Astrologically speaking, the date, time, and location you were born determine your natal chart. Natal charts typically paint a cosmic picture for an individual—which planets were in which zodiac signs during their exact birth. Some of the most well-known planetary placements include someone’s sun, moon, and rising signs—which symbolize your mission in life, your emotional security, and how others see you, respectively. However, in terms of astrology, all the planets have different meanings as far as your personality makeup goes. Because astrology can tell you about who you are as a person, it can be a powerful tool for understanding yourself and making decisions aligned with your highest, most authentic self. Cue: planners based on zodiac sign.
- Rachel Lang, astrologer, psychic medium, and author of Modern Day Magic: 8 Simple Rules to Realize Your Power and Shape Your Life and As Above, So Below
Certain zodiac signs thrive at even just the thought of filling out a planner (yeah, we’re all thinking Virgo). Other signs, though, might not even consider getting a planner because they’re more free-spirited and tend to go with the flow, says astrologer Rachel Lang, author of Modern Day Magic. Even if that’s true, though, you might still benefit from at least keeping a loose schedule and writing down just the most important dates—like reminders to get your yearly physical or, since you care for your spiritual health, Mercury retrograde 2022 dates.
Keep reading to learn what Lang says each of the zodiac signs should look for in a planner as well as a shoppable option for each.
The best 2022 planners based on zodiac sign
According to Lang, 2022 will be a pretty fortuitous year for Aries. That’s because from May 11 to October 28, 2022 (mark that down!), Jupiter—the planet associated with abundance, opportunities, and luck—will be in your sign.
“If they've got a dream, if they wanna make a change in their career, this is a time when opportunities come their way,” says Lang about Aries’ 2022. To work with the cosmic luck on your side, Lang adds, you might consider a manifestation planner to focus on what your intention is.
This planner has close to five stars on Amazon, and one reviewer said that “This is one of the best planners you’ll find on this entire site! They give a lot for your money. There are others that look similar and can’t compete with this one.” We love that this planner specifically focuses on productivity and highlights daily happiness “to become the best possible version of yourself on a mental, physical & interpersonal level using the law of attraction vibration guide.”
Lang says that for Taurus, “it’s all about money this year.” Get your finances in order by aligning your priorities with your spending, Taurus—which getting planners based on zodiac sign will be key in doing.
As an Earth sign, Taurus is no stranger to grounding practices and practicality. However, you’ll still find a planner useful as you try to send more tangible goals in terms of budgeting, spending, saving, and investing, says Lang. “Planners that focus on practical things like budgeting and spending” are ideal for Taurus, she adds.
This budget planner is perfect for Taurus in 2022. Featuring 160 pages, this little number lets you set, track, and achieve your financial goals by having places where you can input your income and expenses. It also has four pages of debt tracking so you can get your financial wellness on track.
“This is an interesting year for Gemini,” says Lang, but interesting doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad. In fact, Lang adds, 2022 is a year that truly encourages self-growth for Gemini. For that reason, you want a planner that has a focus on affirmations.
In terms of planners based on zodiac sign, it doesn’t have to be something that guides you to say your own affirmations, though. A planner with kind quotes or reminders should do the trick here.
Sr. Commerce Editor Gina Vaynshteyn (a Gemini through and through) has been using Day Designer planners for the last five years, and swears by them to not just keep her organized, but also feeling productive and inspired (thanks to the daily affirmations and quotes and the golden stickers that come in different shapes like stars and airplanes for goals achieved and trips to take). Depending on your needs, you can get yourself a mini size (6.6″ wide x 8.3″ tall ) for $49, and regular (9” wide x 9.75” tall) for $59, but both have ample room for daily to-do lists and a full two-page calendar for each month. Bonus: Planners are now 15 percent off, so snag one while you can!
Jupiter is in favorable Pisces, which means Cancer is thinking about travel and expanding their horizons, says Lang. If your sun sign is this dreamy water sign, you should opt for a daily planner that centers around the theme of traveling, Lang adds.
“This will be the year for that overseas trip,” Lang says. And, because a vacation across the pond takes a pretty intensive amount of planning, you should start doing so now. A planner would come in pretty handy, then.
You know the travel planner is good when you see a map of the world on its cover, in between which are the words “Wander always.” Upon opening up this planner, you see a bucket list of places to go and things to do, which can help hold you accountable to take that overseas trip Lang was talking about.
Lang says that 2022 is your year to sparkle and shine, Leo, and your planner should do the same. The iconic fire sign has been facing a lot of tension, but some of that’ll ease up when Jupiter goes into Aries on May 11, says Lang.
Until then, “You want a planner that helps bring out your creative side,” Lang says. Think customizable planners that feature glitter and stickers—which, let’s be real, Leo, you probably have these supplies anyway.
If you saw the picture and thought, What am I, 12 years old? I get you, and please allow me to retort: This journaling set might seem a little childish, but it’s truly what Lang recommended as far as letting yourself engage with your creative side, Leo.
This kit comes complete with stickers, gems, glitter frames, and charms—which means it’s among the most customizable planners out there. Plus, there’s nothing wrong with embracing your inner child, even if it is through planners based on zodiac signs.
On the off chance that you haven’t gotten a planner, Virgo, Lang says that you should look for one that encourages collaboration, because that’s what 2022 has in store for you. “It’s a year of aligning with the right people, both in your personal and professional life,” says Lang, so having a planner with a section for notes would be ideal, she adds.
Love is a big theme for Virgo this year, Lang adds, so having the extra space to sort out your feelings will be particularly powerful for the usually detail-oriented Virgos.
Considering that this planner also goes into 2023, it’s probably something out of your dreams, Virgo. Even if you already have a planner where you can jot down important dates, considering purchasing this planner because it has ample space for collaboration notes, which Lang says will be necessary for you in 2022. It comes in five different colors, so, truly, take your pick!
You really can’t be good to others if you’re not taking care of yourself. According to Lang, Libras tend not to want to disappoint people, which often means you’re leaving yourself on the back burner.
It’s true that health and relationships are big themes for you in 2022, Libra, but there’s no relationship more important than the one we have with ourselves. That said, Lang adds that a self-care planner would be great to get your mojo back.
“[A self-care planner] allows you to prioritize self-care and have something you’re doing for yourself,” says Lang.
In addition to having dedicated sections for goals and gratitude, this journal features a six-step self-care plan to help you keep your health and wellness on track. What’s more is that it’s also aesthetically pleasing, because it uses 70-lb bright white paper, a linen fabric hardcover, and gold foil lettering.
Lang says that one of the things atop Scorpio’s list in 2022 should be their physical health, because this intuitive sign often lets that fall by the wayside. And, for exactly that reason, it’s important to purchase a planner focused on measurable goals, says Lang.
While the cover might not scream “aesthetics,” the purpose of this journal isn’t to be nice on the eyes—it’s to keep your health in check. With weekly and daily health and wellness logs, food journal, and a meal planning “diary,” this Clever Fox Wellness Planner does just that. If the light blue isn’t your vibe, there are more than 10 colors to choose from—and they all come with stickers!
Just like 2022 is going to be an interesting year for Gemini, so, too, will it be for Sagittarius, particularly as it relates to their home life, says Lang. “They're perhaps looking to see what kind of changes they want to make. Maybe it's time to make a move, move to redecorate,” she says.
A home planner, or perhaps a planner that has places for photos so you can tap into your nostalgia, would be ideal for Sagittarius in 2022.
Originally $54, now $46
The reviews on the Passionate Penny Pincher website truly say it all. From “This planner is a great investment!” to “I honestly can’t imagine my life without it,” the Home Planner checks so many boxes.
Whether you’re moving out on your own for the first time, are a first-time homeowner, or are just trying to reconfigure your space, this planner will—as its name suggests—help you get your home life in order.
Oh, Capricorn—the go-getter of the zodiac bunch. As such, if you're shopping for planners based on zodiac sign, you need a planner that supports your every move. In 2022, Lang says you’ll want to opt specifically for a planner that helps you tap into leadership quality.
If your planner features motivational aspects, that’s even better, Lang adds. (Think: Jen Sincero’s You Are a Bad Ass.)
Aside from being gorgeous, this planner is just as practical as Earth sign Capricorn. It features monthly goal setting, pages for self-reflection and growth, monthly and weekly calendar spreads, to-do lists for planning projects and tracking appointments, birthdays, and other important events—which will be plentiful for Capricorn in 2022.
“This is a time to be owning your power,” says Lang. It’s also a time for you to be comfortable making big commitments, Aquarius, because everything you started in the last two years will manifest in 2022.
Lang’s advice for Aquarians is that they get a planner that’s goal-oriented and practical, so that it can be useful in helping to create a routine around the goals you most want to accomplish.
While air sign Aquarius might think planners are unnecessary or too much pressure, Lang says that in 2022, you’ll definitely want to have one. Not that you care what other people think, Aquarius, but this Legend planner has 15,000 reviews on Amazon and has averaged a rating of 4.7 stars.
“This is a very mystical, dreamy, spiritual year for Pisces, so they might not even want a planner. They might just be in their own world,” says Lang. Point taken, but if you’re an empathic Pisces who is looking for a planner, maybe you’ll consider something that lets you tap into your otherworldly sixth sense.
