Water Snake's Chinese calendar (1953, 2013)
If you were born in 1953 or 2013, the annual pillar of the Water Snake corresponds to your main Chinese zodiac sign.
Let us remember in preamble that the Chinese lunisolar calendar being based on the lunar cycles, the dates of the Year of the Water Snake are different from a year of the Gregorian calendar (see below the exact dates of the Water Snake Years).
In Chinese astrology, your date of birth can be broken down into four pillars of destiny (四柱 命理 学) or Ba-Zi (八字). Each pillar of destiny is associated with an animal and a Chinese element and corresponds to one of the periods of your birth (year, month, day and hour). If you were born at a Snake Hour, a Water Snake Day or during a Water Snake Month, each of these periods also corresponds to a pillar of destiny. The four pillars of the Water Snake share the same imaged destiny, which you can discover further down the page.
Furthermore, if your year of birth is 1953 or 2013 and the Water Snake is therefore your 1st pillar of destiny (your main Chinese zodiac sign, which is the one corresponding to your personality and your relationship to the world and with others), then all Water Snake Days and Months, as well as the Chinese Hour of the Snake, are lucky times for you.
