food, music and the theater; he or she prefers all the best things in
life. Usually, the most beautiful women and the most powerful men are
born under this sign...so if you're a Snake, you'll be in good company!
Generally, they trust in their own judgment and don't communicate well
with others. They can be profoundly religious or psychic or, on the other
hand, completely hedonistic. In any case, they trust in their own gut
feeling rather than listening to others' advice... and they are often right!
Like the Dragon, the Snake is a karmic sign. His or her life ends either
tragically or triumphantly, depending on past actions. And although they
deny it, Snakes are very superstitious although they prefer to be skeptical.

consciously or unconsciously. It's rare for those born in the Year of
