Let’s get started!

Which Starseed Am I? The Ultimate Guide to Starseed Types

Before we get into the different starseed types, it’s helpful to know what I actually mean with a starseed type. 

What are starseed types?

The term “starseed types” is used to describe a collective of spiritual beings that originate from different locations in the Universe.

They are sent to our planet to carry out a certain mission, and mostly to help guide the inhabitants of Earth through transitional periods. They do this using their deep wisdom gained from the experiences in their worlds.

Starseeds understand the interconnectedness of all life-forms, and this inspires them to come to our planet. They know that no being is separate from the whole, and therefore aspire to help us on planet Earth, promoting unity and improving the state of our planet.

“The only useful purpose of the present birth is to turn within and realize the Self. There is nothing else to do.”

– Sri Ramana Maharshi

As our planet enters a vitally important transitional phase, human beings need guidance to ensure that they don’t repeat past mistakes and to create a worldly environment where all beings thrive.

Your starseed type indicates the star system that you originated from, and also gives you a clear idea of why you chose to come to planet Earth.

The list of starseed races is extensive, but there are some that are more likely to show up on this planet, while others are more likely to incarnate somewhere else within the Universe.

How Do I Find Out My Starseed Soul Origin?

Figuring out which starseed type you are shouldn’t be too difficult, but it does require some deep self-reflection.

You will need to analyze your personality and be honest with yourself about your inner world to truly know which type you belong to.

By having the suspicion that you are a starseed, you’ve already taken a significant step towards realizing your true nature.

“You are physical beings in this physical dimension – because you have intended it to be that way. As you are experiencing this life experience, you are fulfilling that decision that you have set forth prior to your physical birth.”

– Abraham Hicks

Knowing your starseed type is a transformative realization. Suddenly, you are blessed with a feeling of clarity, a deep-seated knowing, and a desire to go out into the world and do exactly what you came here to do.

Check out the video below or continue reading to find out your starseed origin.


Starseed types are often very well hidden beneath the veil of form that we call a “human being”.

Learning your starseed type is a personal experience, but you might find that you begin to recognize other starseeds once your awareness increases.

It’s a revelation that can have a similarly powerful effect that learning about numerology does.

However, it is not your job to decide whether other people belong to a certain starseed type. Their realization must come as a result of their natural curiosity, just like yours did.

Certain practices can inspire the deep self-reflection that leads to realizing that you are a starseed. Meditation is one of the most effective methods, and you can learn how to meditate correctly in my Youtube video.

    Hi Julia:
    I found your website by chance. I wish I could tell you my story, but long story short, now I know I’m not crazy!!! I feel I’m an Andromedan Starseed. I am not tall and thin (actually the total opposite), but I have always been attracted to tall men. Now, the trait that called to me was, the heart of a child. I’m 55, and everyone has always been amassed at my child like outlook about everything. It is so cool to finally understand my fascination with space, stars, the Universe, mother Earth. Thank you so much Starseed sister. Thank you for opening my eyes.
