With a double helping of the Fire Element, the Fire Snake may be the most intense of all the Snake signs. The Fire Snake has high ambition and desires for material success in life. While other Snake types may suffer from indecisiveness, this is not the case for the Fire Snake, who meets the world with great confidence. All those who encounter a Fire Snake can notice their innate charm and sociable nature. These qualities create the potential for the social Fire Snake to be an outstanding leader.
With the ability to be an influential speaker and undying ambition, the Fire Snake has a wide variety of careers to choose from. Careers in politics, law, or business are particularly appropriate for the ambitious Fire Snake. Similarly, intellectual interests and determination could make the Fire Snake a successful scientist, engineer or physician. Paired with lyrical interests, the passion of the Fire Snake has been known to create very successful musicians. This can be seen in the careers of Kanye West and Shakira, who were both born in 1977.
Although determination and passion are the strengths of the Fire Snake, they can also become weaknesses in certain situations. At times, the Fire Snake is uncompromising in their opinions. This quality is made even worse by their unwillingness to share power. In addition, the Fire Snake may be prone to jealousy and suspicion, when their self-centered qualities become too dominant. In order to overcome their shortcomings, the Fire Snake is encouraged to develop an open mind in attempts to understand other people's point of view.
The organ of the Fire Snake is the heart. As the heart is one of the most vital organs, it is important to protect it with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
