The Goat Year was very good for many Snakes, who did peak at Super Bowl 50 with Cam Newton and a life performance by Cold Play Chris Martin.
And since February 8 the Year of the Monkey is making it even more funky and dynamic for so many "Snakes" and this was the very first general outlook on 2016 for all Chinese symbols.
in the limelight
German Angelique Kerber has become the new No. 1 in Tennis and she did also win the U.S. Open.
Taylor Swift has dumped her ambitious "Rooster" Tom Hiddleston after only 7 months.
Von Miller signed a $114 million deal at the Broncos and Andrew Luck is the best paid quarterback with a $140 million contract.
Taylor Swift has won a Grammy for the best album of the year and Brie Larsen took the best actress Oscar while Chris Rock had been the star of the show.
Cam Newton made season MVP, but he played bad in Super Bowl 50 against game MVP Von Miller.
Angelique Kerber has won the final against Rooster Serena Williams at the Australian Open.
Chris Martin and Coldplay were performing during the half-time show at Super Bowl 50 for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton while Tom Brady and Gronk got eliminated by senior Dragon Peyton.
Near the beginning of the 2016 Monkey Year striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is leading the German Bundesliga with 3 goals ahead of "Dragon" Lewandowski while the NFL is seeing two outstanding quarterbacks with Cam Newton and Tom Brady.
And perhaps the Snake Year born will see a lot of big wins in 2016 similar to Nigel Mansell, who had won the Formula 1 Championship back in the Monkey Year 1992.
But unfortunately the ruling Monkey sign and the Snake are not the greatest of friends though both share a lot of cleverness.
In fact, the Monkey is way to jumpy and tricky for the mostly slow and cautious Snake, so that problems may arise throughout 2016 when less fortune stars allocated than in the 2015 Goat Year.
Certainly the Snakes will feel requested to speed things up a bit and to even risk some sort of big jumps in their life.
Snakes may feel it, when the crazy Monkey will be throwing sticks and stones at them what usually indicates, that it is about tome to move on.
Courage and confidence will be needed as well as wisdom, what was shown by Lennox Lewis during the last year of the Monkey when "Pig" Vitali Klitschko had entered the highest level in boxing.
At that moment Lennox Lewis had to come up with everything to win the fight against the giant Ukrainian power machine and after this hard fought win the brave Jamaican did retire, what was probably the best move in his life to preserve his health and champion status by simply jumping out of the game.
... the life of a Snake .... The Symbol of wisdom
Snakes are the masters of wisdom and often they are very relaxed and capable. They dread noise and love harmony and sunshine madly.

Rabbit and Dragon year born are often a fine match for male and female Snakes while some other combinations might lead into obstacles right away.
Smooth and gentle are most Snake year who dread noisy folks a lot.
Quarterbacks have to be fast observers and with Tom Brady the Snake sign group is having the best in NFL history. His first out of four Super Bowls he did win in the 2002 year of the Snake, when Clint Stoerner had been with the Dallas Cowboys.
