Chinese Astrology – Snake personality traits – February
Like a deep river, Snake people are usually placid on the surface, but their thoughts and emotions run very deep.
Quiet and unassuming, they prefer to work by themselves and are more often in the spotlight for their real and lasting accomplishments than for outward attempts at garnering attention.
Snakes hate to fail, and are very lucky when it comes to making money. With reputations for being hoarders, they are very frugal and careful about lending money to friends for frivolous reasons.
However, they often show extraordinary sympathy when presented with an opportunity to help those who are truly in need.
Essentially loners, Snake people commonly keep their own counsel and rely on themselves to get ahead in life, mistrusting others’ thoughts and opinions on matters of the utmost importance.
Facts, too, get in the way of decision making for most Snakes, who prefer to use their own deeply held feelings and intuition in negotiating life’s crossroads.
In matters of the heart, the Snake is slow to allow others into their inner circle, but once having gained their trust they can be deeply amorous, and are known to be masters at seduction.
Jealous in nature, they do not handle rejection well at all. And woe to those who betray the affection of the passionate snake! Even in friendships or business dealings in which they feel wronged, they can strike back without a moments notice.
As they mature, snakes don’t exhibit this tendency often, however, since their experience will already have taught them who to let in and who to exclude from their personal or business life.
In business dealings, Snake people command respect for their accomplishments and can enjoy great success as private investigators, bankers, teachers, writers or philosophers.
