Individual animal sign luck prediction for the Year of the Snake – by Edgar Lok Tin Yung – Dec 2012

In this part, it is the Man Luck prediction. Man luck is about each and everyone of us how we do in 2013 the year of the Snake.

Animal sign is calculated by the year of birth.

A very important concept to remember is that FULL Chinese Astrology reading examines NOT only the year of birth but also the Month, the Day and the birth hour. It is difficult to completely and fully predict just by using the animal signs or Chinese zodiac signs on how each year will affect each person individually at a very details level. Such animal sign astrology is not totally reliable as the system is only examined 12.5% (1/8) or in some cases 25% (1/4) of the four pillars natal chart.

Furthermore, the animal signs astrology prediction does not automatically start on the Chinese New Year day. It starts at the individual’s birthday.  For example, a person was born in July 1980 (year of the Monkey), the year of the Snake starts on this person’s birthday in 2013 and ends at next birthday July in 2014. It is like an insurance policy calculation – always starts on the birthday of the year.

For more reliable assessment in all aspects of your life, it is recommended that to check your Four Pillars of Destiny fully with a reputable Chinese Astrology consultant near you.

Based on the yearly heavenly stem and earthly branch, some animal signs are more sensitive than the others. The most sensitive animal signs affecting by the Grand Duke or Tai Sui (太歲) in 2013 the year of the Snake are the animal signs below:

The Heavenly Stem for 2013 year of the Snake is Yin Water Gui (癸).

In health issue, Fire element could be circulation system, small intestines, and eyes including iris and cornea, and hearts problems. If there were more clashes and penalty with Day Master in the Four Pillars natal chart, it may be a heart attack or eyes problems signal.

The Si (巳Snake) is part of the Xun Gwa (巽卦) and it is soft Wood element. It is related to the soft wood system in our body including, hair, the liver, the gall bladder, arms, legs and the back. The Yin fire element brings issues more for female.

For all animal signs firstly, as wood element is the bridge element for the year (see 2013 prediction part 1 for more explanation), so eat more fruit, vegetables and drink more water.
