Snake in Chinese The Secret to Good Luck
Designed by Detnecs
Chinese mythology has a special revered place for snakes. When the Supreme God was handing out assignments to the lesser Gods for the supervision over all the creatures of the earth everyone expressed reservations at being held accountable for the dominion of the snakes. Finally a minor god agreed to watch over snakes and as a reward for his service the Supreme Being offered to the volunteer the supervision of good luck. Accordingly good fortune is directly connected with our attitudes towards the snake. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve. There are many interpretations of this omen. For one the Snake is a great business person and can negotiate fortunate situations. Or it could mean that a Snake would be willing to sacrifice his possessions, something most Snakes have in abundance, in order to pay for his family’s food. Regardless all stories are representative of the Snake’s character and the measure of the value the Snake puts on his material wealth. Snakes are keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise. Though the starting day of the year may vary the majority of people born in the years 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989 and 2001 are Snakes. The Snake is intuitive, introspective, refined and more collected than any of the other Animal Signs. Usually attractive people they take crisis with ease and rarely become flustered. Graceful people, they are exciting and dark at the same time. Always contemplative and private, the Snake is never outwardly emotional. Cunning and reticent he works modestly in the business environment. The Snake will plot and scheme to make things turn out exactly as he needs them to. No great communicators they often, in their confusion, become quite possessive when they set their minds on achieving the interest of a partner. The year of the Snake is the sixth in the Chinese astrological order following the year of the Dragon and occurs every 12 years. The Chinese name for Snake is SHE, the sign of the sagacity. May is the month of the Snake and as such the Western astrological counterpart is Taurus. Snakes are acute, aware, cunning and proud but often vain, and vicious. The simple Chinese character for the complex Snake.
