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.
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.
