The Scythe Lenormand Card Meaning and Interpretation

You’ll have to be on the lookout for something when you see the Scythe card appear in a Lenormand reading. A sudden ending is on the horizon, and it will most likely come without warning or expectation - though we must remember that all endings are not necessarily harmful ones. The ending will most likely be swift, and signal a clear break - and what occurs can also lead to lasting effects.

On a more symbolic level, the Scythe represents harvesting - a time when we are reaping the rewards (or punishments) of our past actions. It can mean a moment of taking stock of what we have accomplished, of self-judgement and reckoning. We must look backward to understand what we can best do to move forward and learn from what has been completed. Therefore, the Scythe can also signal a closure in that sense.

Questions to Ask with the Scythe

  • What is something that I must let go of?
