What is a Starseed? Girl and Her Moon

This is a very special time in the history of the Earth. Not only are we moving into a New Age (the Age of Aquarius), we are also moving into the sixth Golden Age.

A New Age takes place roughly every 2,000 years but there have only been five Golden Ages since the Earth was formed. Therefore, this is a truly special time in the Earth’s lifetime and we are currently in the process of transitioning into this New Age.

As a result, we have seen an influx of Starseeds who have incarnated to Earth to help with the ascension process and assist humans into this new era.

The first Starseeds began showing up in the 1960’s and 1970’s. A huge wave of other Starseeds called Indigo Children then showed up in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Starseeds continue to show up in the 2000’s onwards as more and more souls from other planets, galaxies and celestial bodies incarnate to Earth during this exciting time.

Starseeds are different to the human soul as they originate from other places in the universe. Starseeds are not here specifically to take part in Earth school, as many souls are. Many souls are here to experience the Earth as it is a phenomenal place for learning lessons, more so than any other place in the universe. There are many places in the universe that are more advanced technologically and spiritually, but there is something unique about the Earth and its ability for soul ascension. Hence, so many souls come to Earth to learn different lessons.

Starseeds are here for a specific purpose. They incarnate in human bodies but they are here primarily to help the Earth shift into the Golden Age and help ease the process for humans. They are here for specific missions.

When a Starseeds mission is complete, they usually return to the planet or star cluster they originated from.

There are a number of different types of Starseed: Pleiadian, Sirian, Arcturian and Lyran to name a few. Each Starseed has its own individual qualities and specific mission. Some Starseeds pair up. For example, Pleiadian and Sirian Starseeds will often pair up in romantic relationships!

Starseed Traits

Do you think you or someone you know is a Starseed? Some traits of a Starseed are:

A feeling you don’t belong

Starseeds have an inner knowing that they come from a place other than Earth. Many feel a sense of ‘home’ when they look at the stars or when they see the moon, especially during the Full Moon when the moon is at its brightest. Starseeds know they originate from a place that isn’t Earth.

Psychic abilities

Starseeds have powerful psychic abilities which are often activated after their Dark Night of the Soul period. Starseeds are powerful clairvoyants, telepaths, clairsentients and empaths.


Many Starseeds are empaths, especially Pleiadian Starseeds. They have great empathy for others. They feel others’ pain as if it is their own and they feel compelled to help others who are struggling or suffering as though they themselves are going through the same.

Strong connection to nature and animals

Starseeds instinctively know that we are all connected and this means a connection to nature and animals too. Animals are very drawn to Starseeds and Starseeds regenerate their energies best when they are out among nature.

Wise old soul

Starseeds are old souls and they carry the wisdom of the universe within them. Starseeds seem wise beyond their years and they feel comfortable in the presence of people much older than they are.


Starseeds are very spiritual people. They know there is life outside of Earth and they know there is a deeper meaning to life. Many Starseeds explore forms of spirituality and have an interest in astrology and occultism.


Starseeds are natural healers and may also be drawn to holistic health. Many Starseeds have healing powers and this can be at a spiritual, emotional and physical level.

Fascination with ancient civilisations

Starseeds have a natural fascination with the oldest civilisations and may take an interest in Greek or Egyptian civilisations specifically. Many Starseeds have the knowledge of Atlantis or Lemuria in their DNA and so they may gravitate towards knowledge of this too.

Connection to Spirit

Along with their spiritual interests, Starseeds find it easy to tap into Spirit which includes their intuitive side. They have powerful gut feelings and often sense things that others can’t.

Connect easily to crystals

Crystals are an ancient gift to the Earth and Starseeds find it very easy to connect to crystals and work with them.

Interest in aliens

Starseeds may be drawn to films or books about aliens. They may love reading about theories of life on other planets. They may feel drawn to a particular planet or immerse themselves in galactic topics as this brings them a sense of familiarity.

Feeling out of place as a child

Many Starseeds know from an early age that they are different. They may be especially quiet among their peers and prefer their own company or they may struggle with attention issues and find their minds wandering often! These are often very creative children and Starseed children have often been misdiagnosed with personality disorders.

The Gift of the Starseed

Starseeds are here on this planet now because they are here to help Mankind ascend into the New Age. Their presence brings comfort to the Earth. When a Starseed realises their true purpose, they become a beacon of light, using their special abilities to help others where it is needed.

Starseeds know they are here for a mission. In younger years, many Starseeds may struggle with who they are as they try to find their place in this world. Some may come to resent humans but in maturity they realise that they are here to help them and this activated wisdom enables them to shine their gifts brighter than ever.

This is a special time in the history of the Earth. As we move forward, we come to realise the importance of love, compassion and understanding. Material needs are at the forefront of human priority now but as we ascend further, we will come to realise the value of our spiritual selves and who we are on the inside. Starseeds are here to help us realise this process. If your life is touched by a Starseed, you will know. And if you are a Starseed, always remember that you are here for a reason and you are more valued than you could ever know.
