Through further research into other cards (namely the Lovers and the Chariot), I believe I now know who/what the two serpents wound around the wands refer to. I believe the serpent wound around the lotus-tipped wand is Tefnut (who holds a lotus cup in her hand in the Lovers card and was known to take the form of a snake wrapped around a scepter). The other serpent is most likely the goddess Wadjet who was depicted as a cobra wrapped around a papyrus stem.
