"Mine is the wisdom of ages. I hold the key to the mysteries of life. Casting my seeds on fertile ground I nurture them with constancy and purpose. My sights are fixed. My gaze unchanging. Unyielding, inexorable and deep I advance with steady, Un-slackened gait, the solid earth beneath me. I AM THE SNAKE."

"Snakes are the emblem of cunning and evil. They are also revered owing to their supernatural power. Snake people are blessed with an inborn wisdom. They are grateful, soft spoken like fine things. They rely on their own judgment and do not communicate with others well. But snakes are always on guard. They can be possessive and demanding."

Best Friends are : Ox, Rooster and Dragon
Not Tolerant of : Tiger
Famous Snake People are : Picasso, Mao Zedong and Abraham Lincoln

Special Chareteristics of the SNAKE dominated by the Fire Element

"An intense and masterful Snake. Active in mind and body, you perform energetically. Fire added to the already imposing Snake personality can give you great public appeal and charisma. You exude confidence and the ability to lead. People will vote for this type of person if they chose to go into politics.

Although you may hold open forums to solicit or asses the views of the majority, the Fire Snake is terribly suspicious by nature. You are too quick to censure and to condemn. Sometimes you insulate yourself with a close circle and advisers, thereby isolating yourself without knowing it. Your strong, almost maniacal desire for fame, money and power will make you insist on concrete results..

Persevering and uncompromising, you set your sights on the highest goals and once you get to the top you will cling to power indefinitely.

The Fire Snake is the most sensual, feverent and jealous kind of Snake. You will display excessive love or hate and be very preoccupied with yourself."
