Have you ever felt as though you don’t belong on this planet? As though you don’t fit in with the rest of the human race?
If you answered yes, you might be a Starseed.
If you’re an emotional person who regularly brings hope to the direst of situations and feels extremes of emotions until you’re literally fit to burst… you might be an Arcturian Starseed.
Let’s now explore the characteristics, traits and markings of being an Arcutiran Starssed.
What Is an Arcturian Starseed?
An Arcturian Starseed is – quite literally – a seed from the Arcturian star, located in the Boötes constellation.
If you are an Arcturian, you (your soul/spirit/energy) originate from that star, and you have been reincarnated on Earth to learn a lesson, serve a purpose, or complete a mission.
As if keeping the house clean, holding down a job, remembering to eat three times a day, and getting all the laundry done aren’t already enough of a mission in life!
That won’t bother you though, my Arcturian friend.
You are a master at juggling life, somehow managing to piece everything together.
Not everyone gets to see the breakdowns when the door closes, though… which is probably for the best.
In all seriousness, you probably won’t be aware of the purpose, lesson, or meaning you’re in the middle of working through.
Ninety-nine percent of Starseeds aren’t even aware that the concept exists.
It’s only when they start to get tired of feeling ‘different’ alone and start looking for answers.
Arcturian Starseed Symbol
There is no set symbol for Arcturians or most other Starseeds.
It’s difficult to put so many things into one symbol – all the lessons learned, wisdom gained, lives lived.
It’s also possible for one Starseed to feel an affinity towards more than one star. So one symbol, again, wouldn’t necessarily work.
This doesn’t mean that Arcturians are scattered and unsure, though.
It just means that they have traveled to different stars throughout their different lives, a piece of their soul still holding on to it when they left.
Arcturian Starseed Traits
Arcturian Starseeds are emotional people… and they’re not always great at handling those emotions or expressing them to other people.
They’re often classed as feisty, headstrong, and hysterical/emotional.
Emotional outbursts are common, as well as bottling up emotions and frustrations until there’s no more space inside and the inevitable outcome is a huge explosion.
This Starseed is sometimes called flaky by friends, as they’re quick to become overwhelmed and leave social events early or quickly, or not turning up at all.
It’s easy for them to make friends, but it’s also easy for them to lose friends, too.
The hide-away, come-back-out process that many Arcturians go through means friendships fade away into history on a regular occasion.
Sometimes, these extremes are thought of as negative, but if you’re a Starseed, you’re on Earth to learn a lesson.
You can learn to control those emotions; that is perhaps the thing you’re meant to learn in this cycle of your life.
Am I An Arcturian Starseed? 13 Characteristics
The best way to work out which Starseed you are, is to read the traits associated with each one, and pay close attention to the ones that speak to you in some way.
If it doesn’t feel relatable or pull you towards it, it’s likely not the Starseed for you.
But let’s find out if you’re an Arcturian Starseed.
1) Are You Always Aware of Danger?
Arcturians are believed to be incredibly aware Starseeds.
Knowing what’s going on around them and being able to almost sense when something bad or upsetting is going to happen.
This could be down to the next Arcturian trait too, however…
2) Are You Also Spiritually Aware?
Do you just *know* when something is going to happen?
- A text message on your phone, for example?
- Or a feeling that a situation is going to go in a certain direction?
That might be your spiritual awareness, and if you tend to *know* things a lot more than other people do, you might be an Arcturian Starseed.
3) Do Your Friends Call You “Sensitive”?
There’s nothing wrong with being sensitive. The world would not go ’round without the sensitive souls on this planet.
They’re the ones with bucketloads of empathy, who always go out of their way to help others, and who feel the pain of others so deeply it could almost be their own.
Sensitivity and empathy towards other people are huge character traits for Arcturian Starseeds.
They can often be seen as somewhat cold, distant, and aloof, but deep down they have the biggest hearts. They’re just vulnerable people, that’s all.
4) Are You Always the ‘Leader’?
If you’re the natural leader in your group or friends, family members, or other acquaintances, there’s a chance that you are an Arcturian Starseed.
You don’t even need to be a leader in a sense of leading other people; you might be a leader of yourself.
Maybe you don’t like to live by the normal rules and are always looking for something a little ‘outside the box‘.
Either way, Arcturians are in control… or they like to be.
5) Do You Crush Goals?
Alternatively, are you obsessed with setting goals, attempting to reach them, actually reaching them… or failing to reach them?
Arcturian Starseeds are known for being incredibly goal-orientated. Probably because they’re not held back by worrying about their emotions.
Arcturians aren’t great at coping with big emotions, remember.
You might be briefly blindsided by passing distractions, but it won’t take you long to knuckle down and get right back to work.
You have goals to reach, things to do, and boxes to check off.
6) Are You the Brightest Star?
Even when you’d rather not be, are you the brightest star in most rooms or conversations? (It’s okay to be a little boastful for a second. In fact, I encourage it.)
Arcturus is the brightest star in the Boötes constellation, and I have personally spent many hours staring at it, through my telescope.
It’s bright orange, which makes it easy for me to find, and it’s also one of the top five brightest stars in the night sky.
Fun fact: Despite being orange in color, Arcturus is actually a “red giant” star.
If you’d rather hide away in the background but always find yourself pulled to the forefront, it could be because of your bright Arcturian light.
It is both a blessing and a curse for some.
7) Would Someone Describe You As “a Joy”?
In the same way you could be the brightest star in the room, you might also be the greatest joy.
Polynesian navigators in prehistoric times referred to Arcturus as “Star of Joy“, and they used it to navigate the waters around Tahiti, Hawaii, Marquesas Islands, and other areas of the Pacific.
As well as someone’s joy, perhaps you are also their guiding light, just as Arcturus was to those old-time navigators.
Are you the one that people turn to in a crisis?
Do you always seem to have the right answers… for everyone but yourself?
8) Do You Like Order and Neatness?
And by like, I actually mean need. You *need* order around you.
You might not be the tidiest person in the world, but when it’s your mess, you know where everything is.
Arcturian Starseeds really appreciate when things are as they should be, nicely lined up, and neatly in order.
When things are the opposite, chaotic and lost items, Arcturians can get incredibly stressed out, incredibly quickly.
This then leads to those emotional outbursts that keep coming up.
Does this sound like you?
9) Are You a Customizer?
Do you constantly add patches or other tweaks to your clothes, stick badges on bags, or revamp your vehicle until it barely looks like the original?
Those are all Arcturian traits. They look at something and see how they can make it better, prettier, more effective, faster, etc.
That’s not a bad thing, of course!
Wanting to go further, learn more, and constantly improve is how new ways of thinking (or doing) come into play.
And they’re often much better ways of thinking (or doing) than before, which means everybody wins.
10) Are You the ‘Hopeful’ One?
If you’re the one who always brings hope to impossible situations, you might be an Arcturian Starseed.
They are known for coming up with solutions to even the weirdest and toughest of problems. If they can’t, they’ll keep their spirits high until they can.
Arcturians are the warriors and protectors of the Starseed world.
They’ll probably crack a few jokes as they do their protecting.
11) Do You Have a Passion for Astrology?
- Do you read your horoscope every day, without fail?
- Do you constantly find ways that it fits with your life, and almost lead your life by what the zodiac suggests?
If so, you might be – yes, you’ve guessed it – an Arcturian Starseed.
Not just astrology, Arcturians are into all things numbers, patterns, and code.
They love logic and things that make sense, and things that don’t make sense might make them feel a little uneasy.
If there’s ever a pattern to be found, you can pretty much guarantee that the Arcturian in your friendship circle will find it!
12) Are You Mesmerized by Stars in the Night Sky?
Do you feel drawn to them, unable to stop staring at them, maybe even spending night after night looking through a telescope?
If yes, you might be an Arcturian Starseed. You’re more than likely a Starseed of some type, anyway!
Being not from this planet, you’re constantly longing to go back home. You don’t realize this, of course.
You think you are ‘home’ because you’re in a human form. Deep down though, you’re desperate to get back there.
That’s why you feel such an affinity to either the star, the constellation, or ‘out there’ in space.
13) How Do You Feel About Jasper?
Arcturian Starseeds are very often drawn to all things gemstone and crystal related — whether it’s geographically, spiritually, emotionally, or in any other way.
Jasper, particularly, is said to ‘speak’ to them, drawing them in.
The Arcturian Starseed Mission and Purpose
The personal mission and purpose of Arcturian is to learn a way to cope, regulate, and express emotions… which is something they’re not exactly known for.
In fact, Arcturians have some of the biggest emotional and spiritual problems, which is perhaps why their mission here on Earth is to solve problems.
The mission of the Arcturian people is to find a way in which the spiritual world can live alongside and in harmony with the technological one… which isn’t always easy.
Can I Be Arcturian and Another Starseed?
Yes, you absolutely can. As previously mentioned, Starseeds can often spend lives on different planets and stars before coming to spend some time on Earth.
They simply pick up a little bit of everywhere as they go.
Can Arcturians Have Lasting Relationships?
Although a somewhat troubled Starseed in an emotional sense, Arcturians can indeed have long, healthy and fulfilling relationships with other Starseeds and non-Starseeds.
Many will be scared of getting hurt (again…) and could push the ones they love away to try and avoid it happening again.
Arcturians require patience and time, and if someone can give them that, they’ll give the whole world right back.
