Don't expect overnight transformations. At the same time, decisions and contacts you make will bring benefits later in the year. In a crisis you can easily take the lead and win well-deserved recognition.
If you are feeling restless and want to change jobs, September and January are Snake's luckiest months.
MONEY: Your imagination and determination will help put you on the road to financial security. The natural self-reliance of Snake can create problems where shared resources are concerned. Make sure when a family budget is made that everyone is on the same page. Don't be afraid to ask for expert advice.
Around the November 3 New Moon/Solar Eclipse there is a risk you'll spend more than you should on a big-ticket item. Think twice before becoming overextended. Still, be generous with others.
