On February 10, 2013 during the new moon, the cycle of the Dragon year will transform into the year of the black water snake. In general, snakes are considered a Yin (female) animal, they represent wisdom, intuition, cunning, and are very calm, unless provoked, which brings out an aggressive side. They're able to move in any direction, therefore making them very unpredictable. This unpredictable nature will make 2013 a difficult year to plan for. Astrologers are also saying that this year will be a good year for science, research, and academia, because the snake is a "thinker". 2013 will also be a good year for travel, communication, networking, business / finances, and interpersonal relationships.
