The Scythe card appears as a mysterious symbol, carrying with it the dual meaning of an end and a new beginning. A careful look behind its negative facade reveals a wealth of possibilities for transformation and the courage to step into the unknown.

In the classical interpretation, The Scythe is usually a card warning of interruption and the negative end of an event, danger, or destruction. It symbolizes the risk of an accident, injury, trauma, or disaster that can only be avoided with the help of the surrounding good cards. It could also be the end of a relationship or the loss of a job. The symbol of Scythe, the blade, takes center stage on the card and emphasizes the inevitability of change.

Despite the negative connotation, we must not forget that the end of a process can be the beginning of something new and positive. Scythe reminds us that at every end lies the potential for growth and transformation. The Scythe card can also symbolize unexpected events, quick turns, and surprises. The Scythe symbol creates an image of a dynamic and rapid flow of energy, emphasizing that events will unfold at lightning speed.

In a mystical sense, Scythe can be interpreted as a symbol of inner transformation and understanding of the end. It challenges us to see the end as part of a larger cycle and an opportunity for growth. The Scythe creates an image of a new beginning after the old is cut off. It is a time of insight to discover a new world of possibilities and perspectives.

In the realm of relationships, Scythe can warn of disconnection or separation, but it also highlights the need to review and rethink relationships. In business and career, Scythe can signal job changes, business surprises, or even new opportunities that can arise at lightning speed.

Scythe challenges us to see negative events as opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. The events that the Scythe predicts can be unexpected. It is important to be proactive and react skillfully when events unfold at lightning speed.
