Water Rabbit Flower Moon
10 days in May
Arrive on Friday May 5th and enjoy the light of the full moon with a max of 10 participants.
2023 is the year of the Water Rabbit. “According to Chinese Horoscope 2023, following an eventful and regenerating period dominated by the Tiger, the advent of the Year of the Water Rabbit 2023 is a harbinger of gentleness and serenity. Since it is a sober year with an indolent rhythm that begins, rest, truce and intellectual challenges become the main dynamics of this Chinese New Year 2023 ruled by the Rabbit. So, both individually and collectively, it’s time to heal wounds, reacquire inner balance and make plans for the future.”
