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.

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.
