Chinese New Year water snake/ Slytherin Western Astrology

Feb/ 10 New Moon at 21 degrees Aquarius is the Chinese New Year of the WATER SNAKE

Those born in the year of the snake have qualities of refinement, intuitiveness, gracefulness. They are exciting, dark, calm, stay centered. They are cunning and possessive. In snake years these qualities are strong, very much Scorpio like.

It will be an initiation the House of  SLYTHERIN from the Harry Potter Novel, Slytherin values are ambition, cunning, leadership and resourcefulness.

The Snake is an ancient Matriarchal symbol, not phallic.  The snake year is a time for shedding the old skin which you are outgrowing, which you know instinctively is too small for you.  Snake is a major symbol of transformation,as in the famous OROBOROUS SNAKE biting its tail, symbol of eternity, eternal life, which to me relates to Scorpio.

The 12 year cycle in the Ancient Chinese system is sidereal and based on the cycle of JUPITER which pass through a sign in about a year.

The SNAKE is equivalent to earth sign TAURUS, snakes are totally in contact with the earth.

Jupiter is in Sidereal Taurus now but due to precession, the planet will enter Tropical Cancer at the end of June,Gemini in Sidereal later in the year.

The Chinese calendar is Lunar and the date of Chinese New year changes every year, but it always starts on a New MOON.

Snake years- are characterized by dramatic elements

The last Snake year was the METAL SNAKE in 2001 the year of 911 and the famous Kubrick movie,

1989 was an Earth Snake, 1977 was the FIRE SNAKE, 1965 was the Wood snake,

1953 was the last WATER SNAKE year,

1941 was a METAL SNAKE

1929- the stock market crash was the EARTH SNAKE

1917 was a FIRE SNAKE ,1905 was a WOOD SNAKE

I am certainly not a Chinese astrology expert.

Snakes are worshipped world-wide. IN INDIA, Goddess Vinata was the mother of snakes, a water and underworld symbol. The Nagas- Demi-Gods and their beautiful wives, NAGINIS were depicted as half cobra/half deity.  The Hindu God Vishnu is often depicted sleeping on the serpent of Eternity.

I am thinking about the snake year in a more symbolic, metaphoric, feeling tone.

The snake symbolizes healing. The Caduceus, symbol of Medicine, has twin- {GEMINI}  snakes which is the ancient and modern sign  for Doctors.

SNAKE MEDICINE in Native American tradition is about transmutation. Getting bitten by a poisonous snake is how one gets snake medicine powers. It is the power of creation, sexuality, psychic energy, alchemy, reproduction and ascension.
