Happy Chines New Year.
Stephanie Austin Eco Astrologer writes:
Chinese New Year begins on February 10, 2013 and ends on January 30, 2014. This is the year of the Black Water Snake, symbolizing transformation and the power of the feminine. Black represents the Great Mystery, the unknown, and the unconscious. Water is the element of emotion, cleansing, and nourishment. The snake is an ancient symbol, long associated with goddess traditions, wisdom, and healing. Snake years represent a turning toward introspection, intuition, and dealing with feelings, fears, and self-mastery. This is a year of shedding old skins, releasing what is no longer in alignment with who we are and where we are going. For more, visit http://www.chineseastrology.com/2013snakeyear.html.
