Rider-Waite and Thoth Deck Tarot Card Comparisons: 9 of WANDS

In the Nine of Wands, we have , from a practical and material standpoint, the best that can be had from the suit of Fire (Spirit).
Too emphasize this point The Thoth Deck 9 of Wands is called STRENGTH and assigns the Moon to Sagittarius, doubling the influence of the Moon on the Tree of Life which may be seen as "Change is Stability".
The Thoth Wands are now arrows, eight background and One Master Arrow in the center.  The Master Arrow, has the Moon for its point and the Sun as the driving force behind it: Sagittarius, as a path on the Tree of Life, joins both the Sun and the Moon.
The Ten fold flames imply that the force is directed downward, as 10 is the number of Malkuth (Kingdom) and/or the material world.
Symbolically, the Strength of the Union  of the Sun and the Moon, makes all life possible on Earth. Thus, the Strength of the Union between Male and Female, makes all living things possible on Earth,as well as the greater universe.
Thus, it is a clever evil indeed to install the concept of a "battle between the Sexes", for only weakness can be made manifest from such a divisive perspective. Remember, Perspective is everything, when it comes to the creation of Reality.

Nine is also the number of Yesod (Foundation) on the Tree of Life which brings energy back into balance. Therefore, the equal balance of the Male electric and the Female magnetic in our Mind, body and Soul, is a complete Strength that cannot be defeated. The fantasy of "separate" sexes, often doesn't allow full mental /emotional development of our self-identity for this denies the Truth that we are all Androgyny and promotes possession as love. It is the perfect balance of the Female and Male, that makes all of us Whole. We are both Rational (Male-Sun) and Imaginative (Female-Moon); by balancing both, we become Powerful operators of Form. The strong Mind knows that,"everything I see is another way of being Me."

Rider-Waite's 9 of WANDS, sticks to the mundane meaning of  strength after recovery from battle, or sickness. Behind the bandaged,man who is holding his wand/staff/phallus defensively, are the other eight wands standing as an impenetrable fence. The whole card ignores the strength of female and male union, and only shows male force as male phallic wands and a man. Waite seems to have suffered from the Patriarchal indoctrination of his time. Again the process of the occult (Invisible or hidden) in not shown, nor is a greater understanding of self generated. These two are the primary reasons that make me a Reader of the Thoth Deck.

When thrown during a reading, the Nine of Wands implies: 
  • Great strength, power and recovery from sickness.
  • A tremendous inner force that can't be shaken but fear and apprehension will try, without success. 
  • The illusion of doubt may rear its ugly head, but success will prevail.
  • That with the Moon's influence, Illusion is always prevalent, such is the burden of imagination; However, there is such a great strength of Will present, as shown by the Sun as a driving force, that despite the strife and self doubt, the querent will succeed in all endeavors.
  • Imagination may be a burden, but if used properly, by balancing it with rational thought, it is so light a burden that it becomes pleasurable creativity.
  • The Strength of the Fiery balance of Spirit and Body, is all potential and has no known limits.
