December 4 - December 10, 2023
The final week of the month of the Pig might call for some compromise, but it is by better understanding the needs of others that you are also getting a better understanding of your own needs. The Snake and Pig are opposing signs and that not only means that things, people or situations that aren't a natural fit are going to be more obvious, but that you are now at the halfway point in your current personal 12 month lunar cycle. Where other months will have given you a free pass, the Pig will stand in your way at a time when there is an opportunity for a reset, opening your eyes to what you need to be aware of.
Year of the Rabbit
Jan 22, 2023 - Feb 9, 2024
For the Snake, moving into 2023 you had the best of both worlds. At the same time that the final weeks of the competitive and professionally charged Year of the Tiger got this new professional year off to a good start and this is one year when sticking to your New Year’s resolutions shouldn’t be a problem, the year also began under the influence of the adventurous month of the Ox. With the month of the Ox and the Year of the Tiger both ending on 21st January, there was time to accommodate both. However, with the next month of the Ox not starting until January 2024, its adventurous influence is something that you might want to hold onto.
Especially as while the Year of the Tiger will end on 21st January, as is the case with every new lunar year it will begin with the month of the Tiger. This will keep the Tiger’s competitive and professionally charged influence going through to 20th February, though in a scaled down way that allows you to transition out of what has been a busy year. While the month of the Tiger will be working to keep the influence from the Year of the Tiger alive, the social and serendipitous Year of the Rabbit will be in charge from 21st January. For the Snake, this is a vibrant year that is all about connecting. After the competitive and goal focused Year of the Tiger, this is a chance to make more time for your human connections.
The Year of the Rabbit, running through to 9th February 2024 has 13 lunar months, which means we will have a leap month, with two back to back months of the Rabbit. The first will run from 20th February to 21st March and then repeating again from 21st March to 20th April. This will be a chance to fully embrace and get familiar with the Rabbit’s more relaxed and socially inclined influence. Meanwhile, one of the most important months of any lunar year for you will be the month of the Snake, which will run from 19th May to 18th June. As always, this is a valuable chance to check in and push the reset button.
About the Snake
The Snake is sophisticated, charming and graceful. They have an uncanny innate wisdom that makes them inscrutable. They are usually concerned with their appearance. Snakes are mysterious and are often drawn to secrecy, the occult and the mystics.
They can be graceful and very beautiful but need to guard against vanity and materialism. With a very intense nature, they can also be quick to take offense and lash out. But this can be tempered with the wisdom and intelligence they can find within.
Although they have the ability to attract money, a Snake is not likely to make their gain in gambling or risky undertakings. Although sometimes stingy, they love the luxuries in life and take great pleasure in good food and elegant living. A snake would rather go without than have second best.
Snakes can be extreme creatures where no middle grounds exist. They are either highly successful or fail miserably. It is either the top or the bottom. The same goes for romantic relationships, if they can't have the "cream of the crop", they would rather remain alone. Snakes are sexually passionate and can be seemingly promiscuous, but that is merely due the secretive quality of their nature.
