There is an element attached to each cycle, so you can have Earth Snake, Metal Snake, ect. This year is the Year of the Water Snake. Apparently because snakes shed their skin and represent renewal it is a year for big-ass shake ups, starting in May. These transformations don’t have to be bad, but I ‘m less than thrilled that “Previous Snake years have been marked by the September 11, 2001 terror strikes that killed nearly 3,000 people, the crushing of the 1989 Tiananmen pro-democracy protests and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The 1929 stock market plunge that heralded the Great Depression also occurred in a snake year.”
Right. Imma going to feng-shui the hell outta my house. For this year, “the most unlucky direction is Yellow 5 at Center. Do not have any remodeling in the center area of your house. The east direction is unlucky. The best direction is south”. Good to know, but the astrological signs of the people living IN the house also matters, so you can go here to find out what the “flying stars” have got going on for you. Then you can take that info and go here to find out what’s what. FYI – you have to scroll further down the page to get to the meat of the information about your personal stuff.
For example, I am a White (metal) Dragon, born in the year of Black (water) Rat and I am therefore equivalent to Metal. Because luck is all about balance, this means my luckiest element is Earth (soil). The “luck” scores are like golf … the less the better vis-à-vis the element. Good to know. People who have soil as their lucky element are told:
“It is good. Snake contains Fire and Earth. Fire is the mother element of Earth. So Earth receives the good support from Snake. But strong Water can wash away Earth. That means the opportunity is there. To gain more luck needs more Earth to fight with Water. If you have strong Earth in your birth chart, then you will have better opportunity in 2013. Also, you will have better luck between the change of four seasons, because Earth is stronger during that period.”
As a White Dragon my day/master type is Metal. That means the Year of the Water Snake:
“represents your outlook, performance, speech, behavior, freedom or expression. Therefore, it relates to your fame or reputation. Your social life makes you busier. You will have more opportunities to show your talent. If people accept your attitude, then you should earn a good reputation from them. If people don’t like your way, then people still talk about you, however, negatively. Certainly, taking care of such a busy life will consume your energy when you have many activities with people. Basically, if your Metal is strong, people will give you compliments about your behavior. If your Metal is weak, then Water of 2013 will make you tired. You will not receive too much support from people around you, even though you attempt to please them.
Snake of 2013 mainly contains Fire. Metal is afraid of Fire. Therefore, Fire is related to your pressure, job, career, boss, teacher, police or law. If you are a career person, 2013 brings you more job responsibilities in your position. If you have high score of Metal, then this will be a good job opportunities for you. If you have more Fire than Metal in your birth chart, then you have to prepare to do overtime for your daily work.”
This looks like a good year for me to get a couple more papers out there, doesn’t it?
Hope you all have a VERY auspicious year!!!!
