scythe

Scythe, Dream Interpretation


The scythe, like the hourglass, is often held by the figure of death and represents the ending of physical existence. We are becoming aware of the fact that the cutting off of life – or energy – may be imminent around us, although it need not be our own death.

Psychological / emotional perspective: The scythe is a very old-fashioned symbol for the passage of time. Its appearance in dreams shows we are linking with very deeply held concepts and ideas. It is time to harvest our own experience and ensure that we can acquire all that we need.

Material aspects: The scythe is a cutting instrument, and therefore has the same significance as a knife. In dreams it usually suggests that we need to cut out non-essential actions or beliefs. We need to be fairly ruthless in order to achieve a desired end. You might also like to consult the entries for death, harvest, hourglass, knife, reaping and time.

A symbol for cutting back or ending.

If you are the one with the scythe, then you feel the need to cut back on something, or put an end to an action or situation.

If you see the “Grim Reaper”— a robed or unrobed skeletal figure with a scythe—it does not necessarily mean death. It could indicate a death to come, but it could just as easily indicate the coming end of a job, situation, relationship, or whatever. Don’t forget that where there are endings there are new beginnings, and therefore, new opportunities.

(Death; Mowing; Sickle) In a dream, a scythe means profits, good harvest, good news, true news, or the harvest of one’s life. (Also see Scissors)
