Chinese astrologists provide their interpretation of the Year of the Snake, and I have my own:
Snakes are adaptive to land and lake, active night and day, and consume mammal, insect, fish or fowl. Utilized wisely, snake’s flexibility promises all things are possible in 2013.
With one eye visible and one hidden, snake smiles, encouraging thoughtful reflection as he bends back upon himself to gain insight. That wisdom will guide right action taken today, yielding great accomplishment at year-end.
Happy Chinese New Year!
