Chinese Astrology Predictions 2008: The Snake

Sep 14 14:12 2008 Duan Minh Print This Article

Chinese astrology is an ancient art which guides people all over the world through fulfillment and enlightenment. Let's see the yearly (2008) prediction for the Chinese sign of the Snake.

A new 12-year cycle started at Feb 7,Guest Posting 2008 with the Year of the Rat according to the Chinese calendar. This important cycle (or era) ends at Feb 5, 2019. It is a 12-year period generally ruled by the universal element of Earth. There are also other elements which rule over each of the 12 years. For example Earth rules over the first and the second year of the cycle (2008, 2009) while Metal rules over the third and the fourth year of the cycle (2010, 2011). The year 2008 is also ruled by the sign of the Rat and has a Yang (male) nature. So 2008 is the Yang year of the Earth Rat. What are the predictions for the sign of the Snake for 2008? This is what this article is all about.

According to my predictions, it is the Snake people who will dominate this 12-year era. This will become pretty obvious during 2013 which is the Snake's favorable year. Snake people are lovers of the backscene and they never stop thinking. This is what they will do during 2008, the year of the Rat. They will use the Rat's leading and dominating energy to leave their mark on every year from 2008 to 2019 (when the year cycle ends). That's what they always do. That is why 2008 is a crucial year for them.

2008 is a good year for Snake people to educate themselves about future events, to read and learn new things that will help them achieve their goals. Snake people will have the magical ability to look into the future of the 12-year era. This is how they will rule. They will know deep inside them that this era will be one of the most important for mankind. They will know they will play a significant part in every major global change. This fact might make them a bit arrogant which is something they must try to avoid.

The element of Earth which rules over 2008 will cause trouble to Snake people making them very rejecting and prideful. It will not help them if they rely entirely on themselves. They should listen to other people's advice before making any heavy decisions. They should work against their tendency to reject advice from anyone but themselves.

The Yang nature of 2008 can make Snake people very discreet and diplomatic increasing their communicative skills. On the other hand it can make them very judgmental and capable of betraying other people. Other signs should be extra careful when dealing with Snakes this year.

Here are my predictions using the five star system. This has to do with the overall positive energy that the Snake will receive during 2008. One star (*) means less energy than expected, while five stars (*****) mean more energy than expected. Three stars (***) mean equal amount of positive and negative energy which is a balanced situation:
