I was examining the 9 of wands more closely and noticed that the woman in the card doesn't actually grasp the two wands that are upraised. Her hands are in front of the wands. She is standing in a very commanding way, as though she were calling up elements or casting a spell. There are also military stripes at the ends of the two upraised wands that seem to indicate fighting, skirmish, or battles of some nature. The card seems much more offensive than defensive to me. The two magenta colored petal/flames at either side of the cave mouth, coupled with the look of concentration on the woman's face, her upraised arms and the miliary stripes bespeak a readying of power that will shortly be unleashed. She doesn't appear fatigued like the figures in other 9 of wands cards often do.
