It's the Year of the Snake. What does 2013 hold in store? It should be a year of steady progress, and attention to detail, requiring focus and discipline in order to achieve goals. That sounds like pretty straightforward advice. In the Chinese horoscope, the snake symbolizes beauty and intelligence, with Jackie O. being the ultimate icon. Audrey Hepburn, Brooke Shields, and Taylor Swift were also born in snake years. What a glamorous group!
In addition to animals, Chinese astrology also associates one of five elements and colors with each. This is the year of the Black Water Snake. The other elements and colors are: metal/white; wood/green; fire/red; and soil/brown. There are also lucky colors, directions, days, and numbers for each symbol. Lucky colors for snakes are red and yellow; lucky directions are southwest and northwest; Monday is their lucky day; and lucky numbers are two, four, seven, and nine.
Wishing all a happy, healthy, and prosperous Year of the Snake!
