Happy New Year - Year of the Snake 2013!
The Snake has been an important part of all myths from the Hindu mythology to the Christian. But in the Chinese Zodiac Snake holds a key position of an interesting person, a great seducer, charming and a social person. Snake is known for his charisma and strength in the Zodiac calendar.
Though the Snake has loads of positive attitude, they are prone to dominate in relationships. They are mystical and remain committed to their belief systems.
With high energy and confidence, the zodiacs that best compliment the Snake are Ox, Horse, Rooster, Dog and Sheep. Other animals that can share a cordial relationship are Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon and Rat. At any cost avoid the Monkey or even another Snake. Read all article about YEAR Of The Snake .
