TAIPEI (Reuters) - The coming lunar Year of the Snake is likely to smile on South Korean rapper Psy with increased prosperity, but he will need to leave Korea to make money and could risk exhaustion.

As Chinese communities around the globe prepare for the lunar New Year on Feb 1, which ushers in the Year of the Snake, a Taiwanese fortune teller predicted a mixed bag of luck for famous "snake" people around the world.

Psy, who shot to global fame last year with "Gangnam Style" and was born in 1977, is likely to make even more money this year if he continues to travel around the world, though he also faces a few challenges, said fortune teller Chan Wei-chung.

"First, he must take care of his health. Second, he must make good judgments. Third, his career will be helped by people of prominence - but most importantly, he will need to leave Korea and run around the world," Chan told Reuters.

"He will work and receive rewards, but he must be careful not to exhaust himself and become ill, because it could bring disaster to his year of the snake."

Sarah Jessica Parker, who was born in 1965 and is widely known for her role as Carrie in "Sex and the City" television series, will also reap financial rewards, but only if she works for this with her husband, actor Matthew Broderick.

"(A) star shines in her marriage palace, which means by working together with her husband, there are good chances of making a fortune," Chan said.

Love may also shine for singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, born in 1989 - but it awaits her in foreign lands.

"Leaving the U.S. to another country to film a movie, host concerts or conduct other entertainment businesses will bring her good fortune for love," Chan said.   Continued...
