Year of Snake: Snake is the symbol of the 2013 Chinese New Year

February 1, 2013 § Leave a comment

The snake is the symbol of the 2013 Chinese New Year, which is the 10th of February. The Snake Jewelry in the Ark Collection of animal charms are made of polished sterling silver, lustrous 18-karat matte gold-plated brass, antiqued sterling silver plated brass, and matte raw brass, and strive to capture the organized, intelligent, intuitive, and elegant snake in a contemporary, silhouetted form. The Chinese believe the animal ruling one’s birth year has a profound influence on personality, and destiny. The saying is: ‘This animal hides in your heart.’

According to Chinese astrology snakes are the deepest thinkers of the 12 zodiacs. Legend has it that inception of the Chinese zodiac signs began when Buddha called on all the animals to bid him farewell before his departure from the Earth. However, only twelve animals arrived at his summoning, so those were given a place of honor in a year being named after each. Those born in 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, and now 2013, were born under the sign of the snake. Snake people are born charming and popular. Snakes are spotlight magnets, and they will not be ignored.

We are leaving the year 2012, which was the year of the flamboyant dragon. The dragon is a legendary animal and the symbol of the emperor in China. Together the lucky dragon and the wise snake bring good fortune. The Chinese New Year always begins on the second new moon after winter solstice.
