Chinese New Year Horoscope: Forecast for the Snake
Provided by Tarot.com
The Coming Year: The Year of the Earth Ox could be one of your best ever, dear Snake. Your special brand of charm will prove very popular this year, and you should have no trouble winning over potential employers, clients and lovers. You'll even be able to negotiate workable compromises with your enemies. If you don't take financial risks, you will turn a profit in 2009. Although you'll be very busy with work, you'll have a welcome opportunity to kick back and relax in late summer. Take this golden opportunity to shed your skin. You'll emerge refreshed, energized and ready for new projects.

Don't be surprised if you discover a hidden talent this fall -- this gift will put you in contact with a variety of new people this autumn. Old, outmoded friends will fall by the wayside. You simply can't make time for people who no longer meet your emotional needs, and fortunately you'll be able to part ways peacefully. During an Ox year, everybody feels overextended. Treat 2009 as an opportunity to bring your life up to date. As far as your health is concerned, beware of overindulging in rich food and intoxicating drinks. Aerobic exercise like running and swimming will strengthen your heart and improve your circulation.

Love: As far as romance is concerned, 2009 may be one of your best years yet. If you haven't had a serious relationship for a while, that will change between April and June. Keep your ears open for a sensual love interest with a great voice -- this person will engage you in the stimulating debates you love so well. Getting married in an Earth Ox year bodes well for sinewy Snakes; go ahead and take the plunge!

In the event you're already married, devote extra care and attention to your spouse. Go on regular dates together, and be sure to plan one special vacation with your beloved. Leave the kids at home -- the Year of the Earth Ox demands plenty of "adults only" time.

Finances: Slow and steady wins the race as far as finances are concerned this year. Your money problems will ease as 2009 progresses, it's just a matter of being patient. Fortunately, you Snakes are willing to bide your time for the sake of success. If you're thinking of changing jobs, wait until October or November when a friend could tip you off to a very lucrative career opportunity. You'll do especially well in the area of art and design, and you're one of the few signs that could do well in the stock market.

The Year of the Earth Ox favors investments in nuclear energy, high tech securities and education. You could launch a successful business with a well-connected friend, but if you do, you may make some secret enemies. Be very careful of whom you trust with your bank account and personal information ... jealousy can cause people to do some pretty underhanded things.

Snake Career

Your wisdom proves to be most resourceful this year, particularly in your career endeavors. Colleagues will admire your input and your opinion will be well respected among business circles. Your work will take you to new levels in your career, as you may see a promotion or a position change that offers you a direction that is more suitable to your skills.

Be prepared for an outstanding year in your work and don't be surprised if everything you do results in success.

Snake Relationships

The Snake's social life will bring a high amount of satisfaction to you this year, as will your family life. Though you tend to be more of a loner, this year will provide occasions that may bring you out of your shell. You have always been a good listener and you will benefit from being more assertive in social situations. More to the point, you may be thrown into a position to be more assertive, rather than volunteering. Your quick thinking will prove to be most useful. Single Snakes may find the romantic relationship they seek, as romance is favored.

Snake Health

The Snake will not suffer any more than minor health issues, but you may want to watch what you eat and make it a point to exercise more often, as these may be areas that you tend to neglect. Your busy work schedule and social endeavors may make it difficult to maintain a regular schedule of exercise, but you can find time here and there to do something active. This will help your heart and may relive stress from a long work week.

Snake Wealth

The Snake will do well with your conservative approach to spending. You have always been disciplined in your finances and this year proves to be no different. If you maintain your frugal manner, you will find that you have accumulated enough by the end of the year to make a large purchase that you have been planning for a long time. If you are in doubt about a particular endeavor, don't hesitate to receive a second opinion before committing.
