The sixth Emanation. The temperate force that allows the rest of the Emanations to coexist in beautiful harmony.
Tiferet is without extremes or absolutes. As each other aspect rages around him, he neither yields nor resists. He is the equilibrium that exists between those forces. He is the guiding hand that braces against the many aspects of the Tree to gracefully bring them toward one another.

The yellow orb brings balance to the universe.

Forming the midpoint between Keter and Malkuth, he defines the "pillar of balance." At the glowing center of the Tree and the midpoint between all its relationships, he distributes energy from each Emanation back across its paths. It's a careful balancing act, incorporating such extreme opposites, but this is the nature of the Tree as a whole. Tiferet mirrors the structure of the Tree, existing as a microcosm of the whole.
