The Snake is often depicted as an intelligent, resourceful, confident and charming character in Chinese astrology. It is believed that people born in the Year of the Snake gain some of this creature's confidence, intuition and enchantment within their personalities. Individuals of the Western star sign of Virgo, also arriving in the Snake's five-year astrological cycle, are thought to acquire some of the Snake's best characteristics. A Virgo Snake usually has charm, confidence, versatility and a quick and deep-thinking mind. Their philosophical way of looking at life often gives the Virgo Snake an intuitive insight and makes them quite patient and kind.
A Virgo Snake is a generally optimistic personality type who is well organized and can easily adapt to settle anywhere. These people never seem to rush anything they are doing; instead, they like to take their time and do things properly. Virgo Snakes are fairly work-oriented and sometimes have to be encouraged to take time off and do nothing. They can take work a little too seriously, and maybe the same with parenting if they have children. These Virgos thrive on responsibility, and their superb resourcefulness helps them achieve. They are often life-long learners who will enjoy studying and acquiring new thought-provoking knowledge.
The Virgo Snake personality can be difficult to coax into a long-term personal relationship. They sometimes think that they do not have enough time to devote to another person, as they imagine themselves too busy. Achieving their life ambitions is incredibly important to them, and many will decide to leave finding a soulmate until later. This usually works fine until they are struck by Cupid's arrow when they least expect it. A Virgo Snake's prior aloofness toward the idea of love and romance is then totally reversed. When they make a one-on-one commitment to another, these personalities will be caring, thoughtful, loyal and devoted partners.
Money and material wealth may seem attractive to the Virgo Snake, but he or she is not bedazzled by it. Their goals in life include being successful, but they do not have to involve financial success. These characters are prepared to work hard for causes they believe in, even if there are no financial benefits. At home, the Virgo Snake prefers neat and tidy surroundings, and loves making a fuss of unexpected visitors. They will be selective in their choice of friendships, and tend to choose and appreciate companions who are on the same wavelength intellectually.
With all their allure and self-assurance it can be difficult to spot the Virgo Snake's personality weaknesses. They normally ooze positive certainty, but can sometimes secretly suffer from a little over-anxiety and are often highly critical of themselves. They tend to keep this side of their personalities hidden from view. Only those people really close to these personalities will be able to recognize the tell-tale signs of undue worry and cynicism. This weakness of their confidence can provoke mood swings and, occasionally, the Virgo Snake's sharp tongue and sly manipulative traits.
