Sensual Snake

Snakes are never arrogant or pushy about romance. They don't have to be. Everybody and his brother and sister wants to get into bed with a Snake.

By contrast to the lust-mad Dragon of 2012, the Snake is a dignified character - a handsome, elegant sort of person with a knockout wardrobe and posh accessories to match.

Snakes make excellent lovers. They are savvy about their partner's needs and eager to satisfy them. Snakes do a lot of lying down anyway. They also do a lot of musing about sex whilst planning their attack for the next session. Think about it. If you know a Snake person, when she or her is not working, they're usually stretched out somewhere warm on a divan or else they are languishing under a cashmere throw in a chaise longue. Snakes need to be recumbent. So, they think, why not lie down in bed with a delectable sex partner?

Snakes do tend to stray a bit. Not nearly so often or in such a randy manner as Dogs. But Snakes are sooooo alluring and soooo needful of admiration that they will sometimes succumb to flattery from outside their traditional long term relationship. Though not strictly 100% faithful, Snakes are discreet. They don't get the other guy's lipstick on their collars or reek of the heady scent of some floozie's exotic eau de cologne.

Snakes know how to keep their counsel. In point of fact, most of Snakes' extra conjugal escapades happen in remote venues where their main squeezes would never dream of looking for them. Snakes, you remember, are both sultry and cool-headed.

Of course Snakes also have families and are loyal and true to everyone involved. They want to be surrounded because they need the quasi full time attention of any and everyone within 100 kilometers. Snakes are spotlight seekers. And their family is as good as place as any to feel the glowing heat of the footlights on them.

DRAGON - You'll see some seesawing in the romance dept this year. Passions run hot and then cool off abruptly. By October emotions will level off and you can relax. 

SNAKE - Love triangle in February causes tension. Use diplomacy, not force, to discourage the intruder. By October, passion between you and your main squeeze runs hotter than usual. You are adored.
