AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
In my opinion, hell is exaggerated and something the religious leaders may have made up because they were losing many followers. So they needed something to restore everyone faith in god, therefore bringing the money in to them!

He is made up. An idea of "personalising" death as a "figure".
There are many such beliefs, the Banshees of Ireland for instance. A howling dog. (When my father died the dog whimpered, he didn't howl!)

The grim reaper is a representation of the energy/power of death. When someone dies the life is "reaped" from them, hence the sicle. A ghostly or skeleton body represents death itself. And the black cloak...I'm guessing it is either to represent earth or just to look mystical.
The grim reaper is very similar to the horseman of death in revelations (Bible) and I believe that is where it stems from, if my memory serves me.
Death is not evil nor dark. It is a natural end to the cycle of life. Everything must end to experience a rebirth/change. So even if there was a grim reaper running around. It's not a thing to be feared.
Well he's not made up and he's an angel (the angel of death)
he appears in the last moments of the life of every person to take his soul.
his shape will be like a person u love or sth nice if u were good in ur life and he'll be like a person u hate or sth u afraid of or just very awful and scarry if u were bad.
the person may see him for days before he/she die and noone around do.
this is real and dont belive me but keep my words in mind because u will remembes that when the time comes
I think the grim reaper is a funny character. It looks like hes always smiling, he might be the only one who sees the humor in his job.
But seriously life after death is a complex thing. Its all about consequences. I do not think death is so glamorous in that way it is usually described by "fluffy" people.
I like the grimreaper because he symbolizes change. And change is so important, if death had not existed, everything would stand still.
Hey do santa exist? well, for some people he does, and not for some others. What would life be without fantasy?
The Grim Reaper that we all have come to know in movies and tv shows is most likely made up, however Death as a being is a very talked about topic in the occult world and should not be thrown out because a few people disagree with the idea and possibility. All that shows is lack of open mindedness and in paganism being closed minded isnt a good thing. After all, if you found out something was real, provided legitimate evidence to support your finding, and someone out there who had been practicing magick for a while pretty much said "No, that cant happen, your full of crap" you wouldnt be very happy. One of my favorite authors dedicated a chapter in one of his books to the idea that Death is a real being. Personally i have mixed feelings about the subject and wont know until the day i die.
