According to the Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2013 is the Year of Water Snake . The color of Water in Five Elements system is related to Black. Therefore we can say 2013 is a Black Snake, Water Snake or Black Water Snake year. Chinese Astrology is a Balance Theory of Five Elements. Each animal can be converted into Five Elements. Snake contains mainly Fire. It also contains some Metal and Earth. Snake is in the Fire group. Water of 2013 and Fire of Snake are opposite elements. Therefore most of people will experience mix of good and bad fortune.
Water Snake is Fire under Water. Snake is a clam, shy, cautious and low-key animal in Chinese Horoscope. Snake won’t attack its opponent, unless it’s disturbed or hungry. If Fire is not your favorite element, then you should keep a distance from Fire in 2013. Otherwise, if you fool with Fire, then you may get burn.
Snake is a no-limb animal with fork-like tongue. Although, Snake uses its tongue to smell, people don’t like the spitting tongue which is associated with mouth action, possibly argumentation.

2012 Year of Black Dragon was the last year of Wood cycle. 2013 Snake year is the beginning year of the Fire cycle (Snake, Horse and Sheep). If people’s lucky element is Wood, then their fortune will slow down. If the people’s lucky element is Fire, then their fortune will begin to take off. The energy of Wood is on the East side. The energy of Fire is on the South side. The Element’s Luck is turning from East (Wood) to South (Fire) in 2013.
Before predicting your luck in 2013, you have to know what Type of Element you are and what your Lucky Element is from your Astrology Birth Chart. The Lucky Element is the major factor to determine people’s fortune. 2013 is the Year of the Black Water Snake, which contains Fire, Metal and Earth. If your Lucky Element is Fire, Metal or Earth, then 2013 will bring you some degree of fortune. Since 2013 is Water Snake year, people whose lucky element is Water will obtain fortune in 2013. Fire is the opposite element of Water. People whose lucky element is Fire can get some benefits, however, will reach the limitation.
If your Lucky Element is Metal
2013 is not too good. But there is a chance. Metal is the mother element of Water. So Water can weaken the Metal. Fire can melt down Metal. Metal is required courage and strength to fight Fire. In short Water and Fire make Metal weak. Luckily, Water can cool down the Fire. This will release some pressure off of Fire. Fundamentally, 2013 won’t bring significant luck for people whose lucky element is Metal. Luckily, Snake also contains Male Metal, Metal becomes active and strong in autumn. If Chicken is found in the birth chart or Major Cycle, then unexpected positive surprise may come in fall season.
2013 is a good year. 2013 is a Water Snake year. Definitely, 2013 will be a good year for you. Fire in Snake is the opposite element of Water. Therefore, you will feel good luck coming, but it’s not enough. You will wish you had more fortune at the end of 2013. You have food to enjoy, but this is not all-you-can-eat.
2013 is a fair year. Water can help Wood (tree) growing. That means Wood can become strong with the support of Water. However, Wood is the mother element of Fire in Snake. Wood will burn itself for Fire. Wood receives energy from Water and gives away its energy to Fire. That implies the luck of 2013 comes and goes.
If Your Lucky Element is Fire
2013 is a good year. Fire is afraid of Water. If too much Water comes, then Fire has a chance to extinguish. Again, the Earth inside Snake can stop Water and protect Fire little bit. As long as Snake can survive in the Water. 2013 will bring some good fortune in. Note, there may be some challenges to overcome and achieve more luck.
2013 is a good year. Snake contains Fire and Earth. Fire is the mother element of Earth. So Earth receives the good support from Snake. But strong Water can wash away Earth. That means the opportunity is there. To gain more luck needs more Earth to fight with Water. If you have strong Earth in your birth chart, then you will have better opportunity in 2013. Also, you will have better luck between the change of four seasons, because Earth is stronger during that period.
