Dream meaning of scythe

To dream of a scythe, foretells accidents or sickness will prevent you from attending to your affairs, or making journeys.

An old or broken scythe, implies separation from friends, or failure in some business enterprise.

An attribute of Saturn and, in general, linked with allegories of death; it is also associated with Attis and the priests of Cybele, in which case the allusion is to self-mutilation. In some images of these deities it is not a large agricultural scythe that is portrayed but a small dagger curved in shape and called harpe. Broadly speaking, all curved weapons are lunar and feminine symbols, whereas straight ones are masculine and solar. Straightness signifies penetration and forcefulness, curves suggest the means to an end and passivity. For this reason, the harpe has been linked with the ‘indirect way’, that is, with the secret path which leads to the beyond.
