sname I’ve always found Chinese astrology more interesting that the Western zodiac. I don’t believe any of it, but I’d rather be a dog than a scorpion. So it is with aplomb that we welcome you to the Year of the Snake!  And while I’m a screamer when it comes to snakes, they have been unfairly maligned, all the way back to Adam and Eve.  I wonder if it comes from the days when we lived in trees and snakes ate our babies. Anyway, here are some characteristics of snakes, according to Chinese astrology.  Happy new year to all you snakes out there.
