- Chinese New Year -
2025 - The year of the Snake

THE SNAKE
2025, 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965, 1953

Sitting at the other end of the spectrum in the zodiac, the snake is the symbol of yin (female/ cool) energy. A wise sign that is enigmatic, the snake is full of unspoken mysteries. This sign is considered the most irresistible sign that can bewitch anyone in its presence. Snakes, although cool and collected on the surface, are intense and passionate in what they believe.
They rely on their own judgement and will not accept failure.
Snakes are said to be lucky with their finances and learn well from past mistakes. And although sympathetic to others, snakes are known to be miserly. They can be calculative and refuse to be coloured by the ideas and perceptions of others. They may be passionate but are also possessive and demand exclusivity. Snakes find power, wealth and fame irresistible and will plo to achieve their targets.

Type of Snake   Year of Birth   Characteristics
         
Wood Snake   1965, 2025   These Snakes are easygoing and make many close friends. As perfectionists, they fear experimenting and making mistakes. They need the encouragement from friends in order to succeed.
         
Fire Snake   1977, 2037   These Snakes are quick tempered and sometimes act without thinking. They don’t like relying on established groups and are innovative entrepreneurs. If they listen to others’ warnings and wait for the right opportunity, they’ll enjoy great success.
  xx   xx  
Earth Snake   1929, 1989   These Snakes are loyal friends who can keep the friendship for life. But they are sensitive to critique. If hurt, they will never forgive and never forget. They love deeply, but with this comes deep jealousy as well.
         
Gold Snake   1941, 2001   These Snakes are brave and decisive in their actions. They are born leaders who have a balanced mix of strictness and freedom. Sometimes they are arrogant, but even in a crowd, their aura can be sensed easily.
         
Water Snake   1953, 2013   These Snakes are optimistic and aesthetic. They consider every detail before acting. They are also brave, but this entrepreneur spirit is not always shown. If they can lower their overly high self-confidence, they will have a smooth path to success.

Health: Snakes prefer living a peaceful life, and they do not like a noisy environment. Snakes become easily stressed when their lives aren’t calm or in order. Therefore, a manageable workload would be good for them rather than a schedule of over workload. They need to spend lots of time to relax themselves. It's necessary to take vacation at a proper time. People should pay attention to the health of snake people, especially senior members in the family.

Career: Snakes are very creative and extremely diligent. Though snakes work very hard, they have a tendency to be job-hoppers for they will easily become bored. Snakes are great thinkers. Complex problems stimulate them. And of course they’re excellent problem-solvers and thrive under tight deadlines. Good career choices for Snakes include: scientist, analyst, investigator, painter, potter, jeweler, astrologer, magician, dietician, and sociologist.

The Best Love Match: 

  Ox and Rooster
     
    Snake and Ox: Good Union happy with the Ox, who is content to be overrun by this family on condition that the Ox is always accepted as boss -- a role that the Snake willingly concedes in the home.
  xx  
    Snake and Rooster: This is an excellent union and a love connection. Both are ambitious, methodical, and attentive to details. They may not appear to be a romantic couple, but work great in accumulating wealth in life, and they will achieve happiness in marriage. 
     

Words of Caution:

  The Snake and the Tiger are incompatible.
The Tiger mistrust the Snake for he (or she) sees the manipulative and secretive side of the Snake. The Snake is shrewd and cautious, who does not understand the Tigers trustworthy and open nature.

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.

Some web sites say the year 2017 is the 4717th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you: The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But the day that was used as the first day of the year was the winter solstice, which was around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st meant nothing to the Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C., then year 2014 is the 4714th Chinese year
