Mabon is a celebration and also a time of rest after the labor of harvest. In terms of life path, it is the moment of reaping what you have sown, time to look at the hopes and aspirations of Imbolc and Ostara and reflect on how they have manifested. It is time to complete projects, to clear out and let go that which is no longer wanted or needed as we prepare for the winter and utilize it as a time for reflection and peace. And it is time to contemplate seeds of new ideas and hopes which will lie dormant but nourished in the dark, until the return of Spring.
Here is another point of perfect balance on the journey through the Wheel of the Year. Night and day are again of equal length and in perfect equilibrium - dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, in balance. But we are again on the cusp of transition and from now the year begins to wane, from this moment darkness begins to defeat the light. The cycle of the natural world is moving towards completion, the Sun's power is waning and days are shorter and cooler. The sap of trees returns back to their roots deep in the earth, changing the green of summer to the fire of autumn, to the flaming reds, oranges, and golds.
