Some nuggets on the Snake’s year, from hanban.com
2013 is the year of the black Snake begins on February 10th shortly after the New moon in Aquarius, the humanitarian of the zodiac. This 2013 year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. It is the enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve.
I am not a believer of feng shui, but I sure hope that the "snake in the house is a good omen" is right. Based on the Chinese Zodiac sign this blogger is a wood snake.
Although the mention of 'focus and discipline' as necessary to achieve goals simply means we determine our destiny--which hardly signifies predictions but about purposive actions, regardless of zodiac signs.
Have a Jolly, Healthy, Prosperous and Loving 2013!
