I understand the world goes through a process of Seder hishtalshelut.
So how to understand the union of ZA and Malchut in the world of Assiya?
And how does this happen through the Tzimtzum?

In terms of kabbalistic nomenclature, Olam HaAsiyah, meaning the World of Action, is referring to this material, physical world which we occupy.
The union of Z"A (meaning Zeir Anpin d'Dachar, the male reproductive organ) and Malchut (meaning Nukvah, the feminine or female in general and more specifically the female reproductive organ) is characterized by the actual point of union of the two names, יהוה, which pertains to Dachar, and אהיה which pertains to Nukvah.
The union of the two to be one is the six letter name of G-d, אהיהוה (gematria Lev or heart לב which implies the innermost aspect of that name, which is alluded to in the first sentence of the Torah, with the word Bereshit בראשית, meaning the six letter name created, ברא שית. This follows the explanation in Sefer Raziel HaMalach, also known as Sefer Toldot Adam Kadmon.
The next two words of the first sentence ברא אלהים explain that from that initial state of oneness that contained the potential for all of Creation, there arose and was manifest actual reproduction and diversification by way of male and female and offspring. This also follows the teachings of Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato in Sefer Adir b'Marom.
That the name Elohim arose from the six letter name via the transformation of the striking of stones, meaning (Aleph times Heh) א times ה, (Yud times Heh) י times ה, (Vav times Heh) ו times ה, together with the Kollel is 5 plus 50 plus 30 plus 1 equals 86 or Elohim אלהים.
That this name expands and evolves further to manifest אל״ה- -י״ם as אהיה – יהוה which is 26 plus 21, together with the 2 names and Kollel which is 50 meaning י״ם.
That point of union, which in the six letter name was the innermost aspect of the name represented by only the single Yud-Heh יה, (This י״ה is the concept of Nekudah, Kav, Shetach, the form of the letters Yud and Heh, ( the letter Heh ה whose form is derived from the Miluy, the letters of expansion, of the letter Yud, Nukuda itself (יו״ד becomes the letter ה Heh). נקודה, קו, שטח (In the language of Geometry, Point, Line and Area or Field. That geometry, the measure of the Earth from the Greek root Geo, like Geology and Geography, which is a contraction of Gaia, Earth Mother.) which is the basis of all existence according to the Torah. See Sha’ar HaYichud v’HaEmunah by Rabbi Hillel Paritcher.) is now manifest by two times Yud-Heh or י״ה-י״ה, which in reverse order of the At-Bash transformation is Tzimtzum צ״ם-צ״ם. While אל״ה expands via the transformation of the striking of stones to manifest the Good name אהוה which is gematria טוב and is also ה- (Heh times Vav) meaning Lamed (ל) - א or א-הו-ה which pertains to offspring and is the Roshei Teivot of the conclusion of the first sentence, את-השמים ואת-הארץ.
So to summarize, in Asiyah, this is the union of husband and wife, to be fruitful and multiply, producing children.
Zeir Anpin is the Parzuf which combines the Sefirot from Chesed to Yesod. The six of them.The giving, male energy. The six days of the week. The six millenia of from the creation of Adam.The Kudsha Brich Hu.
And Malchut is the seventh Sefira, the recieving, female energy.The Shabbat, the messianic age.The Shechina.
So Yichud Zeir Anpin and Nukve in Asiya is Yichud Kudsha Brich Hu an Shchinte in this World. Means: an abundance of blessing throgh the unity of G-d blessing and our ability to recieve.
