A symbol of wisdom, the sickle is a harvest tool. It says, “you reap what you sow,” illustrating the threefold law that what energy is sent out, returns to us three times over. It is associated with the last stage of life, when we have acquired what wisdom we may. Often this tool is used to gather herbs and relates to healing. It is the symbol of druidic learning. The shape of the blade is reminiscent of the crescent moon.
