 1977 was the year of snake, also under the same zodiac: 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1989 and 2001.

Wikipedia: "People born in the Year of the Snake are deep. They say little and possess great wisdom. They never have to worry about money; they are financially fortunate. Snake people are often quite vain, selfish, and a bit stingy. Yet they have tremendous sympathy for others and try to help those less fortunate. Snake people tend to overdo, since they have doubts about other people's judgment and prefer to rely on themselves. They are determined in whatever they do and hate to fail. Although calm on the surface, they are intense and passionate. Snake people are usually good-looking and sometimes have marital problems because they are fickle. They are most compatible with the Ox and Rooster."

-You can read the above zodiac forecast but believe you cannot! for Allah has promise that every human being are created equal and own destiny. If it is coincidence ~just let it be.
