Mid-year goals review

Do you set goals at the start of the year? This has become an important practice for me every year to set long-term goals. It’s really helped me level up my entire life!

But the trick to setting goals at the start of the year is to check in with your goals regularly.

Something I learned from Leonie Dawson is that the people who check-in with their goals regularly have a much higher chance of actually reaching their goals.

Use this mid-year point to check in with your goals:

  • What goals did you set at the start of the year?
  • How are you going with these goals? What’s already manifested, what’s in progress, what hasn’t even been started?
  • What do you need to do so you CAN reach your goals by the end of the year?

This mid-year check in can help you course-correct if you’ve been distracted by shiny objects and have totally forgotten about your goals.

This can also be a good time for letting go of goals that no longer feel aligned. Maybe you set goals at the start of the year that you’re no longer interested in pursuing – that’s totally cool.

Use the mid-year check in to review your goals, and maybe set new goals for the rest of the year.

My 2023 mid-year goal update

I set some HUGE goals for myself at the start of the year, and I’m so freaking proud of how far I’ve come this year so far!

I am so excited for what the rest of 2023 will bring!

Something that came up while I was doing my own mid-year review is that one of my big goals is to finish our house renovations so we can sell our house & move. Honestly, progress has been so sloooow with house renos over the past few months. So doing the mid-year review reminded me that this is actually my #1 priority for 2023, so I’m recommitting to getting the house renos completed!

Astro weather for the rest of 2023

I used my Honeycomb Almanac to compile some significant things that are happening astrologically for the rest of the year. I love this almanac because it not only shows the collective transits, but also natal transits customised for you! It’s an excellent reference tool for astrology students & experienced astrologers alike.

Nodal Axis Shift: on 18th July 2023, the nodes will be moving from Taurus/Scorpio to Aries/Libra. For the next 18 months, we’ll be more challenged to stand up for others and do what WE want rather than trying to please everyone else all the time.

Venus retrograde: from 23rd July through to 4th September 2023, Venus will be in retrograde from 28° to 12° Leo. This won’t be a great time for relationships or finances – take care not to hook up with your ex, or to spend money on unnecessary frivolities.

Mercury retrograde: while you thought Venus retrograde was bad enough, Mercury will also go retrograde during this time! Starting 24th August, Mercury will work it’s way backwards through Virgo until 16th September. Be careful with any paperwork, communications or travel during this time.

Solar eclipse in Libra: on 14th/15th October we’ll experience a solar eclipse in Libra, bringing a fresh new energy! Set powerful intentions under this eclipse for what you want to transform about yourself & your relationships with others over the next 18 months.

Lunar eclipse in Taurus: on 28th/29th October, we’ll have one final eclipse under the Taurus/Scorpio axis. This is a chance to say goodbye to financial worries & burdens, and to release anything that’s no longer aligned with the life you want to create.
