Personality Traits:

The Chinese zodiac Snake is a sensitive soul, easily hurt, and seeks peace and harmony in their life and environment whenever possible. When it comes to emotional and psychological stability, it is their environment that most contributes to their inner calm.

As such, the Snake personality seeks security in all things, and will turn their efforts and mind to that first and foremost. They are constantly vigilant, always careful to keep the confrontations around them from ever occurring. They will smoothly avoid them to maintain that outer peace.


The Snake sign‘s vulnerability allows them to feel out the sensitivities of those around them, knowing their attitudes and how to act to prevent certain reactions among them. They act with caution, and are adept at smoothing over troubled waters as a practice of their everyday life. They are excellent facilitators of communication, as they will let everyone have the opportunity to state their mind.

The Snake traits show they are careful to weigh all the factors in a situation. They make sure that in the end, the most well-balanced direction is the one they choose to go. They also have an amazing tenacity for sticking to the goals they set for themselves. Because of all this, the Chinese Snakes are good hearted, kind, and very easy to love, but difficult to get to know.


The Chinese Snake is a cautious, quiet critter, and this is both their greatest strength and grandest weakness. Their need for those around them to accept them and their life are absolutely important to the foundation of their security. This can make them incredibly paranoid about others’ opinions . And this can be absolutely paralytic for the Snake.

The Snake sign’s desire to not offend can lead them to cling tightly to a certain moral code and do everything they can to conform to what is safe and popular. Snake isn’t good at standing up for themselves, that means conflict, and they avoid that at all costs. Their tendency to deep and contemplative thought can sometimes manifest as being completely lazy, and their cautious nature drives them into inactivity.


In Chinese astrology, the Snake sign is excellent in creative careers. Their attention to detail and comfort makes them proficient at careers that focus on making a space comfortable. Painting, designing, glasswork, decoration, all these are about making a space homey and peaceful, and can make them skillful in the dealing of antiques.

The Snake’s flexibility and feel for rhythm also makes then talented dancers and performers. The innate knowledge of people and the care in their handling makes them excellent in those fields where this is useful. They will be good as psychologists, administrators, or detectives. All of these are useful tools in their toolkit. The one thing the Snake must never get involved with is positions that require them to make decisions. They are no way suited for such a career.

Chinese Snake As A Boss:

The Snake as a boss are an absolute charade. There is nothing in their tool-kit that enables them to take command or handle making decisions. This position would absolutely make the situation unjustifiable, as their make-up prevents them from behaving in the necessary capacity.

With a strong second in command they can be quite effective, as long as they are left to the business of handling people and diplomacy. That being said, the Snakes can serve rather spectacularly in the capacity of second in command. But that is capable with the one who’s actually in charge to be strong minded and willing to overcome the snake’s characteristics of flow.

Chinese Snake As A Co-Worker:

Chinese Snake sign as co-workers are incredibly effective provided that the ones they are working alongside are capable of keeping the Snake driven and on task. They are wonderful visionaries, their intuition and ability to think in the abstract allows them to handle the fuzzier aspects of their work with finesse.

If one is open to keen observation and advice from those that possess the ability to give it, then working with a Snake is absolutely the correct course of action to take. Best of all, Snake as a co-worker is immensely easy to get along with. They’ll always be pleasant and willing to sort out any difficulties with minimal conflict.


The Snakes are very fond of money, because with that money they can build a life of comfort and ensure that their stable base is unshaken. Their spending habits are extravagant at best, seemingly unwilling to spend money on practical things. But at the same time, they will spend a great deal on an art piece or some aspect of comfort for their home.

But don’t think this means a pretty piece will let you take them for a fool. The Snakes have an intelligent sense of an item’s value, both it’s actual value, and it’s value to them. Trying to pull one over on them and find yourself immediately shut down.

Dating A Chinese Zodiac Snake:

The Snake personality will see dating as a central point of their lives, and love to be treated with care and respect. A Snake without love is one who’s life is yet to be complete. They believe in the deep mystery of love and life, and will be drawn in with amazing rapidity by those who embody all of this in it’s rippling sensuality.

The Snake will happily be enslaved by love, and nothing will drive them to soaring heights of creativity and expressions of passion. Nothing driven by love will ever be seen as impossible by the Snake. After all, love is what life is for. Sharing a life with a person born in the Snake Year can be difficult. Their desire for peace and harmony in their home is disrupted by the presence of another, even a deeply desired partner.  


According to Chinese horoscopes, the Snake's sensuality is magnetic to others, drawing them in like moths to the flame. They are genuine, sentimental, and completely in tune with the needs of their partner. They make a study them, learning their ways and inner nature, and what ignites their flame.

The Chinese Snake is forever attentive, gentle, and their love is always imaginative. They consider lovemaking to be a form of worship of their partner, their relationship, and the very act itself. If you want a partner who will take all the time needed to learn and fulfill your needs and desires, it’s a Snake lover you want.
