Snake's 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 person born during a year of the Snake is a generous being, provided that he is the first to be 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.
