2013 is the Chinese Year of the Black Snake or the Year of the Water Snake.
The theme for this year is to make headway in a slow and methodical way.
Chinese New Year in 2013 begins on February 10th. The Chinese Lunar New Year is celebrated at the second new moon after the winter solstice. The winter solstice, which falls around December 21, is one of two times of the year when the sun is at its greatest distance from the equator. It is also the shortest day of the year. Lunar New Year’s Eve is celebrated with family gatherings and festivals. Cities in China celebrate the 15-day New Year season with firecrackers and fireworks.
This 2013 year of the Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create.
