5-Calli As a year bearer, Calli (house) is the sign of day in the tonalpohualli that gives its name to this xihuitl (year). This sign is associated with the direction of the west.

1- Acatl The 13-day period Acatl (Reed) is ruled by Chalchihuitlicue, goddess of lakes, rivers and seas, goddess of horizontal waters. This trecena signifies the transitory nature of all that we may gain in life: it is a reminder to view success and failure, gain and loss, as matters of fate and not as matters of personal worth. The elementals do not reward nor punishment our efforts but, rather, construct the maze within which we might perfect our hearts. The 13 days of this trecena reveal our hearts to us, based on whether we have decided to live within the house of shadows or to seek the secret of happiness elsewhere. These are good days to travel to new places; bad days to hide in fear.

11- Calli The protector of day Calli (House) and the provider of the Shadow Soul or Tonalli is Tepeyollotl, Heart of the Mountain. Calli is a good day for rest, tranquility and family life. Not a good day for participating in public life. Best spent cementing relationships of trust and mutual interests.
Chalmecatecuhtli, is the provider of the Spirit Soul (Teyollia) for days with numeral 11 (mahtlactli-once).
The volatile for this day is the Scarlet Macaw (Alo).
Yoaltecuhtli: Lord of the Night Tlaloc Tlaloc, He Who Makes Things Sprout, the god of rain, lightning and thunder. Het is a fertility god, but also a wrathful deity. He is responsible for both floods and droughts.

Tlaloc is commonly depicted as a goggle-eyed blue being with jaguar fangs. Often he is presented wearing a net of clouds, a crown of heron feather and foam sandals. He carries rattles to make thunder.

Tlaloc was first married to the goddess Xochiquetzal, but then Tezcatlipoca kidnapped her. He later married Chalchihuitlicue. With Chalchihuitlicue he became the father of Tecciztecatl. Tlaloc has an older sister named Huixtocihuatl.

He is the ruler of Tlalocan, the fourth heaven. Tlalocan is the place of eternal spring, a paradise of green plants. Tlalocan is the destination in the afterlife for those who died violently from phenomena associated with water, such as by lightning, drowning and water-borne diseases.
Tlaloc ruled over the third world, 4 Quiahuitl, the world that was destroyed by a fiery deluge.
He is served by various rain spirits called the tlaloque.

In Tenochtitlan, ancient Mexico City, half of the central temple ("Huey Teocalli") was dedicated to Tlaloc. The other half was dedicated to Huitzilopochtli, the god of the Mexica.

Tlaloc is both the protector of the seventh day, Mazatl (deer) and the seventh trecena, 1-Quiahuitl (rain). He is Lord of the Day for days with number 8 ("chicuei" in Nahuatl). Tlaloc is the nineth and last Lord of the Night.

________________________________________dies Mercurii Mercury's day Woden's day Wednesday mercoledì
________________________________________September (pronunciation) (help•info) is the ninth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of four Gregorian months with 30 days.
In Latin, septem means "seven" and septimus means "seventh"; September was in fact the seventh month of the Roman calendar until 153 BC, when there was a calendar reform from the month of the Ides of March to the Kalends, or January 1.[1]
• September's birthstone is the sapphire. The meaning is clear thinking.
• Its flower is the aster or morning glory.[9]
The equinox named the autumnal equinox in the northern hemisphere and the vernal or spring equinox in the southern hemisphere occurs on dates varying from 21 September to 24 September (in UTC). In the pagan wheel of the year the spring equinox is the time of Ostara and the autumn equinox is that of Mabon.
________________________________________The name comes from the Middle English Wednes dei, which is from Old English language Wēdnes dæg, meaning the day of the English god Wodan (Woden) who was a god of the Anglo-Saxons in England until about the 7th century. Wēdnes dæg is like the Old Norse Oðinsdagr ("Odin's day"), which is an early translation of the Latin dies Mercurii ("Mercury's day"), and reflects the widespread association of Woden with Mercury going back to Tacitus.
In Romance languages it is derived from the name of the Roman god Mercury: mercredi (French), mercoledì (Italian), miércoles (Spanish), miercuri (Romanian), dimecres (Catalan), dies Mercurii (Latin). Similarly, in most of the Indian Languages the name for Wednesday, Buddhavar is derived from the Vedic name for Mercury, Buddha. Buddh is also used in Urdu. Russian does not use pagan names but instead uses sredá, meaning "middle," similar to the German Mittwoch. Likewise, Portuguese uses the word quarta-feira, meaning "fourth day" (literally it means "fourth fair", that comes from the latin "feria quarta" - "feria" original meaning is "celebration" - it was so the fourth day of celebration of the week, because all days were days of celebrating God (the name was created by Pope Silvester I, Christian leader between 314-335AD). While in Greek the word is Tetarti(Τετάρτη) meaning simply "fourth." Similarly, Arabic أربعاء means "fourth" and Persian چهارشنبه means "fourth after Sabbath."
The astrological sign of the planet Mercury represents Wednesday -- Dies Mercurii to the Romans, with similar names in Latin-derived languages, such as the French Mercredi and the Spanish Miércoles. In English, this became "Woden's Day", since the Roman god Mercury was identified with Woden in northern Europe.

________________________________________Virgo (The Virgin) (mutable, earth, social): There is some debate in regards to a modern ruler of this sign with Chiron, Pallas, Vesta and Ceres often considered candidate by some modern astrologers, but the planet Mercury is typically used as the default by tradition pending a consensus among modern practitioners; but no one knows if or when this will be. The tropical duration of Virgo is August 23 to September 22.

________________________________________Earth Signs--Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn—
________________________________________In astrology, the mutable signs (also called common signs or bicorporal or double-bodied signs) are a subgroup of the zodiac. They are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The mutable signs straddle two temperate zone seasons, encompassing an inherent duality in its symbolism.
________________________________________In the tropical zodiac, mutable signs coincide with the times of change in the seasons. They are associated with change and versatility. Individuals born under the four mutable quality signs are thought to be adaptable, impressionable, sharp, sympathetic, communicative, resourceful and restless, with a gift for seeing both sides of a situation at the same time and an immense desire for knowledge, variety and new ideas. They supposedly adapt very well to new situations, possess much flexibility, seldom have any particular agenda and are perfectly happy to fill in an assigned role. However, they are also said to be inconsistent, changeable, nervous, indecisive and irresponsible, with a tendency to get wrapped up in tiny particulars. There is also a certain duality associated with all the mutable quality signs.
________________________________________Interpersonal Signs - Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio - are principally aware of and concerned with others, and sociality.

________________________________________Virgo (Mercury)
Alternatively, some astrologers use the former planets Pallas, Vesta, Juno and Hygiea in their delineations and rulerships, for example Vesta to Taurus and Pallas to Virgo. Some other astrologers believe that the dwarf planet Chiron may be the ruler of Virgo

August 22 - September 22

Those born under this sign are usually slow and cautious, quiet and careful individuals. Bear people are generally no-nonsense types who do not tolerate deceit and insecurity in others.

Birth totem bear is an individual whose outer personality is one of quiet observation. As birth totem bear moves through his/her daily life, there is a noticeable careful study of all he/she encounters and experiences. It is as though the intention is to sift and sort through all of the stimuli and input that the conscious mind encounters - to categorize and label each person, action and event so that a greater understanding and assimilation can occur. In the wild, bear is an omnivore, yet their diet will consist primarily of vegetarian fare and larvae or grubs. To attain the morsels of squirming grub, the bear must forage around beneath fallen logs and stones, sifting and sorting through the forest debris in order to be rewarded with the treats they so enjoy and that will provide the sustenance that will benefit their physical well-being. Yet birth totem bear will eventually realize that not everything can be understood with the physical senses alone, and the individual soul of another can never be neatly or completely labeled or categorized as it is dynamic and ever changing with that individual's evolvement.
Until bear can come to the awareness that life is ever-changing, and that to attempt to understand the process with the physical senses alone will inevitably (and invariably) lead to frustration, he/she will be stunting their own spiritual growth. Just as bear must rely upon her/his "higher senses" (intuition) in order to prepare for the lean months of winter and to alert him/her of impending threat, so must birth totem bear learn to rely a little less upon "physical evidence" and more upon his/her inner voice and feelings. In this way, integration of mind and physical to that of the emotions and soul can take place leading to the higher intent of bear’s incarnation - the perfection of the soul.

Middle English wodnesday, wednesday, or wednesdai
Old English wodnesdæg "Woden's day"
Latin dies Mercurii "day of Mercury"
Ancient Greek hemera Hermu "day of Hermes"
Woden is the chief Anglo-Saxon/Teutonic god. Woden is the leader of the Wild Hunt. Woden is from wod "violently insane" + -en "headship". He is identified with the Norse Odin.
Mercury is the Roman god of commerce, travel, theivery, eloquence and science. He is the messenger of the other gods.
Hermes is the Greek god of commerce, invention, cunning, and theft. He is the messenger and herald of the other gods. He serves as patron of travelers and rogues, and as the conductor of the dead to Hades________________________________________
The Korean zodiac is identical to the Chinese one. The Vietnamese zodiac is almost identical to Chinese zodiac except that the second animal is the water buffalo instead of the ox, the fourth animal is the cat instead of the rabbit and the eighth animal is the Ram instead of the sheep. The Japanese zodiac includes the wild boar instead of the pig. The Thai zodiac includes a naga in place of the dragon. Due to confusion with synonyms during translation, some of the animals depicted by the English words did not exist in ancient China. For example, 羊 can mean both goat and sheep, but goat is the species that existed in central China before sheep, and goat is the species seen in illustrations, not sheep. Similarly, 鼠 (rat) can also be translated as mouse, as there are no distinctive words for the two genera in Chinese. Further, 豬 (pig) is sometimes translated to boar after its Japanese name, and 牛 (water buffalo) is commonly thought to be ox.________________________________________
Remember that the Vietnamese/Chinese New Year typically starts in late January or Early February so if your birthday falls in those months you may actually belong to the zodiac animal from the prior Julian year. Year: 1965 Attribute: ất Animal: tỵ(rắn) Animal (english): snake ________________________________________
Vietnamese also believe the hour in which a person is born influences that person's life. For instance, the hour of the rat is between eleven o'clock at night to one o'clock in the morning, the time when rats are actively scurrying for food. The hour of the buffalo is from one o'clock in the morning until 3 a.m when buffaloes are fed before they are led out to the rice paddies. The hour of the tiger is from 3 a.m. to 5 a.m. when it is known to finish its search for food. Each two-hour period is therefore designated for a certain animal. So we have from 5 to 7 a.m in the morning, the hour of the cat; from 7 until 9 a.m., the hour of the dragon and this ends with the hour of the pig, which runs from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. at night, the time when you sit down, relax and get ready to retire. What a nice time to be born!________________________________________
The ancient Chinese astronomers called the five major planets by the names of the Five Elements. Venus is Metal (gold); Jupiter is Wood; Mercury is Water; Mars is Fire; Saturn is Earth.________________________________________

Xihuitl:
solar year
Trecena:
13-day period
Tonalli:
day Trecena (13-day period) Acatl
________________________________________
The 13-day period Acatl (Reed) is ruled by Chalchihuitlicue, goddess of lakes, rivers and seas, goddess of horizontal waters. This trecena signifies the transitory nature of all that we may gain in life: it is a reminder to view success and failure, gain and loss, as matters of fate and not as matters of personal worth. The elementals do not reward nor punishment our efforts but, rather, construct the maze within which we might perfect our hearts. The 13 days of this trecena reveal our hearts to us, based on whether we have decided to live within the house of shadows or to seek the secret of happiness elsewhere. These are good days to travel to new places; bad days to hide in fear. 5-Calli1 Daysign Calli
________________________________________
The protector of day Calli (House) and the provider of the Shadow Soul or Tonalli is Tepeyollotl, Heart of the Mountain. Calli is a good day for rest, tranquility and family life. Not a good day for participating in public life. Best spent cementing relationships of trust and mutual interests. Acatl 11- Calli

Trecena (13-day period) Cozcacuauhtli
________________________________________
The 13-day period Cozcacuauhtli (Vulture) is ruled by Xolotl. This trecena signifies the wisdom and freedom of old age; it represents the path of the setting sun. While the way of the warriorpoints to the relationship between predator and prey, this sign points to to the Third Way, which is neither: these are 13 days set aside to perfect the Way of the Scavenger. While the young heart must strategize between offense and defense, the old heart float like the clouds, stooping to earth only to take what no one else wants. These are good days for disengaging; bad days for participating.
Yoaltecuhtli:
Lord of the Night
Xiuhpohualli:
365-day calendar
Long Count:
(Maya Calendar) Tlaloc, He Who Makes Things Sprout, the god of rain, lightning and thunder. Het is a fertility god, but also a wrathful deity. He is responsible for both floods and droughts.

Tlaloc is commonly depicted as a goggle-eyed blue being with jaguar fangs. Often he is presented wearing a net of clouds, a crown of heron feather and foam sandals. He carries rattles to make thunder.

Tlaloc was first married to the goddess Xochiquetzal, but then Tezcatlipoca kidnapped her. He later married Chalchihuitlicue. With Chalchihuitlicue he became the father of Tecciztecatl. Tlaloc has an older sister named Huixtocihuatl.

He is the ruler of Tlalocan, the fourth heaven. Tlalocan is the place of eternal spring, a paradise of green plants. Tlalocan is the destination in the afterlife for those who died violently from phenomena associated with water, such as by lightning, drowning and water-borne diseases.
Tlaloc ruled over the third world, 4 Quiahuitl, the world that was destroyed by a fiery deluge.
He is served by various rain spirits called the tlaloque.

In Tenochtitlan, ancient Mexico City, half of the central temple ("Huey Teocalli") was dedicated to Tlaloc. The other half was dedicated to Huitzilopochtli, the god of the Mexica.

Tlaloc is both the protector of the seventh day, Mazatl (deer) and the seventh trecena, 1-Quiahuitl (rain). He is Lord of the Day for days with number 8 ("chicuei" in Nahuatl). Tlaloc is the nineth and last Lord of the Night.
Chalchiuhtlicue
Codex Fejérváry Mayer
________________________________________
Chalchiuhtlicue (also Chalchihuitlicue, Chalciuhtlicue), "She of the Jade Skirt", or "She whose Night-robe of Jewel-stars Whirls Above", Lady of the Maintenance. As Acuecucyoticihuati she is the goddess of oceans, rivers and any other running water, but also a goddess of birth and the patron of women in labor.

Chalchiuhtlicue is the wife of Tlaloc, the Rain God, and mother of Tecciztecatl, the Moon god.

Chalchiuhtlicue was the ruler over the previous Fourth Sun. This world was destroyed by a flooding.

In the tonalpohualli, Chalchiuhtlicue is the protector of both the fifth day, Coatl (snake), and the fifth trecena, 1-Acatl (reed). Chalchiuhtlicue is Lord of the Day for days with number 3 ("yei" in Nahuatl). She is the sixth Lord of the Night.
THE SNAKE PERSONALITY
The Snake is the astrological companion to the Dragon; the Yin to the Dragon's Yang. However, while sharing many of the Dragon's exotic qualities, the Snake is more restrained, and more refined; insinuating rather than extrovert. Indeed,in matters of taste and style, the Snake admires subtlety, preferring elegance of line to boldness of colour.
Snake personalities often make their way to the top, but they are by no means pushy, using others toget them there. They ensure that they are in the right place at the right time, which means when the right people are there as well.
Snake-types are also adept at giving the impression that they know far more about a subject than they intend to divulge; and while a strict sense of propriety prevents them from telling lies, they are not adverse to double-dealing when it suits them. Fond of scandal, they are not above creating it,vicariously enjoying the frissons of others' disreputable behaviour.
The Snake's ability to gather up information suggests an aptitude for research, detection or academia,all areas which should satisfy the Snake's analytical brain. Social ordomestic activities, meanwhile, will generally need to be tailored to allow for powerful sensuality.
SUMMARY
The Snake is very adept at giving the impression of being profoundly knowledgeable, simply by keeping mysteriously silent. They can advance in society just by instinctively know where to be and when. Deep down the Snake individual is a sensual creature, often feeling caught between what is desireable and what is ethical. They are also fond of gossip, and not above a touch of scandal-mongering when bored!
DEEPER ASPECTS OF THE WOOD SNAKE PERSONALITY

How to read the chart
Elements of personality
You may have noticed the Four Pillars over the chart. Your birthday is represented (reading from left to right: Hour, Day, Month & Year) in a special form consisting of a STEM (numbered from 1 to 10) and a BRANCH (numerals from I to XII).
To each of these STEM/BRANCH combinations (there are six altogether) are attached three Elements. Since there are five different Elements and the total number of occurrences in the chart is twelve, the Elements can never be equally represented. Ratings of two or three, however, are ideal, as an even proportion of the Five Elements indicates a well-balanced and fruitful life.
When there is a rating of two, it is usual for some other Element to have a very high, positive rating. Such imbalances can be countered, however, by striving to develop the recessive qualities of one's character. A rating of four shows where strengths lie, and where success is likely to be found. If a rating is above four, care must be taken not to allow this elemental quality to become overbearing. If not channelled correctly, this potential strength could turn into obsession, unyielding ambition or self-indulgence.
WOOD
represents the creative and caring side of the personality. It is concerned with well-being, as well as love and family matters.
FIRE
symbolises intelligence and enthusiasm, and is concerned with decision making.
EARTH
reveals practicality and reliability. It also signals the ability to pursue a project to its conclusion as well as being a sign of a good physical constitution.
METAL
represents both money and conflicts, showing competitiveness and business acumen. It concerns financial security.
WATER
symbolises communication, whether in words, writing, or travelling. It may also indicate legal matters.
The life cycle chart
According to Chinese astrology, the life span is divided into twelve distinct phases (from conception to burial) known as the "Life-Cycle Palaces". These represent significant stages in life and career, and are as follows:-
VIII Conception I Adolescence IV Retirement
IX Babyhood I Kuan Tai V Decline
X Infancy II Adulthood VI Final Years
XI Childhood III Maturity VII Burial
NB! Kuan Tai (Matriculation) is considered to be the zenith of the chart, and occurs roughly at the age of twenty-one.
The varying importance of the twelve stages in life depends on the impact of Five Forces known as Fate, Seal, Official, Wealth, and Opportunity. The Four Pillars dictate which Forces are assigned to each of the stages.
Each Force reaches a zenith at different times in life (represented by the boxes on a "Life-Cycle Chart") but will actually have some effect on more than one of the twelve phases. To determine the relevance of these Forces, two factors must be considered:
1. The rating of the associated Element will indicate how strong the actual Force is. (If the rating is one, or zero, then it can be virtually ignored).
2. The nature of the Element also gives an indication of the manner in which the Force can be expected to materialise.
The Fate determines the relative positions of the other four Forces and is thus the key to the Life-Cycle Chart. It indicates the moment when the direction of life is settled: a stroke of fortune, or a tragedy, the scale and nature of the change being indicated by the rating of the associated Element.
The Seal represents family and general happiness. At the end of life, it reveals a contented retirement without regrets. At the beginning, it compensates if other forces are weak; and, whenever it occurs, a strong Seal indicates good health and a happy family life.
The Wealth represents riches and material rewards. If it appears around the "Kuan Tai" Palace and its associated Element has a high rating, then the querent is destined to become rich (please get in touch with the author!!). If the Wealth appears at "Conception", this suggests a prosperous start rather than a life in which money will be earned. Alternatively, an individual whose wealth is indicated at "Burial" could be destined to make money without being able to enjoy the benefits.
Opportunity offers that unexpected chance which proverbially only knocks once. It differs from Fate in that is in no sense inevitable, but is entirely dependent on what is made of it. For this reason, it is obviously better for Opportunity to be present during early adulthood. If it appears in infancy, then this indicates the continuation of a strong family tradition; if at the end of life, the chance may be passed on to descendants.
The Official is a rather more abstruse concept, a legacy from the days when China was ruled by the Mandarins and promotion to office depended on the 'Official' examinations. Today, however, it can be taken to meaning all things to do with public office, closely linked with success in examinations, or other 'establishment' spheres, such as politics. Coming at the zenith of the Life-Cycle, at the age of twenty-one, it indicates the promise of a particularly successful career. In infancy, it reveals a natural talent; or at the close of life, the promise of public recognition, or even honours.
CONCEPTION - BABYHOOD
A weak rating - no major effect on this period.
INFANCY - CHILDHOOD - EARLY ADOLESCENCE
The OFFICIAL indicates a natural talent with business and finance.
METAL indicates an accident or surgery.
ADOLESCENCE - KUAN TAI - EARLY ADULTHOOD
A weak rating - no major effect on this period
LATE ADULTHOOD - MATURITY - RETIREMENT
The time when life takes on a new direction, reveals ideas must be put into practise.
Unfortunately, a period of illness is revealed.
DECLINE - FINAL YEARS - BURIAL
FATE at this point indicates a wasted talent, probably intellectual.
Snake Personality

The person born in the year of snake is the wisest and most enigmatic of all. He/she can become a philosopher, a theologian, a political lizard or a wily financier. Such person is a thinker who also likes to live well. The snake - person loves books, music, clothes, and fine food; but with all his fondness for the good things of life, his innate elegance gives him a dislike for frivolities and foolish talk.

They like communicating and like interesting conversations, although if the conversation becomes repetitive their attention may soon wander. It is almost impossible to fix their attention for long talking about the weather. They prefer to focus on new interesting unusual ides and intelligent discussion in general.

These people have a special feeling that enables them to judge situations correctly and so they are alert to new possibilities and when they have an idea of what to and how to do it, they you pursue it persistently and energetically. These people are self-confident and usually don't bother themselves listening to someone else's opinion. But this side of their character has also a negative load. Refusing to listen to constructive advice, they may get into needless trouble. Although it is difficult for such people to take advice, they are patient with others when it comes to give a hand of help, and their ability to look at a problem from a variety of angles is extremely appreciated. When faced with a dilemma snake people as a rule act with speed and conviction, since they believe intensely in what they are doing and rarely waste time or energy on projects lacking in good potential.

It is important to remember that life is not all work and competition. Snake person perfectly knows how to wind down and relax when such opportunity arises. This type of people often makes protective and caring friends. However, their anger can be quickly aroused, and they will soon get back if there is a suspicion that someone has taken advantage of their trust or has hurt those close to them.


Snake Love Affairs

In love, the male snake is romantic and charming. He possesses a sense of humor while the female is usually beautiful and successful. In case person born in the year of the snake chooses a partner, he/she will be jealous and possessive. Even when the relationships are left behind this possessiveness will be clouding the snake's life. Rejection is the worst thing that can ever happen to the snake person. Such people must be received, welcomed, accepted and approved by those with whom they come in contact. Generally they need a lot of security.

It often happens that snake people have one set of rules for themselves and one for their partner and this side of their nature can become a basis for misunderstandings in the future. But, when they are really romantically involved these people are also loving and attentive, stimulating and playful, though it takes time for them to get over their fears or discuss their weaknesses. The best partner for a snake type person is someone who would give him freedom, but it is also important for him to feel secure and adored.


Snake Career

In money matters, people born in the year of snake have good luck; they don't have to worry about money too much, such people will always be able to find couple of banknotes if they need it. The snake person has an ability to read complex situations quickly and then set about resolving them in a quiet, controlled manner. It is much more convenient and useful for this people to work independently, because in this case they have freedom to travel and negotiate on their own terms. The snake people can not stand being limited by others and this is another reason for them to work solo. People born in this year are logical and organized workers and have all the qualities needed to acquire new skills. They also have a very good memory and that enables them to fulfil the projects thoroughly. They are purposeful and getting towards their aim spotting potential troubles and reacting immediately. On the other hand, should they have achieved their goal the snake people usually withdraw to gather their thoughts and rest. But they need not much time to renew their energies and be ready for new challenges.

Positive and Negative Capability

Positive: The Snake can be amiable, compromising, fun-loving, altruistic, honorable, sympathetic, philosophical, charitable, a paragon of fashion, intuitive, discreet, diplomatic, amusing and sexy.

Negative: The Snake can also be self-righteous, imperious, judgmental, conniving, mendacious, grabby, clinging, pessimistic, fickle, haughty, ostentatious and a very sore loser.

A year for reflection, planning and searching answers. A good time for shrewd dealings, political affairs and coups d'etat. People will be more likely to scheme and ponder over matters before acting on them. An auspicious year for commerce and industry.
Solutions and compromises can be arrived at, but not without some mutual distrust at first. The Snake likes to resolve his differences one way or another. If he fails and things cannot be peacefully settlked, then he will declare war.
Looking back into history, we find that the year of the Snake has nevever been tranquil. Perhaps this is becuase it is the strongest negative force in the cycle and it follows the Dragon year, which is the strongest positive one. Many disasters which had their beginning in the year of the Dragon tend to culminate in the year of the Snake. These two signs are very closely related and the calamities of the Snake yearsoften resulted from excesses committed during the Dragon's reign.
This will be a lively time for romance, courtship and scandals of all osrts. A good year to pursue the arts. Fashion will become more elegant and fluid; music and the theater will blossom; and people will strive for a more sophisticated life. Notable contributions will also be made by science and technology.
The venerable wisdom of the Snake will be evident in many facets of our life, particularly in those requiring decisions. Although everything may look refreshingly quiet ont he surface, the year of the Snake is always unpredictable. The Snake's cool and collected front hides the deep and mysterious ways of his nature. It should be noted that once the Snake uncoils to strike, he moves like lightning and nothing can stop him. Similarly, changes that occur during the Snake's year can be as sudden and devastating.
Tread lightly and be more cautious this year. Gambling and speculation is strictly taboo. The consequences will be overwhelming. The Snake is not merciful.
Whatever else happens, the Snake will give us faith in our convictions and oerce us to act and to act forcefully during his reign. This is not a year for fence-sitters.
Diplomatic and popular, the Snake has the sensual art of seduction down. This Sign is an interesting mix of gregariousness paired with introversion, intuitive reasoning paired with savvy business skills. Snakes are considered to be lucky with money and will generally have more than enough to live life to the fullest, regardless of how important it considers money to be; this may be due to the fact that Snakes tend to be rather tight with cash. They're not stingy, they're simply more mentally than physically active. Snakes tend to hang back a bit in order to analyze a situation before jumping into it. Their charming, seductive quality actually belies a rather retiring nature; this Sign is perfectly happy to spend the whole day curled up with a good book and, thus, can be mislabeled as being lazy.
The Snake is somewhat insecure deep down and tend to be a rather jealous, possessive lover, behavior that can end up alienating loved ones. Despite these less-than-stellar tendencies, however, the Snake often proves irresistible and is a generous, loving partner. Slightly dangerous and disarmingly smart, the Snake's philosophical and intuitive mind generally supersedes logic in favor of feelings and instinct. Snakes will rely on their own gut reactions and intuitions before turning to others for suggestions. This makes this Sign a great hand in any business venture, possessing the caution and smarts needed to get ahead.
Snakes are hard workers (when they see good reason to be!) and are possessed of a keen intelligence. Snakes have incredible follow-through, once they get going, and they expect the same from others. Thus, their coworkers and employees had best stay on their toes, lest they anger the Snake and suffer its poisonous bite!
In general, of course, Snakes are generous and genteel, charming and appealing. Snakes must try to learn humility and to develop a stronger sense of self. Once Snakes realize that confidence comes from within, they will finally be comfortable in their own skin.
The Snake (蛇) (also known as the Serpent) is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. The Year of the Snake is associated with the earthly branch symbol 巳.

Born in the year of the Snake



In Chinese mythology this animal symbolizes concentration and inconspicuousness, but nevertheless it may strike purposefully and very suddenly. Others should never underestimate you, although your manners may speak of a passive and calm person. You analyze the situation for a long time, and you act in the appropriate moment. Nothing escapes your sight, and you have a good potential, because you plan in the long run and gather your powers carefully. You never waste energies in projects that are too large to get a clear overview. Intelligence and wisdom are qualities of the snake, and your actions are always paired with effectivity. You avoid disappointments by trusting only a chosen few people. Others may even consider you as mistrustful.
You are a sensible person, and you can definitely rely on your intuition. You rather work with intelligence than with muscles, and you prefer to plan and organize than to work with getting your hands dirty. All jobs that demand your analytical mind, your inner balance and your ability to decide quickly for long-term goals are attractive for you. You don’t like to be on stage so much, you rather hold the puppet’s strings from behind the scenes. No other animal can be as patient as the snake.
On the outside you may seem to be cool and distanced, but inside you are a passionate person with deep emotions. You are not the entertainer, but you are sociable, and you need other people around you. Your moods torture you sometimes. A stressy life full of events and actions is nothing for you. You strongly dislike extravagant looks, small talk or the newest fashion, you prefer the classic style and unobtrusive elegance. You may think rather conservative and choose your clothes and looks accordingly, and you can live with less money. Even when you have enough resources you will not become spendy and rather give your money to reasonable projects.
In your free time you love to read and learn. You dislike gossip, and you choose your words always carefully, you never ramble along. Your humor can be very deep, but cynical, ironical or simply black. You should try not to bear grudges or take life too seriously, a more spontaneous behavior can sometimes help you to move forward. Others may feel you tend to manipulate people. You also use nearly every method to reach your goals.
Nobody wants to have you as their enemy, because you never forget who hurt you, even though this may have happened a long time ago. You patiently wait for the appropriate moment to strike back, and then you are merciless.
As a child you have been serious, tight-lipped and reserved. You cared for realistic goals and did not change your opinion as often as other kids did. In school you were a quick learner and got good grades. You may not have been with a group of kids, rather with some real friends you could surely rely on.

he Snake
Snakes are romantic and charming. They are deep thinkers and always mysterious. Snakes are graceful and soft spoken. They love a good book and appreciate all of the arts. They lean towards all of the finer things in life. Snakes trust themselves above all others and are seldom wrong; but behind a sophisticated front,Snakes are very superstitious!
Snakes are good with money and don't have to worry about finances. Somehow, when money is needed, it appears. In spite of their good luck with money, Snakes should never gamble. They could suffer big losses if they did, but Snakes learn fast. Once they have made a mistake,they never repeat it. They also never forgive you if you break a promise. By nature they are skeptical beings but keep their suspicions to themselves. They are very private and not concerned with the business of others. Idle gossip is not for them.
Snakes can be possessive in their relationships with others.They are passionate but jealous lovers. You can never tell how far Snakes will go to achieve their aims. They are relentless and their computer-like brains never stop plotting.When you anger them, you feel their icy hostility instead of hearing any sharp words. They will bide their time for revenge, so watch out! Snakes are elegant dressers, well-mannered, and always discrete. They always appear quiet and docile, but watch out, they never betray their true feelings. Their moves are planned out well in advance and they will hold their position to the bitter end. They can be evasive, and just when you think you have them, they slip away.
Snakes make good politicians since they can negotiate just about anything. Snakes also have a great sense of humor, and even in a crisis situation, they can lighten the atmosphere. They never lose their spark even when weighed down by trouble themselves. Being pillars of strength,they always maintain their presence of mind during confusion or crisis.
Snakes have beautiful skin. They possess a cool and classic air about them. They love expensive things,too. Snakes save for the real thing rather than buy an imitation. Snakes admire power and surround themselves with successful people. Their many talents and natural abilities make them sought-after as leaders. People admire and support Snakes even if they don't understand them.
Whatever happens, Snakes always strike out for themselves. They know how to use people and situations to their advantage. They are destined for fame and fortune.

If you work in association, show much patience, otherwise there'll be clashes and your words may exceed your thoughts. Vigilance today: vigilance on roads so as to avoid minor accidents, vigilance in the street so as to avoid a robbery, vigilance in your home so as to avoid domestic accidents! No great health problems in view; beware anyway of possible intestinal troubles; in order to digest well, take aniseed tea after each meal. Those whose hearts are tired must be watched over more closely.

What is most interesting with the Snake Chinese zodiac, considering that we are in constant turmoil with money matters, is that the Snake people will never have to worry about money, they are financially fortunate. This would probably attribute to their being vain, selfish and a bit stingy. But in contradiction to these attributes, they have tremendous sympathy for others and try to help those less fortunate. As they are naturally strong in perception and awareness, this enables them to very good at caring for others.
Their being seducers of human beings have been with us ever since. It started in the Garden of Eden. Yet unlike the evil Snake who lured Eve to commit the original sin, the astrological snake is not a demon. He or she is a great oversexed typical human being. Driven to follow through anything he undertakes to the bitter end, since the Snake detest being left in the air. He is decisive and quick.
Snakes are notoriously good looking and like to project the best image of themselves as much as possible. The have elegant and stylish tastes in clothes. The men are sexy and have always a bit of dandy about them and the ladies are seductive and go gaga over smart accessories. Whether in looks or in circumstances, Snake people have a magical knack in making the very best out of the most mediocre. Although calm in the surface, they are intense and passionate.
This kind of trait has been once and for all been demonstrated in Japan. Those wishing to pay a compliment to a woman and acknowledge her beauty are accustomed to say: "My dear, you are a real snake!"-- a salutation most likely to be misinterpreted in the West.
In love, the Snake male is romantic and charming. The female is usually beautiful and successful. But if the Snake male chooses a partner he will be jealous and possessive, even if he no longer loves her. There is this fear of rejection. They need a lot of security. They are not able to take rejection maturely. Refusing to listen to constructive advice, they may become prone to getting into needless trouble.
The Rabbit, Ram and Dog are in good terms with the Snake, but the Rat and the Rooster are considered pests. The Snake is always compatible with the Ox on condition that the Ox will always be the boss---a condition to which the Snakes accedes. But the Snake should beware of the Boar. The Boar will impose upon him, ensnare and immobilize him. Snake people tend to disagree with Pig, Tiger, Horse and Monkey but as in all relationships, things need to be worked out.
June is the month of the Snake. The Snake's color is red. Their direction of orientation is south-southeast.
As with the Ox Chinese zodiac, with whom the Snake people are compatible with, the elements go this way: Metal Snake - 1941, 2001; Water Snake - 1953,2013; Wood Snake - 1905,1965; Fire Snake - 1917, 1977; Earth Snake - 1929, 1989.

The Snake
The charm of the snake is legendary. A snake can charm, if it chooses, most people it comes into contact with. Snakes are usually attractive and graceful and their admirers don’t generally just ogle them, but fall madly in love with them. Know a man suddenly besotted and pining over an elusive woman? He’s probably in pursuit of a sinewy Snake. They are notorious seducers and are the universal symbol of sexuality, seduction and passion.
Snakes can also be a bit narcissistic. They love to pamper themselves, wear, eat and see the finest this life and world have to offer and aren’t made for any kind of hard labor. They prefer to slither their way through warm waters, lay in the sun, appreciate hours of endless silence and have a profound dislike of chaos. They drape themselves in shimmering jewels, their nails are manicured and if it wasn’t for them, Hermes, Cartier and other fine merchants would go out of business!
Seduction and refinery aside, there is a stillness of spirit within all snakes that allow them to “feel” their intuitions, events about to happen, and the emotions of those around them. They spend a great deal of time thinking profound thoughts and can be very philosophical in nature. They are also natural at ‘new age’ teachings and are often knowledgeable about such topics. These reptilian spenders lavish their close friends and family with gifts but can also be stingy as well on boring things such as utility bills and other necessary and dull expenses. They always seem to have enough money though and rarely go bankrupt.
Snakes can also be manipulative, though not always consciously. They have a way of twisting appearances and words to their favor. Some Chinese view Snakes as out and out liars though for them, it’s more “evasion and omission”.
One of the most important thing to a Snake is security and emotional stability. Routine is perfectly suitable to the Snake and they dislike chaos. Snakes have been known to stay in dead-end jobs and lifeless marriages simply for the sake of security.
Snakes will seduce and strive until they don’t have to. At the point of achieving their goals, whether it’s a secure career or a mate who loves them unconditionally, they can lapse into laziness. They need to be challenged on some level or their sunning on a rock might become permanent!
Snake's Health
The general issues that affects the snake’s health can center around the digestive or urinary tract. Snakes should drink an abundant of pure (no bubbles) water with the addition of cranberry juice, especially for women. Their sensitive nature dislikes chaos and if left to it for too long they can become overwrought, depressed, anxious and nervous. Quiet place and calm people make them feel well and balanced. Snakes do not recover quickly so it’s important they maintain their good health, stick to moderation, whether that be sun, alcohol or anything else that might disrupt their sensitive system.
Snakes are frequently cold and this might be from poor circulation. This is also why they enjoy sitting in the sun but with their fragile skin, this should be limited or at least with a hefty amount of sun screen. They love animals and cats in their lap is a favorite due to the warmth, softness and sense of security.
The best tools to keep the Snake well are peace, quiet and calm days. Stay away from chaos, loud noise levels and erratic people that evoke a sense if insecurity. Feel okay staying home when others are out to play and enjoy that leisurely day to yourself.

To circulate and spread luck and prosperity, please use plants and crystals to help chi flow throughout a room and throughout your house. Dried flowers give off excessive yin energy and should not be used in the home or office. Use live plants as much as possible because they enhance chi movement and, like crystals and hollow bamboo stems, they seem to have the capacity to filter negative sha into positive chi. Remember, FENG SHUI works if you work to make it work. So, give your GOOD FORTUNE a chance to materialize!

General prediction for the Snake
A new 12-year cycle started at Feb 7, 2008 with the Year of the Rat according to the Chinese calendar. This important cycle (or era) ends at Feb 5, 2019. It is a 12-year period generally ruled by the universal element of Earth. There are also other elements which rule over each of the 12 years. For example Earth rules over the first and the second year of the cycle (2008, 2009) while Metal rules over the third and the fourth year of the cycle (2010, 2011). The year 2008 is also ruled by the sign of the Rat and has a Yang (male) nature. So 2008 is the Yang year of the Earth Rat. What are the predictions for the sign of the Snake for 2008? This is what this article is all about.
According to my predictions, it is the Snake people who will dominate this 12-year era. This will become pretty obvious during 2013 which is the Snake's favorable year. Snake people are lovers of the backscene and they never stop thinking. This is what they will do during 2008, the year of the Rat. They will use the Rat's leading and dominating energy to leave their mark on every year from 2008 to 2019 (when the year cycle ends). That's what they always do. That is why 2008 is a crucial year for them.
2008 is a good year for Snake people to educate themselves about future events, to read and learn new things that will help them achieve their goals. Snake people will have the magical ability to look into the future of the 12-year era. This is how they will rule. They will know deep inside them that this era will be one of the most important for mankind. They will know they will play a significant part in every major global change. This fact might make them a bit arrogant which is something they must try to avoid.
The element of Earth which rules over 2008 will cause trouble to Snake people making them very rejecting and prideful. It will not help them if they rely entirely on themselves. They should listen to other people's advice before making any heavy decisions. They should work against their tendency to reject advice from anyone but themselves.
The Yang nature of 2008 can make Snake people very discreet and diplomatic increasing their communicative skills. On the other hand it can make them very judgmental and capable of betraying other people. Other signs should be extra careful when dealing with Snakes this year.
Here are my predictions using the five star system. This has to do with the overall positive energy that the Snake will receive during 2008. One star (*) means less energy than expected, while five stars (*****) mean more energy than expected. Three stars (***) mean equal amount of positive and negative energy which is a balanced situation:

Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve. This could be taken metaphorically to mean that a Snake could never have a problem with his family starving because he is such a great mediator, making him good at business. Or it could mean that a Snake would be willing to sacrifice his possessions, something the Snake has a lot of, in order to pay for his family’s food. Any way it is interpreted is representative of the Snake’s character and is a measure of the value he puts on his material wealth. The Snake is keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise.

THE METAL SNAKE 1941 AND 2001
Metal Snakes are extremely willful individuals who will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. These people will have their guards up 24-hours a day in order to protect themselves from any failure or possibility of it. They place a great deal of importance on money, but are more concerned with the possessions their finances can bring them. They are in and out so sharply and so silently that they are often unheard and unseen. You must be careful with these Snakes because, although they can be generous, they are always out for number one.

THE WATER SNAKE 1953 AND 2013
Water Snakes are influential and insightful. They manage others well and tend to be good for organizations to utilize as staff. They are quite motivated and intellectual, very determined and resolute about success. They will have what they desire, despite the conclusion or outcome they generate because it is worth it to them to not only be recognized for their efforts, but to be rewarded as well. They are affectionate with their families and friends but do not show this side of their personality to colleagues or business partners.

THE WOOD SNAKE 1905 AND 1965
The element of Wood, like in most Animal Signs, gives the Snake a bit of solidity and foundation. Wood Snakes are not as self-preserving as the rest of them, as vanity is not really his style. These Snakes have a stable group of friends and family to hang out with and love each of these people quite deeply. However, it is rare that the Snake utilize his group of loved ones for advice or listening, often opting to go at it alone. Kindness and genuity are two of this Snake’s greatest characteristics.

THE FIRE SNAKE 1917 AND 1977
Fire Snakes can be a bit loud, speaking their minds and smothering you with their opinions. This does add a twist to his dynamic and vibrant character, as he is quite the extrovert. These Snakes have a great wisdom. They are intriguing communicators who leave you breathless after a conversation. Fire Snakes can change even the most obstinate mind with their powers of persuasion, convincing you their opinions or ideas are better than yours. This does make them a little self-centered, but you can’t say they aren’t driven for success.

THE EARTH SNAKE 1929 AND 1989
Earth Snakes are the most relaxed of the breeds. They lead calm lives and offer a down-to-earth appeal to any conversation or outing. This may make them seem more friendly, as you may not feel the need to wonder what he’s got up his sleeve. They may also shun the need to lash out or take risks, but it isn’t from paranoia. They figure their good sense and work ethic will pay off and bring them much fortune and material satisfaction.

SNAKE HEALTH
Snakes become easily stressed and have to avoid hectic schedules or noisy atmospheres. They do not get a rush from adrenaline, instead, a headache. They need calm and quiet to thrive and succeed. A Snake must have sleep and relaxation to live a long, healthy life.

The Snake is very sophisticated and cultured in his choices for home décor. They like muted colors and prefer to have one very expensive chair rather than three reasonable priced ones. The Snake is elegant and graceful and places emphasis on his comfort when deciding what to decorate with. As we know, the Snake must have peace, so you may find relaxation or sounds of nature tapes next to the stereo. Snakes do not deprive themselves of luxuries either, as one of everything never seems to ease his mind. He is materialistic and therefore must have as many of everything, if not more than his friends and family.

THE SNAKE AT WORK
Snakes become bored easily and therefore change jobs quite frequently. They are very conscientious and diligent at work. Since they are such relaxed individuals, they can often seem to be slacking off at work when in reality they are at the height of their creativity. They are organized and precise. Snakes can make lightening deadlines and can problem solve quickly. Sometimes, because they like to work alone, they can seem as though they are withholding information or being secretive about company initiatives.

MONEY AND THE SNAKE

THE SNAKE LOVER
Snakes are beautiful people who exhibit quite a sexual appeal. They are sleek and seductive and if they want you, will out a spell on you that won’t let you stop thinking about them. However, Snakes are quite prejudiced when choosing a partner and don’t just choose based on physical qualities. The Snake needs a partner who can appreciate his quirky sense of humor and his wacky way of handling situations, so generally, although quite beautiful and tempting to approach, the Snake does all the pursuing.

MARRIAGE
Because the Snake is so choosy, he can become jealous and obsessive about his partner. They can be a bit stand-offish with their mates, choosing to push away emotions rather than confront their feelings and insecurities. Once betrayed, you can bank on not ever being trusted by the Snake again as much as you can bet he will get even.

THE SNAKE LOVE PARTNER
Not everyone can live and be happy with a Snake. It takes a patient soul, someone ready for the long haul, who can calm his nerves and deal with his obsessions with skill. Chinese horoscopes are very specific about which partnerships have the potential to be successful in love and in business.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
