Chau Gong 16″ with Stand
Pluto would be the farthest planet from the sun if it were still a planet and was discovered in 1930. Though it is named after the mythological god of the underworld, the creators of myths didn’t even know that Pluto existed. The name came from an 11-year-old girl in England.
In general Pluto is associated with Scorpio. Pluto is very harmonically tuned to the (earth) moon and Neptune. To both of them it has an exact quint-quant relation. Pluto is about 40 times farther away from the earth as the sun and a little smaller than the (earth) moon. Nevertheless it is attached to great importance in recent astrology.
The true lonely plant, cast out from the original order by science who see it as only a rock (egads!), Pluto knows what it feels like to be left out, knows what it’s like to live on the fringe, inside and outside. Moving through signs every 13 – 30 years, Pluto also holds generations within its energy. Play the Paiste Pluto Gong for the transformation of group dynamic, for the little rock that, while not technically a planet, totally rocks.
Via Tone Of Life: “A magnificent range of medium and high tones is derived from this small 22” (56 cm) gong. Played with large and well balanced mallet, we can play on this gong like a drum and a gong simultaneously. This gong plays best as a handheld and is easy and light to carry, weighing only 9lbs (4 kg).
“The Dance Gong is well suited for outdoor ceremonies. It has a special wooden handle on the rope which makes it easy on the hand when held for long periods of time. As this gong is crafted with a tight surface it does not splash easily! One of our best selling gongs.”
The Paiste Synodic Moon gong’s vibration represents the Synodic Month. This is the time between one new moon and the next new moon. It is a time period, it does not mean it is the New Moon Gong, or the the Full Moon. The synodic month (a.k.a. lunar month) is longer than the sidereal. Sidereal = 27.322 days. Synodic month = 29.531 days. (We sometimes get calls from people asking for the New Moon Gong or the Full Moon Gong. These are terms you may hear in various circles, and we have found different circles refer to each gong differently. Paiste does not label either as Full or New.)
This gong of course, falling into the G Sharp range, creates a tone that can excite and raise your energy. Its frequency when calculated and extrapolated into a visual range is an orange: a bright and enthused color. Hence this gong is very good to help you meditate at times, like the Full Moon, when your internal tides are high, but you want to find your center. It is made for meditations during excited times.
As Hans Cousto has mentioned, this gong works very well with healing difficulties and dis-ease with menstruation and related issues. It does work well on various acupuncture points related to this area. But it is not just a gong for women. We also see that it helps cleaning out the second chakra which can hold a lot of emotional and sexual energy that may not be yours, or helps release pain and blocks from that chakra and any other chakras that the second chakra pain is connected. The Synodic Moon Gong can help balance male and female energies, the yin and yang, within your clients.
