The character of the Chinese Metal Snake

Metal Snakes are known for intelligence, an analytical mind, cautiousness and a helping nature. They usually keep their life private because they’re secretive. It’s possible they’ll be manipulative when wanting to attain success.

Every failure in their life won’t be taken into consideration because they can’t be brought down easily. They love talking and their intuition is always spot on. The absurd and the new always makes them curious.

While not easy to tame them, they still give more importance to feelings than to sex. The mind of Metal Snakes is to the point, calculating and fast. Add this to the fact that they’re very determined and energetic, and you get people with traits that are very helpful when it comes to attaining their goals.

It’s rare that these natives don’t identify a good opportunity or make wrong assumptions. They are always planning to make their dreams come true, in a secretive and subtle way. But they really don’t trust people, even to the point of paranoia.

What the Metal element brings them is more will, which is very useful for the Snakes for they are not able to see how they could make it from time to time. The Metal also makes them more eager to resolve problems when compared to other Snakes.

Metal Snakes know how to invest and to make their financial situation flourish. They want the finest things because they have great taste and love everything relating to arts. Their loved ones will get to see how generous they can be. Meditation and introspection is something they simply love to do.

By far, these Snakes are the most mysterious, elusive and confident ones. It’s easy for them to become paranoid thinking someone wants to take their place at work.

Even when having all they want, they will still be envious and think of others as their opponents. If they would fail, they wouldn’t even accept the idea that they did.

Their possessive and domineering nature is joined by the fact that they don’t communicate. At least, in their defensive way, they are nice and giving. They will know from a very young age what they want in life.

Many will not know what they’re thinking or wanting to do. This means they will have a psychological advantage and always be one step ahead of others. But they can be the most dangerous personalities this sign ever had.

For instance, people should be careful not to deceive them because they can become ruthless when crossed. And the Metal makes them even more vengeful and mean, so expect them to hurt others where it hurts them the most.

They won’t throw tantrums or act recklessly, they will analyze the situation in silence, thinking on how they can get their revenge in the most cruel way.

But this intensity won’t affect only their ways of being negative. There’s also a positive side because they’re very passionate as lovers. Considering how sensual they are as well, imagine how many of the opposite sex will be at their door.

How the Metal element influences them

Metal Snakes are talented people with a precise mind. They’re smart and motivated to succeed more than other people in the same sign. A little bit discriminating, these natives have a tendency to go only after what benefits them and to be loners.

They are fast-acting and reserved, never hesitating to chase a good position. The Metal element in their chart will make them want luxury and comfort even more than normally. Therefore, they will fight hard to be rich and powerful.

Out of all the Snakes, they are the most free and private. Focused and determined, these natives will be even more intelligent with the Metal present in their sign.

It’s important you don’t spend too much time trying to change them because they can be very vengeful and ruthless when annoyed or crossed.

They love competition and are possessive with both people and the power they have managed to gain. Because they’ve worked so hard to reach their goals, they are suspicious everyone wants their position or a bite from their success.

It’s not enough Snakes are not at all trusting, when the Metal comes into discussion as well, it simply turns them into these introverted creatures who suspect anyone of bad intentions.

The natives of this sign and element will be able to stay at a job because they will see the logical advantages of the situation. Ambition is another thing that Metal brings to them.

As soon as they’ll decide what methods to apply and which paths to follow, there will be no one and nothing to stay in their way until they’ll get what they want. The Chinese astrology says that Snakes are lovers of beauty and of the finest things.

They are sensual and enjoy good food, expensive wines and the most interesting art pieces. These are the things they are living for, as a matter of fact. Metals Snakes are all this and a little bit more.
