🐍 The elusive Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese zodiac.

Snakes are often individuals with a great force of attraction thanks to their beauty and their sensuality.

Serious, analytical, gifted with a very thoughtful mind, they rely on their own impressions. It's even said that Snakes have a sixth sense.

Their sharp wit and their elegance make them particularly fit individuals for careers in trade, politics and public relations. The Snake is cunning, likes to speak with accuracy and precision, always careful in what he says. Snakes are also well known for their sense of humor. However in situations where they feel threatened, their wit could turn black, and make room for a sarcastic and aggressive tone.

People born in the Year of the Snake are generous beings, provided they are served first. Generally especially possessive and jealous in love, Snakes require much from their partners while taking all their time to forgive. Their real anger, mostly expressed by a black and hostile silence, can become destructive with passing time.

With their infallible and lively memory, enigmatic Snakes tend to never forget anything about what they lived. Always on guard, Snakes use their great intuitive power primarily to see things coming before others.

Yet even if we couldn't say the same for their youth, aging Snakes become stingy but nevertheless more thoughtful and deep. They also tend not to repeat the same mistakes again. However, this doesn't apply to their sentimental life, and throughout their life.

Snakes are rather introverted and prone to philosophy and intellectual activities. They're often discrete observers, with a strong capacity for deduction. Very secretive, they don't share their knowledge with the first comer, if not with anyone. But if they do, and once they've granted their trust to someone, they shall never forgive any type of betrayal. When they feel abused, they turn into vindictive and stubborn creatures, waiting patiently for the right moment to overcome their misfortune.

During complicated moments of their life, Snakes won't hesitate to use deceit to get to their ends. They're also subject to an uncontrolled attraction to risky behaviors (underground, or even dangerous). If in their youth they were unable to successfully turn these impulses into something positive, this could very well become dangerous for them and leave visible scars throughout their life.
