They simply draw people in, and Snake people have no shortage of admirers of the opposite sex. It’s easy to spot a Snake, because he or she stands out in a crowd. This is not because Snakes vie for attention, because most of them don’t. Rather, it’s because Snakes are so confident that they never look away from their destinations. They do not care if others approve of them, and they simply radiate the fact that they follow their own rules and impulses, and keep to their own agendas. Snakes are leaders, not followers.
