This year has great potential
for you, Taurus. 2013 sparkles with art, culture, romance and money. The Year of the Snake is a well-rounded year. In the Eastern horoscope, the Snake is the corresponding sign to Taurus. 2013 can be quite favorable for you as your creativity shines, and you have plenty of opportunities to indulge your taste for comfort and refinement.
Your Earth element helps stabilize the Snake's Water cycle and fixed element of Fire, bringing increased harmony this year. Beauty flourishes around you. You have an uncanny sense of grounding. Your talent for focus and momentum can put you far ahead of the crowd, even if you take time to smell the roses along the way.
You have a generous heart and an old soul. Your instincts are keen, and your tenacity is legendary. You're the one who keeps going when others give up, and you're often the one who succeeds. You're drawn to the natural world, and may have a special bond with animals. You can be tough as nails, but at heart you're a hopeless romantic. You're also more sensitive to negative remarks or criticism than you show.
You're a hard worker and value quality and efficiency. If Taureans ran the post office, today's mail would be delivered yesterday. You may procrastinate now and then, but in general have no patience for laziness. You can be inflexible at times. While this can work in your favor, in the Snake year it's better to bend like the willow than to stand like the oak.
The 2013 Year of the Water Snake is a time of transformation, healing and progress. The Snake also brings intrigue and mystery. Just like the Snake, Taurus, you're full of surprises. Just when others think they know you, you do something that shakes it all up, and you're off blazing a trail through the cosmos while everyone else is milling around in confusion. Good luck comes your way in 2013.

Taurus Love, Romance and Relationships
It's a magical year for love and romance. Casual dating is favorable, and true love can also grow, sometimes when you least expect it. If you're single, you can enjoy a variety of delights. Celebrate diversity, let your hair down and have fun. Your sensual aura is radiant this year, and you'll attract a number of admirers.
If you're seeking your soulmate, this could be your lucky year. Keep an open mind and avoid making hasty commitments. Love will develop naturally, if it's meant to be. There's really nothing you need to do
. Seek your own happiness. Your soulmate will be drawn to your eclectic interests and enigmatic smile, so stay true to your nature.
If you're married or in a relationship, you'll see many improvements on the home front. Relationship harmony is generally good in the Snake year. If you find your security shaken, or if trust is lacking, you may want to examine what you want from your partner, and whether that person is really for you.
You're willing to put a lot of effort into creating and maintaining a good relationship, and if your partner is like-minded, there's nothing you can't do this year. However, beware of infidelity, which can cause upheaval and deep wounds that are slow to heal. Be sure to define your limits, one way or another, and avoid emotional assumptions.

Taurus Money and Career
The Snake year is positive in general for financial growth and prosperity. Wealth has a good chance of increasing as the year progresses. Invest your money in quality and longevity, and avoid major risks. You're usually quite savvy about money, and it's important to know where your money is coming from this year, and where it's going. Planning and awareness are favorable, but insecure investments and high-stakes gambles can be disastrous.
Entrepreneurial ventures fare well for you this year. The Water Snake enhances your powers of intuition, while your talent for stability can help your business grow and prosper. Set realistic goals, and take time for re-assessment at regular intervals. Avoid major makeovers or directional shifts. Businesses begun in the Dragon year can also thrive in the Year of the Snake.
If you're looking for employment, choice opportunities could come your way this year. You'll never have trouble finding work, as you are an employer's dream. You like to keep busy and may be at your best in health care, veterinary medicine, teaching, guidance or counseling, science, technology, research, music, design, legal and paralegal, occupations in the public sector, and charity work. If you're a people person, you can go far in the hospitality or travel industries, but avoid these if you tend to be more reserved.
Job promotion or advancement could come your way this year. You handle responsibility well, and are suited for management or supervisory positions. You may have to persevere to get the plum jobs, but that shouldn't be a problem for you. It's also a strategic year to ask for a raise or job relocation. Your chances of success strongly increase if you can supply cold hard facts to back up your desires.

Taurus Health and Happiness
You're quite body-aware, Taurus, and this is a great asset in the Year of the Snake. No one has to tell you to eat properly and get your exercise. You have an appreciation for good food, and may also have a tendency to gain weight more readily than some of the other signs. You may have one or more food allergies, and these can be extra sensitive in the Snake year. However, in general your physical health is good this year, as the Snake also brings powers of healing and recuperation.
Sleep could be an issue for you, especially if you're at or past middle age. A calm sleeping environment, regular schedule and a routine of meditation or deep breathing before bed can help improve your slumber. You may also be prone to sciatic nerve problems or health issues in the back or knees this year.
Exercise such as walking, water aerobics, full-body stretching, light weights, yoga or ballroom dancing can increase your flexibility and limberness this year.
Your best colors this year for emotional health and well-being include maroon, burgundy, all shades of blue and blue-greens, forest or hunter green, lavender (especially if you're a woman), peach, cream, golden browns and earth tones, brick red, soft pink, and silver hues. Avoid large areas of dark or intense color. If you like reds, soft but vibrant shades such as rose red are lucky for you this year. In Feng Shui, an inauspicious flying star situates at the center of the house/room, so don't use aggressive reds such as scarlet in that area. Airy yellows or orange can expand your awareness and improve peace of mind.
