This Is How Old Your Soul Is, Based On Your Zodiac Sign



(March 21st to April 19th)

You’re a young spirit. 

Aries are adventurous, curious and wide-eyed, and this never really goes away. To be an Aries is to retain a sense of wonder throughout your life. You’re someone who is always yearning for more, and gets really, really excited over the simple (read: stupid little) things in life. You’re a gem, Aries. Embrace it.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You’re in adolescence. 

You’re not quite a young soul, but you don’t embody the characteristics of an old one, either. Your life is about creating beauty and learning how to lead and share with the people who are close to you. You are always learning about yourself, and discovering a new layer of your sensitive nature. You’re more in a “discovering” stage than a “becoming” one, and you have a unique advantage with this, as you’re well aware that you can work toward creating whatever you damn well please.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You’re an angsty teen.

You’re emotionally all over the place, but you’re also a game-changer. You are hungry to learn, create, build friendships, question the powers-that-be, and discover yourself – and yes, sometimes that occurs through deep self-doubt. You are inherently rebellious, and refuse to accept things at face-value. You’re always working on yourself, and even though you struggle with the roller coaster that is your mental-emotional life, you have good intentions at heart.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You’re an older, cooler, more mature teen.

You still have your emotional meltdowns here and there, but you know that nothing matters more than your friends and your boyfriend/girlfriend, and you’re determined to create a life that feels totally like your own. You’re past the part where being all over the place appeals to you: you’re ready to steady your life, and discover who you are in the process.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You’re a defiant young 20-something. 

You know what you want, you know who you are, and damn to anyone who is going to tell you otherwise. You’re at the stage where you’re stepping into your first real job, you’re high on your new-found independence, and you want to ride this for as long as you possibly can. It’s not that you don’t want to grow up, but that you’re straddling the perfect spot of “youth” and “freedom,” and it’s right where you’ve wanted to be all along.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You’re the 20-something that’s going to travel to “find themselves” and do community service. 

You’re at the phase in your 20s where you’ve started to see the greater meaning in life, and no longer put so much stock into achieving things for the sake of it or stoking your ego. You’re more interested now in how you can become who you truly are and help those around you. You’re done with the BS, it’s time to live. 


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You’re the young 30-something that thinks they’re super sophisticated.

You’re 30. That means you regularly employ Cosmo sex moves in the bedroom like it’s no big deal, have a distinctly “grown up” home, your go-to drink is no longer something tropical, and you have a few noteworthy résumé points that you like to bring up at regular intervals. You’re ready to kick back and admire everything you’ve worked toward. Sure, you’re still driven to accomplish more, but you appreciate that fine balance of enjoying what you already have, too.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You’re midlife crisis age. 

This isn’t to say that you’re destined to be unsure and unhappy forever, but it is to say that you’re definitely more inclined to be suspicious, impulsive, jealous and rash, especially when you’re triggered by something. You’re out for blood, and you’re not going to play by anybody else’s rules but your own. You spent too much of your life trying to appeal to other people, and now it’s time for you to do what you really want and be who you really are.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You’re a 40-something who likes to contemplate life. 

You, Sagittarius, are rounding into form. You’re past all of the trials and crises of your 20s and 30s, and now you’re someone who likes to travel, has a wide selection of reading material on hand at all times, is interested in a variety of topics “for the sake of it,” and wonder consistently about things like how successful business owners construct their daily routines.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You’re in your golden years. 

You are sooo done with all of this human drama, and you’re ready to ascend to a better way of living and thinking, one that involves disengaging from negativity and working earnestly toward your goals. You’re also a little low-key jaded.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You’re like, 75 and trying to make sure you leave a legacy behind. 

You’ve been through a lot. You’ve lived and laughed and learned and now the majority of your time is spent soaking up what you have left to spend with the people you love, and making sure that you leave a legacy that is larger than you behind. Your energy is focused on the “bigger picture” at all times. You’re trying to use what you’ve learned to fuel your vision(s).


(February 19th to March 20th)

You’re ancient. 

You are the old person who has ceased to give anymore f*#ks. You dance when you want to, create for the sake of it, and impart your vast and profound knowledge upon anyone who asks (and sometimes people who don’t). You’re here to connect with your inner creative genius, experience the true essence of life, and feel the extent of your potential. You’ve been through enough, and you’ve come out the other end transformed, and ready to return to your true, joyous, creative, childlike state.
