The Snake
According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2013 is the Year of the Snake, which begins on February 10, 2013 and ends on January 30, 2014. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. The Snake personality is believed to hold mysterious power and influence. Appreciative of the finer aesthetics in life, the Snake possesses a keen air of calmness in situations of conflict.
The Snake's ability to renew itself typifies the strength for rebirth and recovery. A resilient and strong willpower enables the Snake to achieve objectives never faltering away from its true focus. The Chinese consider it lucky to have a symbol of the Snake for those born under the respective year.
