Welcome the Snake! This New Moon marks the first day of the Chinese New Year. The Chinese calendar, like our moon circle schedule, is a lunisolar calendar, incorporating elements of a lunar calendar with those of a solar calendar. A lunisolar calendar is not exclusive to China! Hebrew, Buddhist, Hindu, Burmese, Bengali, and Tibetan calendars, as well as the traditional Japanese, Vietnamese, Mongolian, Taiwanese and Korean calendars, plus the ancient Hellenic, Coligny, and Babylonian calendars are all lunisolar.
According to the Chinese Five Element Astrology Calendar, 2013 is the Year of Water Snake . The color of Water in Five Elements system is related to Black. Therefore we can say 2013 is a Black Snake, Water Snake or Black Water Snake year.

Moon Circles sponsored & hosted by:
At FSHL, we seek to connect our community with the planetary cycles that affect us all, even in urban environments, such as seasonal cycles, planting cycles, and lunar cycles. To help our community connect with the lunar cycle, we celebrate the New Moon and Full Moon with community circles. The Moon Circle gathering is family friendly, but kids must stay supervised. These family-friendly events are open to the public and feature drumming, dance, chanting, singing, local artists, healing, and much more. Learn more here...
Please visit the donation drum with a dollar every circle to keep the rhythm flowing and the community growing.
Don't have a drum? No worries, thanks to Remo Drums we have community instruments to share with you.
Its a lot of fun, don't miss out!
