If you’re interested in astrology, it’s always fun to take a look at the Chinese zodiac. Rather than month by month, your Chinese zodiac animal sign is determined by the year in which you were born. If you were born in the year 1988, 2001, or 2013 (as well as 1967 and 1977 before them), our animal sign is the snake. While this may seem a bit menacing at first given the general western view of reptilian animals, it is treated with much respect in the Chinese culture.
The meaning of the Chinese zodiac animal snake sign should unveil a bit more about your personality. According to Chinese astrology, anyone born with this sign is likely intense, wise, and incredibly devoted to their cause. Your resolve is likely second to none, and your ability to keep yourself motivate and inspired is likely exemplary. When considering the plight of the snake in its often laboured travels, this should make quite a bit of sense.
Much like actual snakes, your intensity may lead some people to be apprehensive when getting too close to you. You can use this to your advantage by only letting the most trusted individuals into your inner circle. While it may sometimes lead to mixed signals, you’ll find that your natural ability to keep some people at bay quite useful in many social situations. If you wish to keep to yourself, you’ll be able to do so without much resistance.
The understandings of the Chinese zodiac have been studied for many years now (like this example), and the parallels that individuals often have in correspondence to their animal signs are often shockingly accurate. A number of the personality traits listed above are likely resonating quite accurately. Even if not, you may at least be able to use what Chinese astrology says about you to better understand your place in the world.
For example, you may be able to use the determination of the snake to help fuel your work towards seemingly difficult or even impossible goals. You’ll likely strive in positions where you have to rely solely upon yourself to get things going. Your self-propelled nature will always serve you well since you won’t have to worry about depending upon others. If you initially thought that having the snake animal sign was somehow a detriment, you couldn’t have possibly been any further from the truth!
