JUMP TO YOUR ANIMAL SIGN:
Snake and Rat
The Snake and Rat have a complicated relationship that needs constant care in order to flourish. The two will probably meet at a party, given that they are both very sociable. While the Snake’s brand of sensuality doesn’t make a big impression on the Rat, they do make an intellectual connection. The Snake admires the Rat’s cunning personality, while the Rat appreciates the Snake’s keen perceptions. At times, the Snake will think the Rat talks too much. At others, the Rat will tire of the Snake’s brooding silences. If these two are going to form a romantic bond, they need to make allowances for their different styles.
As friends, the Snake and Rat do better. The Snake is content to let the Rat take center stage, while he or she operates behind the scenes. Both are adept at making money and would succeed in business together. The Rat could develop clever marketing strategies, while the Snake can create the proper ambiance for the venture. The Snake is also adept at hiring people, sensing which candidates will flourish in the organization. The Rat will be content to let the Snake take periodic vacations, while the Rat sticks around and takes care of the day-to-day operations. Sexually, the Snake and Rat are well suited. The Snake knows just what excites the imaginative Rat, and is always coming up with new games to play in the bedroom. The Rat’s boundless energy satisfies the Snake, who yearns to make love for hours. The Rat should be warned, though, that sex and love are not synonymous to the Snake. The Snake has no problem slithering into the darkness after a night of passion.
Snake and Ox
The sexy Snake and the steady Ox can make a match if they put their minds to it. Neither of these signs is looking for a pretty face -- these folks want a partner with depth. The Snake is impressed by the Ox’s patience, and the Ox is awed by the Snake’s intelligence. The Ox will work hard to make a comfortable home for the Snake, while the Snake will find ingenious ways to stretch the Ox’s resources. They can form a happy home, provided that the Snake doesn’t slither into somebody else’s bed. The Ox wants a lover who will be physically and emotionally faithful. While the Snake is steadfast in their affections, this sign has problems sticking with one sexual partner.
As friends, the Snake and Ox get along swimmingly. The Snake chooses his or her associates carefully, and the Ox is one of the few signs that make the cut. That’s probably because the Ox’s strength and courage appeal to the cautious Snake. The Ox is equally appreciative of the Snake’s talents, and often relies on this friend to assess complicated situations. Many times, the Snake can spot ulterior motives that wouldn’t occur to the straightforward Ox. These two love tradition, and have lots of fun throwing holiday parties and observing special rituals together. With regard to sex, the Snake and Ox have a satisfying relationship. The Snake adores the Ox’s slow, sensual approach. Meanwhile, the Ox finds the Snake’s sexy wriggles a real turn-on. So long as the Ox keeps lavishing the Snake with praise and adoration, these two could form a union that lasts a lifetime.
Snake and Tiger
Although these two signs admire each other, they may have a hard time forming a lasting romantic bond. Although both are laid-back lovers of life, each is intent on marching to the beat of their own drummer. That’s fine when the two share the same goals, but when they don’t, problems occur. The steadfast Snake refuses to break their stride for the impulsive Tiger. Nothing enrages the Tiger more than a disobedient lover. Yes, these two are undeniably attractive, and turn heads wherever they go. If one member of the duo gets more attention than the other, though, resentment will set in. It will be a challenge to balance these two giant egos.
The Snake and Tiger fare better as friends. Each admires the other’s courage. Both are fond of traveling to far-flung places, and can have lots of fun taking vacations together. The Snake has a knack for ferreting out hidden beauty spots, while the Tiger is able to get into the most exclusive clubs. When the Snake falls prey to one of their black moods, the independent Tiger should head off on their own. Taking occasional breaks will lengthen the life of this friendship. As far as sex is concerned, these two have some work to do. The Snake prefers slow, sensual lovemaking, whereas the Tiger wants robust, frenzied encounters. If the Tiger fails to meet the Snake’s needs, the latter will find fulfillment elsewhere. This could be a deal-breaker for the Tiger, who prizes loyalty above all else.
Snake and Rabbit
One is bold and the other is timid. The first is extravagant and the second is frugal. The Snake is confident and the Rabbit is anxious. Although these two signs are opposites in many ways, they go together like peanut butter and jelly. The Snake appreciates the Rabbit’s impeccable taste. Meanwhile, the Rabbit is enchanted by the Snake’s ability to make money. If these two decide to live together, they’ll create a beautiful home. The Rabbit will enjoy throwing parties that showcase the Snake’s charisma. In return, the Snake will take every opportunity to promote the Rabbit’s creative talents.
The Snake and Rabbit make excellent friends, as well as lovers. The Snake has no problem bolstering the Rabbit’s fragile ego, and will often do battle with their pal’s enemies. The Rabbit, on the other hand, can help the Snake view emotionally charged situations with cool detachment. The Snake understands the Rabbit’s reluctance to go before the public, and will often act on their pal’s behalf if a crowd is involved. Sexually, the Snake and Rabbit get along wonderfully well. These two like talking about sex almost as much as doing it. While the Snake has no problems expressing their desires, the Rabbit doesn’t feel comfortable with their sensual side. Therefore, the former will help the latter loosen up. The Snake’s method of slow, persistent seduction greatly appeals to the Rabbit, who dislikes coarse displays of lust. Both signs have fragile egos, and need lots of praise and encouragement in order to perform well.
Snake and Dragon
The Snake and Dragon make a wonderful romantic match. The Snake secretly adores the Dragon’s dramatic flair, while the Dragon is entranced by the Snake’s air of mystery. The more the Snake appears disinterested in the Dragon’s exploits, the harder the Dragon will work to win the Snake’s approval. These two love playing cat-and-mouse, knowing that this game always ends in a good bedroom tussle. Granted, the Snake will sometimes tire of the Dragon’s bragging, while the Dragon will breathe fire at the Snake’s pessimism. Still, these two admire each other’s strengths so much that they’re usually willing to overlook their weaknesses.
In terms of friendship, the Snake and Dragon get along very well, too. These two enjoy taking gambles of all kinds: creative, emotional, and financial. The Dragon is naturally lucky, and can stumble across lots of golden opportunities. The sly Snake will work to capitalize on these offers, resulting in doubled wealth for both to enjoy. The Snake’s fragile ego makes this sign extremely jealous. At times, the Dragon might feel crushed by their friend’s iron grip. At times like these, the Dragon needs to breathe fire and keep the Snake at bay, just in the interest of maintaining a healthy distance. Sexually, the Snake and Dragon emit sparks. They both feel an immediate attraction to each other. The Snake adores the Dragon’s fiery passion, while the Dragon enjoys the Snake’s sinewy movements. The Dragon must learn to linger in bed after sex is over, as the Snake enjoys snuggling as much as the act itself.
Snake and Snake
Two Snakes form a very satisfying den. Both feel an innate trust in the other. The normally cautious Snake feels comfortable with his or her own kind. Within minutes of meeting, these two are entwined in a lover’s knot. Onlookers will find it impossible to tell where one begins and the other ends. These lovers are content to lie in bed for hours, just gazing into each other’s eyes. When it comes time to get up and go to work, they magically generate untold amounts of money. The Snake has the remarkable gift of spotting hidden wealth. If there’s a financial opportunity to be had, the Snake will find it. This talent allows these lovers to live a very opulent lifestyle, without seeming to do a bit of work.
As far as friendship is concerned, the Snakes are well suited. Both share an interest in the arts, and may enjoy going to concerts, plays, and movies together. There’s a good chance that these pals possess artistic talents of their own, and may want to collaborate on a screenplay or piece of music. Often, they will work together without exchanging a word, because they are so psychically attuned. Snakes are very jealous, and may prefer to be each other’s only confidantes, rather than mix with a large group of friends. As far as sex is concerned, a pair of Snakes find pure bliss. The two never tire of making love, and often trade roles to keep things interesting. Their bedroom may be a nest of tangled sheets, empty wine bottles, and burnt out candles. When they’re in each other’s company, the rest of the world falls away.
Snake and Horse
The Snake is subtle and secretive, whereas the Horse is brash and straightforward. The first likes to stay at home, the second wants to roam the world. The Snake leads a life of leisure, while the Horse is a diligent worker. Can this couple form a romantic alliance? Yes, with a little work and a lot of faith. These two are extremely attracted to one another. The Snake takes delight in the Horse’s humor, while the Horse likes the Snake’s signature style. Both are very insecure and recognize this quality in each other. If the Snake praises the Horse’s strong work ethic, the Horse will encourage the Snake’s philanthropy. By focusing on their respective strengths, their weaknesses will seem relatively minor.
As friends, the Snake and Horse are distant but amicable. The Snake wants a pal who will stick close through good times and bad, but the Horse is too impatient to stay in one place for long. Meanwhile, the Horse looks for companions who will pitch in with chores, and the Snake isn’t especially interested in relinquishing their free time. If the Snake is willing to show the Horse the joys of being generous with money, the Horse will reciprocate by demonstrating the importance of working as a team. With regard to sex, the Snake and Horse make an interesting pair. The Snake can unveil the Horse’s hidden powers as a lover. In return, the Horse will lavish the Snake with thankful praise. The Snake has difficulty sticking to one lover, but so does the Horse. An open relationship may be the answer.
Snake and Goat
The Snake and Goat make a fantastic romantic couple. Sultry and seductive, the Snake has a big fan in the Goat. This admiration is mutual, since the Goat’s style and charm appeal to the Snake. Although both have different interests -- the Snake is highly social and the Goat is quite private -- these two learn to balance their respective needs. The Goat has no problem with the Snake going off to a large party, so long as the Snake promises to discuss the event in detail when he or she glides back home. These two are highly intellectual, and enjoy swapping observations on the human condition.
As friends, the Snake and Goat are very well suited. The Snake loves to kick back and relax, and the Goat is eager to create a relaxing environment for their pal. Neither one of them will nag the other to work harder. These two are perfectly happy together, and won’t try to reform each other. The Snake can find ingenious ways for the Goat to capitalize on their artistic talent with little fuss. The Snake’s thoughtful efforts win the Goat’s undying loyalty. Sexually, this is an extremely good match. Both signs are very sensual, and will seek every opportunity to slip into bed together. Granted, the Snake isn’t the most loyal lover in the world, but the imaginative Goat will devise ways to command their attention. In fact, the Goat is one of the few partners to whom the Snake can commit their eternal devotion.
Snake and Monkey
At first glance, the Snake and Monkey seem like a good match. Both are extremely clever creatures that like to examine questions from every angle. These two also share an affinity for parties. In addition, they love to hear good stories as much as telling them. While these similarities form a promising foundation for a romance, there are some very real differences with which to contend. For instance, the Snake needs plenty of quiet time to rest and relax, whereas the Monkey craves a constant hive of activity. In addition, the Snake is extremely possessive, which may not sit well with the free-spirited Monkey. If these two are willing to enact compromises for the sake of their relationship, this union could last. It will, however, involve constant work.
When it comes to making friends, the Snake and Monkey fare better. These two love to jabber about everything from books to movies to politics. They’re not afraid to make provocative statements to get a rise out of each other -- in fact, they consider this to be something of a game. At times, the Snake’s penchant for putting forth a perfect appearance will irritate the casual Monkey. At others, the Monkey’s boundless energy will exhaust the laid-back Snake. For the most part, however, these pals get along great. Sexually, the Snake and Monkey have lots of fun. Not only are they both quite athletic in bed, but they also like laughing while making love. The Snake can be quite possessive toward the Monkey, which can create problems, since the Snake is the far more flirtatious of the two! If the Snake learns to play fair, the Monkey will reciprocate with lots of kisses, cuddles, and hugs.
Snake and Rooster
Highly social, yet equally domestic, the Snake and Rooster form a satisfying bond. The Snake’s stylish ways impress the status-oriented Rooster, while the Rooster’s unconditional love soothes the insecure Snake. Granted, the Snake’s subtleties often fly right over the Rooster’s head. Conversely, the Rooster’s straight-shooting approach can catch the Snake off guard. Still, these two adore being together and will work hard to keep each other happy. As friends, the Snake and Rooster form a fast bond. Both signs are very secretive, and sense that they can confide in one another. The philosophical Snake puts the anxious Rooster’s fears in the proper perspective. Meanwhile, the indulgent Rooster won’t be shocked by the Snake’s startling confessions. When the two collaborate on a project, Snakes will find support for the endeavor through their extensive social network, and the Rooster will devise practical ways to do the work in record time.
With regard to sex, the Snake and Rooster have some work to do. The uninhibited Snake needs to teach the Rooster to loosen up. Fortunately, the Rooster feels at ease with this lover, and won’t have a problem abandoning themselves to pleasure with the Snake. The possessive Snake won’t have to worry about the Rooster straying from this union, as the bird is extremely loyal. As far as the Rooster is concerned, however, the Snake merits close monitoring. It’s not that the serpent enjoys breaking hearts -- the Snake is just easily bored in bed. The Rooster would be wise to expand their sexual repertoire in order to keep the Snake’s interest.
Snake and Dog
In many ways, the Snake and Dog are a union of opposites. The easygoing Snake has faith that all will turn out well in the end, whereas the pessimistic Dog is convinced that everything will fall apart. The sociable Snake loves meeting new people, while the brooding Dog prefers the company of a few old friends. When the Snake sees the world as being comprised of shades of gray, the Dog looks at matters in terms of black and white. Despite these differences, however, the Snake and Dog make a loving couple. One of the reasons these two get along is their basic respect for one another.
The Snake and Dog are likely to begin as friends. The Snake admires the Dog’s high principles, and the Dog trusts the Snake’s instincts. These two could meet at a civil rights rally or animal shelter, as they are both committed to helping the underdog. Sometimes the Snake will hiss at the Dog’s hypercriticism, and at others the Dog will growl at the Snake’s vanity. Still, they are more amused by each other’s weaknesses than irritated by them. Sexually, the Snake and Dog aren’t ideally suited. The sensual Snake has few hang-ups, and is highly attuned to physical desires. The conscientious Dog worries too much about their performance, which can inhibit pleasure. If the Snake can teach the Dog to throw off his or her concerns, these two can find sexual satisfaction together. The Snake should know, however, that infidelity will destroy the Dog’s trust forever.
Snake and Pig
The Snake and Pig face many challenges as a romantic couple. Fortunately, both are capable of working together for the greater good. This mutual strength will come in handy when the intuitive Snake rebels against the Pig’s practical methods. It will also help when the stylish Snake despairs of the Pig’s slovenly ways. When troubles arise, the sarcastic Snake should take pains not to tease the sensitive Pig, or resentment could set in. By handling each other with kid gloves, the Snake and Pig can learn to overlook their differences, and embrace their similarities instead. These include a love of luxury, a desire for socializing, and a gift for making money.
As friends, the Snake and Pig have difficulties. The Snake’s secretive ways arouse the Pig’s suspicions. Furthermore, the Pig’s refusal to do anything without compelling factual evidence can drive the Snake crazy. According to the Snake, the Pig saps life of all its divine mystery. As far as the Pig is concerned, the Snake is hell-bent on stirring up trouble. If these two can manage to ignore each other’s idiosyncrasies, they might learn that they can benefit from each other’s company. The Snake can teach the Pig how to become more polished and suave, while the Pig can show the Snake how fun it is to wallow in the mud. With regard to sex, the Snake and Pig make a curious pair. Both love to luxuriate in bed long after making love. In fact, these two may enjoy the afterglow of sex even more than the act itself. However, the Snake should never take advantage of the Pig’s good nature, or disaster will ensue. This affair can’t last if the Snake has been sneaking behind the Pig’s back.
