This is the Year of the Snake, in particular the water snake. This Sunday, Chinese people from all over the world will celebrate their Chinese New Year. It is also known as the Spring Festival.

We say good-bye to the celestial dragon and welcome the intelligent snake. Many Chinese people regard 2013 as a good year because it is right after the auspicious Year of the Dragon.

While you may not be celebrating this beautiful holiday, I always like to share the meaning behind the year. In this case, the Year of the Water Snake. The Snake, also called Junior Dragon by the Chinese people, is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 animal signs: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.

A few characteristics of the water snake are being motivated and adept managers.
In this year of Water Snake, snakes can expect to achieve some longstanding career goals with hard work and perseverance. Snake qualities, both positive and negative, will be magnified in this year, so it is essential to keep balanced and take extra care in your health. There will be highs and lows. Therefore it is essential to be grounded, know what you want and who you are and respond, not react.

I find this interesting as I have experienced a few highs and a few lows already this year. The outcome has been interesting. The more I stay in balance, the better the outcome is. I feel that my intention of letting things go for 2013 is exactly where I need to be. I strongly suggest you consider this. In past when my moods swung with the highs and lows I was an emotional mess. Today, while I can still be emotional I can also sit down and talk things through.

Enjoy this year. It is a year to put things into action.

I want to wish everyone celebrating the Chinese New Year a good year for 2013. Enjoy the moments with family and friends.

All my love,
