Happy Year of the Snake!

Following and completing 2012's unpredictable yang Dragon year, 2013's sensual yin Snake year will complete the life palace of spirituality. The Water Snake year brings with it, cosmic awareness, sage spirituality, and integration with your Source, Maker or Spirit.

2013 The Year of the Water Snake
February 10, 2013 through January 30, 2014

The Snake feels and senses its way through life and represents spiritual rebirth, elusiveness and exploration of life's mysteries. In the Chinese astrological system, the large 60 year cycles (which contain the smaller 12 year cycles) are profoundly important. Although each animal sign repeats every 12 years, the specific combination of animal and element occur only once every 60 years. Not since 1953 have we had the alignment of Water (stem) & Snake (branch) year.

The ending or culminating months of deep and covert Water Snake years is the winter, the period of dormancy and quiet gestation. The Water Snake rules ponds and stagnant pools, peat and bamboo. Water of the marshes Water of winter nights, calm and deep water to be feared and respected.

Still water sheltering underwater secrets asleep in its depths; sinking and muddy. Profit from this year to restore your energies and regain your inner balance. Avoid overwork or any excesses which will follow with depression. Maintain your equilibrium and do not waste your energy. Don't go too far too quickly. This year's Water element will be socially beneficial, calming and conducive to meditation and interpersonal contact.

The nature of the deeply feeling Snake year is "gradual and gathered strength," bringing a more moderate than radical year. During Snake years, our concerns turn toward inner-growth, spirituality and discovering the reasons behind things.

Sensual Snakes are sensitive to changes in weather, dislike the cold, and accordingly during Snake years warmer climates are preferred. A creative, artistic year, filled with pleasure, enlightenment and beauty. Music, dance, art galleries and museums thrive. 2013 brings a slower paced, quiet, behind-the-scenes lifestyle.

A deep-thinking, philosophical year, where intuition and all things middle-of-the-road reign supreme. Beware the green eyes of jealousy in 2013, as Snakes are also quite possessive of that which they call their own. Carnal passions and deliciously scandalous romances abound.

Some of the most physically beautiful women and powerful men were born under this sign. Sexuality is a Snake specialty.
