It’s time for an awesome reader question on the Lenormand Scythe.
Awesome reader asks: “Can you tell us more about the Lenormand Scythe? How do you know which way is cutting or harvesting?”
About the Lenormand Scythe
The Scythe announces danger. It is regarded as one of the more negative Lenormand cards.
Look at the cards surrounding the Scythe to tell you where the danger is coming from so that you aren’t caught unprepared.
Keep a close and careful eye on the cards following the Scythe.
The Scythe might indicate a trip will be cancelled, a relationship will end, or surgery will be necessary.
Always take caution to prevent any accidents: car accidents, bicycle accidents, sports-related injuries, or even out-of-the-norm accidents, such as falling down the stairs.
However, remember that primarily the Scythe is a sign of danger nearby and sudden decisions (often severe, painful and permanent). It’s a warning to exercise caution so that you can avoid or minimize any damage or harm.
The danger can be avoided if positive cards are nearby.
The Direction the Scythe Faces
Not all readers look at the direction of the image on the card to tell them the meaning of the Scythe, so it’s okay if you don’t use this technique. You can simply follow the traditional meaning of the Scythe cutting what is after it.
If you choose to use the direction that the Scythe is facing to tell you what will be cut or harvested:
If the point of the blade faces to the left: the Scythe will cut or negatively effect whatever is before it
If the point of the blade faces to the right: the Scythe will cut or negatively effect whatever is after it
If the handle of the Scythe is on the left: the Scythe will harvest or gather whatever is before it
If the handle of the Scythe is on the right: the Scythe will harvest or gather whatever is after it
