The Year of the Snake is one of re-evaluation. It's a time to revisit, restructure and revise in search of answers and redemption. Success will not result from turning a blind eye when what's required is recognizing harsh reality.
Mistrust, envy, underhanded schemes and power plays can and will manifest during the Year of the Snake if world leaders are not upfront. For those countries, leaders and citizens who have been excessive in the past as the result of any indiscretion or gluttonous act will be brought to a head during the Year of the Snake.
Canada will enjoy a year of plenty as it puffs up and plays a role in foreign affairs. Its operation and the way this country handles money will result in greater stability. However, there may be a rude awakening for its citizens as much of the government-funded programs will be cut. A shrewd approach will favor big business. An unusual, secretive and relentless approach to governing will become more prevalent.
The Year of the Snake will be ridden with unpredictable situations. Fortunately, the Snake brings with it wisdom coupled with a calm and collected approach, but don't let this fool you. The Snake will strike hard and fast.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): This is a great year to negotiate, firm up business deals and strategically advance. Neglecting personal matters may weigh heavily if you don't maintain the balance required to support a happy home life. Innovative solutions should include family projects and vacations. Change can be revitalizing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A year full of ups and downs, never quite reaching expectations but striving to maintain control. You'll experience opportunities followed by setbacks and a need to rely on memory in order to make wise personal choices. A make-or-break period relies on what you offer first and foremost.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Excess is the enemy. You have a busy year ahead that will be demanding and time-consuming. Organization will be key, along with patience and the ability to turn any negative into a positive. Favours will be granted, but you must be willing to engage in charitable group activities.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Bide your time and work hard to secure your place in the universe. As the year passes, you will reap the rewards for your hard work and honesty. Should you fall short of your expectations, it will be linked to your lack of input.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You will be in perpetual need of change, causing personal problems as the year progresses. You mustn't run from responsibility, or you will find it difficult to redeem the losses you incur. Strive to create equilibrium between home, family, friends and your financial future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Impulse coupled with taking on too much will threaten your position. A practical approach to whatever you pursue and a willingness to be a team player will guide you to a bigger and brighter future. Control may be an issue if it stands between you and partnerships with people instrumental in your success.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Explore your options. Make a point to learn and to live life fully. The experience you gain will ensure that you reach extraordinary goals that are filled with unique adventures and a variety of people, disciplines and philosophic beliefs.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your year will be hectic, creative and full of excitement, travel and new experiences. This is a year to learn and to focus on creative goals without losing sight of the importance of friends, family and protecting your assets. There will be no time to waffle or show weakness.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Excess continues to plague you for the first half of the year. Learn to put limits in place as well as to refrain from exaggerating and overreacting. Problems with partnerships will develop if honesty and integrity are not maintained.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Maintaining your status quo is all that's required. You will attract money and find comfort in the relationships you develop. Recognizing who is loyal and who is looking for a way to infiltrate what you have built will be your most difficult task.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Discipline will be required and hard work will pay off. Opportunities to change your lifestyle and to learn and discover new skills and talents that you can utilize to establish a new and better future should be your target.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Personal disruptions due to poor budgeting or decisions must be faced head-on and stifled quickly. More time and effort must be placed on gaining experience and self-improvement that can help you gain ground.
