Those born under the Sign of the Serpent, a Yin Fire Sign, are usually considered charismatic, cunning, clever, passionate, determined, romantic, intense, wise and charming, but vain. Serpents are often strikingly beautiful attractive, especially the women. Serpents will be strongly guided by their intuition. The Serpent would be a teacher, politicians, clergy, philosopher, writer, psychiatrist, or Psychic. They tend to follow their own thoughts and instincts and rarely follow others’ advice. They appreciate good music, good food, the arts, and, courteous and polite, they are good company. They are very trusting, and if someone breaks a Serpent’s trust they will never regain it.
On the downside of things, Serpents can be controlling and strict. Serpents can be possessive. They may have a bad temper, be jealous and suspicious, and, although they may appear calm on the surface, they may be experiencing unexpressed turbulence. Serpents tend to overdo things, and are overly loquacious. They are not very good at interpersonal relationships.
The Serpent’s best matches are: the Ox, Rooster and Dragon. They need to avoid the Tiger and Pig as much as possible.
