Your future as per the the Chinese calendar
In the Chinese calendar, every person belongs to a certain category in Animal signs like they fall under Zodiac signs according to their date of birth. The month and year that a person is born in determines what animal sign he or she belongs to, and this information is easily available on the Internet. Each animal sign has certain characteristics common to them. 2013 is the year of the Water Snake (Black Snake). The Snake is the 6th sign in the Chinese Zodiac.

THERE ARE 12 animal signs. Each sign has friends and enemies that they get along with. The animal sign repeats itself every 12 years, however their element differ i.e. water, fire, metal and wood. According to the Chinese calendar, every year is dedicated to a certain animal which will then be the deciding factor on what that year brings for other animal signs!

Coming back to 2013, since the Snake originally belongs to the metal element, it will bring good fortune to those with similar elements. Those with Water Elements will continue with good fortune in case 2012 has been good for them. Ox and Rooster get along with the Snake...2013 looks good for them.

Pig, Rabbit and Sheep seem to be at a loss since they do not get along with Snake. However, these are generalised and other factors such as elements, our personal birth chart, our prayers and karma play an important role in deciding our life progress as well!
