Netzach(“Victory”) is the Seventh Sefira on the Tree of Life, and thus, the Seventh Path of the Thirty-Two Paths of Wisdom. Its locus is below Chesed, and it is the lowest Sefira on the Right Hand Pillar of Mercy on the Tree of Life. The text of the Seventh Path goes as follows:
The Seventh Path is Named the Secret Intelligence (Sekhel Nistar רתסנ לכש), because it is the shining splendor that illuminates all of the transcendental powers which are seen with the Mind’s Eye through Faith.
Simply put, the Energy of Netzach is overwhelming in its Majesty. Netzach also translates as “Fortitude” or “Endurance”.
Netzach is traditionally associated with the Fourth Day of Creation in Genesis. It is important to know that the verb corresponding to “make” in Hebrew is [AYIN SIN HEH]. This is a little bit different from [BET RESH ALEF] used in the First Verse in Genesis. This means it is a different function, than when God made the Heavens and the Earth. Perhaps the writer of Genesis understood that the Sun and Moon already existed, and the cloud layer surrounding the infant Planet Earth simply dissipated?
And Elohim said, "Let there be luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to separate between the day and between the night, and they shall be for signs and for appointed seasons and for days and years.
And they shall be for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens to shed light upon the earth." And it was so.
And Elohim made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day and the lesser luminary to rule the night, and the stars.
And Elohim placed them in the expanse of the heavens to shed light upon the earth.
And to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate between the light and between the darkness, and Elohim saw that it was good.
And it was evening, and it was morning, a fourth day.
Note that God here is separating things again. There is a pulse, a rhythm, to the Creation as depicted in Genesis. God’s activities are described in a mobile, rather than a static, manner,
The Angels of Netzach are the Elohim (“Judges”); the Archangel is Haniel (“Grace of God”). The Elohim and their Leader are said to be among the most beautiful of all the Angels, which fits well with the appropriate Planet, Venus, Named after the Goddess of Beauty. The God Name is YHVH Tzabaoth (“YHVH of Armies”). The most important Color for Netzach is Green.
In Nova Thought, we would link Netzach to the Stone Principal, Friday, the Muladhara (Base) Chakra, the Number Four, and the Three Stone Runes: Fehu, Othala and Eihwaz. The “Character” is the Guardian. If you remember that the Kundalini Power waits dormant in the Base Chakra, these correspondences make even more sense.
The Four Sevens of Tarot are all about winning.
The Seven of Wands represents Netzach in Atsilut, The indication is that it is Time to stand one’s ground. The “enemy” may or may not be evident, and may even be oneself! There is also an indication that maintaining a “higher ground”, literally or figuratively, can assist, but not guarantee, victory.
The Seven of Cups correlates to Netzach in Beriah. There is an indication that a choice must be made, often between what is real versus what is illusory. One must be ever-vigilant to be able to see the distinction, by seeing “with the Mind’s Eye through Faith”.
