The Chinese Zodiac Astrology is ancient, interesting, accurate and loved by millions across the world. The Chinese Zodiac is based on cyclic concept of time : a cycle of 12 years, repeated again and again. The 12 Years are associated with 12 Celestial Animals : Rat (or Mouse on Mongoose), Ox (or Buffalo or Bull or Cow), Tiger, Rabbit (or Hare or Cat), Dragon, Snake (or Serpent), Horse, Goat (or Sheep or Ram), Monkey, Rooster (or Hen or Cock or Chicken or Phoenix), Dog and Pig (or Boar or Hog). The animal names occasionally differ with the Oriental Country they originate. The Chinese Yearly Horoscopes are basically built around these 12 Animal Signs.

Your Chinese Astrological Zodiac Animal Sign is directly based on the Chinese Lunar Year of Birth that you were born. The Chinese New Year is mobile and could start anywhere between 21st January and 20th February, depending upon the year. If your Date of Birth falls into any of the following Chinese Lunar Years, then, because you are born in the Year of the Snake (or Serpent), you are symbolically identified by your Celestial Animal, the “Snake (or Serpent)” :

A good year with a lot of professional luck. The wage earners will earn promotion and pay raise and gain influence with helpful people surrounding them. Some of you will make a career switch or a company change successfully. Some others will launch their own business venture with the help of willing mentors. There will be excellent progress either ways but your health and bad interpersonal equations will be the stumbling blocks. Avoid arrogance and be humble. There will be many a green-eyed person waiting to back-stab you. Take all your colleagues and subordinates along with you and maintain the team spirit always. Display the statues of Monkey on Elephant or Money Frog on Elephant along with the Great KuanKung. Carry three of the Rising Dragon Coins with you. The entrepreneurs will flourish in a feverish pace and initiate many expansion plans. To expand and/or diversify, seek partnership. Avoid disagreement with partners. Negotiation and not confrontation should be your motto. Reward your loyal employees. Insulate yourself from internal politics. Make efforts to build a harmonious inner office structure. Stay away from scandals. Install a Brass Five Element Pagoda Tower to keep away disputes and disharmony from spoiling your opportunities.


Abundant wealth luck this year, some from unexpected sources. Right time for making good investments – both short term and long term. When you are investing for the long term and in large values, seek the advice of competent professionals. To increase your luck for right investments, install the statue of Frogs Trio or Frogs Duo. Windfall luck exists, but unstable. If you trade regularly in the stock markets, carry a set of 3 Nanbu Windfall Luck Coins with you. Avoid being a spendthrift or your impulsive buys will land you in a loss like situation. Chances of financial loss due to theft is high. Strengthen the security measures and install a Brass Five Element Pagoda. Many of you will lose money because of your friends. Do not indemnify anybody on any loan this year. You are also unlikely to recover any money lent out.


Overload of work will lead to depletion of vital reserves which in turn damages your physical and mental health. Bad moods and depressions will frequent you. Rest and relaxation should be given importance. Drive slowly and safely. Accidents leading to fractures may occur. While the males should watch out for problems in nervous and respiratory systems, the females should be alert against uterine and gynecological diseases. Cut out raw, cold and canned food. Avoid adventurous sports like mountain climbing, speed boating, water skiing, scuba diving or parachuting. Install a Brass Five Element Pagoda Tower at home and take a set of 3 Sau Health Coins always with you. Some of you might feel eerie or surreal energies surrounding you. If the feeling persists for longer periods, replenish your spiritual energy and install the exclusive Sacred Geometry Yantra for shielding you from negative entities.


An excellent year for the weddings bells to ring. Singles will get good proposals – choose with care and settle down. Take care of your health during the time of marriage. The married will enjoy the conjugal bliss. Be wary of third party intrusions and nip any extra marital affairs in the bud itself. If you misuse the sexual trust and flirt about, you are sure to break the marriage. Remember to periodically get rid of all the spider webs and pest nests in your bedroom. Keep the statues of Male QuiYong on Dragon and Female QuiYong on Phoenix in the South West of your bedroom and place a set of three Harmony Coins under your bed, to minimize these severe problems.


Emotional instability and wrong friends will distract you from concentrating on your studies. Avoid dressing in such a way that will offend the sensibilities of the elders. Put away the temptation to cross the boundary. Discipline is an absolute must. Romance should be given the least importance in this academically crucial year. Accept the guidance of teachers and parents in the spirit in which it is given. Some of you might go for an overseas trip. Many of you may have work in your summer vacation. Display the Dragon Head Turtle carrying Pagoda Tower in the North East and carry a set of 3 QuiYong Coins, to enforce discipline.
