The symbol for Scythe is an abstract pictograph of the scythe, which is a tool that dates back as far as 500 BC and was used for cutting hay, wheat, grain or other crops. The tool was crafted with a long curved blade that was fastened at an angle to the end of a long pole with one or two short handles. It replaced the sickle for reaping crops by the 16th century. The scythe is associated with the Grim Reaper and is symbolic of the harvest of souls at the end of life.
Scythe corresponds with death and things associated with it including; funerals, burials, Wills, inheritance, heirlooms, legacies, and ancestry. It also represents endings in all forms; divorce, graduation, loss of job, illness, important life changes, painful or difficult choices, separations, and sudden traumatic changes. It may also symbolize foreboding, danger, and resentment.
