When it comes to making plans, there are those who like an exquisitely mapped out, foolproof proposal with dotted “I’s” and crossed “T’s.” And then there are those who are more than happy to throw themselves into any scenario, leaving their fate to the gods and letting the cards fall where they may. Your penchant for spontaneity may be chalked up to the stars, so check out the two most spontaneous zodiac signs and the one who prefers sticking to the plan below.

1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
If “fly by the seat of my pants,” were a person it’d be an Aries. These wild hearts absolutely love a good plan, but you know what’s better? An impulsive, unbudgeted stop into that new boutique that sells artisan jewelry or a spur-of-the-moment jaunt to the New York Catacombs by Candlelight that just reopened. Expect to receive over-excited phone calls from these firecrackers telling you they unexpectedly took part in an improv show and were—naturally—the star. And because of their unmatched independence and self-assurance, Aries are not afraid to hit the town by themselves. These free-spirited queens can enjoy an unplanned night at the club all by themselves.
2. Sagittarius (November 21 – December 23)
Happy-go-lucky Sagittarius—another fire sign—also comes to mind when we’re talking spontaneity. Not only are Sags super explorative and relentlessly curious, but they’re also one of the friendliest zodiac signs. Forget whatever errands they had planned to run for the day, if a friend calls and says they have an extra ticket to a wine tasting tour, guess who’s dropping everything? You can also find these unhinged signs scoring impromptu invites to an afterparty that no one even knew about. And because Sagittarians have a way with people, trust and believe they’re getting invites for their entire squad too.
The One Sign Who Prefers Sticking to the Plan
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Keeping everyone grounded is earth sign Virgo who loves a well-executed plan above anything else. It’s not to say that Virgos are boring, but the general philosophy here is: Why make a plan if you’re not going to follow through with it? Where Aries and Sagittarius are willing to let the day carry them wherever, Virgo is that friend on the group trip who comes with a schedule for each day, lined up with the activities set to take place. These tireless planners will know how much time it’ll take to get to that reserved Red Rock Canyon Tour (with or without traffic) and will make sure everyone has enough hydration and sunscreen to last the day. While their meticulousness can be overbearing, we love these diligent machines because they really can lead a mission when you need it the most. Say you need help moving, there is no better person to call on than your beloved Virgo friend. She’ll map out an entire weekend to get the job done—storage bins, moving boxes and bubble wrap to boot!
