The character of the Chinese Wood Snake

The Wood element gives its natives the ability to contemplate and to take action at the same time. These traits happen to be present in the Snake in a natural manner. Snakes will never get involved without thinking, no matter how exciting and interesting the situation seems.

The Wood Snake natives need to be at peace and to think carefully of what their next steps are. They also enjoy pleasure and beauty when on their own. The Wood element helps them to be less self-involved and to want to do things in a more constructive manner.

Unlike Snakes in the Metal and Fire elements, the Wood ones won’t act recklessly and impulsively. But they won’t waste any time either, as this is what Earth and Water snakes do.

Thinking about the outcome of a situation and the efforts required is something they are used to. It’s normal for them to focus deeply on what they’re about to take action on.

That’s why the Wood Snake people will be successful at everything they do. Don’t think, not even for a moment, that they will hurt others in order to get what they want.

The Wood makes them thoughtful about others. Not to mention that Snakes are never annoying, manipulative or deceitful. Wanting to get recognized and being full of ambitions, these Wood natives would still never compete as intensely as other Snakes.

When it comes to their work, they find it difficult to start projects. Luckily, they accept other people’s help and they get things done faster. It’s very likely they will change their jobs or take part-time commitments.

This is because they don’t hesitate to take any opportunity when it is presented to them. They will struggle when others will waste their time, so they’ll succeed when many don’t even think there’s a chance anymore.

Not to mention how much they hate failing and not being able to do what they want. If it will happen for them to fail, they will be depressed for a very long time. At least they are lucky when it comes to money, so they won’t have to worry about what they will do for a living.

They can invest wisely and cash will come to them without too many efforts. As the most caring and generous natives of this sign, they have a good heart, which is rare for Snakes.

The Wood makes them warm and good to people. They seem to have a desire to improve the world and to help others when they’re in need. Even if not driven by high ideals, they will still make friends and be sociable.

Not to mention it’s more likely to see them out with friends rather than at home with their loved ones. While other Snakes prefer to work alone and to have control over the situation, the Wood ones like teamwork more than anything.

One of the things that brings them down is their tendency to express their opinions and to not care about what others think.

The Wood Snakes are idealistic creatures who believe in their own intuition and like to advise others. Many will think of them as too interfering and nosy. But following their advice may be a good idea because they’re intuition often tells them what’s right.

Quick to take on challenges

The Wood element brings stability and strength to the Snake. Less proud than Snakes in other elements, the Wood ones like to think of others. That’s why they will have many friends and a happy family.

Their group of friends will be cheerful and devoted to them. However, you’ll never see them looking for advice or to be supported. They prefer to walk alone, but they will get the help without even realizing. Two of their main characteristics are honesty and kindness.

The Wood makes them more imaginative and caring because this element is connected to their artistic expression. Any Wood sign will want enlightenment, to develop and to become bigger than life. The minds of Wood people are creative and ready to do anything with the end result in mind.

While many Snakes have a defensive attitude, this one is very creative and open to expressing himself. Wood Snakes’ tenacity will be focused on making new relationships and establishing friendships.

Having this in mind, it’s easy to notice how easily they can make friends and deal money. However, you can never see them indulging in life’s pleasures or being complacent.

They will continue to gain knowledge and to take on challenges because they want to put what they have learned into practice. Not to mention how much they wish to improve their life and to help others. This type of snakes can memorize information and analyze situations more easily.

Because they are charming and hard-working, it’s possible they’ll become famous and attract many fans. They want the recognition anyway, so don’t be surprised if they pay too much attention to how they look.

But they will work on their character too. Their tastes are amazing, so they will be great with arts and design. Because they are the friendliest Snakes, they will make many friends with whom they will share impressions and advice.

Some of the life lessons they should learn are about not being so open to making new friends all the time and about being careful not to work themselves too much because they can get stress-related diseases.
