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 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.
