In brief: The elusive Year of the Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese zodiac. The Snake often has a great seductive power, thanks to his beauty, his sensuality and his enigmatic intelligence.

📅 2022 & 2023 Chinese zodiac predictions for the Year of the Snake:

Year of the Snake: Personality horoscope

The Snake's bright, mysterious and elegant spirit easily opens up career prospects for him in business, politics and public relations. The Snake is cunning, likes to speak with accuracy and precision, and he always pays attention to what he says. The Snake is also known for his sense of humor and his sharp spikes. However, in situations where he feels threatened, his mind may darken suddenly to make room for a much harder tone, both sarcastic and aggressive.

A man or a woman born during a year of the Snake is a generous being, on the condition of being the first served.

Generally possessive and jealous in love, the Snake expects a lot of his partner, while he takes all his time to forgive in return. His profound anger, mainly expressed by a black and hostile silence, can become destructive with the test of time. His jealousy, probably his strongest defect, can have deleterious effects on his couple but also be a brake on his career ambitions, because he may then linger with envy on the achievements of others, rather than patiently weave the threads of his own success.

With his infallible and animated memory, the enigmatic Snake tends to forget nothing of what he has experienced in the past. Always on guard, he uses his great intuitive power to anticipate events to his advantage.

While this is usually not the case during his youth, the Snake can become stingy when getting older, but nevertheless more serene and wise. Thus, he manages not to repeat the same mistakes, except for his emotional life.

The Snake is rather introverted and inclined to philosophy and intellectual activities. He is often a discreet observer, with a strong capacity for deduction. Very secretive, the Snake certainly doesn't share his knowledge with unknown people. But when he does confides, after having finally trusted someone, he will never forgive that person the slightest betrayal. When he feels mistreated, the Snake transforms into a vindictive and tenacious creature, able to wait patiently for the opportune moment to overcome his misadventure and finally regain the advantage. Suffice to say that no one has the slightest interest in becoming an enemy of the Snake, because he is perfectly armed to turn around to his advantage the most complex of any given situation.

In the complicated moments of his life, the Snake doesn't hesitate to use cunning to achieve his ends. He may also be attracted by risky behavior, danger and underground worlds. If during his youth the Snake was unable to successfully channel his darkest impulses, these can gradually grow to become perilous and leave visible scars.

Year of the Snake's 2023 Horoscope
Feng Shui Colors 2023 for the Snake: Cerulean Blue, Straw Yellow

Chinese horoscope of the Snake during the Year of the Rabbit 2023, in love, work, career, health, luck, studies and travels

According to the 2023 Chinese horoscope of the Snake, the Rabbit (animal of the year 2023) promotes beneficial developments in all aspects of his life, throughout the year. Under the Rabbit's benevolent influence, the Snake's relationship with his work, with his family and with those close to him takes new turns. Delays, distances and feelings of emotional loss disappear, giving way to dynamics focused on progress and consolidation. In 2023, the Snake has the power to demolish all the walls of conviction that he has erected in his mind and which are preventing him from taking off. Of a difficult character and willingly vindictive, the Snake will walk the thorny path of listening and forgiveness, especially with himself. In order to take full advantage of this Chinese New Year 2023 that the Rabbit is preparing for him, the Snake will learn to suppress any proud, jealous and obstinate behavior, which has no place in this new favorable environment.

According to the Snake's 2023 work and money horoscope, it is not the missions to accomplish that will be lacking. Very solicited and busy, the Snake will have to make crucial choices between his professional life and his private life. Multiple partnerships, growing projects, expansion of the field of action with supporting grants, the Snake will only have to solicit to obtain the means necessary for his action. Also, despite the particularities usually embodied by the Rabbit, 2023 will not be a year of celebration or nonchalant sleepovers for the Snake. The energy boost that the Rabbit provides the Snake must be used in an optimal way. To this end, an excellent organization will be essential to the Snake if he wishes to benefit from all his experiences. The Rabbit encourages the Snake to be sober and meticulous in each of his steps. Nothing should be left to chance and no obstacle or intellectual challenge should divert the 6th Chinese zodiac sign from his priorities. In this Year of the Rabbit 2023, the Snake can expect to be rewarded at the height of his investments.

According to the Snake's 2023 love horoscope, the year is more mixed in terms of feelings, the Water element (element of the year 2023) running the risk of playing tricks on him. In 2023, the Snake's roadmap will inevitably feature old sentimental stories whose disengagements had never been properly verbalized. Inevitably, the Snake will have to deal with situations that will not always be very pleasant to live with. At some point, the Snake will even have to leave the cozy comfort of ready-made beliefs to confront other realities and other territories. In this Chinese year 2023, a child, a parent, a family member or an ex-spouse can appear at any time and impose their law or seek compensation for a past wrongdoing. The fact remains that the emotional losses suffered will reveal to the Snake the paths of relief and acceptance. It's a whole learning program that awaits the Snake in 2023, provided that he is sufficiently serene and solid in his way of apprehending the future. In 2023, the Snake, whether single or in a relationship, should turn an important page in his love life, to inaugurate with fresh and clear ink the stories of the thrilling sentimental victories that the years to come have in store for him.
