If you were to walk up to a woman in China and call her a Snake she would most probably be flattered. If you did this in any other country you would more than likely get slapped. Westerners do not want to be considered a Snake. However, Snakes are beautiful, in some way they are all gorgeous. You will never see an ungroomed Snake. They don’t exist. Cosmetics, Jewelery and all sorts of things are sacred to the Snake. They are accessory nuts as well and will no doubt have cupboards brimming with bags and scarves, all of course, designer. They wouldn’t, couldn’t have it any other way.
One of the Snakes lesser qualities is their laziness. Mornings are not their favorite time of day and having to get up and be at work on time can be testing for this slinky creature. They must battle daily to stay alert and fight the desire to slither off back to their lair of silken sheets.
Snake people don’t tend to just fall in love, they enchant their lovers. They swirl around them taking in every part of the other persons being until they are one. This is also known as a bad case of possessiveness. For the Snake loves to have complete faithfulness in a partner, which is strange as they are not always that good at it themselves, they are so good at charming people and so attractive that people often just fall at their feet, and they find refusing such a horrible thing to have to do, we wouldn’t’ want to hurt the persons feelings now would we?!!
Snakes always seem to have their pockets full of money. And they do love to go out and buy some seriously expensive items. I have known Snake women with so many expensive shoes and bags they have had to have a room dedicated to them. However, they are not spend thrift and probably are not the best people to go to for a loan. They don’t mind the occasional shopping spree but are useless at the mundane everyday household grocery type of shopping, so their cupboards are very often filled with Champagne, cakes and salmon. They are not bread and milk people, and even less, meat and two veg.
Snakes are not one of the healthier signs of the Chinese Zodiac. And illness’ can start in childhood especially if there is a lot of stress around them. This can lead to ailments when they are older such as kidney stones and digestive and urinary tract infections. To try and combat this the Snake should always try and drink plenty of water, and then it should be the finest mineral water to keep his system clean. It is a must to stay away from fizzy wines and although Champagne is drunk like water by Snakes, it is a definite no no I’m afraid. They also don’t recover well from illness and injury and normally stay coiled up for quite some time before emerging to take on another day. The Snake must try and take gentle exercise such as swimming and perhaps jogging. Certainly not anything too heavily physical such as boxing and even tennis. They must rest often and give their delicate mind time to unravel.
Snakes are most compatible with: Roosters and Oxen are known to keep you in check. Dragons you will enjoy immensely between the sheets but Tigers are one of the worst alliances you could make, as is the meeting of your nemesis the Pig!
