Year of the Serpent
Gung hey fat choy, everyone! Happy Chinese Lunar New Year! Welcome to the Year of the Serpent!
In Chinese mythology, serpents are often associated with goddesses and heroines. Serpents bless us with the powerful feminine yin energy of wisdom, mystery and sensuality. Well, that sounds promising, doesn't it? So what can we expect in a Serpent Year? According to Susan Levitt and Jean Tang in Taoist Astrology:
The year of the Serpent is a time of introspection, planning, and seeking answers. People will ponder and think before they act. Good taste and elegance will prevail in fashion, theatre, film, and all the arts. Serpent wisdom influences contributions in the sciences through new technological inventions and discoveries. But this is not an auspicious year for gambling, investing, or taking any financial risks because the calamities of the previous Dragon year can continue into Serpent year. Expect political extremes, scandals, and the exposing of secrets.
