The path of Tzaddi
connects the collective inspiraton of Netzach
with the great
fundamental force for good and evil, Yesod. Tzaddi provides Yesod, the magical link between mind and matter,
with an inflow of Netzach's collective channels and archetypes.
It breaks up the automatisms of Yesod to enable a greater freedom of utopian, futuristic creation,
based on higher principles: It enables the image screen of Yesod to be penetrated
by the purifying archetypes of Netzach.
which refers to the angling of the soul to raise the personality:
"through it is consummated
and perfected the Nature of every existent being under the orb
of the sun". Tzaddi is the process of identifying the ego with higher collective
forces, for instance
through meditation. In this process, the soul is able to overshadow
the ego and contribute to the perfection of the personality.

between heaven and earth. The woman in the card is a physical transmitter
of spiritual principles:

"Every man and woman is a star", a potentially perfect
example, a possible role model. We identify with the heavens,
and they actively identify with us, through the fish hook. This
implies of course a great risk of ego-inflation. For the personality, nothing is easier to
worship than itself. Mental hospitals are filled with former
adepts who believe that thay are some ancient godform. Stardom is not always a modest path.
The message of Tzaddi
is that the process is always controlled by the soul, not by the personality dangling from the
fish hook. Potential stardom is a gift of
the Gods, an inherited process deeply embedded in our natural
spiritual evolution. Therefore Tzaddi is called "the Natural
intelligence". We are born with
a living hope and faith
