5 Goal-Oriented Zodiac Signs Who Have A Five-Year Plan.

There are people who are planners because it not only helps them focus, but it gives them the steps they need to take to reach their goals. And a five-year plan is one that has a deadline and some steps that need to be taken in order, and other actions that don't. 

Clearly, it takes a certain personality to write up a five-year plan and implement it. You need to be focused, driven, and able to stick with it. There are some ambitious and goal-oriented zodiac signs in astrology who are more likely to follow this plan to ensure their future success.

Before making one, it helps to be focused on the details, and think about what you want and how achievable it is. You might want to have different life categories such as health, relationships, career, volunteer, or personal growth, or you may want to make a plan for each.

When you make your plan, try to do it without any negative self-talk. You don’t want to judge yourself as you make it, so try to listen to your heart instead. Once you write what you want and the steps to achieve it, it helps if you visualize how things will look when you’ve taken the steps and completed your plan.

Think about what your day will look like in five years and get into the details: what your house looks like, what you’re wearing, how your family life has changed, and your relationship to money. 

1. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

One of Capricorn's many talents is the ability to make plans, so a five-year plan would make a lot of sense to them. Capricorns like to have as much certainty in their lives as possible, and they thrive on working towards a goal.

You can't make plans without a plan, meaning if you don't have a clear vision of what you want to achieve and where you'll be, then how will you know the steps to take to get there? Capricorns like the feeling you get when everything falls into place.

2. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Making a five-year plan is a very practical way to accomplish the things that Virgos want. They can get loaded down with ideas and things they want to happen, but if they don't have a plan, it can be difficult to make anything happen.

Virgos can easily figure out the steps they need to take, but they'll keep adding to it if they don't have a finite amount of time to do it. They need that push that a plan with an end time can give to keep them motivated to take the right steps.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

For as chill as Libras want you to believe they are, they're constantly making plans. Plans motivate and excite them, and keep them moving forward. Libras can get off course, which is why open-ended plans don't work as well for them.

Libras need to know what to do and when to do it, and if they don't do it in the right amount of time, it won't work. They sometimes have issues with not finishing things, so deadlines are key. Five years is a good amount of time to get focused and start working towards creating their best lives.

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The Taurus individual often knows what they want, but if they don't make a plan with each step listed and an end date, they may become overwhelmed to the point of giving up altogether. This is one time that Taurus' trademark stubbornness comes in handy.

Once their five-year plan is set, they get focused on it and will stick to it to the very end. Never underestimate the bull's determination and their quest to live the life they imagine for themselves.

5. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

One thing Scorpio has that makes them good at planning and executing a five-year plan is motivation. If they didn't, their goals would just be unachieved dreams. Motivation and plans are circular, and for Scorpio, they wouldn't have one without the other.

If they weren't motivated to accomplish what they set out to do, they wouldn't do it, and if they didn't have a plan, they wouldn't have anything to commit to. Having a plan gives Scorpio the feeling that they're in control.
