Lunar years of the Snake are 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001 and 2013.

I’m not a grave believer of astrology, feng shui, horoscopes or anything of related sort; I just find their accounts marvelous. It’s interesting how the different accounts for different people and settings are created—with various angles and meanings.

I’m not insanely devoted to read and analyze all of them. I only selected the predictions for my sign—a few which seem sound—and summarized them. If you’re an Earth Snake (born in 1989) like me, then maybe you can benefit and learn from the findings I got below.

What’s ahead for us in the year of the Water Dragon?

Here’s what Chinese astrologers had to say.

The prediction:

For the past couple of years, things were good for you but in this year 2012, your fortunes and luck prospects decline sharply. You will face a tough year as the stars and energies in 2012 are not in your favor. You will encounter misfortunes, obstacles, mishaps, loss and the general bad.

My 2 cents:

I shall strive to overcome and subdue these negative energies. We may not be responsible for the things that will happen, but we are completely in control of our attitude and reactions. The best we can do is to adopt a policy of optimism and joy. I’m a firm believer in mind over matter. Our attitude affects our actions, so choose a positive one!

The prediction:

Your inner chi is unstable and your confidence diminishes. It’s a year better to consolidate than to take financial risks. You should also be concerned with manifestations of accidents, financial losses or obstacles in your path of growth.

My 2 cents:

I shall think things through before making decisions and conclusions.

The prediction:

Health and relationships will be good.

My 2 cents:

I shall thank God and have greater faith. Despite the loads of incoming negativity, if I’d still be empowered with good health and good people to count on, then all of the adverse will be weakened. It’s the people offering up love, silence and laughter that make the days filled with mind-numbing uncertainties and exhausting pain a bit more bearable.

The prediction:

The intrinsic connection you share with the Dragon will create some unique opportunities for you! Your zodiac allies are the Ox and Rooster. They will bring you much luck so mingle with them more often.

With their help and support (especially the Rooster), obstacles will be less overwhelming, good fortune will be multiplied and success shared will be so much sweeter. Your horoscope secret friend is Monkey. This is someone you can always depend on, someone who will stand by you during tough times.

My 2 cents:

I shall stick with people having these Chinese horoscopes more often. Haha. The closest Monkey, Rooster and Dragon to me are as follows:

Happy Chinese New Year to everyone!
