The astrological sign of Scorpio is ruled by both Mars and Pluto. Dissolving the veil of illusion the energies of this moon open you up for potent growth and alignment with your true heart. As we transition through the time of the thinning of the veils between the worlds at Samhain, the powerful protective and alchemical energies of the Elder tree blend perfectly into this new moon time offering us connection into our ancestral wild magic. All of these energies have been woven into the drum during its birthing.

Reindeer Hide laced on a beeswaxed 18″ Birch frame and an earth coloured leather bound ring, eight crystal drum resonators are created with captive large silver sheen obsidian tumble stones. These are held between the frame and the hide at each of the eight directions, marking the eight Celtic Festivals of the year .

Obsidian is a sword against negative energy and a powerful anchor for keeping you grounded. Highly protective this stone is known for its ability to block, absorb, and transform negative energy. Connecting with Obsidian for dreamwork and divination can bring incisive clarity, an ability to release emotional, physical, and spiritual blockages. Obsidian is also known for clearing ancient traumas, detoxification, and encouraging personal growth.

Silver Sheen Obsidian brings in the mysteries of lunar energies with its ability to mirror the inner being. It is especially beneficial for helping us to see ourselves clearly and without judgement; to understand our behaviours and refine undesirable traits, enhancing patience and perseverance when needed. Silver Sheen Obsidian is a wonderful stone to support out-of-body journeying as it provides a strong connection between the physical and astral bodies and ensures a safe soul return; it is also a soothing, protective stone for those who need help in maintaining firm boundaries.

Ros Simons has been creating sacred shamanic drums for over 18 years, using personally refined techniques and practices that were handed down to her in the traditional way from teachers and mentors.

The drum-birthing process is carried out in ceremonial space, with prayers and thanks given to honour the spirit of the animal, the trees and the stones of the earth that gifted themselves to bring these sacred allies and medicine tools into being. The drum lacing is cut from the same hide as the drum head ~ weaving the spirit of the animal into the drum; the wood, the colours and any crystals incorporated into each drum are gathered through otherworld journeying and guidance from her drum guide, each drum is unique.

Your personal drum will become a guide, a healer, a teacher and a friend, that walks with you on your path, and takes you on a deep journey of other world and inner world exploration.

All of the Shamanic Drums birthed by Ros are guaranteed for two years provided you treat them with love and care and follow the included drum care instructions.

If this shamanic reindeer drum has already found its keeper or you would like a Shamanic Drum similar to this, but unique and birthed especially for you, then you can order a bespoke drum to be made to your individual wishes and birthed with your own prayers and intentions. For more information please take a look at the Commissions Page.

The Reindeer carries a powerful matriarchal energy, immensely resilient and powerful and yet is a gentle spirit and a great healer. Here in these Northern lands, the Reindeer is sometimes associated with the Goddess Elen. In Mongolia Reindeer feature prominently on ancient megaliths carved with symbols. Little is known about their meaning or function; these “deer stones” take their name from the stylised depictions of flying deer carved into the stone.

Reindeer as a totem animal symbolises protection, wisdom, resourcefulness, knowledge, connection, creativity and inventiveness.

All of the hides and frames for Ros Simons shamanic drums are sustainably and ethically sourced.

The reindeer hides come from herds owned by traditional Sami herders in Northern Sweden, the animals are wild culled by their herders in order to make their traditional living and to maintain the health of their herds. Ros buys the hides through a small family run tannery to support and honour this traditional and ancient way of life, ensuring that all of the animal is used and nothing is wasted. All the skins Ros uses in her drums have been a bi-product of another sustainable purpose (killed for food or due to environmental pressures of overpopulation) and would otherwise be wasted; no animal was ever killed just to provide skin for a drum that Ros has created. Drum making can be seen as a reparation, a way of returning some beauty and honouring to an animal whose life has already been taken.The spirit of the animal lives on and is reborn into the drum.

The Wood for the frames is sourced from sustainably managed forests; and the wood for the song callers is personally gathered by Ros and seasoned every year.
