#4 Snake | Lotus Blossom
Spring is here and so it’s the fourth animal of our Tibetan Zodiac: the Snake The Snake is of the Fire element. The Fire element determines a very strong sense of confidence, leadership and a strong personality. People born under the Fire element will be seen and heard; they will be active, social, confident and very capable of holding their own. People born under the Metal Snake (1941, 2001) are secretive and independent with an incredible focus and life-long determination, making them the most powerful, driven signs. Be careful not to step on their tail!
The Water Snake (1953, 2013) is very intelligent and astute like most Snakes, but also great at multitasking. Natural charm and great people skills will draw people to this sign. The Wood Snake (1965, 2025) makes the most of his/her magnetism and is the most approachable and friendly of all the Snakes. While most other Snakes stay quite guarded, this Snake is expressive, creative and communicative. The Fire Snake (1917, 1977) is one of the most intense Snakes, with an exceptional drive, ambition and passion in everything he /she does – good and bad. Earth Snake (1929, 1989). The Earth element in this Snake makes people born under this sign the most tempered and reasonable. Their earthy, practical and dependable nature makes them very capable at managing people and situations, and finding quick, effective solutions to problems.
Lotus Blossom is the color associated with the Snake. A beautiful shade of peachy pink with orange undertones perfect for spring. Lotus Blossom pairs well with teal and blues, as well as orange like our Tangerine , greens and neutrals.
The lotus flower – or the Flower of Life – is considered to be sacred in many parts of the world. Lotus flowers hold a special place in many religions, from Buddhism to Hinduism, and additionally have been important in ancient and contemporary cultures. In Buddhism, lotus flowers represent spiritual awakening, purity and faithfulness. The way that lotus flowers emerge from muddy waters is heavy with symbolism. The act of the lotus rising above, despite challenges, is associated with the spiritual journey towards the light of wisdom. Lotus come in many shades and each color as different meanings in Buddhist symbolism. The pink lotus flower is the most significant in Buddhism as it is seen as the “true lotus” and has strong links with the Buddha.
