2013 - Year of the Snake 2013

2013 - Year of the Water Snake. The Jade Emperor invited all the animals and he named a year after each of the first 12 animals to arrive. The snake was 6th, having wrapped itself around the leg of the horse in order to cross the great river. Just as they were arriving to the palace, the snake jumped ahead of the horse. This tells us a lot about the nature of the snake, who is not afraid to use others to reach its own ends.

The year 2013 is influenced by the energy of the animal and its internal element, the element of the year, and whether the year is yang or yin.

What will the year be like?

The year will be a combination of the energies of the:

  • Snake
  • Fixed element: fire
  • Year element: water
  • Energy of the snake: Yin
  • Energy of the year: Yin

This is a double Yin year, so it is better to develop strategies that promote yielding and negotiations, rather than attempting head on collisions with problems and situations. People who are introverts will feel more comfortable with the energies of the year than extroverts.

This is a year for peace and for quiet reflection. The snake is good for money and communication. There will be lots of talks about morality and there may be a re-definition of what is moral.

Be alert for people trying to take advantage of you. Remember that the snake arrived to the palace by taking advantage of the energy and the power of the horse.

It is a good year to make large purchases, provided that you have analyzed all the factors involved. In 2013, enjoy the luxuries that come your way - the snake likes this.

The general energy of the year combines with your animal sign, the internal element of your sign, the element of the year that you were born in and the element that predominates in your own constitution. It is a very complex interaction, but the information below can give you clues:

The Snake has excellent relations with the Ox and the Rooster, and gets along fairly well with the Rat. People born in years corresponding to these animals will find it fairly easy to navigate the year.

Relationships with the Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat and Dog are workable. People born in these years will need to negotiate with the energies of the year.

The Snake does not gel along with the Tiger, the Monkey or the Pig. This doesn't mean that if you were born in the year of the tiger, monkey or pig this will be a bad year for you. It merely means that this may not be the most comfortable year for you, and it might take a little extra care and work.

When does the Chinese Year of the Snake start in 2013?

This Chinese Year starts February 10 of 2013.

What is the Snake like?

The Snake is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac and related to the Chinese calendar, as well as in related East Asian zodiacal systems. The Year of the Snake is associated with the earthly branch symbol but the internal nature of the snake is of the fire element.

Snakes are mysterious, charming and passionate. Snakes rely on themselves and dislike having to depend on others. The snake is determined in pursuing its goals, very patient in waiting for the right moment to strike its prey. Never underestimate their patience. They are kind and generous, but also demanding. The snake likes the good things in life. They are elegant and good at making money, but only invest it in the best. Snakes have a great intuition and are good at determining the motives of other people. If you upset a snake, beware, it can strike back with great accuracy.

What is the element of the Year 2013?

The element is water, so this is the year of the Water Snake. Water is the beginning of life. In Feng Shui the water element rules the Career, Life Mission and Individuality area. In Traditional Chinese Medicine water rules the kidneys and the bladder, the bones, the ear and the hair on the scalp. This is a year to pay special attention to your career and to the body parts mentioned.

What is the Water Snake like?

Water Snakes are influential and insightful. They manage others well. They are very intellectual, and very determined about success. The natural tendency of the snake to manage money well, is enhanced by the water element, the element of money. They are affectionate with their closed ones but guarded with strangers.

How do the elements work with each other this year?

The internal nature of the snake is of the fire element, but the year is a water year. Water puts out fire, so the natural tendency of this year is for the snake will struggle to assert itself. All the characteristics of the snake will be challenged by the water element of the year, except for one: the ability to make money.

Water can only put out fire in the absence of the wood element. This year, if you feel that your projects, especially money and learning projects, are getting stalled, increase the presence of the wood element. The wood element is represented in the colors green and light blue, live healthy plants and sour or citric flavors.

To tune in to the energies of the Year, you need to place an image of a snake in a prominent place in your home or business (but not too close to the main entrance). Purchase a Year of the Snake Calendar or Cure below:
