The Reaper appears at the end of summer, the figure of a tall man with a sweeping scythe. He stands for hard work, the fruits of labour and the reward (or punishment) that waits for you after death. This is an auspicious sign to be born under, signifying the power to conquer whatever lies before you.
Those born under the Reaper’s scythe are strong-willed, sometimes to the point of bullheadedness. They do not give up easily.
