This is a descriptive article and list of some of the most common and also unusual characteristics and traits of a starseed soul.


While this information can be used to recognize if you are a starseed yourself, it also explains some of the unique experiences and personality quirks that are most generally shared among starseed individuals.


The list describes physical symptoms and signs common with star seeds as well as the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects that are part of the starseed path and outlook on life.

If you or someone you know is a starseed they may resonate with most if not all of the starseed qualities and experiences listed here.

As always, no external list, label or definition can always accurately describe with 100% certainty the starseed experience; one must look within themselves and truly remember what they already know.


Find what resonates with you and always trust your heart concerning the answers you seek.


Starseed Personality Traits and Characteristics

A starseed has a profound feeling of being very different from other people.


Everyone is unique and different from others in some way or another, but for a starseed, this feeling begins at a very early age and stays with them well into adulthood. There may be no external cause of this feeling and most have relatively normal childhood and adult lives (although they will tend to have some very unusual experiences).


Many people will view these individuals as being somewhat weird or eccentric, even if the starseed is trying to act 'normal' and blend in.


A starseed knows they are different, even if they don't quite know why, and even if they try to 'fake it' they will be unhappy pretending to be anyone but themselves.

A starseed individual may discover that they are extremely sensitive and may have a naturally developed sixth sense; most are highly empathic.


Having empathy means that they have the ability to feel or sense the emotions and sometimes even the 'thought vibrations' of other people, especially those whom they are closest to. If they are not aware of the source of these emotions or energies then it can seem as if it is their own emotions they are feeling.


Unconscious starseeds who are highly empathic can be easily influenced energetically. This makes it important to learn grounding and shielding techniques so they do not absorb the emotions of others or take them on as their own.

The empathic ability of a starseed (or anyone with the ability) can become problematic if one is constantly bombarded with the energy of other people, especially those who are negative. This can result in them becoming increasingly drained energetically over time.


This is often the reason why many starseeds feel more comfortable alone in their own private space and tend to feel overwhelmed when around even small groups of familiar people let alone large groups of strangers.


Although some starseeds actually feel better in large crowds such as those at an event of some sorts, because this way they feel they can 'blend in' more.

Many starseeds journey through life feeling alienated from others in some way and when involved in even small group settings they often feel disconnected from the others or out of place in some way. Their mind is always buzzing with thought and sometimes they have feelings of anxiety or even boredom.


The starseed tends to 'think about what the others are thinking about' and this thought stream can sometimes indicate is a strong telepathic ability as well.


Starseeds sometimes enjoy simply observing others out of curiosity instead of interacting or being put on the spot. Even the more social and outgoing starseeds will still resonate with some of these qualities and experiences on some level.

It's common for starseeds to feel like they don't have much in common with many other people and sometimes can not understand why people,

'do what they do' and 'like what they like'.

They tend to feel much better and lighter in energy when they are around higher vibrational people who are more consciously aware because these lighter individuals seem to just 'get it' while no one else seems tuned in.

In some situations when interacting with others a starseed may find themselves suddenly 'shapeshifting' their energy to match the other's so they can 'play along' or understand the individual on a deeper level.


This unusual experience is hard to describe but a lot of starseed souls may recognize it. A desire and need to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and from 'normal' people.


Starseeds often prefer to be alone not from a sense of depression but out of a sense of freedom and feeling like they are in their comfort zone. They tend to benefit and do enjoy seeing out others who share their own spiritual interests. They enjoy have deep and more meaningful conversations and can get bored with mindless 'chit chat' or shallow conversation.

A common phenomenon among starseeds is frequently seeing the 11:11 or other repeating number sequences appearing on clocks and popping up in other unexpected places often.


There is also a peculiar feeling or sensation that accompanies these synchronicities.



The Starseed Child and Young Adult

Starseeds tend to be more shy and introverted as children.


They also tend to be highly creative and imaginative on many levels. They can spend hours just thinking and pondering in their minds, and playing in their own 'make-believe world'.


Many would rather spend time by themselves, with nature and animals rather than with other children. This can often be due that feeling of being different from others in some way or because they feel they can't relate to other children.


Many tend to be more comfortable in the company of adults and are often considered mature for their age.


Even so, many starseed children grow up feeling misunderstood and can carry a heavy sadness in their heart at times for reasons they often don't understand.

Starseed children can sometimes have periods of hyperactivity and if that accompanies any anti-social behavior at times then they are often diagnosed with having A.D.D. or autism in extreme cases.


Later on in life they can often be diagnosed with having Bi-Polar disorder because of the dramatic swings of emotion, But most of these qualities are due to the starseed's sensitivity to the world around them and empathic abilities as mentioned previously.

As children starseeds tend to be highly intelligent with an inquisitive mind, even if they suffer from poor grades in school.


Starseed children are fascinated by many things and may show early interest in various subjects such as art, music, science, geography, history, language, reading, writing and journaling and sometimes poetry.


If a subject disinterests a starseed child or if they feel the information is mundane or useless on some level they may tend to 'tune it out' and only absorb what excites their passion and curiosity, often soaking up knowledge and even studying subjects on their own.

Starseed children often have an 'imaginary' friend.


Now many children have imaginary friends at such a young age, but for the starseed there is often something unusual surrounding the experience. Starseed children can often create fantasy worlds to explore in their own minds.


This is typical of every child to a degree, but even as adults starseeds have an incredible ability to visualize and ponder the most incredible things.





These images and insights are often very vivid.


These mental journeys and daydreams tend to go beyond the stereotypical 'fantasies' of earth and can often feel very real.

Starseed children often feel more comfortable communicating with animals, nature, trees, and even inanimate objects such as stuffed animals or toys when they are very young; some may have a feeling or sense as if these things are 'conscious' and can understand them.


It is the 'energy' of these beings and objects that the starseed may be sensing, but with animals and people it can be early signs of an empathic or telepathic ability.


Many starseed children, including adults, have a fondness for particular creatures like felines and wild cats, birds such as owls and eagles, and some even like reptiles.

In general, starseed children have a deep connection, love and appreciation of nature and animals.


They feel comfortable and energized outdoors in natural settings, and with animals there is always a deep and compassionate understanding for them. Most feel very attracted to the water as well and swimming can be very healing and calming for starseeds.

It is their sensitive nature, compassion and empathy that often inspires starseed children to develop an interest in various forms of healing. Many will continue to develop these healing abilities as they get older or enter into careers involving healing.

In fact, starseeds begin to question what is 'real' even at that very young age.


They often ponder or ask deep or serious questions, have a healthy and genuine curiosity about the people around them and the world in general. They may question everything and always want to know 'why' something is the way it is.


Starseed children can even ponder the deepest of questions about reality and delve into concepts such as reincarnation and life after death.

Starseeds may have unusual experiences in childhood that they tend to never forget. Starseeds also have memories of some unique or very emotional dreams, even some that feel very 'real' as if they are more memories rather than dreams.

Many starseeds remember having a profound or unusual experience around the ages of 5-11 years old that may relate to UFO's, 'aliens' or the stars, while other may have more paranormal experiences with ghosts or shadow figures.

Please note that most of the starseed traits and characteristics are very similar to those associated with Indigo Children and Lightworkers.


All of them do share a common purpose on the planet. Many children that are considered Indigo's are actually starseed children, but not all Indigos are star seeded souls. Starseed children share many things in common with Indigo Children such as their empathic and introverted nature, but tend to carry these particular traits well into adulthood.


Lightworkers are simply individuals who have consciously chosen to walk a spiritual path, to raise their own vibration and to help spread love and light into the world to assist with the ascension process.


Anyone, including starseeds and indigos can be lightworkers.



Physical Symptoms and Signs of Starseeds

Starseeds often experience sensitivity to extreme hot or cold (most of them being more intolerant to cold).


They either can not tolerate the cold as much and prefer warmer or even hot weather, or they are more comfortable in colder weather and find heat intolerable.

They may have a high tolerance for pain (or sometimes the extreme opposite and the starseed may be extremely sensitive to pain for some reason). Many starseeds have a high immunity to many viruses that would effect others easily. When they do become sick - which is not that often - they may recover more quickly.

Many have a strong body (no matter what body type they may have) and it is not uncommon for a starseed to have never broken a bone within their life.


They often heal very quickly from any sprains or injuries to the body. Even if weak in appearance starseeds can be have much physical strength and even an inner strength at exact moments when they need it.

A strange symptom of some starseeds is that they may have a tendency to bruise very easily and often do not remember how they bumped themselves or got the bruise.


They might find other unusual marks or scratches on their body at times and not recall how they might have gotten these.

They may have a prominent birthmark or mole somewhere on their body. Sometimes a few birthmarks or freckles that they have are unusual in appearance or even form an unusual shape, design or pattern.

Many starseeds feel an aversion to bright and unnatural lighting.


Starseeds find peace and solace in natural sunlight. They tend to have an affinity with nature and many have a fondness for trees in particular, especially willow trees for some reason. Many starseeds feel more at home with plants and animals than with other humans.

Many starseeds have acute hearing or an above average hearing range.


They can be extremely sensitive to sound and loud or chaotic noise disturbs them immensely. It's not uncommon for starseeds to sometimes hear strange or unusual high pitched frequencies or tones in one of their ears.


This often happens during periods of accelerated soul growth and can even be accompanied by head pressure, tingling, or other sensations that seem unusual in any area of the body.


These physical experiences can happen out of the blue and occur for a period of days or week, then suddenly the symptoms disappear just as abruptly.

A common physical trait found among starseeds is having blond hair, or hair of any color but with a reddish tint. Eyes can vary in color but many will have unusual or eccentric eyes, either in shape or color, but often just in their intensity.


The eyes of a starseed can often be large and bright or have a unique spark to them. As a child, this can be even more intense.

Many starseeds have an extreme sensitivity to alcohol, drugs, and typically any medicine, while others tend to have an extremely high tolerance to such things.


All such physical tendencies such as these can vary depending on the individual and can fluctuate over time.


This is true with most people but starseeds tend to be at a higher risk and must try to avoid withdrawing into escapism involving abuse of any substance (or abuse of anything as a rule) to cope with reality or deal with pain.


This can cloud the starseed vision and delay their progress, but if it occurs early in life it can often lead to deep insight and life changing experiences which pave the way for their later awakening. The more awakened a starseed becomes, the less they rely on, desire or can even tolerate certain chemical substances.


Most will then continue to make more conscious and positive decisions regarding their health in general.

A majority of starseeds even as young adults are night owls and enjoy staying up later than the average person. There is a peaceful feeling of solitude and clarity that starseeds feel at night.


Those who do sleep earlier may find themselves suddenly awakening for no reason often around 3 am.


Many starseeds have unusual sleep patterns or find that they can get by on less sleep than the average person, but still there are periods where they may feel extreme fatigue and need more sleep than usual.

This a descriptive list of starseed personality traits and unique characteristics...


You can use these as a general guide to help recognize if you or someone you know is a star seeded soul.


Although no descriptive list of personality traits can determine with certainty whether or not someone is a starseed, and although many people share or can relate to many of these qualities and experiences, if you relate or resonate with a majority of what is found on this starseed list then it is a positive indication that you may be in the process of awakening to your origin and purpose.


Always trust your intuition and heart.



Starseed Dreams and Visions

Many starseeds have reoccurring visions and dreams which feel like daydreams but have more substance and feel more 'real'.


It's as if there is a movie playing in their mind's eye and they can play the role of themselves and even the other characters in the daydream, complete with thoughts and emotion.


It feels as if they are recalling a memory or projecting a desired event into the future.

Dreams and even visions can include fragmented memories of people, places or events that seem vaguely familiar to them but whom they have never met in person. Often these dreams or visions actually manifest or come to pass indicating a clairvoyant ability.


Some describe it as a feeling of 'remembering the future'.

Many experience recurring dreams of flying and may have had a few out of body experiences throughout their life. Many have the ability to have lucid dreams or have experienced astral projection.

Starseeds often experience missing time, or periods where times seems to either slow down or speed up considerably.


Although, this is an experience that is happening to most people at this time on the planet as our perception of reality and time changes and consciousness expands.



Characteristics and Traits of Star Seeds - Exploring the Heart and Mind of a Starseed

Starseeds often feel that they may have a special purpose or role to play in their life.


They often have a desire to 'heal or save the world' when they take a look at the many problems. Some have a desire to 'straighten out the many problems' in society and on the planet or have Aquarian ideals (and many are the astrological sign of Aquarius), feeling that they have unique or unconventional solutions to these issues - and often do.


Although sometimes starseeds feel alienated from others and society in general and often find human behavior puzzling and illogical, they still can feel compassion for humanity and a sense of unity with them.

Starseeds often experiences synchronicity in their life especially during times of transition or spiritual growth, either during extreme high vibrations of energy or during extreme lows.


Seeing the 11:11 on digital clocks, and other double digit repeating number sequences suddenly 'pop up' in unusual ways when least expected is quite common. These experiences can help trigger the starseed to awaken more fully by paying more attention to how the inner world is connected to the outer world.

On a subconscious level starseeds often feel that something is 'about to happen' soon on the planet and that great changes are to be expected very soon.


It is a feeling that something is speeding up and coming to a head or climax.


This tends to be part of the starseed mission for incarnating on earth.





During these great times of change they sense that they may somehow have a role to play, even if this just means,

  • gathering information of some kind


  • raising their own personal vibration and the vibrations of other people

This in turn can effect the entire planet energetically on a collective level.


Eventually the starseed becomes more fully conscious of their purpose and can feel the waves of energy and shifting of consciousness that is now occurring on the planet.

Some starseeds may have a strong aversion to strong sexual joking or references, racial humor or foul language in general. Words carry a vibration and often starseeds can feel this and they can feel uncomfortable around people who constantly use negative words or obscene language, even jokingly.

Most starseeds are extremely intelligent and may have an above average IQ.


Even as children they may have a love of learning and enjoy games, puzzles, riddles and anything. Many have a knack for analytical thinking and details but can also understand abstract concepts and have an appreciate for beauty and art.

Many Starseeds grow up with a strong interest in music and art in particular, and often enjoy writing and drawing or any form of artistic or creative expression. Most of them are avid readers even at an early age.

Even at a very young age starseeds can be avid readers who love to absorb material of any kind from fictional fantasies and novels to self help books and non-fiction informational books. They love to learn and soak up knowledge on many different subjects, often causing them to become 'jacks of all trades but masters of none'.


It is is just that starseeds have such a unique and wide variety of interests and so many things fascinate them. They have the ability to absorb information quickly and many are speed readers and have excellent ability to retain, sort and organize information in their heads.

Starseeds tend to have an aversion to mundane types of employment or 'dead end jobs'.


They get bored by repetitive tasks unless it involves something they are passionate about.


Starseeds dislike working for others and want to 'be their own boss'.


This does not mean that the starseed is lazy or dislikes work, but simply that they would prefer to get paid doing something they love or put their heart into and in areas where they are talented, can work independently, or are making a difference somehow.



The Interests and Inner Nature of A Star Seed

Even from a young age starseeds may have a natural desire and even ability to heal.


This is partly due to their empathic nature but also because of a sincere desire to assist others. They may have an intuitive sense of what needs to be balanced in someone or even a situation to achieve wholeness and well-being.


They can often feel the pain of another as their own. This natural desire to help and heal often draws them to healing practices and even unconventional healing methods.


They may develop an interest in natural or alterative healing such as with the use of herbs, crystals, reiki, etc... Many enter careers that involve healing in some way, even fields such as counseling.

A large amount of starseeds have an attraction to the colors indigo and purple, blue, green and especially lighter and softer colors such as sky blue, teal and lavender.


Starseeds feel attracted and drawn to the energy and vibration of nature and natural weather phenomena such as thunderstorms, lightning, waterfalls and the ocean surf.


All of this is about energy and these particular things have a higher frequency or faster vibrating energy. There is powerful energy in nature and colors even carry particular vibrations and energetic impressions that can be felt by starseeds.

They have an inner knowing to 'do what is right' even if these things were not taught.


Starseeds are often highly intuitive or have some psychic ability that may not even be realized as they had these abilities since a young age and they have become part of their everyday experience.

They also tend to have prophetic dreams or visions that later come to pass. Sometimes these dreams and visions are not always literal or direct and can appear symbolically as metaphor.

Most if not all starseeds are strongly attracted to space, and love to observe the stars, planets, moon, etc and feel an inner 'calling' or connection to the Cosmos.


They often feel a deep sense of longing, of want to 'leave and return home' but they just don't know what home is. Sometimes they feel like a stranger in a strange land.

In general starseeds tend to have a strong attraction or interests in scientific fields such as,

  • astronomy

  • quantum physics

  • biology

  • chemistry

  • archaeology

  • psychology...

They may also have an interest in,

  • philosophy

  • metaphysics,

...and of course various subjects related to the,

  • paranormal

  • occult

  • new age

  • spirituality

  • esotericism

  • mysticism

No matter what the spiritual or religious belief (or lack thereof) that a starseed has, and no matter what they were taught to believe as children regarding any spiritual or religious concept, there is an inner sense, knowing or belief that there is indeed an all-powerful being or Source, or that there is creative universal force or unifying energetic presence that all is a part of as a whole.


Starseeds can sense this unity in nature and when around other aware souls.


Their attraction to the Cosmos allows them to see the 'bigger picture' and they explore profound concepts in their mind even at an early age. They understand on a deeper level that there is a non-physical reality that extends beyond what we merely see with our five physical senses.

Starseeds tend to have a sometimes obsessive desire to search out the missing elements of spiritual teachings that are not found in religion.


They may see or search for similarities and parallels in various religious and spiritual teachings and seek to find the unifying and underlying principles with them.


This results in many not conforming to one specific religion or set of spiritual beliefs, and instead exploring many different philosophies eastern philosophies to more western esoteric teachings.

Starseeds may feel drawn to various different ancient symbols and may have an intuitive understanding of their meaning and what they represent. They are attracted to these symbols often because of a strange sensation they get which often feels like a 'knowing or memory' of what the symbol represents energetically, despite what the symbol is being used for.

Most starseeds are attracted to the mystical side of life and nature and feel drawn to ancient cultures, sacred sites, and monuments such as Stonehenge and the pyramids.


Many resonate and feel a sense of familiarity concerning certain ancient civilizations or periods in time such as Atlantis or Lemuria; many feel or recall memories of past lives during those times.



Starseed Awakening

If you can relate to most of these traits and characteristics, feelings and experiences that there is very high chance that you are a starseeded soul.


If you couldn't relate to most of them this does not necessarily mean that you are not a starseed, but either way every individual still has a very important role to play during this time on the planet and all can assist in ushering in the new age.


If you resonated or experience all of these traits then you may be a fully awakened starseed.

Remember that no list of traits, characteristics or 'symptoms' can fully describe an individual who may be a starseed or determine for sure if they are. Many of the traits and experiences listed here can describe anybody from any walk of life, but sharing most of these characteristics and resonating with the concept of starseeds while experiencing a 'gut feeling' about this is a strong indication.


Still, it is not something to run around and share with everyone as many people (even non-awakened starseeds) may not understand such concepts and may just think you are strange (of course starseeds are pretty strange...!).


Being a starseed is often something that you will just 'know' on a deep inner level of your being and your own personal experiences and inner guidance will speak for itself.

Whether you are in the process of awakening or are fully awake,

  • keep up with your spiritual work on an inner level


  • follow the synchronicities because they will guide you


  • continue to open expand your mind and your heart,

...and no matter what unexpected circumstances happen in your life, and especially when you are in low spaces of depression, feeling alone or misunderstood, never forget who you are...
