Year of the Snake Personality, Traits, & Characteristics

You, Snake, will not be ignored and expect nothing less than to be the apple of everyone’s eye. However, you are never a snake in the crass. Your manners are impeccable. You’re the un-extroverted extrovert! You love power and control but from behind the scenes.

In the personalities of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals, you’ll find the Snake to be among the most determined. Once committed to something or someone, the Snake will persevere to the bitter end.

An intellectual and philosopher, to say a Snake is cerebral is the understatement of the Chinese New Year. In fact, those born under the Chinese zodiac sign of the Snake tend to be psychic. They have a knowing that others cannot fathom. Further, you, Snake, have the confidence to follow your gut and trust your natural instincts.

However, Snake, you sometimes speak with forked tongue. If you wore pants, they’d be on fire. You don’t lie often but when you do, you’re so good at it, you believe yourself. Now you know that’s a no-no, Snake. And it says so in the Good Jungle Book.

Sssympathetic and generous with money, the Snake, ssspeaking of money, will never have to worry about finances. Somehow, there always seems to be enough.

So, stop wiggin’ Medusa. You’ll alwaysss be able to get yo’ weave did, Girl.

Year of the Snake Love Compatibility

Snakes are the original seducers of mankind. Once he or she hypnotizes you with their trademark enigmatic stare, you’ll think you’ve rolled snake eyes and hit the jackpot o’ love.

So adept at coiling around someone’s heart is the Snake that when pitted against one in a competition for affections, the other Chinese zodiac signs simply concede victory; slytherin away while muttering, “Snakes. Why’d it have to be Snakes?”

Sometimes you do have to watch out though. The Chinese Snake personality can be a bit possessive and suffocating. Usually very funny, beautiful and successful, they need a lot of security.

If a Snake can’t find the security they so desperately need or – God forbid – get rejected, they are very likely to grow their hair long, rat it out, buy some ripped jeans and start an 80’s tribute band.

You’ll find them in some sleazy pit with their fangs hooked over the rim of a Martini glass, sucking down the venomous elixir and wailing;

“Here I go again on my own.
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
Cos’ I know what it means to walk the lonely street of dreams.”

Snake Symbolism & Meaning

On the Chinese zodiac calendar, Snake years (though quieter than the previous Dragon year) are full of mystery. Beware of things you can’t immediately see during these years.
Snake symbolism is based on its ancient ancestry. From the Garden of Eden to Harry Potter, Snakes have always symbolized secrecy, wisdom and treachery. However, Snakes are also symbols of guarded treasures.

If you’re searching for treasure like – oh, say – your car keys, and you just can’t seem to find it, look again. It’s closer than you might think.

In fact, it’s so close, if it wuz a Snake…it woulda’ bit cha’!
