<<Other than the more obvious connotation, is there another way to conceptualize the male/active principal being manifested IN the feminine/receptive?>>

Hi Mark, yes! there is a very complex kabbalistic way of describing it in terms of "emanations of light/energy" from the source and thru the rest of the tree of life, which I only partly understand. The feminine/receptive here would be a "container" for the impulse, the idea etc
In fact that is how the kabbalists would explain failure to properly manifest one's idea: that you failed to create a receptive state in oneself. As Jaq has noted the earth needs time to nourish a new seed, during which we can't see what is going on under the ground, same with our plans and ideas.
A good example of the symbolic representations for the two-- active/masculine and receptive/feminine-- acting together in harmony, are two triangles, one pointing upwards one downwards--the so called star of David.
