose to allow into their inner world.

The souls born into a Snake year entertain deep thoughts. They are often considered intellectuals and philosophers. They also have the ability to develop their sixth sense to the point of clairvoyance. It is most important for a Snake to find a channel through which they can express their wealth of gifts and ideas. Favorite collectibles for Snakes are works of art, rare books, precious gemstones, or collections of classical music. These items, of course, need to be genuine, as Snakes scorn fakes or reproductions.

Unenlightened Snakes can be covert, secretive, and extravagant. Snakes insist on quality, and quality can be costly. The flip side to the Snakes extravagance is their stinginess and penny-pinching. They guard their possessions doggedly. This jealous and possessive behavior represents the Snakes energy being directed in its most unproductive form. Expressed in its darkest form, this energy becomes dishonesty, procrastination, stubbornness, vengefulness, lethargy, and odd or eccentric behavior. The choice lies entirely with the individual. Taken to extreme, criminal behavior or schizoid personality disorders may develop.

According to the ancient Chinese people, the season in which a Snake is born, as well as atmospheric conditions at birth, will profoundly affect them throughout life. Snakes born into the spring and summer months, during the midday heat, will be the happiest and most prosperous. Those Snakes born at night during a cold winterstorm could be vulnerable to danger, as the destiny of the Snake is so sensitive.

The first two phases of the Snakes life should be relatively calm, but during the final phase, their passionate nature will flare up, causing some youthful adventure and a wonderful reverse-aging process. Snakes are cautious about lending money, and this can cause internal conflict when someone touches their sympathies. Help is most often offered in the form of kindness and assistance rather than cash. However, Snakes are extremely generous with their time, and often counsel, support, or advise the emotionally distraught.

Many Snakes are psychiatrists, counselors, or spiritual advisors by profession.The Snake soul enjoys pleasing others and adores ornamentation. Snakes detest being duped, taken in, or set up as an example. Favorite leisure activities for the Snake include redecorating, rearranging and maintaining treasured possessions, and spending tranquil weekends in the country listening to classical music, reading, or studying the arcane sciences.

The Snake, as a child, is eager to please and understand their parents, and they love to be treated as an adult. Little Snakes love to be told secrets, and they have an enormous need for affection and tenderness. Little Snakes, however, don’t appreciate sharing their parents affection with their siblings, and they need to feel preferred. This sedate and calm child develops gradually. Their physical and mental growth does not come in spurts like other children, but rather develops gradually and steadily. Being fair-of-face and wise beyond their years, these children are sensual, easy-going, and entertain deep thoughts. The passive-aggressive personality of this child prefers to give others enough rope to allow matters to run their course. A predominance of psychiatrists and philosophy professors were born into Snake years.

Snakes make understanding parents and are able to put themselves in their childrens place. So much so, they struggle with objectivity in their parental role. Snake parents try to understand the perspective of their children. They want to feel their children’s experiences, understand their ideas, and appreciate their attitudes. Their children’s confidences are safe with their Snake parent, who can keep a secret for life.

The most favorable time of year for the Snake is between mid-June and mid-July, when the hot, bright sun fosters activity and growth among animals, insects, and plants. This is when the Snake is ready to seize opportunities for profit and gain, and ready to test ideas and fulfill private desires. Favorite places for the snake include lush forest grottoes, or just the opposite: a dry desert environment.

They enjoy counting the stars under a crystal-clear sky, or being snug and cozy in their beautifully decorated homes. Everything in the Snakes home is comfortable and designed for pleasuring the senses. Music playing softly, deep, comfortable cushions, perfumed candles, lovely flowers, a well-filled library, and perhaps some fine wines are characteristic of what visitors will experience in the home of a Snake. Favorite books include nonfiction, self-help, philosophy, occult sciences, and religion.

The best career for a Snake is as a professor of philosophy, since Snakes are both smooth of tongue and multilingual. Snake women are many times found as high-fashion models, as their physical beauty is legendary. Snake souls also make wonderful teachers, psychiatrists, psychologists, diplomats, ambassadors, astrologers, clairvoyants, and fit well in any profession requiring the skill of divination. The Snakes professional ambition can be defined as to be able to lead the easy life.

Their primary quality of wisdom distances them from work conflicts, rivalries, and other power struggles. Success suits them, and the Snake knows how to use their innate charm to present an idea or outline a program coolly and logically. Snakes will also excel in public relations, or in performing the delicate tasks of a mediator or intermediary. In any kind of work, the Snake will be willful and determined. They believe in physical and mental economy, and organize and calculate their actions so as not to waste effort or energy. The worst role for a Snake is that of an assembly-line worker – it could literally make them ill.
