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.
The Earth Gong sounds deep, like vibrations from the womb of Mother Earth. When we play gently and carefully, the choral overtones turn into a beautiful song. The sound transforms from the ethereal to the material realms, tangible and full. It emerges like lava from inside the volcano.
The element of Earth is associated with the plane of material existence, the condensation of spirit into concrete form.
