2013_Year_of_the_SnakeAfter the Dragon has disrupted our lives we bid him adieu and watch him stomp off as he whips his tail and heads back into the mountains.

We slither into the year of Black Water Snake on the 10th February but -- be weary… the Water Snake in not as harmless as we think – it can be treacherous, but also kind, as long as you leave it alone. You just never know with Sssnakes though. It’s not a good idea to argue with them unless you are ready to lose. They give so many people the creeps with their slithery, slimy, scaly bodies, piercing eyes and wicked tongue – but as long as they get their way, they are quite loving and ssssweet.

This is a good year to focus on how you look, jack up on your appearance. It is also a good year to start up a sizzzzling romance. Sensuality is in the air during Snake year. Matters of the heart are re-energized this Year. It is good for studies, so enrol in that course that you have wanted to do. The Snake is a lover of knowledge and truth. Re-awaken intellectual pursuits.

Taxes will be higher and luxury goods less accessible to the middle class.  Geologically, it could play out as earthquakes, electricity problems and fires. The Black Snake will bring people unexpected changes, instability, and changeability.
