Temper – Cultured and refined, you like philosophical subjects, metaphysical and abstract. You genius can do in 5 minutes what others would accomplish in many working hours. This efficiency allows you to hide your tendency to be lazy. Therefore beware of the time you spend relaxing and basking in the sun.

In China, the Snake is considered a sage.

Work – You are cool, you can effectively deal with crisis situations. Clear and accurate, you do not waste your time in endless discussions.

Love – Your relationships are lively and passionate. You love to hypnotize you and your partners can’t bear being away from you.
