Water Snake: February 10, 2013 - January 30, 2014
Snakes are can charm anyone without much effort. They are discreet, perceptive, elegant, and clever. Oxes and Roosters appeal to Snake people better than Tigers, Monkeys, and Pigs.
The element for the year of the Snake is Water. Calmness, optimism, and diplomacy are the themes for this year.
Happy Chinese New Year's! May this year be a charming one!
