The Star

The Daughter of the Firmament.
The Dweller between the Waters

Tzaddi - a Fish Hook.

Its astrological attribution is Aquarius, the sign of the Water-bearer. This idea continues in the Tarot card, which is XVII . -The Star, depicting a nude female kneeling by a body of water, pouring water from two jugs, held one in each hand. Above her are seven eight-pointed stars surrounding a larger Star. The subsidiary title is "The Daughter of the Firmament. The Dweller between the Waters".

This Path is distinctly feminine, joining Venus to the Moon, both feminine influences; and Juno, the Greek goddess who watches over the female sex and was regarded as the Genius of womanhood, is its main attribution. Athena as the patroness of both useful and elegant arts (the arts are the astrological characteristics of the native of Aquarius) is a correspondence; as is Ganymede, also, because of his almost feminine beauty and because he was the Cup-bearer. Ahepi and Aroueris are the Egyptian equivalents.

Its Yetsiratic title is "The Natural Intelligence". The plant of Tzaddi is the Olive, which Athena is believed to have created for mankind; its animal the Eagle, which is said to have carried Ganymede away to Olympus; its perfume Galbanum, and its colour Sky Blue. Thejewel is Chalcedony, suggesting as it were the soft watery clouds and the stars by appearance.
