ALWAYS CONSIDER NETZACH & HOD TOGETHER. Netzach: Artist. Beauty. & Hod: Scientist. Truth. Netzach and Hod represent the force and form aspects of astral consciousness respectively.
Hod then, may be taken as representing Chokmah and Chesed upon a lower arc, even as Netzach represents Binah and Geburah.
Netzach represents the force aspect, and Hod the form aspect of the Akasha.
In the sphere of Hod are performed all manner of magical operations in which the intellect istelf is brought to bear upon these tenuous and fleeting images to give them form and permanency. In the sphere of Netzach magical operations do not take place to any great degree; all god-forms in Netzach are worshipped by means of the arts, not conceived by the means of philosophies. Nevertheless, for all practical purposes it is impossible to separate the activities of Hod and Netzach, which are a functional pair. Form transmutes up and down the Pillar of Severity.
