Ever meet someone so magnetic, you found yourself saying yes to their every request? Chances are, this person was a Snake. Irresistible and charming, few can resist this persuasive sign. Snakes are sensual creatures who love beauty and dress in unique, unforgettable styles, like Sarah Jessica Parker. Everything Snakes do is driven by intuition, and their business instincts are razor sharp. That’s because Snakes understand people, and can spot a winning (or losing) idea instantly.

Psychic dreams are common. Want to keep a secret? Don’t go near this sign. As with Snakes Barbara Walters and Oprah Winfrey, being around them makes you want to spill your innermost thoughts and secrets. Most Snakes aren’t malicious, in spite of their animal association. They are masters of transformation and reinvention, shedding one “skin” to reveal yet another new persona. Generous as they come, Snakes happily share their abundant power with those who respect it.
