What is a Rātaka?
Celebrate the beauty of everyday life with our most popular product - our Rātaka bilingual (Te Reo Māori & English) daily planner. Rātaka is commonly translated to mean 'calendar'. It is a reference to Rā - our sun deity, Tamanuiterā and taka, meaning to rotate or circuit. Rātaka is based on the solar calendar, and everyday movement of the sun, so is the most common name for daily planners & diaries.

For last 2 years I tried two different Rātaka styles and this year I went back to this size and the set up within works for me - it has a busy and regular use, hard cover great because in and out of bags - and can lean on it to write, fits in my bag better :-) . Good size for writing in on within both columns, love the karakia and whakataukī set up, yearly calendars in a good part of the pukapuka. Binding has stayed quite firm. The blank pages have proven very useful. Love the monthly view, plenty of space to write. Beginning to utilise the ōku whāinga and ōku whakamara, ōku whakawhetai a little more often now, keep those coming especially the kōrero at the bottom of the day pages, very remindful. The new colours are great and also easier to spot within a bag or basket full of other books. He tino rawe ēnei rātaka! Ngā mihi mahana!
E mihi ana ki a koutou,
Tino rātaka te katoa. Pai rawa atu ngā wāhanga o te rātaka! Ngawari noa atu ki te whai hoki.
Ka ahu ake au ki te tau 2024 i tēnei wā ahakoa, tū nei te kaupeka o Ngahuru.
Every year I get a new Rātaka which I use as a journal and to map the Moon cycles. I also am into astrology so I put the astrology chart into the Rātaka for each New Moon and Full Moon along with Equinox and Sostices. Keep up the good work
I love how the rataka sits flat on the desk.
Having the year at a glance running across the bottom from the left page across the right page would be helpful.
Love these daily planners.
