We are coming to the end of the Dragon year and welcoming a new Snake year this February. So if you’re pregnant or planning to have a child this year, here are some of the things you can expect if you’re expecting a baby this year of the snake.

According to the ancient Chinese, a snake in the house is a good omen and an auspicious sign as it means that his family will not starve. This could signify the snake’s determination in pursuing success which makes them good businessmen.

Babies born from the 4th of February 2013 to 30th January 2014 will be born under the snake zodiac and water element making them water snake babies.

What you can expect
Snake babies are known to be quieter. They are said to develop into intuitive, introspective, refined and collected individuals. They are also known to be very wise. They are graceful and known to be artistic. Yet, they have a dark nature as well and are prone to keeping things to themselves as well as displaying cunning in relationships.

Due to their quiet nature, they prefer to play alone and do not seek out the friendship of others, making them shy and outwardly timid. You should thus, be patient with your child and help them make friends and learn to trust people.

Snake children are also known to hold grudges and will lash out when picked on, so teach your child to learn to deal with his anger or disappointment with others.
