In the Thoth 9 of Wands, we have, from a practical and material standpoint, the best that can be had from the suit of Fire.
Here the Moon is in the constellation of Sagittarius, doubling the influence of the Moon on the Tree of Life and may be seen as "Change is Stability", the Lunar powers of reflection and illusion acquire great strength in Sagittarius which is a double sided coin.
The Wands are now arrows, 8 background and 1 Master Arrow in the center. The Master Arrow, has the Moon for its point and the Sun as the driving force behind it and represents the dual Divine Creative, a union of Anima and Animus. Sagittarius, as a path on the Tree of Life, joins both the Sun and the Moon; the Father Fire and Mother Water.
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 united strength of the Sun and the Moon, makes all life possible on Earth. Thus, the united strength of Male and Female, makes all living things possible on Earth.
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. Strength lies in union.
Remember, Perspective is everything, when it comes to the creation of Reality. It also pays one to remember, that reality, is not all around us, but what we create as perspectives within our brain.
9 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 tensile 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 a form of love, as one precieves lack rather than whole self, uniting with another whole self. It is the perfect balance of the Female-Anima and Male-Animus within, that makes all of us Whole. We are both Rational (Male-Sun) and Imaginative (Female-Moon); by balancing both, we become Powerful operators of Force and Form, i.e. powerful psychosomatic operators. The strong Mind knows that,"everything I see is another way of being Me."
9 is also the number of Yesod (Foundation) on the Tree of Life, Yesod (Foundation) in Atziluth, The World of Pure Spirit, 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 tensile Strength that cannot be defeated.
Now the world of Pure Spirit is Pure Energy Conscious; a Purity of Mind that isn't known to harbor empathy, doubt, indecision or anything but the purity of thought. It is the Great Strength of Will which can drive a body mercilessly.
The SpellCaster's Tarot-9 of Wands, illustrates this Great Strength of Will, as a Person is shown caged by eight wands, but ready for battle with the 9th Wand.
Here, is depicted threat, defense, both in magic and of personal space. Here, one is threatened by emotional abuse. Hence, this card is about standing you guard, and defending your self, rather than accepting the abuse. The outer body may be abuse, worn down, and ready to give up; However, the inner fire of Self, will not allow it and has come to the aid of the body. The colors of Autumn in the back ground, imply this is a fire element card. The 9 pointed star in the circle, supports this cards sephirotic number.
Shown on both Tarot cards is Spiritual Power (Spiraling Energy often called "Serpent Force") , potency, force and internal strength----A powerful flow of Serpentine Force and/or Kundalini (Sex force) that drives the Great Lust of I Will To Be of the Universal Collective Unconscious. This is the same force felt by a student when learning from a Master Teacher who Channels directly from Kether (Solar Crown on the Middle Energy pillar, connected to the Moon -Binah who is Goddess Mother). Often the Student will become excited molecularity as well as mentally, and/or receive psychosomatic reactions and may have to "ground" their energetic excitement before they can either eat or sleep. This force of Strength, overcomes any physical resistance to motion, cures illness, and because of this swift-strong-Dragon like power, if ill directed by emotional immaturity can have negative results. The Divine Creative Father and the Divine Formative Mother, must be equal dance partners inside the honeymoon suite that is the human body.
