Those born in the Year of the Snake (1965, 1977, 1989 or any 12 years before or after) will learn that the more they work, the more they will be paid. Even though Snakes will find this year as a challenging one in many aspects, they will also reap the benefits of being pushed out of their comfort zones. Zodiac masters say that taking on tasks with perseverance and diligence will see them earn bigger rewards, whether it is a promotion or a financial return. Chinese President Xi Jinping, (a Snake), will likely find himself busier than ever, but feng shui expert Peter So believes that he will be rewarded appropriately. It is also a year to watch your health, So says. Snakes are another zodiac sign that need to keep a healthy diet and avoid going to hospitals.
