Chau Gong 16″ with Stand
Venus is the goddess of love, beauty and partnership. She points to the best pathway for social harmony in each of our lives and tells us where we struggle with confidence and self-esteem. She helps us find a strong sense of our own self-worth and value. Working with a Venus Gong can be very beneficial for a soul who incarnated with Taurus prominent in her or his chart. To balance things out, let us also acknowledge that Venus also rules Libra, that balancer, and the autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.
Each gong and gong player is a conduit for the healing energy being created and channeled, and the gong player gets healed by healing. Like Chiron, the wounded healer, your capacity for healing can be increased by your realization of your personal wounds. By understanding one's own inner cosmos, the gong player can better relate to other’s pain, and from there, create greater healings for more.
The movements of Venus may affect you more strongly if you’re born in the second month of spring, the time when new growth is in full swing, when the earth is buzzing and all of nature is beautiful and blooming. Yes, we're running with the bulls here – Taurus – the sign ruled by Venus.
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.
Jupiter is a fun stormy planet with a reddish tint. In Greek mythology a short story of Jupiter is that he overthrew his father Saturn and then split the kingdom with his brothers Neptune and Pluto. Saturn had a more limiting vision of the kingdom that Jupiter.
Jupiter said, “Let’s share the riches, let’s share the love, let’s expand, Dad!”
The Paiste Jupiter Gong is always ready to play to lead you towards your highest fulfillment and happiness.
Since ancient times Saturn has been associated with Capricorn. The thinking of usefulness is very closely related to Saturn. It supports the ability for concentration, the general process of gaining consciousness and shows very clearly karmic connections. It brings structure and order.
Allow the Paiste Saturn Gong to help you awaken your consciousness and focus your concentration to your work at hand — the work that you in the fullness of your being bring to the Universe.
