SOME FACTS ABOUT SNAKE PEOPLE
People born in the Year of the Snake are deep. They say little and possess great wisdom. They never have to worry about money; they are financially fortunate. Snake people are often quite vain, selfish, and a bit stingy. Yet they have tremendous sympathy for others and try to help those less fortunate.
Snake people tend to overdo since they have doubts about other people’s judgment and prefer to rely on themselves. They are determined in whatever they do and hate to fail. Although calm on the surface, they are intense and passionate. Snake people are usually good-looking and sometimes have martial problems because they are fickle. They are most compatible with the Ox and Rooster.
Amigurumi snake is a lovely gift to make for people who were born in June or any the year of Snake (1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025).
